Wow! I adore Keith. He’s so patient & knowledgeable. The lessons are constructed according to the students pace. I’ve learned more in just 2 lessons with him than I did with weeks of online courses. Would definitely recommend!

I didn’t have any musical background but always wanted to try. And I got so lucky to met Keith. He is very encouraging and scrupulous teacher. We have piano and singing lessons, he offers me to practice songs and melodies that I like but makes sure that I get all the basics right. And the best part is that he loves playing and teaching music, which creates a great atmosphere in the class

Fay is an amazing teacher that gives her student's the ability to progress and I can't even begin to describe how much I've improved because of her help.
Kevin
An amazing teacher that helps you progress as a performer. Piano has been such a fun instrument to play and amazing considering the techniques taught by her! Her lessons are so fun as well as educational.
Kevin
Fay is such an amazing teacher! I got into Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School thanks to her. Best Teacher I've had, she helps train your voice and goes through the vocal anatomy so you understand techniques such as proper breathing, posture, coordination, grounding, acting, diction...etc. I've been her student for about a year three years now and I have to say that my voice has improved so much as a performer all thanks to her! If you get the chance, at least take a class, you will not regret it!

I am excited for you to start in a new direction with music.
In order to ensure that you or your child gets the most effective and creative teaching possible; your lessons will be constructed with a simple to follow format. This will enable the student to follow through when practicing and be able to advance quickly.
I am all about developing a new generation of music-minded students who get to balance education with all the fun and awesomeness of being in a great jam session alone or with others.
I have an enthusiasm for music that is infectious. I teach with humor and analogies. I use all the experiences and techniques to implement a personalized program for my students. From beginner to master studies.
I believe the transfer of musical knowledge is a profound commitment that will help my students in the true enjoyment of their instrument and a hobby to last a lifetime. I can hear someone play and watch their fingers and prescribe the correct routine and pieces to help them ...

Ms Teresa is awesome! She has taught my daughter how to play both Piano and guitar. I love that she actually teaches the music and explains things not just how to play the song!
Michael
I started trying to teach myself piano until I met Ms. Arth. On the very FIRST lesson she pointed out some bad habits and quickly resolved them. This allowed me to reevaluate my technique and iron out the basics. I plan on continuing my studies with Ms.Arth and I highly recommend her for any student beginner or advanced. Totally 💯 satisfied!!!!
Donna
Teresa has been amazing helping Lily learning piano. Her self esteem has grown so much. I love that the students learn multiple instruments.

I decided to take up cello at age 57 as a new instrument. Melissa did a great job teaching proper technique and method and was really aware of my personal goals for what I wanted to achieve. She has a great gentle and encouraging demeanor. I would highly recommend Melissa.

"Anna Petkova has been teaching my son play piano for the past three years. He started playing since the age of five. Anna has been playing a crucial role in my son's love of music. Anna has been studying and playing piano professionally and her teaching program reflects her knowledge of music. She develops her students based on their skills, talents and desire to learn. She is patient, very positive and encouraging. Anna personalizes her lessons based on a child's preference and interests in particular musical pieces so that children are personally vested in the success. My son's talent in playing piano blossomed for the past three years due to the awesome teacher that we have!! I would highly recommend Anna Petkova to anyone considering taking piano lessons."

How to Mimic the Practice Habits of Collegiate Piano Students

Practice - it’s something that most developing pianists generally dread.  But there is a place where practice time is a precious commodity - the music conservatory.  During my time as an undergraduate piano major, signing up and getting time to reserve a practice room was a ritual in patience, cunning, and bargaining. Because there were limited spaces for students to obtain the time they needed to prepare for tests, juries, and performances, every moment to prepare at a piano was preci …
