From age seven, I have performed piano at concerts and piano competitions, playing solo, in small groups or with orchestra. Studying piano performance at the School for Talented Children for eleven years and later at music conservatory, I was groomed to perform piano on stage. In short, I have the personal experience that I apply to teaching piano performance. Specifically, I teach my students how to memorize music pieces, how to develop proper phrasing and how to convey emotion and beauty of a particular piece to the audience. I also help students who want to obtain certificates from Associated Board of Royal School of Music (ABRSM) or Trinity College London (TCL) to excel in these examinations.

About Ruth

I have played piano since I was six years old, when my parents enrolled me in my first music classes. I continued my music education while going to elementary, middle, and high school. Ultimately, I graduated with a Master's Degree in Music from Butler University, located in Indianapolis, Indiana

Ruth has been a wonderful teacher for my 12 year old son Vivek for the last 3 years in Princeton. She made learning piano a truly enjoyable experience for him and always teaches with patience and kindness. We are planning to move overseas and hope to switch to online lessons so he can continue to learn from Ms Ruth!
Wallis
I have been with Ruth for about 4 months but I am very happy to say that her dedication and attention to detail has given me the impetus to want to keep learning encouraged by her thorough experience. She is a great teacher.
Igor
Ruth is a fantastic piano teacher. She is very patient and tailors her instruction to the age and capabilities of each child. Our 6yo daughter has been taking lessons with Ruth for a year and loves it, and we've really been amazed at how quickly she has advanced. Ruth is a perfect blend of kindness, patience, and a rigorous and strong training program. We are always impressed with the quality of the performances of Ruth's students (whose ages range from about 5-16) at the annual concert that she organizes. Ruth also teaches adults! If you are in the Princeton/Plainsboro area and looking for piano lessons, we highly recommend Ruth!

I teach my students about the anatomy of breathing and tone production, focusing on breath energy and a released sound. I am careful to assign repertoire that is at my students' level, challenging them musically but not going beyond what is appropriate for their vocal development. This avoids tension and injury and inspires confidence as students study music that they are able to sing well.

I teach classical and opera singing styles. I do not teach Broadway or pop singing. I accept voice students ages twelve and older. I encourage younger students interested in voice lessons to consider joining a choir and/or taking lessons on another instrument instead. In my professional opinion, the voice is not sufficiently developed in younger singers and there is a greater risk of injury in private voice lessons. In a choir, children are directed to sing in a healthy way for their age and learn valuable musicianship and aural skills.

Voice lessons will include information on achieving and ...

We love coming to see Dena. We are only able to come once a month, but with all the techniques she gives to my 10 year old daughter, there is plenty to practice & she is already growing in her singing after less then 5 lessons. I would recommend anyone looking for a kind & excellent vocal instructor in our area to come to Dena. We are excited to continue our vocal journey with her.

A wonderful teacher and perfect for kids!

Dena is very knowledgeable about singing and the art of using your voice. She’s versatile and brings out the best in a student. Excited to work with her again.

Trombone is such a fun instrument and it's really much easier to learn than you might think. I'll be able to share with you my more than 35 years of experience playing trombone, whether you're a begginer or a seasoned professional.

If you're just beginning, I like to use the Essential Elements band methods but I supplement it with tips and tricks you can only get from a trombone player to speed up the learning process.

If you're an intermediate or advanced player, we will stick with the classics: Arban, Schlossberg, Remington, Marsteller, Rochut, etc. And you'll learn how using your air properly can solve SO many problems you'll wonder why nobody ever mentioned it to you before!

Flute is an unique instrument itself, so flute lessons are an unique and a beautiful experience for anyone who likes music too. I am teaching all levels, from absolute beginners to advanced flute players and strive to make my lessons interesting by treating every student in a different way, because every person has their own way of understanding music, a different way of thinking and a different goal.

"I can't recommend Mike enough! I always wanted to learn drums but it felt daunting and somewhat inaccessible to me. From my first lesson with Mike, that changed completely. I left his studio feeling like I could absolutely learn to play. In just one lesson I learned a lot about proper technique, reading music, etc. without feeling overwhelmed or bored. Mike explains everything clearly while also making it fun to learn. And, most importantly, he has a clear (and proven) structure to his lesson plans. Concepts are taught in a cumulative manner so that each lesson you make progress towards a clearly defined goal - a goal that you get to help define, be it a specific song you want to learn or a certain skill/level to attain. Mike is knowledgeable about the subject matter and provides insightful tips and homework to make sure you're learning the right skills in a fun and challenging manner. If you want to learn drums, Mike is your guy."

5 Essential Classical Guitar Exercises | Sheet Music and Video

  Earlier, we took a look at how to develop your right hand for classical guitar. In this article, guitar teacher Raymond L. will add to the balance by teaching you exercises for the left hand... The classical guitar repertoire covers more scales and arpeggios than any other technical skill. Therefore, I consider it important for you, as a classical guitar player or student, to focus on these following exercises. They're based on scales and arpeggios for the purpose of developing …
