Composer/Arranger/Theorist/Instructor/Pianist/Percussionist of 19 years. Very caring, energetic, and patient. I can teach you how to play your favorite songs, I can teach you to write your own songs, and I can teach you how to improvise like a pro! I am experienced in teaching classical technique as well as pop, and all styles from jazz to contemporary. I also integrate a healthy amount of music theory in lessons, which really solidifies your understanding of how music works. You'll be writing your own piano concertos in no time!

Brittney is an excellent teacher. She is so nice and she helped my daughter figure the parts that were difficult for her. My daughter’s last teacher made her really upset, but after Brittney’s lesson, my daughter was really happy. I definitely reoccurrence you take lessons with her.

Private Piano Teacher

My students receive individualized lessons based on their interest and ability. They learn to read music notation, play core piano literature, learn theory, music history, and composition.
All students participate in a yearly recital and have the option of entering the NJMTA Piano Festival to be adjudicated each year.
I have a two-fold goal with each student: that she or he become an excellent musician, and that we have fun together as that happens.

Rodolfo teached my daughter and her vocals has improved, she is more confident and she has learned a lot of singing tricks. Thank you Rodolfo with all of your patience, creativity, your positivity and encouragement my daughter has learned a lot from you. He is an amazing teacher.
Daniel
I started with Rodolfo as a music producer that wanted to sing. I came as a complete novice but Rodolfo was very patient with me, teaching me more exercises every week based on my weaknesses improving my pitch and tone. Now Rodolfo has started helping me learn songwriting and is helping me add my vocals to my own music, as well as helping me find my own musical identity. I can't say enough good things about the lessons and no matter your skill level I'm sure Rodolfo will help you learn and grow.

Sue
My son has been taking lessons from Cristina for 2 years and wow has he progressed. He loves his lessons, can read music, and is playing well. The struggle is getting him to practice! Cristina has a great blend of warmth, knowledge and discipline that works well for my 6,7, and now 8 year old son. I highly recommend her.
Sarah
Our 8 year old had been taking violin for two years and was about to the point of quitting due to the lack of motivational teaching. I went in search of a teacher that could motivate her while still progressing rapidly each week! My daughter is so eager to please Cristina, because she makes the lessons fun and interesting. When I check in to see how the lesson is going, my daughter is engaged, and answering questions correctly which tells me she's still paying attention - even in the evening hours when she's tired. Cristina mixes classical and popular music as well. I still have to ask my daughter to practice each night but she pulls out her violin on her own a couple of times a week as well. It's a complete 180 from where we were 8 months ago. Cristina is a rare find and I'd recommend her to anyone who wants to ensure their child is getting the best violin training while being inspired!
Everett
Our 11 year old daughter, Drew, started with Cristina for a little over a year, and has made some amazing progress from not knowing how to play, to having great intonation and musicality. Cristina teaches our daughter in a way that works with her interests and learning style, rather than having a regimented curriculum. I think this has allowed Drew to be way more excited about playing.

i've been playing music all my life but since i'm a square parent, it's hard for me to teach drew :) Cristina does a great job giving her guidance during the lesson.
i would highly recommend her as a teacher!

"My two kids have now had five piano lessons with Drew and we have booked further.
My impression on day one had been that he is highly motivated, energetic and professional. His relative youth combined with authority makes him a great teacher for teens. First impressions were correct.
My kids like him a lot and they are already playing recognizable tunes. :)
I heartily recommend Drew for Flute and Piano."

As a beginner, learning how to read sheet music for piano is one of the first things you'll work on with your teacher.
