After accepted in Yale School of music, I continue my passion for teaching as secondary piano lesson instructor at Yale University, teaching Yale undergrads with passion for music.

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it's important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. I emphasize the importance of basics therefore I usually spend more time developing a solid fundamental skillI that allows my students

Dan knows how to do everything! I consider myself an advanced student, and he's able to clearly answer all of my questions and show me examples on the fly! I highly recommend him, especially if you're eager to learn quickly
Susan B.
Dan is an excellent instructor. Although I have played the piano for years, my technical skills and understanding of music theory have improved exponentially through my work with Dan. He is particularly accomplished at using multiple approaches to explain difficult concepts to ensure that I fully understand them. I highly recommend him.
Nicola H.
Have had a few lessons with Dan so far and nothing to complain about. Really this is the type of teacher I'm looking for the whole time as an adult beginner. He knows what he is doing and how to push you to the next level.

Whether you're a beginner or intermediate my piano lessons cater to both!

All ages are welcome! We will definitely learn songs, but in order to truly become an amazing musician you must also focus on building strong technique. Taking lessons with me will ensure that you’ll be able to learn songs and parts by ear. No more tabs! Here’s what we’ll focus on:
- building technique
- transcribing songs and solos
- learning theory
- ear training
- learning to read

Feel free to message me at any time if you have any questions!

Noah is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. He makes sure you have rock solid base to work off of if you are complete beginner.
Christine
I have really appreciated Noah's expertise and knowledge to help me make progress. More importantly, however, he is very patient and encouraging which is needed when one is lacking confidence and finding it challenging to learn new skills.
Ryan
Noah is a fantastic instructor. I really appreciated that he balanced an understanding of music/music theory, and getting right into playing to keep you motivated. He’s very respectful, patient, and clearly an expert at what he does. Highly, highly recommend him.

I have taught piano since 2012. I prefer to take beginners, and I do especially well with younger students. I believe strongly in integrating music theory and ultimately moving students toward musical self-suffiency, rather than focusing exclusively on learning particular pieces.

Piano has been my source of great joy, relaxation and means to collaborate with other musicians, as a spur to dance, since I was 7.

About Deirdre

Languages have always fascinated me. Traveling a lot as a child, I studied French, German, and Twi when I had a semester studying dance & drumming in Ghana. The other two constants have been piano and dance. Classical Spanish music is what originally hooked me on the piano and later the world of fla

My teaching philosophy centers on engaging each students at their current level of development and isolating what specifically motivates them to pursue music - focusing on their strengths while developing them holistically as musicians and artists. In addition to technique and performance skills with their voice or the piano, I also incorporate musicianship-building units including aural skills (ear training), sight reading and sight singing, music theory, and music history into each lesson.

I look forward to working with you and continuing your unique musical journey.

As an adult re-leaning piano I was a little nervous but immediately she made me feel comfortable, utilizing my previous experiences and my progression to challenge me continuously. She is so patient and will keep motivating you to reach your goal, whatever it may be. Natasha also writes everything down which is really helpful for review and shows her true knowledge of music theory and application. I highly recommend her as a piano teacher.

"Troy is an outstanding teacher with a passion for music that translates through his teaching.

I have been working with Troy for about 4 months now and I have been making progress at an incredible speed. He is very meticulous in his teachings in the best way and he doesn't let you get away with technical errors without correcting them. He is truly passionate about music and teaching it and will go to any length for his student as long as they are willing to do the same. He always has great insight to the pieces you learn, even at the beginner level, so you don't just learn how to play a song, but you learn where it came from and what it may have been intended for. He doesn't just teach you what keys to play and when, but he constantly encourages you to bring emotion and character to your playing as well, which can be difficult to do with beginner pieces but somehow he had me playing the simplest of songs with feelings and style behind them. He is very patient with his students and constantly encouraging and uplifting. He will not let a lesson go by without giving you positive feedback, even if you come to a lesson completely unprepared because you haven't practiced since you last saw him.

I would highly recommend Troy to anyone that is interested in learning music the right way. He is a quality music professional and will do everything in his power to give you the best education you can receive.

(Note: The only reason I rated teaching environment "Good" instead of "Excellent" is because he has cats so if you have allergies, it might not be the best fit for you.)"
