A teacher of mine once said if you aim for perfection, you get to be pretty darn good. I like to start with a small amount of material that the student can play very well, and use that to refine the basics. By taking a thorough approach (and playing beautiful music), the entire world of piano and music will slowly and surely open up to the pupil.

In my opinion, tone production and rhythm are the major factors that distinguish a great pianist (and make playing the most satisfying), so this is the major focus of our work. I have a very thorough understanding of proper technique and can prescribe exercises that will strengthen one's weaknesses.

I also have a unique background in that I studied jazz improvisation and classical composition, so I understand the inner workings of the music and can improvise in the styles (jazz, classical, baroque, romantic).

I have experience teaching students of all ages and was formerly a keyboard instructor at NYU where I taught keyboard skills classes and private lessons. I'm also well-versed in the Taubman Approach--a biomechanically sound approach to piano technique that allows pianists to play with ease and free of tension and pain.
My ultimate goal as a piano teacher is to teach my students how to learn, practice, and express music effectively in a welcoming and collaborative lesson environment. I believe that regardless of age students learn best when they actively engage in their learning through discovery, problem-solving, and creativity. Beyond just introducing and discovering new musical concepts, I guide students on how to practice during their lesson by showing them how to approach new music and how to organize their practice time for the most efficient results. And most importantly, I make sure that students are developing healthy physical habits at the piano so that they can have a ...

Evelyn is very sweet and encouraging and made my first lesson so much fun. After my seven year hiatus from studying piano, she quickly assessed my strengths and weaknesses and created an action plan. She assigned beautiful pieces and really crammed a lot into an hour session. Feeling very excited to continue working with her.

I went through 3 other instructors, all claiming to have their own patented method of teaching piano, but all of them left me frustrated and without clear direction. Maria understands the necessary path. She enlightens and inspires me every week with the timeless beauty of piano. With her by my side, I believe I can realize my dream.""

"Susan's instruction and mentorship has been transformational for my daughter's evolution as a classical pianist. The depth of articulation in her performance and the musicality in her playing she owes to Susan. Susan not only teaches with real dedication, but she also inspires her students to reach and keep attaining new heights in their piano performance. She demands commitment from her students, but is always encouraging and ensures her students gain confidence and a strong foundation in music education. Susan has extensive experience in teaching and her students do very well in piano competitions."
