On a more personal note, a bit of how I met Cândida. I first started playing piano a long time ago but, after a couple of years, quit and never tried again. I had been willing to get back to classes for a while but hesitated several times. Cândida played a central role in encouraging me to do that and making me comfortable in this new beginning. Our connection was immediate and I have been taking lessons with her since then. During this time, it has also been very inspiring to learn from such a young yet experienced musician. Her method is very practical: although it is naturally easier to interact in in-presence, her Skype lessons really work. She has also been very flexible with regards to schedule. And, most importantly, always welcomes you to class with a bright Brazilian smile.
Again, could not recommend her more! Enjoy!"
And they're not alone!

I absolutely adore to teach and was fortunate enough to watch my parents teach both in home and at a university level from a very young age. I am committed to develop love and appreciation in music in all my students & I accommodate each student's learning
I provide my own instrument and educational materials, student must provide their instrument and music stand, and preferably a stereo system if possible.
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz and improvisation in addition to all varieties of trombone playing (jazz, classical, latin, show band, pop, etc). My methodology is of finding out the strengths and weaknesses of the student and addressing their needs in particular.
I'm a versatile player, comfortable teaching a wide variety of styles at all levels.
*** Lesson Deta
I'm a laid back teacher with an easy going nature, but I do expect my students to put time into their practicing. I customize my curriculum based on your needs. If you are a complete beginner who really has a desire to learn the instrument, we will focus on technique, theory and improvisation as it applies to your favorite styles and songs.
For students who want to play more casually, we will focus on mastering techniques that will get you playing your favorite tunes while bypassing the theoretical aspects.
Intermediate/Advanced students are welcome to choose the areas they feel they need to improve, whether it's understanding how to apply modes to your soloing or developing a fluid sweeping technique.
My home studio has a spare guitar and amp for your convenience.
*** Studio Equipment ***
space with instruments seating for parents
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Rock/Metal/Blues but can teach all genres comfortably.
My method is custom tailored to the student. If gaining a deep knowledge of the instrument is his/her goal I focus on technique, theory, and application through improvisation. If a student would rather learn their favorite songs I spend the majority of the time focusing on the techniques needed to perform the tune and pepper in a little theory where applicable.

So,at the beginning, Adam patiently taught me music theory and the technique to play guitar. During the lessons, I have asked him basic questions about music theory time and again, and he patiently explained the concepts to me. Also, sometimes, I asked him to explain me the song composition (chord structure , melody , bass and etc) of some random songs, and he quickly broke it down in the class and showed me how the song is constructed.
One thing I like about the class structure is that Adam gives you the freedom to choose the lesson content. And, then he slowly nudges you on the right path. In terms of scheduling a lesson, Adam is very accommodating, and he accommodated my every request to change the schedule.
Another thing I would like to mention is Adam's depth of knowledge in terms of music history. Adam always explained me the music concepts by telling me how they got introduced into the music culture.
I will recommend Adam to anyone who wants to learn music.

All in all I've taught for about seven years, and I went to school here in NYC at Mannes and Juilliard. And as a graduate of one of the two most elite violin studios in the world, I know exactly what fundamentals are necessary for you to enjoy playing the violin every time you pick it up; and in order to make this happen I preview for and review each session.
I am very good with children and understand that it is particularly important to win their trust quickly so they can begin to soak in all the material in a fun environment.
For older students, I am quick to understand the personal goals of the individual and figure out the most efficient method to achieve their dreams.
Marina received her training in Russia in 1979, where she received a master degree in piano. As an expert in her field, Marina looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals.

Beyond just teaching me music history, theory, and performance etiquette, she has taught me how to appreciate and love music for what it is. I've had numerous music teachers and none of them have shown the same energy, vigor, and passion for music as Mrs. Marina has. Anybody can teach music, but Mrs. Marina teaches you how to love music.
Her many years of experience has given her fantastic insight on how to approach every issue you may have. She has solutions for every technical problem I have, knows which pieces to assign to each individual student, and properly prepares her students for any piano exams and competitions. I have completed the ABRSM Grade 8 Practical Exam and competed in the Golden Key Music Festival competition!
Last year, I attended Carnegie Mellon University's Pre-College Program for music, and it was only with Mrs. Marina's help and guidance that I had such a wonderful opportunity.
If you're thinking about starting piano lessons for yourself or for your kids, I say absolutely go for it. Mrs. Marina is so warm-hearted and caring, and is truly a one-in-a-million piano teacher. It would be a shame to miss such an amazing opportunity.
