Private Music Performance Teacher

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!

Pamela is great, very professional and welcoming. This was my daughter's first voice lesson ever and she was super excited when it was over. Looking forward to the next lesson. Highly recommended.
Kristian
I have had a vocal coach before meeting Pam, but she absolutely took it to another level. Pamela does a good job with teaching the mechanics of singing, as she pin points which muscles the body is using and how to use them properly when singing. She has a variety of warm ups and stretches to get your voice and body prepared to perform and is very good and pushing you to become your best. If you are a serious singer and would like to take the knowledge of your craft a step further, I would definitely recommend.

We are so happy with Pamela, she has helped my daughter maximize her talents. Alayna finally was accepted into the singing group at her high school which is very competitive. We are thrilled!! Thanks Pamela :)

Jim
Wow! Shaun has far exceeded my expectations. He is an amazing teacher. He is prepared every week with lesson plans, he is a walking Encyclopedia for all things music and he is an extremely nice guy. Shaun is the real deal. He has the skills to teach everyone form the beginning guitar player to a seasoned professional looking to advance their skills. He is a patient person that takes the time to make sure you understand what he is teaching and more importantly he can explain why something has to be done a certain way. Shaun takes some the most complicated aspects of the guitar from rhythm to scales and makes it easy to understand and apply in the real world.
Ashley
I have been working with Shaun for about a year, and have truly enjoyed my experience with him. He is an excellent instructor, very focused on technique and learning to play guitar the RIGHT way. I have learned to read music, improv, and am now learning performance pieces. I would definitely recommend him as an instructor.

This was my first lesson with Zeynep. I have had several Tutors over the past 4 years. Zeynep was ready for my arrival. She was friendly, yet very professional. She watched me play a short piece and was able to discern from that where I needed help. Zeynep was able to give me new tips on bowing and finger placement. I am certainly looking forward to my next a Lesson with Zeynep.
Addison/Lauren
My daughter had the pleasure of taking lessons with Zeynep this past summer in the PALS program in Aspen. She loved each week when it was lesson time. This is what Addison had to say, "She always would say the area I needed to work on nicely. I loved that she gave me knew things to learn at each lesson. If I didn't understand, she would keep encouraging me until I did." This was an excellent experience!
Bethany
A unique and special experience! My daughter always looked forward to her sessions with Zeynep. She has been her mentor for the past two summers at the PALS program. Once after a lesson my daughter told me that she was surprised how much better she played the song after her session with Zeynep. I love the way Zeynep engages with my daughter and brings out the best in her.

Ask any musician, and they will tell you that making the choice to invest in a private music instructor is a critical step in growth and development--no matter the individual's age or experience level. When you're devoting time and energy into bettering yourself, you want to know that you're learning from a friendly, accessible, and most of all qualified, teacher. Dr. Tammy Y. is all of these things and much more.

So whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced, young or old, Dr. Tammy Y. provides the very best resources and sets the highest expectations for her students.

"I've rehearsed and performed with Vandi Enzor in a chamber setting per the requirements of her graduate voice degree. I accompanied her on guitar as she sang; the specific piece was the Seven Popular Spanish songs by the great Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. Vandi is professional, patient, hard working, receptive, and musical. Her great command of her instrument is evident, and more than that she has genuine joy in what she does. Collaborating with her was a pleasure, and I can't recommend her enough for musical instruction. A true professional."

"This teacher works to bring out the possible best in a person. She provides constructive criticism when needed but also makes you feel you are learning and progressing under her instructions. She took a shy, quiet person and turned him into someone who is learning that it can be fun to perform for live audiences and how good it feels to express a talent you always wanted to share with others but were not sure you had it in you to do so. I greatly love and respect this teacher."

"I am a math/science nerd and do not have much experience in proper singing, less in stage performance. After reading Benjamin's profile, I was very positive that he had the right personality and teaching style suited for me. My guess was correct! I have enjoyed every single of the 10-15 lessons with him and look forward to many more.
Teaching how to sing is much more than just giving instructions and demonstrating correct techniques. Even a YouTube video can do that. You hire a mentor so that he/she can criticize what you are doing wrong and create exercises customized to fix such malpractices. Benjamin has been doing exactly that. Additionally, he has been helping me improve on my stage etiquette, as well as performance skills. His sessions are also thoroughly entertaining, and he puts you under right amount of pressure, allowing you to be motivated without feeling embarrassed.
I started as an amateur singer and planned to pursue singing as a hobby at best, but now I hope to turn singing into an avocation. I am happy to recommend Benjamin to anyone looking for singing and stage performance lessons!"

"I hired Danny early this year 2016 at my home studio in Austin,TX. I have been working on a recording studio project. With 6 songs I needed to record. I did three songs on my own. That took a week and a half and at least 5 to 6 hrs each. I looked around and hired a local coach who was very classical and just didn't get it. 3 hrs I will never get back. I found Danny online, hired him, and it was perfect...We warmed up with scales and light cardio. Very different I will say but effective. Anyways, we finished the 3 songs in just under 2 hrs. Wow! Straight to the point. So I sing Gospel music and had so many techniques wrong. A little bit of good habits goes a long way."
