This is a piano class designed for a small group of students, (two to four). I use the group setting to enhance the learning experience as students can learn from watching what are students are experiencing as well as from their own experience. The group setting is also great for skills learning, rhythm, reading, knowledge and more

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.

Kathryn comes with two important strengths. First, she is a working professional, with excellent technique and musicality from real world experience. Secondly, she is patient with students like me who are still figuring it out. Those two things make for a great teacher.
Amanda Testa-Oerth
Kathryn has helped me in my musical journey for a very long time! Over the 15 years I have worked with Kathryn she has been a teacher, life coach, and now musical colleague. Kathryn's teaching style is always warm and very informative. She builds confidence on something I did well, then gives me recommendations on how to improve either a technical skill or with musicality of the piece we are working on. After every lesson, I come out feeling improved and more confident than when I went in. Kathryn has guided me in both classical and musical theater pieces as well as introduced me some very interesting contemporary songs that I have greatly enjoyed. With her guidance and instruction, I have grown into a musician that is confident in my own abilities for preforming and a caring instructor to my own students. I highly recommend studying with Kathryn if you have the chance. It is a fantastic learning experience every class!

Kathryn is brilliant and exceptional. If I could give her more stars I would. She is an amazing teacher no matter what age or evel you are from beginner to pro.

Classical music is the foundation for everything else!

I have been teaching piano for over 40 years, full-time for the past 15. Besides the actual repertoire, technique and theory are always included in my lessons because they are essential. Sight reading and ear training are also included in some lessons.

I stress accuracy in playing and attention to details! I also teach my students HOW to practice. Slow, accurate practice is the answer. Practicing takes patience!

Please note: Home lessons must be at a location that I can get to easily with public transportation. I do not have a car.

About Emil

I started to study the piano at the age of seven with Hrant Minassian in my hometown of Island Park, New York. During high school I continued my studies with Jack Chaikin , a graduate of the Juilliard School. I attended Hofstra University where I received a B.A. in Music in 1979. At Hofstra, my pian

I started taking piano lessons with Emil a few weeks ago, and I am really enjoying my lessons. Emil is an excellent instructor, and I have learned a lot from him already. Emil is also very kind and interesting and enjoyable to work with - I highly recommend Emil to anyone who is looking to take piano lessons (he is a talented musician who is capable of teaching all levels)!
Zahra
Emil is a great teacher! He has a great sense of humor and makes sure you play with accuracy and musicality! I love my lessons with him!!!
Chuck
I took up the piano as an adult, without having had any experience in it as a child (though I played guitar through college). I tried a few instructors prior to discovering Emil, with whom I have been studying now for over 2 years.

Emil is a wonderful teacher. He is far and away the most accomplished piano player I have studied with, and his knowledge of, and facility for, playing really comes through in his instruction. He is always bringing formal instruction back to the act of performance, and how to make whatever piece you are working on, even the simplest, sound the best that it can be.

Emil isn't afraid to share his own struggles with whatever piece he is currently working on, and pointing out that he faces the same challenges that every practicing player faces.

Emil is personable, knowledgeable, and kind. I can't recommend him highly enough as an instructor.

Great teacher, really pushed me too my limits and help tighten my technique. Would recommend!
Niala
Adam has taken me to new heights on my journey to becoming a musician. As someone who first approached music with much hesitation and a lack of confidence, Adam reminded me that I can achieve any of my musical goals at any age. He provides you with all the technique, theory training, and support you need to really internalize what you’re learning. He was also excellent with reminding of me of the spark that first drew me to music, when judgment and self-doubt seemed to get in the way. I can now approach something that once felt so intimidating with confidence and a sense of ease. I’ve learned that it’s all about falling in love with the process. Forever grateful for the way Adam has believed in me and the trust he has instilled in me as an artist. I highly recommend taking that leap of faith and stepping into the light of your dreams. It’s one of the most rewarding feelings to look back and see how far you’ve come.

"Tamari Witkin is not only an incredible musician, but is one of only a few teachers who is deeply committed to making sure that any student she takes under her wing will fledge comfortably and competently. Tamari has a keen sense of exactly what is needed to help a particular student overcome a particular pianistic impediment to learning to play the piano. Moreover, she brims with such enthusiasm that it all becomes so much fun studying with her that one cannot help but feel like and sound like they are becoming a pianist.
I highly recommend anyone at any level of piano playing to study with Tamari,

"For 2020, I focused a lot on left-hand ostinatos for improvising, and practicing scales & chords. I also worked on composition, recording, and in general improved the timing of both hands.

For classical piano, I worked a bit on the Adagio from the Moonlight Sonata, the Eb Major Nocturne and the Adagio from the C major Mozart Concerto, and also the first Invention.

I dedicated more time to the improvising and ostinato practice. While my pedaling improved, it still has a ways to go before I can play some of the classical piano repertoire.

In any case, it was a lot of fun and I learned a lot!

Thanks very much!"
