Staten Island, NY

View Full Profile

I am an experienced piano teacher with over 20 years experience who teaches students of all levels and ages. I structure your lesson around what the student wants to learn while also building a solid foundation in music theory. I find one really does help the other in the students growth and development.

About Paul
I have been teaching music for about 25 years mostly on the guitar but I also give lessons on the bass, piano, and ukelele. I give lessons to beginner and intermediate students of all ages. If you want to learn and have fun I am ready for your lesson. In addition to teaching I have played in various local original and cover bands as well as musical productions. I enjoy the challenge every student brings.
I teach on the entire Island so if your address comes up as to far away call TL to get set up.
*** Lesson Details ***
I structure my lessons with a focus on learning to read and play music but I also like to teach a student what interests them as well. I think learning to read music is very important and it aides in the students development of their own musical personality. Early on the student will also learn songs or stlyes tha
t interest them so its not just work but also play.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide books and various other things (e.g. picks, music stands, metronomes, etc... at students expense) if asked. Student should provide instrument

*** Specialties ***
beginner on all instruments and rock guitar.
Intermediate students also welcome.

Paul has been giving me bass guitar lessons for a while now and I truly enjoy our time together and the approach he is taking with me. As an adult trying to get back into music, he is making the process interedting ang challenging without being overbearing. I highly recommend Paul for music lessons and I look forward to each of our sessions.

About Nino
I began studying piano and music theory when I was 5. My father was an accomplished musician (classical and folklore) who played great role in my accomplishment as a pianist and teacher

While studying in Music College, I took part in various festivals and competitions. I performed several piano concertos with symphonic orchestra. Some of them are: Mozart Piano Concerto No 20 in D minor, Saint-Saens Piano Concerto No 2 in G minor, Schumann Piano Concerto in A minor Op 54 pt. Parallel with my studies in College I gave piano lessons in classical music. I accomplished my studies with honors.
I traveled and taught music in different countries: United Kingdom, Central and Eastern Europe which helped me gain great experience how to teach students with different background

I got my MA from the Institute of Public Affairs (GIPA). My studie
s were focused on education administration and management. This helped me manage class in most efficient and effective way , plan lessons and develop curricula.

I would eagerly take students from all age groups and backgrounds and involve them in the most exciting process of self accomplishment.

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy teaching all ages 5 and up with different abilities, needs and requirements and develop plans to fit each individual. I have very friendly atmosphere in the class. I design certain games for children to enable them to better understand music language, theory and develop practical skills. I spend much time on ear training, rhythm development, music structure, music theory and performance.

In a 3 month period students will be able to understand different scales, basics of music theory and performance and will be able to perform classical pieces e.g. Bach’s inventions, Mozart’s and Beethoven’s little sonatas for piano etc

*** Studio Equipment ***
piano is a digital yamaha...88 keys, weighted

Welcome!

Since 1999, I have enjoyed teaching Classical piano, chamber music, keyboard skills, ear-training, music theory, music history, and writing on music. I offer lessons in English and in Russian, and welcome students of all ages and levels. I integrate the discussion of pianistic issues, such as cultivation of beautiful tone and phrasing with other disciplines, including history, theory, psychology. I seek to inspire my students to cherish Music as a vital part of their lives, which our increasingly robotized world needs more than ever!!!

I look forward to teaching you!

I integrate the discussion of pianistic issues, such as cultivation of beautiful tone and phrasing with other disciplines, including history, theory, psychology. I seek to inspire my students to cherish Music as a vital part of their lives, which our increasingly robotized world needs more than ever!

OFFICIAL BIOGRAPHY:

Hailed for having “established herself as a very fine interpreter…” (NYCR), Yelena is highly regarded for her intellectual depth, keen musical insight, and passionate performances as both a solo lecture-performer and a chamber musician with a strong preference for unusual and innovative thematic p
rogramming.

As a winner of the Artists International Competition (2005), she performed her sold-out New York Debut recital of the Baroque Reflections program at Carnegie’s Weill Hall and was highly acclaimed for her “grand performance in a grand tradition” (NYCR).
She has been a regular guest lecture-recitalist at The Harvard Club, where she has showcased a wide array of thematic programs, such as The Bach Project, The Art of Chaconne, Humor in Music, and Music and Dance. She has given an extensive series of thematic solo and chamber music performances in tribute to birthday anniversaries of Mendelssohn, Schumann, Liszt, Alkan, C.P.E. Bach, Strauss, Tchaikovsky, Busoni, Czerny, and Dvorak with recent guest performances at The Metropolitan Museum’s Balcony Bar with flutist Suzanne Buerkle and New York’s Bohemian National Hall with violinist Emilie-Anne Gendron.

She is an Adjunct Professor at Fordham University, where she instructs music history and piano, and serves as a chamber music coach. She is also on the piano faculty at the Crestwood Music Education Center in Eastchester, New York, and maintains an active private piano studio on the Upper West Side.

She is also a passionate leader and entrepreneur as the founder and the artistic director of a classical salon series – an intimate and enlightening series of Classical home salons on the Upper West Side, having presented renowned pianists such as Jerome Lowenthal, Oxana Yablonskaya, and Madeline Bruser, clarinetist Julian Milkis, Juilliard’s Professor of Music, Michael Musgrave, and NYU’s Professor of Music, Michael Beckerman.
Previously, at Juilliard, she has been a faculty member in the Piano Minor Department and taught the undergraduate course on Piano Topics. She has also coached piano-duo and chamber-music groups in Columbia University’s Music Department and was the organizer of the Barnard-Columbia-Juilliard concert series at Columbia’s Miller Theater.

Born in Moscow, Yelena began her professional piano studies at The Gnessin School of Music for Gifted Children at the age of five. As a student in the joint degree program, she graduated from Barnard College at Columbia University summa cum laude, and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa, with a major in English Literature and a minor in Philosophy. She holds both her M.Mus and DMA degrees in Piano Performance from The Juilliard School, where she studied jointly with Jerome Lowenthal and Oxana Yablonskaya, as well as privately with Richard Goode.

Students will be taught the basics of learning the piano, from their first piece to a level 3 NYSSMA solo. Students will learn how to read music, learn the layout of the keyboard, and spend time developing independence with both hands. Want to learn your favorite pop tune, movie tune, or video game theme? This is the right place to start.

About Jorge
I have over 10 years of experience on the Clarinet and other reed instruments. I am a senior undergraduate BA Music Education major at the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College and have studied classical clarinet as well as saxophone under various professors at the college.

I also have experience in teaching NYSSMA solos, intermediate/advanced techniques on the saxophone and clarinet, and have run and directed my own orchestra and jazz band during my time in college.

I have a reputation for achieving whatever goals I set my sights on musically, from performing to composing and conducting.

I am also in touch with the current music education situation in New York City, spending many hours every semester doing fieldwork observations in various music programs across the city as well as being an assistant to various honors
festivals for middle school and high school students, as well as performing in them while still in the public school system.

I personally believe practicing should be fun, and have devised multiple strategies for success to kick-start one's drive for peak performance in music!

Jorge tutored me for a few weeks in music theory and it greatly benefited me. He shows through his examples and explanations that he really understands concepts of music theory and keyboard, as well on his clarinet too. I highly recommend hiring Jorge since he goes over the information at a good pace and nice manor. He will go over whatever you need help on.

I have twenty years experience teaching students of all ages, who want to study music for a wide spectrum of reasons. I am committed to helping you develop your best relationship to the piano possible, whatever your goals, and no matter how much time you have to devote outside of lessons.
