Private Piano Teacher

I bring to teaching piano an unrivalled Juilliard education, international performing and recording career, and 18 years of experience teaching students of various levels. In teaching, I see myself as my students' partner dedicated to helping them realize their full potential as budding musicians and performers. I am encouraging, enthusiastic, patient, and flexible in teaching adults and children of intermediate and advanced levels. I love finding the right individual approach with each of my students, so that they stay motivated and inspired while growing in their musical understanding and mastery.

I strongly believe that a chief tool enabling progress in all aspects of musicianship is focused listening, and see my role as a teacher to guide students in developing power and sensitivity of aural perception through concrete steps and activities. I'm deliberate in selecting and assigning a repertoire that challenges students with appropriate techniques and allows them to ...

About Gabrielius

I am currently accepting new students ages 7 and up. Why settle for piano lessons with a guitarist who also teaches drums and viola? This being NYC, start or continue your piano lessons with an actively performing and recording classical pianist with Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degrees fr

Gabrielius is infinitely patient, highly skilled as a teacher and pianist, and has the rare ability to correct while encouraging improvement. I have had 4 lessons with him so far, and already am playing far better than I could have imagined.
I recommend Gabrielius highly to anyone interested in learning to play the piano either for personal pleasure or even performance.
Sarah
Gabrielius is a wonderful piano teacher to our daughter. He is professional, reliable, an amazing musician. We are very happy to have found him on TakeLessons.
Cristian S.
Gabrielius teaches calmly with lots of patience, and the results are fantastic. I've seen tremendous improvement just after a few weeks, and I find his way of teaching focuses on the things that will have the most impact on your playing. He's not a teacher that will drill you endlessly, but will find easier and more organic ways to learn and love the pieces you play. I'm excited to continue my lessons, and I'm falling more and more in love with playing, practicing, learning and listening to piano.

Joanne
Bridget is an ideal instructor for adult students. Despite her many years of experience, she is able to see through beginners' eyes, enabling her to anticipate and remedy challenges the adult beginner faces when learning new material. Lessons consist of a perfect blend of building solid technique, learning relevant theory, and creating a repertoire of level-appropriate songs. She is super positive, motivating, and funny, which makes lessons a delightful experience. I only wish I had started lessons with her 10 years ago. :-)
Amy
Bridget is a very sincere and encouraging teacher with a lot to offer her students. She tries to help each student learn, even within a group setting. She always stops before going on to the next exercise by asking if there are any questions on anything.
Amy
Bridget is a very enthusiastic teacher with lots of good ideas and tips to share. I'd highly recommend her for lessons.

Carolyn has and is exactly what I was looking for in a voice coach. Like me, her interests in the performing arts are broad. I felt both excited and comfortable with her. She is professional and easy to talk to. I can sense strongly that Carolyn is full of love and compassion. I am so excited for the next lesson! Here's to the new horizon and everything in between! :) Thank you Carolyn for reassuring me that my decision to switch careers was a wise decision indeed. Dance forward.

"Excellent Experience

Plannig to learn to play the piano was an intimidating feeling. From the begining Javier eased my anxiety. He is very flexible and adjust the lessons to my perofrmance. When I do well we speed on. If I struggle he slows down.

I am so glad I started and that he is my instructor. the experience is encouraging and will probably be the cause for me to continue on for awhile."
