About Gregory H.

Astoria, NY

View Full Profile

The ultimate instrument: Learn the notes, how to read, and how to play the songs you want to play. For young students, a strong foundation comes first for unlimited capabilities in the future.

About Gregory
As a younger brother at the age of five, I began studying the piano because my older sister did. After my foundation in music strengthened I fell in love with the trumpet. At first, each note took time to develop and I enjoyed the challenge. The trumpet allowed me to travel all over the Southeast later in life and even to China with a 1940's Radio Show. I enjoyed many top-level bands the kindled my love and passion for good music. I want to share that kindling with my students in a nurturing and guiding situation, just like my teachers gave me.
I used to go to lessons and become so motivated and inspired that I thought I could change the world. I always knew that I would want to give back exactly that. As my performance opportunities grew into venues like Churchill Grounds, The Rialto, and The Variety Playhouse in Atlanta
and Radio City Music Hall, 54 Below, The Jazz Standard, Bowery Ballroom, Shapeshifter and Flushing Town Hall in New York, my fire for wanting to develop my teaching did also. I was always thinking back to what my old teachers gave me, inspiration. I then understood that inspiration is the key to success in life.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will be something the student looks forward to every week. We will work through common method books and learn material that the student has an interest in. For example, some students want to learn to play high notes, a popular song, improvise, or write their own songs. I am a laid back guy, but I do expect effort in the lessons and at home. I believe whatever you put into music is what you get out of it, and I will inspire and motivate the student to get as much out of the lessons as they can. Students will create, with my advisement, and update short term and long term goals every few months.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard or Piano and Music Stand

*** Travel Equipment ***
They should provide their instrument, instrument care products (valve oil), method books and sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz and classical music. I use many common methods depending on how the student tends to learn the best, and will even combine different methods if the student requires it.

I have had several lessons so far with Gregory and as an experienced trumpet player can recommend him extremely highly.
I am getting back into the trumpet following a gap after playing for 10 years when I was at high school. Gregory has really helped getting my technique and sound going again, I have been really pleased with my improvement. He has a great demeanour and has been great fun to work with. He is also an excellent player, and is highly reliable and easy to schedule with.

About Daniel E.

Jersey City, NJ

View Full Profile

I take beginner level students on piano. My 30 years of music studies far surpasses my time on the piano. However, In many of the schools I teach, often beginning piano students will choose me over a more accomplished pianist, simply because of my teaching styles and methods. I will teach proper technique, scales and warm ups, theory, etc. I am also more open to teaching not just from method books, but also teaching Pop, Rock, and Hip Hop songs songs the student is into.

About Daniel
- I have a record of success with students of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, and goals
- I teach using a variety of methods and styles, including my own authored books
- I own a music academy where I train others to be successful instructors
- I have a very high student retention rate
- I've been playing over 25 years
- I have a BA in Music from Florida State University
- I have been teaching for 17 years
- I have personally taught over 15,000 private lessons
- I have played in numerous bands
- I have gigged professionally

*** Lesson Details ***
I customize the lessons to the goals of each student. Whether it's for fun and leisure or a driven passion with serious goals, I can give you the tools to accomplish what you want! I love teaching people through the music that they love. So, whether that's Britney Spears, Metallic
a, or Bach, the concepts underlying music are basically the same. I will make sure you can play the music you love and hopefully help you explore new music as well.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio I have a Guild Classical, Alvarez Acoustic, and Epiphone Electric.

All the accessories needed as well. Music Stands, Foot Stools, Picks, Straps, Slides, Tuners, Books, etc.

I also use an iMac in lessons. I like incorporating technology when appropriate, to look up tunes, or do a recording session, it's a necessary tool to learn nowadays.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring everything we need to conduct a proper lesson remotely. I do recommend you have your own guitar though.

*** Specialties ***
For all the advanced knowledge I have and years of teaching students of all kinds, my favorite is teaching beginners. I love seeing someone come in with no knowledge of music, and taking them from milestone to milestone. I love watching new musicians blossom.

I play, teach, and perform most frequently in classical, rock, blues, and pop genres.

Daniel is a fun and easygoing instructor who tailors to your needs, adapting to your musical interests as well as your preferred lesson style. And it is clear that he has years of teaching experience under his belt. He has also helped me improve my music theory understanding, which has become rusty over the years. I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor.

About Tammy Y.

New York, NY

View Full Profile

My youngest student is 3.5 years old. That said, I also teach adults - sometimes parents take lessons with their kid! Believe me when I say it's very fun and productive when both parent and child knows what needs to be practiced. I usually balance out lessons with not just famous classical pieces, but also with your favorite pop tunes! Every student is different, so I adjust my lessons and provide customized material accordingly.

You will learn technical skills such as scales and arpeggios in fun ways as I incorporate them into songs they want to learn! You will also learn about putting your emotions and interpretation into the music. Music theory is a must for students in order to understand how to read notes. I'll even incorporate some songwriting or composition to develop creativity and originality!

About Tammy
I conduct group lessons for young children, which I am unable to state on my profile/list of services here. You can send me a message if you are interested in them!

I believe EVERYONE should have the opportunity to learn music, especially children, in a fun and enjoyable way! As someone who grew up around music (my mother is a music teacher!) I wish to give that chance to others.

I started playing the piano at around the age of four, and helped out as a substitute teacher at my mother's music school back in Singapore while in High School. I left shortly after to pursue music at Berklee College of Music, where I graduated summa cum laude in August 2013 with a Bachelor's of Music in Piano Performance and Contemporary Writing and Production!

My students range from as 3.5 years old, to the grandmother of a couple of my students. I wo
rk mostly with children, but have a handful of adult beginner students I work with as well.

Everyone is different - and I personally take the time and effort to develop and customize my lessons and materials for each student. I'll push you (a little!), to make you realize just how much you can do!

Music is an all-rounded experience. Not only can I offer you a chance to learn how to play different styles of piano, from jazz to pop to classical, but I can also teach you how to write your own songs, arrange them, and perhaps (if you like) record them!

From first hitting a key to playing entire Beethoven movements, I'll meet you where you are and help you learn and love piano. Whatever your goals are, we will use timeless technique and theory approaches to improve your skills and get your playing to where you want it to be. I use a combination of Piano Adventures books and Real books (I provide lesson materials every lesson). Let's get to tickling those ivories!

About Rachel
Hi there!

I am a 24 year old music teacher available to teach lessons to all ages in voice, guitar, piano, bass, songwriting or music theory.

I've been studying music for over a decade, from Texas to the UK to New York City. I was a top high school vocalist in Texas, winning multiple titles and awards in classical voice and going on to perform in musical theatre productions and popular music groups in Austin and Liverpool, England, where I received my BA Music from the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts under Sir Paul McCartney. After moving to NYC in 2016, I began to focus on teaching private lessons in the above subjects. As of earlier this year, I made the move to teaching music in a private school. My classes range from instrumental performance to advanced music theory to recording arts. I am familiar with and can tutor to
DOE standards.

My background in both teaching, writing and performing gives me a diverse and varied approach to teaching music, with an emphasis on learning technique/theory and its application to "real world" music situations. My students receive a mix of traditional technique and theory, but also get to explore the music they enjoy listening to. I am of the firm belief that music comes easiest when a student loves what they're doing. Blending technique and theory with their genuine music interests has proven to be a successful approach for many of my students. One of my specialties that sets me apart from other teachers is that I mix and match instrumental/voice/theory lessons to YOUR liking. If you want to learn how to play chords on guitar but also want to work on your voice, we can make that happen.

I am proud to say that after teaching for 3 years in the city, I now have students going on to attend performing arts high schools within the city, as well as music programs in colleges nationwide.

Having opportunity to work with Mr. Gryaznov, who is a top class performer, is such a privilege. His tremendous experience, both as concert pianist and pedagogue, makes him quite unique. I believe that every student can benefit working with Mr Gryaznov, as he shares his knowledge, talent and advices in a such sincere way.
Having recording sessions in Gryaznoff studio was for me, equally enjoyable process. Relaxed and warm atmosphere, professional equipment, together with the brilliant Hamburg D Steinway makes this studio one of the best of its kind in the heart of New York.
