About Elisabetta
Originally from Rome, Italy, Elisabetta immersed herself in musical and classical studies since an early age. Traveling with her family, she had the opportunity to experience the most prestigious music productions in Europe and the United States. The choice to be an active part of the music world as a professional was inevitable and only natural.
She attained a Master’s Degree in Piano Performance and Music Teaching, from the Conservatory of Music Refice, Italy.
She developed a long career teaching music, providing music education instruction, encompassing practice of an instrument, history of music, and music theory. She taught classes with approximately twenty-five students, maintaining a sharp, consistent focus on correlating music to academics.
Through instrument instruction (piano, recorder, and key board) she was successful i
n developing skills in students such as discipline and concentration. The experience of practicing and producing beautiful music enhanced the self esteem of even the most difficult pupils, improving their achievements also in mathematics, science, language arts and other academic subjects.
While teaching, Elisabetta never stopped performing for various Cultural Associations in Solo Concerts and Chamber Music.
In New York for family and business reasons since 1999, Elisabetta continued her successful teaching career throughout these years, giving lessons to children and adults alike. Some of her students came from the Martha Graham School of Modern Dance, The Neighborhood Playhouse and Opera Singers.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are pleasant, interesting and stimulating. I have the gift to make things easier. Step by step you go a long way, and become eager to go further. You will look at challenges as just bigger rewards.
I was taught by very accomplished, intimidating Artists and Maestros… extremely demanding people. If you ever feel discouraged or a little doubtful about your abilities… believe me, I KNOW where you are coming from!
We’ll walk together towards a priceless treasure that will be with you for life. In a few months, hearing something beautiful in the air, you will be able to say “I can play that!”

My daughter adores Elisabetta, and with good reason. Elisabetta is an expert in the fine art of balancing warmth and gentleness with rigorous instruction and an insistence on the importance of technique.

My daughter has been playing piano for several years, and she wants to be treated as a mature tween, not a small child who must be praised for simply getting through a piece. On the other hand, she can also be hypersensitive and react badly to criticism; she will think someone is angry with her on the slightest provocation. In other words, she is a very tough customer! But somehow, miraculously, Elisabetta gets it perfectly right, and my daughter feels respected and encouraged.

I am extremely grateful to have found such a gracious and skilled instructor, and I'm very pleased with the progress my daughter is making.

My son has been practicing piano with Elisabetta for more than a year and the progress he has made during this period really made me happy and proud. My son not only learned the skills of piano but also gained the passion for music from Elisabetta, who demonstrated great professionalism in piano , as well as the zeal for music and the love for kids. She has a very organized approach to get kids interested in music, while not getting bored with basic skills. I start to realize (only after a year of my son's piano practice) how important it is to have a musician specialized in piano as a teacher for my son's continuous development of his piano skills. I am very glad that I have made a wise decision at the early stage. My son always looks towards to the piano lessons at Elisabetta's house and he can get very sad when we have to miss the lessons from time to time. It is still very surreal for me to watch a super active 7 year old boy sitting in front of the piano for hours or listen to the cds quietly for a long time recommended by Elisabetta. Both my son and I are very thankful to the great teacher.

About Anthony Michael
I received an MFA in Acting from the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Academy for Classical Acting at The George Washington University, a BA in Theatre from Florida State University, and have performed Off-Broadway, regionally, and abroad.

As actors, we may find ourselves disenchanted by our competitive and challenging industry. But, when we focus on the craft itself and explore the process, we are back on track with our creative journey toward fulfilling our artistic goals.

We’ll build a solid technique in voice & diction, physicalization & movement, spontaneity & improvisation to help illuminate your natural talents in the audition room, rehearsal, and performance!

We'll confront obstacles and emotional blocks by embracing vulnerability and establishing a skillset on how to handle habits of doubt and fear.

My goal is to ins
pire a feeling of confidence and playfulness in performance, while anchoring in a solid foundation of technique and specificity.

SUBJECTS I teach are:

Acting
Audition Prep
Shakespearean Acting

My experience with Anthony has helped me to push myself to limits that I could have never imagined, He has given me monologues that i would never have had the courage to even attempt. From our first meeting he fully immersed himself into getting to know me as a person finding out my strength and weakness as an artiste.
He has shown me how very important it is to have technical training, that it can only enhance the natural talents that I have. He is caring, stern in the fact that he makes you work the full time you are with him. He is an incredible support system a great encourager, I'm looking forward to what the future holds for my acting career now!!

I have had the unique experience of working with Anthony Michael Martinez as both a teacher/coach and fellow teacher. He has coached me in private sessions on multiple Shakespeare monologues and contemporary pieces. He had an incredible ability to explain various acting adjustments and helps to bring the best out of the performances and performers. I always feel confident after working with Anthony, and he makes each session fun and full of energy. Similarly, as a fellow teacher, Anthony can adapt to any situation, student or class size. He is energetic, articulate, and has an incredible sense of humor with students and teachers. He is an ideal fellow teacher.

About Andrew
I have a Masters of Music Composition and over 30 years experience playing in professional situations. My knowledge of different genres gives me a unique perspective for teaching.
Over the years I've played piano jazz in cocktail lounges, drummed for numerous rock bands, played solo shows singing and accompanying myself on guitar, and I've also performed with orchestras, big bands, and stage shows. I'm classically trained as a percussionist, and I studied jazz piano at the University of Kentucky before finishing my degree at Brooklyn College.

I can make the piano, drumset, or guitar approachable for traditional and non-traditional students alike. I offer a strong foundation in technique, theory, and musicality, and I can teach you popular music styles and improvisation as well. I look forward to working with you!

About Xiao
I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter. I graduated from Manhattan School of Music, specifically voice.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 20 years. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any music and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you t
o become a better musician!

About Tyler
I'm a multi-instrumentalist, teacher, composer, arranger, freshly transplanted to Brooklyn after seven great years in Boston, Massachusetts. My professional experience on saxophone, keyboards, clarinet, flute, and bass in many different musical styles has offered me a wide-ranging palate to teach from. For the past five years, I've worked for multiple organizations and agencies as a private lessons instructor, averaging 15-20 students at any given time and maxing out at over 30! My approach to lessons is laid back, yet goal-oriented. My main goals are to equip my students musical and instrumental fundamentals, help them discover their particular passions within music and work towards related goals, and to foster an environment rooted in fun and mutual respect.

Dan is definitely the best voice instructor I have ever had. Not only is he warm and down to earth, he is incredibly supportive, knowledgeable and makes practice fun. He took a lot of time to get to know my goals and interests when it came to singing; my confidence in my voice has been shaken a lot due to less than encouraging voice instructors and he was very empathetic and genuine in his support. I would highly recommend him as a voice instructor!

My daughter had played violin for a year before coming to Ariel and let me tell you this was the best decision I've made. Living in such a diverse area like nyc, you meet a lot of artists and good players but sometimes you just need someone who's good at teaching. Well Ariel is the perfect combination of both. She demonstrates skills of a very accomplished player while having the expertise and knowledge of a great teacher. My daughter is very stubborn and has a a very difficult time changing bad habits. Within a month, Ariel completely changed her bad posture and hand position! I am very happy with Ariel's teaching style and I am sure that my daughter will continue to grow under her teaching.

I came to Ariel with no previous experience with violin and she has helped me grow so much as a musician. I've always regretted not learning an instrument when I was younger but Ariel has been so helpful in making my dreams come true. She is the most patient and encouraging person I've ever had the opportunity to work with. Those 2 things alone would seal the deal but she also has such an extensive violin career and it is truly a pleasure to study with her.

About Dominic
I am currently a student at the New School of Jazz working towards a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jazz drums.

My lessons are designed for beginners. The main goal of my lessons are to create a solid and well-rounded foundation within the student. As a result, the student will learn various styles, learn how to read and transcribe, learn technique, and, in general, learn the skills needed to play with others, whether that be in a jam session with friends, the jazz band at school, or in your own band.

While there will be a standard curriculum within the lessons, each lesson will be customized to meet the needs and goals of the student.

My personal passion is jazz, however, the fundamentals that you will learn are essential for a drummer in any style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your musical journey!
