I majored in Mandarin Chinese back in college (many years ago...) and also studied Chinese at Tunghai University in Taiwan. I have excellent pronunciation, and can help you also master Mandarin pronunciation, as well as grammar, sentence structure, reading and writing, etc.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very laid back and friendly, and I want you or your child to be as comfortable as possible during our lessons. You or your child will develop confidence and musical intelligence. I will make your lessons fun, enjoyable, and effective. Boredom is not an option! Music is fun... let's keep it that way.

The teaching methods I use will be custom-tailored to your individual needs, personality and specific musical goals. If it's guitar or piano you want to learn, I want to get you playing exactly what you want to be playing as soon as possible. That's what you're here for, and that's what I'm here for. I will make it happen. If it's songwriting that you want to learn, I will help you access that place inside of you that is dying to express itself creatively, and will teach you techniques to harness that energy and translate it successfully into musical expression.

You can expect to learn all the basics of music theory, proper playing techniques, improvisation and spontaneous musical expression, and I will help you develop your "ear" so you can figure out songs you like just by listening to them. This is all about you and your goals, and I want you to achieve them in a fun and engaging way.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room: Upright piano, guitars, amps, keyboard, percussion

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in pop, rock, classical, jazz, blues, folk, fingerstyle (guitar), etc. I also teach improvisation and songwriting, and try to develop the student's ear for figuring out songs they like on their own.

I've been taking lessons for about a month now and I think Lin Is a great teacher. she gives constructive feedback and tells me exactly what I need to work on, why its important to know, how to improve that technique, and then she shows me herself how to do it. she also tells me what I am doing well. I'm enjoying learning from Lin, she is a really nice person to talk to, she is very friendly but firm also expects you to meet her expectations.

Being from Singapore, I am fluent in both English and Mandarin. I can read, write and speak at a bilingual, native proficiency in both languages. I primary speak English at home, but studied mandarin for over 10 years in school. I'll start by teaching your basic intonations, sentences, and even some idioms to spice things up! Mandarin is a musical language that's quickly taking over the world, you'll have lots of fun learning this language.

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!

We are absolutely thrilled with our experience with Tammy. My two sons meet with her online to review the Mandarin language they take at school. The extra 30 min. a week of conversation and tone work is invaluable. I would rate Tammy a 10/10 as she sends highlights, a review and suggestions of study for the week after each lesson. If a person can have teenage boys look forward to "extra" Chinese weekly, they deserve a medal!

Hi. I'm Chinese and I moved to the US when I was in six grade. Even through I stayed here for a long time I still use Chinese in day to day basis and I'm still completely fluent. In my lessons you will expect to learn how to speak mandarin by learning the pinyin (拼音) system and how to write chinese.

About Wankun
Hi, I'm Wankun, a college student at CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Although I'm not totally experienced in teaching (one year), my passion with music is strong; I believe I can be a great teacher.

My whole life is filled with music. I started piano lessons since I was 5. After I moved to America (I was born in China) I had some violin lessons. In freshman year I joined school band. I'm still in band, playing flute in marching band and oboe in wind ensemble.

Music is an expression. It can be happy and light, or dramatical and full of sorrow. We need basic skills to approach a sound, but music is more than that. Music is when you give a sound a meaning, a feeling, and a heartbeat that makes it alive.

Different genre speaks and expresses differently. Personally I really enjoy indie (TØP!) and musicals. But no matter wha
t, all kinds of music are beautiful and it's the meaning that matters the most.

I look forward to teach you the basic skills and share my journey of exploring music with you!

Please understand that I'll only travel within NYC. I will not travel to New Jersey.

When I first knew Wankun, I was amazed by her passion and talent in music. I know for sure that she is a great pianolist, violinist and a lot others. It is enjoyable and pleasing to hear beautiful rhythm coming out from her fingers. If you have the same passion and want to explore the splendid world of music, you should definitely take her classes!

I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese. Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences/ phrases and as time goes on, you'll be able to perfect your tones! I typically use practice books and have worksheets. I love working with students of all experience levels. Speaking is very important as much as reading/ recognizing characters. You'll be able to practice writing the characters the right way.

About Kevin
I studied classical piano for 19 years from a piano teacher who was from Julliard. I passed A.B.R.S.M. grade 8 piano test as well as the NYSSMA Grade 6 test. I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach students to read music, learn music theory, prepare for music exams and learn how to play using sheet music depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a pianist, I like to play classical, covers from movies, video games, and pop. I love to mentor students who want to become proficient in picking up any sheet music and start playing it.

My personal passion is music from movies and shows but I firmly believe that having great technique is essential to any kind of style of music. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
