View Full Profile

A healthy physical approach to the piano, a keen appreciation for sound, and a curious mind - these are qualities which I've been able to help cultivate in my students. You will learn how to play without tension, utilizing the body to the upmost capacity. You will learn how to create the sound you want with an instrument that can do almost anything you want it to. And all of this will be done with a constant mindset of discovery. I want to help you not only play the music you want to play but to appreciate more deeply music you already know and love. I accomplish this through a flexible method which fits the unique needs and desires of each individual student.

About John
Greetings! I am a teacher who believes in the importance of understanding you and your needs so that we can accomplish, as a team, your specific goals for learning to play the piano - whether that means playing a Beethoven sonata, playing by ear, or creating your own music! I am a classically trained pianist with a Master's degree from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. I have studied with some of the most famous pianists in the world today including Menahem Pressler, Gabriel Chodos and Livia Rev. I also have a lot of experience in the world outside of classical piano, which informs my teaching and enables me to offer your a much more well-rounded approach to not only the piano, but to understanding and enjoying music itself!

John is the best piano teacher I've ever had. I studied with him for about a year and a half, and my musicality and ability to play the piano improved so much. He taught me techniques with logical explanations, and musical expressions with history behind the music. His lessons made me happy to see a whole new world behind the music we'd been learning. He is a very experienced and wonderful musician and teacher. I highly recommend him!

After taking piano lessons from a family friend for several years growing up, I decided to pick piano back up in college. Thanks to John, I was able to do much more than that. We worked together for about a year and a half, and in this time John not only helped me become a better pianist than I had ever hoped, but he opened my eyes to expressive possibilities in music that I had never been exposed to. I used to think of a piece of music as nothing more than a series of notes to be played in order, at the right tempo, the right volume, etc. John helped me see that even the most simple melody contains an infinite number of possibilities. He taught me skills that allowed me to begin to harness these possibilities and to find my own sound and style. After working with John, I feel like I hear all music in a new way, and my love for music has never been greater. To sum up, John is an expert pianist and an even better teacher. I cannot recommend him highly enough to anybody, at any level, who has a desire to learn more about music and about the piano.

I studied music and piano at the University of Central Florida. My main focus there was classical and jazz guitar, but I also had to demonstrate my proficiency in piano. I've been playing and teaching piano for six years since then. I've worked with young children, teenagers, and even adults, so I'm happy to work with new students, novice to intermediate, of any age.

Lessons are built on a foundation of reading music notation and basic harmonic theory. We learn everything from from Bach to Beethoven and beyond! I'm happy to recommend books for beginners, depending on the age and skill level of the student.

About Gio
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studi
o Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

Amazing instructor! I have taken Korean classes before but it was a struggle. The first day of my tutoring, he explained the basics in such an easy and uncomplicated way. I learned more from that first lesson than I ever had before! Arron also does an excellent job of tailoring the lessons for me. He reviews what I do know quickly and spends more time on the things I don't understand or am struggling to understand. Again he explains what I don't understand is such a simple way and even more comforting he doesn't get frustrated or make me feel dumb when I do struggle. Highly recommended!

Classes with Arron have been really helpful. I think if you have classes with him, you're getting a great value. It seems very important to him that I understand what he's been teaching and that we complete the planned amount of work for each lesson.
Not only that, but he has even been kind enough to extend his teaching beyond the virtual classroom by answering questions that I've had between classes through messages. It is so helpful to have someone who knows what he's talking about to answer the tough questions that are too hard to find the answers to with Google.

I really appreciate your teaching. Thank you, teacher Arron.

I've played piano since I was four years old. You'll learn not just how to become technically proficient, but how to find the emotional nuances in every piece. You'll learn how to interpret every piece you play to make it your own, while still expressing the wishes of the composer. And you'll gain all the technical and theoretical tools you need along the way, all in service of making expressive music.

About Jonathan
I am a classically trained composer working with today's leading performers, and a lifelong guitarist and pianist in rock and indie bands. My teaching/consulting studio will help you develop your full potential as a musical artist, whether you're a songwriter, composer or performer.

Jon is fabulous! He is able to provide a mix of classical, contemporary music styles to build on and develop a broad base of musical interest my son has. He is able to tailor his teaching tools to fit in with my son's interests. This is no mean feat, especially when my son is only 8 years of age.

Thanks so much Jon!

I encourage and foster the love of music in young children. With over 20 years of experience as a concert pianist I am here to share all my experiences with the younger generation. I am a pianist with a passion for singing. Also, I am a lyric player :) I received my Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Piano Performance and I have had over 5 years of teaching experience. I cannot wait to work with young kids in a stress-free, motivating and fun environment.

About Mintra
Let's have some fun at the piano and make your experience with music the one that would leave a handprint on your heart. I am a pianist and I perform every year throughout my whole life. I have given solo piano concerts and piano + singing concerts. Venues I have performed include Carnegie Hall, Merkin Concert Hall, Bohemian National Hall, Stifle C. Ernst Hall in NYC and much more out of New York. I am classically trained but I also have a passion for musical theatre and pop music. I believe that classical music provides the best foundation for everyone who wishes to learn piano. Every music college provides a group piano class and that's how essential it is for you to branch out in the future whether or not you would end up being a professional pianist or found yourself interested in other instruments. Music heals and it lights up every
house with it's magic.

Whether you want to learn today's popular music, go back to classic songs of the past, or want to write your own music, I have the tools for you! I have many years of experience teaching both kids and adults, and my versatile professional experience means I can offer instruction in a wide range of musical styles. For traditional method book learning, I'm well-versed in both the Alfred piano method, as well as Faber & Faber, while drawing from my own upbringing as a Suzuki student. I also make sure each student learns music theory and ear training techniques in order to internalize the music on a deeper level.

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.

I started playing the piano when I was 7 years old, and kept on performing piano until my career as a composer became very demanding. But I still teach piano because I love the instrument and I enjoy practicing!

When teaching piano, I tap into my knowledge and techniques I've developed as a professional, working musician over more than a decade not just as a pianist but also as a composer.

Learning piano can bring a variety of benefits into your life. For some, it is a way to relax after a stressful workday.

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. I am flexible with methodology and can adapt to your needs and desires.
