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!

For beginner students, I like to introduce not only theory, but improvisation, sightreading and composition into each lesson. Weekly assignments are tailored to the student’s interests and ability.

About Benjamin
I have been teaching music since 2000 when I had my first piano student. I taught music in the K-12 school system for several years and have been a choir director, pianist and accompanist for many years. Though I come from a classical training background , I love everything from broadway ballads to country crooning! I started voice and piano lessons at age 10 and continued through college earning my degree in music education. Additionally, I have been a licensed special education teacher and have the experience of working with students who have varying mental and physical disabilities.

I am an extremely versatile piano teacher with over 30 years of experience. My Russian-based training in both piano and ballet enables me to understand and teach a relaxed, coordinated approach to the instrument. If you have technical problems or limitations, I'm a great troubleshooter! I emphasize reading, as this is the skill that makes it possible for you to enjoy playing the piano for the rest of your life. I have developed my own curriculum for students as young as four, but I enjoy helping students of all ages conquer their fear of reading. I'm a serious teacher with an irrepressible sense of humor.

Ever wanted to play a song but can't find the sheet music? Ever found sheet music that lacks the sparkle you hear on the record? If you want to have command of the piano beyond just reading what's on the page - I can get you there! My piano teaching is based on strengthening 3 different areas, reading music, ear- training, and chord improvisation. Have your classical technique make your contemporary playing stronger and vice versa! Through these methods, you'll be able to be confident in playing classical, pop, jazz and whatever your ears desire. Take your piano foundation to the next level and also be able to write your own songs,compose your own pieces and record them yourself. I am passionate about enabling my students to learn piano in a cutting edge and relevant way.

About Anh
I've been professional singer, songwriter and producer for the past 5-6 years. I've had musical placements on MTV Europe, BBC Radio1 and Netflix. I graduated from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, majoring in Music Production and Songwriting with an emphasis on Contemporary Keyboard.

I am passionate in giving my students tools beyond the conventional methods of traditional music lessons. Many teachers, overemphasize virtuosity at the expense of versatility. Traditional music lessons often result in memorization, regurgitation and limit musicians to only what's "on the page." I believe in tailoring my teaching methods to fit every student's visual, auditory and kinesthetic styles of learning. I believe in building a strong technical foundation so they can break any "rule" they wish.

In addition to musical skill
s, my lessons will include the basics to learning how to record yourself and your compositions. Learning how to sing, play piano, and write music is a way to understand yourself. It can also be the foundation to a fruitful, creative career. Let me be the guide you to becoming the musician you want to be.

My daughter used to take flute lessons with Galyna. I wish she didn't move from Princeton, so my daughter could continue lessons with her. Galyna's kindness, engaging personality and desire to help a student grow as a musician were important factors which contributed to a positive and nurturing learning atmosphere. Her own performances were always inspirational. She is a great teacher, and I highly recommend her!

My daughter took lessons with Galyna for five years. At the age of seven she was true beginner - no experience with any musical instruments. Sophia really enjoyed her lessons! She ended up playing in a band in middle school and I attribute her success to Galyna's lessons. Galyna is professional, friendly and flexible. I would highly recommend her as a music teacher.

Students utilize their full personal potential only when they are immersed in the present moment. I put this intention - process orientation - at the center of my teaching. I consciously act as a dynamic guide for my students to steer away from the fear-oriented approach, into the intriguing and flexible nature of the 88 keys.

I’m classically and jazz trained and professionally play jazz music for a living. Jazz is known as a music that incorporates deep levels of learning to enable freedom in improvisation. It really is a wonderful way to utilize musical theory in action. I aim to give my students all of the knowledge I’ve accumulated through my time learning the music - without holding back even one bit.

About Nadav
I don’t cut corners, while meeting the student where one is - I can guide a student to a new plane of piano playing.

I cleared Trinity Grade 5 when I was 16. Been playing music at different events and festivals ever since. Now, quit my recent band, United Revos, to enter a more serious phase of life, but would love to spend some time with music while earning a few extra bucks. Money isn't the motive, spreading this art is. I'll give y'all some personal discount, if you do good. With my experience and techniques, I can promise a change withing 3 weeks. Music needs to be appreciated. Exited to meet you folks! Keep Playing.

Hey guys, meet this failed artist trying to make ends meet in this 9-5 job but that's okay, you guys are keeping him alive. He really likes teaching music and hindi you know. And also, he's super cool and will spend a chill time. And efficient teacher too. Shh, don't let him know I changed his bio. - Susan :)
Also, he's a super cool brother!! Lots of love, guys.
