Fun, engaging, personalized, and productive lessons with me are enjoyable and highly effective. I'll help you reach your goals!
I've been teaching professionally since 2/1999.
Every June, I hold an annual Piano Recital so parents, family, friends can see the students’ great work.
For young beginners, I use the Music for Little Mozart's books or Alfred Premier. For ages 6-7 through & early teens, I typically use the Faber Piano Adventures lesson book, For adults, the Alfred Basic Adult Piano Course, or any lesson book of their choice.
Each student is given a Music Journal in which I document homework; what and how to practice. I have an extensive library. Students / parents are welcome to request a tutorial video.
After learning the fundamentals, my students are free to choose which songs they want to learn; multiple genres of music.
Teaching piano is my passion. I want the love of music, the feeling of accomplishment and the ineffable joy of learning to play piano to be the

About Trina

I'm a patient, friendly, enthusiastic, highly experienced teacher. A classically-trained pianist, I started playing keyboard "by ear" from around age 2, and started piano lessons at age 6. In college, I studied piano, music theory/history, and psychology in addition to fieldwork in music therapy (which prepared me to teach students with special needs). In grad school, I specialized in classical piano and theory/ composition.
Lessons with me are personalized. However. proper technique is taught to all students. Overall, I want the love of music to be the reason my students want to practice and attend lessons. I believe the rapport between student and teacher is tantamount. I strive for my students to develop a love of music that will last a lifetime.
*I hold annual Student Piano Recitals at the end of the school year.*

Veroslav is beyond amazing. He is knowledgeable, prompt, courteous, and very professional. I will gladly recommend his services to everyone I know. My daughter has learned so much from him. My family and I call him our trophy piano instructor!

Veroslav is a tremendously patient expert piano instrument for my two children, ages 6 and 12. He has a gentle way of guiding kids who may feel shy. I’m just blown away by my children’s progress in piano skills in just a couple of months, but also see how much their self-confidence has grown through doing well at something completely new! Absolutely recommend Veroslav, and we feel so lucky to have been connected to with him!

Dr. Desmond was a really great instructor! He was very kind and patient with me, he was able to teach me at ability level. He encouraged me to believe in myself and to practice in order to become a better player. He made me feel comfortable and and gave be positive reinforcements when I was doing well as well as positive constructive criticism when I was slacking. I look forward to continuing my courses with Dr. Desmond, I would recommend him to any one interested in learning how to play any instrument.

Had a really good lesson. Dr. Desmond helped me with my technique (which definitely needs work). Had instant impact on the quality of sound I was producing. I would call it an eye-opening experience

Learn to sight read, play the blues, sing a show tune! I have been working professionally in the performing arts and have 20 years of experience working with all ages, from children to adults, and all levels, from beginners to professionals.

Private Piano Teacher

Piano lesson for all levels but especially focusing on giving you a good foundation.

About Chialing

I offer piano and cello lessons for all levels and ages in both English or Chinese. My teaching philosophy is to help students set up a good foundation and practice routine. My lessons are engaging and tailored to individual's needs.
I am also an experienced online teacher. Online music lessons offer the opportunity for students who do not live around a suitable teacher to take lessons and improve their musical skills. It also gives students convenience and it saves time commuting to teachers. It works the same way as an in person lesson except the teacher is on the screen. It is a good option if you do not have a suitable teacher nearby.
My method is a mix of suzuki books along with right hand and left hand exercise that I have accumulated over the years of teaching. I will give you a consultation on your first lesson to se

e what kind of material you need-that includes music theory and ear training if necessary. (you need someone to teach you how to read music right?) I will also make recommendation on your instrument and where to rent or buy them.

I hope this is helpful. Shoot me a message if you have any questions!

My son had his first lesson with Chialing today, and he learned a lot from her. She was very detailed in teaching and was very precise when correcting mistakes. She went through what my son needed to work on quickly yet completely. He looks forward to his next lesson with her.

Luther stays where I’m at and then helps me go the next step. That is useful for consistent gradual progress without the frustrations of moving either too slow or too fast (I am a beginning tenor saxophone player). Nice interpersonal style, patient and easy going, while methodical.

Geoff K.
I think Luther is great. He works with my 10-year old son on piano, singing and even trumpet and violin as needed. My son has to work hard to progress, and Luther customizes the lesson plan for him and seems to understand him well. I'm really excited about them working together.

Private Piano Teacher

A practical fun approach to learning how to learn, play and practice. I teach students the fundamentals of music while learning how to play the piano and learn the music they love. I'm also willing to travel further than the 25 mile radius in Connecticut and New York.

About Brian

I'm an experienced teacher with a background as a full time performing musician. Music was a big part of my life from an early age and I've stuck with it pursuing it as a career path. I graduated from the University of Miami with a degree in Studio Music and Jazz Performance and since have been teaching and performing. The focus of my music career has always been playing original music with bands but teaching has always been something I've loved too.

I've formally studied both classical and jazz while playing in rock bands and learned to see the similarities in all forms of music. My favorite thing to teach people is songs they love and how to use the fundamentals of music to make playing their songs fun. Writing practical simple charts that show how songs work opens music up for people in ways they didn't think possible. Playing an

d singing together for the first time or finally having the light bulb moment when reading music makes sense is something magical. It's an amazing feeling and helping people learn how to makes me happy.

I've been teaching music for over twenty years and look forward to sharing my experience and knowledge with new students.

I've been working with Brian for four months now and have made excellent progress on guitar. Brian quickly adjusted to my experience level and has done an outstanding job of removing long-standing bad habits and reinforcing the good ones. He has a fresh approach which ensures students don't get bored and, best of all, instills confidence and a good stage presence. I'm on my way to being a better guitar player but more importantly, a better musician. I recommend Brian without reservation.

Brian has been great , he patiently provides simple tangible explanations for both guitar play and music theory. He is building a solid foundation for my musical growth and more importantly supporting and enhancing my love of music. I give Brian my highest recommendation, he's a natural teacher

This teacher has a great time with her students as they learn keyboards, piano, theory, singing and basic skills on percussion and woodwind
instruments. She can show beginning guitarists the chords and strums, too. We perform with the teacher at different places for youth group events, recitals, even musical theater shows. I hope I keep learning music the rest of my life."
