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, students are welcome to showcase their talent and hard work for family and friends at my annual Piano Recital.
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 ...

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.*
NYSSMA preparat
ion is offered for all levels (1-6).

About Danielle
I have been taking the world by surprise since the age of 4. I began studying at Queens College at 6 years old and was a recital pianist by the age of 12. I was a consumer of music, from the Music Theory lessons on Saturdays, piano lessons on Thursdays and voice lessons on Saturday afternoons, my life was filled with music.

It is to no one's surprise that I completed my first demo at the age of 13 and was performing for Queens Colleges audiences at 14. I went on the rank high in the NYSSMA series in both piano and voice. I also went on to study music in college and began touring with gospel troupes nationally. Since then I has done many workshops, Master Classes, tour dates, theatre shows etc. Too many to date. I am a sought after teacher for voice, piano and broadway singing. I train public speakers, actors and teachers as well.

I was teaching piano for more than 35 years. I have individual approach to each student, because everybody are so different and also have different goals and like different styles in music. Many of my students take NYSSMA exams and successfully pass them. What is most important, I want my students to love and understand music.

About tamara
I started to play piano when I was 6 years old. After I finished music school, I continued to study music in junior college and finally in Gnesins' Academy of Music. While I was studying, I started to work as a pianist in Drama Theater and as an accompanist for singers, violinist and cellist in different music schools. After i've got my Master degree in Gnesins' Academy of Music, I started to work as a teacher in college. I am teaching in US since 1991. I was working as a piano and music theory teacher in music schools and my private studio. I am using traditional method and, of course, I have individual approach to each student, because everyone is so special and goals are very different. Most of my students take NYSSMA and have the highest scores. What unite all my students - love to music.

My children have been taking piano lessons with Tamara since 2005. Both started when they were 6 years old. She is amazing! Tamara is SO knowledgeable and has a gift for teaching. She is a serious teacher and has pushed my children to reach their fullest potential. She has always done so with understanding and kindness though. They love her. I travel more than 1/2 hour each way for their lessons but it is definitely worth it! My children have progressed much more quickly than their peers studying with other piano teachers. They have been exposed to pieces from various composers and studied music theory as well. Both have taken several NYSSMA exams and they've both scored at the highest level on every one. My daughter has already completed all 6 levels. My son is 13 years old and planning to take level 5 next Spring. I would HIGHLY recommend her for students of all levels and ages. She can teach the beginner as well as the more advanced. She has also been VERY flexible with lesson days and times. [working around my son's busy sports schedule]. She is a treasure in Glen Cove!

Mrs. Tamara is a talented, exceptional and inspiring teacher for my 2 kids. She has been teaching them for 5 years. She is always caring, constantly encouraging them to play challenging pieces, and very patient. She has instilled in them a love for music, and my kids have in turn grown in their musical ability.

Hello! I have been playing and teaching piano, organ, and keyboards (all styles, levels and ages) for more than 40 years. I will teach in your home on your instrument and gained a degree in Jazz Piano from Birmingham Conservatoire in the UK. Teaching is my passion and my lessons cover all aspects of playing including basic keyboard layout, posture, fingering, ear training, improvisation, music theory and general musicianship. However, lessons and curriculum will be shaped to the individual needs of the student. I fully understand the different approach needed for children (could be a great future pianist) and adults, who in most cases are looking for a creative, fun and entertaining hobby. Yes, practice and study are essential but most important - learning must be fun! I am friendly, patience, trustworthy and reliable and look forward to helping you achieve your musical goals.

About Andrew
Andy has been involved in music his entire working life playing the piano, home keyboard and home organ (not classical style) for over 40 years. He and his wife recently moved from the UK where he studied piano, achieving a jazz piano performance degree. He went on to work in the music industry for many years. This included working for a number of music education organizations producing materials for the Technics Music Academy and Yamaha Music School systems, training teachers for these systems, many piano / keyboard performances across the UK and Europe plus over 30 visits to Japan to work on instrument design for Yamaha and Casio. However, he continued to teach piano / keyboard on a private basis through all these activities. Teaching is his passion and he is a friendly, positive and reliable person who has assisted many students o
f all ages and all levels to improve their musical skills. He can teach all styles of music but has an expertise for Jazz (improvisation, jazz scales, chord structures, etc) Blues, American Song Book and artists such as Billy Joel, Elton John, Sting etc. He will come to your home and teach on your instrument which is very important. He will shape the tuition process to the individual needs of the student and looks forward to meeting and helping you reach your musical goals.

I am a concert pianist and organist who has performed and taught private instructions for decades: from beginners to advanced players, adults coming back after a long time away, to clients who want custom arrangements, goals.

Though my bakground is the classical tradition, I've taught non-classical including jazz, pop, new age and other styles. Regardless, unless foundational study and structure is needed, students can expect to work on what music they like, and learn new skills to play it better. If I can play some of the most difficult piano ever written, then I have the answers to help YOU play better!

I look forward to working you!
