I just recently started with Dee. She is doing a great job of helping me realistically assess my performance, and constructively set goals to improve the aspects that need work. It's been fun and very helpful.

Our 8 year old son had his first Guitar lesson with Dee this past weekend, and she was amazing. She wasted no time getting down to brass tacks with our son, showing him the various parts of the guitar, how to hold it and within minutes he knew two chords. She was able to keep our kiddo engaged, offered great praise and positive feedback/reinforcement and kept him on task for the entire 45 minute lesson. We could not be happier and cannot wait to see what he learns during his next lessons with her!

I am a classically trained pianist with five completed degrees in Piano Performance from Germany and the US.

About Anastasia

After Anastasia’s Carnegie Hall Debut in 2006, the New York Concert Review wrote: "For a critic, hearing a new pianist with a truly warm, luscious tone is like breathing in the scent of jasmine blooming - a pleasure to be recalled again and again - and so I'm happy to report that from the first note she touched at her Weill Hall recital, Anastasia S. was a genuine pleasure to listen to. Every piece, every measure, every note - no matter how complex the texture, no matter how many strands of melody and accompaniment - was wrapped in a halo of golden tone..."

Born in Kiev, Ukraine, Anastasia S. gave her first solo recital at the age of eleven. Ms. S. is a graduate of the Hochschule für Musik Würzburg, Germany, and holds a Master’s and a Doctorate degrees from The Hartt School at the University of Hartford.

In 2003 Anastasia received

First Prize in the 14th International Piano Competition for Young Pianists in Rome, Italy, and was awarded a Special Prize. In year 2006 Ms. S. won the Puigcerda International Piano Competition in Spain. In the same year she recorded the complete works for piano and orchestra by Balakirev with the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra for NAXOS records. In 2008 Ms. S. received the “Outstanding Award”, which granted her a return engagement to give a second solo recital at Carnegie Hall in New York City. In 2010 Anastasia was awarded a Special Prize for the best interpretation of French composition at the International Piano Competition “Parnassos” in Mexico. Her solo recital in 2008 at the Myra Hess Concert Series in Chicago was broadcast live on WFMT Radio, in Internet, and on the TV-Station “Channel 25“; Anastasia was invited to play there again in 2011. Her career continues with numerous appearances as a soloist both in concertos with orchestra, in solo recitals, and in chamber music concerts in Ukraine, Germany, Macedonia, Italy, Switzerland, France, Russia, USA, and Japan. Anastasia’s recent engagements included a performance at the Bolshoi Hall of Moscow Conservatory as well as solo appearances with orchestras in the United States and Germany featuring concerti by Prokofieff, Mozart, Grieg, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, and Stravinsky. In 2014 her new CD "Music of Russian-Jewish composers for oboe and piano" was released. Currently, Anastasia is working on her two new solo CD's for Centaur Records.

In 2013, Anastasia was granted the Extraordinary Abilities in the Arts permanent US residence, as one of a small percentage of those who have risen to the top in their field of endeavor. Anastasia served as an Adjunct Faculty in Piano and Chamber Music at the Hartt School, and is currently on faculty of the New England Conservatory in Boston.

I offer scholarships for advanced level students upon request.

As an adult beginner, I chose Anastasia for more personalized instruction, especially in technique, after learning the basics through community center group lessons. I have not continued only because another equally well-qualified instructor who lives close by, within walking distance, has become available. I am very pleased with the lessons and pointers that I have received. Anastasia is professional, encouraging, and friendly. An especially helpful part of her instruction is the set of comments and suggestions that she writes down to guide practice between lessons. If the neighbor instructor does not work out, I’ll be back.

A few years ago, I moved from Ohio to Florida and was concerned about finding a new piano teacher. To my disappointment, after trying two teachers, I was still left looking for a better one. That's when I had the pleasure of meeting Lana. Lana has reinforced my knowledge of music theory, challenged my technical skills, and most importantly improved my overall ability to play. Through Lana's various teaching techniques and exercises, I have never played better and or had more enthusiasm to keep learning!

I have been taking online lessons with Ms. Lana for many years. I absolutely love it! Lana is an awesome teacher. She is very knowledgeable, professional, patient, fun, friendly and is a great piano player. It's so much easier for me to take lessons online as I am a working mom. She has helped me to read notes very well. I would definitely recommend Lana to anyone. I always get compliments when I play the piano. Lana is also now teaching my son and he absolutely loves it! He has learned how to play the piano and read notes in no time and everyone absolutely adores how he plays the piano!

First time playing piano? Resuming after years (decades?) of not playing the piano? No matter your age or experience, you can always learn and improve!

Pop songs, jazz ballads, classical pieces, or movie/game themes, there must be something you are interested in playing and get better!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I enjoy tutoring (doing it ever since I was in high school for my classmates) and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!

i’ve taken lessons with rebecca for 3 1/2 years now and it’s been a very positive experience for me. rebecca is very kind and patient, knowledgeable and talented. i’m older than her average student but i’ve seen her work with a wide range of students and instruments. i would recommend her to anyone interested in improving their musical skills.

Rebecca is literally the best. She is personalable and friendly and super easy to get along with. I was super nervous about sharing something so personal and intimate as a song I had written from my heart with an ACTUAL professional. But Rebecca was exactly that. A professional. It turns out Rebecca's amazing talents and skills as singer, a musician, and a song writer, are matched only by her ability to share her love and insight with other lovers of music such as myself. I felt almost immediately at ease and confident with her, and after only a few sessions was absolutely amazed how much I had learned about singing, song writing, and, if I'm being perfectly honest, myself; both as a musician and an artist. I was referred to Rebecca from friends, whose children she taught, and they and their parents both absolutely adored her. As a more *ahem* mature student, I was expecting some tips on theory and technique, and figured I'd just try, having strummed and picked away in hiding for many years. I have to say I am absolutely blown away with how much I've learned, and how easy it was with Rebecca's guidance and tutelage. If you love music and want to make your own, Rebecca is who you need to go see.

"Hi Miss Sylvia was so patient jazalynn just loved her first session looking forward to the next"
Dana
"Amy has been instrumental in training many of my children in the study of piano. She has laid a great foundation in music theory and instilled in them th
e discipline of practicing and a love of classical music. We discovered that classical training lays an excellent foundation for all other genres. Amy’s passion for the classical can be heard no matter the style that is being taught or performed. Some of our children have since branched off into other instruments. However, their instructors have been amazed with their knowledge of music theory. They were able to skip the beginning basics of their instruments and move on to harder selections. I would highly recommend Amy as an instructor. She is professional, fun, and passionate.

We have since moved to another state and I am still searching for an instructor of her caliber."

"Andree-Ann is a great teacher! I hadn't formally played piano in about twenty years when I decided to start taking lessons again. It's like she picked me
up and scrubbed all the rust off and now I'm playing better than I think I ever played. She's super patient, breaks the music down into digestible parts, tells you what you need to work on but also acknowledges your improvements and the things you've done well. As an adult learner, the pieces I'm working on is mostly self-directed with her guidance, which is cool. I would totally recommend her."

"Lynne Nofi taught me piano for several years when I was in middle and high school, and I’m very grateful for what an excellent job she did in instructing
me in piano. I was able to complete all 6 levels of NYSSMA, and after graduating high school I began teaching lessons myself using the knowledge of theory and technique I gained through lessons with Lynne. She is not only a great teacher but also a wonderful, kind, caring person. I always looked forward to our lessons together and her positive, caring instruction. I recommend her 100/100!"
