Private Classical Piano Teacher

Ms. Ratcliffe’s piano students begin learning by reading intervals while establishing a technical foundation, which includes building strength in the fingers to aid the body to play naturally according to each student’s unique hand shape, using the arm weight and gravity to help press the keys down (“dipping doughnuts”), and correct posture and body position. Ms. Ratcliffe believes practice skills are very important, and will discuss and help each student discover how to practice, including maximizing time efficiency. Her approach to reading music involves recognizing musical patterns and using clues to establish a hand position rather than immediate note memorization, allowing a student to progress quickly and transpose easily. Ms. Ratcliffe will often supplement learning piano with music theory and sight reading activities to reinforce a variety of learning styles.

About Jamie

In 2019, Ms. Ratcliffe sang Norma in Bellini’s Norma at the Bruno Walter Auditorium, Lincoln Center, and made her professional recital debut “Love and Music” at the National Opera Center featuring art song, opera and musical theater. Her recent roles include Wellgunde in Das Rheingold (Wagner), Gi

Hello, my daughter has been taking piano lessons from Jamie since she was 7. She is now 10. Under Jamie’s tutelage, my daughter has gone from a shy little girl playing plunk plunk plunk to a beaming with enthusiasm pianist playing Queen’s Bahamian Rhapsody at the yearly piano recital. For four weeks, Jamie and my daughter tore through 4 sections of the Rhapsody that Jamie had modified for her. It was amazing to see the dedication of Jamie and the interest and fun in my daughter. At the recital she was fantastic and what a smile. Jamie is a very accomplished artist and piano teacher, she focuses my daughter on good piano techniques while having fun. For example, while Jamie taught my daughter to play songs she also focused my daughter to read music rather than memorize the music, My daughter was able to transform this training into playing other musical instruments. At eight she took up the flute and quickly moved into advanced band. While I focused on the accomplishments of my daughter as any proud parent would do, the foundation of her success began with the training she received from Jamie. Jamie has taught my daughter for three years and we are going to keep coming – until my daughter grows up and leaves for college.

Jamie is compassionate, erudite, & challenges you. She knows how to push you, but, simultaneously, always has your back. I look forward to my lesson every week.

My daughter really enjoys having Jamie as her teacher! Since she was 6 she has gained confidence and appreciation for the guitar. Jamie is patient and has been terrific with guidance and keeping her interested through the lessons. We wouldn’t want anyone else!

So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I have such a great time teaching piano lessons. At whatever level the student is at, child, adult, beginner, intermediate, there is always so much to explore on the piano. At the same time, there is always something to accomplish right then and there. There is a great ebb and flow to lessons. I teach classical and I can also teach basic pop/folk/jazz piano.

Svetlana has been teaching my son, who’s 10 years old, for 3 years. She’s kind and very knowledgeable. My son loves going to his lessons and looks forward to it every week. Svetlana teaches him musical theory, scales, and classical pieces and he has thrived with her instruction. Last year, he won a silver medal at the Sonatina competition! I highly recommend Svetlana as a piano teacher.

Ms Belsky has a unique ability to analyze a student's current pianistic situation and to guide them toward a deeper understanding of the best technique for achieving a more expressive performance. She has a deep knowledge of the history and performance practices of each musical style. She is generous in her observations, comments and suggestions.

Online Classical Piano Teacher

My teaching philosophy revolves around creating a customized curriculum based on the needs and interests of my student. The best way to engage students is to teach the music they enjoy and makes them passionate. I maintain my dedication to building passionate musicians while upholding rigor and musical theory within the student's personal interests. If you complete 25+ lessons in a year, I also offer a recital in the Spring for a great performance opportunity and an overall great time.

He makes my daughter play through a piece slowly without mistake first.
And then he will sing along and she can play in a steady tempo.

"I am 85 years old and hired Fawn to teach me piano. It was my childhood dream. Within the 2 years, I've been taking, I have completely mastered a high concerto level of playing. Under Fawn's guidance, I have moved quickly, thoroughly and efficiently. I even performed on stage 2 different years in her Talent Share's (audiences of over 100)! Fawn has taught me classical, pop, blues, jazz and ragtime. I love playing the blues and songs from my childhood. Fawn does a great job with understanding my goals and giving me tools that fit me and help me achieve them. She is beautiful and a very patient, gentle, loving and intuitive teacher. One day I was making an excuse for my mishap plain by telling her my arthritis had been acting up all week. She laughed and said jokingly, "Bernard, don't blame your arthritis for not practicing!" She's hilarious. I am blessed to have found Fawn. The hours of joy playing the piano has brought me and my wife is priceless. Thank you, Fawn! See you next Tuesday!"

"Having opportunity to work with Mr. Gryaznov, who is a top class performer, is such a privilege. His tremendous experience, both as concert pianist and pedagogue, makes him quite unique. I believe that every student can benefit working with Mr Gryaznov, as he shares his knowledge, talent and advices in a such sincere way.
Having recording sessions in Gryaznoff studio was for me, equally enjoyable process. Relaxed and warm atmosphere, professional equipment, together with the brilliant Hamburg D Steinway makes this studio one of the best of its kind in the heart of New York."
