About Pedro
I am comfortable teaching all types of students: young beginners, general music-lovers, and conservatory-bound students.

I'm assistant principal violist in Brooklyn's main orchestra: The Metro Chamber Orchestra. I also have a variety of freelance projects (like playing my homeland's tango with the Astoria Tango Orchestra).

I've been teaching and conducting at The Washington Heights Community Conservatory of Fine Arts for the part 7 years. I also teach privately out of a studio near Union Square/Gramercy.

*** Lesson Details ***

Kids:
I tend to be emphasize structured practice. I generally like to have students perform in some way (whether it's a real test, mock test, or a school recital) so that they have goals to practice for throughout the semester.

I also think it's crucial for musicians to be critical thinkers as wel
l, so from time to time I will challenge kids with side assignments that may be relevant to opening their mind on the subject.

Most of the time, if at least one of the parents has an active involvement in supporting the lessons then the progress of students is very strong (like emphasizing key points in the week, or just having open dialogue with kids about the process). It is by no means necessary, but it can help a lot.

****
Adults:
Often adult beginners are curious as to what the learning curve is. Generally, by the 3rd or 4th month of study all the basic elements start falling in. But although the beginning requires patience, I find a key to making it work is finding how to enjoy the small things in practice... which will later construct a beautiful sound.

I keep a sense of humor while teaching and performing (always when and if appropriate), but I am also very serious about getting students to their best potential. This means that for every student I adapt the approach to best suit their needs.

I keep organized lesson plans as a general rule, but some students work better without them, so I adjust in those cases.

I'm an adult student, but you can feel a comfort and relaxed atmosphere in the immediate presence of Pedro. This is such an important factor in learning an instrument. This feeling would serve to greatly help and child right on through adult learning. Good Job!

About Ran
Hi there! I am Ran. I have been teaching individual violin lessons to children and adults of all musical levels since 2001. I am currently available to teach lessons at your home also at my studio. I have helped students to prepare and to pass the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music graded music exams and assessments level 1-8 including music theory, aural test, and the instrumental auditions from all three Baroque, Classical and 20th Century contemporary periods. I have also helped middle school and high school students to prepare and to enter the Regional Advanced Orchestral Programs in New Jersey. I hold both of my Bachelor of Music and Master of Music in Violin Performance from Manhattan School of Music in New York City. A trained Suzuki violin teacher, and a current member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas, I have
been serving as a part time Suzuki violin teacher in private and community music schools in New Jersey, as well as performing actively as an orchestral and chamber musician in NYC and NJ.

My goal of teaching is to improve the student's intellect, mental-physical collaboration, to develop the skills including aural ability, emotional connection to music, enjoy playing, and to develop strong self-discipline that the students can apply to other activities. I am passionate to keep this precious human art form alive, especially in these future generations!

I grew up in professional conservatories, and started playing the violin at age 4 instructed by my mother who is a full time professional violinist with the Shanghai Symphony. I was so lucky to have her as my first violin teacher that through her teaching, I understand how important it is to study with a patient, encouraging and dedicated teacher. Teaching is such a rewarding experience to me that I am able to use my skills and knowledge to help students developing their interest and potential talent as well as achieving their multiple learning purposes.

Ran was such a wonderful instructor and overall person. My son loved her and so did I. My 10 year old learned so much Ran, because she has so much knowledge and passion for the violin. I just recently moved out of the area, so I am not within driving distance anymore to Ran. However, I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn the violin or sharpen an already existing skillset. I believe Ran has transferred her passion for the violin to my son and to myself as well. I wish I could give her 10 stars! She is awesome!!!!

I teach beginner and intermediate violin students helping them develop their bow technique and intonation.

About Yoon Jae
I am a highly-skilled professional musician certified as a certified Steinway education partner with over 14 years of teaching experience. I offer lessons in classical piano, violin, viola, conducting, arranging/orchestration as well as private tutoring in ear training and theory.

My main instrument is piano and I specialize in teaching students who already play the instrument and wish to get a more in-depth experience with piano literature by learning new repertoire and developing their technique. I also teach adult beginners and young beginners whose parents have a dedicated commitment to having their children make music an integral part of their education. For all my students, I emphasize the importance of practicing efficiently and developing critical listening skills. This encourages consistent improvement and whatever your perso
nal piano goals and skill levels are, I will help you improve and enjoy playing the piano more. I am very patient, encouraging and supportive of your desire to play the piano better. In addition to piano, I teach beginner and intermediate violin and viola students.

I encourage all my students to perform once or twice a year but this is entirely optional and based on the student's comfort level.

I am available and willing to travel to your home for an extra fee as long as public transportation is available.

I'm so glad I ended up with Yoon Jae for my very first violin lesson. He took me through the first steps - as basic as holding the violin - really carefully and not at all condescendingly, even though I'm an adult who never even learned to read music. In fact, he couldn't have been more patient. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to learn violin in a supportive atmosphere!
