My 10 year old son has no musical knowledge what-so-ever. We wanted him to have some basics, and he was curious about the guitar. Sadly our family isn't musical and it's hard to know where to start. We were lucky to have engaged Stephen. His calm, patient, encouraging approach has been the perfect complement to my son's temperament.

When I overhear snippets of exchanges during their lesson I am excited that my son is making connections and having a conversation about what he's learning. I can't support his instruction because of my complete inability to read sheet music—so I am particularly pleased that he seems to be making observations and taking small steps towards understanding something that confounds me.

My son looks forward to his time with teacher and (so far) is interested in practicing too. Of course we'd recommend Stephen!

My first session with Stephen was both technically and emotionally rewarding. He was both able to pass-on his musical expertise (his tips) and patiently encouraging my understanding of vocal technique.

Carissa Austria, age 8, learned piano with Jeff. Her lessons were instrumental in giving her the incentive to practice on her own. Jeff created lessons that made my daughter curious on how to play on her own and experimented with certain keys and sounds. Thank you Jeff for giving my daughter the deep insight to playing the piano not only from her weekly lessons but encouraging her to practice on her own with minimum supervision.

Sincerely
Gerry Austria

Private Piano Teacher

I recently graduated from The Juilliard School with a BMA in Piano Performance, having studied with legendary pedagogue and Chair of Piano Dr. Veda Kaplinsky, and fabled concert pianist Hung-Kuan Chen, whose students also include the likes of Yuja Wang and Sean Chen. I've traveled the musical world and studied with several of the world's most celebrated concert pianists, including András Schiff, Richard Goode, Ari Vardi, and Sergei Babayan, mentor of international piano star Daniil Trifonov, as one of eight students worldwide accepted to his final Babayan International Piano Academy. I've performed with the Seattle Symphony amongst various other orchestras in Europe and China, and perform regularly as a soloist in the greater NYC area and Seattle at venues including Carnegie Hall. Since beginning my teaching career, I've looked forward to sharing my knowledge of music as an international language with students across all ages, in order to nurture their artistic talents and unique ...

About Max

Most recently, I was sponsored as one of eight pianists worldwide to attend the prestigious Verbier Festival Academy in Switzerland, summer of 2018. I was the sole American and Juilliard pianist to receive the honor.

I am a graduate of The Juilliard School in New York City where I earned a Bachelors of Music, and studied with the Susan W. Rose Chair of Piano Department, Dr. Yoheved Kaplinsky and legendary concert pianist, Hung-Kuan Chen; my history with the institution dates back to Juilliard Pre-College, where I graduated as a Juilliard Scholarship recipient. In addition to my formal musical education in classical piano, I'm also a graduate of the Lakeside School in Seattle, a highly selective, college preparatory school offering a rigorous academic program; notable alumni include Bill Gates, Paul Allen and the McCaw brothers. I am w

ell-versed and fluent in both English and Mandarin Chinese.

I am well accustomed to working with young children, adolescents and teenagers along with the elderly in retirement homes, and hope to nurture and instill in each of my students a genuine, individualized passion for music, along with imparting to each student all the knowledge I've attained in 19 years of musical experience off and on stage, playing at the highest caliber of competition in the world's most acclaimed venues and studying with some of the world's most sought after pedagogues. Furthermore, my goal is to accelerate the learning curve and to bestow all I know as quickly as possible, not wasting time on useless irrelevancies. I've taught many years privately in the greater Seattle area, as a private teacher at the Aspen Music Festival and as a private teacher serving the NYC area since 2015. My students have won regional and international competitions for young people, have performed at prestigious venues such as Benaroya Hall, Alice Tully @ Lincoln Center, the Kauffman Center, Foundation LV in Paris, and Carnegie Hall, and have been admitted to Pre-College institutions at Juilliard and Manhattan School of Music.

Max is an amazing instructor and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to seriously learn and enjoy the piano. Before I began my lessons with Max, I was stuck on the same piece for two months, there was very little progress being made. I had a total of two lessons with Max and now I'm able to comfortably play the piece from memory. I cannot stress enough how beneficial he was in my huge progress jump. I look forward to every lesson knowing I'm going to learn and be exposed to something new every time. I've always wanted to learn how to play the piano, but I thought I was too old now to even try. I'm so thankful that I took the leap anyway and started this amazing journey of learning the piano and I couldn't of asked for a better guide than Max on this journey.

It’s very involved with you as a student. It’s also very apparent that he loves teaching his students. This makes his teaching very effective.

Tact & Kent
He is a very promising Juilliard student.
His teaching reflects being educated by the world’s most sought after classical piano mentors.
What he teaches is unorthodox and complex in nature, but he teaches and demonstrates effectively in an easily comprehensive manner.
I believe that learning his skills will have a tremendous impact on my child’s future in both music and life.
I strongly recommend him to anyone who cannot be satisfied with other instructors.
PS: He works well to encourage and nurture youth, as my sons are 6 and 9 years old.

Private Piano Teacher

Hello! Through my four years at Juilliard I have studied with amazing pianists such as Frank Kimbrough and Dan Nimmer.
Although I majored in jazz trombone, I have been a proficient piano player since I was very young. I use the piano everyday to compose, so I am more than capable of teaching beginning to intermediate players how to properly play. I have a very cohesive lesson plan designed to give any student a well rounded basis for playing the piano. Teaching has always been my biggest passion, I can't wait to work with you!
Contact me for more info!

Happy practicin'!

About Sam

Hello! I'm Sam and I'm a graduate of the Juilliard School. I'm a huge music nerd and teaching is one of my biggest passions. For eight years, I have been teaching students of various ages and backgrounds, compiling lesson plans designed to work with students at ALL LEVELS. As a prominent NYC based jazz trombonist/bandleader/composer, I am more than qualified to teach any student.
I have given numerous masterclasses, workshops, lessons and group lessons in everything from classical trombone technique to jazz history. I offer fun, cohesive lessons catered to your ability in the following subjects:

--Trombone (jazz and/or classical, beginning to advanced)

--Jazz Harmony (any instrument [bass, piano, drums, guitar, etc.] beginning to advanced)

--Piano lessons (beginning to intermediate)

--Music Theory and/or AP Music Theory p

rep (any instrument, beginning to advanced)

--Ear Training (any instrument, beginning to advanced)

--Arranging/Composition (any instrument, beginning to advanced

--Songwriting (any instrument, beginning to advanced)

*Since I charge the same rate for each of these subjects, many of my students request to split the lesson time into 2 or more subjects

If you have any questions about my specific lesson plans for a particular subject, please don't be afraid to shoot me an email!

Happy practicin'!

ok Sam is fantastic!
the connection was a little weird at first but it was on my end I think because the second I moved to my living room it was steady. Rather than find a local teacher I just figured to see if I could find someone affordable online, and wow, he also went to Juiliard!
6 out of 5!

I'm so lucky I found Sam! I used to play piano and was hoping to brush up on technique, learn jazz chords/harmony, and play along improvising with a jazz soloist. Getting a Juilliard trained musician for this price is a STEAL, I highly recommend.
June 21, 2019
Lawrence
I bounced around with a few other teachers who had flashy profiles, but none of them had as thorough, personalized, or challenging of an approach as Sam. He was so quick to diagnose my mistakes and had a way of making the trombone fun rather than frustrating (imagine that!!)

TEN STARS!!!!

Vyacheslav is the complete music teacher. He is a deeply analytical artist and is extremely perceptive and helpful. His style is at once humanistic and disciplined - he is a master artist AND technician. He goes out of his way to help you beyond the duration of your lessons and encourages you to think and explore. Seize the opportunity to work with him if you get it. I guarantee it will be time well-spent.

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.
