View Full Profile

Hello! Glad to be back in the neighborhood! I am a professional pianist, vocalist, songwriter, actress, director and teacher. I have a lifetime of experience in the performing arts (I started performing at 6 years of age) and many years teaching music and theater arts! What are you looking for? If one of the answers to this question is a teacher who truly understands how to communicate in an understanding and fun way...then let my years of experience help you to achieve your goals. I have taught many students of all ages and levels in private, public, and workshop environments. I always try to get to know my students - learn about their musical experiences as well as skill level; tastes; and what they want to achieve at the piano. I teach in the classical method and specialize in applying this method to various genres such as pop, rock, jazz and Broadway! I have coached students for the Young Musicians Festival (The Schubert Club of CT) and all of my students were judged

About Sharon
Sharon knew at a very young age that the arts were her life and doesn't remember a time when she wasn't singing, dancing and acting. She began her professional singing and acting career at the age of six years old and has performed at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. She plays the piano and is a versatile musician with a strong foundation in the classical method that really rocks!!
Sharon grew up in Brooklyn, NY and has trained with some of New York City's premier voice, piano and acting teachers. Sharon majored in Theater and graduated cum laude with honors in theater.
She is a certified public school theater teacher and has worked with hundreds of performing arts students. As a private instructor, she has guided her students in piano, voice, and acting.
Sharon is a fun and innovative teacher. Her wealth of experiences has made
her a well-rounded teacher. She has a great sense of humor with a serious commitment to her art and her students. A winning combination for you!

I honestly don't know where to begin. Sharon West has helped me in so many ways! Not just vocally but in all aspects of performing and in life. I was a 13 year old little girl when I met Sharon for the first time. I immediately knew she was the person that was going to help me achieve my goals. I don't know how I got so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with such an amazing, caring and loving vocal coach but I was totally blessed! Thank you, Sharon for all that you have done for me. Love you lots Sharon

When my daughter was younger, she would sing in her room, the shower or anywhere else she felt comfortable. She was very shy but loved to sing. When she was 13 years old, she lost her grandfather. This was devastating to her and the rest of our family. After the loss, she decided she wanted to make singing a part of her life. Not being musically inclined myself, I didn't know where to turn. Lucky for us, we stumbled upon Sharon West! For the next 6 years, Sharon worked with my daughter weekly teaching her so much more than just music. She guided her on all aspects of performance from singing to entertaining her audience. Sharon West was a huge part of our lives and we could never thank her enough. My daughter now performs in front of thousands and you would never have known she was every a shy, quit little girls. Sharon is by far, the best vocal/performance coach. Love and Miss you Sharon

I took lessons with Sharon weekly from the age of 14 until I was about 17 years old. Still to this day (I'm almost 21), I remember the tips she gave me about singing. Sharon is such a wonderful person that I've had the privilege of getting to know. She is very knowledgeable about the professional business and about how to be the best singer you can be. She definitely changed my voice for the better. As a student at Emerson College, I'm constantly performing, Sharon's lessons always ring true for me.

By using well-thought scaffolding methods, based on research and experience, my students are given the opportunity to advance further in less time their piano study inclusive of performance and technical skills. As a music teacher for over 10 years, each students' zone of proximal development is facilitated based on their individual interests and strengths in a nurturing and safe environment.

About Foteini
Personal Statement

I believe that progressive teaching must employ constructive pedagogical strategies to foster meaningful musical experiences for students to build and to exhibit competence. My pedagogical model is comprised of a student-centered approach to produce attainable challenges and to affect affirmative changes that will physically, technically, and emotionally enrich each student's performance.

During instruction, I exercise scaffolding methods to facilitate the students' zone of proximal development and innovative questioning to augment students' cognitive thinking and critical thinking skills. The process of musical learning is purposeful when it is facilitated within a nurturing environment to motivate the students' intrinsic interests and that is my goal!

Currently, I prepare my students for singing auditions o
n Broadway and off-Broadway productions, CCM Singing Competitions, Commercials, Musical Theatre Productions, The Voice, X-Factor, American Idol, Specialized Performance Schools, College Music Performances, and Choirs. A number of my piano students prepare for the NYSSMA and ABRSM examinations. As a clinical trained Vocologist, I also work with students to correct vocal fold injuries and to prevent further trauma, as well to improve phonatory production during singing.

Education / Training

As a music professional, I specialize in Voice (Contemporary Commercial Music), Vocology, and in Piano (Classical). I am certified by the New York Singer Teacher™s Association and the Somatic Voicework The LoVetri Method. In addition, I am a City/State Teacher Certified in Music (K-12) and a member of NYSTA, NATS, and MEANYC.

I am a graduate of Columbia University in Music & Music Education, M.A., Ed.M. I have a comprehensive background and training in Piano, Voice, Vocal Pedagogy, Vocology, and General Music. I studied music at Hunter College and I obtained a Bachelor Degree in Italian from Queens College. As an instrumentalist, I attended Fiorello LaGuardia of Music & Art & Performing Arts H.S. and the Center for Preparatory Studies in Music at Queens College.

My professional development is comprised of studies in Vocology at Keidar Voice Instititute, in Voice Management Techniques at Westminster Choir College, and in Dalcroze at Lucy Moses School.

Over the years, I studied with acclaimed vocal professionals such as Dr. Anat Keidar, Dr. Jeanne Goffi-Fynn, and David Sabella-Mills among others.

Fay is such an amazing teacher! I got into Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School thanks to her. Best Teacher I've had, she helps train your voice and goes through the vocal anatomy so you understand techniques such as proper breathing, posture, coordination, grounding, acting, diction...etc. I've been her student for about a year three years now and I have to say that my voice has improved so much as a performer all thanks to her! If you get the chance, at least take a class, you will not regret it!

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!

Commack, NY

I like to give students an opportunity to play a wide variety of music: classical, folk, jazz, ragtime, show tunes, popular. It is most essential that basic skills be learned: note reading, scales, arpeggios, chords, technique. At every lesson, scales, chords, and arpeggios are reviewed. All major and minor keys are taught. NYSSMA preparation for auditions are encouraged, but not required.
I like to tailor the lessons to the needs and wishes of the student, to better motivate learning.

About Ada
I am a certified public school music teacher with a bachelors degree in music and a masters degree in music education with a concentration in piano. I have successfully prepared students for NYSSMA auditions for many years.
My philosophy of teaching is to fit the lessons to the student, always working on improving musical knowledge and skills. I like to use a combination of classical, folk, and popular music to keep the student's interest. Scales, arpeggios, and chords are introduced early and are an integral part of every assignment. I have held annual recitals to hone student's performance skills.
As a member of Music Teachers National Association, National Association for Music Education, and Suffolk Piano Teachers Foundation, I learn new ways to teach, as well as giving my students more opportunities to perform.
I enjoy w
orking with students of all ages, to see them grow musically and become able to learn the skills necessary for them to play whatever they wish.

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.
