About Dyce
Dyce’s action-packed lessons get aspiring students learning real songs in no time—all while teaching them music theory and scales that connects the music to relatable, practical theory. His custom-tailored lessons are based on this realization. “I know that all of my students are unique, both as people, and as musicians,” Dyce states, “so I realized that my lessons should celebrate these differences.” Instead of following a rigid, “cookie-cutter” approach to teaching, he makes allowances for these differences, and custom tailors a lesson plan that enriches their musical tastes, goals, and strengths. Dyce has learned, over two decades of playing and teaching professionally, when to push students—and when to stay out of the way. This sort of expert guidance helps students flourish, because they learn music on their own terms.

About Michael
As a recent graduate of the Conservatory of Music at SUNY Purchase, I have been a performing classical pianist for nearly 20 years. I hold a Masters Degree in Piano Performance, and have had the great advantage of studying with many of today's top classical musicians, including Steven Lubin, Stephanie Brown, Paul Ostrovsky, Julia Lichten, and Stuart Isacoff. I've won many top prizes in competitions and have performed extensively throughout New York State. I'm very lucky to have had the opportunity to perform for the Governor, and both NYS Senators.

Having taught music since the age of 15, I am also an experienced and motivated teacher. Nothing excites me more than sharing my love and knowledge of music with others. Whether you are looking to boost your NYSSMA score, and compete in competitions, or are just starting out, I can tailor
lessons to your specific level and musical interests. Being in my 20's, I have a great rapport with children, and adults alike.

About Polina
I am an experienced classical pianist with honorable degrees obtained from the most prestigious musical institutions in the world - State Academy of Music (Russian conservatory of music) located in Minsk, Belarus, as well as The College of Saint-Rose, Albany, New York, Unites States. Piano has been my main area of concentration since I was five years old, so I consider myself to be a top professional in the music field.

I really enjoy working with highly motivated students and welcome various ages and levels. I have worked both with professional musicians and beginner level music enthusiasts. As a teacher and piano soloist, I have worked in various countries including Russia, Italy, France and the United States. My international teaching experience has been showing wonderful results, and I am proud of my students winning the highest p
laces in the international auditions, competitions and festivals worldwide.

My thoroughly developed teaching method is built on the best combination of Russian and European traditions in music education, and it is intended to build and advance skills in reading, technique, theory, to enrich music appreciation by exploring compositions of variety of styles and genres, to discover the internal abilities and approach to an instrument, and master performing techniques.

About Amber
I have been teaching private lessons since 2008, but have been studying music since I was only 4 with non stop private and in school lessons. I now have my Bachelor's degree in Music education and am working toward my Masters in Music performance and Instruction.
I love working with my students. Watching them succeed at what they do is what makes my day great. I always love to have a fun atmosphere around me and enjoy every minute it. Music is great for self expression a great Escape or an easy pass-time. It's nothing that should be stressful, but the opposite and that is what my lessons aim to do. Provide an educational, but fun and expressive learning experience to carry with you or your child throughout your lives.

My son takes piano from Amber and I cannot say enough on how talented she is. She has so much patience and cares about her students. He responds well to her and is learning so quickly! She challenges him to continue to grow but does it in a way that is fun for a child his age. We think she is great!

I have taught instrumental music in New York State public schools for the past 18 years. I have experience teaching general music, music appreciation and music theory to students in grades K-12 and in school band programs for students in grades 4-12 and teaching private music lessons in a local studio and within my own home to students ages 9-60 on a variety of instruments.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Music Education, a Bachelor of Arts in Music (performance on flute & piccolo) from Hartwick College and a Master of Science in Curriculum Development and Instructional Technology from SUNY Albany. In addition to my public education experience, I have performed in numerous pit orchestras for musical productions in my area.

My passion is helping others continue their life long love of music and achieve their goals on their instrument

About Rachael
Professional Writer.

My name is Rachael, and I look forward to the opportunity of teaching you writing, whether it is for an academic or creative purpose. My background is philosophy of language; I am a doctoral student of philosophy with an attention to poetics, with one published book and two graduate theses, both having received awards of distinction, under my belt -- if you are looking to improve your reading, critical thinking, and/or writing skills, I am an experienced teacher/tutor/guide/mentor (with 10+ years experience) potentially fit for you!

Depending on your needs, a session can range from grammatical analysis (essentially proofreading services) to an in-depth exploration of your works in-progress, with suggestions for editing or inspiration for further avenues of tweaking or research. There is little I would not be op
en to discussing together, so feel free to reach out!

In terms of high school students, I teach what is relevant to your classes while maintaining an awareness of those skills required in college, attempting to incorporate such skills simultaneously. Regarding undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students, beyond working in in-house writing centers, I have been both a TA / teacher's assistant at universities from Florida, North Carolina, all the way to international Switzerland, in addition to teaching my own experimental system of reading and writing at academic residencies and workshops. I never introduce my own theories unless it is specifically requested, but this goes to show I am experienced at thinking in-depth about diverse problems in the field of language. I am a proponent of creative solutions to problems and look forward to working with you.

Rachael is a great teacher of writing. I had finished schooling years ago but had still a passion for communication. I came to her with many vague ideas that she helped me to develop. She helped me to clarify them even more once I made the step to putting them into writing. She is generous in her manner and all of her commentary. I've really reached a high point in my intellectual and creative life working with her. Highly recommended!!
