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.

About Christina
Greetings! My name is Christina and I am a recent Rutgers University graduate with a double major in both music and economics. I have had over 12 years of private training in piano, with additional experience in violin, orchestra, choir and various performance-related events. Over the years I have studied with numerous pianists and incorporated many different methods and techniques that have greatly influenced my own teaching. I have been teaching music lessons to both children and adults since high school, and am comfortable teaching any age. I do believe that a solid foundation in any instrument begins with music theory, and it is something I incorporate little by little into each lesson; however, it is very important to me that the learning process be enjoyable, and I strive to make each lesson as fun, inspiring, and exciting as p
ossible!

*** Lesson Details ***
Curricular rigor is chosen to fit the needs of each individual student, depending on whether the student is preparing for the challenges of a conservatory, or simply learning for recreational needs.
For beginners, I often refer to both the Faber and Music Tree curriculum. However, I am flexible and open to requests from students, since my goal is for students to learn, advance and enjoy the overall experience.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home studio--- upright kawai

second studio---travel from home

room for parents to sit

*** Travel Equipment ***
Keyboard provided.
Student is expected to provide a piano

*** Specialties ***
Focus is primarily on Classical Piano and Music Theory.

This is my first time playing the piano and I was a little timid about taking lessons. Janet is very easy-going and extremely cognizant of my abilities which has helped me to feel more relaxed and I have been able to learn a great deal from her. I am pleasantly surprised by how much I have been able to pick up in such a short time. She is a wonderful teacher.

I've studied classical, jazz and rock piano with the finest teachers in the world, and bring that perspective and experience to each lesson. Learning music should be FUN, which is emphasized particularly with younger students. What do YOU want to be able to do on the piano? I can help get you there!

Having performed on small cabaret stages

As a music teacher for over 10 years, I want to help you to reach your musical goals. Weather it is to read music, play by ear or learn about chord structure. I want my students to truly enjoy playing piano. I believe the learning process is just as important as the final product.

About Jane
My goal of teaching is to help students discover their talent and love for music in a natural way. I began jamming music with my parents when I was 3 years old. I remember the feeling of joy and excitement when making music with them. Now as a teacher, I try to bring this enjoyment based approach to classes and teach my students to not think they are working and instead, enjoy the practice of making music. I believe that when a student is inspired and enjoys the learning process, they naturally strive to get better.

As I began playing piano at a very young age, I've developed an ability called absolute pitch. It is a rare auditory phenomenon that enabled me to play nearly any song I heard, without having a score. And this really help me to teach my students the songs they love as scores are not always readily available and I am abl
e to write out a customized score that suits their level.

My students will have covered different areas of music, including classical repertoire, jazz, rock, pop, composition and theory. I give private lessons for all ages and levels for piano in my technology integrated home studio in Briarcliff Manor, NY. I received my degree from Berklee College of Music and New York University. I'm also certified with the associated board of the Royal school of music and Trinity College of Music in London.

Studio equipment:
Grand piano, full size electric keyboard, violin, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, amps, accordion, microphone, music computer games, recording and composing software, seating area for parents.

My goal is to make piano learning a fun interactive experience for you. I want you not just to learn piano by book, but to be able to "speak" music as it is your language. That's why the emphasis in my lessons will be on ear training, improvisation, learning chords, and learning various piano techniques. At the same time, I will acquaint you with music theory, as well as teach you how to sight read music scores and lead sheets. In no time you will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills that will make you confident in playing piano. You will be able to play pieces not only by famous classical composers, but also pieces that are popular in today's culture. You will also acquire improvisation skills that will make you confident in creating your own music.

My goal is to make piano learning a fun and interactive experience for you. I want you not just to learn piano by book, but to be able to “speak” music as it is your second language. That’s why the emphasis in my lessons will be on ear training, improvisation, learning chords, and different piano techniques. At the same time, I will acquaint you with music theory, as well as teach you how to sight read scores and lead sheets.

Piano has been a huge part of my life since I was six. I attended a music scho
ol in Ukraine where I was trained to become a professional performer with classical repertoire being my main specialty. I have performed for many concerts as well as been part of many competitions which made me confident in my skills.

I have accompanied for various events such as school graduations, school musicals, school choir, competitions, auditions, church events, Sunday services, and holiday events.

I have over 8 years experience in teaching piano to beginner and intermediate levels. I believe that it is a teacher's duty to instill the passion in students by finding a unique and creative way to get them engaged. I combine different methods when teaching music because that each student's learning experience and interest level is different. I usually want to get to know the person and try to establish connection and then I proceed to finding out what method will work best for them.
