I had my first English lesson with Andrea and it was very useful for me. I think that he pointed on my problem. He's a keen observer.

Tired of being frustrated at the piano? Tired of looking looking of looking at the sheet music and still not knowing how to play it? Or lacking the freedom to play any song you want just by ear and in any style, whether pop, jazz, or classical? Wish you could improvise freely in any style, compose and arrange for piano and other instruments?

These are the things I specialize in, I've spent years playing professionally and composing and even producing in all these styles, whether classical, jazz, or popular and contemporary music. I've come up with a unique teaching formula that works for all ages and skill levels, and have a lot of experience teaching dozens of students in a step by step proven method that works. I condense the information you need to know of music theory, technique, style etc. in a quick easy to learn fashion with the right exercises to go along with them. Complete musical freedom!

Whether you are looking for a great teacher to get your kids started playing ...

Daine has been teaching piano to my 8 yr old grandson for 2 months. He provides materials, a little homework and is always available for questions. He responded immediately to my inquiry and has always shown up on time. I would recommend him to anyone!
Nannette
Daine is an outstanding piano instructor. His friendly yet focused lessons have dramatically increased my son's interest in piano. His lessons have reinforced the basics while also covering music theory and expression. This has taken my son's performance ability and understanding of piano to the next level. Daine is also courteous, and always on time.
Tara
Daine is an excellent teacher that moves at a quick pace. In our family he teaches three different levels: An adult beginning learner, a self-taught teenager who needs to learn technique and music reading, and a 7 year old beginner. He adjusts the level of lesson to match each of us and does a great job. He is always on time and has a bunch of cool resources for us. He also explains "why" we are doing the things we're doing, which I find helpful.

I've been learning from Aaron for about 4-5 years now. Hands down the best teacher I've had. He managed to explain the theory behind every piece according to level the student is at and explains it amazingly. In a world where most people just want to learn to play, he ensures that they understand the intrinsic theory behind the pieces. He's helped me with arranging pieces, composing, and learning. Not to mention that he is quite possibly the most versatile person I've met who can do literally anything from writing to music production. Besides piano, he's helped me with being organized and maximizing my productivity. He brings a unique approach to piano and practice that I think has helped me tremendously.
Solomon W.
I had a great experience learning from Aaron. I was a brand new piano player with no knowledge of the instrument or music in general. Aaron was very patient and diligent in teaching me how to set a musical foundation. If you have the pleasure of working with him you will see why he is so highly rated.

Put Your Finger on the Piano Pulse of NYC

By Nadia B. - New York City Piano Teacher

Are you looking to take piano lessons in Long Island City? Do you play the piano, and want to feel the pulse of the NYC piano scene? It’s a vibrant, varied world - full of possibilities for learning, listening and growing. Read on to discover some of the best places to get your piano fix in the city.

One of the coolest stops for piano is right in Long Island City: the Steinway & Sons Piano Factory. You can take a guided tour and see the complete cycle a piano goes through to become one of the prized Steinway pianos. It’s a fascinating tour, full of informative details that will help you understand the mechanics and art of creating sound at the piano. If you make an appointment ahead of time, you can also try the finished pianos at the conclusion of the tour. Watch out, though: to go on this free tour, you often have to make a reservation months ahead of time, so plan ahead! I went on this tour with another pianist friend, and it was a highlight of our piano life in NYC.

Once you know how pianos are made, you can head to Midtown, which is home to all the major piano showrooms. You can meander along 57th Street and encounter showroom after showroom, filled with gleaming pianos. It’s a little slice of heaven for any pianist, and it’s a great way to get to know how different brands of pianos sound. This is useful information for when you’re ready to buy or upgrade your piano, as well as to know how different pianos sound when you’re playing an unfamiliar piano in a competition or concert and need to quickly adjust to it.

Another thing I love to do in NYC is go to concerts, and, as you know, they’re plentiful. My favorite spot for piano recitals is Carnegie Hall (check out this link specifically for piano: http://www.carnegiehall.org/piano/), but you can also hear piano concertos with the New York Philharmonic. If you’re interested in jazz, you can hear great piano music at Birdland, Smoke, Blue Note and many other famous spots. You can also catch free piano recitals at the Juilliard School, where there are many free concerts offered by the students. If you’re into experimental and modern piano repertoire, student recitals can be a great place to hear cutting-edge works, sometimes performed for the first time. Getting to know a wide breadth of repertoire gives you inspiration for pieces you’d like to learn and increases your knowledge of standard piano repertoire.

If you want to play the piano outside of a practice room or showroom in NYC, check out http://www.streetpianos.com/. This innovative project places colorful pianos throughout cities, allowing pedestrians to sit down and play a tune. It can be a great way to reconnect with the joy of playing the piano, and to share what you’re working on in an informal concert with passerby.

The best part about the NYC piano scene is that you never know what you’ll encounter. Innovation is omnipresent, and you have the chance to hear some of the best pianists of today in recital. If you’re a resident of NYC, you can take advantage of the new NYC Identification Card, which may offer discounts to certain performances.

These are just a few helpful tips of things to do and see in NYC while taking piano lessons in Long Island City. Best of luck in your piano adventures, and happy playing!
