I trained in classical piano for17 years.

About Rebecca
I specialize in teaching technique. Through the correct, high placement of vowels and deep breath support I can teach my students to have free, powerful and controlled voices. I teach all genres but I specialize in opera. I was an opera singer myself and I particularly enjoy preparing students for applying to schools to be a voice performance major. I have a student now who is applying to all the top music schools.

Rebecca is not only professional and patient but she is an expert at identifying the best vocal exercises to address your specific weaknesses. She would make a perfect teacher for beginners, experienced singers and anyone in between. I've been a student for about 10 lessons and have noticed a big difference!

I've played piano since I was four years old. You'll learn not just how to become technically proficient, but how to find the emotional nuances in every piece. You'll learn how to interpret every piece you play to make it your own, while still expressing the wishes of the composer. And you'll gain all the technical and theoretical tools you need along the way, all in service of making expressive music.

About Jonathan
I am a classically trained composer working with today's leading performers, and a lifelong guitarist and pianist in rock and indie bands. My teaching/consulting studio will help you develop your full potential as a musical artist, whether you're a songwriter, composer or performer.

Jon is fabulous! He is able to provide a mix of classical, contemporary music styles to build on and develop a broad base of musical interest my son has. He is able to tailor his teaching tools to fit in with my son's interests. This is no mean feat, especially when my son is only 8 years of age.

Thanks so much Jon!

I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Music and Piano Performance at The Juilliard School studying with legendary pedagogue and Chair of Piano Dr. Veda Kaplinsky. I've traveled the musical world and studied with several of the world's most sought after pianists, including 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 other concerts with orchestras in Europe, 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 with young students in order to nurture their artistic talents and unique musical sense. Students will be able to perceive piano not only as a skill and genuinely enjoyable activity, but also as the most sincere and effective form of emotional expression and as a friend with ...

About Max
Most recently, I was selected as one of eight pianists worldwide across all age divisions to attend The Verbier Festival's Artist Training Program in Switzerland, summer of 2018. I was the only American pianist to receive the honor this year.

I am currently a second-year undergraduate student at The Juilliard School in New York City, where I study with the Susan W. Rose Chair of Piano Department, Dr. Yoheved Kaplinsky and 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 over 15 years of musical experience off and on stage, playing at 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, and have performed at prestigious venues such as Benaroya Hall, Alice Tully @ Lincoln Center, the Kauffman Center, Foundation LV in Paris, and Carnegie Hall.

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.

Max is my favorite private teacher I have ever had since I started learning piano couple years ago. He is a very talented and positive person who has been encouraging me to play the way I am. He believes the best way to be good at playing piano is to enjoy it and trust yourself that going for what you feel like it is about in the piece. Recently, we had tight lessons to prepare my coming aidition for Brookly College’s music program. I really appriciated all the help and support from Max. He is always making sure that he covers the lesson that he wants to go over with that day. I just passed my audition two days ago and got into the program I wanted to. I can’t thank him enough for all the guidence from his class. Max is a very good instrutor that coaches his students to have more passion and belifs in the music field. I love the way he teaches and really appreciated my boyfriend who helped me found such a great teacher!

About Diana
Diana is a classical guitarist and pianist originally from Santa Fe, New Mexico. In addition to guitar and piano, she teaches voice, ukulele and songwriting in New York City, where she now resides. She spent the better part of a decade studying closely with two mentors: celebrated classical guitarist Lynn McGrath, and revered pianist Stephen Montoya. As a high school student, Diana regularly performed in recitals and participated in competitions and festivals across the U.S., including the Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) and The Parkening Guitar Competition, where she received masterclass instruction from distinguished guitarists like David Russell, Ana Vidovic and Christopher Parkening. She went on to study classical guitar at the North Carolina School for the Arts as the youngest student admitted in her focus at the age of 17, and la
ter completed her studies in music performance, composition, and foreign language at the University of New Mexico. In addition to her classical studies, Diana sang in a variety of traveling choral groups throughout high school and took small roles in the Broadway musicals ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ and ‘Rent’.

In the course of her studies, Diana was honored with awards of excellence from the National Honors Society of Guitar and recognized for her performances with the critically acclaimed woman’s guitar ensemble, ‘Presti Quartet.’ She was selected two years in a row to perform 1st chair in the New Mexico ALLSTATE Guitar Orchestra - the first-ever young woman to earn that position. The following year she was chosen as one of twelve guitarists to represent music in education in the United States.

In the time since her studies, Diana has called many places home. She lived in New Orleans for several years and in that time her music interests broadened to embrace traditional American forms, such as jazz and the blues. During that time she ran a private music practice, teaching children and young adults to become proficient with music. She continued her travels, her studies and her teachings during the summer of 2017 in Spain. She has been living, studying and teaching in New York City since the fall of 2017, always carrying with her the belief that music should never feel like a chore and that learning music should be curiosity-driven, active, enjoyable, and emphasize self-expression. Diana believes in building a strong foundation of musical knowledge with her students by providing the tools to create good habits from the beginning and encouraging effective, deliberate practice. It is her mission to inspire aspiring musicians as a music educator and bring a life-long love of music to her students.

I have taught beginner piano classes both to private students and as part of the public school curriculum in Orlando, FL. If you are looking to begin learning piano or if you are interested in signing a younger member of your family up for music lessons, I can help you out! No piano needed, either. I can travel with my keyboard so you don't have to put down money on an expensive, new instrument.

About Stephen
I am a classically trained saxophonist, bass vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist. I have experience arranging music of all styles for bands, orchestra, percussion ensembles, and a cappella groups. I was the saxophonist for The High Lifes, a ska-punk band out of Orlando, FL; played tenor and baritone saxophone in my university's wind ensemble, saxophone quartet, jazz band, and orchestra; have founded and led four a cappella groups at the collegiate and semi-professional levels; and am a bass section leader in the New York City Bar Choir. I have taught public school band, chorus, orchestra, piano, and music technology classes and was an elementary school music teacher in Orlando, FL before moving to New York in 2012.

My private saxophone students have gone on to study at the college level, have been members of the Florida All-State band, a
nd earned Superior ratings at state music festivals. I have also taught private flute, clarinet, and bassoon lessons.

In addition to music performance classes, I have experiencing teaching music theory and arranging. If you would like to learn about the magic behind music, I'm your guy!

If you're interested in ensemble lessons, we can negotiate group package discounts. I've found that music is best when shared and learning to perform quality musical literature with other, like-minded musicians is one of the most rewarding experiences in life.

Hi!
My name is Gity, I'm a professional composer with Bachelor and Master's degrees from The Juilliard School in composition.

I started playing the piano when I was 7 years old, and kept on performing piano until my career as a composer became very demanding. But I still teach piano because I love the instrument and I enjoy practicing!

When teaching piano, I tap into my knowledge and techniques I've developed as a professional, working musician over more than a decade not just as a pianist but also as a composer.

My teaching techniques makes the lessons for my students fun, interactive and comprehensive: you learn not just how to press the keys and read the notes (as one of my old piano teachers used to say,) but you learn about musicality, compositional backbone of a piece. You learn how to decipher the score and look for clues that would make understanding and interpreting a piece of music easy and fun.

lass is personalized to the skillset and interests of the student, with the primary goal of inspiring them to learn and love music, Daniel's classes are a rigorous and exciting time for student, teacher and parent alike.

Daniel is currently employed as a pianist at the Juilliard School, LaGuardia High School For The Performing Arts, with The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Company, The Martha Graham School Of Contemporary Dance, The Manhattan Youth Ballet and many more. He has taught a growing studio of piano students over his time in New York, as well as teaching for 'Music To Your Home', a major musical education company. He has taught theory, structure and the relationships between music and dance as a Guest Professor at The National University of Costa Rica, as well as in improvisation classes at The Ballet Hispanico School (NYC).
Daniel received extensive training and his Bachelor's Degree in Classical Piano Performance from The University Of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and at El Instituto Superior De Artes, Costa Rica. He has also been trained as an elite Dance Accompanist for over a decade under the mentorship of the best accompanists in New York City. His work as an accompanist has brought him to Barcelona (Spain), Athens (Greece), San Jose (Costa Rica), Chicago (Illinois), and put him in the employment of nearly every major school and dance company in New York City.

Daniel would love to bring his skills, experience and love of music to you and your family.

A hour lesson with Daniel might go something like this!

Technical Work: [10 minutes]

- Scales, posture and technique, and 'Dozen A Day, Daily Piano Lesson Exercises' as well as other method's of technical development created by Daniel to work on dynamic shading, arpeggios, and tone often function to start the lesson, engaging the student's focus and challenging their memory to 'bring up' what was achieved in the previous lesson.

Repertoire: [15 minutes]

-Pieces are chosen from the 'Bastien Piano Teaching Method' which are supplemented by Daniel's personal collection of pieces and based on the students skill level and interest.
In this section we interact with the full capacity of the student to read music, master rhythm and technical difficulties, add increasingly subtle detail, achieve consistency and focus and all with the intention of eventually performing the work. Along the way we instill the knowledge and skills necessary to perform before an audience, often creating mock-performance environments.

Additional repertoire: [15 minutes]

- Students often learn and play Duet Repertoire with Daniel, engaging in the experience of Chamber musician creation and learning the importance of collaboration and listening.
- Students interested in pop and jazz begin work on aural skills or 'Ear Training', learning pieces by way of listening to them and then creating piano arrangements from the transcriptions they craft with Daniel's help. These arrangements become pieces in the student's repertoire.

Music Theory: [10 minutes]

- Theory: Students are taught early on to read 'key signatures' and 'time signatures' in tandem with the development of their scale work and their repertoire. Students learn the significance of the ordering of the scales, the intervals (distance between notes) which define them and multiple ways to deconstruct and define a scale and its parts, thereby allowing students to continue learning on their own, as well as developing the terminology to communicate with other musicians.
Theory gradually increases in complexity based on the student’s interest and skill level, to encompass every facet of chord making, harmony relationships and Roman Numeral Analysis.

- Vocab Word: Students receive a 'Vocab Word' every lesson. This word is a musical term, which will help the student to accurately communicate with Daniel and other musicians as well as more deeply understand the musical language.
- Flash Cards: Students also receive and develop a 'flash-card library'. This is a note-learning game which students play in each lesson with the goal of 'beating last weeks time' using increasing skills in sheet-music reading. As the student learns more notes and achieves faster times, the 'flash card library' grows and the challenge increases.

Improvisation: [5 minutes]

- Every lesson Daniel and the student improvise at least one piece of music. The student is guided over a period of weeks to internalize the concept of improvisation, eventually freeing them to the infinite and inspiring possibilities inherent in the practice of 'Improv'. Improvisations use and thereby reinforce the scales learned at the beginning of each lesson and demonstrate the importance of listening, collaboration, imagination and harmony.

The Color Game: [5 minutes]

- This is a game played at the end of each lesson in which Daniel and the student take turns striking a 'triad' (a chord with three notes). With eyes closed, the two participants begin to 'listen closely' to the chord as it is then restruck and eventually attempt to 'hear a color'. Students may also 'hear' shapes, textures, and scenes, which Daniel and the student then share with each other to great fascination and amusement, revealing similarities of interpretation and most importantly, opening the students mind to a new and magical understanding of sound.
This game, related to the psychological phenomenon of synesthesia, engages the students imagination, self-confidence and concludes each lesson is a fun, inspiring and exciting way.

Piano Notebook:

- All of Daniel's students keep a 'piano notebook', in which they receive a practice plan at the close of each lesson. The practice plan outlines the goals and methods of practice for the coming week, as well as containing advice from and a synopsis of that day's lesson. The notebook further serves as a workbook and a reference used throughout the learning process.

Sincerely,
Daniel Hyde
