Trained at perfect pitch course at YAMAHA institute in Japan. Many competition experiences. A winner of Electric Piano Competition at YAMAHA Electric Piano Festival.
I started my musical training as a pianist at YAMAHA institute at age 4 in Japan. I was selected to enter perfect pitch class. It was designated for students who have perfect pitch and potentials to be professional musicians.
I enjoyed playing piano and electric piano and won the 1st prize at Kitakantou Electric Piano Competition hosted by YAMAHA institute. Because of the intensive training, I have been accompanying my students' recitals and performance exams.
As much as I enjoyed playing piano, I discovered that I also love singing, so I started to take singing lessons and majored in vocal performance during my college days.
Since I have graduated, I have been performing opera professionally. My career highlights include roles as Cio-cio san(Madame Butterfly) with Snob Opera, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Fairy(Falstaff) with Sir B
ryn Terfel with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Liverpool, England, Dorinda(Orlando) with Cantanti Project, Pamina (Die Zauberflöte) with Opera Manhattan Studio, Frasquita (Carmen) with One World Symphony, Zerlina (Don Giovanni) and Clorinda (La Cenerentola) with Capitol Heights Opera, Alice (Le comte Ory) with West Side Opera Society, Adele (Die Fledermaus), Susanna (Le Nozze di Figaro), and Myrrhine (Lysistrata) with Opera Avanti, Gilda (Rigoletto) with Académie Internationale d'Eté de Nice, and The First Spirit (Die Zauberflöte) with the Opera Company of Brooklyn.
My international credits include performances under the direction of Conductor Laurent Pillot at the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Liverpool, England;the Académie Internationale d'Eté de Nice, France; the Daniel Ferro Vocal Program in Chianti,Italy; the International Vocal Arts Institute in Tel Aviv, Israel where I was selected to sing for the Japanese Ambassador.
I made appearances as a soloist at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, Town Hall, and MOMA museum in New York City and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. As a versatile singer, I was presented as an aspiring opera singer on the website of Maybelline New York. Her voice was featured in short films for the Japanese technology company NEC. I appeared as a soprano soloist for the opera, Jazz and theater collaboration of "TAKE ABITE" by David Antonio Cruz. I also sings Broadway songs and continues her musical theater studies. She is an active recitalist and also performs Oratorio works.
I was also a finalist at the Opera Idol Competition at Lincoln Center in New York City, The Hariclea Darclée Voice Competition in Romania and the Mario Lanza and Elaine Malbin Vocal Competition in New York City. Ms. Uchida was selected as a vocal scholarship recipient at Savannah music festival.
Her upcoming engagements in 2019 include performing concerts with Philharmonie Teplice, Neubrandenburg, Germany, the title role of Lucia di Lammermoore and a lieder recital with Opera After Hours, New York. Ms. Uchida gave a recital hosted by Russian Cultural Center in Kiev 2019. Asuka is invited to give a recital at Festival dell’arte in Wojanow, Poland in August 2019.
Besides being an opera singer, I have been teaching piano and voice for 11 years. I would like to share my skills and experience with you. Since I perform often, I can coach you how to perform on stage in addition to building solid technique and languages. Also, I have taught various kinds of music, such as Rock, Broadway musicals, Pop music, so we can work on all kind of music.
I look forward to teaching you soon!
*** Lesson Details *** My students can expect to improve their skills and start to enjoy music more as we work together. I believe that learning music is fun and enjoyable. However you also need to be serious and focused. I can demonstrate various and specific techniques, phrasing, and interpretation and will always coach on how to develop your skills. However, I feel it is important for students to think critically on their own and take the first try at solving a problem themselves. I cannot emphasize enough that primarily it is you who find the ways to improve. Leaning music is a collaboration between teachers and students. I hope that through my lessons, students will become more self-sufficient and confident as musicians. Let me help you become a better musician.
*** Studio Equipment *** Piano (Clavinova), music stand, and desk.
*** Travel Equipment *** By Subway, the closest station is 23rd street. You can take C, E train(within one block). 1 train(one block), M, F train (2 blocks).
Asuka, was wonderful. I've been looking forward to learning Japanese for a long time. She is very detailed and patient. Excellent teacher!

On behalf of my son who is 15. Before finding Asuka, Lukas had taken voice lessons from several very good teachers (between breaks we would experiment with teachers).
Now with Asuka he feels most comfortable and feels he learns more per lesson with Asuka. More progress with all aspects of voice. She helps prepare for auditions with Broadway vocals and advance on the more serious and challenging Opera selections.
So the actual lessons are great and Asuka is also a charm; engaging and personable. As the parent I very much like she remains a professional singer as her career.
So we are staying with Asuka through the breaks and may even extend into piano lessons as well.
I would recommend Asuka without hesitation.
I have studied the piano for fifteen years. I have studied and taught in multiple styles as well. In my lessons, I would teach the basics of playing the piano, reading and understanding sheet music, and the fundamentals of music theory. We can cover classical piano styles along with jazz or rock and roll.
My teaching philosophy is that a teacher is just the guide. They must ensure that the student reaches their destination of their own accord and desires.
Hello! My name is Gillian and I recently graduated from the Crane School of Music with a degree in Music Business and Piano. I have studied piano classically for fifteen years, as well as the cello, banjo, mandolin, guitar, ukulele, and drums. I also study jazz, folk, rock, and play and sing in a band.
I have taught piano, cello, and banjo to students of all ages. I also have studied music theory for fifteen years. Please contact me and we can schedule a lesson!
Ultimately, my ideal goal is to make my students love music. Music is a great way of communicating emotions; it will make their lives more fruitful. In order to achieve that, they will have my guidance for comfortable and healthy piano technique.

Second-Prize winner of the 2017 New York International Artists Association Piano Competition, Hong Kong native Brian Lam was hailed by Sergei Babayan as “a very fine young pianist whose talents cannot be taught by others”. He won the First Prize at the 2014 Brooklyn College Concerto Competition, which led to a performance of Chopin’s e minor concerto with the school’s symphony under the baton of George Rothman, music director of the Riverside Symphony in New York. Two years later, in 2016, he won the First Prize at the American Proteges International Concerto Competition. Other achievements include a Gold Medal at the Young Classical Virtuoso International Piano Competition. Brian was also a finalist at the First VIVO-S International Music Competition in 2017.
Brian has appeared in greatly-acclaimed music festivals such as
the International Keyboard Institute and Festival in 2011 (full scholarship) & the Hudson PianoFest at Nyack College of Music in 2015. He has also played at Steinway Halls in London & New York, Weill Recital and Zankel Halls at Carnegie Hall, Merkin Concert Hall at the Kaufmann Music Center and Kimmel Center in Philadelphia.
Brian holds B.M. and M.M. degrees in Piano Performance (summa cum laude) from Brooklyn College. His principal mentors are Adam Kent and William Wolfram.
The reason I came to Mr. Brian: I wasn't making any progress under my previous teacher at a local music school. I'd say I absolutely have made the right decision to study with him! At first, my parents thought Mr. Brian's piano lessons are a bit expensive, but they let me try out the first few lessons. Worth the price! I have stayed with him for almost 4 years. He is so passionate with piano and he always tries to push me to my fullest potential, even when certain pieces seem impossible for me to tackle. We are working on a 45 min college audition program; I have never imagined I could make it this far (I hated piano when I was a kid).

Mr. Brian has prepped me well for performances. I have learned a lot from him. He is very passionate about music and he really taught me how to express myself through piano playing. I am a very shy person and have stage fright. My parents think I have advanced a lot under Brian's tutelage. I highly recommend him. A great friend, mentor and an amazing pianist!
May 13, 2018
He had been my piano teacher and mentor for 5+years. Equipped with marvelous knowledge and meticulousness on music and piano performance, he is capable and willing to uphold his professionalism. He is not going to move on until you have mastered certain fundamental musical ideations or techniques. Mr. Brian is not the type of teacher who only talks in theory or with instructions, but he can actually perform what he demands from students. Hence, he is doubtlessly a marvelous piano performer, as well as instructor, where I am certain students can learn a lot from his lessons.
Students will learn to read music, proper piano fingering, scales, and will gradually begin playing simple favorites.

One of the most talented teachers and singers I've ever worked with! Kayla is so knowledgeable in every aspect of singing: technique, interpretation, or fiction! She's helped me prepare for roles and work on my repertoire multiple times, always making me feel so much better afterwards! You could not pick a better or nicer teacher!

Every student is different which is why I love to build a custom curriculum for each musician in my studio! Not only will we get you playing your favorite songs or repertoire in any genre, but we can also build strong skills in musicianship in any areas that appeal to you including ear training, solfege, music theory, sight reading, accompaniment skills, composition/songwriting, arranging and orchestration, and foundations of conducting.
I specialize in working with students age 12 through adulthood; beginners through college preparatory and advanced students welcome!
I'm a Brooklyn-based composer, conductor, arts administrator and general wearer of many hats, but I will always consider myself a teacher first! My approach to education is student-centric, goal-oriented, and practical. Every student regardless of their background or identity deserves equitable access to a quality music education that reflects their interests and aspirations.
I provide lessons and tutoring in a wide variety of music including piano, ear training, music theory, sight singing, composition/songwriting, arranging and orchestrating, diction, foundations of conducting, and love to mix and match these with each student, providing a practical working knowledge of these skills across any desired genre.
My current engagements include active work as a composer, conductor, and clinician with both professional musicians and in s
chools, as well as singing in multiple choral groups throughout New York City. I also am a staff member at the League of American Orchestras, supporting our work in the areas of knowledge resources, learning, and leadership. Outside of my regular schedule, I work as a consultant to several socially-oriented music groups including the Refugee Orchestra Project and Voices 21c, both located in Boston, MA.
I hold a Master of Music degree in Music Composition with a minor in Choral Conducting from the New England Conservatory as well as a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from the University of Massachusetts Lowell.
I've had Derek as a conductor for a small string ensemble for about 5 years and he's truly the best anyone can ask for! He's great with young students and is amazing at motivating and explaining exactly what he wants out of musicians. His love and knowledge for music is extremely evident and that in turn encourages his students to strive to greater heights in musicianship.
I have been taught classical piano private lesson and piano class at school for several years since college. I am teaching piano lesson for my Doctor of Musical Arts Degree at the Rutgers University. I have more than 10 students in Manhattan area.
I have rich teaching experience with all ages of students. I love to communicate with students or parents to understand what is their learning goal from my lessons. I always love to organize 1 or 2 annual studio piano concerts for my students to present their music in front of audience.

Piano playing transcends age limitations. Some people start with piano lessons shortly after learning to walk and talk, while others begin learning later in life. If you've decided that learning to play the piano is something you're interested in as an adult, there are few things to keep in mind when considering adult piano lessons - one of them being finding the right teacher for you.
