Maya has been my violin and piano teacher for about 7 years. She’s very patient and fun to work with, but sometimes strict for what I work on. We have to prepare for the annual students recital she has in the spring, but i feel I’ve learned a lot from her. She’s my favorite teacher!

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I am an undergraduate student at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor studying piano performance and philosophy, with a strong interest in piano pedagogy of all levels. In pursuing these two degrees, I believe in a well-rounded musical education that includes story-telling, connecting music to relevant history and literature, and developing an emotive connection to music beyond just the technical in ways that are fun and engaging, especially in the beginning stages of learning.

That being said, I also emphasize the importance of having a solid foundation that allows for the capability to progress further. With teaching technique to beginners, I focus on fun exercises and activities that are easy for both the students and parents to understand and practice at home. Additionally, I believe that music theory is an essential building block to understanding how to read music effectively, so I begin every lesson with a short music theory lesson on basic harmony exercises that teach ...

Private Classical Piano Teacher

Classical music is the foundation for everything else!

I have been teaching piano for over 40 years, full-time for the past 15. Besides the actual repertoire, technique and theory are always included in my lessons because they are essential. Sight reading and ear training are also included in some lessons.

I stress accuracy in playing and attention to details! I also teach my students HOW to practice. Slow, accurate practice is the answer. Practicing takes patience!

Please note: Home lessons must be at a location that I can get to easily with public transportation. I do not have a car.

About Emil

I started to study the piano at the age of seven with Hrant Minassian in my hometown of Island Park, New York. During high school I continued my studies with Jack Chaikin , a graduate of the Juilliard School. I attended Hofstra University where I received a B.A. in Music in 1979. At Hofstra, my pia

Chuck
I took up the piano as an adult, without having had any experience in it as a child (though I played guitar through college). I tried a few instructors prior to discovering Emil, with whom I have been studying now for over 2 years.

Emil is a wonderful teacher. He is far and away the most accomplished piano player I have studied with, and his knowledge of, and facility for, playing really comes through in his instruction. He is always bringing formal instruction back to the act of performance, and how to make whatever piece you are working on, even the simplest, sound the best that it can be.

Emil isn't afraid to share his own struggles with whatever piece he is currently working on, and pointing out that he faces the same challenges that every practicing player faces.

Emil is personable, knowledgeable, and kind. I can't recommend him highly enough as an instructor.
Travis
A wonderfully skilled teacher with decades of experience, Emil will certainly help take your playing to the next level.
Celia
Emil is very easy to work with and is a fun and inspired teacher. My daughter loves taking lessons from him.

I have been teaching both voice and beginner to intermediate piano to all ages for five years throughout the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens.

I've been working with Linda for the past few months and she has already helped me to improve my falsetto and my head voice so much! Before I started with her, my throat would hurt after singing for just a few minutes, but with the healthy techniques she taught me, I sing through our entire lesson without any pain. I've been singing for years, but Linda truly is transforming my voice and I'm very excited to keep working with her. Plus, she's very patient and encouraging, even through the challenges of online-lessons. 10/10 would recommend.

After years of putting off voice lessons for this reason or that, Linda has been the most amazing teacher and I'm so glad I finally decided to go for it. Online lessons have been incredibly convenient, and I've learned more than I could have ever expected since beginning several months ago. She is both knowledgable and encouraging, and I look forward to every lesson. I highly recommend choosing Linda as your voice instructor!

Online Classical Piano Teacher

I started playing piano at age seven when my mother enrolled me in lessons. I have been playing ever since, and I absolutely love it. I began teaching private piano lessons in 2003, and have taught many thousands of lessons since that time. I have experience accompanying choirs, instrumentalists, and vocalists, as well as playing as a soloist in various piano competitions and recitals.

In my piano lessons I use the Faber's fabulous Piano Adventures series. In my opinion, they are the best books on the market, emphasizing reading by intervals as opposed to memorizing note names. This method minimizes student frustration while also decreasing the amount of time it takes a student to read a new song. Piano Adventures also focuses on developing sight reading and ear training skills, something most developing musicians don't study until college-level music courses.

I prefer to introduce students to the great composers as early as possible, starting with short etudes and then ...
