The student must be self-motivated and consistent about his lessons by, self-motivated, I mean, that if it's a child, he should be learning because he wants to learn (not his parents,etc.} There is no one answer to this question (what can students expect from my lessons) because that would depend on the students interests.

studied clasical. pop. rock, classic rock, jazz and improvisation. If, for example, the student is an adult who is taking lessons because it's something he wanted to do all of his life, he'll pick a song that he likes and we can start working on it right away. If necessary, I'll transpose it to an easier key, but he won't leave my studio without knowing exactly what he needs to practice until his next lesson. I tell students (especially parents) not to push practicing. If the student isn't practicing at home, he has lost motivation. He can stop and come back when he wants to learn. I consider it m job to keep the student motivated by suppling what they ...

About Roseann

I have been teaching piano for almost 40 years. I have a NY state music teachers license, a masters in music therapy from NYU, and a bachelors in Music Education and AFFA certification. I try to keep the student self-motivated by using music that the student likes, as well as covering the basics.

Skillful and professional instructor.

Roseann has a very pleasant personality and makes learning the guitar enjoyable and exciting for my six year old daughter. She gives clear and concise instructions that my daughter can understand and follow on her own while practicing at home. I would highly recommend Roesann to anyone interested in learning the guitar.

For my beginning students I help get them acquainted with the piano and the music that they would like to study.
For my more advanced students I focus primarily on improvisational concepts and playing in group settings.
As with all of my students I have a strong emphasis on developing their ears and follow a sound-before-symbol approach.

About Isaac

As I’ve developed my teaching style over the last ten years, I’ve found myself zeroing in on a few key qualities I want to cultivate in my students and in my self. These include great ears, a high proficiency on the instrument, and a strong and interactive sense of musicality. At the center of my p

Isaac knows his stuff. He has been great in teaching music theory and piano. Easy to get in contact with and flexible in scheduling.
Greg A.
Isaac is an excellent teacher and is highly recommended. His method is not centered on drills, music reading or repetition, but rather on getting an understanding of how the notes, chords work together. In so doing, the student gets a great understanding of theory and it opens the door to improvisation. In addition he's very patient with folks such as myself who don't come to class with a deep understanding of music theory.
Victoria Danberg
I have just begun lessons with Isaac. He is an excellent teacher; attuned to my needs, very good at explaining things, patient, very good at getting me to understand what I need to know. I look forward to learning upright bass with him!

As I said in my profile, I play all styles and so I teach all styles. This is an important point as many teachers only teach classical and if you want to learn a song by Sam Smith, the Beatles or perhaps something from "Frozen", they'll say 'buy the sheet music'. I teach music theory (after the fundamentals of music are learned) and if the student desires, he or she can learn how to improvise. This does not mean jazz necessarily, but learning to elaborate on a dull sheet music arrangement.

I live in a private community in Clifton. N.J. David has performed for us on occasion at our clubhouse. I would consider him a master at the piano . He played a variety of music for us and it was received and enjoyed by all. He has a wonderful personality and patience as well which combined would make a wonderful teacher.
Roxanna H.
Our girls really enjoy their lessons with Mr. David. He is very patient and encouraging. They always come back very happy and excited to go for more lessons. You will not regret. He is really one of the best. My oldest one who has been with two other teachers before and can play well, says she is finally understanding some concepts that she had trouble with in the past. She is finally getting it with Mr. David. Our youngest one is progressing so fast....today was only their third lesson. So happy to have found him...and yes, we went by the reviews..all were so true about him. Thank you, Mr. David.

Real nice guy and talented. He takes the time to see what I know and what I want to learn. Great suggestions and I feel like I can grow as a musician with him

Piano has been my longest love affair. I play and teach all styles from Classical to traditional Irish accompaniment. I teach basic to advanced theory and performance skills depending on the student's desires. I have a BM in piano performance, so I'm extremely comfortable performing and teaching on piano. I'd love to help you discover your own individual piano style and find what music you love to play. If you want to learn to write music on piano, I can help you there too!

"we spent most of the lesson getting to know each other and our musical background/interests and discussed my goals for taking lessons. loretta is a kind soul and with a very knowledgable music mind. she is an incredible match for my wants and needs.

if you have interest in writing your own music or find your passion for learning an instrument is more about learning a new language of expression loretta would be a perfect instructor for you. i took lessons as a child and for me the experience was dull and created a distance between me and the instrument that lasted for almost two decades. so far my experience with loretta has been the polar opposite of what learning a child was for me. this is exactly what i was looking for.

thank you loretta!"
