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

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.

Emil is very easy to work with and is a fun and inspired teacher. My daughter loves taking lessons from him.

We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!
Ashna S.
Very knowledgeable. My daughter enjoy learning from him.
Isabel Z.
So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

My background in classical, jazz, pop, songwriting, composing, and arranging all make me an extremely versatile piano teacher. I teach using a personal method which combines parts of all the most popular methods for piano to create an extremely varied and flexible method for each individual student. Using my experience as a composer/arranger, I frequently create arrangements for students when they express a desire to learn specific music, as I skillfully appropriate arrangements for each students' skill level.

Students will not only learn how to play the piano, but how to express themselves with it, as I keep creativity a high priority in students' progress and encourage improvisation. Students will also be introduced to basic music theory which will help them grow even further in their musical development and stimulate creativity. Many of my students have gone on to win awards, study piano at places such as Berklee College of Music, learned how to improvise, and even composed ...

"Very experienced and patient teacher with the all rounded class structure - beginning with scale and finger exercise, then come to the pieces that’s including playing styles, techniques etc. Finally she will touch the theory little by little each lesson. Also I appreciate that she always encourages the students’ passion for music instead of just making them to practice hard."
