As a composer, he has composed music for Trios, Quartets, Quintets, Sextets, Orchestras of various instrument permutations, Choirs, and also

I have always wanted to play the guitar but felt too intimidated. A friend told me about TakeLessons and I chose Marcin because he seemed to have a lot of different experiences with music.

Marcin was extremely professional and nice and made me feel at ease. He made it easy to ask questions and explained things really well for me. I took five lessons with him (I've been traveling and haven't been back yet) and was able to play a few songs. What I really like was Marcin's enthusiasm, which, for me, is really encouraging. He was interested in my goals and kept them in mind with each lessons. I could tell that he was preparing each lesson just for me and based on my progress and I felt that I could be honest with what I was doing. Totally recommend Marcin for lesson!

Marchin has prepared a lot to satisfy my goal and he teaches me how to practice independently in the future. So, I can keep improving my guitar skills myself without the lesson.
More over, his lesson is pretty casual and funny. I feel comfortable with it.

All in all. For me, as a starter. He's a good guitar teacher.

It was truly a pleasure meeting Concetta for my first ever violin lesson. It is difficult to learn anything at the age 40, specially a musical instrument, but she made it comfortable and easy to understand. She's extremely patient a key quality when teaching a subject such a music to anyone. I would say, give her teaching style a try and you won't regret it. Very knowledgeable indeed.

Very patient and beyond knowledgeable! I haven't done anything with TakeLessons before and my online class was hosted via skype so it was easy to get connected and learn at my own pace. I like that my lessons will be tailored to my style and my level of musical understanding. She has excellent follow-up for after the lessons as well. I'm excited to be a student again :)

I've been playing the piano since I was six, and I've been teaching for over ten years. I tailor my curriculum to fit your interests and abilities. Although I play many different styles and genres, classical piano is my favorite subject to teach! Your true teachers will be Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven, Rachmaninoff and more. I love searching through the classical repertoire to find the perfect pieces for every skill level. Here are some sample topics we will cover:

--healthy and effortless technique
--fluency in music reading
--knowledge of classical repertoire
--memorization/performance skills
--basic scales/chords/arpeggios
--basic musicianship (including ear training, expression, style, performance, etc.)

About Joseph
My name is Joseph P. I began playing the piano and writing music at a very young age. I've been teaching for over ten years, and I love sharing music with my students. I specialize in piano, composition, and music theory, and I play many genres ranging from classical to R&B.

I'm currently pursuing a PhD in Music Composition at The Graduate Center, CUNY, and I have taught undergraduate courses at Queens College, CUNY.

· Accompaniment · In studio
Working with Joseph was a delight! He provided his services as an accompanist for a Christmas music video I was recording.

He was always punctual when arriving to rehearsals, scheduling rehearsals was a breeze, even with our packed schedules, and he was always prepared for each rehearsal with copies of the music I'd provided, as well as notes he'd gained by working through the music prior to the rehearsal.

He had a pleasant demeanor, and plenty of creative ideas for any places in the song that allowed for improvisation or personalization of the chords or phrasing. His accompaniment was the perfect companion to my singing, and could range many genres of music.

I also worked with him as the pianist in larger bands performing in the NYC area, and there as well, he was great to work with. Highly recommended! :)

I generally teach with a long-term focus in mind. Want to learn how to play that piece that seems impossible to you now? I can show you how to get there. I'm happiest when I get a chance to open the flood gates on all the knowledge I've accumulated about the pieces I love, and that's also when you'll be getting the most out of me as a teacher.

About Erik E.
Basically, I'm very good at what I do. If you want someone who's a fountain of information, who can give you hours of background and detail on a Chopin piece or the like, and knows what it takes to get to the point where you can pretty much play anything, I'm your guy. If you want someone to teach your daughter Mary Had A Little Lamb, I can do that too, and that's often where it all starts!

I've been teaching for 12 years and have had well over 150 different students in that time: Kids, retirees, beginner to advanced.

All students will learn the fundamentals of the following:

technique
note reading
ear training
music theory

You will be playing your first song by the first lesson!

My goal is to provide a new experience for younger students learning to play that will encourage them to not give up!

I appreciate all styles of music and work primarily in pop music. As a classically trained pianist with a unique perspective on music, I hope to give students an opportunity to explore different genres while also creating a strong foundation of clas

Whether you want to learn how to play the piano, reinforce your performance skills, theory skills, learn a different style or a better practice method, I can definitively help! I have been teaching piano for 15 years to students of an age range between 4 and 70. I'm very experienced in preparing them for NYSSMA and ABRSM exams, and perceiving what each one needs to succeed as great performers!I hold an MA in Classical Piano from CUNY, and a BA in Music from my native country, Panama. I have won scholarships from the International Keyboard Festival at The Mannes School, and The Performing Arts Fellowship at International House, New York.

About Marianela
I came to New York to accomplish a long-standing ambition: To become a professional pianist and a complete musician working as a teacher and a performer. Now that I have accomplished my goals, I would like to share my knowledge with my students and make them feel the music as deeply as I feel it!

My teaching philosophy is to provide a comprehensive music instruction that is not only about notes and rhythm, but also about connecting performance with theory, technique, collaboration, self-reflection and creativity from an early age. One of the key elements to reinforce the work that I do with my students is to help them notice the possibilities within a piece, which is when the student determines what the piece is “telling them”, what it “looks like”, how could it be improved, and what other instruments they are “hearing.”

My work experie
nce includes fifteen years as a piano soloist, accompanist, and instructor. I teach in group and individual settings in Spanish and English to ages 3 – adult and organize classical and contemporary repertory to teach and present in concerts. In my present position I use improvisation exercises to teach students music concepts such as rhythm and dynamics, and graphic and listening aids to teach about orchestral instruments. I share with parents their children’s progress and also offer advice that can help my students when they practice.

Contact me and let's have a conversation about your goals and what you need to accomplish them. Thank you!

I’m a graduate from both Mannes School of Music and Parsons School for Design, Piano Performance and Fashion Design major. I have performed all over the world in different cities concert halls, such as “Carnegie Hall”, “Palais Miller von Aichholz, Vienna, Austria”, Internatipnal Academy at Castelnuovo di Garfagnana in Italy, Sichuan Convervaroty of Music in China, and my own artistic organization in New York which is gathering more than 100 members and 50 experiences top musician in NYC who are graduates from Juilliard, Manhattan and Mannes School of Music in multiple majors, as well as illustrators, fashion designers, photographers and other young artists and audiences.

I can provide my students the best opportunities to perform monthly in front of other professional musicians and artists, get the most useful inspirations on not only the music performance, but also the musical comprehension and imaginations.

About Jinglin
I'm a graduate from both the Mannes College for Music in Piano Performance, and Parsons School for Design for Fashion Design.

Other than the various awards I have won, I am the founder of a popular music & artistic organization in New York City, which aims to provide top young musicians and artists from top music schools, such as Juiliard, Manhattan and Mannes, to share ideas with each other and to inspire audiences to play / show something as well.

I myself as an active pianist, has performed all over the world -
Carnegie Hall in New York City, Palais Miller von Aichholz in Vienna, Concerts in Dresden and Berlin, International Academy of Music in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana in Italy, a Second Class Award from the 16th Hong Kong - Asian Piano Competition in China and so forth.

As a passionate artist, I do not limit my imaginat
ion and creativity as there are unlimited types of languages, formats of art, ways of self-expressions and no one speaks exactly the same to another. For instance, Schoenberg designed his playing cards in private and I went to Parsons and designed my fashion garments on the back of Mannes, eventually I got both my piano concert and my fashion show done together - they were soon exposed by editors from more than ten mainstream medias in China.

As a reliable piano educator, I would teach not only the piano playing techniques and music theory, but also encourages my students to explore their imaginations and self expressions. I am the teacher you should probably expect to bring you / your child to various piano concerts and competitions, but probably not to the level examinations. My goal in education is to inspire students to keep the classical music playing, to be a creative artist and a unique treasure in the world.

Teaching style: Strict, patient, effective and could be a little fun.
Topics: Basic Music Theory, Piano playing techniques and performing tips; Music analysis and "language translations”; a little about life.
