Jennifer is great with my high-energy seven-year-old. She's very patient and she is able to make him engage. She also takes the skills he's learned in his music class in school, and builds his skills lessons around his abilities. Finally, she gives homework in a notebook that is clear and measurable, so he knows exactly what to do on his own throughout the week.

Hi! Welcome to my TakeLessons page, where I provide information about my background and teaching services.

I am an experienced performing artist and teacher that works in New York and regionally. My piano and voice students include children, working professionals, performing artists, and seniors. I attended Barnard College, Columbia University, and Maggie Flanigan's acting conservatory program. My training at Columbia University and with private instructors focused on classical repertoire and theory, but I also work with students on popular music (i.e.Pop, R&B, Electronica, and Folk). Music theory (i.e. sight reading, chord progressions) and practices from Linklater, Alexander, Williamson movement, and Art of Practicing techniques are incorporated into my music instruction.

30 minute-lessons are available for children aged 5-6 only while 60-minute lessons are available for students above the age of 6. Prospective students may sign up to take a trial lesson with me at first to ...

Nikole, is very warm and professional. I have never continued with voice lessons, I enjoyed the experience so much that I'm going to kick the bad habit of smoking and sit down and seriously figure my finances out to continue being taught by her. I cannot express enough how much fun I had...no pressure Nikole if you read this...lol

I am a current Juilliard undergraduate with experience formally teaching beginner- intermediate level students. I welcome students of all levels who are interested in advancing their knowledge and ability to become pianistically proficient. For all my students, I emphasize the importance of practicing efficiently while developing critical listening skills. Although practicing might usually seem laborious, I strive to help students seek the enjoyment out of the music that they want to play.

Even though I am a novice, she taught me from reading notes to how to appreciate music by explaining very well. But I had to do what I had to do, HW and practice!!!

I will strongly recommend her to anyone.

Honestly, Gina was a strict teacher and great teacher at the same time. I had to practice a lot, but it was really rewarding experience. She is very patient and guided me to understand how profound classical piano is. My playing technique improved significantly.

I would strongly recommend Gina to anyone who wants to improve!

When you take piano lessons with me, we'll cover music theory to piano exercises designed to build strength and coordination. We’ll play a wide range of pieces from beautiful classical pieces to your favorite pop music. We’ll break the music down and figure out how it was composed and why it works. And we’ll work together to help develop your sense of rhythm, melody, and harmony so that you can sit down and truly express yourself in impromptu jam, join a band, or write a hit song.

Kris is an outstanding piano teacher!

His classes are fun and tailored to my learning goals.

I honestly feel like I get a lot more value from his online classes than I wouldve with a teacher during an in-home class.

With his classes on Zoom, you can see how he’s playing a piece on the piano as well as the music sheet simultaneously. You can also read the name of chords / notes he’s playing in real time with a software program he uses. In addition, he allows me to record the lesson so I can replay the lesson again to review anything I missed!

He’s been an amazing teacher. I really feel like I’ve accelerated my learning with his help!

Been taking lessons with Kris online for the last two months - he's very flexible, knowledgable, and an excellent techer!

"I have had the privilege of performing with John this past year. He is an outstanding musician who continues to search for artistic moments within a piece. John is without a doubt the best pianist I've ever performed with. As a teacher, John is patient and encouraging. He works well with many different ages and talent levels.

As a composer, John is equally as talented. I had the honor of recording the solo parts to some of his original compositions. They are creative, catchy, and appropriately written for each instrument. He has a firm grasp on what it takes to be an extraordinary composer.

Book lessons with John today. You'll be glad you did!"

A New Approach to Piano Lessons in New York City

By Glen F. - NYC Piano Teacher

I have always loved music and playing the piano, and I have achieved lots of success performing music in all styles, culminating with a degree in piano performance from the Manhattan School of Music. I was capable of playing practically anything I wanted, but there was something deeper and more meaningful I wanted to go after. I wanted to achieve more physical freedom, more brilliance in my sound, and a conscious approach to music that focused on solving technical and expressive problems directly. I found that with an approach called The Art of Practicing, which is based on the teachings of Madeline Bruser, author of the book with the same title.

While studying with Ms. Bruser, she introduced me to very basic, but far-reaching concepts such as sitting still yet allowing the arms to just be free to move as they please. Instead of being hunched over and tense, I instantly freed my body to create the brilliant sound I wanted. Further on, she introduced me to other techniques such as moving the wrist forward in certain places to evenly and freely distribute energy, and singing techniques to hear my ideas and arrive at whatever phrasing I wanted to get at the piano. The best thing was that it worked! And I can pass these teachings on to all of you when you take piano lessons in New York City, as even beginners are capable of playing the piano in this simple, yet very effective and beautiful way. If you are ready to begin your musical journey, sign up with a local piano instructor today!
