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!

Hi, I'm Stephen.

I'm a vocal trainer, private/on-set acting coach, consultant, and songwriting teacher. My specialty is pop/rock, broadway, on camera, live presentations/sales, and helping songwriters find their voice, both lyrically and sonically.

Tap Into Your Artistry (TIYA) is the ultimate gym for singing, acting, and songwriting. Check out tapintoyourartistry.com

Discover the fastest and most efficient way to build, strengthen, and condition your voice. Simple, safe, systematic vocal exercises that embrace a Zen like approach with an athletic mentality.

I'm also an AEA and SAG-AFTRA actor and ASCAP songwriter and producer. If you want to learn more about audi
tioning, acting in movies, performing musicals/plays on Broadway, writing your own songs, and developing show-biz career strategy, (headshots, meeting agents/managers, etc) I help TIYA members every day achieve their artistic dreams.

MORE INFO:
I have been singing since I was 3, anything and everything from Michael Jackson to Elvis Presley to Luciano Pavarotti. Originally from Colorado, I studied music/theatre, as well as vocal pedagogy at The University of Colorado at Boulder, where I graduated with highest honors. I made my Broadway debut in "The Phantom of the Opera" at age 24. I also performed in "Chess in concert" as a featured rock tenor soloist at the New Amsterdam Theatre on Broadway with Josh Groban. I have understudied and performed lead roles in the first AEA National Tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s "Whistle Down the Wind." Regionally, I have played many lead roles all over the United States in productions including "Les Miserables," "Miss Saigon," "The Wild Party," and "She Loves Me."

I have recently released a singing online course. Feel free to check out Udemy and look for Sing Like You've Always Imagined to see what is new!

As an ASCAP recording artist, currently I am working in the studio with a full production team on my first pop/rock album. I also often sing on demos for producers and write songs for other artists in many different genres.

As a TV/Film actor, most recently I was on set with Marvel's "Luke Cage" on Netflix, and I played the lead role of (Abraham) Lincoln in the SAG-AFTRA short film, "These Honored Dead." I also have played lead roles in 4 SAG-AFTRA short films, as well as the comedic lead in a SAG-AFTRA Web-series pilot, "Bodega Nights." I was called back for producers as a Series Regular for both Cinemax and HBO.

TIYA clients include (aspiring) Broadway performers, Film and TV actors, singer-songwriters, voice-over artists, news anchors, dancers, comedians, corporate sales presenters, as well as karaoke enthusiasts, and songwriting hobbyists.

My TIYA members have performed on television in Smash, Glee, and venues around NYC ranging from The Underground, Le Poisson Rouge, Drom, Cornelia Street Cafe, Arlene’s Grocery, to the Broadway productions of Ghost, Sister Act, Evita, Wicked, West Side Story, South Pacific, The Phantom of the Opera, and Rent to name a few.

*** Lesson Details ***
We will always work on whatever you want.

For Singing, as a vocal technician/trainer I am like going to the gym for your voice. My exercises are safe, simple, and most importantly, I teach you how to practice correctly.

For ACTing, we can explore both the foundation itself with monologues and scenes, as well as the tricks of the trade mastering the camera frame and how to create memorable auditions for TV/Film.

For Songwriting, we can explore the fundamentals of both lyrics and music, as well as catchy hooks, production, and song structure.

You may use my time however you wish (Voice, Acting, Songwriting, or Artistic/Career guidance).

Most vocal sessions will usually be a combination of strengthening/conditioning exercises, and then exploring/performing a song.

The TIYA vocal training method is uniquely my own as it combines both Bel Canto and Speech Level Singing. Emphasis is on developing a relaxed, released, authentic vocal timbre to sing in any style. Concepts explored include: Coordination, Registration, and Intonation. Chest, Head, Edge, and Pharyngel registration, 2 instruments in 1, posture, breath management, vocal cord adduction, trigger phrases, ring, consistency, and more. 

Most ACTing sessions will be theatre monologues, TV/Film sides and/or On camera auditioning craft.

Career consultations usually include how to get an agent, headshots, branding, and marketing to align your artistic dreams with a strategy for success.

About Elisabetta
Originally from Rome, Italy, Elisabetta immersed herself in musical and classical studies since an early age. Traveling with her family, she had the opportunity to experience the most prestigious music productions in Europe and the United States. The choice to be an active part of the music world as a professional was inevitable and only natural.
She attained a Master’s Degree in Piano Performance and Music Teaching, from the Conservatory of Music Refice, Italy.
She developed a long career teaching music, providing music education instruction, encompassing practice of an instrument, history of music, and music theory. She taught classes with approximately twenty-five students, maintaining a sharp, consistent focus on correlating music to academics.
Through instrument instruction (piano, recorder, and key board) she was successful i
n developing skills in students such as discipline and concentration. The experience of practicing and producing beautiful music enhanced the self esteem of even the most difficult pupils, improving their achievements also in mathematics, science, language arts and other academic subjects.
While teaching, Elisabetta never stopped performing for various Cultural Associations in Solo Concerts and Chamber Music.
In New York for family and business reasons since 1999, Elisabetta continued her successful teaching career throughout these years, giving lessons to children and adults alike. Some of her students came from the Martha Graham School of Modern Dance, The Neighborhood Playhouse and Opera Singers.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are pleasant, interesting and stimulating. I have the gift to make things easier. Step by step you go a long way, and become eager to go further. You will look at challenges as just bigger rewards.
I was taught by very accomplished, intimidating Artists and Maestros… extremely demanding people. If you ever feel discouraged or a little doubtful about your abilities… believe me, I KNOW where you are coming from!
We’ll walk together towards a priceless treasure that will be with you for life. In a few months, hearing something beautiful in the air, you will be able to say “I can play that!”

My daughter adores Elisabetta, and with good reason. Elisabetta is an expert in the fine art of balancing warmth and gentleness with rigorous instruction and an insistence on the importance of technique.

My daughter has been playing piano for several years, and she wants to be treated as a mature tween, not a small child who must be praised for simply getting through a piece. On the other hand, she can also be hypersensitive and react badly to criticism; she will think someone is angry with her on the slightest provocation. In other words, she is a very tough customer! But somehow, miraculously, Elisabetta gets it perfectly right, and my daughter feels respected and encouraged.

I am extremely grateful to have found such a gracious and skilled instructor, and I'm very pleased with the progress my daughter is making.

I studied piano at the University of Central Florida and can teach classical piano, music notation, sight reading, harmonic theory, scales, arpeggios, chord progressions, and improvisation. I'm happy to share my skills and expertise with novice players of all ages.

About Gio
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studi
o Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

I provide clear lesson plans, regular evaluations, and at least 2 performance opportunities a year. I intersperse the lessons with theory and listening exercises, and interpolate movement and outside songs to keep the lessons as fun as possible.

About Monica
I'm a performing artist and music teacher. I received my Bachelors and Masters degree in vocal performance at Boston's New England Conservatory, where I was a member of the jazz, classical, and third-stream departments. I also spent 8 years gigging in Berlin, Germany and teaching adults and teenagers. However, I've always also enjoyed working with kids; especially introducing them to music through piano, language, movement, role-playing, and singing. I have the most experience teaching piano, and I think it's the best instrument to start on, if you don't know much about music. But flute was my first instrument, and singing is my forte!

Monica is a great instructor. She instructs a lot of children and has tons of patience and a great sense of humor - I'm an adult and this patience and humor carries over to my age group as well. She's excellent with all types of music on the piano and vocal coaching as well - she'll learn anything you want and teach it back to you - she's tough too, make sure you do the basics, and you'll get a lot out of her instruction.

Profile_106026_pi_kflo%20mug
Brooklyn, NY

View Full Profile

Brooklyn-based private music teacher operating in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Over a decade of experience teaching a broad range of styles to students of all ages and backgrounds. Strong focus on the individual student's personal interests and goals. Master's degree in music with years of experience touring globally and recording for both major and indie labels.
Whether you're looking to begin your or your child's piano learning experience, or take your playing to the next level, it's my passion to get students playing the music they want to play, right from the beginning!

About Ken
A recent transplant to the Park Slope area, I'm a composer and multi-instrumentalist originally from Raleigh, North Carolina. Prior to receiving my master's degree in composition from Mannes (The New School), I was the lead guitarist in the indie rock band Annuals. As part of this group I signed with two major record labels, appeared on national television programs such as Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and performed globally both on tour and at prominent festivals such as Bonnaroo, Coachella, Glastonbury (England), and Roskilde (Denmark).

I have been teaching private music lessons for twelve years, both freelance and as part of various organizations. My approach to teaching is highly dynamic—I don't use the same method with every student and I have no stylistic prejudices or an agenda to push. I approach each student as an individual
, tailoring lesson plans to suit their personal goals and interests. I have experience playing and teaching an extensive range of styles including pop, rock, jazz, country, metal, and classical. One of my main goals is to foster a sense of musical understanding with every student so that they may learn to combine technical, theoretical, and aural skills into a unified whole.

Most students want to learn to play songs they know and love. To that end, I get students playing the music they want to play right from the beginning, often through personally crafted arrangements of songs/pieces of the student's choosing, specifically tailored to their current skill level. This way, technical and theoretical skills are learned through direct experience with actual music, and only very rarely through rote exercise.

For more advanced players, I offer an array of strategies designed to take your playing to the next level. I find that the most common shortcomings of advanced players are conceptual. The technical skills are there but the level of conceptual and theoretical understanding has hit a wall. Many players find themselves playing the same chord shapes, melodic patterns, and harmonic progressions over and over again. I've had much success over the years in getting advanced students out of this rut and helping open up new pathways for exploration in both improvisation and composition.

I've been playing off and on for 15 years and am mostly self taught. I knew what I wanted to learn but was having trouble figuring it out on my own. In the first lesson Ken was able to zero in on what I want to learn and the best way to go about it. In three lessons I feel that I understand the guitar so much more than I have in the past 15 years of playing. Not only from a technical standpoint, but also in a "feel" sense. On my own I could learn all the scales, chords, and songs I wanted, but Ken has helped me to make sense of everything and use these skills to become a better player all around.

Ken is an incredibly talented musician and teacher and I would recommend him to anyone. He tailors his lessons to meet the individual goals of his students. If I wasn't understanding something, he knew how to explain it in a different way until I understood. He also taught me some techniques for figuring out songs on my own which I really appreciate since I am about move out of NYC. However, if I wasn't leaving I would still be taking lessons with him!

I graduated from Juilliard with and MS degree, studying with the most prominent teacher of the last 50 years: Rosina Lhevinne. I have taught 14 year olds through college age students the great standard literature and have helped them all develop an exceptional technique and practice regimen. My students have witnessed their progress in the form of self esteem, confidence and joy in practicing and making music. This in turn has given them true stature and grounding to thrive in all their undertakings and goals toward a plentiful future.

About Elizabeth
I am energetic, enthusiastic, bright, and a serious musician who is eager to help you develop your musical and pianistic talents to their peak level. To that end, I suggest appropriate literature for your desires, needs and growth, and I encourage some technical studies that help to aid you in facility and finger strength and resilience. As well, I have an exquisite Steinway piano which has a gorgeous sound. I respond to in-between lesson phone calls, and emails or texts as well. I am excited about what I have done for decades and hope to have you join my class of students.

I am 80 years old and was a piano student with Liz Wolff for about 9 year when she lived in Minneapolis. Liz is a wonderful instructor who pushed me to tackle more difficult and challenging music than I would have dared try on my own. While she was particular about both technical and musical issues, she always encouraged me to reach higher standards. She encouraged me to overcome my fear of performance. She was a friend as well as a teacher.

Lessons should be a creative and fun way to challenge your abilities and encourage growth. The curriculum is always designed with custom exercises to keep your goals and musical interests at the forefront.

About Matt
Hello and welcome!

My name is Matt and my goal is to create an enjoyable, safe environment for you to learn as effectively as possible. Music is hard work but it is the most fun when you are improving and doing what you want! Having been through years of many types of music lessons, a master's program and worked in music publishing, I know that what is most important it is to have a mentor who is thoughtful and open to honest conversations about goals, needs, and interests--- someone who invests and goes the extra mile to help you succeed--- someone who inspires and challenges you. This focused, collaborative approach to education is rare but of utmost importance to my style.

I'm first and foremost a composer with interest in using these skills to encourage you to discover and achieve your goals in composition, theory, or beginn
ing piano: additionally I'm in the very beginning stages of developing these ideas into a mobile/web application to further encourage consistent learning habits outside of lessons.

I look forward to meeting with you!

Matthew is an excellent teacher with a ton of patience, as well. Coming into our first lesson, I had some beginner experience, but it had been a while since I actively played the piano.

Teaching piano for over 15 years, all ages and levels welcome. I hold 2 degrees in classical piano performance, giving me the expertise to bring each piece we study up to a high performance level. Our lessons will focus on your unique needs, from the physical (breathing, posture, use of full body...) to the mental (music theory, understanding a composition, sight reading, focus, memory...) emotional (interpretation, confidence...), and more, all leading to a relaxed, natural and inspired technique. My studio is conveniently located in Bushwick near the Dekalb L stop, and Myrtle Wykoff M train, as well as the B38 bus line and many others. I have a beautiful Steinway Grand piano to enjoy ours lessons on and am also ready and willing to travel to you.

About Jacob
I am a professionally driven pianist. Music is my passion and number one priority. I regularly perform with other musicians. Classical music is my specialty and I’ve been through the various paths in this often competitive niche: from auditioning for music schools, regular public performances, accompanying various vocalists and instrumentalists, to preparing for and competing in piano competitions.

My experience within the conservatory atmosphere has given me insight into bringing out one’s own unique ability and approach to music that has been played time and time again by many capable hands. I hold two degrees in Piano Performance (B.A./M.M.). This, combined with many years of teaching and the public recital circuit have given me the perspective and know-how to hone and develop your individual skills at the keyboard.

Together we will
develop a plan to move you forward in your artistic desires and dreams, all while working on pieces close to your heart and introducing new works that will take you to next level. Lessons at my studio will have the benefit of being taught at my Steinway grand piano. I am also happy and able to teach you wherever is most convenient. (If you are in need of a piano I can help you find your match, acoustic or electric!)

Teaching piano to children and adults has quickly become more than a job for me.
While working with my private students and being the assistant my first piano teacher, I was a teacher at the Tchaikovsky Music School Of Brussels (Belgium) for 2 years and a half. I was lucky to start teaching at the age of 16 and gained a lot of experience.
After finishing a Bachelor in Piano at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels (Belgium), I was accepted to continue my studies in New York with the renowned piano pedagogue Daniel Epstein at the Manhattan School Of Music. I have received master classes from great artists such as Menahem Pressler, Nicholas Angelich, Dmitri Bashkirov, Dmitri Alexeev, Ivry Giltis, Maxim Vengerov,Itamar Golan, to name a few. All what I learned from these legends, I feel I should give to every student who loves music and the beautiful instrument that is the piano.

Being able to see that a student react in a positive way and that he has learned something is a true gift ...

About Geoffroy
I started to study the piano at the age of 5.
Since the age of six, I am student of Prof. Hagit Hassid-Kerbel. In September 2014,I entered the class of Prof. Boyan Vodenitcharov in the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and in Septembre 2017, the class of Prof. Daniel Epstein at the Manhattan School of Music.
I participated in Master Classes given by the world renowned artists and pedagogues such as: Menahem Pressler, Nicholas Angelich, Dmitri Bashkirov, Dmitri Alexeev, Ivry Giltis, Itamar Golan, Vladimir Perlin, Leonid Kerbel, Elena Ashkenazy,...
From the age of twelve, I participate every summer in “Musica Mundi” International Chamber Music Course and Festival and I am now part of the Faculties.
I am a first prize winner of the second Steinway Piano Competition for youngs Talents in Belgium, won the fourth and the special prize of the 10th
International Competition “Young Virtuosos” in Sofia-Bulgaria and was a laureate of the 20th Liege International Piano competition in Belgium.
In April 2016, I received a prize for the best interpretation of a contemporary work in the 10th Balys Dvarionas International Piano Competition, Vilnius-Lithuania.
I played for the first time as a soloist at the age of sixteen with the Brussels Chamber Orchestra and he has also performed with the symphonic orchestra I Musici Brucellensis.
In June 2016, I made my debut in the Centre for Fines Arts of Brussels together with the National Orchestra of Belgium conducted by Leonid Kerbel.
