I specialize in teaching technique. Through the correct, high placement of vowels and deep breath support I can teach my students to have free, powerful and controlled voices. I teach all genres but I specialize in opera. I was an opera singer myself and I particularly enjoy preparing students for applying to schools to be a voice performance major. I have a student now who is applying to all the top music schools.
Rebecca is not only professional and patient but she is an expert at identifying the best vocal exercises to address your specific weaknesses. She would make a perfect teacher for beginners, experienced singers and anyone in between. I've been a student for about 10 lessons and have noticed a big difference!

Rebecca was was wonderful. She helped me with my technique and was very patient with me. She corrected things I didn't even realize I was doing wrong. She also has a great sense of humor which helped me feel comfortable working with her.
I will break down the nuances of learning the piano in a friendly, clear, and articulate manner. We will discuss various concepts of the acoustic guitar in the styles and songs you enjoy most.
A graduate of the University of Rochester with a B.A. in Music and Psychology and trained at renowned National Guitar Workshop, Adam is an experienced teacher and performer on the guitar, piano, ukulele, and bass in a variety of styles, including rock, pop, jazz, classical, and folk. Adam loves to share his passion for music with others, and ever since his first student, an autistic child, Adam has sought to make learning music fun, regardless of age, style, and ability.
*** Lesson Details *** My approach to teaching music is strictly an individualized one, catering to the specific interests and goals of each student. I believe that if learning music is truly enjoyable and fun, students will develop a sincere love for their instrument. In teaching children, my emphasis is on instilling in them a love of music. While progressing in mus
ic obviously requires preparation outside of lessons, I consciously avoid asking students to practice. Instead, I incorporate the music and styles that appeal most to the student and use them as vehicles for teaching concepts.
I strive to make learning music fun, regardless of age, style, and ability. I organize an annual recital to showcase my students' talents and hard work.
*** Travel Equipment *** I will provide all music and instructional materials, and ask that students provide a clean, quiet area to hold our lesson, ideally with a music stand. I also ask that a student provide their own instrument. If providing an instrument is not possible, I ask that the student notify me so I can provide an instrument for them in the interim.
*** Specialties *** I specialize in a wide range of styles on the acoustic and electric guitar, piano, ukulele, and bass.
I explain music theory in a fun, clear, and articulate manner and show its benefits and application in song writing, learning music, and playing by ear. My extensive background in rock, classical, pop, folk, and jazz allows for a truly cater my instruction to my student's tastes.
I make it my mission to structure my lessons on my student's goals and interests and avoid imposing concepts that don't interest my students.
Adam is a teacher par excellence. I am self taught from a well known book. I was doing well I thought until I got stuck. Adam gently showed me where I erred and made great suggestions for me to move on correctly. I never felt rushed or “ put down.” Adam was patient, open for questions, encouraging, comforting. I know I need much help to correct and advance in guitar from matters such as tuning, restringing, reading, and other things too many to write about. I look forward to my next lesson with enthusiasm.

Adam is prompt, professional and patient. He allows you to learn at your own pace and makes lessons fun by teaching popular songs.
Begin with piano basics and advance to more complex material from simple melodies with block chords, broken chords and arpeggios to Pachelbel's Canon in D and Beethoven's Fur Elise. Learn finger agility by practicing the Major and minor scales in parallel and contrary motion. Begin with one octave and advance to a range of four octaves. Add dynamics and phrasing to perfect your performance.
I am a music educator, classically trained with an advanced performance degree. As a soloist and collaborative musician, I have performed professionally in ensembles, bands and orchestras both here and abroad. With a high degree of knowledge and proficiency, I teach proper technique and practice strategies, music notation, theory, rhythm and phrasing, while adapting teaching approaches to match the needs of each student. I share a love of music with my students and it gives me great pride to hear each student develop their own musical voice.
*** Lesson Details *** My goal is to help students of varying ages and abilities succeed musically. Dedicated, experienced, encouraging, and sensitive to student moods, I am a multi-instrumentalist who can instruct you in acoustic guitar, classical guitar, piano (classical and popular repertoire
), oboe, and voice. Study music to awaken your aural senses, develop muscle memory, and enhance your intellectual development.
*** Studio Equipment *** Piano and bench, keyboard, guitar, guitar stand, music stand, foot stool. Ample seating for parents.
*** Travel Equipment *** I am comfortable teaching from a piano or keyboard. I will transport my own guitar and anticipate students will own or rent the instrument they will be studying.
*** Specialties *** Beginner to advanced music instruction, guitar notes and chords, piano melodies and accompaniment, vocal instruction, musical theater, classical piano and more.
Experience was phenomenal I had my first lesson today and so excited for the future!

Rina transformed a septuagenarn with very little vocal experience into a much more confident and capable vocalist...in only five 1hr lessons. I plan to continue with Rina because learning with her is fun and although I have learned a lot I want to absorb more of what she is capable of teaching me.

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!
I can teach a wide variety of styles, ranging from classical to theatre, pop and jazz. I take each and every student's unique abilities and ways they learn to work into account with them accordingly to their needs and interests.

Vyacheslav is the complete music teacher. He is a deeply analytical artist and is extremely perceptive and helpful. His style is at once humanistic and disciplined - he is a master artist AND technician. He goes out of his way to help you beyond the duration of your lessons and encourages you to think and explore. Seize the opportunity to work with him if you get it. I guarantee it will be time well-spent.

Having opportunity to work with Mr. Gryaznov, who is a top class performer, is such a privilege. His tremendous experience, both as concert pianist and pedagogue, makes him quite unique. I believe that every student can benefit working with Mr Gryaznov, as he shares his knowledge, talent and advices in a such sincere way.
Having recording sessions in Gryaznoff studio was for me, equally enjoyable process. Relaxed and warm atmosphere, professional equipment, together with the brilliant Hamburg D Steinway makes this studio one of the best of its kind in the heart of New York.
