This is a piano class designed for a small group of students, (two to four). I use the group setting to enhance the learning experience as students can learn from watching what are students are experiencing as well as from their own experience. The group setting is also great for skills learning, rhythm, reading, knowledge and more

Dan knows how to do everything! I consider myself an advanced student, and he's able to clearly answer all of my questions and show me examples on the fly! I highly recommend him, especially if you're eager to learn quickly
Susan B.
Dan is an excellent instructor. Although I have played the piano for years, my technical skills and understanding of music theory have improved exponentially through my work with Dan. He is particularly accomplished at using multiple approaches to explain difficult concepts to ensure that I fully understand them. I highly recommend him.
Nicola H.
Have had a few lessons with Dan so far and nothing to complain about. Really this is the type of teacher I'm looking for the whole time as an adult beginner. He knows what he is doing and how to push you to the next level.

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 pian

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

Kathryn comes with two important strengths. First, she is a working professional, with excellent technique and musicality from real world experience. Secondly, she is patient with students like me who are still figuring it out. Those two things make for a great teacher.
Amanda Testa-Oerth
Kathryn has helped me in my musical journey for a very long time! Over the 15 years I have worked with Kathryn she has been a teacher, life coach, and now musical colleague. Kathryn's teaching style is always warm and very informative. She builds confidence on something I did well, then gives me recommendations on how to improve either a technical skill or with musicality of the piece we are working on. After every lesson, I come out feeling improved and more confident than when I went in. Kathryn has guided me in both classical and musical theater pieces as well as introduced me some very interesting contemporary songs that I have greatly enjoyed. With her guidance and instruction, I have grown into a musician that is confident in my own abilities for preforming and a caring instructor to my own students. I highly recommend studying with Kathryn if you have the chance. It is a fantastic learning experience every class!

Kathryn is brilliant and exceptional. If I could give her more stars I would. She is an amazing teacher no matter what age or evel you are from beginner to pro.

Piano is often students first instrument, and I would love to be a part of your musical journey!
Piano lessons will consist of theory, technique, sight-reading and repertoire. Additionally, students will have performance opportunities a few times each year, both in-person and online. I love to keep lessons fun and supportive, so we can reach your goals in an enjoyable way. I personally took extensive piano and theory courses during my musical studies, both in undergraduate and graduate study. I look forward to working with you!

"My son began taking piano lessons about 6 months prior to our finding Miss Fawn. Prior to switching instructors, he hated practicing and his lessons. Piano held no interest for him. Once he began taking lessons from Miss Fawn, everything changed. He practices on his own for longer periods than he is required to and Miss Fawn has instilled a love of the craft in him. He loves it and he loves learning from her. He is so impressed by her ability and tries his best to be his best for her. Thank you, Miss Fawn."

"We switched instructors three years ago and we have been so pleased with the boys' progress, not only in their ability but also in their understanding of technique and musicality. Daniela has helped them to advance beyond merely playing correctly to playing with understanding, appreciation, expression, and emotion. She doesn't take her students one song at a time through a book, but she helps the kids select a piece they want to learn to master, and then they work until it is played with perfection."

"Learning piano has been an amazing experience because Bill tries his best to pass his musical passion down to me. He doesn't take the boring route of learning piece by piece as many other teachers often do, but he focused strongly on musicality, style, and interpretation.

This makes practice and learning more engaging instead of becoming a mindless chore."
