Through my individualized approach, we will reach your goals. As a professional piano teacher for 20+ years, I encourage my students to feel comfortable enough to comment or ask questions during lessons, practice, and even develop a love and knowledge of music that will last a lifetime! I want the ineffable joy of playing and learning to play piano to be the reason my students attend lessons!
Proper technique is paramount, so ALL students are taught the correct technique / hand position regardless of age/ level; poor habits are difficult to break!
Each student gets a Lesson Book and a Music Journal. The journal is where I clearly document the week’s assignments (practice) and add tips and/ or specific techniques. Although I’m classically trained, I encourage students to play what they love!

I hold an annual Student Recital every June.

(NYSSMA prep offer all levels.)

*It is highly recommended that you have or plan to purchase a keyboard or piano on which to practice.

About Trina

I can play any number of styles from blues and country to hard rock and heavy metal. I've been playing guitar for about 15 years now. I know music theory very well and I'm great with making the theory part fun to learn while teaching to play a style that the student prefers. I'm an easy going guy and really patient. I make the promise to every student that I will give them every bit of effort and support I can to propel them in their music career. I'm one of those people who gets along with everybody and I like to make my lessons fun for each student.

About Garrett

I've been playing guitar for about 15 years now and I've played in just about every type of band. After playing in a metal band for about 5 years I switched over to a classic rock group for a couple years. In both of those groups I was lead guitar/lead vocals. Now for the last few years I've bee

Great lesson, loads to learn!!!
Brad
I tried learning guitar a number of years ago. Garrett was great getting me started back into guitar. He quickly got me going with some simple chords and techniques. He has a strong understanding of guitar and makes it easy to understand. + he can play anything!
Derrick
What can I say about Garrett. I have never met a better guitarist in my 20 years of playing. Taking lessons with him was one of the best decisions I ever made. I would pay him double. No matter the guitar style, Garrett seems to have played it for years and has real insight on any of the different styles from Blues, to Country, to Rock, to Classic Rock, to Metal. He helped me not just learn riffs or songs but scales and has bug in teaching me more advanced music theory as well. He truly is the perfect mix of good person and amazing guitarist. Don’t miss the chance to learn from one of the best no matter your skill level!

"If I had more stars I would still indicate the maximum. I have been working with Shauna for a while. I am a (very) amateur singer, but really wish to work on my voice -- I love singing and also consider doing so in public my last phobia. Shauna is so knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and empathetic. I feel far from being "pushed," I am instead treated with remarkable understanding of where I'm at vocally and what I need in terms of both technique and support. I feel very lucky to work with her; she's a joy!"
