Lessons are personalized to fit the student's needs! I have a bachelor's degree is music therapy and a master's degree in special education so I am qualified to teach children of varying developmental abilities. I take an interest in each student where we can bond on a musical and personal level . I have been teaching for 16 years and my students are a priority. My students understand that we can have fun while understanding that they need to put in the work.

I work from a few different course books in order to establish a foundation for beginners. From there I let them choose what songs they would like to learn and we work on that as well!

I can teach in English or in Portuguese.

There are as many methods of teaching piano as there are teachers.
I like to borrow ideas from others as well as offering my unique approach so there is a blend of traditional and non-traditional. I want each student to be able to read music, play by ear, be familiar with chord structure and improvisation and all the wonderful things musicianship can bring but most of all, I want my students to truly enjoy playing the piano and I do believe that process at least as important as product.

About Marie-France

I have taught piano and voice most of my adult life. After working with hundreds of students, I realized that I needed to adapt my teaching style to the uniqueness of each student, especially those whose perceptions differ widely from the general populace. I love what I do, helping each student dis

I enjoyed my 2 sessions with Marie, at the end of my second lesson she offered to email me a list of acting/improv classes in NYC because everyone she knows was in NYC.
This was contradictory because initially she told me she just moved here and doesn't know anyone up north. And besides that, I expressed how happy i was with her classes which was down the road 35 minutes and not commuting to NYC which is over a couple hours.
Anyway, I am glad that I actually learned something and got to do exercises and not leave with the feeling that i wasted my money and most importantly my time like other acting coaches on here.
Hannah
Great teacher. Very encouraging and patient which is what an adult learner needs. She supports her students and gives them interesting contemporary pieces to learn (that is the genre we picked so we stay interested in practicing!). Thanks Marie France!

I enjoyed my 2 sessions with Marie, and from work she was a 35 min commute vs 90 mins to NYC.
With her I felt engaged, she was prepared, professional, stayed on topic and gave relevant critiques and feedback.

Desihre is an amazing vocal and piano instructor. I started off taking piano classes and felt so comfortable that I began taking vocal lesson as well. She is such a patient teacher and always made me feel heard as a creative.

We began our lessons in person, but we transitioned to online classes. I was nervous about working from home and what the class experience would be. Desihre’s was so friendly I immediately felt at ease. I have learned so much working with Desihre and I am excited to keep learning!

James is a highly qualified instructor and was very thoughtful in answering my questions. I was impressed with the amount of resources he had on hand, such as worksheets, method books, sheet music, etc. I would definitely recommend James for anyone curious about learning music theory and/or the many instruments he plays.

I have many piano students and I love teaching all ages above 5 years old. I can prepare a student for the basics and competition pieces up to the intermediate level. I feel comfortable recommending other teachers to students who exceed my abilities into the advanced level.

I also welcome students looking to learn jazz, improv., and compositional techniques.

About Mary

I started playing saxophone in 1994. It was an immediate passion! As the years went on my thirst for music grew and I picked up more instruments. No matter which instrument I play the passion is the same. I like to write and arrange as well so I feel an extreme importance on music theory. I am clas

She is very nice.
Austin H.
Mary was a fun and patient piano lesson teacher. I have never taken any music lessons before so we started with the basics but she did a good job of finding the pace that I learned at. She taught slow enough for me to catch on, but not too slow to where I felt like my 30 min lessons were a waste of time/money.

Unfortunately, I had to cancel the rest of my lessons with Mary because I was becoming too busy with work to stay committed to my lessons and practice. If I ever take lessons again I'll definitely sign up with Mary again, zero complaints.
Madison A.
Mary was amazing teacher for me, and she really sparked my passion for music. I had really just started clarinet when I began taking lessons from her, and I truly believe one of the reasons I am going into music is because of how she made me see it. In the short time that I was able to be her student I learned more than just the fundamentals, and have yet to find a teacher that I work with as well as I did with her. If I could take up lessons with her again, I would in a heartbeat.

"My daughter has been learning with Dr. Walker for 2 years and 8 months. Under Dr. Walker's instruction my daughter has made significant progresses and has developed great interests in music. It's really our fortunate to have Dr. Walker as my daughter's teacher in her key ages of learning piano playing.

If you are looking for a piano teacher for you or your kids, please consider Dr. Walker seriously. Dr. Walker is a perfect piano teacher in all aspects.

Dr. Walker is good at teaching kids in a way that is adaptive to kid's different personality so that his teaching is easy for kids to understand and kids likes the lessons as well.

In addition, Dr. Walker teaches much more than piano playing technique itself. With his teaching, the student will also learn musical knowledge such as music theory, the development of classical music, the composers and their master pieces, and so on. I will not elaborate here.

And Dr. Walker always encourages his student while the student is struggling with technical difficulties or when the kids is not that careful. Special thanks to Dr. Walker for his patience and encouragement and I think this has protected my daughter's interests in learning piano and music.

You won't regret having Dr. Walker as your piano teacher."

"Mr. Rossi was the organist and pianist for Our Lady of Lourdes church. He has many years of experience of playing the organ and piano. Mr. Rossi is a great instructor. He understands your skills with piano and sets the lesson to your abilities. Mr. Rossi teaches music theory and not just memorization of songs. Mr. Rossi is very patient too. Mr. Rossi also knows a lot of great books for piano and he uses these in his lessons. He is also very flexible with schedule. I learned a lot of piano skills from Mr. Rossi. He is a great piano teacher."

He is an expert as well as teaches piano (classical and contemporary), keyboard, guitar (acoustic, electric and bass), voice, song writing, and band assembly. He is every creative and most importantly, he knows how to teach. Should listen to his CD, its amazing!!! He played almost all of the instruments. Highly recommended."
