A healthy physical approach to the piano, a keen appreciation for sound, and a curious mind - these are qualities which I've been able to help cultivate in my students. You will learn how to play without tension, utilizing the body to the upmost capacity. You will learn how to create the sound you want with an instrument that can do almost anything you want it to. And all of this will be done with a constant mindset of discovery. I want to help you not only play the music you want to play but to appreciate more deeply music you already know and love. I accomplish this through a flexible method which fits the unique needs and desires of each individual student.

About John
Greetings! I am a teacher who believes in the importance of understanding you and your needs so that we can accomplish, as a team, your specific goals for learning to play the piano - whether that means playing a Beethoven sonata, playing by ear, or creating your own music! I am a classically trained pianist with a Master's degree from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. I have studied with some of the most famous pianists in the world today including Menahem Pressler, Gabriel Chodos and Livia Rev. I also have a lot of experience in the world outside of classical piano, which informs my teaching and enables me to offer your a much more well-rounded approach to not only the piano, but to understanding and enjoying music itself!

After taking piano lessons from a family friend for several years growing up, I decided to pick piano back up in college. Thanks to John, I was able to do much more than that. We worked together for about a year and a half, and in this time John not only helped me become a better pianist than I had ever hoped, but he opened my eyes to expressive possibilities in music that I had never been exposed to. I used to think of a piece of music as nothing more than a series of notes to be played in order, at the right tempo, the right volume, etc. John helped me see that even the most simple melody contains an infinite number of possibilities. He taught me skills that allowed me to begin to harness these possibilities and to find my own sound and style. After working with John, I feel like I hear all music in a new way, and my love for music has never been greater. To sum up, John is an expert pianist and an even better teacher. I cannot recommend him highly enough to anybody, at any level, who has a desire to learn more about music and about the piano.

About David
I am a 20 year musician with 11 years teaching experience. Born and raised in New York City, I attended Laguardia high school for music and art and afterward Queens College majoring in music. My main instruments are Clarinet, Drums, and Saxophone, but i also have a strong background in Piano, Trumpet, and Flute. I've taken private music lessons for the past 15 years with world class musicians, among them David Weber and Howard Hirsch. I've performed in every major concert hall in New York City, including Carnegie Hall when i was only 11 years old. I performed alongside many famous musicians, including the late Tito Puente.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching includes all aspects of music; Musical theory, sight singing, as well as Music History. My teaching style allows the child to have fun while they learn their instrument, but I emph
asize a strong practice regiment. Your child will understand that while learning music and an instrument can be fun, there will be some work involved if they want to become great. I usually use either the Alfred or Rubank method books to supplement a curriculum that I tailor make for each individual student. Any question or confusion a student has about anything during the lesson will be explained in detail and dealt with until he/she understands the concept. I've had many students pass all levels of the ABRSM and NYSSMA exams as well as receive academic scholarships for musical excellence.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in the living room, drums set, piano,

*** Travel Equipment ***
I require that students buy the books I suggest, but if it is necessary, I can provide photocopies of pages from the books that I own. I also require my students to provide all writing equipment.

*** Specialties ***
all methods and styles. I've played clarinet and saxophone for orchestras, symphonic bands, and jazz bands. I've played drums for jazz, rock, and acoustic sets.

David came on time for our schedule lesson and came in ready to go. He helped my son the corrected way to blow trumpet (which he never learn from school) and broke down lesson so that he is not over wheeled. In just first lesson, I can hear the difference in my son's use of trumpet.

I've played piano since I was four years old. You'll learn not just how to become technically proficient, but how to find the emotional nuances in every piece. You'll learn how to interpret every piece you play to make it your own, while still expressing the wishes of the composer. And you'll gain all the technical and theoretical tools you need along the way, all in service of making expressive music.

About Jonathan
I am a classically trained composer working with today's leading performers, and a lifelong guitarist and pianist in rock and indie bands. My teaching/consulting studio will help you develop your full potential as a musical artist, whether you're a songwriter, composer or performer.

Jon is fabulous! He is able to provide a mix of classical, contemporary music styles to build on and develop a broad base of musical interest my son has. He is able to tailor his teaching tools to fit in with my son's interests. This is no mean feat, especially when my son is only 8 years of age.

Thanks so much Jon!

I've had Ableton for years but hadn't understood how to use it. It's not something you can tackle on your own. As with any other instrument, you need a good teacher in order to learn the most. She taught me more than I could have ever learned on my own.

My ample experience in teaching students from age 6 to 18 at the Community Music School in Chicago and the Brooklyn Musical Arts School have equipped me to be an excellent communicator and teacher. During my time teaching in these schools, I used methodical books such as the Kodaly Method, Alfred, Faber piano books and customized worksheets catered to the needs of each student. What distinguishes me as a teacher is my ability to understand student's strengths and weaknesses and teach in a way that best suites the student.
