My goal as a teacher is to make students successful in their goals. I work with a variety of people; some of them study music for personal enjoyment and others for their musical career. Everyone responds differently to music, that is why I prepare special lessons for each student. It is important that my students enjoy what they are playing and for that reason I have a variety of repertoire that they can choose from.
From a lot of experience with beginner piano students, both young and adults, I have been able to find a regimen of piano teaching that combines time efficiency with fun. As the lessons continue, I slowly add new tools to each weekly lesson that are exiting and interesting. While working with intermediate to advanced students, I have had coached them to apply and get accepted into some of the top Universities and Conservatories in the country.

I am also a composition teacher. I work with composition students from beginner to advance. My composition students, over the years, range from all ages starting at 7. My students, after the first year, have been able to write string quartets and piano trios. My advanced students have entered competitions all over the country and are very successful in their composition practice. Some of their compositions have been performed in famous concert halls and schools.
As a vocal coach, I work with students of all ages. The repertoire that I recommend to beginner students includes Disney, Broadway and classical music. For intermediate and advanced vocal student, I have successfully prepared them for competitions, Broadway and University auditions as well as personal enjoyment.
Most recently I held a piano, composition and vocal recital for my students at the world famous Steinway Hall in New York City. I believe that some students work better when there is motivation for performance activities. For that reason I host these type of events. Students that decide they want to take place in these events perform among all levels. I offer these performance opportunities as an invitation. Each student has a choice as to whether they would like to perform.

About Cindy H.

Close
Brooklyn, NY
View Full Profile

With over 10 years of teaching experience, I am able to prepare students for polished, accurate, playing with an emotional connection. Beginners will learn to read music using method books that are supplemented with authentic classical pieces (as opposed to beginners' versions of popular pieces). Intermediate students will learn classical pieces from all musical eras. We will cover all major and minor scales, arpeggios, sight reading, and aural skills.

About Cindy
Regardless of where your musical interests lie, I can help you improve your skills! Growing up, I fell in love with playing and singing all styles of music! I've delved into classical, jazz, R&B, soul, gospel, reggae, soca, pop and musical theater, and I can teach you how to apply proper technique to the genre(s) of your choice!

If you're looking to become a better singer, we will focus on finding the beauty and power in your voice in a healthy manner. Vocal health is an important component of everything I teach, and I work to eliminate strain and vocal fatigue. We will work on balancing your vocal registers to give you control over the troublesome middle range. With a healthy foundation in place, we will fine tune your skills by addressing pitch accuracy, vocal control, phrasing, dynamics, expression and microphone technique.

If y
ou're interested in playing piano, you will learn how to read music and/or play by ear. You'll learn scales, chords, arpeggios, sight-reading, and basic music theory. For singers who are interested in piano, I've developed a great technique to teach you how to accompany yourself.

For songwriters, I can help you write stronger lyrics and set them to music appropriately.

In general, I'm pretty upbeat and fun. However, I expect you to practice. When you practice, you hear and feel the difference and everyone's happy! If you don't practice, you'll remain in the same place, and it's frustrating for everyone. :( Please, please, please practice! :)

My degree in music education and wide range of experience allows me to accommodate different learning styles. I have a knack for breaking down seemingly difficult or mysterious concepts in a way that's easy to understand. I also understand the demands of being a full time musician, and can offer advice to students who are interested in going that route.

I would love to help you enhance your enjoyment of music by making it fun and easy for you to learn!

I am excited about my teacher and my lesson. Cindy was not only patient but she explained things to me so simply. I found it quicker and easier to understand because of the way she explained things to me than when I have had explanations by my last two teachers. She is cheerful, friendly and has a beautiful spirit.
I am also very happy her location is convenient and not far from my home. THANK YOU!!

I've been playing the piano since I was six, and I've been teaching for over ten years. I tailor my curriculum to fit your interests and abilities. Although I play many different styles and genres, classical piano is my favorite subject to teach! Your true teachers will be Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven, Rachmaninoff and more. I love searching through the classical repertoire to find the perfect pieces for every skill level. Here are some sample topics we will cover:

--healthy and effortless technique
--fluency in music reading
--knowledge of classical repertoire
--memorization/performance skills
--basic scales/chords/arpeggios
--basic musicianship (including ear training, expression, style, performance, etc.)

About Joseph

About John D.

To my teaching, I bring almost forty years of experience as a performer, recording artist, and historian. I teach students of any age (i.e. children, teenagers, and adults), and at all levels of experience (i.e. beginners, intermediate, and advanced), the technical and expressive intricacies of the standard classical repertoire. But what makes my teaching unique or those elements drawn from my background beyond music. Prior to attending The Juilliard School, from which I graduated with a Masters Degree (M.M.) in Piano Performance, I graduated from Brown University with a Bachelors Degree (B.A.) in History and Russian Language & Literature. Over the course of my career as a performer and teacher, my first-rate education has set me apart from other pianists, particularly as it relates to my work researching, playing, recording, and writing about music connected to African American culture. In lessons, I draw my own experience and education and encourage all my students to develop ...

About John
I believe that music is for everybody, not just professionals. My many years of teaching beginners, teenagers, and adults of all levels, beginner, intermediate, and advanced, has shown me that, with practice and time, virtually everyone can attain a high level at the keyboard and play the piano and the incredible music written for it from the inside, not just from the outside looking in. If this challenge sounds like fun, I would be happy to help you (or your child) on that musical journey.

My lessons are engaging, student-centered, and never intimidating. My goal is to meet the needs of the person in front of me - period. No longer study with someone who follows the "master-apprentice" approach. This mind-set is outdated, and most of all, ineffective. My extraordinary training in both psychology and music education allow me to convey the best of teaching strategies to my students, leading to their musical success.

You will not be disappointed.

Receiving her degrees from Bard College (BA - Piano Performance, Vocal Performance, Theater) and Columbia University (Music & Music Education), she has the excellent training to back up her skills in performing.

Focussed on a student-centered rapport at the forefront of her teaching philosophy, she is dedicated to meeting the needs of her students. She has a plethora of experience and teaching strategies to tailor toward her students.

Because different types of people learn differently, as a piano teacher, I pride myself in being adjustable to each student and their needs to start or further their knowledge of the piano and music theory. I am also well-versed in several different genres or styles of playing such as classical, pop, jazz, Japanese, and playing by ear. I am confident in catering my lessons towards what each person wants to learn at various difficulties.

About Cheyenne
I started playing the piano when I was just 4 years old--though at the time, I practice begrudgingly, music took hold of me ever since. Music is a great way to express oneself and share with others how you feel where words may fail. I am a big believer of art helping to bridge gaps and help communication with those around us.

Because of teachers I've had that were strict when I needed a push, funny, eccentric, and caring when I needed a laugh, and most importantly believed in me, I aspire to provide the same encouragement to others.
