My 10 year old son has no musical knowledge what-so-ever. We wanted him to have some basics, and he was curious about the guitar. Sadly our family isn't musical and it's hard to know where to start. We were lucky to have engaged Stephen. His calm, patient, encouraging approach has been the perfect complement to my son's temperament.

When I overhear snippets of exchanges during their lesson I am excited that my son is making connections and having a conversation about what he's learning. I can't support his instruction because of my complete inability to read sheet music—so I am particularly pleased that he seems to be making observations and taking small steps towards understanding something that confounds me.

My son looks forward to his time with teacher and (so far) is interested in practicing too. Of course we'd recommend Stephen!

Hi, My name' s Geoff and I' ve been playing the Piano since 1963. I offer Technical Studies, NYSSMA Pieces, Reading Skills, Classical as well as Popular Music. I' m patient with students as well as schedule changes due to school related conflicts including switching for students studying for Midterms and Finals type things. Let' s get you playing!

About Geoff
Hi, my name is Geoff and I play Double Bass, Bass Guitar, Cello and Piano. I played full time in a Symphony orchestra for 20 yrs., began playing Piano in 1963, Bass Guitar 1970, Double Bass 1977 and Cello 1982. I prescribe lessons complete with Solo, Ensemble, and Technical Playing and Reading Skills thoroughly as well as progressively. I make the lessons fun and interesting and relate well with all types of personalities. My students view me as a teacher and friend who' s a good listener when they have things like overloads in homework from school and other complications that kids face.They do great at NYSSMA and are asked to play in all ensembles at school. I love animals and my hobbies are hiking in the mountains including in snow and ice, camping, building things and work on my own car when I can. Most of my students stay with me for
8-10 yrs. and handle themselves very well in all ensembles. They play to earn scholarships for college as well and play for life. Happy Playing!

I have known Desmond for two years now as he has been my vocal coach. Desmond has been exceptional in guiding me through my progress. He is able to make each lesson enjoyable and gives me the sense of achievement. He continues to challenge me in order to better myself. Desmond believes that in order to be able to sing properly, one has to free himself from within, so he makes certain to take some time out in order to get comfortable and in the zone. I highly recommend Desmond as a vocal coach as it is a privilege to work with him.

My youngest student is 3.5 years old. That said, I also teach adults - sometimes parents take lessons with their kid! Believe me when I say it's very fun and productive when both parent and child knows what needs to be practiced. I usually balance out lessons with not just famous classical pieces, but also with your favorite pop tunes! Every student is different, so I adjust my lessons and provide customized material accordingly.

You will learn technical skills such as scales and arpeggios in fun ways as I incorporate them into songs they want to learn! You will also learn about putting your emotions and interpretation into the music. Music theory is a must for students in order to understand how to read notes. I'll even incorporate some songwriting or composition to develop creativity and originality!

About Tammy
I conduct group lessons for young children, which I am unable to state on my profile/list of services here. You can send me a message if you are interested in them!

I believe EVERYONE should have the opportunity to learn music, especially children, in a fun and enjoyable way! As someone who grew up around music (my mother is a music teacher!) I wish to give that chance to others.

I started playing the piano at around the age of four, and helped out as a substitute teacher at my mother's music school back in Singapore while in High School. I left shortly after to pursue music at Berklee College of Music, where I graduated summa cum laude in August 2013 with a Bachelor's of Music in Piano Performance and Contemporary Writing and Production!

My students range from as 3.5 years old, to the grandmother of a couple of my students. I wo
rk mostly with children, but have a handful of adult beginner students I work with as well.

Everyone is different - and I personally take the time and effort to develop and customize my lessons and materials for each student. I'll push you (a little!), to make you realize just how much you can do!

Music is an all-rounded experience. Not only can I offer you a chance to learn how to play different styles of piano, from jazz to pop to classical, but I can also teach you how to write your own songs, arrange them, and perhaps (if you like) record them!

I encourage and foster the love of music in young children. With over 20 years of experience as a concert pianist I am here to share all my experiences with the younger generation. I am a pianist with a passion for singing. Also, I am a lyric player :) I received my Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Piano Performance and I have had over 5 years of teaching experience. I cannot wait to work with young kids in a stress-free, motivating and fun environment.

About Mintra
Let's have some fun at the piano and make your experience with music the one that would leave a handprint on your heart. I am a pianist and I perform every year throughout my whole life. I have given solo piano concerts and piano + singing concerts. Venues I have performed include Carnegie Hall, Merkin Concert Hall, Bohemian National Hall, Stifle C. Ernst Hall in NYC and much more out of New York. I am classically trained but I also have a passion for musical theatre and pop music. I believe that classical music provides the best foundation for everyone who wishes to learn piano. Every music college provides a group piano class and that's how essential it is for you to branch out in the future whether or not you would end up being a professional pianist or found yourself interested in other instruments. Music heals and it lights up every
house with it's magic.

Want your child to start getting into music and piano? My approach is that music lessons need to be fun! We will play games, jump, dance, and sing. Through all that, the students will learn piano, music theory, sight-reading, and ear training.

About Dor
Dor is an Israeli-born vocalist based in Brooklyn, New York. She began her music education at the age of five when she studied classical piano. During those years she had experimented with saxophone and guitar but soon realized that her voice is her most powerful instrument.

In 2009, she started taking classical voice lessons and joined the “Moran Singers Ensemble” (Israel). With them, she performed many high profile national and international events, and eventually managed the ensemble during her last year there. In 2014 Dor joined the prestigious “Gary Bertini Israeli Choir”, directed by Ronen Borshevsky, where she participated in several co-productions with the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by legendary Zubin Metta.

In 2015 Dor moved to New York to continue her academic studies at The New school for Jazz and Contempor
ary Music, after receiving a sizeable scholarship from the school itself.

In 2016 she formed a vocal jazz quartet, a collaboration with Israeli composer Rami Bar-David.

Dor is also the leader of 'SAGE', a progressive-rock band, playing her original music.

Dor is extremely detail oriented - she will make sure that you learn about every little nuanced bit of your voice. For me personally, not only has she helped me improve my singing, but also she has helped me SPEAK better. Yes that's right - her vocal techniques has actually helped me a ton when I was interviewing for new jobs to sound more confident and composed. It's very rare that a teacher can help you learn something that is applicable beyond its original context, but Dor has done exactly that. Highly recommended!
