I am a concert pianist with a passion for teaching. From a boarding arts secondary school to prestigious conservatories in both the US and Europe, I have honed my craft, and developed a love for sharing my passion with others. I have taught students at the Yale School of Music and at the Eastman School of Music in the United States. Additionally, I have taught a private studio for a year in Brussels, Belgium and given masterclasses at universities and schools across the Americas. My goal as a teacher is to instill my own love for music in my students.

About Michael
I am a concert pianist with a passion for teaching. From a boarding arts secondary school to prestigious conservatories in both the US and Europe, I have honed my craft, and developed a love for sharing my passion with others. I studied with some of the best teachers in the world at Eastman, the Yale School of Music, the Paris Conservatoire, and the Royal Conservatory of Ghent, in addition to having attended some of the greatest festivals in the world to study with other great pianists and pedagogues. Teaching has always come naturally to me and has felt like a natural extension of my abilities as a performer. I believe it is a necessity to spread what I have learned through teaching.

Michael adapted himself very quickly to 'what' I wanted to play and 'how' I needed to learn taking into account my little experience. He is very positive and motivating.

Michael is a great teacher! I studied with him while he was teaching at Yale. He is a very attentive and careful instructor and generous with his time. He has a profound understanding of music and is very competent also in technical aspects of practicing. I absolutely recommend him!

I have been Caroline's student for several years now, and she is an excellent teacher. She is a superb pianist (as her credentials indicate), but she was also encouraging, supportive and attuned to me as a student. She was able to isolate particular trouble spots and suggest ways to fix the problems at those spots.

About Diana
Diana is a classical guitarist and pianist originally from Santa Fe, New Mexico. In addition to guitar and piano, she teaches voice, ukulele and songwriting in New York City, where she now resides. She spent the better part of a decade studying closely with two mentors: celebrated classical guitarist Lynn McGrath, and revered pianist Stephen Montoya. As a high school student, Diana regularly performed in recitals and participated in competitions and festivals across the U.S., including the Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) and The Parkening Guitar Competition, where she received masterclass instruction from distinguished guitarists like David Russell, Ana Vidovic and Christopher Parkening. She went on to study classical guitar at the North Carolina School for the Arts as the youngest student admitted in her focus at the age of 17, and la
ter completed her studies in music performance, composition, and foreign language at the University of New Mexico. In addition to her classical studies, Diana sang in a variety of traveling choral groups throughout high school and took small roles in the Broadway musicals ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ and ‘Rent’.

In the course of her studies, Diana was honored with awards of excellence from the National Honors Society of Guitar and recognized for her performances with the critically acclaimed woman’s guitar ensemble, ‘Presti Quartet.’ She was selected two years in a row to perform 1st chair in the New Mexico ALLSTATE Guitar Orchestra - the first-ever young woman to earn that position. The following year she was chosen as one of twelve guitarists to represent music in education in the United States.

In the time since her studies, Diana has called many places home. She lived in New Orleans for several years and in that time her music interests broadened to embrace traditional American forms, such as jazz and the blues. During that time she ran a private music practice, teaching children and young adults to become proficient with music. She continued her travels, her studies and her teachings during the summer of 2017 in Spain. She has been living, studying and teaching in New York City since the fall of 2017, always carrying with her the belief that music should never feel like a chore and that learning music should be curiosity-driven, active, enjoyable, and emphasize self-expression. Diana believes in building a strong foundation of musical knowledge with her students by providing the tools to create good habits from the beginning and encouraging effective, deliberate practice. It is her mission to inspire aspiring musicians as a music educator and bring a life-long love of music to her students.

New York, NY

View Full Profile

Experienced teacher, musical director, composer, and accompanist (currently working at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts New Studio on Broadway). I believe that a slow detailed approach to learning anything is vital to its success. Many people will tell you that they can have you playing your favorite song in one lesson but what I offer instead of a "one hit wonder" is a foundation in technique, theory, and musicianship that allows my students to excel and surpass the "one hit wonder." All ages are welcome! I specialize in the beginner and intermediate student. Can't wait to begin this musical journey with you.

About Andrew
Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska I have played the piano since the age of 4. My parents used to tell me that I could stop and start whatever activities I wanted to whether that be playing baseball or participating in karate. The only thing I was not allowed to quit was playing the piano. At first I was not very good, I was not some musical prodigy, in fact some might say I was bad. I didn't like to practice, I just wanted to be able to play. Unfortunately that's not how learning an instrument works. It was not until middle school that I began to appreciate that my parents had made me play the piano because after 6 years I started to improve. This of course was because I started to enjoy what I was doing, and I started practicing more and more.

Eventually I made my way to becoming a singer and a composer but that's a whole other stor
y. I graduated from New York University Tisch School of the Arts with a degree in Musical Theater. While there I was exposed to all different genres and became a respected vocal coach amongst my peers and alumni. I also successfully music directed several shows both at NYU and a children's theater in upstate New York. It is a gift like no other to be able to play any instrument and I am overjoyed to share that gift with all of my students past, present, and future.

I graduated from Juilliard with and MS degree, studying with the most prominent teacher of the last 50 years: Rosina Lhevinne. I have taught 14 year olds through college age students the great standard literature and have helped them all develop an exceptional technique and practice regimen. My students have witnessed their progress in the form of self esteem, confidence and joy in practicing and making music. This in turn has given them true stature and grounding to thrive in all their undertakings and goals toward a plentiful future.

About Elizabeth
I am energetic, enthusiastic, bright, and a serious musician who is eager to help you develop your musical and pianistic talents to their peak level. To that end, I suggest appropriate literature for your desires, needs and growth, and I encourage some technical studies that help to aid you in facility and finger strength and resilience. As well, I have an exquisite Steinway piano which has a gorgeous sound. I respond to in-between lesson phone calls, and emails or texts as well. I am excited about what I have done for decades and hope to have you join my class of students.

I am 80 years old and was a piano student with Liz Wolff for about 9 year when she lived in Minneapolis. Liz is a wonderful instructor who pushed me to tackle more difficult and challenging music than I would have dared try on my own. While she was particular about both technical and musical issues, she always encouraged me to reach higher standards. She encouraged me to overcome my fear of performance. She was a friend as well as a teacher.

For the last 3 years I have been teaching beginner piano to people of all ages. Understanding the fundamentals of piano and music theory is going to be the foundation of your musical future. We will learn how to read notes off a staff, learn rhythms, play to a tempo, utilize both hands, play scales, chords, and accompany yourself or others. There's always room to learn a fun pop song!

Dan is definitely the best voice instructor I have ever had. Not only is he warm and down to earth, he is incredibly supportive, knowledgeable and makes practice fun. He took a lot of time to get to know my goals and interests when it came to singing; my confidence in my voice has been shaken a lot due to less than encouraging voice instructors and he was very empathetic and genuine in his support. I would highly recommend him as a voice instructor!

I like to focus on cultivating a love for music in my lessons! Too often, I have heard adults tell stories of giving up on music lessons at an early age, just because they didn't enjoy it! I think every kid learns differently, and creating a lifetime passion for music is the most important part of beginner lessons!

About Caroline
Hi, I'm Caroline! I love to sing, write songs, play the piano, saxophone, and a little guitar! I recently graduated from the Frost School of Music in Miami, where I got my degree in Songwriting and Music Entrepreneurship. My favorite classical composer is Chopin, but I am a huge musical theater nerd, and love to learn Broadway songs on the piano!
