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
My name is Joseph P. I began playing the piano and writing music at a very young age. I've been teaching for over ten years, and I love sharing music with my students. I specialize in piano, composition, and music theory, and I play many genres ranging from classical to R&B.

I'm currently pursuing a PhD in Music Composition at The Graduate Center, CUNY, and I have taught undergraduate courses at Queens College, CUNY.

Working with Joseph was a delight! He provided his services as an accompanist for a Christmas music video I was recording.

He was always punctual when arriving to rehearsals, scheduling rehearsals was a breeze, even with our packed schedules, and he was always prepared for each rehearsal with copies of the music I'd provided, as well as notes he'd gained by working through the music prior to the rehearsal.

He had a pleasant demeanor, and plenty of creative ideas for any places in the song that allowed for improvisation or personalization of the chords or phrasing. His accompaniment was the perfect companion to my singing, and could range many genres of music.

I also worked with him as the pianist in larger bands performing in the NYC area, and there as well, he was great to work with. Highly recommended! :)

Classical music is the foundation for everything else!

I have been teaching piano for over 40 years, full-time for the past 13. Besides the actual repertoire, technique and theory are always included in my lessons because they are essential. Sight reading and ear training are also included in some lessons.

I stress accuracy in playing and attention to details! I also teach my students HOW to practice. Slow, accurate practice is the answer. Practicing takes patience!

Please note: Home lessons must be at a location that I can get to easily with public transportation. I do not have a car.

About Emil
I started to study the piano at the age of seven with Hrant Minassian in my hometown of Island Park, New York. During high school I continued my studies with Jack Chaikin , a graduate of the Juilliard School. I attended Hofstra University where I received a B.A. in Music in 1979. At Hofstra, my piano teachers were Blanche Abram and Morton Estrin.

After graduating from Hofstra, I moved into Manhattan and continued my piano studies with Elena Wolkonsky at the Juilliard School. I also took a few lessons from Adam Aleksander, concert pianist, in Miami. So all together, I took lessons for 20 years with six different teachers!

I started teaching piano when I was 18 years old and taught all throughout college. After enjoying a successful career in data processing for 22 years, I decided to go back to teaching piano in 2003.

I thoro
ughly enjoy what I am doing. It's a pleasure to pass on to my students everything that my great teachers taught me.

Emil was the teacher I was looking for. I have tried to learn piano on my own for a while now, but most of the time it became overwhelming. I wasn't sure I was going in the right direction, or if I was learning what I should know in the right order. So far, what Emil had done for me was to take what I've known already and add much more to it. He also has started to correct some bad habits I became accustomed to, which I would have never picked up on my own.He's very knowledgeable, and ties in music theory during the lesson. He's down to earth, throws in some jokes to lighten the mood, and create an enjoyable learning experience.

Massapequa Park, NY

I generally teach with a long-term focus in mind. Want to learn how to play that piece that seems impossible to you now? I can show you how to get there. I'm happiest when I get a chance to open the flood gates on all the knowledge I've accumulated about the pieces I love, and that's also when you'll be getting the most out of me as a teacher.

About Erik E.
Basically, I'm very good at what I do. If you want someone who's a fountain of information, who can give you hours of background and detail on a Chopin piece or the like, and knows what it takes to get to the point where you can pretty much play anything, I'm your guy. If you want someone to teach your daughter Mary Had A Little Lamb, I can do that too, and that's often where it all starts!

I've been teaching for 12 years and have had well over 150 different students in that time: Kids, retirees, beginner to advanced.

I've had experience with Piano/Classical Piano for more than 13 years. Within the first few lessons you'll be able to learn basic music notation, theory and sight reading and as time goes on you'll be able to play popular pieces. I specialize in sight reading, technique training and the anime/videogame/film genre music. I have a metronome,upright piano, and several albums of sheet music in my home studio and love working with students of all ages and experience levels. Looking forward to teachin!

About Joshua
I am a fun-loving, calm, and patient person, skilled in teaching students of all ages and communicating with them. I started playing music at the age of five when my mother signed me up for piano lessons. While in elementary school, I have participated in several NYSMA festivals and talent shows in the area.

In middle school, I attended Nathaniel Hawthorne MS74 where I learned to play the oboe, and received my ABRSM Grade 5 Piano and music theory qualifications. I participated in the Queensborough-wide senior band and performed as an oboist at Carnegie Hall on June 2010.

During high school, I attended the Bronx High School of Science and also received my ABRSM Grade 8 Piano qualification. I also volunteered at Queens Library's Bayside Branch, teaching reading, grammar, writing, mathematics, and basic chess to children.

In recent
years I have been attending the City College of CUNY and am currently pursuing my bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering. Also, I have started composing/arranging pieces on the Musescore platform.

I have seven years of performing and teaching experience and hold a B.M. from Berklee College of Music and an M.M. from Manhattan School of Music.
Whether you are playing the piano for the first time or have played for several years, my lessons yield noticeable results.

I am originally from Eastern Europe where I studied and played classical piano since 1996. I moved to the US in 2007 and began teaching beginner and intermediate level piano students, ages 5 and up.
I am a strong believer in teaching the proper posture from the very first lesson, a key to make piano playing easy and enjoyable. As a creative spirit, I incorporate a wide variety of teaching methods and games to make learning more fun and engaging. I ensure that you get the most out of every minute of our lesson, saving any personal small talk for before or after the designated time.
It's so personally rewarding to see my students develop the passion for classical piano music the way I did. I look forward to helping you discover your full potential.
