Piano teacher with more than 15 years of teaching experience in South America, Eastern Europe and the US. I tailor lessons according to my student's needs, and organize with them Music Recitals, so they can get experience sharing their talent with others. My studio is in the NY metro area, and I teach all levels and ages of students.

About Edelweiss
Master in Arts, Pianist, Classical Singer and Teacher. I started to teach privately in my original country Ecuador, in 1995. Then I continued teaching at the National and Private Conservatory of Music in Guayaquil, as a Piano teacher, Piano Accompanist, and later on as a Voice Coach for the Conservatory Youth Choir. I went to Ukraine in 2003 to get my master degree in Music with a major in Voice, and continued with my private teaching there. Once in the US, I continued with my private piano & voice studio, and with vocal and choral coaching in the NY area.

I enjoy teaching! It gives me a lots of rewards seeing the progress and enthusiasm of my students. I prepare recitals for them to be exposed to the performance experience, and for them to be aware they have a talent to share with their loved ones and the society they live in.

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.

Katie was a wonderful violin teacher for my son (four years old at the time). Katie knew how to make learning music and the violin fun through games and various activities. She was attentive and patient, kind and encouraging. She worked with us to allow him to participate in the annual recital--she played a simple, beautiful song while he plucked an open string. She is reliable, accessible, and caring. Couldn't ask for a better, more qualified, and dynamic teacher than Katie to facilitate a positive musical experience a young child.

I greatly enjoyed my violin lessons with Katie. She improved my violin technique, encouraged me to tackle challenging solo pieces, and helped me prepare for youth orchestra auditions. She also guided me in producing video recordings for my college applications. On top of that, she is extremely patient and cheerful. Katie is the best!

Max is the most amazing teacher I’ve ever met. And I teach for a living. I am 45 years old. I got piano lessons when I was an elementary and junior high school student for approximately 4 years. Although I liked playing piano, I’d thought that I didn’t have enough talent, in terms of technical skill and emotional expression. In my first lesson, Max taught me how to use my wrist and elbow to make lighter sounds, as well as how to practice in a certain way in order to produce crystal clear sounds for trills and in faster parts, by making a proper space between notes. I never before understood these points and others, despite teaching by others. More importantly, he helped me to be confident in expressing my emotion in my playing. I realized that practicing piano is such a delightful process to be connected to my life memories and to liberate all my emotion attached to them. This is like a therapeutic process. His teaching makes my life more artistic and meaningful. I really appreciate his deep passion for teaching. It is clearly his mission. He is a true teacher, who wants to help people grow as artists in their own right. I just wish that I met him earlier. But I am glad that it is not late for me.

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.

I’m a graduate from both Mannes School of Music and Parsons School for Design, Piano Performance and Fashion Design major. I have performed all over the world in different cities concert halls, such as “Carnegie Hall”, “Palais Miller von Aichholz, Vienna, Austria”, Internatipnal Academy at Castelnuovo di Garfagnana in Italy, Sichuan Convervaroty of Music in China, and my own artistic organization in New York which is gathering more than 100 members and 50 experiences top musician in NYC who are graduates from Juilliard, Manhattan and Mannes School of Music in multiple majors, as well as illustrators, fashion designers, photographers and other young artists and audiences.

I can provide my students the best opportunities to perform monthly in front of other professional musicians and artists, get the most useful inspirations on not only the music performance, but also the musical comprehension and imaginations.

About Jinglin
I'm a graduate from both the Mannes College for Music in Piano Performance, and Parsons School for Design for Fashion Design.

Other than the various awards I have won, I am the founder of a popular music & artistic organization in New York City, which aims to provide top young musicians and artists from top music schools, such as Juiliard, Manhattan and Mannes, to share ideas with each other and to inspire audiences to play / show something as well.

I myself as an active pianist, has performed all over the world -
Carnegie Hall in New York City, Palais Miller von Aichholz in Vienna, Concerts in Dresden and Berlin, International Academy of Music in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana in Italy, a Second Class Award from the 16th Hong Kong - Asian Piano Competition in China and so forth.

As a passionate artist, I do not limit my imaginat
ion and creativity as there are unlimited types of languages, formats of art, ways of self-expressions and no one speaks exactly the same to another. For instance, Schoenberg designed his playing cards in private and I went to Parsons and designed my fashion garments on the back of Mannes, eventually I got both my piano concert and my fashion show done together - they were soon exposed by editors from more than ten mainstream medias in China.

As a reliable piano educator, I would teach not only the piano playing techniques and music theory, but also encourages my students to explore their imaginations and self expressions. I am the teacher you should probably expect to bring you / your child to various piano concerts and competitions, but probably not to the level examinations. My goal in education is to inspire students to keep the classical music playing, to be a creative artist and a unique treasure in the world.

Teaching style: Strict, patient, effective and could be a little fun.
Topics: Basic Music Theory, Piano playing techniques and performing tips; Music analysis and "language translations”; a little about life.

Hello! My name is Diana and I am an accomplished classical guitarist and pianist living in Brooklyn, New York. My experience has been established through a decade of private instruction under renown classical guitarist Dr. Lynn McGrath and pianist Stephen Montoya. I studied music, theory, and foreign language at the University of New Mexico and studied classical guitar at the North Carolina School for the Arts as one of the youngest students admitted at the age of 17. As a high school student I participated and competed in festivals across the U.S. including the Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) and with masterclass instruction from renowned guitarists and composers, David Russell and Ana Vidovic.

Within 10 years of dedicated study, I have been honored with awards of excellence from the National Honors Society of Guitar and recogniz

I recently relocated to NYC from New Orleans where I taught private music lessons to children and young adults and immersed myself in the city of soul to study jazz music. Most recently I spent my summer abroad teaching piano lessons in Spanish to children in Spain. In addition to my solo and duet performances I have taught private music lessons since the age of sixteen with a mission to inspire aspiring musicians as a music educator and bring a life-long love of music to my students!
