About John
Greetings! I am a teacher who believes in the importance of understanding you and your needs so that we can accomplish, as a team, your specific goals for learning to play the piano - whether that means playing a Beethoven sonata, playing by ear, or creating your own music! I am a classically trained pianist with a Master's degree from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. I have studied with some of the most famous pianists in the world today including Menahem Pressler, Gabriel Chodos and Livia Rev. I also have a lot of experience in the world outside of classical piano, which informs my teaching and enables me to offer your a much more well-rounded approach to not only the piano, but to understanding and enjoying music itself!

John is the best piano teacher I've ever had. I studied with him for about a year and a half, and my musicality and ability to play the piano improved so much. He taught me techniques with logical explanations, and musical expressions with history behind the music. His lessons made me happy to see a whole new world behind the music we'd been learning. He is a very experienced and wonderful musician and teacher. I highly recommend him!

After taking piano lessons from a family friend for several years growing up, I decided to pick piano back up in college. Thanks to John, I was able to do much more than that. We worked together for about a year and a half, and in this time John not only helped me become a better pianist than I had ever hoped, but he opened my eyes to expressive possibilities in music that I had never been exposed to. I used to think of a piece of music as nothing more than a series of notes to be played in order, at the right tempo, the right volume, etc. John helped me see that even the most simple melody contains an infinite number of possibilities. He taught me skills that allowed me to begin to harness these possibilities and to find my own sound and style. After working with John, I feel like I hear all music in a new way, and my love for music has never been greater. To sum up, John is an expert pianist and an even better teacher. I cannot recommend him highly enough to anybody, at any level, who has a desire to learn more about music and about the piano.

About Lauren
My passions include collaborating with new musicians, playing music of all genres, working with composers on contemporary compositions, and traveling the country and world to play concerts.

I perform regularly at venues such as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center, as well as tour the North and South America, Europe, and Asia with my string quartet, the Mivos Quartet. I received my BM and MM from Eastman School of Music with academic Distinction and a degrees in Violin Performance and Literature.

As I live on the Upper East Side, scheduling/travel is flexible for me and easy to coordinate around my students' schedules. If there is a preferred lesson for your child not listed as "available" please feel free to inquire directly - we will find a time that works!

*** Lesson Details ***
Though experienced teaching
pre-K through collegiate levels and beyond, I specialize in teaching intermediate- and advanced-level students. In addition to weekly lessons, my students perform solos in recitals and are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular ensembles.

Lessons generally focus on four major areas: scales, etudes, ensemble parts (orchestra and chamber music), and solo repertoire. Music theory and ear-training activities supplement work in these areas. A portion of lesson-time is also devoted to preparing students for entrance and seating auditions, when applicable.

As a teacher, I re-evaluate and adapt my teaching methods on-the-spot to introduce and reinforce concepts in a patient, enthusiastic, and creative manner tailored to each student. In addition to equipping my students with proper violin technique and nurturing their musical integrity, I am committed to empowering and assisting my students to develop their communication skills and confidence while fostering a lasting curiosity for learning and a genuine love for the imaginative and expressive capabilities of music.

All of my students learn how to read music from the beginning of their playing. For addressing technique with young kids, I use fun pneumonic devices such as "pizza box hand," "flamingo arm," and "umbrella fingers," to help my students remember, identify, and visualize proper hand, arm, and finger placement. We practice note names and rhythm through singing and memorization games. With these activities, students practice at home on their own and advance weekly between lessons while developing a love for playing the violin.

In addition to my private studio, I teach at The Chamber Music Center of New York and am artist-in-residence at The Walden School.

Please contact TakeLessons to hear more about my teaching philosophy!

I teach students how to read music and rhythms with quick effectiveness! This enables students to be independent during their weekly practicing and supplements their weekly progress.

Lauren is an excellent teacher for adult students!

At the age of 54 I decided to purchase a violin and learn to play. I found Lauren Cauley through Takelessons.com and could not be more pleased with her!! She has taught me so much in my first four weeks. She's patient with me and encourages me when I get discouraged with my play. She is quick to answer the numerous questions I have. She is an extremely talented musician with a talent for teaching. She pushes me in my weekly assignments and ensures I've mastered one level before we move to the next. Thanks Lauren!!

About Gio
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studi
o Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

About Amalia
I have 20 years of cello experience in performing and teaching throughout the world with more than 15 years abroad experience (France, England, USA, Canada). I am bilingual in French and English and can teach in either language. I have just moved from Paris where I taught private lessons at the American School of Paris.

Over the years I have performed various styles of music asides from my classical training, including pop, electronic music, and hip-hop.

I have great experience with both children and adults, exercising great patience, energy and resourcefulness in creating individual lesson plans to encourage my students and keep them motivated in learning and advancing. Lessons should always be fun and rewarding!

I am very proud and happy to say that many of my students have gone on far with the cello, some on to pursue cell
o professionally and enrolling in conservatory schools to build their careers as cellists.

Great instructor. Focuses on the basics and provides a lot of encouragement which helps. Also, allows student to decide what they'd like to learn and allows you to select the type of music you are most interested in.

Highly recommended!

About Elena
Hi, my name is Elena. I love music and would be happy to teach anyone who will in some way benefit and fall in love with the piano.

I began playing piano in St. Petersburg, Russia and continued (from age 10) studying at The Juilliard School in New York City. I studied at The Juilliard for 14 years -- ultimately earning my BA and MA degrees. I worked with some of the world's most renowned pianists and teachers -- Nadia Reisenberg, Adele Marcus, William Masselos, Jacob Lateiner, Vladimir Viardo, Dorothy DeLay, Harvey Shapiro and Tossy Spivakovsky.

I am a concert pianist and a recording artist. I have performed throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, and Russia. I have performed solo recitals, been a soloist with numerous orchestras, and have played many different kinds of Chamber Music. I have collaborated with many contemporary comp
osers who wrote dedicated their music to me.

My teaching career began at The Juilliard School where I became an Assistant to my Pre-College teacher at 18 years old. Since then, I have taught numerous students preparing them for performances, auditions for specialized schools, national and international competitions and auditions to some of the most prestigious conservatories in the world.

I am very strict but I never yell and try to have as much fun as possible during the lessons. I look forward to meeting you!!!!!!!

About Walter
I am a professional musician, composer, and educator. I graduated from Michigan State University with my B.M. and M.M. in Jazz Studies. In my time at MSU I had the opportunity to interact with over 200 students from all around the state of Michigan. As a trumpet player, I specialize in teaching brass but also have extensive experience teaching improvisation, music theory, composition, and arranging.

I have been performing on trumpet since 2010, in many musical settings. Currently I am on staff with the Dr. Phillips Center Jazz Orchestra in Orlando, Florida in the trumpet section. Additionally, I am the lead trumpet fellow in the Gathering Orchestra in Detroit, MI. I have recorded professionally with various groups including The Verve Pipe.

My focus as a teacher is to give students the tools to play the instrument without incurring any
bodily harm as brass can often be taxing. I prefer to take steps to build solid fundamentals that make playing trumpet an enjoyable experience. I am comfortable teaching various styles including Salsa, Jazz, R&B, Funk, Folk, and Country.
