Our kids have loved their lessons with Dr Alex. He’s been working with them for two years now, and they have learned and grown so much. He has been extremely flexible and respectful over the past year with Covid guidelines - even hosting virtual lessons and recitals. He adjusts his teaching to each of our children’s different learning styles, makes it fun, and keeps them engaged. We highly recommend Dr. Alex and love working with him.
Mason D.
Alex is very patient and positive. Our nine year old grandson looks forward to the lessons and practices a lot during the week.
Jennifer
Dr. Kostritsa has been a wonderful teacher for my daughters. They have made excellent progress with him over the last two years. His flexibility in allowing my older daughter to select some of her own music really helped with motivation. It's also inspiring that he composes and performs his own music as well.

My goal is to teach students how to actually understand Music, not just play notes. There is something extremely liberating about being able to instantly arrange any song based on an internalized knowledge of the structure of Music (harmony, rhythm, melody, and texture). Whether you want to learn how to play popular tunes by ear, play chords from a lead sheet, or get into advanced jazz harmony and improvisation, my core teaching principles will remain the same. The goal is to learn deeply and internalize, not just memorize notes. My specialty is in jazz, arranging, and composing. I have released 4 albums and had over 125k streams on Spotify. There is nothing I would love more than to help you along your journey with Music and equip you with tools that will last a lifetime!

About Trent

I can't get enough of Music. Whether it be playing Stevie Wonder covers with a funk bank in a college bar, performing solo jazz piano for private events, or staying up till 3 in the morning on a Tuesday trying to figure out a bassline to my newest composition, there is something about Music that ge

I not only focus on reading, technique and theory but how these subjects relate to the music you listen to.

I believe music is a language and is understood best in context of of what music you enjoy on a daily basis, that way you can play along.

I like to structure my lessons around the student, focusing on their goals and aspirations.

About Miles

Our regular piano teacher was on maternity leave. Miles has covered as a substituted teacher for over 3 months. He was very nice, calm and knowledgeable. We do recommend him. He is a great teacher!
Andrea Z.
Miles was an amazing teacher for me and my son. We both took Piano and Guitar lessons with Miles for close to 2 years and enjoyed every lesson. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to music, can help you focus on the music you want to play and he is just as good with adults as he is with kids! I would highly recommend taking lessons with him and I think he is an amazing teacher

"Mr. Leni B. is second to none. He holds a BA degree in music, piano, composition and conducting from Hunter College, the largest college in The City University of New York and obtains a Diploma from the Conservatoire de Fontainebleau, France, I have no doubt about his talents and expertise. His knowledge is tremendously fabulous. What a true musician he is! As an adult, I wonder if Mr. Leni B. would be patient with me. The answer is yes. He patiently teaches me, and corrects my hands using the Taubman Approach to avoid chronical hand, wrist and muscle injuries. I am incredibly grateful to have him for my piano teacher. His passion and dedication are beyond excellent and have been transferred to me. I have brought home with a lot of inspiration after each lesson. I love his analysis and interpretation of each beautiful piece of music. The atmosphere he creates is lovely, friendly, welcoming and open. It is fun to study under his supervision. His encouragement is another key for me to practice the piano everyday. I am absolutely proud of him. It is even multipled when I have figured out he has more talents than just music and piano which are already amazing. Mr. Leni B. is the best teacher because he teaches from the heart not from the book. He is too good to be true.

I highly recommend Mr. Leni B. to anyone who wants to take piano lessons for fun or seriously."
