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.

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.

Do you want to play classical piano music, rock keyboard, pop music, jazz? You are in the right place!

I choose and adapt songs according to the age, interests, goals, and skills of the students. I also use the songs to teach different musical concepts: intervals, progressions, scales, chords. Every student is different, so I don't use any specific method.

La clase puede ser en español.

I love Roberta. She is so knowledgeable, professional and friendly...a wonderful combination to have in a teacher. She is patient and thorough. I would highly recommend her.
Beverly
Roberta is everything you would want in a teacher. She is exceptionally talented herself and knows how to share her knowledge with others. She is especially very kind and nurturing in an environment which could be quite intimidating for a beginner like me. You can tell she truly enjoys teaching and gets excited to see her pupil learn. I have learned so much in a short time.

Jake
Dr. C has the unique ability to make his lessons fun and profound. As someone who didn’t have a formal classical music background, he has consistently encouraged me and has intensified my creativity and curiosity by exposing me to music and ideas that are now indispensable to me. He is passionate, funny, witty, and undoubtedly the most valuable instructor I’ve ever had.
Dr. Daniel Plante
Dr. C. is a longtime trusted colleague with a sterling resume and excellent reputation among his students at both Queens College and Mannes College. Having taught a good number of his former students, I can attest to both the preparation they received from him but their respect and admiration they hold. Much Recommended.
Kristina
Dr. Eric C. is one of the most influential people in my life, and I have the honor of being coached by him. His attention to detail, intuition as a coach, and professor is truly one that is unmatched. He has the ability to show you something in a different light, which opens
up doors for you that you didn't know existed before. With his guidance, compassion, complete joy of this art form, and incredible knowledge, I was able to perform very difficult pieces. He always works diligently,
to ensure that no stone is left unturned, and every detail of the music is conveyed in how it is intended.

Any questions I have are always met with the utmost clarity. I appreciate greatly that he takes the time to ensure I understand the “why" of what I'm learning. He has a remarkable way knowing how to break
things down in a way that I always remember and am able to process, which has helped me immensely. My knowledge and understanding is always
expanding because of him. During my undergrad at the Aaron Copland School of Music, he was my theory and ear training professor. He goes above and beyond for all of his students and will always make sure that
they understand every detail in what they are learning. Any fears I ever had in learning the "challenging" concepts of music have been taken away
because of him, and now I welcome the challenges that come my way.

He has taught me how to truly listen to music, and dive into the depths of it, which in turn has given me an appreciation of this art form that can only be explained as transcendent. No matter how much knowledge I
acquire on my path as a musician, I will forever be in total awe of this art form. My gratitude for him is immense. "Before anything, you are a
musician first."-Dr. C.

Ashot is so patient , yet firm with his students. He is also a great psychologist and knows how to inspire each student.

Mr Cooper is an excellent teacher who is very nice and humble to my kids. My kids enjoy learning piano with him. Never seen them this excited to learn music.
