About Sharon
Sharon knew at a very young age that the arts were her life and doesn't remember a time when she wasn't singing, dancing and acting. She began her professional singing and acting career at the age of six years old and has performed at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. She plays the piano and is a versatile musician with a strong foundation in the classical method that really rocks!!
Sharon grew up in Brooklyn, NY and has trained with some of New York City's premier voice, piano and acting teachers. Sharon majored in Theater and graduated cum laude with honors in theater.
She is a certified
public school theater teacher and has worked with hundreds of performing arts students. As a private instructor, she has guided her students in piano, voice, and acting.
Sharon is a fun and innovative teacher. Her wealth of experiences has made her a well-rounded teacher. She has a great sense of humor with a serious commitment to her art and her students. A winning combination for you!

I could not be more happier with choosing Sharon as my daughter's instructor. Her expertise in the subject she's teaching is outstanding. More importantly, my daughter loves her. She comes home bragging to everyone how wonderful her instructor is. Looking forward so many more lessons in the future.

Bill is the best teacher around. His extensive performance experience makes all the difference - he knows every tip, trick and nuance in the book that changes every piece from just a set of notes to a performance of color, grace and subtlety. His knowledge of the guitar repertoire never fails to amaze. And he's wonderfully patient with everyone - you don't have to play like Bream or Russell

About John
I have adopted the philosopher Bennett Reimer’s beliefs. He believed in music for music sake. In other words: Music was an art-form to be admired and not always performance based. Reimer believed in music literacy and wanted every child to understand and know how to read basic music notation. Music is also an interpersonal and multicultural art-form designed to excite and engage all cultures. If you can link any and all subjects to music, you will be able to grasp more students. Knowing how sound waves are made and the history of the piano, is just as important as knowing and demonstrating sin
ging or playing instruments. My own philosophy on performance is, “Not only is it necessary, it is a necessity.”

John truly went above and beyond to help me prepare for my auditions. He is the reason I have been offered so many roles. John is the Swiss army knife of instructors. He is an all-in-one coach with a fully decked out studio that I was also able to take advantage of. Every standing ovation I have received is thanks to mister John Jannis. If you're not using John for whatever musical needs you have, you're making a foolish mistake.
