Private Piano Teacher

Music is a beautiful language! I love helping others discover that beauty and express themselves through it.

I teach beginning piano for children and teens. Lessons will begin with an assessment of your personal skill level, and lesson plans will be based on what you hope to achieve. My students learn proper terminology, fingering techniques, theory, and musicality. They will receive basic knowledge of music and be able to apply it on the keys.

My goal is for students to come away from each lesson with new knowledge and skills and to have fun while learning!

I studied with Bennie for several years with the goal of improving my improvisational skills and hand independence. I improved in both areas significantly and am much stronger player. Bennie can push you to a very high level and he stays very engaged between lessons for questions, feedback and additional support. He even attended my performance shows and offered feedback. My only regret is that my day job obligations, available practice time and personal learning speed did not allow a greater lesson frequency.

I couldn't ask for a better teacher. Bennie has the talent and experience to help anyone trying to either learn from scratch or improve their current skill level. Due to the fact that I travel quite a bit with my business I used the holiday season to get a refresher course and Bennie was the right teacher for this. He gave me more in 5 lessons then I could have gotten from anyone else if I had 20 lessons. Unfortunately, I travel a lot for my business and I can't commit to a regular lesson schedule.

My approach to teaching involves developing a comprehensive understanding of what one is doing while playing, rather than just learning a couple of songs, or relying solely on your muscle memory, you will be able to explain what you are doing from a theoretical standpoint.

Without getting too heavy with the use of technical terms, I will teach you to see the underlying threads that apply to all styles of music and encourage you to begin making these types of connections yourself.
This is an important skill to develop early so that as you progress you can begin to teach yourself develop your own unique stylistic approaches to music!

After studying at Laguardia High school for the Performing Arts, I attended McGill University in Montreal where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Jazz Piano Performance.

If you study with me you will be able to expand your knowledge of:
-Music Theory
-Harmony
-Piano technique
-Ear Training
-Sight Reading
-Composition
-Improvisation

About Chris

Born and raised in downtown Manhattan, I have studied music for over 15 years now. When I was about 8 years old I started studying classical piano, and to be perfectly honest, it was like pulling teeth to get me to play. The repetitious nature of learning classical etude after etude wore down upon

Chris is a phenomenal piano instructor! He is extremely talented and can play different kinds of music- such an inspiration. He is very patient as my daughter and myself are beginners. He immediately picked up on what kind of music my daughter is into and has her play pieces that interests her and makes her happy (which also means she will practice more) I highly recommend Chris!

I am very, very pleased with the lessons I have taken with Joshua Hey. He is warm and personable, and his love for his art is infectious. He models his lessons to my level of ability, needs, and areas of interest. I find that his responses to my work are both carefully considered and fun to hear. Joshua brings examples of music to my lessons that relate to my work, something that I very much appreciate. I leave my lessons feeling excited and eager to get back to my piano and computer—which, by the way, is my preference: Joshua has told me several times that handwritten scores are fine.
Jon-Jon
Josh is a very informative and nice teacher. If you want to learn how to compose music I strongly recommend him.
Andrea
Josh provided music composition instruction for my two sons, ages 10 and 12. He worked with both kids on composing songs for their different instruments, guitar and violin, and was able to work with both children in the same lesson. He was able to engage them in a conversation about music and their musical interests. The boys described Josh as someone who "offered constructive criticism and gave us fun activities while explaining things in a way that we would understand. It helped me understand how to take an inspiration and make it into music."
