Patricia was an excellent teacher! Very knowledgeable and patient. It was my first time taking on the piano and she was very helpful in every step. I felt I learned a lot during our lessons and she would also give you great tips on how to practice on your own, which was key for me. She was also very flexible, which I appreciated as work got in the way of our scheduled times on occasion. Highly recommend!!! You will not be disappointed.

I am a college level jazz musician.
My primary instruments are jazz guitar and upright bass.
Growing up I have always wanted to sing but never could find a qualified teacher.

Luckily, after extensive research online for vocal teachers I discovered Kara.
I have been taking lessons with her for a while now and she's wonderful.
I always have many questions for her in my lessons and she always has a knowledgable response.

I feel like I'm progressing and finally learning how to sing properly with someone who knows their stuff.

I would highly recommend studying with her.

About Hadi
Since 2009, I have completed over 600 public music performances as a part of a band and as a solo keyboardist. I have performed at over 50 different venues in Philadelphia, Wilmington, New York City, Baltimore and New Jersey area. I mainly play piano, electric piano and Hammond organ. As member of a band, I have played Funk, New Orleans, Classic Rock, Blues, Jazz and Fusion. As a solo pianist, my playing style is more into Jazz easy listening (swing, bossanova, foxtrot), Pop/Rock Standard, Blues/New Orleans easy listening and ragtime.

I have been playing keys for over 20 years and graduated from Berklee College of Music with a major in Jazz Composition and Music Production & Engineering. I have taught students, teenagers, adult and small children as young as 5 years old. My teaching is focused on stylistic piano playing (chord playing,
improvisation, transposition) for students over 10 year old with at least 1 year continuous piano training. I certainly welcome piano training for beginners as early as preparatory level. Digital piano and digital Hammond organ are available at my house for piano tutoring should you choose to come to my location.

My graduate study was in Acoustics. I am an acoustical consultant and also an audio engineer. I specialized in room acoustics and electro-acoustics (loudspeaker design). I have a studio at home and open to audio tutoring (recording and mixing) request as well.

I am originally from Indonesia and have already published two books. I can help with Indonesian language tutoring for English native speakers. I have done many seminars/workshops both in English and Indonesian.

I welcome tutoring requests in Music (Piano, Composition/Arranging), Music Theory, Music Production or other Audio/Acoustics related topics.

Working with Hadi is a true pleasure. He has an immense amount of knowledge and experience to boot. Hadi is extremely easy to work with and has tons of patience while in the lesson. He has a keen ability to analyze where you are as a player and build a personalized plan to reach your goals. I highly recommend him as a teacher for pursuing jazz piano as well as other contemporary styles.

Chloe K - February 7, 2018
Mr. Hadi is a very patient and knowledgeable piano teacher. My son definitely enjoys learning piano and music theory with him. I can see that Mr. Hadi keeps a progress chart for each of his students,. My son is just a beginner level student, but he still gets personalized content from Mr. Hadi.

My goal is not to show off my son's piano skill at family gathering, but to encourage him appreciate and enjoy music. Thanks to Mr. Hadi for helping me reaching this goal.

Velisia C - February 11, 2018
It was my first piano learning lesson, and Hadi is the greatest teacher. As an adult, I thought it will be hard to understand the material but Hadi gave a very good explanation. Quick responses, and absolutely great value for a private lesson. He is so patient. Worth it!!!

Chris D - February 23, 2018
Hadi S is an excellent teacher, and an even better player. As a teacher, he's patient, knowledgable, and provides excellent advice that helps you develop your skills. And as a player, he is as good as it gets. He can play just about anything. Best was that he takes the time to speak with you and ask what kind of atmosphere you want to create with music, and then does exactly what was asked.

Emily B - March 2, 2018
Lessons are easy to understand. Very good at explaining what you are doing wrong and how to fix your mistakes. Music choice is also always fun making practicing more enjoyable.

Hadi has been a fantastic instructor for my 15 year old son, who was a complete beginner. Under Hadi's patient guidance and thoughtful plan, he is playing well and really enjoys the lessons. I would highly recommend Hadi to anyone regardless of experience level. He has expert knowledge but can talk to and work with novices to get them playing right away.

Great first session. Paula was engaged and prepared and more importantly was able to keep my daughter engaged. She familiarized herself with where my daughter is in her Spanish studies in school and talked about what she struggles with and what she is more comfortable with. A plan was set moving forward with the material that will be covered. I am looking forward to her next lesson.
