David is a very skilled drummer and a very enthusiastic teacher. In lessons, he seems to like to split time between practicing rudiments and learning to play different rhythms on the set. He is also exceptionally patient and supportive with my 9-year-old, highly distractible daughter. David is very positive, pointing out things that are going well and interesting rhythms that they discover. I am really glad we found David--he is an excellent teacher and I love watching my daughter learn so much about music!

I teach beginners to intermediate. The goal is to teach them how to read music and rhythm and develop good piano technique. My background is mostly in the Classical genre, however the goal is to become accomplished so that you can play anything.

About Gary
Dear Prospective Student,

My name is Gary. I started out playing the Bagpipe in High School as we were the "Highlanders" and had a bagpipe band as part of the marching band. I competed in solo competitions played my way to the top. As I will be 60 this year, I have been playing for 45 years and teaching full time for the last 20 years. I am very fortunate to be making a good living doing work that I love to do.

You need 3 things to learn the bagpipe. The first thing that you don't need is a set of bagpipes to get started. That purchase happens with most of my students between the 8th and the 12th month of lessons. My average student will spend between $1500 and $2000 on their pipes. Start saving now. The only thing that you need are a Practice Chanter, a book and 30 minutes with me once a week. I have the Practice Chant
ers and Books. Don't buy anything until we meet. To get started book 4 lessons with me. If you have any questions please feel free to email me through this website. I look forward to working with you.

If you are a beginner I will teach you the basics and the fundamentals of music including: notation, rhythm, sightseeing and theory.

About Raphaelita
Welcome!

My name is Raphaelita and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2007 and have loved helping my students find passion for piano, learn to understand music theory and play any piece they desire.

I went to Rowan University and earned a degree in Public Relations in 2007. However I've studied the piano for over 20 years and I've taken 3 years of college classes including, music theory, concert piano, music history, music composition and pedagogy. I'm currently working on my performance program to be accepted in a piano pedagogy degree program at a University.

My students would say that I'm fun yet strict when it comes to teaching piano.

It is my goal as a teacher to help your child reach his/her full potential in understanding the language of music. My approach to each child will be differen
t, depending on learning style, personality, attention span, and personal goals in taking lessons. But in all cases, I want my students to be able to read music and enjoy practicing every day.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Here are some of the many benefits of taking piano lessons:

♦ Piano lessons help children learn how to stay focused and achieve goals.
♦ It develops higher emotional intelligence.
♦ Music can increases self-esteem and confidence in students.
♦ Attention, memory, and focus are developed through musical education.
♦ Music improves language tasks, mathematical tasks, and processing tasks.
♦ Academic achievement improves.
♦ It assists with developing teamwork and cooperation skills.
♦ Learning piano as a family can strengthen family bonds.

Philadelphia, PA

Experienced concert pianist, teacher, and music director available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I enjoy teaching in all levels, and my work experience has included working with special needs children and teaching adults while an Adjunct Faculty member at New York University’s Steinhardt School. Lessons are catered to maximizing the students interests, passions, and strengths. All students have the opportunity to perform in two annual studio recitals for free. Simply put, my goal is to help each student become the best musician they can be.

About Erik
Pianist, music director, and vocal coach, Erik was born and raised in Eastern Washington state. He has been heard all across the northwest and beyond, in cities including Seattle, Portland, Tacoma, NYC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Houston, and internationally in Prague and Salzburg. Erik has been a guest artist at Whitman College, Portland State University, The Kairos Chamber Music Lyceum, California State University Summer Arts, the West Seattle Symphony, and the Gig-Harbor Peninsula Symphony Orchestra. In addition to performing, Erik’s passion for teaching has led him to be an adjudicator for various festivals including the Washington Sonata-Sonatina Festival and the Washington Regional Solo and Ensemble Festival.

Erik is currently the Music Director for the National Tour of Kander and Ebb's timeless musical Cabaret. This produc
tion will be on tour until May 21st all across North America. Broadway.com's review of the opening night in Nashville praised the musicianship of the show, "Musical director Erik Flaten's musicians are impressive in their dexterity: At one moment, they are providing rich interpretations of the memorable John Kander score, while perhaps at the next they are playing denizens of the Kit Kat Klub or neighborhood thugs, wastrels and other folks of questionable repute. Flaten and his band are given their own richly deserved moments in the spotlight at the top of Act Two and the music director himself is given the well-earned final bow at the end of the curtain call.

Newly relocating to the East Coast, Erik is highly sought after for his collaborative work with both instrumentalists and vocalists. He is comfortable in all musical styles and genres, and has an extensive knowledge of music history and theory.

Students of Erik have the opportunities to perform in studio recitals and workshops.

I enjoyed my first harp lesson with Liudmila so much! She is a very sweet lady, and a very patient, knowledgable, and professional teacher. She taught me the correct posture and hand positions at the first lesson. I was struggeling with the hand positions first, but she didn't mind to explain them to me over and over again. She also plaid some tunes to me, and I could tell that she is an awsome harpist. I am very glad that I can learn from her. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn from a professional harpist.

Dr. Tzu-Hwa Ho began playing the piano at the age of four. At fourteen, she made her concerto debut in the City Hall of Salerno, Italy, and at sixteen, she gave her first solo recital in Taipei (Taiwan).

She studied piano with, chronologically, Alexander Sung, Alla Voskoboynikova, Alan Chow, and Jack Winerock; collboartive piano with Elizabeth Buccheri and Alan Darling. She has performed in international festivals such as Festival Pablo Casals (France), Conservatoire Américain de Fontainebleau (France), the Dartington International Summer Music School (England), and the International Piano Seminar in Obidos (Portugal).

Mrs. Ho is the best teacher I have ever had. I am in my 60s and I have had many years of experience working with several teachers, some were good, but never to the level of Mrs. Ho.
She is a professional and high level concert pianist, who is also a fantastic pedagogue, not to mention she is also patient and super nice.
I believe that anybody at any level could benefit enormously from taking lessons with her.

Both of my daughters love to sing. We signed up for lessons so they could learn their favorite pop songs; one of my daughters also took piano. They've learned how to hit notes easier and how to properly warm up; Lia is great at finding fun ways to keep them engaged while also still learning. The combination of piano and voice for my youngest has been really valuable. I highly recommend Lia for your lessons!

Princeton, NJ

I have been playing piano for 13 years and I have over 3 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I am able to teach all levels of piano: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Lessons will be catered to your needs, learning style, and aspirations. I believe ear training, theory, and sightreading are all important to the development of a musician, so these aspects will be also integrated into lessons to help develop musicianship. Finally, it's important to remember that music should always be fun! I love music and I hope to bring my passion for music to others.

About Gloria
I graduated from Princeton University in June 2018. I majored in math with minors in piano performance and computer science, and I am now pursuing conducting as a career path. I've been playing piano for 13 years. At Princeton, I was enrolled in the Certificate Program for Piano Performance, which is reserved for the top 2-4 pianists in each year. At the end of my time at Princeton, I played a 60 minute senior recital comprising works by Prokofiev, Debussy, and Frank Bridge.

Also at Princeton, I was Music Director and President of the Princeton Pianists Ensemble, which brings together advanced pianists at Princeton to play multi-piano music. During my administrative role, I organised 20 hours of rehearsal per week for each of 5 sold-out concerts for audiences of 300-800 people.

As a conductor, I have conducted the Princeton Univer
sity Glee Club and the chamber choir Contrapunctus XIV. I have also conducted the premiere of five new works and one US premiere.

I have been teaching and tutoring for over three years, in various subjects as math, physics, piano, music theory, and SAT prep, including working as a Teaching Assistant for the Princeton University math department for three years. I have taught music at all levels of experience.

I believe that a well-rounded musical education (theory, history, performance, composition) enhances one's experience of music in all areas. I absolutely love classical music and I am keen to spread this passion as much as I can.
