Breeana is an excellent and talented teacher of Spanish. She is very patient,
creative and professional. She is genuinely excited about teaching. and makes
learning Spanish fun. she uses very creative methods to make the learning process both stimulating and interesting. As a student, I really look forward to
my lessons with her. I had Spanish in high school and found it to be
boring and hard to grasp. Now, however, I can't wait for my next lesson with her.
Thanks Breeana ,

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.

Charmel G - March 27, 2018
Hadi is very personable and knowledgeable. He helps my daughter feel comfortable and confident with her skills and abilities. He is also very accommodating. I'm glad to have found Hadi....

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.

I've been under Danni's guidance for a little while now and it's been amazing in every way possible. She's very professional at what she does, very knowledgable in her field of studies and very intelligent. She's able to pin point my mistakes with great accuracy, come up with a solution that's easy to approach and correct me on the very spot. Playing the piano was never this fun before taking her classes. I'd recommend Danni to everyone who's looking for a great piano teacher.

I have taught school children and adults during my tutoring career, and it has always been a fruitful experience for both the students and myself. Indeed, imparting my knowledge upon students is always a worthwhile feeling.
Success stories from past students with regard to achieving high marks on their French and Arabic language tests has given me the confidence to believe that anyone is capable of learning a new language.

Dunia was very organized and had a lesson plan for each session that I took with her. We conjugated verbs, worked on conversational French, learned how to count, among other things. She was also very patient with me and let me figure out things by myself without interjecting all the time. I highly recommend her!

Social skills and a well- rounded, worldly perspective are the main things needed to create and maintain unique relationships. I possess this and more through my affinity for travel and my interest in other people and cultures. In addition to English, I speak Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, a little French and plan on learning Hebrew and Mandarin as well.

I am the oldest of three younger brothers and definitely possess a maternal instinct that I very much utilize when I teach. I love working with all age groups and watching as my students improve. I earned my TEFL in Madrid and subsequently taught there. That experience was invaluable and I keep those fond memories close.
