About Arielle-Khrystiana P.

My students and students' parents have praised me for my musicianship, patience, and compassion. I am an operatic soprano and musical theater musician, thus making me a diverse and well-rounded instructor. In voice lessons, we will focus on vocalizes, excellent technique, theory, and appropriate repertoire. I take a different approach to every student, realizing that not everyone learns the same, and that what may work for one student will not work for everyone, so I plan each unique lesson differently to suit your goals and needs. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from UB. I love working with all kinds of students and cannot wait to meet you! Let’s start your musical journey!

Jonathan, my 12-year-old stepson had his first lesson yesterday with Arielle. I was very impressed with how she handled his shyness. She was very positive and motivational with him!

My son loves taking music lessons so much he is now learning two instruments. I am always in awe when I hear him play. Arielle has done an amazing job teaching my son in an atmosphere he enjoys.

I am very happy with Arielle. She knows how to transition her teaching skills for adults.

I'm a former music major and I have performed with several bands throughout my life on guitar, harmonica, and vocals. I recently decided to take up an instrument that I studied for a very short time as a child - violin. I've had lessons for about six months now with Arielle, and will continue to study with her for some time. She is an excellent teacher, and at a very reasonable cost, especially compared to others.
She teaches every single detail of what I should know about playing violin, supplied a really helpful textbook to me, and each lesson is great fun, not dull work for a beginner. I really appreciate that.
If someone is expecting to have an effective and pleasing learning experience, just go ahead and work with Arielle. It is absolutely worth the time and effort.

Arielle is a wonderful teacher and takes into consideration the different learning styles for her students. She makes you feel very comfortable and we also even laugh together. She is very respcectful and appreciative of different vocal styles and genres and caters different vocal techniques to your personal style. Can't say enough nice things about her.

Ari is sweet and kind, honest and goal-setting. My former teacher told me I could be on "American Idol." While this is nice to hear, I felt like something was lacking from the lessons. I went to Ari and she told me that although I had a beautiful voice, I had to work on my breath support. We have set realistic goals together and now I feel much better about my technique!! Thanks Ari!

Arielle is a fantastic teacher. She truly listens to me and to my unique needs as a voice student. She customizes every vocalese for my individual sound. They aren't just generic "vocal warm-ups." My voice is healthier than it has ever been.

Excellent string teacher. Really helped me with my NYSSMA solo and was willing to help me with other repertoire too.

Arielle works extremely well with children. My daughter is shy, but she looks forward to her lesson every week. She also loves the studio recitals.

Ari has a beautiful voice and she has really helped me with my breath support and overall vocal technique to become a better singer.

Wonderful results, and a lot of fun!

If you're looking for someone to start the violin with, look no further than Arielle D. She can start you from the ground up, even if touché never read or played music a day in your life. She will try different approaches if the standard book stuff isn't working. She's also great with scheduling, very easygoing with make-up lessons. She also made me feel very comfortable and relaxed during my lessons.
