Cyril Menendez began her piano studies at the age of three in Havana, Cuba, in a school for talented young musicians with perfect pitch.

In 2018, only three out of 200 pianists were awarded a full scholarship in the Art Institute of Cuba--she was one of them. Until the age of 23, Cyril continued studying piano performance and teaching methods with honors.

During her years of university, she studied under the prestigious piano teacher Teresita Junco, having the opportunity to learn not only piano but teaching methods as well. Inspired by Ms. Junco, in 2008, Cyril began teaching young kids and adults, being her passion for more than a decade.

Cyril has performed with excellent musicians in France, Italy, USA, and Cuba. She has played in several recognized concert halls such as Carnegie Hall, Adrianne Arsht Center, Basilica Menor de San Francisco de Asis, Amadeo Roldán Theater and Mozarteum Concert Hall

I have worked with Cyril for quite some time already, and I can assure she is an amazing pedagogue, a fine artist, awesome performer, creative and knowledgeable teacher, and an excellent human being. I would highly recommend her to whoever would like to really learn music. She can be sweet, but very professional at the same time, and her students just love her! I respect her and admire her very much.

Cyril teaches my kids aged 5 and 6 years old at home with passion and commitment. They both love it and are eager to practice every day. She is the best music teacher we've had so far!

We've had a great experience with Cyril. She is punctual, organized, and professional. My only problem is that she is moving to Florida.

She was great with 5 yo and adult. Very patient, kind, and full of good tips. Definitely will use her again when 5 year old is a little bit more interested in weekly lessons.

Cyril is wonderful with our kids. She is patient and takes great care to make sure they understand what she's teaching them and at the same time, listens to them. She meets each of our children at their own level and I would certainly recommend her as an instructor b

She knows her stuff for sure. And is attentive to picking up the nuances of her students in providing timely keys to help them develop. Fun times!

Cyril was timely and communicative prior to her arrival.
Cyril provided a refreshingly open, simple presentation to the vast material of learning not just the piano, but reading music as well.
I am new to the piano but committed to learning. She recognized and met my level of knowledge and led us logically through steps that allow me a sense of order to this process. She gave me considerable homework that is within my ability to work in preparation for our next meeting. While she found me eager, she gave me just the right quantity to not be overwhelming.
I am more than delighted.

That was an amazing class, she was explaining me how to play correctly and respecting the style. All my sounds were not the best but, she was trying to find the perfection throught the exquisite explanation with her words.
As a pianist is musically awesome!!
I do recommend her for beginners, intermediate levels, and adults with different interests in classical and popular music.

As an adult I was nervous about taking piano lessons - am I too old, will it be too difficult, can I still learn, will I enjoy it or will it be torture? Cyril was amazing! She put me at ease and in a very positive and friendly manner went over what we could achieve together and how I could best use her lessons in learning to play the piano. She provided detailed answers to my questions, gave me appropriate encouragement, and offered friendly suggestions as to how I should practice to get the best results from our time together. The lesson was not hurried and I went away feeling very satisfied that I did the right thing in taking lessons with her. I would recommend her to anyone wishing to learn how to play or to improve their piano playing skills.
