I'm an experienced piano teacher that is passionate about music and I enjoy sharing the love of music with my students. I teach all genres of music...from Bach to rock. I specialize in transcribing popular music, therefore I am able to customize the music for all abilities. Though I teach in a traditional manner (reading music, using the pedals, counting, proper fingering, music theory, etc) I teach my students to play REAL music, NOT someone else's lesson plans from a book.

About David C.

I have been teaching the piano for 35 years. Though I have been classically trained and have a love of the Masters, I am also a fan of Progressive Rock and Top 40 music. 11 years ago I formed a virtual band (Virtual Journey Band) and have been working with musicians worldwide. We recorded and post all our music online. Additionally, I am a composer and compose contemporary pieces, some of which have been used in independent films.

I have experience teaching all levels of piano students classical and popular music as well as show tunes. My forte is rearranging and transcribing this music to match the level of a student. I have a library of over 2 thousand different pieces that I have done throughout the years and it continues to grow.

I also have 25 years of experience preparing my students for the NYSSMA Festivals (New York State School Music Association).
