Teaching since:

Hey there everyone! My name is Dennis Mantilla, a pianist, composer, and producer. I have a lot of experience in teaching piano and even theology. I have been teaching private piano classes since around the year 2003. I also did teach students in a group for about 1 year. As far as my music education, at first I taught myself everything in music at the age of 13 with books, videos, and practicing the piano myself. I did study music theory, dictation, sight-reading and more at two colleges known as Queensborough Community College and Queens College both located at New York City. I also studied piano in private lessons under an excellent Russian teacher. Although I did not receive any music degree I still have a lot of experience and knowledge in music. One of my passions is to compose Ballads and produce Trance music. I take my teaching seriously but I am also a patient and fun teacher. If you want to learn the basics in music theory or the basics in piano playing then I am the guy for you. If you want to learn from an honest hard working teacher then I am the teacher for you. Thank you all for reading and much success in your lessons and life. Take care everyone!

If interested in hearing my compositions then feel free to visit my website. Most of my Ballads are in Spanish but there is one in English with an excellent guitar solo I made on the keyboard. Also remember I am not a professional singer or great singer, it is the music I write that makes it good. Hope you all enjoy!

My own composition but the piano solo version
My own composition but the piano solo version of this Spanish song. It means "Because It Is You"
Another piece by Christopher Lanz, sounds more like a lullaby but then changes.
Another piece by Christopher Lanz, more of a sad feeling.

Since the first lesson that Mr. Dennis taught my daughters a piano lesson, I knew he would be a good instructor for them. He was a very patient, responsible, organized, and a honest teacher. He managed time very well. I can tell that he has a huge passion on teaching others. I really recommend him as a great mentor for piano classes.
