I've been teaching for over 10 years. Though my method differs from student to student I always put a high stress on fun, theory and understanding. I treat any instrument like a toy, a puzzle, meant to be figured out and played with. I teach using a foundation of games and exercises involving basic sight reading, chord theory, scales and improvisation to give my students the best understanding of their instrument that I can. I teach my students not simply how to play the piano, but, more importantly, how to LEARN to play the piano. I'm relaxed, a little goofy, and always patient.

About edward g.

Howdy! I've been teaching music, piano and guitar lessons in groups and privately for over a decade. I grew up in Brooklyn NY and have a degree in Audio Engineering from CCNY.

I've created and ran music and enrichment classes for toddlers, children and people of all ages, in schools and daycare centers across New York City. My aim is to teach my students not just how to play their instrument, but also how to LEARN to play their instrument. Understanding HOW to learn is just as important for our brains as the information we're attempting to absorb. I believe FUN is the root of best learning practices and so I always center my lessons around my student's interests and what would be enjoyed most. My lessons incorporate theory, exercises, ear training, games, and play. Yes.. play.
