I have been playing and performing on piano since I was 10!!!!I am a string teacher of 35 years. I also conduct an orchestra of 6-13 year olds at Manhattan School of music . I am also a teacher of chamber music and can coach groups in their homes as well. I play, piano, cello, violin ,bass and viola. I have studied privately on all instruments and include music theory with my lessons. I have two masters degrees and permanent certification in NY and NJ. I believe that students need to love the music and enjoy their own levels of skill and success. I also teach all kinds of music and can teach students how to write music on their computers using Finale. I write my own arrangements for orchestra and can write ANY song you may wish to play ,no matter what level you are. My motto is:if it isn't fun ,why do it"?
