I graduated from Berklee College of Music, majoring in Jazz Composition and Music Production and Engineering. My master's was Acoustics. After I finished my graduate study, I published a book in Indonesian language that explains acoustics as a technical field. After few years working in a loudspeaker manufacture as sound system designer and loudspeaker engineer, I published my second book about loudspeaker measurement. I am a native Indonesian who lives in USA. I can teach Indonesian language to other English speaking person.
About Hadi S.

I have performed over 600 public music performances as a part of a band and/or as a solo keyboardist, at over 50 different venues in Philadelphia, Wilmington, New York City, Baltimore and New Jersey area. I mainly play piano, electric piano and Hammond organ. As member of a band, I have played Funk, New Orleans, Classic Rock, Blues, Jazz and Fusion. As a solo pianist, my playing style is more into Jazz easy listening (swing, bossanova, foxtrot), Pop/Rock Standard, Blues/New Orleans easy listening and ragtime. I have been playing keys for over 20 years and graduated from Berklee College of Music with a major in Jazz Composition and Music Production & Engineering. I have taught students, teenagers, adult and small children as young as 5 years old. My teaching is focused on stylistic piano playing (chord playing, improvisation, transposition) for students over 10 year old with at least 1 year continuous piano training. I certainly welcome piano training for beginners as early as preparatory level. Digital piano and digital Hammond organ are available at my house for piano tutoring should you choose to come to my location. My graduate study was in Acoustics. I am an acoustical consultant and also an audio engineer. I teach audio production classes at Temple University. I specialized in room acoustics and electro-acoustics (loudspeaker design). I have a studio at home and open to audio tutoring (recording and mixing) request as well. I am originally from Indonesia and have already published two books. I can help with Indonesian language tutoring for English native speakers. I have done many seminars/workshops both in English and Indonesian. I welcome tutoring requests in Music (Piano, Composition/Arranging), Music Theory, Music Production or other Audio/Acoustics related topics. Hadi {HA-dee} Reviews from other places: Steven M - November 28, 2017 Piano Lessons Working with Hadi is a true pleasure. He has an immense amount of knowledge and experience to boot. Hadi is extremely easy to work with and has tons of patience while in the lesson. He has a keen ability to analyze where you are as a player and build a personalized plan to reach your goals. I highly recommend him as a teacher for pursuing jazz piano as well as other contemporary styles. Chloe K - February 7, 2018 Mr. Hadi is a very patient and knowledgeable piano teacher. My son definitely enjoys learning piano and music theory with him. I can see that Mr. Hadi keeps a progress chart for each of his students,. My son is just a beginner level student, but he still gets personalized content from Mr. Hadi. My goal is not to show off my son's piano skill at family gathering, but to encourage him appreciate and enjoy music. Thanks to Mr. Hadi for helping me reaching this goal. Velisia C - February 11, 2018 It was my first piano learning lesson, and Hadi is the greatest teacher. As an adult, I thought it will be hard to understand the material but Hadi gave a very good explanation. Quick responses, and absolutely great value for a private lesson. He is so patient. Worth it!!! Chris D - February 23, 2018 Hadi S is an excellent teacher, and an even better player. As a teacher, he's patient, knowledgable, and provides excellent advice that helps you develop your skills. And as a player, he is as good as it gets. He can play just about anything. Best was that he takes the time to speak with you and ask what kind of atmosphere you want to create with music, and then does exactly what was asked. Emily B - March 2, 2018 Lessons are easy to understand. Very good at explaining what you are doing wrong and how to fix your mistakes. Music choice is also always fun making practicing more enjoyable. Charmel G - March 27, 2018 Hadi is very personable and knowledgeable. He helps my daughter feel comfortable and confident with her skills and abilities. He is also very accommodating. I'm glad to have found Hadi....

Teacher's Studio

I have responsibility review of lessons with him. First,when I contacted with him about lessons,he suggested me interview that there’s no charge but he would want to discuss with me what I would do expect piano lessons for my son for future. After discussion,I sent my son another day,it was the first lesson. Surprisingly,he had prepared its already pre-printed lesson flows! I appreciated it that it means,we guardians don’t need worry about what we could expect lessons,but of course required practice for next time. Patent could check what happened the lesson was,what would be for next. Bastin,Alfred,as you know,those textbooks that kids could learn all the notes. He uses some of them,it would be combined for your child. If you looking for the best fundamentally for your child,to play piano,not only enjoyable one,I think he’s the best. I know there are many Japanese families in Bryn Mawr,I would recommend he’s class! We are moving family,I expect the piano lessons with him would be make my son’s knowledge to play piano more stronger,also beyond countries,even time passed by.

Hadi has been a fantastic instructor for my 15 year old son, who was a complete beginner. Under Hadi's patient guidance and thoughtful plan, he is playing well and really enjoys the lessons. I would highly recommend Hadi to anyone regardless of experience level. He has expert knowledge but can talk to and work with novices to get them playing right away.

New Pony
New Pony delivers a soulful, driving, deep-in-the-pocket brand of funk and soul with a a little southern flavor that practically dares audiences not to move. Live, the chemistry between the band members fuses through a kind of musical alchemy into an infectious electricity wherever they play. Fortunately, their new CD, "Make Your Move," captures their live sound in all its funky, fire breathing splendor. The song writing is polished, the musicianship is accomplished and tight, and the rhythm section lays down a groove as wide as a boulevard and as tight as a wire, while the horn section erupts like a flashes of lightening. The Philadelphia City Paper recently said of them, "they groove, they rock, they make you dance and they throw one of the best parties around." Since forming in 2006, New Pony has established themselves as one of the most sought after and entertaining bands on the local and regional scenes. Their schedule takes them to most of the top venues in Philly, as well as all over Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware, Northampton, Berks, and Chester counties. The band also makes regular trips to Baltimore, NYC, Delaware, and the Jersey shore. They've been a featured performer at some of the region's top festivals, and they've opened for a number of national acts including Bonerama, The Budos Band, Big Sam's Funky Nation, Bernie Worrell, Papa Grows Funk, The Main Squeeze, and Robert Randolph and the Family Band.
