Music theory should just be a part of learning how to play the piano. Learning music is like learning a new language. Music theory explains everything from how to read music to harmony, chords, rhythm, melody and much, much more. As you advance it helps you to understand all types of music and why it sounds the way it does.

About Nancy H.

Playing the piano and loving music has been at the center of my life. Aside from the happiness and fun it can bring, learning an instrument also teaches discipline and confidence which carry over into everything.

I enjoy teaching both children and adults. As I teacher I am patient and encouraging. Lessons should be interesting and fun but also focused on my teaching you the foundations of playing and practicing.

While my background is primarily in classical music, I really enjoy exposing my students to all types of music as they learn the piano. I play the piano, harp and harpsichord and have performed in everything from solo recitals throughout the United States, music festivals and freelance work with the New York Philharmonic to musicals on broadway.

Nancy is wonderful! She is very patient and encouraging with my 10 year-old daughter. She asks her questions and really listens to her responses which is building her confidence. My daughter is loving her lessons and I couldn’t be happier.

It was a pleasure to have a teacher who inspired my daughter to progress with her piano playing as quickly as she did. I would highly recommend Ms Haber for any young piano student.

I’m an older adult who has wanted to take piano lessons for some time. After 6 weeks of lessons with Nancy I am playing easy songs , tentatively, but none the less, I am playing and know piano keys and also reading music notes and understanding. She is extremely patient, funny and my time goes by very quickly. Highly recommend getting in touch with her.

I'm a beginning piano student but also a professional musician on another instrument, the oboe. What Nancy brings to her lessons is the sophistication, experience and background of a high level professional together with the knowledge of how to start someone who has never played the piano. I'm very happy with the lessons on every level and Nancy is a charming, gentle and patient teacher.

Nancy gave my daughter her first piano lesson (when she was 6 years old). My daughter was a bit nervous going in, and Nancy had her smiling and relaxed within minutes. She is a wonderful teacher but more than that is fun and great with kids. Throughout the lesson she has her doing all sorts of different activities - clapping out rhythm, searching for notes on the keyboard, etc. - and I think that makes a really big difference with kids. I really can't believe how much my daughter has learned so far!
