Hi. My name is Oscar Caucaly. I am a graduate of NYU with a MA in jazz performance, specializing in piano. I want to share my knowledge and experience with you as a professional pianist. I have studied with many great teachers, including the Grammy winning pianist Alan Broadbent, Ari Hoening and Chris Potter among others. I’m passionate about music and teaching. I have more than 10 years of experience teaching professionally at universities and music schools.

I am going to design a plan based on your interests and goals. We can work on technique, music theory, composition and learning different styles such as classical, jazz, pop ,funk, Latin, Brazil among others, to improve your rhythm skills and ear training. I want to share the gift of playing and enjoying music with my students.
