About Ramona D.

I'm a professional musician and audio engineer. I'm a classically trained pianist and I offer lessons in piano, guitar, voice, music theory, music recording, music performance and songwriting.

I received my music education from The Brooklyn Music School, Cornell University and the The Institute of Audio Research.

I perform in original & cover bands as a keyboardist and back up singer. I also do work for hire session recordings and have composed music for commercials and short films.

As an audio engineer, I record, mix, edit, arrange, master and program demos, EPs albums, mix-tapes, karaoke tracks and ringtones. I also produce as well. I co-own a project recording studio in Brooklyn, NY called Radian Studios.

I'm very passionate about what I do and I guarantee a creative, enjoyable and fulfilling experience!



*** Lesson Details ***
For piano and voice, I incorporate basic music theory methods but I also focus on ear training as well. My ultimate goal when teaching is for the student to have a visceral experience while playing or singing.

For audio engineering, I go over audio recording techniques and the tools & equipment needed to produce a professional sounding song.

I enjoy imparting my knowledge of music to others and I demonstrate that enthusiasm in my teaching style. I love relating what I'm teaching a student to his/her learning style. Figuring out how someone learns is a key component to my method and I'm a better instructor because of it.

*** Studio Equipment ***
lives in a brownstone three story home with recording studio f/w 88 keys seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano, a keyboard with 88 keys and sustain pedal.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, music theory and ear training

Ramona is a very thorough singing teacher, explaining everything every step of the way. I really enjoyed working with her. She has a great setup that makes recording and playback really easy. Her studio was conveniently located near my house.

Ramona is great. She is so calm and patient with me. She teaches in a way that makes it's fun and enjoyable rather than technical in the beginning. She gives you homework so you can practice at home. The homework is not burdensome because you will leave the lesson excited to go home and practice what you learned.

Ramona is the best! I started lessons with her a few weeks ago and I am already improving tremendously. She's tailored everything to my skill level (I played piano as a child but forgot almost everything), and I'm learning theory and playing by ear. She's definitely an expert and I plan on working with her for a long time!

Moni is such a wonderful teacher! I am a beginner singer, and have been her student for about 8 months. From the very beginning, Moni was careful to give me a solid foundation to build upon. She has taught me some of the key essentials of music theory, and really helps me understand how to use my voice as an instrument. Added bonuses are that she records me in her professional studio and sends me the tracks, and she's very cool and easy to talk to.

Mona is the best teacher you could find for any type of music. I came to improve as a singer, but I've improved as a songwriter and learned more about recording and live performance. As a person, Mona is also very nice and easy to interact with. She is a very patient teacher, and the results will definitely show.

Ramona is very consistent, and very talented in all matters of teaching. She works really well with kids, especially in regards to the kind of learning they need. My daughter Chloe is an auditory learner, and really helped her learn in that way. I would definitely recommend her as a teacher.

Ramona is a welcoming and moving teacher with the agility to work with a beginner like me! I came to Ramona having played guitar for many years but never having sang and never having learned theory or how to combine the two. She was able to identify confidently what I should work on and what she worked on w me. It's working well and now I'm hammering away on favorite songs and finally singing. Great to work with; very comfortable atmosphere as well. Highly recommend her.
