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
Teaching since 2002
B.A. from Cornell University
Awesome and knowledgeable teacher definitely would recommend to anyone who’s ready to take their singing to the next level !!!
She's great! Super helpful and genuine. I'm excited to keep working with her!
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.Show More
Wonderful teacher. Made everything simple and clear.
Ramona was great! Very enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and creative!
Ramona is a very patient and kind teacher who will work with your individual needs and abilities. She’s very talented and it’s a pleasure to talk and play with her.
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!Show More

I am a Big Keith Richards fan. I sort of live and play similar to him. But as I got older my fingers are starting to get like him too. Can you teach me I am 61 years old
We have been really happy with Monie. She connects well, chooses music that is of interest, and has a teaching style that works really well with my daughter.
Ramona is a Great instructor, Very knowledgable in different aspects of music and instruments; also has a nice set up in her home. grateful for the experience and lessons.
I really liked her and look forward to my lessons.
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.Show More
I absolutely love this teacher! She is very detailed and smart. She mentions everything you need to know about your topic. She helped me greatly with my topic of singing and music. I strongly recommend this teacher!
Very patient and knowledgeable. I enjoyed my first lesson and I'm looking forward to the next lesson.
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.Show More
Love her! Super patient, helpful, enthusiastic and so knowledgeable...she will work at your pace and do whatever she can to help.
She is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her work. I appreciate her style of teaching as she seems to love what she does and I look forward to learning from her.
Ramona was very knowledgeable, patient and considerate of my needs. I look forward to working together to accomplish my goals.
I truly feel like I lucked up with Ramona. She's very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. And she inspires me to want to learn more about music. I leave enlightened and enthused after every lesson. I'm so grateful for her expertise, patience, and constructive criticism. I couldn't ask for a better instructor! : )Show More
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.Show More
wonderful first experience! Impressive! Looking forward to more lessons.
Ramona is an excellent instructor. She makes you feel comfortable as a student.
Absolutely loved my first lesson and I'm looking forward to the next.
I can see myself growing vocally, and musically if I continue my lesson with Ramona. I was comfortable singing when we met for the first time. She know how to break the ice. Simply amazing. Thanx Ramona 👍🏽
My daughter just had a first lesson and it went great. Ramona was very patient and engaging. My daughter said she had a lot of fun even though it was challenging. We are eagerly awaiting our next lesson.
She is the best I took my first lesson with ms Delgado and I had a super good time and I learn a lot from ms delgado i can't wait for my other lesson with ms Delgado
The best!!! Very patient, very knowledgable and makes learning fun!!
Ramona has been teaching our children guitar, piano and starting on composition. We are very happy and the kids love her.
It's been going great, very supportive and attentive to the areas I need the most help.
Knows her stuff. If you are looking to record music. She is an engineer and knows can really help you achieve your goals
My daughter's confidence is soaring.everyone is commenting on her improvements since she's been working with Ms. Ramona! Awesome instructor...
Ramona is truly a musician and a knowledgeable, professional and delightful teacher. I was not able to continue my lessons due to family illness, but would take her again if I could.
Amazing absolutely no complaints.
My daughter loves her. Knowledgeable in her craft and patient.
Ramona is great to work with. In our first lesson she asked me questions about why I want to learn piano, and structured our lesson plans based on my goals. She's friendly, welcoming, and professional. Highly recommended.
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.Show More
I had such a great time training with Ramona. She demonstrates professionalism, leadership and knowledge. Ramona is highly recommended and favored!! Tens across the board!!!!!
