**New Studio Update
Beginning August 2018, I will be opening a teaching studio on the Upper East Side. Please contact me for more information.
I am a professional pianist and piano teacher in the Greater New York City Area. I hold a B.M. from Berklee College of Music and an M.M. from Manhattan School of music.
I am very versatile in my lessons and tailor material to students' needs and preferences. Whether we are reading a classical piece, learning a pop song by ear, or improvising, I encourage you to use your ears to develop your own style.
I believe composition is an important tool for student growth. I compose original exercises and pieces for my students that target specific areas of improvement. I also encourage students to compose themselves.
Whether you are playing the piano for the first time or already have a few years of experience, you can expect my lessons to yield weekly results and to gain skills that will maximize your potential.
My first lesson with Samantha. I was nervous but she put me at ease. My brain is stull smoking from having to think so hard but im now awesome at playing Let It Be. She's superb!
