I have a special place in my heart for beginning piano students. I treat them more like a grandchild than as a strict classical instructor would. I have eliminated the pressure to learn wherever possible. From the first day, my students learn to read basic music. The lessons I create are customized based on my student's interests, strengths and ability to learn. Each child is unique. Whether they are gifted or special needs, each student gets my full attention. I get a great deal of joy from seeing the faces of my students light up when they accomplish a piece of music.

An intermediate level student holds a special challenge for me. Many times, they come to me having developed bad habits or missing important musical information that could make them a better pianist. I see my role as filling the gaps that they are missing and taking them further from there.

My students come and they stay with me - some for many years. If this is the type of experience you are looking for, then we should get acquainted. I would love to be your gateway to the enriched musical experience.

About Sharon Y.

Many music teachers with whom you come in contact will try to hook you into their studio by telling you all about the great groups they have played with and how sought after they are for their various skills. Then try to make you feel that you are missing out on something special if you don’t sign up with them.
That might be good for some people, but I have a different approach. I have been a piano teacher for over 30+ years. I taught in the public schools and I have worked with students of all skill levels. Rather than tell you that I can do everything, I choose to specialize. I work specifically with beginners and intermediate children through adults. I love to watch you learn your first piece and see the joy that having command of the instrument brings. You want to play songs. I want to teach you how to do that in a straight - forward, personalized way.
I graduated from New Jersey City University when it was still Jersey City State College. I am a piano/voice major with a minor in instrumental music.
As you know I am able to teach you online so that you are in the comfort of your own home in any of the English speaking countries of the world. I can watch you on the computer and you can watch me the same way. You don’t have to travel during this Pandemic. It makes life very convenient.
Do you believe that you want to learn to play music so that you can play the piano for your own enjoyment? Do you want to learn without pressure and stress? If you answered yes, then we should meet and get to know each other better. As I have for so many others, I would like to be a part of enriching your life with music.

Sharon ihas been a wonderful teacher for my son. She’s patient and encouraging in guiding him. This is really important with kids and their short attention spans.

We love working with Sharon! We have 4 daughters and we have been so impressed with how easy the online process has been, how the girls have taken to not having the instructor there in person, and mostly how supportive, understanding, encouraging, and wonderful of an instructor Sharon is. We are so happy to have found her!! A+++ !!!

Working with Sharon has been a great experience so far. Being stuck at home has given my girls the drive to want to learn piano. We have a keyboard and Tablet and Sharon sees them each once a week. They look forward to working with her each week. Even those these lessons are on-line they are live and personable. Sharon is very patient with my younger one who gets frustrated easy. My older one is 13 and loves her one on one time during her lesson. She likes to show off what she figured out during the week and take on new challenges.

Sharon is an extraordinary teacher. My family has been with her for years. She has opened her heart and mind to understand the needs of her students. She refuses to push a student into a category that the student doesn't match. Every student is not the same. Sharon uses the students natural tendencies to teach the student in a manner that is comfortable, creative and effective. My children have grown up with this kind of example and now I see my grandchildren exhibit the same strengths and skills. Sharon is a Master Teacher. All teachers should take a note from her musical play book.
