About Veronica B.

Hello, potential piano proteges'! **SALE**I am also offering a half-off sale on Skype online lessons now. You get a full one hour lesson for the same price as 30 minutes in-home lesson!... Being a piano protege as a child myself, I have been teaching piano, organ, and flute for over 25 years since, and I currently have students that range from children to adults. While you are learning to play the piano, you will be playing popular, classical, hymns, and all types of music. I am a keyboard and composition major at Stony Brook University and play many musical styles like pop, standards, classical, swing, and rock 'n roll. My students were finalists in the Yamaha Electone organ competition. From 4th grade to High School graduation, I received NYSSMA awards and scholarships as a flutist.

After working on it for 2 years, I finally published my first piano lesson book for the young piano students. It's for the 7 and younger age groups. If you would like to order it go to Amazon. Com and search for Veronica B. and you'll see it as "Colorful Melodies for Piano".

Veronica was patient while we figured out the logistics of distance learning and gave me homework to challenge me.
She is personable, and someone I would be friends with outside of the professional relationship we share.

Veronica was great, she came prepared with worksheets and fun little tricks for young learners to remember the notes on a keyboard. My son loved his lesson, he's looking forward to lesson #2.

We love Ms Veronica. The kids love Ms Veronica. She makes it fun. She picks songs the kids know and love to play and uses that to engage them. It's not boring and the kids look forward to their classes each week.

Our 5 year old enjoys attending her lessons. She is very creative and skilled with younger children. He feels at ease and is learning the basic art skill of piano with every lesson.

Ms. Veronica is a highly skilled piano teacher. Her lesson plans are well chiseled and catered to the skills and intellect of my daughter. Ms. Veronica is friendly and wasted no time connecting with my daughter, the latter thinks highly of her; and I’m happy that I had picked Ms. Veronica out of a long list of piano teachers.

Veronica and I were able to work together to come up with ideas about how the lessons would proceed. We agreed on some classical, some great American songbook and some jazz. Looking forward to the second lesson.
