Hello, potential piano proteges'! ...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 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.

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.
