Brooklyn, NY
View Full Profile

I've been teaching piano for over ten years. I teach everything from Bach, Mozart, and Chopin. I use Faber & Faber books for beginners and Intermediate.

About Tamara
I'm a producer, instructor, singer songwriter, sound engineer, and composer residing in Brooklyn, New York. I'm currently working on a Master's Degree in Music Production and Sound Design at The Academy of Art University, freelancing as a pianist/vocalist, and I'm working on and recording a second album.

I started singing, playing piano, and composing music when I was seven years old. Throughout my musical career, I have performed and collaborated with various rock bands, classical trios, vocal ensembles, churches, and theater groups.

My Education includes Berklee College of Music, Academy of Art University, McNally Smith College of Music, MCTC, and Full Sail University (BS and AAS degrees in Music Performance, Sound Arts/sound Engineering, Music Production).

I enjoy writing and playing classical, electronic, rock, jazz,
folk, punk, and experimental music. In my free time I like to circuit bend.

*** Lesson Details ***
When you take lessons from me expect to be inspired and pushed. I thoroughly love teaching music and want the best for my students. I try my best to involve and invite students to join or listen to live music ensembles, recitals, and performances of different genres. I teach all styles of music for voice, piano, and guitar. I am very diligent with practicing, teaching you how to practice, and keeping track of it. In 3 or 6 months you will have a basic understanding of music theory and a solid foundation of piano, voice, or guitar techniques. I thrive to boost self esteem and confidence in all the students that I teach. I also teach composition, students really enjoy writing their own songs and performing them.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a guitar. I expect students that want voice or piano lessons to have some kind of keyboard in working condition.

*** Specialties ***

As a member of of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) I am able to give your students great resources and opportunities to enter competitions.

I am also a member of New York State Music Teachers Association.

I am also a Pro Tools certified user.

Our first piano lesson with Tamara was really pleasant. She was very welcoming and attentive the whole time. I can tell my son was really enjoying the lesson. The details with the progress sheet and flash cards she provided was a plus for me. Her studio space also made the experience really great!

I add sight-reading in a book with other sources and games to learn how to sharpen your skills. Scale studies, finger patterns, music theory, and composition. I hold a spring concert every year to show off your talent!

About Mary
I started playing saxophone in 1994. It was an immediate passion! As the years went on my thirst for music grew and I picked up more instruments. No matter which instrument I play the passion is the same. I like to write and arrange as well so I feel an extreme importance on music theory. I am classically trained although my drive is always towards roots music. I try my hardest to combine those two elements.

I am currently also a freelance musician in Nashville, TN. You may see me playing various instruments in my own group “Mary & Your Choice of Sides” or other groups such as: A Man Called Stu, the Highjivers, The Bullhorn Boys, The Zimmerman Twins, The Willies, Bailey Dee, Paul Burch, Woody Pines, Art Adams, The Dead Man’s Carnival, Jane Rose & the Dead End Boys, Lane Kristian, etc.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Bring your own saxopho
ne, flute or clarinet and books
Studio has keyboard, chairs, stand, stereo.

*** Specialties ***
Technique and sight-reading
Training for WSMA Solo & Ensemble competitions, auditions preparation, college entrance auditions, college scholarship auditions
Music Theory
Improvisation
Specific application of theory to various styles of music including jazz, blues, rock, americana, R&B, dixieland, swing, ska, etc.
Performance confidence coaching

Mary was a fun and patient piano lesson teacher. I have never taken any music lessons before so we started with the basics but she did a good job of finding the pace that I learned at. She taught slow enough for me to catch on, but not too slow to where I felt like my 30 min lessons were a waste of time/money.

Unfortunately, I had to cancel the rest of my lessons with Mary because I was becoming too busy with work to stay committed to my lessons and practice. If I ever take lessons again I'll definitely sign up with Mary again, zero complaints.

Mary was amazing teacher for me, and she really sparked my passion for music. I had really just started clarinet when I began taking lessons from her, and I truly believe one of the reasons I am going into music is because of how she made me see it. In the short time that I was able to be her student I learned more than just the fundamentals, and have yet to find a teacher that I work with as well as I did with her. If I could take up lessons with her again, I would in a heartbeat.

Nashville, TN

I spent twelve years studying classical piano under the tutorship for an classical pianist from Oberlin Conservatory, and I believe there is no alternative to become a great pianist without starting out classically. You will get a excellent foundation for technique, style, sight-reading, harmony, and repertoire than will transfer to any other genre. Beginning students will start with an excellent foundation for technique and apply these to basic repertoire, learn to read music, and play scales. Intermediate and beyond will build and improve on these skills to learn classical repertoire and more complex pieces.

About Natalie
Hi, everyone!

I'm so excited to be in Music City! I just moved to Nashville from New York City where I worked with Broadway performers and kids auditioning for some of the most competitive performance schools in the country. I'm confident I can help you achieve your music goals, whether they be learning to produce a powerful, resonate, healthy sound with your voice, becoming proficient in piano from everything from Bach to Billy Joel, or writing clear, catchy songs that will have a big impact on an audience.

Please check out my bio below and feel free to ask me any questions about lessons with the "Ask a Question" button.

Hope to be working with you very soon!

I am accepting new private students for piano lessons. I have extensive experience teaching children and adults of all levels for 29 years. I also conducted many large projects like musicals with children and they enjoy working with me very much. I have a PhD in Music and I'm a professor at Tennessee State University.

I'm very good with little ones. They think we play on the piano while I'm doing my job. My first aim is to welcome them to world of music and share my love of music. This is very important for me as once they feel and understand music, it will have an important place in their lives.

My sessions for ages between 4-6 will be 30 minutes most but I highly advice 1 hour of lessons for older students, teenagers and adults.

About Dr. Tem
“As an artist/educator who has a childlike soul, I both feel and sense life, and reflect this through my art; teaching is the best way to share and convey this understanding to younger generations. “Revealing students’ spirits with the love of music and helping them to use it with passion while making music” is my main philosophy in teaching.”

Dr. Tem

A composer and music technologist. Composing experience is diverse and includes composing for orchestras, and composing with computers for multimedia, computer games and film. Academic, research and work experience in Music Composition, Film Scoring, Music Theory and Ear Training, Piano, E-Learning, Music Technology, Computer Music, Sound Design, Game Audio and Game Technologies among favorite areas.

Dr. Tem is a wonderful teacher for any age and audience. If you only want to learn to play, then you will be satisfied. However, if you are interested in music as art and a form of expressing one self, you will find this is where Dr. Tem's ability to teach really shines through.

Classical music is my life passion and I am happy to introduce to my students the best of its piano compositions in styles from Baroque to contemporary. On the example of the chosen repertoire, we learn to define, compare and analyze the structure, harmony, theory and interpretation of classical compositions. Understanding of what was beyond the notes helps my students to discover the world of classical piano in the full aspect. Under my guidence you will be excited to learn to play more classical music than you ever did!

About Polina
I am an experienced classical pianist with honorable degrees obtained from the most prestigious musical institutions in the world - State Academy of Music (Russian conservatory of music) located in Minsk, Belarus, as well as The College of Saint-Rose, Albany, New York, Unites States. Piano has been my main area of concentration since I was five years old, so I consider myself to be a top professional in the music field.

I really enjoy working with highly motivated students and welcome various ages and levels. I have worked both with professional musicians and beginner level music enthusiasts. As a teacher and piano soloist, I have worked in various countries including Russia, Italy, France and the United States. My international teaching experience has been showing wonderful results, and I am proud of my students winning the highest p
laces in the international auditions, competitions and festivals worldwide.

My thoroughly developed teaching method is built on the best combination of Russian and European traditions in music education, and it is intended to build and advance skills in reading, technique, theory, to enrich music appreciation by exploring compositions of variety of styles and genres, to discover the internal abilities and approach to an instrument, and master performing techniques.

I have been teaching children and adults piano lessons for 10 years now. I have my master's degree in music from the University of Utah. I work mainly on classical music, but we can work on any type that you are interested in learning. Students for me have been as young as 4, and as old as 65. My only criteria is that my students be able to read, count, and sit for the lesson.

About Sharon
Hello everyone,

I am a mother of a beautiful little girl, and have been teaching piano for 10 years. I have a passion for music. Music helps children and adults to learn, improves grades, focus, and their ability to express themselves. In such a busy world, it is a blessing to stop and delve into music. I want to teach children and adults to appreciate this art and make the most of themselves like I did.

I started to play right before college. I then graduated with a master's degree in music. I play flue and violin as well, but my main passion is piano. Life is short, so I want to enrich my life and yours if I can.

Over 15 years of teaching experience, offering a tried and true method of learning to play within a few lessons by ear, also offering classical or both. If you want to be able to play the piano by ear fast and effectively, our proven method of over 25 years will get you playing your favorite music in no time. I also offer classical lessons, and many students prefer to take a dual track in order to train their ear as well as their musical knowledge. I would love to propel your student into a place where they can be a life-long learner so they can always improve their musical skills, even without an instructor.

About Elaine
Hola! I have been teaching the piano and Spanish for over 10 years, and love seeing how quickly we all can learn a new skill if we just have the right coaching. I'm a firm believer in teaching you HOW to learn first, no matter the subject. Many of my students become so proficient in the art of being self-taught, they soon don't need me ( which I consider an honor!) . Whether on the piano or in the Spanish language, I know we all have the capacity for more, and I'll help you get there. I'm a mom of 2 beautiful girls and a little lab puppy. My husband and I love our kids and our Southern life! Feel free to reach out to me with any questions.
