Adam is an excellent teacher! I have always been intimidated by playing the drum set, but Adam was so good at explaining each step that it felt almost simple. After just a few lessons I was able to figure out some songs on my own, and felt confident enough to play with friends. Thank, Adam!

Gainesville, FL
View Full Profile

I have been teaching piano, voice, guitar, and songwriting for over 10 years, and my students have gotten into music schools such as Berklee College of Music and Celia Cruz Music High School in the Bronx. Other accomplishments include wonderful performances, even from the shyest students, at Summer and Winter Recitals, building bands and performing regularly, being cast in Cirque du Soleil and off-Broadway shows, and becoming teachers themselves.
Within the first lesson you be will playing/singing and reading music, and as times goes by you will be able to choose your favorite songs to learn and perform. I specialize in several styles of piano (jazz, improvisation, classical), guitar (fingerpicking, acoustic), singing (all genres), and songwriting (jazz, contemporary). I offer recording sessions anytime during our lessons, which is extremely helpful for singing and songwriting students.
I don’t use one set of books – I tailor our lesson goals and needs to every student. Not every ...

About Katrina
Hello! I am a graduate of Berklee College of Music, with a Bachelor’s degree in Writing and Production as well as a graduate of NYU Steinhardt with a Master's Degree in Music Technology. I have been teaching privately for 15 years, and performing for over 25!

I have begun teaching full time as of 2014, because I love teaching so much! I am driven by watching my students build confidence and learn to express themselves through music. My goal is for each student to become more expressive and build a love of music while also learning the theory behind it and performance techniques.

My first love is piano, as I began lessons at age 7. I wrote my first song at age 8 and started playing guitar shortly after. I am an accomplished songwriter, arranger, producer, performer, teacher and director. I have directed all ages and group sizes in m
usic as musical theatre director, musical director at church, band leader, and a children's music teacher. I love teaching and excel at finding unique ways to teach music and keep it interesting. I want you to have fun and learn what you find most interesting so we will work together to reach your goals.

Along with instrument and vocal lessons, I offer tutoring in all subjects of music and songwriting, and specialize in offering lessons tailored to each student’s needs. I refuse to hand out a book and go from front to back - expect handouts, impromptu lesson material to help you learn any specific concept you may be struggling with, CD’s with study material, exploratory homework, and thinking outside the box! We will do whatever it takes to get you wherever you want to be.

*** Lesson Details ***
I focus my curriculum on the goals of each student, their needs and their abilities. Everyone is different, so every student should have a different set of goals and a unique curriculum to reach them! I want to offer the most well-rounded education possible, so we will be regularly evaluating your goals and the materials you are using to reach them. I am easy-going and realistic - if you aren't interested in what you are learning then you aren't going to practice. So lets have some fun!

I work with every age group and integrate the following into all lessons: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums

• coordination
• rhythm - sometimes we will use our hands or bodies, or the drums or tambourine
• contemporary styles and songs - all my students get to choose their songs from my music library or their own!
• ear training - I help students to hear major and minor as well as the different notes of a chord. My singers work with solfege (do re mi) to gain early sight-reading skills
• singing together on simple songs - especially for young students to put them at ease and express themselves through music with something they already know (aka Twinkle Twinkle)
• scale work - I start my student young with the C scale and progress as each student can handle
• music theory - you won't even know you are learning it! My extensive training in this area allows me to find simple ways to teach these skills
• Performance technique: my voice students get to sing with a microphone and PA system to their favorite karaoke tunes and learn performance aspects. I also work with piano, guitar, and drums on performance skills.
• SONGWRITING: optional. I like to spend a class time every several sessions to help my creative students write their own song from start to finish! We can even record it if you like!

I work with several instruments in order to help my students get the most well-rounded music education they can until they choose a specific direction of their own (such as classical piano or acoustic guitar).

If you would like to focus only on one area, that is never a problem! I simply offer a variety of music lessons so that I can tailor the lesson to each student's goals. I will work with you to create a lesson plan.

Recitals are offered each Summer and Winter.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio: KORG weighted 88 key keyboard, acoustic and electric guitar and amp, PA system for performance in vocals, microphones. Parents may sit in on lessons or wait nearby. There is a library across the street, as well as a Dunkin Donuts.

For recording and production lessons, I use industry standards such as Logic Pro, Pro Tools, and Sonic. I give out weekly handouts and tailored homework assignments in most subjects. I can purchase books for students, or they can acquire the recommended books on their own.

*** Specialties ***
Young children music and piano 4 years and up; Piano; Voice - beginner and advanced; Musicality: can't decide what to study? I can work with you in a variety of areas including rhythm, percussion, songwriting, piano, guitar, singing, improvising, etc.

Philadelphia, PA

All students learn differently so I focus on catering each lesson to the student's goals. I want the student to have fun, feel comfortable, and also be productive in our lessons. Students can expect to learn the foundations of piano including scales and key signatures, while also learning new songs that they want to be able to play. Ultimately, my goal is to have students develop their love for music.

About Sophie
Sophie has been teaching piano lessons both privately and in a group setting since the summer of 2009. She is available to teach you either online, or at your home.

Sophie received her Bachelor of Music degree in Classical Composition from the Manhattan School of Music in 2012, with a minor in Piano. Sophie is currently pursuing a career as a singer-songwriter.

Sophie looks forward to helping you reach your musical goals and understands that the approach to teaching is different for every student. With her classical background as well as jazz influences, Sophie looks forward to working hard with you while having fun. Some lesson topics might include: learning how to play a song YOU love, learning fun chord progressions, and understanding how to get better at playing piano.

New York, NY

View Full Profile

Experienced teacher, pianist, and composer with two music master's degrees (composition from the Guildhall School of Music and jazz performance from the New England Conservatory). I teach all ages and levels in classical piano, improvisation, composition, songwriting, and music theory. I have a flexible schedule and want to make sure our time fits your needs.

About Phillip
I think we live in a great time to be making music as more and more genre-bending art takes center stage. My lessons reflect this. I have extensive training in classical music and jazz as a performer, composer, and improviser. I want to give lessons that are exciting to you, but also bring in new perspectives from overlapping musical practices. For example, I will create graphic-score compositions with your seven-year-old beginner piano student, I will improvise with a high school aged composition student, and I will assign some classical repertoire to an adult jazz student. I will always teach with the aim of providing technical knowledge in service of your artistic goals, as my own best mentors have done.

My own studies have taken me from Harvard (BA in English, where I also studied with jazz pianist Vijay Iyer) to London (Master's in
Composition from The Guildhall School of Music) and back to Boston (Master's in Jazz Performance from The New England Conservatory). I play in a number of bands that play improvised music. I also have many composition projects and extensive training in classical piano repertoire. I split my time between the scenes in New York and Boston.

I hope I can be of use to you to teach classical piano, improvisation, music theory, songwriting, composition, or jazz vocabulary!

Experienced professional pianist/keyboardist, specializing in teaching the techniques real, working musicians use when they play. All ages and levels of experience welcome. What I teach is a simple, direct, and accessible way of looking at music that takes it off of the page and into the student's ears and fingers. My students learn not only to play in their genre of choice (be it Classical, Jazz, etc.), but also how that knowledge enables them to transition to another genre if they so desire. In the process they also how to sight-read and improvise. Please send me a message if you would like more information! I would love to hear from you.

About Nicholas
I am a professional pianist/keyboardist. I graduated from Brown University with a degree in Music. I grew up in New York and Los Angeles.

I've worked extensively as an accompanist, booking regular jobs at the Tony-winning Trinity Repertory Company, Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, Rockwell Table and Stage, as well as solo cabaret shows for such actors as Marilu Henner (Taxi, Chicago on Broadway).

I have also done work for a number of LA's top wedding band agencies, such as West Coast Music and Downbeat LA. I perform both as a keyboardist for the main reception, where I play pop synthesizer, and am often al the pianist for the cocktail reception or ceremony.

It is the breadth and variety of my experience that makes me a good piano teacher. I am proficient in a just about every genre of music, having had to play
it at some point or another. I approach music the way a professional musician has to: efficiently. Learning to play piano does not mean making music more complicated, it means making it simpler.
