For young people and beginners I use the Alfreds piano books, they have great songs that students really like and they teach note reading gradually without a lot of tedious memorization. Young people and beginners are a specialty for me.
Advanced students can work on songs they choose and learn how to read chord charts, how to use music theory or how to improvise jazz if they like.

A lot of my students are well on their way to a rewarding future with music, some as professionals and others as hobbyists. In addition to being a teacher, I am also a professional performer who has work

My daughter wanted some exposure to the instrument so she could continue with it on the side as she has a primary instrument already. John did a great job or arming her with the requisite knowledge to understand how to play. I would recommend him.

I help students learn a variety of styles from classical to jazz to pop. Something that I especially emphasis is improv and composition which is something we can get started with at any level and we usually dabble in from the first lesson. I teach students age four and up. Anyone can enjoy playing the piano and I help students play the songs that most interest them while making sure they are well-rounded musicians!

I use a variety of curricula depending on the age and interests of the student.
-For students 4-6 I use Music for Little Mozarts where we learn music with stuffed animals based on famous composers like Mozart Mouse, Beethoven Bear, and Clara Schumann-Cat.
-7 to 12: I use the Piano Pronto method book series in the their 45 minute lessons. These books incorporate a varied repertoire with many songs the students already know and enjoy.
-For teens and adults I have some series that contain varied selections of different genres, some that focus on jazz, and some that are ...

The amount of patience that Laney has is incredible. It is key for me to have a teacher that is encouraging, kind and that doesn't make me feel bad when I make mistakes. Also, I can tell that she loves teaching and that she has so much knowledge to share!!
Rachel
Laney has engaged my 7 year old son, my husband and myself so that we all love learning and playing piano in our house together. She is an excellent teacher for all ages and is skilled at teaching not only how to read and play piano, but also how to understand and appreciate theory and composition to make you a better musician.

Ella es una increíble pianista y maestra. Tomé casi 6 meses de piano con ella y aprendí muchas cosas. Me encantaba que elegía canciones que me iban a gustar y de acuerdo a mi nivel. Disfruté mucho las clases!

She is an awesome pianist and teacher. I took almost 6 months of piano with her and I learned lots of stuff. I loved that she always picked songs I was gonna like and according to my level. I really enjoyed each class!

I teach sight reading, the ability to play a new piece perfectly without any practice the first time played. I also teach the classical go through books learning harder and harder songs each week. I also teach improvisation the cording method the ability to play ez-play music and make it sound like you have been studying piano for twenty years after only a couple of years. 46 years teaching experience with a Masters in Education.

Mr. Young was an incredible man to learn from. After taking 3 lessons from him I could tell that he has a rich history in music and teaching and has a legitimate love for music. I had to discontinue my lessons due to a move out of state but i would recommend him to anyone.

I have always struggled with site reading Mr. Young made it easy. Me. young is the best teacher I have ever had.
Julie
When I came to Bill I had hopes and dreams of having the ability to read and play any kind of piano music. As a child I struggled with reading music during 3 years of lessons with a strict classical teacher, but held on to the dream. I have waited over 50 years to live the dream I am fulfilling now. Bill had me reading and playing any piano arrangement I wanted in 3 months. I play classical, gospel, movie themes and more and loving it all. His unique teaching method inspires you with an "I can do this" attitude. He analyzes who you are, your own style and abilities and raises the bar with every lesson. As I play, he shows me how to enhance my performance with every note. He couples insight with knowledge and his 30+ years of experience to create a true pianist. He tells me I am the composer when I play, own the music. He tells me "don't just play the music, become the music". After 2 years of lessons I am living my dream and preparing for concert level opportunities. Whether young or old (I am 73 years old), Bill can inspire and teach you to play. I often wonder where I would be in the music world if he would have been my childhood teacher. I highly recommend Bill to start your child's music foundation on the right track or for yourself - to live your dream too. Thank you Bill for all you do and who you are!

My kids have been taking guitar and drum lessons with Bruno for 2 years, and they are having a great time! It's awesome that he teaches two instruments, because I can have both kids take their lessons in the same place. They have tons of fun learning new songs, and the studio is nice too. Highly recommend him for others!
Lilia B.
I enrolled in online lessons with Bruno after seeing his posts on social media. I am glad that I can get such effective lessons with him online, because he is an excellent musician and instructor. He does a great job of demonstrating all the techniques that I need to know and teaching me a lot of different songs. Our lessons have been very productive thus far and I look forward to more!
Lindsey
Bruno is a great guitar teacher. My son stared lessons with him last year as a complete beginner, and now he can play a lot of his favorite songs on guitar. Bruno is knowledgeable, patient, and fun all at the same time! My son learns something new at every lesson and is excited to go home and practice! He is having tons of fun learning with Bruno and I recommend him to anyone.

My approach to teaching involves developing a comprehensive understanding of what one is doing while playing, rather than just learning a couple of songs, or relying solely on your muscle memory, you will be able to explain what you are doing from a theoretical standpoint.

Without getting too heavy with the use of technical terms, I will teach you to see the underlying threads that apply to all styles of music and encourage you to begin making these types of connections yourself.
This is an important skill to develop early so that as you progress you can begin to teach yourself develop your own unique stylistic approaches to music!

After studying at Laguardia High school for the Performing Arts, I attended McGill University in Montreal where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Jazz Piano Performance.

If you study with me you will be able to expand your knowledge of:
-Music Theory
-Harmony
-Piano technique
-Ear Training
-Sight Reading
-Composition
-Improvisation

About Chris

Born and raised in downtown Manhattan, I have studied music for over 15 years now. When I was about 8 years old I started studying classical piano, and to be perfectly honest, it was like pulling teeth to get me to play. The repetitious nature of learning classical etude after etude wore down upon

Chris is a phenomenal piano instructor! He is extremely talented and can play different kinds of music- such an inspiration. He is very patient as my daughter and myself are beginners. He immediately picked up on what kind of music my daughter is into and has her play pieces that interests her and makes her happy (which also means she will practice more) I highly recommend Chris!

"My son at aged 8 begged for piano lessons. I looked online and somehow I had enough good karma to find Fawn. I was tempted to go to like a “kids club” type of class because I thought he could do a trial first and then I could judge his commitment. But once he met Fawn, he was all in. I am sure people who know more about music than I would agree that he has technically progressed over the past several months. I mean he started from nothing and is playing and learning from Fawn and eager to pick things up on his own. But, I find you can get technical anywhere. What you can’t get anywhere is Fawn. (My son actually gets mad when I refer to Fawn as “his teacher” because he says she is so cool so I should call her Fawn! :) ) If I were to give an official review I would say my son has played lesson book songs, solo pieces, memorizing music, music theory, note spelling, reading about the great composers, taken several written tests to find out what he has retained and has advanced considerably in a short amount of time, etc. Fawn is classically trained and trained in jazz and tends to be fun around my son, yet tough about the rules. She approaches every lesson from the perspective of the student. My son always reminds me to write from the heart like I make him do. So I asked him, when I wanted to write a review, what should I say? He said, “Say Fawn loves music and she loves me.” So, long story long, very highly recommend."
