Great Singing Teacher

Rebecca has helped me reach my goal of becoming a more accomplished choir member. I sing alto and before I took lessons with her, it was very difficult for me to stay on my part. She also helped me to breathe correctly and sing without straining my voice. I have learned SO MUCH from her, from how to warm up to how to project my voice so it can be heard. I am much more confident about my voice. She is a great teacher.

Working with kids requires the ability to use analogies and really understand the child that you are working with. Our experience with Adam has convinced me that he posses those qualities. He is also punctual and consistent. As the guy footing the bill, I appreciate.
We plan on continuing our relationship with Adam.

I have taken piano from Susan for 6 months now and have enjoyed everything about our online lessons. Susan is super gifted not only as a pianist, but also as a teacher who can make you feel good about yourself after the lesson has just flown by. Susan's pleasant personality and calm demeanor are an added bonus. I know whoever considers Susan as a teacher will not be disappointed and in fact will be ultimately delighted.

Awesome Teacher

Susan, you are a great piano teacher and I am so glad that my son's first piano lessons were with you! He really enjoys it and you, but unfortunately we have fallen on some unforeseen financial difficulties in the last couple of week and I am not sure that we can continue lessons until things get better for us. I am very disappointed and I know Steele is as well. Take good care and thank you for showing us that this is something we should pursue in the future!Penney

About Ophelia

I am a Hunter College graduate with a B.A in Music with concentration on Music Performance and Music Theory. I studied under Professors from well-credited music institutes like Harvard and Yale. I specialize my curriculum with not only playing the piano for performance, but also help students develop musicianship by training their vocals (such as sight singing) and ears. I also teach Music Theory along side that as well as some Music History. My lessons are conducted so that students can become a more well-rounded musician. In addition, I am also in a band so I can also teach popular music forms. Furthermore, I have experience teaching private one-on-one lessons as well as group lessons as I have worked in a piano studio before also. In addition, I am fluent in English, ...

My 14 year old daughter loves music lessons from Ophelia. I can say this is the first time my daughter has ever expressed this much interest in music. I was glad I was able to find Ophelia through another friend of mine whose daughter also learns from Ophelia. Whenever Ophelia teaches a new piece of music, she goes over the composer's history with her, teaches the theory behind the piece, and does a ton of musicianship training. The lessons are truly worth their cost. It makes my daughter learn so much, just as if she was going to school. I've got to say, Ophelia is worth her price tag. Anywhere else with this kind of private music training would probably go for at least $100 per 45 minute or more.

Ophelia is truly wonderful for helping my daughter pick up piano again. She is 15 years old and there's a lot of distractions that kept her from practicing piano. Ophelia was able to help her find interest in it again. Her teaching style is truly unique. After my daughter took her lessons she gradually became a better and happier musician and not just play off the books. Ophelia teaches music theory, singing and more to really help benefit my daughter overall! I will definitely be recommending her to my daughter's classmates!

Great experience

She did a wonderful job teaching Tara. Tara's viola technique really improved this year thanks to Dorothy's patience and hard work. Dorothy never missed a lesson and always came prepared for the next challenge. I must admit that I was hesitant to find a teacher using an on-line service but, Ihave been extremely pleased with our instructor and will miss Dorothy's guidance in our viola lessons.

Feedback for Dorothy

Dorothy has fabulous teacher. She is easy to learn from and doesnt get anoyed when you dont get things on the first try. This is great because as an adult I dont learn as quickly.Also, I am a college student (age 20) and she works with my school and work schedules. I really cant say how pleased I am with the quality of her teaching.
