Experienced piano teacher of 15 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of piano skills. I specialize in performance skills and typically use the Alfred Adult or Beginner books.
I have played piano since age 5 when I began playing by ear. I learned to read music much later in my life and have gone on to work in many different capacities as a pianist in the professional world. I have worked with many cabaret artists as musical director, arranger and accompanist. Most notably, Debbie Boily's "Thank You for the Music"a one woman show with me at the piano, recorded live at Ovations in June 2004 Houston, Texas and subsequently performed in France, England and New York.

About Michael Douglas
I maintain very active performing and teaching careers. I have private voice studios on Long Island and in Manhattan and have taught singers and pianists in every genre of music for the last 28 years. I was on the faculty of New York University in the Music and Music Professions Department for 5 years. I was a coach in the Banff Centre's 'Voice through body and movement' workshop. Throughout my career as a vocal coach, I have worked with many cabaret artists as musical director, arranger and accompanist. Most notably, Debbie Boily's "Thank You for the Music"a one woman show with me at the piano, recorded live at Ovations in June 2004 Houston, Texas and subsequently performed in France, England and New York. Most recently, I recorded an opera with Jazz legend Anthony Braxton and a Jazz CD with Fred Ho. I have recorded operas in progress fo
r Atlantic Records and new works of composers on the BMI label. As a performer I won the prestigious Jessie award for "outstanding performance by an actor in a leading role" for my creation of the Marquis in "120 Songs for the Marquis de Sade" in the world premiere co-produced by Modern Baroque Opera and Vancouver New Music. My international debut was in Sweden, singing the lead role of Director in "Kafka's Chimp" by Welsh composer, John Metcalf. Originally from Hawaii I now reside in New York where I garden and raise chickens. Experience

*** Lesson Details ***
I endeavor to teach you a natural and easy vocal production; to teach you a good solid technique of singing and to help you develop confidence and a polished delivery as a singing artist on and off the stage.

Our work together is an intuitive journey of discovery. Your participation in giving feedback about what you are experiencing during our sessions together as well as what happens in your practice sessions and in your performances is an invaluable tool for us to discover and develop your voice.

Practice: I encourage you to practice 20 minutes a day. An hour is ideal. Singing is like anything that you want to master: it improves with work and investigation. The voice is a curiously individual element of each person and aside from the basics of technique no two voices work the same. Our work together is to develop your unique voice and to discover how it works. Working outside our sessions on a regular basis will help you take ownership of your voice and technique.

Auditions/Performances: Please bring all music that you plan to sing in public to your sessions well in advance of the performance. We need time to investigate the music and its demands together; it will make you more confident and polished in your presentation.

In our Vocal sessions you will learn…
…how to use and blend the entire range of your voice.
… a healthy and free voice management.
1) You want to know what to expect from your vocal instrument on any given note and on any given word.
2) Training makes singing technique second nature; training relieves struggling to get the sound out and allows more focus on the performance.
3) Training allows for more tone coloration, a wider dynamic range, a full use and blending of the registers and greater stamina.
4) Extensive training and practical voice work gives a singer with long-range career aspirations the tools necessary to succeed in an incredibly competitive business. Whether the music is rock, pop, jazz, rhythm and blues, country, musical theater or classical, the trained singer can better meet the demands of a life on the stage as a singer.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dedicated Music Space, music stand, grand piano, three windows

*** Specialties ***
Onstage singing: I have 29 years experience on the operatic, music theater and cabaret theatre stages.

Play piano by ear!

Learn how to compose music without relying on sheet music

My goal is to give you the musical foundation that will allow you to build on for years to come.

Once you develop an awareness of where music naturally wants to progress it will allow you to be more creative if you want to compose, collaborate, or just play for recreation.

Sitting down in front of a piano and playing by ear is one of the most rewarding experiences and I look forward to teaching you!

New York, NY

View Full Profile

My classes are very flexible when it comes to what the student wants. I can go from just teaching very basic bass playing to advanced harmonic concepts and jazz improvisation. On the first class, I give the student the choice of controlling our lessons materials about what they want to learn. Or the student can choose to let me control our classes, in which I will bring my own materials and ideas in which we should work and will go through the whole academic process of learning music.

About Marcelo
Established New York musician. Berklee College of Music Graduate. Have been teaching for many years and know that each student has their own mindset and we need to work around each person`s goals and interests. I teach mainly pop, rock, blues, jazz, classical, funk, RnB. All ages and levels are welcome.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are very relaxed and we will focus on ways to practice and getting the student to learn what he/she wants. Some people just want to come and learn a few tunes, some want to really learn the instrument and practice all the time. It all depends on the individual and I`m more than ready to adapt for each one of my students with the methods I have.
On our first class we will spend some time discussing what are the goals of the student and I will formulate a good plan so we can reach those goals in no time
.
I usually have 3 main paths that the student can choose.
1st - Learn the instrument enough so you can play your favorite songs and have fun with friends.
2nd(most requested) - Learn the instrument from scratch. Study technique, repertoire, a little of reading and music theory and learn how to improvise. This will allow the person to have their own tools to study on their own after attending classes with me.
3rd - Usually people who have been playing before like this one. We will go deep in music theory, ear training, reading, improvising and technique. Always leaning challenging tunes that will develop the student skills. This one allows the student to follow a professional path on the future, or maybe go into a music college.

*Location
Classes can take place at my studio or at your own location with an extra fee for transportation.

*Under 18 students
For children under 18 parents are more than welcome to stay for the classes, tell me if there is any specific goal you are looking for or talk about any subject that you might want.

*AUDITION PREP
I also help people to prepare for auditions. For this subject, I will tell you how to get ready for an audition. If you are trying to get in a college I have many contacts around the country and know how most auditions work and can help you with any question there might be. For auditions for orchestras or band we can work on repertoire and behavior to get you ready and all set to get accepted.

Marcelo is a great instructor. He very quickly found my "level" and by the end of the first lesson had a plan for me which has been just perfect so far. He will challenge and train your brain along with your technique, and gently push you beyond your comfort zone. I'm extremely happy to be studying with Marcel and would recommend him to anyone.

I've had several voice teachers and Amy has been by far the best! I've grown more as a vocalist with her as my teacher than anyone else! She explains things in ways that makes sense and the awkward exercises she has you do really work! Whether you're female or male and want to improve, she can help you. The question isn't whether or not she's a good teacher. She's a great teacher! The question is whether or not you're willing to put in the work.

Sunnyvale, CA

I will teach you proper and comfortable techniques to play the piano. You will learn to play in all major keys and with different rhythmic styles so you can play songs you like. I include learning to play piano using both hands so that you can play melody and harmony simultaneously. I will also teach you how to read music for your instrument. My lessons are adjusted to the specific student's pace and their learning style. Piano is a great starting instrument for all ages because anything you learn on piano you can apply to most other instruments.

About Andrew
Since 2008 I've been studying and playing music in many different settings. I have performance experience with both classical ensembles and contemporary rock bands. Through these experiences I've learned a lot about writing music, playing music, and ensemble management all within a wide range of musical styles.

Since 2013 I have been teaching and training in various settings. In 2016 I moved out here to the Bay Area and have been teaching music full time. Since I moved my main focus has been to further develop my own personal ability and curriculum for my students. Currently I teach as an instructor at MTS Studios in Sunnyvale CA on a variety of instruments, including guitar, bass guitar, piano and ukulele.

I am looking forward to helping you further your musical goals and aspirations. Feel free to send a question if you want to as
k about anything before starting up.

Coming in as a complete beginner in guitar I was a little nervous about finding a good teacher. I have really enjoyed my lessons with Andrew! He is extremely knowledgeable, his lessons are a good balance of theory and practice and well prepared. He is also incredibly patient when I have to start the same measure 20 times before getting it right or asking the same questions over again. I highly recommend him to anyone!

I will devote my time and energy to help you reach your goals. Teaching piano is one of my passions in life, and I hope to impart that passion to my students in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. Students will enjoy exploring how to improvise, and engage with eye-training and ear-training activities all within a fun-filled context. My lessons are tailored towards beginner and intermediate students.

About David
***Introduction***
Hi, my name is David and I'm a 2012 graduate from Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee with a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree. I'm retired from the Army and teach JROTC in high school in South Carolina.

I use the ABRSM standards as a guideline to teaching piano. I include four main areas to my teaching: Performance skills through pieces or songs. We will work on developing a repertoire of songs. Technical skills through scales and arpeggios. I have a fun way of teaching you scales. Notation skills through sight-reading. This is important to learning how to read faster. Listening skills and Musical Perception through aural exercises. Ear training will help you to be a well-rounded musician.

Questions? To learn more, please click the “Ask a Question” button on my profile to send me a message!

Are you self-ta
ught and interested in refining your skills? I will help you take your piano playing to the next level. My goal is to tailor my lesson style to each individual student. I focus on teaching students the freedom to explore and discover through a combination of different methods that are tailored to each individual.

My method is a combination of methods that I believe will help you meet your goals. Depending on your age and level of experience will determine which method book we will use.

It’s never too soon or too late to build up your musical abilities. I strive to keep my teaching fresh and engaging using new repertoire, music games, along with sight-reading and scale challenging goals that will keep my students engaged and interested to learn more,

It is my hope that my students will discover what interests them the most in music, and find the same joy and satisfaction in reaching those goals as I did. I also hope to pass on the musical knowledge that my teachers and mentors have instilled in me.

*** Lesson Details ***
I offer a free 15 minute video conference to go over your goals and any questions you may have. With all ages I supplement with sight reading and improvisation exercises, along with flashcards as reinforcement. I also incorporate fun and challenging games that my students will love and enjoy doing.

As my students grow as musicians, my hope is that they will discover a love for music, giving them an appreciation of the arts for years to come.

If you’re ready to start, click the green “Book With Me” button on my profile!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Yamaha DGX-520 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard. An internal webcam on my laptop as well as an external Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920, for multiple views.

Went over basics I knew with the first lesson, but now that he has, the basics I knew are now better instilled. I can look at any note and within a second find out which letter and octave it corresponds to on both piano and sheet music. After that he got me to use my hands faster and more accurately by practicing scales. As if his teaching methods weren't good enough, he also has a really flexible schedule. If you are unable to make a lesson, just give a 24 hour notice and he can shift the lessons down a week. The only nuance that I've experienced is that he asks me a few times to change my schedule. I can't complain, since it was a choice though, one that he asks if its ok and then goes forth with it. Much better than tutors for academic subjects I've had, and much better than my Guitar teacher in public school. 3 years of guitar case two weeks with piano, and I feel much comfortable on piano than on guitar already!

I’m a graduate from both Mannes School of Music and Parsons School for Design, Piano Performance and Fashion Design major. I have performed all over the world in different cities concert halls, such as “Carnegie Hall”, “Palais Miller von Aichholz, Vienna, Austria”, Internatipnal Academy at Castelnuovo di Garfagnana in Italy, Sichuan Convervaroty of Music in China, and my own artistic organization in New York which is gathering more than 100 members and 50 experiences top musician in NYC who are graduates from Juilliard, Manhattan and Mannes School of Music in multiple majors, as well as illustrators, fashion designers, photographers and other young artists and audiences.

I can provide my students the best opportunities to perform monthly in front of other professional musicians and artists, get the most useful inspirations on not only the music performance, but also the musical comprehension and imaginations.

About Jinglin
I'm a graduate from both the Mannes College for Music in Piano Performance, and Parsons School for Design for Fashion Design.

Other than the various awards I have won, I am the founder of a popular music & artistic organization in New York City, which aims to provide top young musicians and artists from top music schools, such as Juiliard, Manhattan and Mannes, to share ideas with each other and to inspire audiences to play / show something as well.

I myself as an active pianist, has performed all over the world -
Carnegie Hall in New York City, Palais Miller von Aichholz in Vienna, Concerts in Dresden and Berlin, International Academy of Music in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana in Italy, a Second Class Award from the 16th Hong Kong - Asian Piano Competition in China and so forth.

As a passionate artist, I do not limit my imaginat
ion and creativity as there are unlimited types of languages, formats of art, ways of self-expressions and no one speaks exactly the same to another. For instance, Schoenberg designed his playing cards in private and I went to Parsons and designed my fashion garments on the back of Mannes, eventually I got both my piano concert and my fashion show done together - they were soon exposed by editors from more than ten mainstream medias in China.

As a reliable piano educator, I would teach not only the piano playing techniques and music theory, but also encourages my students to explore their imaginations and self expressions. I am the teacher you should probably expect to bring you / your child to various piano concerts and competitions, but probably not to the level examinations. My goal in education is to inspire students to keep the classical music playing, to be a creative artist and a unique treasure in the world.

Teaching style: Strict, patient, effective and could be a little fun.
Topics: Basic Music Theory, Piano playing techniques and performing tips; Music analysis and "language translations”; a little about life.
