In-home piano lessons for students of all ages in the New York City Area. Give your child the gift of playing this beautiful instrument, or learn it yourself! It is never too late, and I mean never!

Methodology

My teaching method is based on a customized approach for each and every student, emphasizing technical brilliance and learning specific skills the right way from the very beginning. I prioritize development of outstanding technique first and foremost; from this starting point a student can then learn to incorporate expressiveness and draw the emotion from the keys.
I begin the lesson with the specific pieces of music that the student is learning; that way they can immediately dive into the music that they are interested in playing--this is the more fun part of the lesson. The goal is to develop a knowledge and technical mastery of the piece line by line, one hand at a time, and if progress allows, to combine the hands together, but everything done one section at a time. Near the end of the lesson, we will tackle scales, progressive runs, and other more tedious technical exercises that will allow the student to create a masterful control of the keys.
