About Me

I am a classically trained pianist with a B.A. and  M.A. in Piano Performance from Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College, where I studied with the renowned pianist Leon Pommers.  I have many years of experience as both a performer and a teacher.  I enjoy all types of music, and I offer my students the chance to learn many different styles. We also cover ear training, music theory, rhythm training, and they are given the opportunity to perform in recitals several times a year.  It is a pleasure to help people learn to play the piano, and it is a lot of fun!

My Musical Education Background

I began studying piano at a very early age, and also studied organ soon after, playing the pipe organ in church for many years.

Student Reviews

New Rochelle, NY

Ann is a great communicator and instructor. She makes learning fun. Ann taught me for about one year, but I had to stop due to financial limitations. I highly recommend her.
