About Me

I have been teaching in the area for 12 years. I am well-established and belong to several groups in the area including Westchester Musicians Guild and also piano teacher groups.

I believe I have an excellent method for teaching youngsters to read and am a follower of the Bryanskaya approach. I have had much success with this approach and look forwarding to teaching your children so that you can see just how successful it is.

I believe selecting the right pieces is of the utmost importance and can make or break an effort to start piano lessons or a return to lessons. For this reason, great effort is taken to make sure that the student loves the music he/she is working on.

As a concert performer myself, just Google me and you will be able to find videos.

I look forward to hearing from you and to hearing you play!

My Musical Education Background

Juilliard Master of Music Degree 1982

Genres and Subjects Taught

I have a holistic approach and therefore theory and technique are integrated from the start.

My specialty is classical although if a student is extremely motivated and has time, I can teach jazz as well.

Improv is always encouraged and I will help all students to express themselves through the instrument (and even to compose)!

I believe that the student's musical education has to be carefully architected. For this reason, all selections are chosen with great care.

Lesson Rates

Not the cheapest. Lessons taught in comfortable home in good neighborhood.

Ages / Skill Levels Taught

I take students from 6 1/2 years old to 72.

If the student is very young, they must exhibit courtesy and be able to sit for 30 minutes.

My Certifications and Awards

These are literally too many to mention. If you bring your child for a trial lesson I have them in a book to show you.

My Musical Influences

My greatest musical influence was my first teacher. I will share others with you once you begin your studies with me.
