My goal is to help improve students' lives by helping them reap the benefits of playing the piano. I use musical games to help draw kids into the joys of music, and tailor lessons to meet the needs and satisfy the interests of each individual student.

Comprehensive development of skills

 I teach several skills that are essential to learning how to play music.  This ensures all-around development and means I can cater to different types of learners. These skills include ear-training, music theory, note-reading, technique, improvisation, and musicianship. 


I play for my students during lessons and also play recordings of music that will inspire them to keep practicing and develop their appreciation of music.



  • How young can kids start piano lessons? My youngest students have started at age five and are doing well; however, some families choose to wait until children are six or seven to begin lessons. 
  • What are your rates? My rates are $60 for 30 minutes, $80 for 45 minutes, and $100 for an hour. 
  • How long should lessons be? I suggest that children take 30-minute lessons in the beginning and work up to 45- or 60-minute lessons.  For adults, I recommend 45- or 60-minute lessons.
  • How often should lessons occur? Lessons should occur once a week to ensure retention and development.
  • Where do you teach? I am currently teaching in Rye, Larchmont, Brooklyn, the Upper East Side, and Harlem.
