"Expert one-on-one service from a professional musician/teacher who cares about each and every student who walks thru the door. My goal is to invite the student to begin to enjoy the rewards of working hard and playing hard -- at the piano and IN LIFE. There comes a time in every student's life when they face a turning point...they either rise to the challenge and make visible progress OR....they keep giving the minimum effort and never feel the joy of achievement at the piano. My service helps the student take this leap and seamlessly pass from beginner to intermediate to early advanced, and beyond. I very much enjoy using the tools I was shown by my master teachers in order to guide my young pianists to excellence and proficiency. As a teacher, I am interested in fostering the love of music and in particular, the enchantment with the PIANO! One does not have to be a grand master to enjoy sitting at the instrument and bringing forth the sound of melodies, harmonies, hands crossing over one another, the discovery of the language of music, for indeed, it is like learning a new language. And it is with this in mind, I am intent on watching my students closely and devising their weekly lesson plans so as to help them go home with a clarity of purpose and with luck, inspiration to improve and progress. They are advised to phone me with problems and difficulties so they don't waste time practicing incorrectly. I devote time for all my young musicians-in-the-making whenever possible and encourage them to listen to classical music, especially, and to attend concerts and programs with their parents. It builds interest and curiosity. The ability to play the piano is a lifelong endeavor, a thrill in the best of times, and a solace in difficult times. Watching my students grow and mature in life and in music and knowing I played a part in this dramatic process! I also like being a mentor and friend to my young musicians-in-the-making. Tuition -- I have four levels of pricing: 1) very young children age 6 to 8 ($40 per 1/2 hr.) 2) children age 8 to 11 ($45 per 3/4 hr.) 3) older students from 12 to 21 ($48 per hr.) 4) Adults from age 22 -- ($55 per hr.) * Mature adults (65 yrs. & up) $5 off the adult fee"

"♪Do you want to take your playing to a whole new level? Whether beginner or pro, send me a hand typed message if you'd consider coming to my studio (Setauket / Stony Brook) for a one-of-a-kind learning experience. I also travel locally and do FaceTime / Skype lessons. If you're intrigued, I'd love to hear from you! Please include your cell & good time to reach you. I cover a wide range of possible students & goals, so it's cool if you just want to skim below. So, here's a little about me. I'm classically trained, have been teaching for almost 20 years, & regularly perform as a concert / cocktail pianist. You may hear some recordings of mine & my students' at my website link: SoundCloud.com/danpianoman As an instructor, I dedicate myself to my students and make efforts to go above and beyond in quality, helping students to learn what they love, find personal meaning for music in their lives, understand how to learn it on their own, and optionally prepare for a variety of performances (up-to 5 opportunities per month!) ♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫ I follow a constructionist / humanistic teaching approach: in which I teach the 'person' as much as the subject matter, and help the student to grow through their own personal understanding, rather than a didactic approach of only giving commands. I've taught students aged 3 to 73! You can learn virtually any style, ranging from: classical music, show tunes, jazz, video game themes, cultural folk tunes, improvisation, holiday, and or modern popular music. The wide breadth of students I teach include: 1) Music Educators, including piano teachers, who wish to become become more proficient or adept at piano, or improve their own teaching 2) High achievers of all levels 3) Advanced students looking to switch teachers 4) Intermediate & Elementary students 5) Complete beginners of all ages, who are willing to dedicate time each day to the piano, even if only for an initial trial period to see if they like it enough to make a regular commitment 6) Adults who want to reconnect with piano after decades away from it 7) Professional musicians 8) Undergraduate music majors 9) Self-taught pianists 10) Students with special needs and talents Lessons of any length vary in frequency from: 1) once per week 2) two or more lessons per week 3) or in special circumstances: less frequently I usually teach in my home/studio in Setauket, but also travel locally to students' homes, and have taught online via Facetime/Skype, and videoconferencing software in which students may receive live & or pre-recorded instruction I strive to help all students improve their practice efficacy, technique, artistry, & overall musicianship. The diversity of individualized lesson goals include, listed below in order from more intense to less: 1) Becoming a professional pianist / instructor, or a higher quality performer / teacher Preparing for any combination of: 2) College or graduate auditions or recordings (I have prepared students to attend and graduate as music majors at Ithaca, Fredonia, Stony Brook, Hofstra, & SCCC. A former student whom I taught starting from a beginner's method book up through advanced repertoire recently got accepted for a doctorate in music at Juilliard.) 3) Concerto competition auditions (My high school student two, got to perform as the featured soloist with his school orchestra, and with the Stony Brook University Orchestra) 4) Your own full-length solo, duo, or senior recital 5) Piano competitions (Several of my students compete annually at a competition at Steinway Piano Gallery. I have had several students win 1st place and cash prizes, ranging from elementary to late advanced divisions. Several of my students have been selected to perform at the NYSSMA All-State Conference Piano Showcase in Rochester) 6) Professional performances at weddings, anniversaries, & other formal events 7) Playing for your own holiday gathering or dinner party 8) NYSSMA, Piano Guild, ABRSM, & or Royal Conservatory of Music festivals / adjudications 9) Recital performances at Staller Center, Steinway Gallery, Faust Harrison Pianos, and or private residences, as well as being featured at school assemblies or accompanying your choir 10) Performing in a library lobbies, the middle of shopping malls, ballet classes, art galleries, or family gatherings 11) Senior living and hospital volunteer performances Students may wish to perform in the more traditional avenues listed above, or may take a more creative avenue, such as: 12) Multi-media opportunities of combining music with other creative outlets, such as poetry, dance, visual arts, you-tube, facebook, instagram, etc. 13) Collaborating with other musicians & friends, such as playing in a band or forming a music duo 14) Only performing in service of others rather than being in the spotlight - such as volunteering, playing in benefit concerts, & creating musical gifts for friends and relatives 15) Or learning just for one's own personal fulfillment, (only performing for oneself with no one else in the room) Depending on each student's individual needs and interests, we may also work on theory, ear-playing, improvisation, composition, sight-singing, overcoming stage-fright, and or fostering a healthy mindset. I have taught many students with special needs, as well as geniuses who need someone to help them achieve their potential, and those in between. For young children, I mix fun games, imaginative creative learning, stuffed animals, prizes, and positive work habits to set them on the path to loving the piano and being great at it! Please see my student reviews below, and check out my Facebook teaching page. I love facilitating student potential and discovery!"

"Hi! I am Lisa, a Juilliard and Oberlin grad, currently pursuing a PhD in music composition. I am a multi-style musician and composer, I play classical, jazz, do songwriting, produce electronic music, and score films and video games. I've been teaching all ages of students for many years. My teaching style is personal and inspiring as I try to be creative to help my students individually on what specifically can benefit their music study and design the best routine for each of their musical studying paths. I am living in Orange County, California. Lessons can take place at my studio or remotely online. Venues that I have performed and given recitals are all over the world including Germany, France, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Canada, as well as the Kennedy Center and Morgan Library in New York City in the US, and many cities in China. I have proficiency in many different aspects of music, so as my student, you can technically study any of the following with me: music theory, piano playing (classical, pop, jazz), songwriting, composition, screen scoring, and more. Having a professional and experienced teacher makes huge difference in just a couple lessons no matter how old you are and how much experiences you have, even if you are a total beginner. I work with children older than 5 years old, no younger, that way I can start and prepare the students with the most authentic knowledge that they need to know and practice so later on, they will have a solid basement of their music study. However, I think it is very important and beneficial for adults to learn music as well because music is not just for children, it is for everybody. And you can learn so much faster. It is totally possible to have your own performing show after studying with me for several months. Be able to play a list of repertoires that you enjoy is a great accomplishment and joy to add to your life. In terms of seriousness and goal, it will be up to the students. If they have a passion for pursuing music professionally, my 20 years of professional experience can guide them with ease and authenticity. If the students wish to enjoy the music and just learn it for fun, which I think is really important, I can also structure the lessons in a way that will feed their musical interests while having a more relaxed and inspiring approach. In general, I am always trying to be friends with my students regardless of what's their age. Each one of us is a beautiful human being and music is about sharing beauty. Every buck you spent on my music lessons will be worthy and beneficial! :)"
