***Due to extremely high demand, my studio is currently at maximum capacity. Please message me if you would like to be put on the waitlist and if you have read everything here carefully. If you are extremely serious about the piano, please write that in your message and I may make an exception or at least you may given higher priority on the waitlist. Also, if you are a piano teacher yourself and wish to improve your teaching / learn how to become a better piano teacher / build a piano studio of your own while studying with me, I do particularly enjoy training teachers and may make an exception for you (so please mention that in your message). I am based in Brooklyn, NY and now have many online students. At this point, I accept only reliable, weekly, online, long-term students. All lessons are currently online for the foreseeable future (at least until masks and social distancing are no longer required) and eventually, lessons will be online, in-person (at my home studio here in Brooklyn, NY; I do not travel to students), or a combination of both, but students must be willing to go online in case of virus resurgences. At least 1 hour lessons are highly recommended for serious progress in almost all cases. Lessons are $110 for 1 hour, $90 for 45 minutes, and $70 for 30 minutes. Please feel free to read my full profile below, see my reviews, view my media both here and on social media (search “davidwchangmusic” on Instagram or “david chang piano” on YouTube) if seriously interested*** ***A second announcement: at this point, I should note again that I am primarily interested in teaching students that are serious about the piano and about progressing quickly. It doesn’t mean necessarily that you must practice a lot, but it certainly could, and at the very least you should have a dedication to the piano that goes beyond piano being a mere “activity” to pass the time. At this point, most of my students are currently adults (by my choice), but I am open to accepting children that are well-behaved and dedicated to serious progress. For younger children, parent involvement both in and out of lessons is crucial and for older children, a moderate amount of involvement may be necessary depending on age and the individual child.*** Hello all! I am a professional musician with a bachelor's degree in music education from New York University and a master's degree in piano performance from Manhattan School of Music. I have created many unique methodologies that detail how to learn and memorize music with maximum efficiency (much more information a few paragraphs down). And of course, I show my students how to conquer technical and musical difficulties in order to develop into artists with their own voices. As a result, my students often progress extremely quickly and attain high levels of playing in a fraction of the usual time required. They also seem to truly enjoy the process. Lessons take place either online/remotely or at my home studio in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn (somewhat near the Barclays Center and Prospect Park), where I have a baby grand piano for use in the lessons. Because of the coronavirus situation, temporarily ALL of my lessons are online. Although I currently only accept piano students due to high demand, I have also taught guzheng (古箏) / Chinese harp, voice, frame drum, clarinet, and saxophone. I am a current Thumbtack Top Pro and Steinway Educational Partner and teach full-time. I have had students come to me from as far away as Queens, upper Manhattan, the Bronx, New Jersey, and Long Island. At this point, I only accept students who will take long-term, weekly, online lessons. At least 1 hour weekly lessons are highly recommended for serious progress and many students now also take lessons longer than 1 hour. I now offer two student recitals for all ages (see my pictures!) and four studio classes for adults a year. Most of my current students are adults and they have expressed that they really enjoy the sense of community they experience as a result of attending the studio classes and meeting other adult learners. I have taught students of all ages (3 and up) and abilities for over 18 years and have prepared students for ABRSM exams, NYSSMA exams, specialized middle school and high school auditions, pre-college programs, college auditions (to major in music), other auditions, guzheng (古箏) exams, competitions, and all types of performances. I have also served as a judge for both NYSSMA and piano competitions. Of course, I have also taught many students who are learning just for themselves. If you are a beginner and/or don't know how to read sheet music, I can definitely help you! If you are interested in learning how to play the piano while singing, I can definitely help as well. Finally, I also welcome serious students of piano who are thinking about making classical music into a career choice. Additionally, I also offer both pedagogy and business training to prospective or current piano teachers who want to improve their teaching and/or are trying to expand their own piano studios. I have helped many other professional pianists and teachers who have inquired about my methodologies (both for themselves and for their students) and my students include and have included those who are piano teachers themselves. And as one of the most in-demand piano teachers on Thumbtack throughout the entire country (one of the top even amongst the Top Pros), I am happy to share my business expertise as well. My teaching methodologies include how to learn and memorize with maximum efficiency (I have spent the last few years specifically researching and creating many methodologies); how to solve technical / mechanical / relaxation issues (including how to achieve much greater speed and control); how to achieve extremely high levels of musicality, nuance, and expression; how to express yourself musically and connect with your inner self; how to rapidly gain autonomy and independence from the teacher; how to practice physically, mentally, and emotionally; how to set and achieve goals; how to use both motivation and willpower to your advantage; and much more besides. One of the unique components of my lessons is that I teach very specifically what I like to think of as the art of practicing itself (derived from the methodologies I created). I coach students on how to logically solve all technical and musical difficulties (at least the aspects of music that CAN be logically solved) and then train them to be as independent of me as possible. This helps to unlock the door to true musical expression. Although I was born and raised in New York, I can teach lessons in either English or Mandarin Chinese. I have performed at such venues as Steinway Hall, Lincoln Center, Leith Hill Place (Surrey, UK), WeArts Theatre (Shanghai), Parsons Music Performance Center (Shanghai), Fazioli Piano Center (Taipei), the Bitter End, the Soapbox Gallery, Sullivan Hall, Flushing Town Hall, Molloy College, James C. Colgate Hall, the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office of New York, the Tenri Cultural Institute of New York, Black Box Theatre (NYU), Frederick Loewe Theatre (NYU), the Skirball Center (NYU), Goldmark Hall (Mannes), Pforzheimer Hall (MSM), Greenfield Hall (MSM), Yamaha Piano Salon, Prague Conservatory, Jan Deyl Conservatory (Prague), the Jazz Dock (Prague), the Centro Municipal Integrado El Llano (Gijón, Spain), and the Centro Municipal Integrado Pumarín (Gijón, Spain). I have participated in both the Gijón International Piano Festival (Spain) and the International Keyboard Institute and Festival (New York), and have played in masterclasses for Robert McDonald, Yuan Sheng, José Ramos Santana, Nina Lelchuk, Gabriele Leporatti, Alexandre Moutouzkine, Amy Gustafson, Anthony de Mare, and Eduardus Halim. In 2018, I gave solo piano recitals in both New York and Taipei. Last year (2019), I was the featured performer at the Manhattan International Film Festival. Also in 2019, I gave four solo piano recitals in New York, Shanghai (where I gave a masterclass as well), and Surrey (UK). In fall 2019, I performed in the New York Arabic Orchestra. This year (2020), instead of giving recitals, I am conducting more extensive research into learning and memorizing massive amounts of repertoire with maximum efficiency. Please feel free to message me with any questions you might have. I am genuinely passionate about teaching and sincerely care about each of my students. And if you are a part of my studio, you will find that I am very responsive and willing to help however I can. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals. Thank you!See more

It’s wonderful that you want to explore learning piano! The piano is a beautiful instrument that can be difficult to master without the right teacher. I teach the very best techniques and develop an individual program tailored to each student, so you can learn to play beautiful music! Because of the Covid -19 situation, I’ve moved all piano lessons online, via zoom. I'm proficient in several languages, including English, Portuguese, Spanish and French. I’m Dr. Michele Cohen, and I grew up in Salvador, Brazil. My love of piano took me to the States, where I earned a Doctorate in Piano Performance from Indiana University and was mentored by some of the top pianists in the world. I have performed concerts at the prestigious Carnegie Hall and Steinway Hall in New York, the Brazilian Embassy in DC, and the Myra Hess Memorial Concert Series at the Chicago Cultural Center. I have also taught piano classes at Indiana University School of Music and most recently, I have developed a Musical Arts Program at the International Schools in Beijing, China. With over 20 years of experience, I teach students of all ages, from beginners to career pianists. My winning program takes the very best practices from pianists around the world, and each student will learn perfect technique developed from many years of experimenting! This allows you to play without tension, freely and beautifully at the piano. You will learn to focus on expression, crafting a sound that is uniquely your own. You will even learn the secret that makes reading music easy, using my unique interval-based method. Music Theory, History and Improvisation skills are always integrated in lessons in order to expose each student to the vast possibilities of Music as an expressive language. From the beginning, you will have access to the full-range of the piano. For parents, your children will develop a love and appreciation for music. With time, you will learn the art of improvisation, building creativity and fluency. Many of my students have gone on to win scholarships and professional competitions around the country. I’m happy to talk to you about your goals with piano lessons!See more

Degrees: B.M in Vocal Performance from the Hartt School of Music. Karina is an operatic Soprano who currently resides in New York. She Began studying music at age 10. Since then, Karina has performed at venues such as Carnegie Hall and Radio City. She has travelled with the Alion Baltic International Festival and given numerous concerts in Estonia. She has also performed as Ms. Jessel from The Turn Of The Screw in Boston while participating in the New England Opera Intensive Program. Her most recent performance was in January 2020 as Susanna in Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro with the New York Lyric Opera at the National Opera Center. Experience: -Show Choir Director for the YMCA Footlights program in Hartford, CT from 2015- 2018 -Music To Your Home in New York, NY- 2018-2019 -MusiKa in New York, NY- 2018-2019 -I School of Music 2019-Present My Method My methods of teaching vary depending on how old my student is and their current level. For example, with a young beginner I will start off by teaching them the scale. (DO RE MI FA SOL LA TI DO) and showing them how each note correlates with a specific pitch. I will then sing the warm up with them a few times until they can do it on their own. I also like to do rhythm exercises with my younger students for example I will clap a rhythm and have them clap it back to me. I will assign repertoire that is appropriate for their level. An example of this could be the little mermaid song 'Part of Your World'. If I am teaching an intermediate student I will do warm ups up and down the octaves on vowels e-eh-ah-oh-ooh, I will also do staccato exercises as well as teaching breathing techniques. Adequate repertoire will be assigned perhaps "Caro Mio Ben". If I am teaching an advanced student, I will work on technique,stage presence, as well as proper singing posture and exercises to help transfer between passaggios (registers) in their voice. Lesson Style: I like to keep my students motivated. I like to set goals for myself as a teacher, and also expect my students to set goals for themselves. An example of this could be the student's goal to attend three auditions per year, or they want to learn how to sing for a school talent show, or they are preparing for NYSSMA/ABRSM.See more
