Introduction: Greetings! I am a full-time professional performing musician with a degree from The Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, and am currently adjunct faculty at NYU and Columbia University. Started teaching piano on the side for fun, and enjoyed it so much I’m now looking to expand my studio. I’m experienced teaching kids and adults of all ages and ability levels. My goal is to provide a fun, disciplined atmosphere where the students are comfortable and challenged. Online teaching during Covid-19 has been effective, and it’s a wonderful solo activity for kids of all ages. I love seeing the joy of my students discovering music and instilling a sense of personal responsibility and discipline in my students, which can have cross-training educational benefits. And I strive to make learning music fun!

Mr. Mark is a wonderful teacher. My boys have been taking piano lessons with him since January. The transition to virtual classes was very easy. He is very attentive with both my boys. The kids have learned so much in the past 6 months and really enjoy and really look forward for their piano lessons with Mr. Mark.

My son has been with Mr Mark for almost 2 years. Mr Mark is very patient, responsible. He’s always willing to give more. During the pandemic, we had to choose virtual class with Mr Mark, but it didn’t reduce the quality of the lesson. In addition, Mr Mark always record the music that my son needs to practice after the class, so my son can better understand it. I think Mr Mark is a wonderful teacher and my son is very enjoyed every time when he has class with Mr Mark.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    $35/half hour in my home or via internet. $40/half hour in your home (Leonia vicinity only). I'm on the music faculty of NYU, Columbia University, and Rutgers University. Special lower rate for local students.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am an active performer which gives my teaching an edge. I stress the basics of rhythm and accuracy, and expect weekly improvements from my students.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I have been playing piano since age 6, and woodwind instruments since middle school. My intense training at the Curtis Institute as a performer led me to a wonderful career as a musician. I find sharing music with students truly joyful. Teaching music is a vocation, a calling, it feels very natural to me.
