Introduction: With more than 25 years of experience teaching piano, music theory, ear training, and other subjects, my aim is to advance your goals as a music student, whether that is mastering a piano piece or learning to appreciate the music you listen to, every day. I received my music education (Bachelor's, Master's) at The Juilliard School, and at the Eastman School of Music (Doctorate). I have taught piano at Third Street School and Adelphi University, and Music Theory, History, and Ear Training at Juilliard and Mannes Pre-Colleges, Queens College, and SUNY Purchase. For a number of years I ran the music program at the Special Music School, and I am currently the Director of the Conservatory of Music at Purchase College. I am located in the northern Bronx (Bedford Park neighborhood), but during the virus outbreak I am teaching online.

Jenny is a wonderful piano teacher! Her passion for music is evident. She explains the theory behind a piece of music as well as the techniques and style around playing it which allows for a greater connection with the music and a richer experience while playing. She is very observant and provides helpful tips for fingering, technique, and practicing. I have only had three lessons with her and am already learning a great deal (we meet virtually and I don’t feel as though anything is lacking). She follows up lessons by sending helpful videos and practice pieces. With Jenny I am learning more about the instrument itself, working towards playing by ear, deepening my knowledge about classical music, and of course learning and strengthening fundamental playing/reading skills and technique. She is very knowledgeable but also super personable which makes for a fantastic teacher, highly recommend!

I have only had one lesson so far but the experience was so rewarding. I have wanted to learn to play the keyboard and I am so glad that I found Ms Undercofler. She is extremely personable and very patient. She encourages you to do your best. I will continue to take lessons from her and I highly rate her for anyone looking for a piano teacher

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We will spend a few minutes talking about your previous musical background (if any); any goals you might have, short-term, or long-term, specific pieces you want to work on, etc. Generally we follow the format in the first lesson that we will loosely follow in subsequent sessions: some technique work (finger exercises, scales, posture, etc), some work on pieces/music, some work on theory vocabulary (we may cover this in the pieces and exercises as well), and some basic improvisation work using the materials we've covered. I try and follow each lesson by emailing you my notes and any relevant materials.
