Noah is very knowledgable about piano and music in general. He's extremely easy to learn from, and he will cater lessons to accommodate where you want your piano playing to go!

My 12 years old son has been given pianolessons from Noah for the last few weeks and he loves it! Noah is very friendly and is a very professional teacher. His lesson is fun, clear to understand and easy going so my son never feels any pressure. He is so excited to have more lessons with Noah in the future!

I've been taking pianolessons with Jon since the beginning of May 2017. Jon is as great a teacher as I could have asked for. It's evident that his goal is to see me reach my full potential as a piano player.
Jon's encouragement has been instrumental in my growth as a piano player. In areas that I might doubt myself, Jon shows confidence in me.
My lessons with Jon are focused, productive, and challenging. Jon provides feedback in an honest way, in the interest of developing my ability as a piano player. Jon's easy-going demeanor creates an environment that is conducive to learning.
I am so pleased to have Jon as my teacher. My growth as a player has been due, in large part, to the things I learn during my lessons with Jon. I am excited to continue taking lessons with Jon, as I have seen his teachings come to fruition in my piano playing.
I recommend Jon to piano players of all skill-levels.
I knew I had chosen the best piano teacher for my daughter when she said, "I don't want to leave!! I want to come back for another lesson tomorrow!!".
Tammy Ying is a gem. Not only is she an incredibly talented musician, it's also apparent that she is great with young children. My 6 year old daughter left her first lesson excited and anxious to practice. After only the third lesson, she was able to play a song with both hands, which makes her feel very accomplished! Tammy uses age appropriate piano books and takes the time to jump to specific song lessons to fit my daughter's skill level.
Tammy is very easy to communicate with via text for a quick response which is invaluable for parents on the go the timing of little ones to drop off/pick up... in my case a 6 year old and a 3 year old...(future student perhaps??).
You will get everything you've hoped for in a piano teacher with Tammy!

Devon is a wonderful teacher. I am an adult who has taken pianolessons for many years, and I have learned a great deal from Devon in a very short time. We are working on improvisation and he has a unique ability to break down difficult info into easy to understand bits. I highly recommend Devon.
Myla is a terrific piano teacher for adults with some experience. The lessons are fun and stress-free but not "easy." Since I have started with her, I find that I am improving and practicing more because she has ingenious tricks and tools for addressing problem areas. She has a good sense of humor and a relaxed manner. I highly recommend her
John is a super patient and caring teacher with lots of knowledge which he accurately tailors for me and my lessons. Very easy to get along with and incredibly helpful. I went in having never touched a piano before and he made me feel super comfortable and gives me both the positive feedback and direction on what I need to work on most. Highly recommend!

It’s never easy to pick your piano teacher, especially when you’re a beginner. David demonstrated a great deal of professionalism and patience in the first (trial) lesson. Before I met David, I already tried few teachers and was very uncertain about whether I should begin my piano journey or not. Not only is David experienced in performing but he’s also dedicated in teaching, and he’s passionate about finding the right method for each student.
He’s a trustworthy teacher who’s relentless on sharing his own musical experiences and teaching his methodology in great details. How to relax your arms, how to put your weight while practicing, how to read music,(as a beginner) how to overcome obstacles physically and psychologically. Through his methods, I was able to approach music more efficiently. After very few lessons, I began to feel some improvement and stated to feel the joy in solving problems. And now I’m increasing my lessons from one-hour to two-hour per week. This is definitely the best musical decision I’ve made and I’d recommend David to anyone who’s interested in learning piano and music theory.

David is a fantastic piano teacher and a pleasure to work with. I’ve been studying virtually with David in 1.5 hour weekly lessons since near the start of the pandemic (about 6 months now). Previously I studied piano for about a year in high school. Within 6 months I’ve learned much more than I could have hoped in this time (and much more than in the year of study with other teachers) - including already performing Menuet in G Major by Bach, Meryton Townhall by Henry Purcell and Georgiana by Dario Marinelli (from the Pride & Prejudice soundtrack), and currently working on my first Debussy prélude. David has enabled me to move past what I initially viewed as long term stretch goals and turn them into short to medium term goals. When I initially began my lessons, my fiancé, who had intended to teach himself with a combination of piano books, training videos and applications, quickly assessed both the quality of David’s lessons and my progression working with David and began taking lessons with David as well (we have now begun learning duets in addition to our solo pieces). David is both an excellent piano player and teacher, and has devoted much study and practice into preparing teaching methodologies that enable his students to progress rapidly and to develop good habits from the outset. To that end, David teaches you how to teach yourself to learn pieces and to practice most efficiently, recognizing that we are all short on time. In so doing, he takes into account your own personal tendencies, strengths and weaknesses and helps you to develop plans how to proceed outside of lesson time. David also provides a wealth of opportunities to perform for other students, and teaches a performance mindset so that his students are ready at any time to perform the pieces in their current repertoire. (This performance mindset is also transferable to work and other aspects of life.) I’ve performed over zoom and FaceTime for over a dozen students during my lessons, and that is not to mention the studio session that we participated in last month in which David’s students all performed (which also served to help teach listening critically to performances), and a forthcoming recital. David also teaches his students musicality in performing, and I can attest to this quality stemming from his teaching as I’ve now heard so many of his students perform. As David noted in one of my lessons, in a simple piece a beginner can sound like a professional if the player performs with musicality. David also pays great attention to detail, which shows both in our correspondence and during lessons. He was extremely prompt to respond to my initial Thumbtack inquiry and communicating with David has been extremely easy ever since.

I always look forward to the next pianolesson with Andy who makes overall learning process easy and very enjoyable: he is very dedicated and oriented on making you understand the very matter of music and the instrument by using great variety of learning technics. I especially appreciate his flexibility in finding individual approch and definitely see how hard he is working on helping you to achieve your goals. Andy is a very enjoyable person to deal with and his positive energy, constant encouragement and dedication make him a great teacher- I am really happy that I met him and definetely suggest him for everybody who is trying to find nice and committed professional in NYC.
I am an experienced pianist, but have taken a number of years off to focus on my career. Decided to work with David as a teacher to get back into training and to prepare for a solo recital. David's lessons are very valuable and suitable for pianists at any level. I started off at 1 hour per week but have increased to 2 hours per week because of the value. More specifically, I have (within 2 months) made great process on my ability to add shaping and balance to pieces. I brought a rusty version of the Minute Waltz to him about 6-7 weeks ago that he has helped me bring to performance level. I also feel that my ability to critically listen has dramatically improved during the time. David also teaches me piano theory to get my understanding of piano up to my playing ability. Lastly, David is incredibly easy to reach by phone or text and will field questions from me about my practice throughout the week. It is incredibly helpful to have a teacher that responsive and committed to my learning.
