Free Consultation

If you are interested in taking piano lessons with me, and if you would like more information, I invite you to a free 45-minute in-person consultation.

At the consultation you will get a sense of my approach to teaching in order to determine if you would like to start regular lessons with me.

For beginning children:
The consultation will serve as a sample piano lesson in which I will teach some keyboard basics, posture and hand position, and basic aspects of note reading using an appropriate piece of music. Your child will begin to play and have something to take home to practice.

For children who play piano:
Your child may play any pieces they know or are currently working on. I will give my assessment of their abilities and readiness to begin studying with me.

What older students and adult beginners can expect at the consultation:

  • You will have the opportunity to talk about your goals and also play the piano.
  • I will give you my assessment of your technical strengths and weaknesses and we'll explore how I can help you.
  • You will be able to ask any questions you might have.

This time together will give you a chance to decide if you would like to study with me - help you decide if you are comfortable with my personality and feel confident in my approach to teaching. It is also an opportunity for me to get to know you and your playing so that I have a basis for working with you.

If you would like to schedule a consultation, you may use my contact form to send me an e-mail or call me at 917.595.7137.

I teach in my Brooklyn Heights studio where, through an integration of traditional piano lessons and mindfulness awareness techniques, together we discover and develop your natural musical self. I also teach via FaceTime and Skype.

Have a question?

Community Composition
On September 18, 2016 I launched a community music project in which 64 Brooklynites rolled dice to add notes to a composition. The winning title is: Bits Of Brooklyn.
