Prospect Park Piano
Piano, Songwriting & Music Production Lessons
Hi there! I'm a piano, songwriting and music production teacher in the Prospect Park area. I've been teaching for many years to both young people and adults. I tailor my lessons to my students, giving them the skills they need to play and create the music they love.
Music improves kids' development academically and socially. They have the fun of short term payoffs--playing versions of songs they love--and then longer-term payoffs as they gain greater mastery. It gives them ways to connect socially with peers and a lifetime of joy and satisfaction playing music.
For adults, there is no time like the present to revisit your dream of playing piano. Some people have had difficult experiences with teachers when they were growing up. I make sure that lessons are tailored to each student, so that both adults and children make steady and enjoyable progress as they learn music that excites them.
For teens and adults, I also offer songwriting and music production classes. You'd be surprised by how quickly and easily you can start writing and recording your own music at home, with minimal start up costs. As a professional songwriter and producer, I can guide you through that process.
I am fully vaccinated. I currently offer online lessons with an in-person option for fully vaccinated students.
In my own career, I have written songs for Disney (the animated feature Tinkerbell and the Pirate Fairy), PBS Kids TV, MTV, NPR and multiple Off-Broadway musicals, including the award-winning Nobody Loves You which premiered at Second Stage Theater. Other shows of mine have been produced in theaters all over the country, Japan, Australia and the UK. I've also co-written songs for MC Frontalot which have been streamed millions of times on Youtube and Spotify.
