Eva is wonderful with kids. She is very patient, and she knows how to keep them interested and focused. My kid learned so much in just a few classes!
Very professional and dedicated. Highly recommended.
My daughter went to her first piano lesson last week and she really enjoyed her lesson. Eva was pleasant and she seems to love what she does.
Eva is teaching my daughter French. She made the session fun and interesting for a child, but really made sure that the lesson was instructive.
Eva is patient and skilled, and is an expert in piano. Many years of experience teaching is readily apparent after sitting with her for just one lesson. She has a natural gift to make you feel at-ease at the piano, and immediate suggestions in a graceful way to help one on the path to piano delight. A+
Eva is just marvelous!If you are looking for an experienced, professional musician who will tailor your musical needs to a specific plan of action, this is the person that you should contact. I have had a half-dozen wonderful theory instructors, and Eva is right up there! She will listen to you and then formulate a plan. She will explain the hows and whys of the plan and still engage you in the decisions made, which are always open for change. Eva is enthusiastic and loves what she does, so I could not help but enjoy myself! I am really looking forward to my next session and my musical growth with her.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I taught music composition in the Conservatory program of the CPSM (Center for Preparatory Studies in Music) of Queens College/CUNY.
My approach to teaching composition is to provide a foundation so that students can express their musical ideas in any style. I start with simple exercises. I believe that one should never impose a musical style on a student.
I studied ear-training intensively at the Juilliard Pre-College Division for several years. When I entered college at Barnard College/Columbia University, I was given advanced placement in the subject area.
I taught Ear-Training at the CPSM Program of Queens College/CUNY for several years with great success. I also taught ear-training skills in the Sight-Singing Program in the NY City Public Schools with excellent results.
I define general music as all of the rudiments of music: understanding of meter, tempo, register, the meaning of the musical staff, clefs, and musical styles.
I am a professional composer and harpsichordist. I hold two master's degrees in music: one in music composition and the other is music education.
I have taught the rudiments of music to students in grades K-6 and also more advanced musical analysis to students in grades 3-12, including students with special needs. I have also worked with adults.
I hold a NY State Teacher's Certificate in Music.
I have a very broad knowledge of music history. I studied music history as an undergraduate and in a post-secondary environment. As a graduate student, I studied music history.
I taught music theory for three years to both elementary school and high school students in the CPSM Program of Queens College/CUNY. I have also taught music theory to adults.
I have taught piano to students of all ages and levels, including adults. I also taught piano four hands at the Center for Preparatory Studies in Music in the Musicianship Program at Queens College/CUNY.
I was a piano major for many years as a student at the Juilliard Pre-College Division.
When I was teaching in the NYC Public Schools, I was the pianist for innumerable school shows. Some were held at Herbert H. Lehman College at Lehman Center. In addition, I have performed some of my own compositions for piano.
I established a sight-singing program for NYC Public School students in the fourth and fifth grade and served as a judge for the "Sight Singing Celebration" which was the culmination of the program. I taught the subject for three years.
I also taught sight-singing for an additional three years in the CPSM Program of Queens College/CUNY.
I use Kodaly hand signals in my teaching of this subject.
