Iā€™m offering a back-to-school special: save 10% when you enroll in a 3-month program of weekly classes. Curriculum will mix a variety of skills, including training your ear, reading music, playing chords, and develop skills that you can take throughout your life.

I work privately with her students to build a curriculum tailored to your needs and goals, which incorporates a mix of pedagogy books, classical music repertoire, games, and technique. My philosophy is focused on making music accessible and enjoyable for all students. Music is a skill that is developed with commitment, routine, and joy. In my lessons, there is an emphasis on:

  • classical, jazz, pop, and contemporary repertoire

  • Analysis (Harmony, Interpretation)

  • Aural Skills

  • Sight-Reading

  • Technique (Scales, Exercises, Etudes)

  • Collaborating and playing with other players

  • Music Theory

  • A wide variety of classical, jazz, pop, and contemporary repertoire

I am currently accepting students in her studio in Bushwick, at their homes in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and via Skype. For more information, please email lyao@msmnyc.edu.
