Itai IN-HOME PIANO LESSONS -Itai is a pianist, singer-songwriter, and educator. He graduated from SUNY Purchase with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Composition in 2007, and from Hebrew College with a Master's Degree in Jewish Education in 2016, and has been teaching piano since 2007. As he discovered that he likes teaching, Itai continued his career in education in other settings, such as after-school programs, religious school, and summer camps. Aside from piano instruction, Itai's music teaching has taken other forms, particularly leading groups in song. In his musician life, Itai plays various styles including jazz, klezmer, blues, folk, and rock. At piano lessons at all levels, Itai combines classical methods with musicianship skills such as ear training and improvisation, giving students independence from the page. His goals when teaching piano are to empower students with the ability to improve their playing on their own by instilling effective practicing habits. He hopes to give students the tools for self-expression and connect people through the universal language.

Itai is currently available for lessons on Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays

Teaching Philosophy: I believe that every human being has an innate musicality. I help my students develop an understanding of music and composition while also having fun learning about the art and  preparing a piece for performance. Every student has different strengths and goals when it comes to lessons and I strive to help my students achieve them.  Whether they may want to learn a classical piece, contemporary song, or develop their musicianship skills, I target my lesson planning according to their personal goals. 

Zaray is currently available for lessons on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays
