Formula for Success: A Piano Teacher with Teaching Skills + A Strong Music Reading Program

My mission is to inspire in piano students a lifetime involvement with recreational piano playing. Piano teaching for me is not secondary to the pursuit of a performance career.  I am entirely committed to teaching piano, not solely as a pianist, but as an educator, well-versed in the principles of teaching and the psychology of learning.


I am also committed to developing strong reading skills in my piano students. Without the ability to read well, a student struggles when learning new pieces and is often limited to a handful of rote-learned pieces played from memory. At college I conducted a public survey to determine why some piano students give up while others stick with it.  I discovered that failure to acquire good reading skills is the primary reason students get frustrated and quit after a year or two of lessons.


Piano Lessons You Look Forward To

The Tenafly Piano Studio offers a host of creative, stimulating teaching strategies and materials so students look forward to their lessons:


• A unique, customized program for you to achieve the    playing level you aspire to


• Lessons conducted at a learning speed comfortable for you and a teaching approach suited to your learning style


• Colorful motivational & goal-setting posters and fun-filled musical game board activities to reinforce reading skills


• Tips on how to learn a new piece and how to work piano practice into your daily routine


Whatever your age or ability, you  can realize your dream of playing the piano.

"Carole’s home studio is very professional and more affordable than area music schools.
 My daughter has developed excellent reading & playing skills but without any pressure or stress.  She enjoys playing at the group piano workshops, which are more fun and educational and less intimidating than traditional formal recitals."
