NYC Piano Studio

Teaching Philosophy:

As a professional concert pianist and teacher, I feel it is my responsibility to pass on all the insight and wisdom I have learn from my great teachers. Whether a student is training to be a concert pianist, or just trying out the instrument; I will give them the same amount of effort and expertise. I have taught piano to students of all ages and all levels of proficiency. Some of my student have had great success leading then to merit based scholarship to Interlochen Music School (High school) and others to the Evening Division at Juilliard. I have taught in various setting, such as music schools, summer festivals, master classes, and my own studio.

As a dedicated educator, Daniel operates his own private studio and was awarded “Top Piano Teacher” by Steinway & Sons in 2022.

The studio is equipped with a well maintained pre-war 1905 Steinway B (Refurbished in 2003.)
