My name is Regan Nikol-Stas, I am music teacher and performer in New York City. I have been teaching piano lessons to beginning and intermediate students from ages 5 through adult for over 12 years. Lessons take place in my music studio located in Tuckahoe, NY. Piano lessons consist of warm up exercises, scales, chords and chosen method book or select pieces appropriate for your level. There are many great method books in the piano literature to choose from; I recommend Alfred's Piano Library for beginners. Some areas that I like to focus on in the lesson are correct playing posture, hand and wrist position, musicality, theory, ear training, and reading music. Students should feel comfortable in their lessons and feel free to express themselves. I am flexible to any concerns that you may have and committed to making the lessons an enjoyable experience. Contact me for a 15 minute orientation.
