Meet Jacob

  • Comfortable with pets

Hello! I am a sophomore at Bard College living on the Upper West Side in NYC. The oldest of four children, I am extremely comfortable with caring for kids. I also am a piano teacher who has worked with both young beginning students and older intermediate students in private lessons. I focus on establishing basic musical concepts for beginners, teaching notation, key signature, time signature, and rhythm. I teach intermediate students patterns of learning, as well as how to develop a sense of tone and overall musicality, and work to expand their musical repertoire. With all my students I focused on instilling proper technical foundations such as posture, hand position, and fluency with scales and arpeggio exercises. I have played the piano for thirteen years, and have studied with instructors from Curtis Institute as well as Bard College.
