    In my younger years I was a professional classical guitarist. I actually have a Masters of Music Performance. I "should" have known how to play music but I didn't. I realize this now due to my work with Marion Radow. I played the notes correctly but I didn't "make" music. This is Marion's skill. She teaches you to play music. She works to ensure that you understand the components of your sheet music so that you don't just play, but you create an musical atmosphere that the composer was striving to get across. I have learned more about how to play "musically" in the last two years than I did in the 20 years of playing in my youth. It doesn't matter what level of piano skill you have, Marion can make the piece musical if you listen to her. I have found that some of my procedures needed to be unlearned. She patiently reminds me of "how" to practice and in what order to address my assignments. I am very grateful to have Marion as my teacher.

  • Anna Hammond

    An excellent, well-rounded teacher. She has a unique sense of hunor and a likeable personality. She wants the best for her students and asks just to do the work she has assigned you ( like any other teacher ). She knows the quickest, and easiest way to learn piano. She really enjoys connecting with her students and is definitely the best of the best. In the past 2-3 years that I've had her, I have soared through music that would've taken me even longer to pass with past teachers. Would totally go with The Piano Studio, all the way

  • Lani Hammond

    Marion not only plays the piano beautifully, she is also a wonderful teacher. She cares for her students and is always well prepared, knowing exactly where she is taking them and how to get them there.

  • Kristin Finn

    Knows lots about music and the arts, great teacher and has the perfect amount of patience.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I'm extremely apt at "reading" a student's personality and eagerness to learn, even if they are very shy. So at our Interview meeting, I am able to size them up! Since everyone learns differently, my approach to each and every student is specific to them.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Graduate Music Major, Hunter College, NYC.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Lessons are a Flat Rate monthly, which takes into consideration holidays that are listed in The Piano Studio Policies and Procedures. $100 per month for a 30 minute weekly lesson; $150 per month for a 45 minute lesson and $200 per month for an hour weekly lesson. 


How did you get started teaching?

I started my piano lessons at the age of 12. At 15 yrs old my teacher had me helping students LEARN TO LEARN! At 18yrs old I started teaching.


What types of students have you worked with?

All types, ... including students with learning disabilities.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Several of my students participated in evaluations from The National Guild of Piano Teachers...and did fabulously well!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Ask HOW they give assisgnments. They must be specific so you know what to do when you leave a lesson.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What types of music they think they might like to learn. But they won't really know until they get started and have learned all the basics well...reading notes, counting and the importance of fingering.
