  • John Tsahalis

    I had Daniel Beliavsky for my piano professor in college. He always found a way to make his students understand, even if that meant taking numerous approaches. He would listen to what we had to say, and then give his advice afterwards. As a former teacher, myself, I can see that he genuinely wants his students to improve. That, combined with his knowledge, expertise, and multiple approaches/teaching and learning techniques make him an incredible instructor. I can only imagine how much I could have learned and improved if I took private lessons. It is a privilege to have been taught by Daniel Beliavsky.

  • Marisa Shemi

    Daniel is a dedicated, reliable and truly talented teacher. He seems to innately understand his students and tailors his lessons according to his students’ distinct personalities and challenges. He has a calm, caring temperament that puts students at ease. I highly recommend Daniel!

  • Lynn Canney

    Daniel has been teaching our 9 year old for 6 months and she absolutely loves her lessons! We are seeing the benefits of these lessons in language and mathematics development also.

    Really enjoyed DB’s teaching during a college course I took on the history of classical music.

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

The first step is to talk with new students to understand their interests and goals. I then evaluate their skill set, and we proceed according to what best fits their abilities and desired outcomes. 

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

I started performing as a child and had my professional debut at age 15. Following that, I toured the United States, Canada, and Europe, performing with orchestras and in recital. My undergraduate degree is in music, and my master's and Ph.D. are in music theory and composition. I have taught extensively for over 18 years, and have worked with thousands of students in music performance, theory, aesthetics, and history. 

I currently teach piano privately and courses in music theory, history, aesthetics, and musicianship at the college level. I chair a music department at a private NYC college. 

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