🤔 Why Choose Chatalbash Lessons When You Can Go to a Cheaper 🎵 Music School That's Much Closer to Your House?

1

It's NOT a lesson...it's an EXPERIENCE!

Music lessons generally take place in a small room and the teachers usually teach you what they want to teach...not what you want to learn. We FLIP that. We will teach you to play the songs that inspired you to learn to play in the first place!

2

Customized Programs have been created for you to learn IMMEDIATELY

We've created simplified methods to get you playing in no time. Our lessons build independence from the start, so students tend to level up in their books at a faster rate than the publisher advertises and are more confident at home. 

3

And Speaking of Community

Most music lessons are solo events that lead to you feeling like you're the only one taking lessons. This can be very discouraging. Our lessons allow you to interact with other students on a weekly basis, who have been exactly where you are at one point.

About Power Lessons

Designed for beginner and intermediate players, this year-long program includes individualized teaching and practice in a lab setting with up to four students, with headphones at each station. Students in each class do not have to be at the same level since the class is not taught as a group. You'll receive individual attention and go at your own pace. All music is thoroughly learned at the lesson, which makes practice at home easier! Optional prep for NYSSMA levels 1-4 available.

Due to heavy emphasis on sight-reading and independence,  students tend to level up in their books at a faster rate than the publisher advertises and are more confident at home. 

About Elite Lessons

You'll receive individual 1-1 lessons. In these hour lessons, we focus on advanced music, college-level music theory, memory training, performance skills, and advanced technique. 

 

Students in Elite Lessons must consistently practice 6-7 hours each week to remain in the program. These lessons are geared towards students who are training for upper NYSSMA levels, are looking to train for music school auditions or competitions, or simply just play at an advanced level.

Meet Your Teacher: Sara Chatalbash

Sara Chatalbash, Owner/ Piano Teacher

As you can see from my adorable photograph below, I’ve been drawn to the piano since I could reach it.

My Grams, who was also a pianist, would sit me on the bench beside her and I’d listen to her play for hours (I miss her playing). 

 

She gifted me her beloved piano (the same one in the picture), and that's one of the reasons I decided to take piano lessons.

 

I wanted to be as good as Grams and make her proud. I’m sure many of you can relate.

 

I’m not going to bore you with details like... 
 

  • how many years I’ve been teaching

  • where I went to school

  • or what my favorite cereal is

But if that’s what you’re looking for, let me know and I’ll send you a link with my full list of credentials right away.

 

If you’re even the slightest bit curious about lessons, I'd invite you to get your intro lesson now. If you’re lucky, I’ll even tell you some random trivia during lessons that you’ll find borderline fascinating...

 

Let’s get you playing and make yourself, Mom and Grandma proud!

Welcome to the bottom of the page. This page has been a labor of love. Hopefully, you can see who we are what we're all about and why you'll love taking lessons here.
