Piano teacher New York City updated

Piano teacher New York City Hendry Wijaya updated
Hendry Wijaya, a young pianist from Indonesia, first attracted attention in 1996 when he won the Artists International's "Young Artist Piano Award" and made his critically acclaimed New York Recital debut at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall. "Hendry Wijaya may well be one of the greatest pianists to come out of Indonesia today", says the Indonesian Observer.

Hendry began his musical training at the age of two with his mother. He gave his first public performance at the age of four that was broadcast on RRI, Radio Republic of Indonesia. At the age of six, Hendry joined the Junior Original Concert (JOC); a group of composers for gifted children under the age of fifteen, through competitive auditions from Yamaha Music Foundation.

At the age of twelve Hendry obtained the highest grade eight piano diploma from the Royal Schools of Music-London. A few years later, he was awarded an Advanced Certificate and the Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music (L.R.S.M.) Diploma in piano performance with highest distinction from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, which consists of the Royal Academy of Music, Royal College of Music, Royal Northern College of Music and Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. He was chosen to play in master classes given by world-renowned artists such as, Lillian Freundlich, Peter Frankl, Charles Rosen, Michael Ponti, Paul Badura-Skoda and Robert Weirich, among others.

In 1991, a scholarship from the Boston Conservatory of Music brought Hendry to the United States. A year later he was invited to study with renowned pianist, Constance Keene, at Manhattan School of Music as the recipient of Dora Zaslavsky Koch piano scholarship. He was awarded a Bachelor of Music degree at the age of nineteen, followed by a Master of Music two years later. Since then he has been performing actively throughout the United States and in his native country both as soloist and chamber musician. His performances have been broadcast widely on television and radio.

Hendry was the recipient of the LeBauer Scholarship and the Baldwin Piano Award at the Eastern Music Festival. The following year he returned as a soloist with the EMF Orchestra. Also, Hendry was invited to join the Aspen Music Festival, where he was a scholarship student of Herbert Stessin, Chairman of the Piano Faculty at Juilliard. His special interest in chamber music led to his studying with such outstanding teachers as Jeanne Baxtresser, Sylvia Rosenberg, Frank Morelli, and Linda Chesis.

In May 2002, Hendry Wijaya became the youngest recipient from Indonesia to receive the Doctor of Musical Arts degree, when he graduated from the prestigious Manhattan School of Music. He is a former piano faculty member at the Stecher and Horowitz School of the Arts. In addition to his position as the Music and Choir Director of the Wantagh Memorial Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, he also serves on the piano faculty at the Music Consortium of Long Island.

Dr. Wijaya welcomes serious inquiries from students of all ages and levels.

Piano teacher Santa Monica, California updated

Piano teacher Santa Monica, California Anders Martinson updated

Anders Martinson first began studying piano at the age of six. He made his national television debut in 1988 at the age of fifteen as a pianist performing on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show. By eighteen, he was concertizing throughout the United States and abroad. He made his Los Angeles Philharmonic debut under Esa-Pekka Salonen in 1991, and his New York recital debut at Carnegie’s Weill Hall the following year where he received a rave New York Times review. European debuts in Rome and London soon followed.

Anders has won numerous competitions and garnered multiple awards. In 1991, he placed 2nd in the prestigious Robert Casadesus International Piano Competition, and 1st in both the solo and concerto categories of the Joanna Hodges International Piano Competition, in each case as the youngest competitor. In 1992, again as the youngest competitor, he won 1st place in the international D’Angelo Young Artist Competition. Anders received the United States Presidential Scholar Award in 1991, and the Gilmore Foundation Young Artist Award in 1992, which recognized him as an outstanding young American pianist.

In early 1992, Anders’ concert career was cut short by focal dystonia in his right hand and he was forced to cancel all solo engagements. Subsequently, Anders attended Yale University, where he turned his attention to conducting. Anders took over as Music Director of the Berkeley Orchestra at Yale in 1994. During his final two years there, he guided the orchestra to a new level, drawing full crowds to the performances, and building the 45-piece chamber orchestra into a 75-piece orchestra capable of performing standard orchestral literature. He completed his Bachelor of Arts in Music in 1996 and accepted one of the top awards bestowed on graduates at Commencement, the David Everett Chantler Award. He also received the New Prize for his work as the director of the Berkeley Orchestra.

Having taught on an occasional basis for the last several years, Anders recently decided to focus entirely on teaching and to build his own piano studio. Presently he teaches privately out of his home in Santa Monica to students of all ages and levels.

“Martinson…manages hair-raising technical difficulties with easy assurance; he has a good ear for proportion, tempo and linear movement, and he demonstrates a precocious confidence in his own interpretive ideas.” New York Times, May 1992

“Martinson gave casual and easy utterance to even the most involved passage work. The big, sweeping tunes reached their peaks naturally…and along the way he found room for sensitive, pointed shading….crisply emphasizing melody in scampering virtuoso formulations. In short, a pianist with fingers and a personality.” Los Angeles Times, February 1992

“Sparkling, penetrating, passionate, poised, his pleasure in playing was palpable, and his poetry endless.” Le Monde (Paris), August 1991

“Amusing and capricious…passionate, pungent, always supremely musical.” Corriere Della Sera (Rome), June 1992

“Brilliantly sensitive….aristocratic, refined, elegantly lyrical. Expressive and nuanced in all the touchingly personal passages, empirical, tidy, never too emphatic….capable of tremendous pianistic feats of strength.” Santa Barbara News-Press, November 1990

“Crystal-clear articulation, a sense of structure and absolute technical accuracy.” Cleveland Plain Dealer, August 1991

“I could hardly believe his performance….perfect grace, ease and pianistic style.” Desert Weekly, March 1989

“A cool breeze of artistic relief….a blazing display of skill….coupled with passion and insight.” Ventura County Star, August 1987

“Martinson…created such powerfully intense moments from even the most fragmentary of phrases, one could hear the tortured, angst-riddled thoughts and feelings of ….Rachmaninov.”

“A virtuosic tour de force that did not ignore the …pensive, lushly lyrical portions…which he infused with a longing melancholy and even a delicate wistfulness.” Irvine World News, February 1992

“Martinson’s …light, fine touch and impressive technique…were enhanced by his strong lyrical style.” Williamsburg Gazette, April 1992

“Masterful…cannot be improved upon.” Santa Monica Outlook, March 1991


As a trained classical pianist, I focus on teaching reading skills, technique, and interpretive skills, all of which serve as tools in performing the music of the renowned composers. I teach students of all levels and ages. Each student comes to me with unique needs. I tailor my teaching to fit these needs. I want each student to develop the tools necessary to express themselves through music. I am committed to instilling in each student a desire to progress and improve. A different approach for each student is vital in guiding them to fulfill their musical aspirations.

Ultimately, the main objective is to teach the art of piano through motivation and encouragement while having fun. I hope that my students would reciprocate and give the best of their ability.

I specialized in piano instruction. Students progress according to their level. Beginners will concentrate mainly on basic techniques and sight-reading. When they reach the next level, intermediate students will be instructed on interpretation, tonality, as well as more sophisticated techniques and sight-reading. At the advanced level, students will be encouraged to attend classical concerts to broaden their understanding in playing styles. This experience would lead them to learn higher level interpretation, rhythm control, more intricate techniques. A more comprehensive feedback system such as Certificate of Merit and student recital will also be provided to guide the student to a higher level.

I believe that through the process of learning a musical instrument and performing, students develop self-confidence and motivation that will be truly beneficial in life even if the student decides not to pursue a career in music. Studies have shown that students who have musical aptitude score higher in standardized tests. Musical appreciation is a lifetime journey that evolves through time and it is my utmost goal to share this passion with my students.

The philosophy of the studio is to provide high quality, innovative music instruction through a carefully planned curriculum that balances music discipline & fun, using state-of-the-art technology.

The Studio

When you walk into the studio, there is a certain inspiration that fills the air. Whether you are an aspiring keyboardist in a rock band, a lover of Chopin, or a Miles Davis fanatic, you will feel surrounded by the love of music.

Innovation. Creativity. Technology. These are the ideas that shaped the building of my studio & provide a foundation and groundwork for my teaching philosophies.

The Piano: My baby grand piano is always kept in tip-top condition and is regulated once a year to keep the action precise.

Music Library: From an assortment of theory & technique books to Rock Piano Methods to Jazz piano solos, I have accumulated hundreds of music textbooks, scores, references, etc over the years. I also have access to thousands of music files in .PDF format & backing tracks for rock, blues, & jazz piano.

Lesson Recordings: After every lesson, you will receive an audio recording via email. I personally send these MP3 files to my students to review throughout their practice week. There is also the option of videotaping the lesson, if the student provides a flashdrive with enough memory for 30 minutes - 1 hour of video. At the end of the lesson, I will give you back your flashdrive. Make sure to dump the file onto a hard drive so you won't run out of room.

Professional Recording: Over the years, I have gained experience as an engineer, recording many solo & band tracks. In my studio, I have ProTools 8, high-quality studio mic, and an ambient room to make recording a wonderful experience for the student & teacher. All performance pieces or any piece finished will be recorded and each student will build a repertoire of recorded pieces, just like the professionals!

20,000+ MP3 Songs!: Yes, I have a ton of songs. Whether you need a new piece to work up or a new band to listen to, my library is yours. Part of understanding how to play music is gained by listening to music. The reason you gained an interest in music is most likely because of the way a song or piece affected you emotionally.

Waiting Area: If you are a parent or student arriving early (or staying afterwards), there is a waiting room available with WiFi Internet access, reading material, and a practice keyboard to get your hands warmed up. There is also a computer workstation, listed below.

Computer Workstation: In the waiting room, there is a computer setup with a MIDI keyboard to practice ear training, learning notes/rhythms, using Finale, and other things. Training is provided by the instructor during lesson time.
