Thanks to Skype, I get to teach people all over the world without leaving my studio in NYC!  All you need is an internet connection, a computer with a camera and we're set to go.  Facetime also works great, if you have an iPhone or iPad.  Email me at to book a session now!

"As a singer I have long wanted to accompany myself on piano in a jazz trio format. I had tried in the past to teach myself, buying many a method book, subscribing to internet sites and listening to recordings, but I usually found myself in information overload, unable to see the forest for the trees. I asked Brenda to help me get my piano playing "gig-ready", starting first with comping, then moving on to some basic improvisation. I did my first gig on piano only after a few months of learning with Brenda because she was able to give me the exact tools I needed to get me up and running. Because I'm in Australia, our lessons were done via Skype which worked really well. Without her knowledge, guidance and encouragement, I may never have realised my dream of playing jazz piano for an audience! I am very grateful to work with such a wonderful musician and teacher."
