Taking Private Piano Lessons with PLAY ‘N’ MUSIC @ the Astoria Dance Centre is a great idea! Teaching Artist and Instructor Mr. Fintan O’Neill says “ You have got to have fun while learning, that’s the key to being successful”.

O’Neill, a classically trained teacher ( L.T.C.L. ) uses an innovative approach which stimulates a student’s innate musical interest through improvisation, pop music and jazz while learning to read and play the classics. It is an approach that works well as is shown by the student’s impressive performances at the twice yearly recitals. Books and recitals are included in the lesson tuition fees.

“Building self confidence through setting goals and achieving them as well as performing before a live audience are skills a student will use throughout their lives. Really a music education is about a great deal more than music alone” says O’Neill who has over twenty years of experience as a performer/teacher/recording artist and composer. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, several different countries and is a BMI registered composer.
