Mt. Pleasant Piano is a studio for study of piano, music theory and composition for children and adults.
Founder, Jonathan Ackerman, began teaching in 1992 after graduating from Sarah Lawrence College. He then pursued his Masters of Music in Piano Performance at Rutgers University, which he received in 1996.
Jonathan toured as a pianist and composer with Eurythmy Spring Valley on 3 continents and 20 states in the U.S. He also is a staff accompanist at Hoff Barthelson Music School in Scarsdale, NY and collaborates regularly with instrumentalists and singers in recitals in the New York area.
As President of the New York State Music Teacher’s Association, District 4, Jonathan helps plan and run many large events for area music students including recitals, auditions, competitions and a musicianship festival.
My approach is to develop the complete musician. Piano technique, repertoire, music theory and improvisation/composition are all a part of my teaching.
Please contact me to discuss piano lessons and NYSMTA as well.
