Teaching Experience

Nina has been an active vocal and piano teacher for the past 10 years in NYC.  


She is proud to say that several students have performed solo in Carnegie Hall (Weill, Zankel, and Isaac Stern) as well as Symphony Space.  She also has helped several students audition and become accepted into the Interlochen Arts Camp in Michigan, and into the Laguardia High School for the Performing Arts, where one of her students has gotten a lead role in their main musical.  Students have gone on to pursue singing through out their college years as vocal majors or minors, and have also become young professional singers. The most recent news: one of her students will go on as a vocal major to the Manhattan School of Music, Nina's own alma mater. 


Nina is a current faculty member at the Dwight School Conservatory throughout the week, and on Saturdays can be found teaching at the Mind-Builders Performing Arts Center in the Bronx, a non-profit organization for the Bronx Community. Nina also taught for many years at Music in Chappaqua where she originally discovered her love and passion for teaching.  

Nina teaches privately all around the city and has had private recitals held at Steinway Hall.  If interested in lessons and fee inquiries, please email through the contact page.
