How Do I Get Started?
That’s easy. Follow the three simple steps below so you can
stop thinking about the piano and actually start playing it.
1. Take Your Assessment
This 30 second Readiness Assessment will help deternine if you’re actually ready to start playing the piano. I’ll ask a few quick questions like are you a beginner, intermediate or advanced player? What are some of your concerns? What are your goals? Once I get your request, an email will be sent to you with your results. If you’re ready, you’ll move to step 2. This assessment is valuable to anyone who is interested in playing the piano.
2. Request Your Intro
The second part of the assessment will determine if you feel that this is the studio for you by coming in for an intro lesson. This intro lesson will allow you to get a feel for how piano lessons will be going forward. Half the lesson will be spent giving instruction on how to sit, how to position your hands so you’re not in pain, and so much more. The other half will be spent talking about your goals and what you expect going forward. This is the time to see if you vibe with Sara. Once the lesson is done, you can decide if this is the studio for you.
3. Play Music You Love
If you decide to take lessons here, that is when the magic really happens! Once you are a student here, you will be on the road to playing the piano with ease. My Lab Lessons are the perfect piano lessons for beginners and intermediates and my Elite Lessons are reserved for more advanced players. I want you to become the kind of pianist that YOU want to be. Want to be the casual player at parties? I got you. Want to fly through challenging classical pieces? I can help you do that, too.
Ok, This All Sounds Great, but Do You

Sure do! Below you can read reviews from Paul, Deb, and Nicole.
What Makes You Different from the
Other Piano Lesson Schools?
For starters, I want you to play the music you actually like.
In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of people looking for piano lessons in East Meadow, but the amount of quality piano teachers has gone down. If you live in East Meadow and want to learn to play the piano, you probably don’t want to wait a bunch of years for a qualified teacher to begin teaching in your area.
So what many East Meadowers (is that a word?) do is make the mistake of choosing a teacher who may be underqualified, causing them to develop bad habits, not achieve their goals, and have a bad piano lesson experience eventually causing them to quit. However, because they were the nearest, they chose the instructor. If all the best things we wanted were in the town we lived in then this wouldn’t be Long Island (I still travel 22 mins for the best BBQ on Long Island)!
This is where I slide in and introduce myself. I’m Sara Chatalbash, owner and teacher at Chatalbash Lessons.
If you searched for piano lessons in East Meadow, and want to learn to play the piano quick and easy and don’t mind a short car ride, I can help.
I’m going to be transparent and upfront with you. My goal is not to turn you into the kind of pianist I want you to be. My goal is to help YOU grow into the pianist YOU want to be. Lessons here are fully geared, personalized, and based on you and your goals, whether you want to play for fun, play in a band, or study for music school. Yes, I use various music books in my piano lessons, but only to teach you concepts and provide you with the physical skills necessary to play piano and make music. This way, you’ll know exactly what to do when you sit down at the piano.
With that said, if you searched piano lessons in East Meadow but are ok with driving a few mins to our studio, then you have to grab your Readiness Assessment now; this will put you miles ahead of everyone else learning piano today!

There’s a Bunch of Teachers Out There. How Do
I Find the Right Piano Teacher for Me?
Whether you go with me or another music teacher, I highly recommend your teacher have these qualities so that you have the best chance of enjoying lessons.
A Teacher Who Teaches All Levels
If your music teacher only teaches beginners, you will outgrow them after a couple of years max and have to go find someone new.
A Teacher Who Can Play Advanced Music
If they can play advanced music (and I don’t just mean classical music) you know that they will be able to give you comprehensive music lessons.
A Teacher Who Has a Degree in Piano
You know that your instructor had proper training in performance, theory and pedagogy (teaching) for your music lessons.
They Must Explain Things Simply
Your music teacher must be able to explain things in a way that makes sense to you and not talk as if you went to some music academy or already know music theory.
NOT The Cheapest Teacher
A music teacher who is the cheapest most likely will be the most inexperienced, which is why they’re undercutting the industry.
Must Let You Choose Your Music
Whether it’s classical or rock, you should play the music that made you want to play piano in the first place.
I’m Looking for Piano Lessons in East Meadow
Why Should I Take Lessons at This Studio?
Here are a few quick reasons you may enjoy taking lessons here.
Fun & Supportive Environment
I believe in keeping music lessons fun and upbeat; nobody wants a tyrant for a teacher or to feel like they’re in school. I’m not one of those teachers who teaches every student the same way. Every student has a different personality and learns differently so it’s important for a teacher to customize music lessons to their students.
Relaxed, Casual Recitals
I’m also not one of those teachers who likes to torture their students with formal recitals. I like to give music performance opportunities in more relaxed settings, where friends and family can enjoy a cup of coffee while hearing your performance. I even have a backyard potluck over the summer where students play whatever they want! Classical music, jazz music, Latin music, Christian music, pop music, rock music, blues music, country music, R&B music, rap music….you name it, you can play it!
Continued Student Success
The students in this music studio consistently score high in NYSSMA and theory exams, win classical performance competitions, and many more are accepted into the top music schools. My students are amazing!
I’ve experimented with many forms of music. I’ve jammed and recorded with indie music bands and improvised at Fat Cat in NYC playing jazz music. I love incorporating non-classical music elements into lessons and giving the theory behind them so, as I said before, whether you’re into jazz music, Latin music, Christian music, pop music, rock music, blues music, country music, R&B music, rap music, or you really love classical music, I teach it all so there’s no limit on what styles you can learn.
