Based on their love of music and passion for using music to help others, David and Helene Herman established the Piano Plus Music Studio in 2001.
After years of composing and performing his original songs, David found an assignment at a hospital to be life-changing. He discovered the power of using music as a therapeutic tool. He enrolled at New York University and earned a Masters Degree in Music Therapy. Now he provides guitar instruction as well as music therapy at the Piano Plus studio.
Helene has extensive experience in special education and piano teaching. Inspired by her piano students with learning challenges, Helene enrolled in New York University and earned a second Masters Degree in Music Therapy. In addition to providing music therapy, she enjoys teaching piano to all ages and abilities.
