What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We do our best to match students with the best teacher for their needs. Each semester begins with a three lesson trial period in which a student may withdraw for any reason for a full refund minus the lessons to date.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
All of our faculty members are fixtures in the NYC music scene, performing frequently at clubs from the Blue Note to the Bitter End. You can hear our voices, instruments, or compositions on countless recordings, film scores and shows. Fox 5’s Star of the Day or Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle.
We are graduates of NYU, New England Conservatory, Peabody, Manhattan School of Music, to name a few. We’ve studied music in the academy and honed our craft on band stands from L.A. to Shanghai, and learned to speak the language right here in New York alongside legends like Roy Hargrove, Jeremy Pelt, Ron McClure, Jean-Michel Pilc, Stefon Harris, Scott Colley, Christian McBride and others.
