My daughter takes piano lessons with Paul. She really enjoys the lessons and gets better at it.
I requested singing lessons and received 6 quotes rangers big from $36/hr to $100/hr. I eliminated 3 of them just based on the message they wrote to me and their reviews or lack there of. My passion is indie rock and Jan does not fit the profile of a rocker and she was vocally trained as an opera singer. However, her reviews were positive, she was priced in the middle, her message to me was pertinent and once I called and spoke to her I was sold. I didn't bother contacting the other two quotes I was interested in. Needless to say, my hunch was right and I had my first lesson last week. It went incredibly well. She amazed me. I am a song writer wanting to improve my vocals so I can work indecent from hiring a singer. I showed he some of my recorded originals and within seconds she knew what I had to improve to make my voice fit the song better. We changed the key a whole step, she had me pronounce some of the words differently and she gave input in to what could improve for the song instrumentally. She started showing me current artists and what I could take from their particular songs to inspire some rhythmic changes. she had suggestions on where to go and present my music to sale for commercial/tv/advertising. She had big picture advice on where to focus my energies. I couldn't believe what we packed in to a one hour rehearsal. She sat at her piano and taught me vocal exercises and explained to me how I could improve on them with what I call tricks to break certain bad habits I have formed. I can't wait to see her next week. She can totally rock!!!
Stephanie is a very patient and pleasant teacher. My son now looks forward to his piano lessons and is actually enjoying them. She is a great choice if you are looking for someone who makes teaching fun.
My daughter piano lessons. It just 2 classes and really so good and she is able to read notes. Just waiting for next more lessons. The instructor John is very knowledgeable and nice in teaching her.
I am 57 years old (no Spring chicken) and came to Thomas for tenor sax lessons. My purpose is to perform and record sax solos for classic rock and blues. Thomas does a great job with understanding my goals and giving me a road map to achieve them. Very patient and intuitive.
My wife started our 15 year old daughter on violin lessons over Christmas break- since then she has gained confidence in her playing and the sound is much improved as well.She loves the duets that her teacher brings to play together, and it has taught her how to listen more and helped in school orchestra as well. Thank you Jamie!
I was, no, am so impressed with every aspect of Mr. Snydman's lessons. Need I say more? Yes! In addition to his musical knowledge, he is a genuinely kind caring person.
Linda has a lot of experiences in tutoring. Every time I have questions in grammar or pronunciation during lessons, she clarify for me. I am very satisfied with that and I think it's the fastest way to learn. I would recommend her to my friends who want to improve their English.
Radina is such a great teacher, always friendly, professional, patient, she knows what she is doing. I've been taking lessons with her now for about one year and I always look forward to my vocal lesson. We work on songs which I can pick but she also recommends great songs to practice.
I wanted a teacher that could work with an older adult who not had piano lessons since childhood. After many years, I wanted to challenge myself by getting back into piano and I wanted to bring music back into my life. I was a bit nervous about making the commitment and about the time investment that would be required. I also didnt know a good teacher so I asked around. Howards name came up. He was recommended as a patient and knowledgeable teacher that would do wonders with students. Howards approach is not the conventional one that I experienced as a child. He presents many types of approaches and uses lots of tools and techniques to build your skills and understanding of the structure of music. Now, Im stretching myself to learn, remember and apply these skills and it feels really good! I actually enjoy practicing my piano. Now thats a testimony to Howards influence! If you are looking for a teacher that can accommodate your needs, encourage and inspire you, meet Howard and try him out. Im confident that you will be very pleased with him as a professional and as a teacher.
I am what you would call a beginner+ when it comes to piano. I had taken lessons in middle school and stopped because I couldn't sit still. I bought a small electronic keyboard after college and would hit the keys here and there when I wanted to learn some pop song or something that caught my ear on the radio. I knew I lacked a good foundation and never really get to the next level without solid instruction. What I found in Kevin King outdid all of my expectations. From the start you can tell that he is passionate about what he does and when he plays the piano it's difficult not to become totally entranced. I was one of his few students that was not trying to play professionally so he had to significantly tone down his piano vocabulary but once he figured out my level he was able to keep me right in the pocket of always feeling challenged while not ever making me feel discouraged. He has a process that he has honed over the years and if you want to learn how to play the piano the right way he is the one to go to. You will learn the fundamentals of the instrument and how to create the building blocks of scales, chord progressions, tempo, and dabble in all the different musical styles. If you are looking just to learn specific songs he incorporates that as well - will provide you sheet music, instruct you how to play the piece dynamically and add a wonderful array of extra bells and whistles that you can incorporate into the song and wow those around you. Sign up and learn from Kevin...you will not be disappointed.
Maddy Reese is an excellent piano teacher! She is thorough, professional and encouraging, not only with regard to lessons, but recitals and NYSSMA prep. as well. My daughter benefited tremendously under Maddy's instruction.
Joel is a wonderful and engaging teacher. My 7 year old son enjoys and looks forward to his weekly piano lessons.
Mr Anthony does a wonderful job giving my 9 year old lessons. He is always on time and very respectful. After just two lessons I am already impressed with what my son has learned. I'm excited to see what Mr Anthony teaches my son in the coming months.
Joey is a fantastic and understanding teacher. He had me singing in a way I didn't realize was possible. I also am taking piano lessons from him, and Joey understands my goals and style. A+
Ms. Shahbazi is very patient, understanding, and skilled at teaching piano. I would recommend her for student support of all ages! She gave me a lesson while she studied at Chapman University and gave a lot of good tips about fundamentals and the piece we worked on.
Davey is a great teacher! He really got to know our daughter and tailors her lessons to best suit her. He teaches her how to read music while also giving her a chance to have fun with her guitar. Her lesson is the perfect balance of reading music and practicing from her book along with fun jam sessions with Davey.
Pierson is a talented musician with a natural ear for nuance that takes his music from good to great. As an instructor, Pierson translates his expertise and love for music onto the piano keys through his lessons and has fine-tuned my daughter's playing beyond just songs.

Just what I was looking for in a jazz piano teacher! He listened to my goals and is crafting a teaching strategy to make me a better musician while enjoying the process. Looking forward to more piano lessons in the future. He also teaches saxophone.
Ryan Rowles is an experienced and engaging music teacher. Very warm, personable, and talented. I would highly recommend him for students of all ages!
