I've had three training sessions with Jonathan Howard. I tested other trainers while with him and found that he was the best. He's very organized in his lesson planning, he has a sharp eye for minor errors in form and execution, and he's challenging while simultaneously supportive. I look forward to continuing my training with him.
Griffith is spectacular. I grew up doing theatre and taking vocal lessons and never had a handle on how to release my voice or fully handle my range. He has completely transformed how I sing and helped eradicate fear and insecurity around my voice. His ability to hear exactly what is going on in your body that may inhibit your vocal expression is amazing. He can hear me strain out a note and know precisely how to communicate what I can do to relieve the tension. I remember recording our first lesson and playing it back for someone years ago. I wailed out a song atrociously and then Griff gave me a few pointers and then sounds I’d never heard came out as I sang the song again. Also, Griff is respectful, honorable, funny, kind, and generous. Just a really great guy. I get to enjoy his company and have wonderful coaching all at once.

My daughter takes piano lessons with Paul. She really enjoys the lessons and gets better at it.
Joyee is one of the most hard working and supporting people I have ever met period, nonetheless a tutor. He rapidly increased my SAT scores, and he helped me through AP Calculus when it was borderline impossible for me. He also helped me in AP statistics in which I would set the curves on tests because of him. He would also tutor me after hours if I needed it late into the night even if he had other things to do, and even though for a time I was lazy and didn't do my assignments he still believed in me, and I eventually turned it around. He is a HUGE reason I got into college and I wouldn't have been able to do it without him. Also, it doesn't hurt that he knows everything. There really isn't an area of high school academics he doesn't know. He's the epitome of an expert. He also can find plenty of practice material for you and he really does tutor you to your style If you're having second thoughts about his work ethic, intellect, or teaching ability, don't. He is by far the best tutor I've ever had and I doubt that will change. Jay, NYU class of 2021
Paul is a great guitar teacher, I’ve learned a lot I just a few lessons. It’s also really valuable that he makes sheet music for the songs I want to learn and teaches me how to play them! Thanks Paul!
I really enjoyed studying with Brian. unfortunately a health issue prevented me from continuing my lessons,I do intend to keep studying with Brian as soon as I am able, which should be soon
We chose Emo to work with my 11 year old daughter via Skype for voice lessons. She was really nervous to have her very first voice lesson over Skype, and with a stranger, but Emo quickly put her at ease. He’s patient, encouraging, positive, and also really uses the 30 minutes fully. He wasn’t the cheapest vocal coach to respond to my thumbtack but he really knows what he’s doing and maximizes the 30 minute lesson. My daughter is really happy with him as her teacher and so am I!
Very professional, thorough and patient which worked for as a beginner in this kind of fitness. My only con is that I can't do as many lessons as I'd like. Overall a great trainer.
Chris is an amazing teacher. He really doesn’t like to mess around. Learning how to play the guitar is not an easy task at all, but after just a few lessons with Chris I can guarantee that you’ll feel more confident in your ability.
I've taken weekly lessons from Kim for the last eight years. Kim is accomplished, very well educated (meaning she knows her stuff!), an amazing player herself and a great teacher. My playing has come a very long way over this time. I couldn't recommend her more highly as a teacher or a human being. I must point out it pains me to see someone who has never taken lessons from Kim (Oscar V.) give her a one star. Having taken lessons from Kim's home studio and remotely via Skype I've never for one moment felt anything but comfortable. Might I suggest guitar is about the playing, not about the room you're sitting in.
Omar is an excellent teacher, very patient and understanding. Lessons move quickly and I am learning both theory and application (piano). He also helped me decide on which piano to buy and what would be the most affordable options. I would greatly recommend taking lessons with him!
Jimmy is a great teacher and I am learning a ton from him. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in guitar lessons and he is great with beginners like me!
My kiddos really enjoy taking piano lessons from Mr. Mark. He has high expectations and is kind and helpful in his interactions. Highly recommend!
It is with full confidence that I recommend Mia Slayford as a vocal coach. Mia has been teaching students to achieve their best singing voice for many years. Futhermore, Mia is capable of directing large groups and was instrumental in co-instructing a successful secondary school choir. Not only does Mia connect on a personal level with each student to help them reach their individual goals, her own talent and enthusiasm in the music profession is an inspiration to others. I can say from personal experience that Mia was instrumental in helping me develop my musical flare and I have the fondest memories of our time singing together. There is no person I can recommend more for their passion or expertise in this field. Mia is the perfect vocal coach to help anyone sing with confidence and will always go above and beyond to ensure lessons are engaging and fun! I hope this recommendation can help you make your decision with confidence!
She is very helpful and explains the lessons so that I am learning a lot but I don't feel overwhelmed!
I take violin lessons at this school, and so far, they certainly have helped me improve on my skills, and have kept me motivated to continue practicing my instrument. It's a much more enriching experience when your lessons are one on one. I had been taking violin at school for 5 years, but taking lessons taught me that I still had a lot to learn. It's much easier to realize where your struggling and thereby improve on it quicker. I have to recommend this school to anyone seeking ways to improve their musical prowess!
Miss Marguerite is a great piano teacher. She approaches her music lessons through a variety of techniques and methods that always keeps our daughter engaged. She teaches her music theory, music appreciation, rhythm, play by ear and the ability to read music. She differentiates the needs of each of her students and taps into their styles and preferences. Our daughter has learned a lot under her tutelage.
Mark was very prompt and professional in his response to my project request. He is a very relaxed guy and made me feel very comfortable during my first lesson. We chatted about my goals, which I feel confident of achieving from Mark. During the first lesson he was making "light bulbs" go on for me for stuff i was struggling trying to learn! He made it so simple and fun. His rates are reasonable. He is worth every bit of it in my opinion. I have had three lessons since and I can not wait until the next one! (FYI...i am mid fifties male playing for three years)
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.
We had the pleasure of having Steve as my son’s guitar teacher for over five years and I cannot say enough good things about him. Not only is Steve an incredibly talented musician, he truly is an excellent teacher. He is kind and patient, offering encouragement and positive feedback along the way. Steve is also great at customizing the lesson to suit the student. My son especially liked that Steve asked him for suggestions of songs he would like to learn. As a result, his lessons were perfectly balanced with the fundamentals, along with music/songs my son was interested in. In addition, Steve does not miss an opportunity to offer up a challenge and take the student to the next level by introducing a new artist or song, all the while keeping it interesting and relevant. We were amazed at the progress my son made under Steve’s instruction. You will not be disappointed with Steve as your guitar teacher!
I am taking acoustic guitar lessons from Laura online. Laura is extremely good and effective in teaching. Also she inspires her students to practice and enjoy playing Guitar. Her teaching method is very clear and intuitive. She also provides good material for practice. She is very friendly and always willing to help. I am completely new to Guitar, but I feel very confident that I will be able to play and enjoy guitar with Laura's help. I highly recommend her for Guitar lessons.
