It was a big pleasure working with Consonance Music team. Not only were they amazing at the organizational stage of the event, but they did a great job on our big day. People like them definitely make your event planning less stressful. Very responsive, personable, professional, accommodating, reasonably priced, flexible with music choices.. And when I say "flexible", I really mean it. They can play everything from classic Mendelssohn to Gotie - to Sia - to Star Wars or Game of Thrones themes, and all in between: you choose..! They also get very creative with the instrument combos. I've heard their guitar/violin, and it sounded just unreal! We originally discovered Consonance Ensemble and had them playing at our wedding several years ago. Since then, I've been to at least couple of more events where they performed, and everybody - from the hosts to the guests - was really happy about the great job the Ensemble's done. I always recommend them to all of my friends and family. One of my friends, who had Consonance Music playing at their wedding, told me, that they also played at his proposal. He was so impressed how flawlessly everything went, so hired them for the wedding as well. The other thing I'd like to mention, to get an artist combination you want - book them as much in advance as possible. This will alleviate a lot of stress from you for all these months before your event. One less headache! However, if, for some reason, your event is right around the corner, I highly recommend still giving them a shot. As the other reviewers mentioned, the Consonance team was able to find the availability in as close as couple of weeks from the event. To me, this says a lot about how well-organized they are. Thanks for your wonderful work, and hope to see and listen to you soon again!

We switched to Laura in May for piano lessons after 3 years with another teacher. We are very happy with her teaching approach. She makes it fun for my 2 daughters (10 & 8) and yet they are learning a lot. I noticed that my girls practice more during the week and looks forward to their weekly lesson with Laura. She comes to our house too which is very convenient.

I had the extreme privilege of being taught by Matt for two years, both in private lessons and in an orchestral setting. He is a patient, dedicated, and incredibly talented teacher that perfectly balances the many realms of friend, mentor, instructor, and motivator. I can say with confidence that my musical skills improved exponentially under Matt's firm, but friendly, tutelage, and that he is an absolute joy to work with.

I took private violin lessons with Kevin for a few summers in order to prepare for auditions for my community orchestra. Kevin was extremely helpful and nice, and between lessons he was always available in case I needed to reschedule.

My daughter has been taking violin lessons with David since she was 9 years old; and more recently, she has started classical, acoustic guitar lessons the summer before entering college. He is a dedicated professional and diligent in making sure his students learn correct technique and become more musical in their own personal way. More importantly, David has the ability to keep his lessons fun and varied! Her lessons have always been highlights of my daughter's week! I recommend David without hesitation.

Since she has a very especial and practical way of teaching violin. I would recommend this teacher to any one who really wants to learn how to play violin. Thank you very much dear teacher.

I'm so glad I decided to work with Helene! I have wanted to learn to play violin since I was in the third grade and was denied the opportunity to do so as a child, so as an adult I decided to take matters in my own hands and take lessons. Helene is patient, knowledgeable, and encouraging and after three years at her urging I've joined a local orchestra in addition to continuing lessons with her! I've worked with her both in person and over Skype, and am glad she offers the video lesson option as I was away at school for two years and was still able to keep up with my lessons thanks to connecting online every week. The video lessons were just as high quality as the in-person lessons and I was able to advance to learning 5th position while I was away. If you're interested in learning violin. I highly recommend Helene.

What I love the most about Johannes is the fact that he treats his beginner-intermediate students just like his music major students or those who are preparing to audition for conservatories or precolleges. I've studied with him for about 3 years so far. I had learned the violin for a couple of years before him but had no basic technique secured and struggled a lot with tone production and overall playing quality. He put equal amount of focus on basic posture and technique with me as he does with his more serious music major students. He's obviously slower-paced with repertoire than other violin teachers who make students play a lot of pieces very poorly in a short amount of time. But each piece and etude I work on with him sounds like what I have never imagined myself would be able to sound like before. Now I know where the bow should be placed with what arm positions and muscle movements for the best quality tone production, and how the left hand should be framed and driven for secure intonation and flexibility, all thanks to Johannes. As long as you practice just the way he asks you to (which often requires you to be incredibly slow and patient), he'd never ever give up on you and never let you play poorly for years with no noticeable improvement! At first I felt as though I wasn't learning much, because he didn't give me a lot of fun pieces I really wanted to play. But 6 months to a year later, I sounded completely different and was able to play some pieces with much better tone and volume. As long as he's in New York, I'll keep studying with him.

My name is Sue Tai. I was Mr. Lio’s violin student in Macao two years ago. Mr. Lio taught me and my son Kenny Kam to play the violin from August 2013 to August 2015. My son Kenny and I took the violin lesson and an aural lesson once a week. Kenny took the ABRSM violin exam grade 3 under the supervision of Mr. Lio in December 2014. He passed the exam and got the certificate successfully. Mr. Lio is a serious, responsible and patient teacher. He taught us important basic skills of playing the violin at the early stage of learning violin carefully. He paid special attention to our gestures of holding the bow and clicking the fingers on the strings accurately. Besides teaching the basic skills of playing the violin, he also arranged exercises for us to practice our fingers and bowing regularly. In addition, he required Kenny to write a diary to record his practice as homework so as to improve his violin skills. Kenny and I took the violin lesson at the same time. When Kenny was playing the violin, I sat at the back, listened and watched carefully. Similarly, Kenny listened carefully when Mr. Lio was teaching me to play the violin. We took turns to practice the violin and we learned from each other’s mistakes. Mr. Lio plays the violin very well. He sets a good model for us to follow. We still keep in touch after Mr. Lio went to the U.S. for further studies. I am really thankful to Mr. Lio for his patience and seriousness in guiding me and my son towards the world of violin music.

      I've been taking violin and voice from Sarah for over a year now, and I have seen vast improvements! I love visiting her studio on the UWS, it's a beautiful space to learn. Sarah's ongoing experience as a professional opera singer and musician always informs our lessons. It's very inspiring! I highly recommend studying with Sarah!

        Anna is a wonderful, positive teacher. She's clearly had a lot of experience working with children and is a mother herself. My daughter looks forward to her lesson every week, and thanks to this she's eager to practice regularly and is seeing a ton of progress! Thanks, Ms. Anna!

        About

        My experience in a variety of styles leaves me open to the many options available to violinists beyond the classical world. While I stress a solid foundation in classical technique, I encourage students to follow their own path, whether it be jazz, rock, fiddling, or something else. I also have experience with the electric violin, which can be of some aid in pursuing alternative styles.
