Barbara is an excellent music instructor. I have had 3 sessions so far and feel like I have learned so much from her. I can't wait to see how much more I will improve in the next 3 sessions. I'm glad I signed up for singing lessons at the Alexander Music Studio!

Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.

From the start, Rock House has been outstanding, with a welcoming, friendly and seriously creative vibe. Extremely talented teachers, and an overall superior, professional outfit. Instructors are actual, working musicians who are certified in the Rock House Method of teaching and are deeply involved in the industry, playing alongside other well-known professionals. They truly care about their students (all ages) and help them work towards their potential. My son has been guided on a learning path for guitar and looks forward to his weekly lessons. His instructor is enthusiastic, very in tune with his needs and an all around cool guy. Rock House sponsors many events, giving the students an opportunity to play publicly (if they choose). One is a teen/youth open mic held at the Community House. Students can play solo, with a teen house band composed of Rock House students, other musicians their age or with a backing track. Giving students an opportunity to show their skills and gain confidence playing in front of others. Rock House has been inspiring, welcoming and encouraging. 5 stars all around. I highly recommend Rock House to everyone I know.

Excellent staff and instructors. I have been affiliated with the Rockhouse school for over a decade and the school has done nothing short of pushing it's own boundaries everyday to perfect a learning system that is concise, unique and second to none. Highly recommended for lessons of all instruments.

My 2 children (ages 9 and 7) have been taking piano lessons from Laura for the past 8 months now and she is wonderful! My children have very different musical preferences and she is very accommodating to both. She makes the lessons fun and they always look forward to lesson days. My children are very eager to practice and learn new songs (which she provides them) and they have made leaps and bounds since Laura has become their teacher. We are very thankful to have found such a wonderful and knowledgeable teacher. I would highly recommend her!

So far I am loving my classes with Laura. She is very professional, and I'm already seeing an amazing improvement. She's teaching me how to play the violin,and I already started reading music. She's very patient, and is very detailed in her explanations. I'm a 31 year old student, and I'm having a ton of fun learning my first instrument. As soon as my kids are old enough Laura is gonna be their piano, or violin teacher.

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.

My two sons are taking Suzuki Piano lessons with Moe's Piano Studio. Joseph is ten years old and every week he looks forward to his piano lesson at Moe's Piano Studio. Moe has been teaching him for over two years. We originally chose Moe's because he is truly dedicated to teaching piano and to his students mastering Suzuki. Moe uses a variety of games and activities to keep the students motivated and on track. He also rewards his students when they reach milestone achievements by awarding certificates, trophies and prizes. Most importantly, Moe holds a number of piano performance recitals throughout the year so the students always have a goal they are working towards. Moe has a great personality. He is professional yet at the same time friendly and funny. This is why Moe is also perfect for the very young student. Matthew was just 4 years old when he started Suzuki piano at Moe's Piano Studio. The many motivating games and activities that Moe employs while teaching Matthew enhance the learning experience. Both of my sons are excellent piano players due to the first class lessons at Moe's. - Marta, Franklin Lakes

I absolutely love taking piano lessons with Moe. I got a late start at 22 years old, but Moe has helped me learn so many pieces already in the few months we’ve been working together. He does an incredible job of incorporating what each student needs most into the lessons. I started my lessons to help with my songwriting, for example, so Moe has included pop music and songwriting along with the normal Suzuki training. I highly recommend Moe as a teacher to anyone of any age that wants to learn piano!

I have had the honor of taking guitar lessons with Larry Meyer for about 3 years. Larry introduced me to the world of JAZZ and the concept of musical freedom through improvisation. Larry has truly inspired me to be a musician, and to think beyond my original guitar mind set. If you ask him a question, you will get an answer backed by a lifetime of musical exploration and experience, not to mention the serious undeniable pure talent. It is impossible to get a lesson from Larry and not be infected by his excitement of the music and the joy of revealing that infinite world to an aspiring player. I thank you Larry for your friendship and patience as you helped direct me through each musical stepping stone.

After just my first lesson with Larry, I know that under his instruction my guitar playing will develop significantly. I am an intermediate player that feels stuck, needing help to get to the next level. Larry listened to my playing, listened to my goals, and in just that first lesson, convinced me that he could help me. He is an amazing musician, with an incredible amount of both performing and teaching experience. He can help all levels of musicians, and can explain theory and technique in a way that is not too much for you to absorb. I cannot wait to get a few months of lessons under my belt with him!

Our son has been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for several years. Out of all the teachers our son has had, Jonathan is far and away his favorite. Lessons mix technique, theory, scales, improvisation and songs; genres include classical, jazz, rock, pop and more. Jonathan can play anything and more than that, can teach anything! Jonathan respects his students and teaches to their ability—lessons are fun and fast moving, yet demanding. For more advanced students, Jonathan’s performance background is a bonus--he has helped our son prepare for concerts at Madison Square Garden and The Bitter End. Jonathan has been with us every step of the way and we will no doubt be with him every step of our son’s musical career. I would whole-heartedly recommend Jonathan to students of all levels." Thank you so much Jonathan!!!

Simply put, Jonathan is the best. I decided to start taking piano lessons for the first time at age 40 (!), and couldn't be happier to have Jonathan as my teacher. He has a mastery of the piano so that he can teach all different types of music - whatever you are looking to learn. He is patient and explains things clearly. I have learned so much already! Most importantly, Jonathan has a great personality and the lessons are FUN. I look forward to going every week. Jonathan is worth every penny. My only regret is that I didn't find him sooner!

My kids always enjoyed their piano lessons with you and actually practiced without me having to threaten them! Thanks to you, they both still play. Adam plays for the sheer enjoyment of it. He has a keyboard in his room in Virginia (he's still in the Navy) and puts on his headphones and plays! Thanks, Jonathan! Besides being a fantastic musician, you know how to inspire and teach.

Alberto paired up with Miriam Waks to perform at our wedding celebration at the Nomad Hotel Rooftop. Both Alberto, pianist and Miriam, singer looked fabulous on the day and their performance and music selection was perfect. Communication was very clear and prompt from inquiry up until the day of. They performed some jazz and romantic songs that added such a special unique element to our wedding. They were both extremely positive, professional and polished and we couldn't be happier that we chose them. All of our guests were extremely impressed and can not stop raving about them.

4/12/17 - I just met Alberto today when he gave me a free lesson through which he/I can asses if this is a good match. He gave me exercises, techniques and suggestions which can improve my playing. He told me to imagine a piano piece as an orchestral composition which should help me with my articulation and expression. He is very generous with his time, & I know his musicality and musical skills will rub off on me with succeeding lessons. N.V.

Started learning the piano last year at the young age of 57. Bought a inexpensive upright and a couple of books. Did the youtube thing also. Didn't have cash for lessons.(or maybe just didn't want to pay for them).Anyway, a year later i honestly felt i could only go so far without personal direction. Finding this website I stumbled upon Maria. I have completed five lesson now. At first i was completely uncomfortable trying to play in front of her. She reassured me that this was normal. Her professional demeanor helped me feel at ease. Theory wise she explains things in a way that i can pick up on in mins.( sometimes i couldn't even find ans on the internet). I always leave her with a sense of confidence. She seems to know how to push you just enough to excel to the next step. Never ever any pressure. Marie picks up on your weaknesses and targets them. As you can tell from my review i feel very lucky to have found her. I look forward to continuing my weekly lessons. Marie was born to teach. FIVE STARS across the board.

Nicole helped my daughters, who are 8 and 13, learn how to play the violin and cello respectively. She gave my girls private lessons out of our home for an hr 2-3 times a week. Nicole is very patient, effective in her teaching methods, and is very knowledgeable in both the cello and violin. I remember one time both my daughter had a recital coming up and she stayed an extra 2hrs longer to help them, and I didn't ask her to! She wanted them to do well and was more than happy to stay. Nicole was always 10 minutes early to our home and I would refer anyone wanting to learn the violin, cello, or beginner piano lessons to Nicole. Couldn't have asked for anyone better! Parent's, employers, and prospective learners, you will not be disappointed with Nicole! Sincerely, One proud and happy mother! Thanks Nicole

WHAT A TERRIFIC TEACHER. Sometimes, educators who have been teaching for a while forget what it's like to be the "learner" and can in turn be condescending, impatient, and unwilling to simplify difficult concepts for their students. JOE, on the other hand, was PROFESSIONAL, PATIENT, and PLEASANT. When explaining certain musical concepts to me, he explained it in my language. He encouraged me to ask as many questions as i could come up with; no question was off limits. He tailored the music lesson to my skill set, and even provided study material for me to work with in between our one-on-one lessons. I am excited again about playing piano and learning how to read music!!!!

I worked with Lonnie for ten years, from when i began my studies in jazz piano at age 11 until I went to college at Berklee School of Music in Boston. We worked in all the different aspects of music, from jazz improvisation and interpretation, to how to play with ensembles, as well as orchestrating and arranging. I always admired Lonnie's willingness to work with me on what i wanted to work on. As a young musician my creativity was pretty boundless and it was hard to get me to learn music in a conventional way. Lonnie showed me how important it was to listen to music in order to learn. I received the right amount of motivation and guidance from my lessons with Lonnie to propel me into a life of musical work, as i currently make a living as a freelance composer in Los Angeles. I owe a lot to my teachings as a young musician and I heartily recommend Lonnie's services as a music instructor. I can be reached at 310 729 3866 or at dcharnis@gmail.com

I took guitar lessons for three years with Lou at U Music and the quality of instruction was incredible. Lou clearly knows what he's talking about when it comes to understanding the guitar. He provides a holistic and fun approach to learning the instrument, backed up by many years of experience as a musician and teacher. I would recommend him as a teacher to anyone from the earliest beginners to the most veteran guitar players. I'm also pleased to say that every one of the instructors at U Music is friendly and easy to talk to. I took voice lessons with Ann (which were also fun and helpful), and I've had numerous chats about music and other things with both Greg the bass teacher and Nick the drum instructor. Great people, great instruction in my experience, and altogether a great place to learn about the wonderful world of music.

As an adult taking up the guitar can be a humbling experience. However based on Lou Ubrianco's stellar reputation and experience I started taking lessons and was very impressed with the learning experience. Later I decided to move south and I knew the one thing I would miss was my guitar lessons. Since then I've had 3 different instructors and none of them were at the level as Lou. I would recommend U Music for students of all ages and levels of playing. Also for different styles of music as I was into Country Music at the time. Being as honest as I can, although I have no personal lesson experience with the other instructors I know that they would have to excel at their profession or they would not be at U Music. I would highly recommend lessons for all at U Music!

After studying piano for several years with teacher who focused on music theory I had attained a high level of theoretical knowledge, but still could play the piano well. I had a friend whose son had studied with Jeff and was able to play professionally. When I started with Jeff I told him that I wanted to focus on technique and play 'pretty" music. We did just that, with him arranging songs that fit my level, customized for me. I had another problem, I spend five months a year in California, and was unable to find a suitable teacher. Jeff used his considerable computer expertise to set up lessons on Skype(Skype was in its infancy in 2004). Those lessons are as good as the ones I take at his studio. Working with Jeff opened the door to a greater appreciation of classical music, and knowledge of the great composers. We also did Pop, Rock and Jazz tunes. After all this time I have yet to outpace his teaching skills. Jeff specializes i teaching youngsters, but also has many seniors, like myself. I highly recommend him for students at all levels.

The ones that stick out the most are patient, encouraging, flexible, warm and enthusiastic. I highly recommend him!

Helene was my piano teacher from kindergarten through high school. She taught me how to read, understand, play and love music. Furthermore, my early -and in-depth- start with piano prepared me for years of trumpet in various advanced bands. Although I am not currently taking lessons, I still sit down to play piano whenever I get the chance. I'll play anything from Bach to Beethoven to Josh Groban to new and classic Disney - really anything I'm in the mood for. Helene's teaching has made me proficient enough in piano and music in general such that I can truly enjoy playing. Thanks Helene!!
