Nick's guy Ron was great! They worked with our budget and really got the crowd going. I would definitely hire him again. He had any song we wanted! Thanks guys.
I've really been enjoying my lessons with Mike. I've only ever played the drums a few times in school about 10 years ago and now with only 4 lessons under my belt I'm already up to lesson 8 in the book. I always look forward to class as he teaches you the fundamentals but also lets you feel your own beat and rock out to your favorite music. He's fun, professional and very good at what he does! Thanks Mike!!!
Absolutely perfect—that sums up our experience with Scott. We hired Scott to entertain our 40 guests at our annual holiday party in our home in Tribeca, and his skills, background and music blew away the other vendors who submitted quotes. Not only is he a wonderfully talented pianist, he is a composer, arranger and teacher. As such, he brings unparalleled skills in creating the perfect musical backdrop to any function…and our holiday soiree was no exception. Warm and welcoming in person and via email, he is professional, pleasant and aims to please. My wife & I asked Scott to prepare a set list filled with sounds of the season—and Scott prepared and performed an endless array of wonderful holiday classics infused with touches of jazz…providing the ideal mood for conversation, laughter and enjoyment. We will most certainly be booking Scott again for our private and corporate events moving forward, and strongly urge anyone looking for a fantastically talented pianist to hire him for any type of gathering, large or small.
I started singing lessons with Chelsea about one month ago. Though I have a passion for music and singing, I have always been shy and nervous to sing in front of others. Chelsea has already made me feel more confident in my voice! Chelsea is so talented and incredibly professional. She listens to what my strengths are and enhances them, as well as grasps my weaknesses and works with me to make them stronger. I also appreciate how Chelsea’s lessons don’t just stop once you leave her studio. Chelsea writes “homework” to take with you, only further encouraging you to work on what was practiced in class. It is SO helpful! I am so happy I started lessons with Chelsea!
I worked with Ivan on a project titled "A Void Home" some years back. The soundtrack music he provided was top notch, atmospheric and touching and perfectly suited to the mood of the space documentary his work was commissioned for. I've additionally heard his work on other projects and attended his live performances. Always special and fabulous.
Gary is FABULOUS! He is patient and kind, and really quite funny! Best of all, Gary can cultivate a child's natural talent for music. One of the many awesome skills Gary has is the ability to group children together to form bands. He puts bands together where the children bring out each other's musical strengths. These kids have ended up forming friendships and bonds that are long lasting. Even a shy child feels comfortable performing, after Gary's encouragement and tutelage. My oldest child, now in college, attributes his love for music to Gary. We cannot say enough positive things about Gary and encourage everyone to bring their children to Gary for music lessons.
Michelle was a wonderful singing coach! We will be hiring her again!!
Christine is a truly phenomenal teacher. If you have any hesitations about starting voice lessons because you are afraid of singing in front of other people, have no fear! Christine made me feel completely comfortable from the very first minute of our first lesson together. She is classically trained and extremely knowledgable about singing. I would recommend beginning lessons with her to get a solid technical foundation even if you eventually want to sing pop or R&B (i.e. she is not just for classical/opera singers!) That being said, I've met several of her other students and heard them sing and some are very serious students of the craft; she is an excellent teacher for experienced singers as well. During lessons, she plays her (baby?) grand piano in a large private area of her home. The walls in the singing area are filled with books of sheet music, but she also happily found specific songs online for me to work on when she didn't have the music already. She has an incredible ear- she truly listens to you and can pinpoint and explain to you exactly what to change (your posture or breathing, enunciation etc.) to instantly improve your tone and pitch. Improving your voice is a long process, and there are no magical tricks (except practice practice practice!). But with Christine as your guide, you will see improvement and most importantly, you will gain confidence. She truly believes in her students, which helps them believe in themselves too.
I actually got in touch with Jimi through Thumbtack, and was pleased with the lessons I got right from the start. We're working on music theory and composition, and I managed to learn something I regarded as monstrously difficult for years in the span of a month or two. Jimi makes music accessible and "not scary", adapting his lessons to each student's needs. Highly recommended.
working with sean was a great experience. as a beginner adult student, he was always very patient with me and understanding of my busy schedule. i found his lessons to be challenging and informative while at the same time being really fun. he never made learning piano feel like a chore. i learned a lot, not just how to play the piano, but also about music theory--the guy reall knows his stuff! i'd highly recommend sean to anyone at any level and was sad to find out he was leaving the bay area.
Spencer & Sequoia are abosolutely amazing! I hired them to play a song for my proposal in Central Park and they were great. They played the song perfectly and really created a magical and initiate atmosphere! It was better than I could have ever imaginged. Thank you guys! 👏👏
Barbara matches music students with music teachers.
I've known Kevin for over ten years as a friend, a guitar teacher and a musician. He has an outstanding music knowledge base when it comes to theory, harmony, and composition. I studied with him for about three years and rate him as a teacher at the top of the list. He is very patient, and simpatico! He knows how to break things down so they can be easily grasped, and used. I am primarily interested in using the guitar as compositional instrument. Kevin has helped me find the most suitable arrangements and chord voicings for my work. Just recently I asked him to perform and record one of my songs, composed for my sweethearts birthday. I was very pleased with his interpretation of the piece, and my partner was enchanted. In conclusion, I highly recommend Kevin as a consomate professional, an excellent musician, and one great guy.
Kino is my piano teacher. She's not just professional but really cares about students. I learn faster with her because she's patient to me. I enjoy her class a lot.
Matt has knowledge of, and an appreciation for ALL types of music. Of course this is difficult because he attended Stony Brook in the 60's and was exposed to the very best of Rock music. But he transcended that period, kept his high regards for Dylan and Jimi, and continued to grow as a musician and person. I've seem him at several jobs, and he reads the audience very well and makes the event a happy occasion for all.
I am writing this review as a Colleague. While I have not taken lessons with Candice I know as a seasoned Professional Musician and Teacher myself what makes excellence: and excellence is what Candice's Music Studio offers. Candice is Passionate, Crafted at her Art, and an Excellent Leader and Team Player. It takes a lot more than a Degree in Music to be a great Teacher. You have to have Talent,Heart as well as intellect, instinct and: a desire to constantly be expanding your own horizons while lifting those up around you. Candice has those things in spades. Professionally, I refer Students and Professionals to Voice Studios all the time especially in NY. I would not hesitate to send my own Students to Candice's Music Studio. Very Best - Jen M Vanella Vocal Specialist, Artist, Educator, & Advocate
Our family has been students of The Piano Workshop at Chester for more 8+ years. We are at-home students, so we are not always in the studio, but when we are, we are so impressed with the staff and the overwhelming love of music and dedication to passing that love along to the students. While our teachers have turned over through the years, the excellent talent and teaching skills have not. My son's current teacher, Sonia Kiernan, is a very special person, not only a very talented musician. How someone keeps a 15-year old boy's love for piano thriving like she does is beyond me!
Adam is an incredibly patient and motivational teacher who easily adapts to whatever style of learning and music work best for you. I'm very interested in music theory, and have found Adam not only knowledgeable about any of the questions I have, but also able to relay the concepts in memorable, easy-to-learn ways. His lessons are well-paced, and I always leave excited to go home and start practicing. Would highly recommend Adam as an instructor!
We hired Sho in early May to perform as a string quartet at the cocktail hour for our wedding, and we could not be happier with his performance! I love classical music but do not know string quartets as well, so Sho helped recommend some songs that would fit well. He was always very responsive and professional in communicating while planning the event. And best of all was the performance, as the quartet looked and sounded superb! It is clear that they all love music and are very talented and professional. I will highly recommend Sho to anyone in the future!
A true local music store in the very best sense of the phrase and what's missing in a lot of big box stores these days. Great gear, a great staff who care about the customers, lessons, clinics, the whole shebang. Highly recommended.
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!!
