I have been taking jazz guitar lessons from Dom for almost a year and a half now. His particular approach to teaching music is very refreshing from all others I've encountered before. Dom has a certain way of finding a student's particular sound on their instrument and personalizing each lesson to better bring out this sound. My experience so far has been completely positive and I look forward to more lessons.

Phenomenal musician, great teacher, cool cat - I rate David First INFINITY STARS. I've studied music here and there, but it wasn't until I started taking bass lessons with David a few years ago that it all came together for me. He explains music theory in a way I can understand and translate to actual practice that is not a chore, it is fun and addictive! Besides developing technical skill, Dave also helped me grow as a musician by getting over feeling awkward jamming with other people. I eventually felt comfortable enough to audition for bands and ended up in a fun one, playing out in the city even! David was there for my first gig, too. My husband was so impressed with my progress, he started guitar lessons last year and has come so far, it is amazing. We feel like Grasshoppers to David's Master Po. He is the best, ok I'll stop now, you get it.

We had our first piano lesson with Sean and he was wonderful. We met him at the studio and he was right on time and very professional. Sean worked great with the twins and took time to evaluate their playing ability. We will be working with Sean moving forward and are expecting great results.

Guitar lessons can be boring, but not with Steve. Steve's guitar playing its Eddie Van Halen's level and best of all is that he is very humble and a funny teacher. He will take his time to explain you note by note on the entire fretboard. I always have fun learning new scales, arpeggios, triads etc. with Steve. You will actually get exited every time a guitar lesson with him is coming up. A guitar instructor that actually knows how to play pretty much anything on guitar, but if you are into Rock, Classic Rock, Hard Rock, Metal, Jazz and Jazz Fusion, you should definitely take guitar lessons with Steve. - Winston Beast Master (Khiazma band)

I take piano lessons from Michael. He is a great teacher, particularly because he customizes his lessons to suit the students' skill levels and musical goals. He prepares material ahead of class and has a nice structured approach that I find helpful in developing a good feel for the piano. It's great that he focuses on important technicals like tempo, playing technique and theory, and his lessons are well-rounded, with just the right amount of time spent on each aspect. I like that he is flexible with both scheduling and the curriculum, and willing to tailor material to what I am interested in. He also helped me pick out an excellent piano within my budget, which was very helpful. Overall, a great experience, and definitely recommended!

Verified review

I found the search for classical guitar instruction rather daunting until I discovered the website of James Lorusso (jameslorusso.com). My initial contact from several other entities and individuals proved far too commercially driven for my taste. I was interested in taking formal lessons and learning how to read music not just learning from tablature or playing by ear which I had done for over fifty years. A few hours following my e-mail inquiry I was surprised and gratified to receive a personal call from Mr. Lorusso and was in his studio the very next day. I was immediately impressed with this gentleman. His warmth and finely honed pedagogic approach were so apparent it was only a matter of minutes into that introductory lesson I became convinced I had found the quintessential teacher a true pedagogue and a man of such talent and encyclopedic musical knowledge I was drawn to him like a magnet. Seldom in life does one come across a resource as substantial and charismatic as this gentleman look no further, you have just found a genius who's also as warm as the day is long! My name is Tom I'm 67 years of age and feel like a kid when I'm in Jims studio. In three months he has given me gifts of learning and brought me to places I thought were unachievable. He will do the same for you!

I first met John when my son started taking guitar lessons with him. Sitting in on my son’s lessons I was incredibly impressed with not just John’s knowledge of music and theory but his gift of teaching. I, myself, was a self-taught guitarist whose knowledge of chords, theory and technique was severely limited. I had taken lessons with a few instructors in the past to try and gain a better understanding and become a more confident and competent player but could never quite connect. In the short time I have been taking lessons with John I have made great improvements. His ability to clearly explain and make sense of each lesson has allowed me to make the necessary connections, filling in my gaps of knowledge, and allowing me to make great progress in every facet of the guitar from chords and theory to picking and strumming techniques. John is incredibly talented as both a musician and a teacher. I would recommend him to anyone looking to bring their playing to a higher level.

His lessons are fun and engaging, and you can tell he's passionate about music and seeing his students thrive. Highly recommended!

I am a busy business owner with limited time to explore my creative side. Knowing this, I wanted to take up acoustic guitar lessons, but needed to connect with someone with the right balance of push and patience. I was fortunate to find Paul. He is very passionate about music, and that comes through in our lessons. I'm learning, having fun, and through Paul have found a new outlet for my creative side. Thank you Paul!

Jim’s lessons strike a perfect balance between practical, real-world skills and theoretical knowledge. What started for me as “I'll take a few lessons to get some basic skills on guitar as a second instrument” turned into four years of serious study covering many, many concepts, styles and techniques. His ability to accurately read a students skill level and the direction of their interests (as well as his sense of humor) enables him to build a curriculum that stays interesting, challenging and fun. Thanks to Jim, I have a much more complete understanding of the guitar, and of music in general. Ethan Brooklyn, NY

I am a complete beginner on the guitar, so it was daunting when I decided to start taking lessons. But Kiyoshi has been kind and patient and energizing from the get-go, never rushing me or making me feel overwhelmed, which music teachers have done in the past. I really enjoy the way he intersperses scales and chords with learning songs and solos of my choosing.

Lou is an incredibly accomplished guitarist who studied with, among others, Eddie Simon (Paul Simon's brother). I needed some structured guitar lessons that would allow me to understand chord structure better. Lou took me through understanding and practicing simple scales through more advanced chords. He always came prepared with charts and tablature for me to keep and his fee was incredibly reasonable. Plus he's really funny. :-)

Rich is genuinely interested in ensuring that I become the guitarist I want to be. He is motivating, highly instructive, very interesting and a lot of fun as well. When I am practicing at home, I can hear his voice in my ear, encouraging me and pushing me. Getting connected with Rich as an instructor was a great way to ensure that I get all the joy out of the guitar that I had hope to....and then some!
