I have known Ivan for many years and have heard him perform many times in many different venues. He is full of talent and knowledge, his repertoire is huge, and his music is soulful and full of feeling. He is truly and profoundly passionate about music (composition, performance, teaching). He is reliable, personable, charming, and aiming to please. Highly recommended!

Lessons with David were great. I've been playing for more than 10 years but haven't progressed much beyond looking up tabs on the internet and playing along to the songs I like. In just a few lessons, David helped me see the fretboard as a whole and play scales and chord patterns up and down the neck. As a result, my playing is freer and I have greater comfort in moving around on the fretboard and staying in key. It was exactly what i was hoping to learn! I'd recommend David without hesitation. He works hard to understand where your playing level is at and tailors his instruction to push you to the next level.

Jimi is an amazing teacher. His versatility and depth of knowledge, not only of guitar, but of music theory make his style of instruction completely tailored to the interests of student. Jimi is a musician in his heart and his passion for music is tempered only by his intense humanity. There are no drills, there's no yelling. There's only an immersion in music and true scaffolding of skills. Additionally, you'll find yourself laughing and learning all the same in a way that breeds a true life long love of playing. My lessons with Jimi added a dimension to my life in knowing and understanding music that is truly like a 6th sense. He enablers me to shear the world in ways I never would have otherwise. Anyone would be well served to take lessons with him--or just to talk about music with him.

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

Mark Weisman has been my son's piano teacher since he was 11 years old. Alex is now a proficient pianist at age 21. Under the tutelage of Mark, my son advanced from a music student to a true musician. Mark is an engaging teacher who introduces his students to a variety of music genres, keeping classical, standards and popular music all part of the student's repertoire. My son Alex's interest in music was spurred on by Mark's enthusiasm and style of teaching. The Music Workshop conducts annual performances for parents and friends so we can see the progress our children have made. My son is now in college and still studies with Mark on breaks and in the summer. Alex belongs to The Jazz Band at Loyola University as well as his own band. He has played professionally for cocktail hours and theater productions. Mark has inspired Alex to continue his music into his adulthood. Mark Weisman is an exemplary teacher and person.

I began working with Chris around four years ago, as a freshman in college seeking a specific higher music education--I have been a musician my entire life, and desire education on a conservatory level, but do not actually want to attend conservatory. I have found that most music teachers of any kind have their specific way of teaching, usually a combination of traditionalism and their personal methodology. This doesn't work for everyone, and in my opinion, is often the reason why most kids don't stick with piano lessons. In my case, Chris and I had coincidentally similar experiences learning music--we both have strong ears that we could use to "cheat" as it were. I wanted to dig deeper into theory and find someone who understood how I heard and thought without judgment so that they could help me advance--Chris was exactly that person. We started ear training lessons regularly at my apartment and have not stopped since! He is such a pleasure to be around, extremely knowledgable without forcing anything on you, and extremely perceptive which makes him a fantastic personalized teacher. I am truly lucky to have met him, and would recommend him to any music student from a beginner to a seasoned pro looking to brush up and stay on their toes!

I have been taking Piano lessons with Robert for the past month and a half. I started as a complete beginner and I've really enjoyed my lessons. Robert is an excellent teacher who provides a structured method to learning while also keeping you motivated throughout. I'm already able to play a few songs and I'm looking forward to getting better!

Sean has given lessons to my 5 year old twins separately 3 times now. The boys really enjoy working with him. We are impressed with how much progress they've made in such a short time. Sean is punctual and professional. He keeps the lessons fun, engaging and productive. He also reviews what they worked on with me so I can help them practice between lessons. We couldn't be happier!

I had a great lesson with Jim. By the end of the first class I'd been able to try a few different types of saxophones and just about play notes on each of them, despite never having even held a Saxophone prior to that. He had a very relaxed style and even took the time to suggest music to listen to once the class had finished. I'd definitely recommend classes with him to friends or anyone else wanting to learn.

Do not hesitate to work with Ken, he is a wonderful teacher! My 14-year old son has been taking alto sax lessons with Ken for over a year and will be entering high school in September. I can see Ken being a long-term fixture during my son's high school years. Ken is incredibly talented and loves to share his knowledge and experience with his students. He does it very well. He is VERY easy to work with and he has a great sense of humor, which my son loves. My son very much enjoys his lessons. In working with my son, Ken has upped my son's "game" in so many ways and I can't wait to see what the future holds musically for him. Ken came highly recommended to me and for good reason. He opens up new worlds and new doors for his students. He is very invested in his students' lessons and wants the best for them. If you have the opportunity to work with Ken, take it.

The customer service was outstanding each time we went there, my husband loved his teacher and he had a great time at his lesson. Would highly recommend this place to anyone.

About

To keep it short, I just love to teach and spread the knowledge of what I know in dance and in music. I was once just like everyone that wants to take these lessons and learn something new and I know what that feeling is when someone finally accomplishes their goal and learned some new art form and I like to be the one giving others a chance to experience that feeling.
