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.

David is a fantastic teacher. I came to him with a difficult task. I had to learn how to play guitar well for a performance, with 2 weeks to prepare. I had no previous guitar experience. He not only taught me patiently, he also helped me put together compositions for the show. He truly went above and beyond as a teacher. He is extremely attentive and very adaptable to what you want as a student. I liked him so much I continued with lessons after the show!

David has been an outstanding instructor. I had no guitar experience whatsoever before coming to him and he has been extraordinarily patient with me and has never shown any signs of frustration. That said, he has been excellent at constructive criticism in order to get the most out of my abilities thus far. I would highly recommend him to any prospective or experienced guitarist seeking to learn or further improve their skills.

Michelle is the piano teacher I wished for when I was a kid! Michelle is patient, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. One of the things my 7-year-old loves most about Michelle is that she lets her explore her musical creative side. Michelle has guided my daughter in composing her own music, tackling tough songs of her own choosing and in introducing instruments like the harmonica into her selections. Michelle is always upbeat and full of positive energy and as a result my daughter loves her music lessons.

Michelle is great with kids. Our 7-year old daughter loves her piano lessons and always looks forward to them. More important, we can hear that she is really learning and making great progress. Two of her school friends have started lessons with Michelle after we recommended her.

I'm a long time student of Chris's and have taken guitar lessons with him both in person at Express Music and then continuing on with Skype lessons once he moved out of Florida. I was also involved in several Rock Band programs which Chris created, he was the instructor and our band's drummer. He is really good at this stuff. Chris's guitar skills and level of music theory knowledge are top notch, I have never been able to stump him with any songs or questions I’ve brought in. He is comfortable teaching all styles of guitar and its various techniques. Chris is also very patient and easy to get along with, a very cool guy. 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.

Josh is clearly very skilled with a guitar and has taught many students before. He will tailor the lessons towards what you would most want to learn, and in that sense he is very flexible. He is extremely friendly and punctual. Even in my first lesson he was able to help my technical ability improve dramatically, and I'm much more confident of being able to pick up new songs quickly. I look forward every week to the lessons.

I'm an experienced guitar player in the blues and rock vein, and wanted to stretch my ears and abilities into jazz. Josh is the perfect teacher for this, because he plays all those genres, and knows how to blend them. He's patient, and tailors the lessons to the individual. Whether you are an experienced guitar player or beginner, Josh will help you play better, and make it fun.

Recently, I decided to go back to one of my first loves -- classical guitar -- after decades of not playing. Frank is starting me with the essentials - scales! -- and I know this the foundation for everything to come. In just the first lesson, I learned several new things (ditch the foot stool, record the bass -- or treble -- line of those little exercises on your iPhone and play a duet, just for fun). I have a demanding work schedule, and Frank is super flexible with dates and times, which I sincerely appreciate. Looking forward to our lesson next week. One hour feels like five minutes, and that says a lot! :-)

Amy S.

Verified review

I highly recommend Frank as a music teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable, talented, and patient. I am an adult who started playing an instrument a few years ago, but didn't realize how much more I had to learn until my first lesson with Frank. Now I'm learning the nuts and bolts of music theory, and am already able to see how this knowledge will enable me to improvise on the spot (my ultimate goal). I can imagine that frank is an excellent teacher not only for adults but also for kids. He has a great sense of humor and a genuine desire to see his students succeed!

Aman has been an excellent guitar teacher. He is extremely patient and works at my pace. At times we've gone into music theory, and he is very knowledgeable about the guitar. Our lessons usually last an hour but we have gone over an hour a few times. I never feel rushed and get the sense that Aman really enjoys teaching and playing the guitar. I also like Aman's philosophy towards our lessons. While we will go over technical concepts and exercises, we also make a point to just jam a little bit during our lessons. The fact that Aman and I have similar music tastes only helps. I'd recommend Aman for anyone looking to learn rock guitar.

Sikandar S.

My sessions with Aman have been a great experience. His impressive technical skill set coupled with a natural aptitude for teaching makes him one of the best guitar instructors I have ever learned from. As a beginner it's easy to get frustrated, but Aman's personality is a great motivator. It has been a pleasure learning from him!

I have always wanted to learn to play the guitar, so I decided to try to give it a go on my own last year. Watching youtube's, buying iphone apps but found myself not really gaining any momentum. My boyfriend bought me lessons for Christmas with Josh and I am so happy he did. Josh is incredibly thorough, insightful and taking classes with him has been a blast. He breaks it down and really helps you understand the fundamentals of playing the guitar. I'm several lessons in and I already feel like I'm miles ahead from when I started. I HIGHLY recommend Josh, he's a wonderful teacher and learning from him has been so seamless! - ALANA

I took lessons years ago and since then picked up some pretty bad habits. Josh was not only extremely knowledgeable but was extremely patient with me. He has a very organic and genuine way of approaching teaching that motivated and inspired me. Other teachers I've had were technically sound but had no idea how to impart that knowledge to a beginner or intermediate skill level. Josh is the whole package. Whether your a beginner or an advanced guitarist looking to fine tune your craft Josh caters his style to fit the skill level of his students. I consistently recommend him to my personal network all the time.

Ari is an outstanding musician to begin with and his approach to teaching is very encouraging and supportive. Rather than just tell you that you did something wrong, he'll show you a better way to do it and explain why it's better. Rather than assigning hours of boring exercises that will make you hate your instrument, he'll teach you how to play songs that you love making you look forward to picking up your guitar and practicing. Ari is a great teacher for the complete beginner as well as an excellent resource for the seasoned professional.

Michael is an excellent teacher. I start having private lesson with him almost a year ago. He is really professional on teaching guitar, and he is extremely accommodating and patient despite my erratic schedule which prevented me from practicing as often as I needed to. He is able to teach as fast as you want, and does a great job of keeping lessons challenging without being stressful. I have tried different guitar lesson in NYC before I choose to learn guitar with Michael, and Michael is definitely the best.

My 12-year old nephew has been taking guitar lessons with John for about three years now and I can't believe how much he has improved! John is patient, kind and inspiring and my nephew is always excited for his next lesson with him. We have had a couple of teachers before John but John is by far the most experienced and motivating. He also has a very structured approach to the lesson and my nephew always walks away with a clear idea of exactly what he needs to practice. I should also mention that my nephew is interested in many different types of music and John is knowledgeable in all fields, and is happy to cater to my nephew's musical tastes while at the same time maintaining an organized teaching regiment. I would recommend John for anyone, he is a great teacher all around!

Kiyoshi is an excellent guitar teacher and a fun person to hang with for an hour. He has knowledge in a variety of musical genres, something that was important to me. I've been playing by ear for almost 50 years and wanted to go back and learn theory and technique, on both acoustic and electric. After just 3 months I can now easily transpose to different keys and am beginning to learn how to improvise leads based on a variety of scales. When teaching a song, he emphasizes technique in terms of rhythm, emphasis, tone, muting, bending, and attack. All great: I look forward to the lessons every week.

Claire N.

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.

I had seen Kiyoshi perform several times in the city and decided to try out a lesson. He’s an extremely patient and knowledgeable teacher who will make you better quickly, and the lessons are very enjoyable. I highly recommend working with him. -Josh

I have been receiving piano instruction from Robert for the past two months or so. Robert is passionate about teaching, and more importantly passionate about teaching the right playing technique. Growing up, I had several piano instructors who never taught me to curl my fingers and place all 5 at one time on the keys! I wish I'd met him earlier in life. Robert will also teach you to play the type of music you are interested in, is patient, perceptive and funny. I would recommend him without a doubt.

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!

Sonia has made learning to play the piano so much fun for this 57 year old who hasn't played the piano in over 40 years. She makes it informative and a lot of fun. I'm learning music theory! I look forward to practicing because she chooses pieces which challenge me to practice but don't overwhelm me. But the best part of my lesson is watching and listening to her play the piece I'm working on. She's an incredible pianist. I HIGHLY recommend Sonia.

Anthony is the reason I am finally learning guitar AND ENJOYING its addition of balance and relaxation to my life. I tried for several years with YouTube videos and one other teacher in NY, but the motivation waned. I've been excited to come to weekly lessons for 6 months with Anthony. He has an unusual combination of extreme skill and extreme humility and warmth. My parents are both professional classical musicians so even though I am a beginner in guitar I appreciate his skill. Also, they have commented that I am making great, steady progress and that the accompanying theory I am learning is very sound. Anthony is flexible, allowing me to learn the songs I want to play for my newborn and my husband, and adjusting them for my level, while working theory in between, always making it fun and laid back. I've lived in NYC 11 years and he is one of the nicest people I've ever met. This guitar teacher is a find -- a true diamond in the rough of manhattan!
