Bass lessons with Dom are amazing! He takes great care to patiently teach me music theory. His lessons are well-paced and informative. He is encouraging, skilled, and thorough. Learning from a guitar player as skilled as Dom is truly a dream. I can't wait for the day we will truly start jamming together!

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.

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.

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.

Josh is an awesome instructor! Everything we worked on was based off of what I wanted to learn. He sequenced everything so I could be challenged and have stuff to work on but wasn't overwhelmed. He really knows his stuff, teaching me the technique of how to pick properly and the basics of music theory. My soloing sounded way better after only a few sessions! Josh is a great person and is very knowledgable, I highly recommend him for all levels of guitar

Marty has been a wonderful to piano teacher to my two children. My daughter had taken piano lessons two years ago for one year, and Marty picked up immediately on what skills she had and how to improve upon them. She is always excited on days we have piano. While Marty was a bit reluctant teaching my son at first due to his young age, he recognized how eager he was to learn and gave him a chance. My son absolutely loves to learn piano from “Mr.Marty”- and by his third lesson he was playing with both hands! Marty is patient with my children, makes learning fun, and at the same time teaches them properly the skills and habits needed to properly play the piano. My children literally run into piano lessons because they love it so much, and as their mother, I couldn’t be happier with the skills they are learning as well as strengthening their love of music.

Harry has a great love of music and superb knowledge of viola, violin and piano. He's terrific at imparting theory during a lesson and always makes up the time if he arrives late or has to miss a lesson. He's cheerful and high-energy. Highly recommended.

Mr. Batchelor gave me lessons for the electric bass guitar. His teaching was set to my personal needs as a musician, rather than being forceful. I was able to quickly regain my confidence as a bass player and improved greatly over a short amount of time. The theory that he taught me through the bass helped me get into my college's music conservatory. I now study Music Studio Production at Purchase College. Very good man, teacher and mentor

Kevin is a pro, through and through. I couldn't ask for a more patient, knowledgable teacher! I've taken lesson with Kevin for a few months now, and my music theory and guitar playing have benefited substantially. Kevin always has ideas for exercises to help reinforce a concept we're working on. Despite his incredible expertise, he is always patient and approachable, never pretentious or "over-my-head". I only wish I'd started taking lessons with him sooner! I would 100% recommend Kevin.

Working with him is a pleasure. He has amazing insights and working with him has helped me improve my skills quite a lot. I would highly recommend his lessons to anyone who wants to get better at playing the piano and have fun doing it!

Dan was so flexible in arranging a "birthday gift" of guitar lessons for our daughter. Though the schedules haven't worked out yet for the lessons, my daughter is really looking forward to such. Friendly, and approachable man. A pleasure to deal with!

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

Mr. Connor has been working with my children the last two years. He is an amazing teacher who is very patient and kind to my children. He is teaching them Chinese, singing, drum and guitar. Unlike other teacher we had in the past, Mr. Connor incorporate games and songs into all his lessons which makes language learning much more interest. My children adores Mr. Connor and looking forward to work with him every time.

So far Bob is a great teacher. He was easy to talk to and enhanced my enthusiasm to play guitar. I've only had one lesson so it's a bit too early to tell, but the whole process from start to finish and the friendliness of the staff is superb.

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!

To whom it may concern: Jacob Sayraf has been teaching my 10 year-old son Steven the guitar and vocals for over a year and a half now. He has been a wonderful teacher, and my son has made great progress under his tutelage. Before he met Jacob he didn't know how to play the guitar at all. Jacob is also sharing with Stevie a wealth of songs from a broad range of folk, country, rock, pop, and standards. Some of these include: "We'll Meet Again", "Bad Bad Leroy Brown", "Blue Moon of Kentucky", "House of the Rising Sun", "Blue Suede Shoes", "In My Life", "Hot Tamales and Theyr'e Red Hot", and "Don't Worry, Be Happy". Stevie is getting a sound musical education through Jacob. Jacob is doing a great job of not only teaching Stevie the guitar, but also the theory of music behind it. He gives Stevie homework, which Stevie dutifully does. Jacob also goes out of his way to borrow sheet music books from the library so he can lend them to Stevie. Most importantly, Stevie has a lot of fun with Jacob and always looks forward to his next lesson, which to me is a sign of a great teacher. I would definitely recommend Jacob for any teaching position you have. Sincerely, Jeffery Ringle

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!

Richard (Ian) Farrington is an absolutely amazing guitar teacher. To start, Ian is a fantastic & knowledgeable musician and guitarist. He is very good at communicating his lessons and teaching. He really knows how to simplify a concept or technique and then build from there into more complex techniques and faster playing. Saying that, in the few months Ian and I have worked together, my guitar skills have drastically improved. Next is Ian's Professionalism, which in my opinion is unmatched in the industry. He is on time, extremely well prepared, kind and understanding. He emails me a lesson plan the night before so I can properly prepare for our sessions and really make the most of our time together. He also assisted in creating a binder in order to organize my music and techniques. Overall Ian's Professionalism and organization really allows me to get the most value from our lesson time as well as my individual practice time. Ian has been an absolute pleasure all around in terms of his attitude, knowledge/teaching skills, organization, commitment and overall professionalism. I can't say enough about him. 10 out of 10!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
