I am one of Davids students and I can tell you he is an excellent music teacher as well as producer and vocal coach. I started my piano lessons with David and within 3 or so months I was already playing full songs. Currently I am recording an album project at Posterity Studios with David as my producer/engineer and vocal coach. I can tell you that so far what has been pre-produced is very impressive and I am enjoying the direction the album is taking. Not only am I having David provide some of the music, but I also have live instrumentation being recorded as well....guitars, drums, and bass along with my background vocalist. So if you are looking to take lessons for piano or for vocal lessons or plan on cutting an album, Posterity Studios is the place to go. I am pleased with the lessons and also with the work David is doing on my album project.

He's a very friendly and fun teacher. Knows what he's talking about, and is eager to help. His prices are also significantly cheaper than most voice teachers in NYC which helps a lot. I'm looking forward to working with him this month :)

I've always sung and I took lessons with top rated voice 'teachers', but they really weren't teachers; they were really coaches and stylists. Rae de la Cretaz is a true pedagogue. She is a teacher of rare abilities...a vocal genie if you're lucky enough to find her. Unlike, coaches, she will custom build your voice from the ground up. I thought I knew the basics, but I soon discovered after uttering one note in front of her, that I knew nothing. Here I had been focused on style, placement, phrasing...only to discover that I really had never even mastered how to really breathe, and that so much of singing is breath work. How so much of great singing is 'getting out of the way' of your natural voice. (Easier said than done). I also never realized how mentally challenging it is to learn to sing correctly. So, here's the deal. If you have a voice, you need to treasure it, and make sure you use it properly so it stays healthy all through your life. Rae will give you that. When you sing, she has her eyes closed, and can tell you exactly what you did in your body that hampered that perfect note. She knows where you were holding tension in your body, and she'll be right every time. Unlike many people who call themselves teachers, she doesn't just let you sing all the way through. She will stop you over and over and correct you until you're producing the right sound. She's tough, precise, and amazingly perceptive. You need to surrender your ego at the door, know that she is committed to your being the best you can be, and allow her to do her magic. Soon, you will be able to identify what you're doing wrong, and fix it yourself. But you must surrender to her teaching technique and have patience and faith. For that, you will be rewarded with a healthy rich voice that responds to your mind like a Porsche grips the road on a hairpin turn. If all you want to do is be told how great you are and sing songs through your whole session, Rae isn't for you. If you're passionate about being the best singer you can be, and you want vocal mastery, and you're eager to learn a powerful technique, then Rae is for you. Her teaching is universal, and you will be amazed how quickly you improve regardless of your repertoire. Classical, pop, rock, Broadway....it doesn't matter. Her methods are genre agnostic....Watch your range increase, watch how your notes float out of you as if they have a life of their own, watch how your resonance comes alive, learn to feel when it's right instead of listening for it. You will identify yourself as a 'singer' with confidence in the consistency, reliability, and health of your voice. Call her. She's also a very nice person, and easy to talk to. She's won't lavish you with gratuitous praise, but she gets very excited when you get something right. And you'll know it. One caveat: it took me two or three lessons to learn how gifted a teacher she is. That's because it took me a few lessons to surrender my ego at the door.

I've been learning from Dom for a bit shy of two months now and have been loving every minute of it. While I'm a neophyte on guitar, my mother is a music teacher (guitar/piano/voice) and I grew up with vocal coaching at various levels, so I have experience with a variety of music training. I found Dom to be incredibly responsive; as other reviewers have touched on, he starts from the very beginning with vital information that I merely glossed over when self-teaching other instruments, but he will quickly amp up the pace of your lessons to your speed of learning. At this point, I leave each lesson feeling challenged, but I come into the next week with enough understanding to grow and meet the next batch. I'm also taking bass lessons with him once a month, and the sessions dovetail nicely into each other. He has a wealth of music history and experience at his disposal and you would do well to take advantage of that. Also, he has two of the sweetest cats I've come across in a while, so there's that.

Mike Shapiro is one of the best teachers I have ever had, period -- and I've had a bunch of good ones in various academic subjects. He is an outstanding communicator, his teaching methods WORK, and he sincerely cares about his students' progress. Add to that that he's a great guy, and you get the highest rating. Oh, and his rates are affordable, too.

Thank you for a beautiful wedding! Ivan has an extensive repertoire and played everything perfectly. He was prompt and professional, and could easily charge much more given the quality of service he provides, but I'm grateful that he was affordable! It was nice that the music was one less thing to worry about on my wedding day. I can't recommend him enough.

Mara has been teaching my ten-year-old daughter for about 10 months now. My daughter loves Mara's classes and looks forward to them all week. Mara is engaging and helps Isabella to focus. She does age-appropriate exercises with her to warm up and then to tone Isabella's voice. She is open to teaching songs that capture the interest of my daughter. She is flexible about scheduling and available at different hours of the day and even on weekends. She is prompt at responding to emails and texts. Mara is a pleasure to work with and my daughter absolutely adores her. I can't recommend Mara highly enough.

I've had a few guitar teachers in the past, but Chris was absolutely my favorite. He was always supportive and encouraging towards helping me reach my goal, and he catered to what you wanted to learn. I myself am a big Taylor Swift fan, so once we got past all the basic chords and scales, he helped learn the chord progressions and finger picking to the songs that I chose. Chris has an incredible ear for music and he is a very talented guitarist. I would highly recommend his services, and he's also just an insanely cool guy.

Anette is incredibly knowledgeable and capable when it comes to the voice and music in general. I'm amazed at how many times I've come away from a lesson with a new tool or perspective for my singing. She keeps it interesting and above all else relevant to what you are looking to achieve, curtailing lessons specifically to your abilities and progress. In the music world, where there are countless teachers, styles and approaches, I am certain that Anette's value add as an instructor is absolutely top notch. If you put the effort in, you will certainly get a great return on your investment with her guidance.

Gregor is a wonderful violinist and a thoughtful musician. As someone who has worked with him on and off for years, I'm positive he'd bring the same qualities into his studio and pass his love of music on to his students.

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.

Dave has been a wonderful teacher! I am a novice pianist and the lessons and homework assignments are tailored for my ability and progression. I never feel like I am being expected to do more than I am capable of. Dave is also a pleasant person to speak with, which is an added bonus, and extremely knowledgeable! I would recommend people of all ages and skill levels take lessons from him. Thank you Dave!

We are very happy with "The Eternal Artist Music Studio".Neha is our Violin teacher. She is one of the fine teachers we meet. She has a lot of experience. She really works very hard with our daughter to get her inside chamber music in her school. She is very good handling kids, our daughter likes her very much. She knows how to make the class fun and at the same time teach the kid what they want to know. I heard good reviews about other teachers also in this Music studio from other friends.We definitely recommend her and her music studio to our friend and families. I liked: Best music studio, Best music teachers, Reasonable price.

Corinn has taught my two daughters (13 & 15) piano and voice for the past 3 years. She is the best teacher we have had and we are thrilled that she has moved with us, by sheer luck, from London to NJ! She is extremely reliable and conscientious and is a talented and patient teacher who challenges my girls as individuals and has helped improve their skills tremendously. They look forward to their lessons with Corinn and feel as very comfortable with her. She is a very talented singer and pianist and is passing on her love of music to our daughters. We feel very lucky to have her influence in their lives.

David takes his work extremely seriously. Some teachers teach people for a paycheck, but he teaches out of passion and genuine love for his craft. As a teacher, he doesn't just point out mistakes and say "practice more", he identifies the most effective practice methods to get you the most out of your practice time in ways that he's meticulously tested and optimized in an almost scientific approach, which I've never seen in the usual musical or creative type. He's even used these same methods to take on what he calls the "Hundred Piece Challenge", where he learned, memorized and uploaded YouTube videos of over a hundred different pieces of music in a single year, all while still teaching numerous students and living his life normally. That's basically a new piece every 3-4 days! Learning with a teacher isn't just about finding mistakes and playing them over and over again, with David it's about learning how to learn for yourself in the most effective way, and his approach is truly amazing.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
