About

I have been taking banjo lessons from Richard Stillman for a year. He is a patient and inspiring teacher who listens to what his students want and adjusts his teaching accordingly. When I get stuck in between lessons, I can call him for advice. He will record difficult passages online so that you can reference them while practicing. If you want to play a particular style of music, he will find pieces for you. He is also an extremely talented musician and performer, with an impressive list of instruments that he has mastered. I highly recommend him.

About

I have taught private and group guitar lessons to middle, high school and college students in NYC at various after school programs for private schools, as well as CEMO (Centro Educacao Musical de Olinda) (Musical Education Center of Olinda), a school in Olinda, Brazil, where I taught jazz improvisation to middle and high school students. I have taught Jazz, Blues, folk, rock, classical, and Brazilian music i.e. Bossa Nova and Samba to students age 5-adults in their 70's for over 13 years. In the lesson, we will learn your favorite songs, chord playing, how to sing and play (if you like to sing :) ). various rhythms and strumming techniques for rock pop jazz or R&B songs. For jazz players/improvisers We can explore different uses of scales and lines, ear-training and transcribing solos of favorite artists, to acquire the skills to develop good ears to speak the language more fluently on the guitar. I have a series of different exercises for picking and fretboard technique for electric guitar be it for Jazz, pop, rock, or R&B, I have various finger-style picking techniques for Brazilian, classical and folk styles. I like to approach teaching my students on an individual needs basis. As all students have different strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes. The ultimate goal for me is in seeing my students feel good about themselves for having accomplished their greatest potential so that they can continue on to pursue music as a career or purely as a passion I teach primarily out of my private home studio in the West Village and may travel to students homes in Manhattan or Brooklyn, depending on location. Rates are affordable and can be negotiated over the phone or by email

About

I had on and off lessons with Chris for a year now. As you get older, it's difficult to learn something brand new. I was interested in learning on how to play the Bass. When I found Chris's name on the internet, I called him, and I had Bass Guitar lessons with him. He is just a great guy, he made my bass very doable. He made it fun. He incorporated music and the things that you love in the lessons. He is cool; he always checks on the progress of the lessons. He is awesome. Not only he is a great teacher, but he is also an amazing musician. And one great thing about him is that he loves what he teaches and he plays it very well. I will definitely recommend Chris to anyone.

About

I specialize in folk music instruction for: * Bluegrass, country, and blues guitar * Old-time, five-string banjo and music theory and history. * Solo and harmony singing: I help students find and improve their own voices. I encourage the voices they are born with, rather than forcing them into a mold of what we have come to label as good. I do not coach voice for opera. I have been playing music professionally for ten years and teaching for almost as long. I work comfortably with individuals or small groups of all ages (kids, adults, and seniors) and all skill levels, from beginners to advanced. My teaching philosophy is rooted in the belief that learning or improvement is a journey the student and the teacher take together. It is my duty as a teacher to work with the student's individual learning style rather than trying to apply a one-size-fits-all formula. Following are my credentials: * Studied music at Wesleyan University * Studied guitar and banjo with folk music virtuoso, Bruce Molsky (Beacon, NY) * Studied classical guitar with Terry Champlin (Poughkeepsie, NY) * Studied voice with master vocal coach, Charles Williams (Washington, DC) * Was a member of the winning group on the 2007 "People in Their Twenties Competition" on the A Prairie Home Companion radio show * Was awarded an Appalachian music fellowship by Berea College in 2010 * Have placed in competitions at several folk music festivals around the country

About

I offer private piano lessons in New York City and Manhattan. I am a piano teacher, and I have a studio in downtown Manhattan at Battery Park City. All ages and levels are welcome. Also, learn and master piano, guitar, dance, painting, and drums on DVDs. You can do finger exercises now on Your iPhone, iPad and iPod. This is great for children and useful for adults. I use finger, hand, forearm, arm and shoulder therapy and development exercise teaching method. I have been teaching piano for the past 10 years to all ages and all levels. The exercises for the fingers, hands, forearms, arms and shoulders were designed to help my students to succeed at the piano. They are the result of many years of observation of my students learning the instrument. I offer an ebook which is a teaching method and a comprehensive guide to finger, hand, forearm, arm and shoulder therapy and development for anyone interested in learning piano or any other musical instrument. You can use these exercises as warm ups before the actual piano lesson. These exercises are great for children and adults of all ages. There is no need to have an instrument in front of you to do them. This ebook offers illustrations of the exercises as well as links to tutorials which are designed to help you to do the exercises correctly. They are useful to any profession. Whether you are a secretary who does a lot of typing on a keyboard or you are a brain surgeon performing one of the most complex surgeries, you will find these exercises helpful because they improve agility, coordination and responsiveness of your fingers. No matter what task lies ahead, it's always nice to have finely tuned instruments (in this case the hands) to do it with. Refine your body and it'll be easier to get the results you are looking for. These exercises are great for anyone taking musical instrument lessons, teaching any musical instrument lessons, and for those who already playing and just looking for ways to add agility to their fingers, and perhaps find more rewarding way to approach an instrument. They are very useful to children to help them develop their hands properly. These exercises are also very useful to anyone who are misusing their hands in everyday activities. And here is the best part: in reality they are useful to everyone because they stimulate one of the largest portions of your brain which is devoted to operating your upper limbs. So, the end result from doing these exercises is you not only going to have healthy and agile hands and fingers, but you are also going to be stimulating your brain activities; therefore, you'll be getting more intelligent. And here is the bonus: You do not need to buy any hand strengthening tools to train your muscles. Your brain will do the work for free. The knowledge is yours; take it! The arrangement of bones and muscles in the body is a marvel of engineering. Your hand alone has 27 bones. Under my instruction, you will learn how to use your hands, fingers, elbows, forearms, arms, shoulders and body weight correctly that will give your music a fluid and pleasing sound, and you'll do it effortlessly regardless of how simple or complex the piano piece may be. For private piano instruction, please visit me. Do you need to improve your piano-sight reading ability? I am an excellent sight reader and will show you specific strategies you can immediately employ that will improve your own. Are you simply a beginner and don't know where to start? I am a patient, technically proficient, understanding yet result-oriented piano teacher. Whether you are a beginner, an intermediate or advanced piano player, I will help you achieve your goal. I am one of the best at what I do. I was born, raised and trained in St. Petersburg, Russia. I have been teaching piano in the United States for the past 10 years. I speak English and Russian fluently. Credentials: - My student is a prize winner of American Protege 2010 International Piano and Strings Competition. - He is a winner of American Fine Arts Festival 2010. - He had been awarded a gold medal in the AADGT (The American Association for Development of the Gifted and Talented) Passion of Music 2010 Festival.
