I have been taking flute lessons with Dan for the past four months. My technique and improvisational skills have increased dramatically since I started with Dan, and I have seen myself grow as a musician much quicker than when I was getting lessons elsewhere. I also always feels very comfortable asking him any questions that I have (no matter how silly) and I find that he is very good at communicating complex ideas. He's also incredibly kind and patient! I would definitely recommend him to anyone for flute (and saxophone/clarinet) lessons - he's a step above other teachers in the Philly area.

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.

My 9 year old daughter wants to play the flute in her school orchestra this year. She has no experience playing the flute so before her first class we decided that she should have private lessons before the start of the school year. At her very first lesson, Jessica Valiente was able to get her to produce a good sound from the flute. This is extremely difficult for beginning students to do. On the first day of orchestra my daughter was the only beginning student who could produce a sound, she was also the only one who knew the names of the different parts of the flute. I attribute this to Jessica's patience, ability to work with young students and her experience as a teacher and performer. I highly recommend her.

We contacted Aakash Mittal about clarinet lessons for our son after he gave a presentation at our son's 5th grade instrumental music class. We’re very glad we did. Our son improved quickly during the three years he took lessons from Aakash. He received music awards at Centennial Middle School, twice auditioned into CU Boulder’s Middle School Honor Band, made first clarinet at CU’s Middle School Band Camp, and auditioned into Boulder High’s Wind Ensemble. To cap his time with Aakash, he gave his own clarinet recital, including three duets with Aakash, as well as the 3rd movement of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto with piano accompaniment. More importantly, the process that led to these accomplishments was genuinely enjoyable. Our son started off with a half-hour lesson each week, and liked it so much that he quickly moved to an hour lesson. Aakash has an excellent teaching style. After our son played a piece, Aakash would ask what he thought went well, and what needed work. Aakash rarely had negative criticism and focused on what elements would improve a piece, and in getting students to honestly evaluate themselves. As our son gained skill and confidence, they got down to brass tacks more quickly—but still without him ever feeling guilty or chastised. Aakash’s primary instrument is the saxophone, but he thoroughly understands the clarinet. Lessons included instrument-specific tasks like fine pitch control, breathing, alternate fingerings, tonguing, and embouchure, as well as broader topics of playing exact rhythm, tempo changes, pitch, dynamics, and phrasing. Most importantly, he understands that, as time-consuming as these components are, they are ultimately “just” technical elements. After our son mastered them for a hard piece, they’d then work on exploiting them to play music that swoops and soars and comes from the heart. And though Aakash’s favorite style is pretty hyperactive jazz, he is comfortable with a wide range of musical styles. Our son played the MapleStory video game for years, and Aakash helped him learn transcriptions of several songs from the game. For one recital, our son found several Legend of Zelda transcriptions—evoking exclamations from other students like “We can play game music for a recital? I didn’t know that!” As our son’s taste gravitated toward classical music, Aakash was right there with him. Aakash was especially good at helping our son work on challenging pieces. Our son is always choosing music that seems a little (or sometimes, a lot) beyond his level. For example, the Mozart Clarinet Concerto is really a virtuoso recital piece. They took the 3rd movement one section at a time, sometimes playing very slowly to get the rhythms and notes right. Aakash had him try to play along with a full orchestra recording (where it was clear that playing at full tempo makes the piece exponentially more difficult.) Okay, that didn’t work, so they concentrated on getting it right at a slightly more relaxed tempo. Eventually, we brought in a friend of Aakash’s on piano, and the three of them worked on how to coordinate and figure out who was in charge of the rhythm. It made an exhilarating finale to our son’s solo recital. Aside from his skills as a teacher, Aakash is also quite practical. He knew that his own concert schedule affected his teaching schedule, so was good about trying to make up missed classes during the week, and was flexible when our own schedule interfered with lessons. We’re also impressed with his ambition—he knows that great musicians don’t sit around waiting to be “discovered”, but actively promote themselves and make things happen. We have seen him playing live with various people many times, and have enjoyed the variety of musical styles and partners. (Especially when he plays with electric violin. Hint, hint!) We enjoyed our three years with Aakash, and had mixed feelings about him leaving for India—happy for him, but sad that we were losing a great teacher. We can whole-heartedly recommend him for just about anything he’s trying to do.

I think Julie is an awesome teacher. I'm in my 20's and was looking for someone to teach me the saxophone. I was a total beginner, and Julie was so patient from the beginning. During each lesson, Julie taught me new things while enforcing the ideas she taught the previous lessons so that I would work on perfecting one skill while learning a new one, which encouraged me to continue practicing and working on the skills. Overall, I think Julie is a wonderful amd talented teacher that really knows how to teach each student on their own level, and I'm so grateful to have taken lessons with her.

Adrienne has been giving my daughter weekly piano lessons for almost 2 years now. She started teaching my daughter when she was 4 and now she is almost 6. Adrienne said when she first started teaching my daughter, that she was her youngest student. Kids are not always easy to relate to but Adrienne really has a special way of being nice and fun but a little bit strict when needed. Her lessons are multifaceted in the sense they don't just learn notes and play keys. There is the study of music, written activities, she even had my daughter write her own song and then play it back. Adrienne is always finding new ways to keep piano lesson fresh and fun. She is always finding new books for my daughter as her knowledge of piano grows. I think she is a wonderful teacher and my daughter would definitely agree :)

    Music lessons on saxophone, flute, clarinet, piano, and guitar. I focus on a blend of musicianship and facility. That means I teach self-expression and exploration (musicianship) within the context of scales, arpeggios, chords, and so on (facility). Lessons are largely based on playing, meaning there won't be excessive explanation.

    About

    Lessons: I offer private saxophone, clarinet, flute, music theory, jazz, and composition lessons to beginner, middle, and advanced students. I believe it is important to solidify the foundations of music so that the student can grow into a knowledgeable, expressive musician. My lessons are taught with a personal and energetic approach. I always want to make sure that the student is having fun, too! Learning an instrument is all about personal growth as a musician. As a teacher, I will help the student become a better musician week by week! Studio Equipment: I will provide a metronome, tuner, music stand and some music books/repertoire. Students may need to provide their own lesson books. Specialties: I specialize in jazz styles, doubling, and songwriting techniques.

    I've been teaching flute for over 10 years. I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of flute skills. Emphasis will be placed on performing the flute most naturally and using the least amount of effort, with a special attention to the basic principles of the Alexander Technique, which professional musicians use to perform. I offer a flute teaching studio in the Basking Ridge, NJ with individual students from all levels, beginner to advanced. In general, some lesson topics include: Why an excellent tone matters How to accurately interpret music How to improve technique (e.g. fingering, vibrato, tonguing, ) Why your breathing may be wrong, and tools for improvement Dr. Huei-Mei (May) Jhou presented workshops, clinics, and master classes, including: New Jersey All-State Band, the Minnesota All-State Band, International Music Camp, and private/public schools. Dr. Jhou has instructed flute workshops for the Minnesota Music Education Association and Minnesota Music Teacher Association regarding advanced flute performance techniques, including use of the breathing bag. Dr. Jhou was the winner the Marcel Moyse Society essay contest during the 42nd National Flute Association Convention in Chicago in 2014, and grant recipient of Music Teacher National Association in 2016. In addition, she adjudicated for New Jersey All-State Band auditions, for Upper Midwest Flute Association auditions, and Mid Atlantic Music Teachers Guild competitions. Besides teaching at Union County College, and Sussex County Community College, Dr. Huei-Mei (May) Jhou offers flute lessons in Basking Ridge, New Jersey at the NJ Academy of Music
