I've been taking saxophone lessons with Josh for about a month now and I've been very happy with the experience. I had never played before and Josh has been great about teaching me the basics at a good pace. He is very nice and professional. Definitely recommend!
I am taking absolute beginner lessons, which includes the ability to read music. I am learning both the instrument and how to read music at the same time and am enjoying my lessons. Michele is very patient and I feel she got me started on the right track - as I didnt have any experience with music.
Katherine is one of the most talented and hard working individuals I know. While performing orchestral and chamber music with her in Boston, I was inspired by her artistry and dedication to the music. Katherines caring and enthusiastic personality made collaborating with her an exciting and enjoyable event. Her flute solos in a recent performance of Dmitri Shostakovichs Symphony No.5 at The Juilliard School were breathtaking and virtuosic. Getting the chance to work with Katherine has been one of the highlights in my career and an opportunity I hope others will be able to have as well.
Laura has given me saxophone lessons for many years. I find her approach very helpful to me, and she also takes into consideration what I am working on. She gives me lessons on Skype or in person, and we play a lot during the lesson, utilizing the theme of the current lesson. For example, if I was working on a blues in every key, she would have me review the blues structure, then play the head and solo on it in a few keys. If she was demonstrating how to deal with two chord changes with common chord tones, she would have me play the tune with that in mind as I solo on it. Rhythmically we are working on Brazilian rhythms currently, so she is having me work on some bossas using the specific samba or bossa rhythm during my solo. I start with vocally doing the rhythm, and then do it on the sax using one note, and then do it with the chord scale, eventually doing a solo in the rhythm I am trying to master at the time.I take away a lot every time I have a lesson, and enjoy working on the assignments she gives me.
Highly recommend Jim - enthusiastic, knowledgable and patient teacher of the Saxophone. I am thoroughly enjoying my lessons.
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.

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.
Helene was my piano teacher from kindergarten through high school. She taught me how to read, understand, play and love music. Furthermore, my early -and in-depth- start with piano prepared me for years of trumpet in various advanced bands. Although I am not currently taking lessons, I still sit down to play piano whenever I get the chance. I'll play anything from Bach to Beethoven to Josh Groban to new and classic Disney - really anything I'm in the mood for. Helene's teaching has made me proficient enough in piano and music in general such that I can truly enjoy playing. Thanks Helene!!
I enjoyed my lessons with Mr. Dreyer. He's an amazing teacher. He was very patient with me and taught me a lot of techniques. Can't wait for my next lesson!
My students learn about performing all styles of music as well as developing the ear and learning musicality. Most score highly in NYSMA competitions.
My son and I are doing group lessons. He is special needs. She is the perfect teacher for him.... and me.
Jon is an AWESOME teacher!!! I can't believe how fast I am improving since starting lessons about 6 months ago. I got to a page in my book that I got stuck on with my old teacher. It took Jon 5 minutes to see what I was doing wrong, told me and then I could do it instantly! John is a really cool Australian who is always really nice and funny but he also holds me to high standards. I started saxophone two years ago for my middle school big band coz they needed anyone to fill the chair but now I practice every day or most of them anyway because I like it and want to be good for Jon. Jon is the man!
Hello! I'm attending at Mannes College of Music in flute performance. I have been performing in flute for many years. I teach students to enjoy and understand music! I hope to meet you soon.
I give my students support and encouragement as they learn all about music and musical styles. If they would like to, they have the opportunity to play in seasonal recitals and also at retirement communities.
I began my first flute lessons a few months after I picked up the flute to join my hometown’s middle school band program. Now, over thirteen years later, I can reflect and appreciate that it was incredibly helpful and instrumental to my development to take flute lessons with a specialized teacher outside of the band room setting. I have been lucky to have taught both privately in Fairfield County, Connecticut and publicly in the Ithaca City School District as a music graduate of Ithaca College, and I am delighted to be offering lessons in the New York City area. I provide a tailored approach to each and every child, adolescent, and adult. Everyone's first lesson is free! To schedule your first lesson and to inquire about rates and lesson policies, please contact me.
I offer flute lessons for all ages, levels, and styles of music. I am a classically trained flutist. I am a graduate of the Juilliard School. I perform throughout New York City as a freelance orchestral and chamber musician.
