I am fortunate to have found a dedicated and professional violin teacher for my two children. Miss Victoria has a great personality and is able to keep them focused and motivated. My daughter was especially taken immediately with her encouraging and supportive approach. Their hand position and technique are much improved since starting with Miss Victoria.
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!
Biljana has great passion and enthusiasm for the flute which inspires her students. What I appreciate most about her is how she connects with each student as an individual. She finds ways to motivate and engage each student. For example she lets my daughter play popular pieces rather than follow a strict classical curriculum which has made learning the flute more enjoyable for her.
I was very happy with Mrs. Petrucci's lessons. She was flexible to travel to my place, was always on time, with a good positive attitude and lots of new ideas each time to make me enjoy my learning music. Thank you!
"I’m problably the only sax student who took lessons from Norbert twenty-five years ago, and then again after a Master’s class he taught a few year’s ago in Berkley, Ca. Being a longtime amateur, I really appreciate that he really listens, and gives me information I can use to achieve my goals; a dream retirement, playing local clubs with my own jazz trio."
I had an excellent video lesson on Lessonface. Not only did I learn a lot about my instrument...I also received many tips and hints in improving my performance. I look forward to my next lesson which will be in the near future. All around I give it 5 stars.
Highly recommend Jim - enthusiastic, knowledgable and patient teacher of the Saxophone. I am thoroughly enjoying my lessons.
We contacted Aakash Mittal about clarinet lessons for our son after he gave a presentation at our son's 5th grade instrumental music class. Were 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 Boulders Middle School Honor Band, made first clarinet at CUs Middle School Band Camp, and auditioned into Boulder Highs 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 Mozarts 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 quicklybut still without him ever feeling guilty or chastised. Aakashs 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, theyd then work on exploiting them to play music that swoops and soars and comes from the heart. And though Aakashs 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 transcriptionsevoking exclamations from other students like We can play game music for a recital? I didnt know that! As our sons 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 didnt work, so they concentrated on getting it right at a slightly more relaxed tempo. Eventually, we brought in a friend of Aakashs 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 sons 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. Were also impressed with his ambitionhe knows that great musicians dont 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 Indiahappy for him, but sad that we were losing a great teacher. We can whole-heartedly recommend him for just about anything hes trying to do.
As an adult student of the flute I cannot recommend Daniel’s teaching more. I have studied with him for just under two years and my progress on the flute has been amazing. Our lessons are focused and fun and because of his knowledge and expertise I feel confident he is guiding me in the right direction. Having his studio in mid-town Manhattan has also been a plus for me as it has been convenient from where I live. He is also a very talented musician! I highly recommend Daniel
I'm so glad I decided to work with Helene! I have wanted to learn to play violin since I was in the third grade and was denied the opportunity to do so as a child, so as an adult I decided to take matters in my own hands and take lessons. Helene is patient, knowledgeable, and encouraging and after three years at her urging I've joined a local orchestra in addition to continuing lessons with her! I've worked with her both in person and over Skype, and am glad she offers the video lesson option as I was away at school for two years and was still able to keep up with my lessons thanks to connecting online every week. The video lessons were just as high quality as the in-person lessons and I was able to advance to learning 5th position while I was away. If you're interested in learning violin. I highly recommend Helene.
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.
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 daughter used to take flute lessons with Galyna. I wish she didn't move from Princeton, so my daughter could continue lessons with her. Galyna's kindness, engaging personality and desire to help a student grow as a musician were important factors which contributed to a positive and nurturing learning atmosphere. Her own performances were always inspirational. She is a great teacher, and I highly recommend her! Julia
My son and I are doing group lessons. He is special needs. She is the perfect teacher for him.... and me.
Suzanne has been my teacher (flute) for about 4 years. She has helped me develop my confidence, technique, and overall playing. She has helped me advance in more professional groups in NJYS and prepare me for the audition process. I extremely recommend her to any new or advanced player. Thank you so much Suzanne!!
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. Music is an accessible outlet for creativity, and I love being able to share it through performance and teaching. Every individual approaches music a different way, and I am committed to helping them achieve their best musical self.
