Francis is a great teacher with a strong foundation in music. He catches exactly what you want to achieve and directs the learning lessons accordingly incorporating musical foundations. The lessons are fun and educational and I improved with every lesson. I thoroughly enjoyed taking lessons with Francis. He’s a great pleasure and anyone interested in exploring jazz music should give him a shot. You really won’t be disappointed! 🎶🎵

Marcelo is a talented musician and knows a lot about music. My first lesson was great and I am looking forward to working with him to improve my piano playing and learn more music theory!

An excellent trial lesson. It’s my first piano lesson. I have some classes in music and midi, but I don't know how to play the piano very much. Meng helped me a lot.

I only did one lesson because I found another teacher who was much closer to me, but Yong was great! Really nice guy and clearly has a passion for music. I can't say much about how long term lessons are like but the lesson I had with him was great!

Noah is very knowledgable about piano and music in general. He's extremely easy to learn from, and he will cater lessons to accommodate where you want your piano playing to go!

straight from the first lesson, I could tell Dom was incredibly knowledgeable about music. He’s patient and understanding. I feel a lot more comfortable and feel like I’ve learned a lot more in just two lessons compared to other teachers I’ve tried out. I highly recommend Dom.

I have taken piano lessons from Robert for a few weeks now and my ability to read sheet music while I play, as well as understand music theory (big areas of weakness for me) have already improved significantly. He is a great instructor who understands what you need in order to become a better player, and he creates a fun and relaxed atmosphere that makes me look forward to my lesson each week. I would highly recommend Robert as a piano instructor!

Harry is our piano teacher for our 8 year old son. Our son absolutely adores Harry for his musical talents and charisma. Harry makes his lessons interesting by playing duet and using age-appropriate analogies. His lessons are lively and instructional. To motivate our son to play and practice was our biggest challenge. Harry manages this effortlessly. Now our son is practicing for his Royal School of Music piano level II exam. We highly recommend Harry.

I have to say Terrence is an excellent teacher of music. Very patient, and can make a beginner feel confident in his or her potential. I look forward to taking additional lessons. Thanks a lot Terrence!

I only took a few lessons with David because my commute is unfortunately a little too tough for me with my work schedule, but the time I got with him was invaluable. He's not only an amazing music teacher but also very patient and understanding about barriers that may arise. I hope to resume lessons with him down the line!

Oriana is amazing! Highly recommended for all levels of piano learning. She has been the best experience I have had yet for a music instructor. I can't wait until our next lesson together!

It’s never easy to pick your piano teacher, especially when you’re a beginner. David demonstrated a great deal of professionalism and patience in the first (trial) lesson. Before I met David, I already tried few teachers and was very uncertain about whether I should begin my piano journey or not. Not only is David experienced in performing but he’s also dedicated in teaching, and he’s passionate about finding the right method for each student. He’s a trustworthy teacher who’s relentless on sharing his own musical experiences and teaching his methodology in great details. How to relax your arms, how to put your weight while practicing, how to read music,(as a beginner) how to overcome obstacles physically and psychologically. Through his methods, I was able to approach music more efficiently. After very few lessons, I began to feel some improvement and stated to feel the joy in solving problems. And now I’m increasing my lessons from one-hour to two-hour per week. This is definitely the best musical decision I’ve made and I’d recommend David to anyone who’s interested in learning piano and music theory.

I have no experience playing piano, or any music at all (I am a 22 yr old adult). Marcel had me feeling comfortable reading music by the end of our first session. Very calm and patient. He is both a pianist and professor of music at a college, meaning he not only knows how to play well, but he also knows how to share his knowledge in an understandable way as well. Looking forward to my lessons with him over the next year+

My teenage son started taking lessons with Dom a few weeks ago. After sampling a few instructors, my son told me he prefers Don’s approach because, “His focus is on learning to read music, which is something I think will be important.” Although it’s been hard starting from scratch, my son always comes back from his lesson enthusiastic about playing. I recently accompanied him to a session and was inspired to take some lessons with Dom, myself!

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.

I am only two lessons in and I have learned a lot. I am new to singing and music. I was a bit embarrassed about my voice but Jana makes me feel comfortable. Looking forward to my future classes!

I signed up for a one-hour lesson with Ethan and it was absolutely wonderful. He is attentive, and came to my home for my lessons. I was a beginner, and I've really been improving. His style is totally holistic, and he will teach you music theory, and any style of guitar you want. The greatest part is that you don't even need to necessarily have a guitar, because he can bring one for you to borrow, or even have lessons for you in East Williamsburg. He's really friendly, really receptive and I totally recommend him.

Recently, I hired Anahid as my piano teacher via thumbtack.com. I appreciated her prompt, clear and direct reply to my inquiry for a piano teacher. Anahid is a friendly person and a talented pianist. I am an adult beginner who has only had lessons as a child. Through the lessons that I’ve had thus far with Anahid, I am realizing that I’m learning so much more than I had from my childhood piano teacher. I’m learning more than just how to read the notes – Anahid teaches me how to make the music sound beautiful and she shows me how I can read this information in the music. Additionally, Anahid understands that adults may be motivated by different musical choices than a child, which can make the lessons more satisfying. Anahid also offers a very flexible schedule which is perfect for an adult who works full time but also wants to learn piano. I am able to take lessons in the evening, sometimes even as late as 8:15pm, which allows me to leave the office without rushing to finish my work so I can get to my lesson and be calm and un-harried. This could even help provide an extra half hour of practice time just before the lesson, which is great! My lessons are conveniently located in midtown at her studio. Overall, I am very happy with my choice. I am looking forward to growing my piano skills with Anahid as my teacher.

David is very professional and friendly at teaching. In the first lesson he played out every masterpiece I named, and he played immediately after I said the name, which shows very high familiarity with music from different eras. Highly recommended.

Just had my first guitar lesson with Ryan and it went great! Thought he had a great balance between teaching me the technicalities while also incorporating the stylistic types of music we discussed that I wanted to learn. I am a beginner student and felt very comfortable with Ryan, he has a great personality and made my lesson both educational and fun! Looking forward to continue working with and learning from him. - Jess

In addition to being an outstanding guitarist, Joe is an excellent instructor. He is very quick to identify your skill level and areas that need to be developed to take you to the next level. He particularizes each lesson to accommodate you as you grow and makes each lesson fun. With his great communication skills, joy of teaching, and love of music, he is a very effective teacher. I would highly recommend Joe to anyone on a journey to becoming a great guitarist.

As an adult beginner piano player, I have found Ben to be an excellent teacher. His lessons combine music theory with exercises and popular songs, making the process interesting, challenging and fun. He is patient, reliable and encouraging and I enjoy working with him. I recommend him highly.

I learned to read music notations and rhythms with Dom in barely one month. His teaching method is perfect and he's a great musician, I mean really great. I look forward for every week's course. I highly recommend him and can't wait for the next lesson!

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.
