David did an excellent job at making me feel comfortable at my trial lesson as week. We went through my background, warm-ups, and some light singing. He didn't push me too far, and gauged where I was at in order to plan accordingly for future lessons. I have my first full lesson tomorrow morning, which I am very excited for!

I have not been working with Pamela for long, so ask me again in a couple of months and I'll probably change to 5 stars! So far I enjoy my lessons and the exercises we do have already expanded my range. My high E used to be just a squeak but now I can really sing it after only a few lessons, and I even feel more confident with my lower range - something that has always been a struggle. I look forward to seeing what is in store with her guidance. I fully recommend Miss Pamela!

Michelle is great with kids. Our 7-year old daughter loves her piano lessons and always looks forward to them. More important, we can hear that she is really learning and making great progress. Two of her school friends have started lessons with Michelle after we recommended her.

About

Even though I've only been working with Mr. Amorosa for two weeks now I can honestly say I'm happy that I switched vocal coaches. He takes his time to find where your vocal range lies on the piano. He makes singing infront of him extremely comfortable (coming from someone who hates singing infront of people) he works at a pace suitible for you and most of all he does not get annoyed if you can't manage out the note. In our lessons we play with notes where we would find little loops to add, what words should be exaggerated, the ashyness of the voice. I actually have a lot of fun. I do recommend him if your are seeking for a vocal coach! I'm glad I found him! Plus he's super cheap ! You can't go wrong !!

Christopher of NYC in home lessons prepared our 13 year old daughter for a successful and confident audition at LaGuardia high school. Christopher has a professional background and is focused, dependable, flexible and patient. She always looks forward to and enjoys her lessons and at the same time has improved her acoustic guitar and vocal style greatly in only one years time. What a great talent, we highly recommend NYC home lessons.

About

Christine is an honest professional. Her passion for music is as evident as her expertise. Without a doubt, I will be going back to her for lessons. I presented her with a challenge for sure. I needed to learn three contrasting pieces of music for an audition within a week. Man, oh man. Christine is definitely a miracle woman. She corrected a lot of my poor habits in technique, gave me lots of insight for future reference, and helped me gain my confidence as a vocalist. Needless to say, I learned all three pieces. Aside from her very obvious superiority in knowledge, she is just the sweetest woman. Very fun, friendly, and welcoming. She always made sure to offer me water or ask how I'm feeling about my progress. She made sure to give honest critique as well as solutions for enhancement. She also always made a point to emphasize my progress as means of encouragement. I 100% recommend Christine without hesitation, no matter what your level or experience with music is. You'll learn a lot for sure and you're getting an absolutely excellent experience for such a great price! As a full-time university student, of course that's something I always look out for. I'm so grateful that was able to get professional help on such short notice for a reasonable price per lesson. In short, the woman knows her stuff. Thanks for everything Christine, I'll surely be coming back to you!

Having worked with Alex over the past 5 months, I truly value him as a teacher and coach. He has the unique ability to facilitate a relaxed and educational environment. Not only is Alex a skilled pianist, his vocal knowledge has helped me trust my voice again in a more free and relaxed way. Alex provides performance time for his students and is more than willing to do what he can for our success. Personally, he has taken time to help me build my musical theatre repertoire and has helped me learn the ins and outs of the musical theatre circuit. I highly recommend Alex for voice (and piano) lessons. Not only is he good for a good laugh, he takes the time to get to know his students and work toward their individual goals.

About

Laura speaks fluent English without an accent and Spanish with the accent from Spain. Both of these characteristics I find helpful. 1. It is difficult and tiring to speak to someone whose accent in English is hard to understand, and 2. there are differences between European Spanish (Peninsular Spanish) which is Laura’s “ lingua materna” and the Spanish of the Americas. Unless you have plans to be in a particular part of Latin America, I think it is better to learn “castellano”, the Spanish spoken by 99% of the people in Spain. Laura also is fairly fluent in Catalan the second most spoken language in Spain (17%). As well as teaching Spanish, Laura also works translating, proof-reading and copy-editing Spanish to English (and visa versa) for business purposes so that the communications read right, so she not only teaches you to speak Spanish, but to read and write it well. So she is not just someone who speaks both languages, but someone who speaks both with style. Laura is from a middle-class academic family. She is young, cheerful and energetic, pleasant to be around, and very smart. The lessons always take their point of departure from something that interests you, in my case that is bird-watching. So she on her own initiative found and brought to the lessons several articles in El País, the Newspaper from Madrid, that had feature articles about birds. I was surprised to find how much more willing I was to puzzle over translating something in the bird article than some other texts. (Something that Google Translate was unable to do, by the way.) This is just one of the many initiative she has taken to bring Spanish home to me. She always appears with a laptop. She is very adept at finding all sorts of things of interest like derivations or conjugations and other resources. I also find her knowledge of grammar very useful, but I had grammar in junior high school, perhaps it's no longer taught. She is always encouraging and never critical, and surprises me with how accepting she is of my deplorable Spanish. What she does in my lessons suggests that she has done a lot of teaching and understands well the strategies for learning Spanish. It is basically, as I understand it, to start where I am and go in the direction I want to go in. I don’t think you can find a better teacher than Laura. Go for it!

Sean has been teaching me for more than seven months now. I am an returning adult pianist after many years off and had lessons for about a year in the past. What a difference! I learn something new at each lesson; Sean is patient and helps me solve problems that I encounter; he is very knowledgeable about music theory and its practical applications and is transferring some of that knowledge to me (I have a long way to go); he is flexible about choices of pieces that I want to learn; he has introduced me to a variety of exercises that resulted in real improvement; he has been extraordinarily tactful when I make dumb mistakes; he has helped me focus and not bite off more than I can chew (play). He is prompt. I am very happy that I found him. It is always risky when you seek out a professional so I am also relieved that this turned out much better than I could have expected.

I've now had two lessons with Hannah at the Pop Vocal Academy and I'm really loving it. I'm already starting to see improvement, and I'm having my third lesson tomorrow. She is very encouraging and supporting, and really knows what she is talking about. I've been taking classical lessons for years, and it's really something different taking pop lessons, but Hannah is definitely making it easier for me to make the most of my voice within the pop genre. I definitely recommend taking lessons with the Pop Vocal Academy.

Michael has been teaching my 10 year old son for almost a year. He is extremely kind and patient, my son has never once complained about having a lesson even if late in the day and looks forward to his time with Michael. We weren't sure if playing the sax was going to be a short-lived whim for my son but he seems to be really enjoying it, in large part due to Michael!

Josh is wonderful! His approach to teaching is stellar! He is patient, informative and excellent at finding what's keeping you stuck and helping you work through it. Every lesson something new is learned, which is built upon the last lesson and you leave him feeling empowered and excited to practice what you've learned. I can't believe how much I've improved in just a few months. I know it's becuase I'm inspired to do my best work and I'm supported with incredible materials that Jost provides for me so I can accomplish extremely productive practice in between lessons. Working with Josh is so much fun!

I really like my experience with Daan. He is definitely a good fit for me as a guitar teacher. He's incredibly knowledgable and has helped me set realistic goals to get the most of my practice time between lessons. I really appreciate that he knows how to push me to do better. On top of that, he's able to work with me on wide array of genres besides jazz. He's also been able to answer any question I have and has been very available by email. I'd definitely 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.

About

My daughter had the pleasure of taking voice lessons from Lucy Horton over the summer of 2014, in Bellevue, Washington. From the start, Lucy was well prepared and gave us thoughtful information to maximize our experience. I was impressed by her professionalism, and charmed by her ability to relate to both parent and teen. My daughter enjoyed learning many techniques of singing from this talented teacher, knowing that Lucy herself is a professional vocalist. I'm sure my daughter saw that Lucy's reality (creating a life around her passion for singing) could one day be the realization of her own dreams. Were it not for Lucy's move to the East Coast, we would continue with lessons indefinitely. Lucy is a lovely person to work with and we envy those who will now have that opportunity!

Lori Brand belongs to a rare breed of music teachers: She has the passion and biography of a consummate musician, and the patience, empathy and pedagogical sensibilities of a true teacher. No matter what your level of instruction, you can rest assured that if you take lessons with Lori, she will give you her all. Not only will her instruction help you to advance in your skill and acquire sound habits and techniques, but her approach will make you enjoy and (re)discover your love for playing music. I can only highly recommend her.

I knew I had chosen the best piano teacher for my daughter when she said, "I don't want to leave!! I want to come back for another lesson tomorrow!!". Tammy Ying is a gem. Not only is she an incredibly talented musician, it's also apparent that she is great with young children. My 6 year old daughter left her first lesson excited and anxious to practice. After only the third lesson, she was able to play a song with both hands, which makes her feel very accomplished! Tammy uses age appropriate piano books and takes the time to jump to specific song lessons to fit my daughter's skill level. Tammy is very easy to communicate with via text for a quick response which is invaluable for parents on the go – the timing of little ones to drop off/pick up... in my case a 6 year old and a 3 year old...(future student perhaps??). You will get everything you've hoped for in a piano teacher with Tammy!

I really enjoyed my voice lessons with Sebastian. If I had to boil it down to one thing that sets him apart, I’d say it’s his enthusiasm for the music: it was clear how excited he was to be sharing something he loves. This resulted in an inspiring and even spiritual experience, not a transactional relationship at all. The other thing he has going for him is that he is clearly an authority - he has a strong command of music theory and many different instruments - so I was very quickly able to relax and follow his instructions. I would strongly recommend Sebastian to anyone!

My Children taking lessons with Di for approximately 6 month and my twins who are 14 years old they both love him very much just like his part of the family in just a short time. he is so brilliant and so patience with them even when they miss a lessons due to fencing tournaments he make sure they get back on track like they never miss a lessons. It's always a pleasure to see him on every Friday's. The price that you pay for a lesson with Di it worth more than I what you pay for. I would refer Di to anyone who's is looking for a great piano teacher.

I was suggested by a friend to hire Dayramir as a piano teacher for my grandson who is 5. Dayramir is great because he knows how to teach to very young children. He grew up in Cuba, and the methods they have for teaching music and piano to children are very good. He also was a director of a music school in Cuba for many years so he has a lot of experience teaching. My grandson now loves the piano and is always happy when it's time for a lesson.

As an intermediate pianist I was specifically looking for a tutor (and practicing pianist) who could help me improve my technique and musicality equally. After one lesson with Daniel I realized that he absolutely fits the bill. Daniel is a concert pianist, he is enthusiastic and passionate about the piano, but more importantly a natural teacher. I learned a huge amount in the first lesson and am excited to continue working with him.
