Steve is a really great teacher! He takes into consideration what I want to learn and what my goals are. His lessons have a perfect balance between learning music theory and basic skills, and working on songs that I’ve always wanted to learn. I feel like I am making progress on the guitar and learning a lot from each lesson. Also, he is flexible with scheduling which has been really convenient for me! I highly recommend Steve as a teacher!
I'm really learning a lot with Viky. She has the fundamentals down and is able to teach them. I'm really enjoying the lessons
Josh is an awesome instructor! Everything we worked on was based off of what I wanted to learn. He sequenced everything so I could be challenged and have stuff to work on but wasn't overwhelmed. He really knows his stuff, teaching me the technique of how to pick properly and the basics of music theory. My soloing sounded way better after only a few sessions! Josh is a great person and is very knowledgable, I highly recommend him for all levels of guitar
Rae de la Cretaz is a magician! I walked into my first lesson with her seven short months ago, after many years of longing to take singing lessons and a year of procrastinating. She put me right at ease, and I got to experience her incredible store of knowledge, energy and outright passion for the human voice. When I came in, I had what I described as a "pleasant" voice, no better, no worse. I had been singing (mostly to myself) for my entire life, and for the last 18 years with a choir. The change in this short amount of time still surprises me. Sometimes when I sing during my lesson, I hardly recognize that it's me singing. There's a richness that I would have admired in others, but never thought would be possible for me. People whose opinions I respect have come forward and remarked favorably about my voice, something I didn't experience before. In the short time that I've been taking lessons with Rae, I've learned so much, and look forward to coming to each lesson. She is a treasure!
David has been great to work with. I came across him and a few other teachers on the internet and after meetings a few, I decided to hire him for my seven year old son who has been taking piano lessons for two years and still does parallel to guitar. In fact, I was so impressed by David that I decided to take guitar lessons myself. I had not taken any music classes at all in the past, but thanks to David's teaching abilities, professionalism and patience, I have made nice progress and am enjoying learning how to play the guitar. My son is also enjoying the lessons. I work in a demanding, fast-paced environment and do not have much time to practice as much as I should, but David is making the learning a real pleasure and I plan on taking lessons for years to come. David is an excellent teacher with a tremendous knowledge of music and very capable of customizing his approach based on the student's skill level. I highly recommend him.
Joyce has been teaching my son trumpet for 3 years. How do I appreciate her? Let me count the ways! - Son played trumpet in school band throughout middle school before starting lessons with Joyce. He strongly resisted learning to sight read all those years. Joyce had him (happily!) sight reading within the first few months. - Joyce helped my son correct some technique problems which were frustrating him. His progress was impressive, and he won a coveted spot in the area all-state band. - Joyce is open to working with music that her students enjoy. Jazz improvisation has become a staple of lessons that my son looks forward to, and solos in his school jazz band have flowed from this. - Whenever I listen in on lessons I always hear laughter. Even when my son is tired and grumpy before a lesson, he comes out of the lesson feeling great. -Joyce loves cats! Your cat will be treated like royalty whenever Joyce is around.
My daughter loved being instructed by Robin. For the first time she was excited about her piano lessons. She really progressed quickly and practiced often. Highly recommend Robin.
After years of being self-taught, I realized I wanted to take the next step and truly learn the instrument the right way. In just a month with Dom, it is clear that I chose the perfect teacher. His knowledge of guitar and experience in teaching has you learning to read sheet music and playing songs in just a few lessons. More importantly, Dom is encouraging and enthusiastic which inspires confidence in his students. He is patient, but continues to push you out of your comfort zone. It is clear that Dom cares deeply about the success of his students and I have developed a personal relationship that has me looking forward to the next lesson.
Michelle is not only a wonderful person she is a remarkable teacher. I sing with Michelle in the Schiller NJ Chorus and have private singing lessons with her. Not only is her voice glorious but her teaching style covers the many aspects of singing; anatomy, music theory, voice control/development and gentle informative critiques. She’s the best!
Maria is the most thorough, pleasant, and knowledgeable private music teacher I've ever taken lessons from. I leave each piano lesson with a more comprehensive understanding of notes, of rhythms, of musicality, but most importantly, of myself.
Mary is awesome! She has so much experience and knowledge, and you really feel in good hands working with her. Gives great feedback and I love lessons with her!
We hired James to play instrumental guitar for our momâs 100th birthday party. Franklyâ¦ he was great! On the day of the event he arrived on time, set up quickly, and got right to work. He played a wide variety of music throughout the afternoon including music from the 1940âs, exactly as we had requested. In addition to being a gifted musician, James was professional, competent and gracious to all of our guests. He was a pleasure to work with. James, thanks so much for a job well done!
His teaching is excellent , everything is broken down to my understanding and he is a friendly person. Literally love playing the guitar, Kevin is very comical and I enjoy the guitar lessons!
Rachel is instructing my 10 year old special needs child. She is patient and gentle with him and he adores her. I would recommend her highly.
We love working with Lou and his colleagues at U Music School. Our son started with Lou about two years ago and we have found Lou to be incredibly patient, encouraging and fun in all of our interactions. He is a remarkably talented musician and has a knack for reaching kids, ensuring they enjoy music and learn while laughing. Our son recently also started singing lessons at U Music and is loving that too! We are complete supporters of U Music and have a number of friends who have had similarly excellent experience with Lou and his fellow musicians! Thanks to all. The Salles Family
