I would highly recommend Dave Robles for guitar lessons. He taught two of my daughters, from age 6 to age 12. He is both a professional educator and musician. He builds a rapport with the kids, and keeps them interested by letting them have input into the kind of music they're learning. He is reliable and organized, and provided a tabbed binder with sections for notes, theory and music. I recommended Dave to the after school enrichment program at our elementary school because he did such a good job teaching my girls, and I would highly recommend him for all ages.

Guitar lessons can be boring, but not with Steve. Steve's guitar playing its Eddie Van Halen's level and best of all is that he is very humble and a funny teacher. He will take his time to explain you note by note on the entire fretboard. I always have fun learning new scales, arpeggios, triads etc. with Steve. You will actually get exited every time a guitar lesson with him is coming up. A guitar instructor that actually knows how to play pretty much anything on guitar, but if you are into Rock, Classic Rock, Hard Rock, Metal, Jazz and Jazz Fusion, you should definitely take guitar lessons with Steve. - Winston Beast Master (Khiazma band)

Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.

Eugene’s Music Studio is one of the most professional & kind music studios we had the honor to work with. My son is so excited and cannot wait for his piano lessons. The teacher was able to keep him busy and involved throughout the entire session (not an easy task) and she always comes up with new ways for him to stay involved. We are very happy that we found Eugene's Music Studio. Eugene was very attuned and helped us find the best fit for our child and we look forward to seeing the progress he will make with time.

Thoroughly enjoying my lessons with Tom! Sometimes, they are free-flow; sometimes, they are focused. He has a good idea of how much to give me to work on each week, and the structure of the lessons works well.

I couldn't be happier with Miss Niki and Rhythmz. My son has come so far in just one year. Niki is great and has really nurtured my son's love of piano. I love the convenience of lessons in my home. Like I said, I couldn't be happier.

We hired James to play instrumental guitar for our mom’s 100th birthday party. Frankly… 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 1940’s, 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!

Rob is an excellent instructor and takes a personal interest in honing both your technical skills and your understanding and appreciation of what transforms a sequence of notes and chords into music. In addition to lessons, Rob is extremely generous with his time and goes out of his way to organize jams that allow students to learn to play in a band setting.

I have been taking lessons with Christina for over a year now and I can't believe the difference in not only my voice, but my confidence! Because of my training, I have been cast in such roles as the Stepmother in "Into the Woods", Madame Thernadier in "Les Miserables", Woman in "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change" and Mayor Matilda Hyde in "All Shook Up" to name a few. My daughter has also been taking lessons and as a result was cast as Twin 1 in "Peter Pan" at a 1700 seat theatre! I never knew how to use the different parts of my voice. Christina helped the different parts of my voice come together as one instrument and helped me create the sound that is uniquely mine. I can't thank her enough!

About

I specialize in teaching young children to early teens.

About

I've been teaching guitar for seven years to students of all ages, skill levels and backgrounds. I teach technique, songs, theory, chords, note reading, songwriting, soloing and everything else related to the guitar. I normally charge $35/hour, but may charge more if I have to travel a significant distance, or sometimes charge less if you have to travel a long distance. I also have been tutoring high school students in earth science for three years. I will be graduating this May with a BS in Geology and Environmental Science from SUNY New Paltz. I have 4.5 years of experience working with teens as a youth counselor and a lot of experience tutoring earth science both to college students and high school students. I offer the first lesson for free for either of my services, so you can make sure you are satisfied with the lessons before having to spend your money. Feel free to email me with any questions.

About

Become a working bass player. Most people take up bass guitar because they want to jam with friends and maybe start a band. As a working professional for over 35 years, I will get you started on the track to quick fun and success. Start playing songs you enjoy. Learn the proper technique. Some music theory is a must and is incorporated.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
