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.

I can't say enough good things about Barbara Wyton at Continuo. She matched my daughter with a Trumpet teacher that was perfect for her and my daughter is still taking lessons from him two years later. Home lessons have worked out very well for us. I recommend Continuo to everyone I know.

Barbara Wyton of Continuo Music is kind, knowledgeable and well-organized. She is communicative and sends out regular updates on our account and calendar status. We love the convenience of a home trumpet lesson, and the teacher is spectacular.

Tommy has been an amazing guitar, bass, and audio engineering teacher. Recently, we've been working together on some college auditions involving jazz bass, which I knew little of in terms of techniques and terminology. With Tommy's help, I've learned what would have taken me forever, and I feel a lot better about the audition process.

Tommy has been an excellent teacher. He mixes just the right amount of theory into the lessons when it is appropriate to explain what we are working on. He is also very personable and easy to work with. I can honestly say it was a great find when I found Tommy.

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 have referred Sky to several people who were looking for a guitar teacher. His students were pleased his ability to get them playing well fairly quickly. Sky was punctual for his lessons and quick to assess a starting point fro each depending on their level.

Been with NWMA for almost 5 years. Best thing that ever happened to my daughter. She takes Guitar, Violin, Piano and Voice lessons. More than just a music school, they have become extended family! Dedicated teachers, amazing recitals and more than reasonable prices. Wouldn't change a thing!

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.

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.

Steve's lessons offer a relaxed atmosphere and a flexible approach. He adapted his strategies to the things I was already doing and based the lessons on things I was interested in. Basic practice strategies and handwritten directions were provided at each lesson.

I worked with Lonnie for ten years, from when i began my studies in jazz piano at age 11 until I went to college at Berklee School of Music in Boston. We worked in all the different aspects of music, from jazz improvisation and interpretation, to how to play with ensembles, as well as orchestrating and arranging. I always admired Lonnie's willingness to work with me on what i wanted to work on. As a young musician my creativity was pretty boundless and it was hard to get me to learn music in a conventional way. Lonnie showed me how important it was to listen to music in order to learn. I received the right amount of motivation and guidance from my lessons with Lonnie to propel me into a life of musical work, as i currently make a living as a freelance composer in Los Angeles. I owe a lot to my teachings as a young musician and I heartily recommend Lonnie's services as a music instructor. I can be reached at 310 729 3866 or at dcharnis@gmail.com

My 13 year old daughter, Alessandra, has been taking guitar lessons with Larry Del Casale since Summer 2012, so a little more than 4 years. He integrates theory, technique, and passion together in a way that made her progress at an amazing rate. I think Larry is one of the reasons why my daughter loves and enjoys playing the guitar so much.

We have been privileged enough to have worked with Mr. Del Casale for the past nine year. He provided our son with individualized classical guitar instruction. Larry taught him to read, write and perfect his music. In addition he prepared him yearly for NYSSMA. We highly recommend his services.

I took guitar lessons for three years with Lou at U Music and the quality of instruction was incredible. Lou clearly knows what he's talking about when it comes to understanding the guitar. He provides a holistic and fun approach to learning the instrument, backed up by many years of experience as a musician and teacher. I would recommend him as a teacher to anyone from the earliest beginners to the most veteran guitar players. I'm also pleased to say that every one of the instructors at U Music is friendly and easy to talk to. I took voice lessons with Ann (which were also fun and helpful), and I've had numerous chats about music and other things with both Greg the bass teacher and Nick the drum instructor. Great people, great instruction in my experience, and altogether a great place to learn about the wonderful world of music.

As an adult taking up the guitar can be a humbling experience. However based on Lou Ubrianco's stellar reputation and experience I started taking lessons and was very impressed with the learning experience. Later I decided to move south and I knew the one thing I would miss was my guitar lessons. Since then I've had 3 different instructors and none of them were at the level as Lou. I would recommend U Music for students of all ages and levels of playing. Also for different styles of music as I was into Country Music at the time. Being as honest as I can, although I have no personal lesson experience with the other instructors I know that they would have to excel at their profession or they would not be at U Music. I would highly recommend lessons for all at U Music!

Thomas is an incredible teacher! He is very good in identifying my skill level and he quickly adjusted the curriculum / lessons based on my limitation, style, and preferences. I have learned so much from just a few sessions. His degree from Berklee provides such a strong theoretical basis but packaged in an easy-to-understand & enjoyable lessons. I would definitely recommend Thomas to my all friends.

Very cool! James is one of the nicest guys I've come across in a long time. My experience thus far has been great, learned the basics very fast with James' different methods. Just recently got to do a little recording during our last couple lessons and now I have a CD with me playing that I get to show off (feel a little bit like a rockstar! haha) Great teacher!
