I am looking forward to continuing music lessons with David. I met him for the first time this week. I know that he will be able to achieve my goals. I was looking for a teacher that specifically can teach sight singing. I am more than confident that I'll be sight singing very soon. David is obviously is genuinely passionate about teaching. It is a career for him not just something done here and there. I'm lucky to have met him.
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.
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!
Phenomenal musician, great teacher, cool cat - I rate David First INFINITY STARS. I've studied music here and there, but it wasn't until I started taking bass lessons with David a few years ago that it all came together for me. He explains music theory in a way I can understand and translate to actual practice that is not a chore, it is fun and addictive! Besides developing technical skill, Dave also helped me grow as a musician by getting over feeling awkward jamming with other people. I eventually felt comfortable enough to audition for bands and ended up in a fun one, playing out in the city even! David was there for my first gig, too. My husband was so impressed with my progress, he started guitar lessons last year and has come so far, it is amazing. We feel like Grasshoppers to David's Master Po. He is the best, ok I'll stop now, you get it.
I have never taken singing lessons before. With just a couple of lessons with Mara I have noticed a tremendous change in my vocals. I am able to reach notes that I did not know existed for me, I am in better control of my breathing, my phrasing is better and overall became more confident in my singing ability. Thanks Mara!
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!
Chris is a very talented player, and great teacher. Easy to talk to and he's eager to help me improve. The lessons are 100% customized to your skill level. I've been playing for over 15 years and he's taught me a ton so far.
Michelle is the piano teacher I wished for when I was a kid! Michelle is patient, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. One of the things my 7-year-old loves most about Michelle is that she lets her explore her musical creative side. Michelle has guided my daughter in composing her own music, tackling tough songs of her own choosing and in introducing instruments like the harmonica into her selections. Michelle is always upbeat and full of positive energy and as a result my daughter loves her music lessons.
Jimi is an amazing teacher. His versatility and depth of knowledge, not only of guitar, but of music theory make his style of instruction completely tailored to the interests of student. Jimi is a musician in his heart and his passion for music is tempered only by his intense humanity. There are no drills, there's no yelling. There's only an immersion in music and true scaffolding of skills. Additionally, you'll find yourself laughing and learning all the same in a way that breeds a true life long love of playing. My lessons with Jimi added a dimension to my life in knowing and understanding music that is truly like a 6th sense. He enablers me to shear the world in ways I never would have otherwise. Anyone would be well served to take lessons with him--or just to talk about music with him.
Francis is very professional. His piano lessons are very tailored and engaging. I would highly recommend.
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
My son describes every session with Steve as "Brilliant". His motivated and after six weeksof lessons is playing some great music. More importantly he hasn't touched his PlayStation. What a win. Thanks Steve.
Josh does an amazing job teaching my 8 year old son who started with piano lessons and recently added the electric bass. Josh's method of teaching encourages the kids to pick out fun, often current, songs and gradually build upon the basics. Because he likes the music, my son has made so much progress - he's excited to go to lessons and loves practicing at home (a big change from his previous lessons). We couldn't ask for a better experience.
I've been getting piano lessons for a few months now, and we just started working on voice as well. Dave is knowledgeable, patient, and really wonderful to work with.
Kino is really patient with me, and her space is really clean, bright and large, highly recommend her for piano lessons.
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
I have been taking piano lessons from Floris for the past few months. Floris is an amazing teacher with a very strong understanding of music. He is patient and very creative in the way he teaches. Working with him is a pleasure. He has amazing insights and working with him has helped me improve my skills quite a lot. I would highly recommend his lessons to anyone who wants to get better at playing the piano and have fun doing it!
Josh is quick to respond and easy to schedule lessons with. His lessons themselves are super efficient and he truly takes his students' goals into account to help design practice sessions for them that will get them playing quickly and well. He's knowledgeable and knows how to infuse some basic music theory into his teaching.
Dan was so flexible in arranging a "birthday gift" of guitar lessons for our daughter. Though the schedules haven't worked out yet for the lessons, my daughter is really looking forward to such. Friendly, and approachable man. A pleasure to deal with!
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!
I started taking piano lessons as an adult and found Gab Kallay's teaching style to be excellent. She explained things very simply and catered the lesson to me. I also learned some vocal technique which was real helpful. I would highly recommend.
