Harry has a great love of music and superb knowledge of viola, violin and piano. He's terrific at imparting theory during a lesson and always makes up the time if he arrives late or has to miss a lesson. He's cheerful and high-energy. Highly recommended.

I am fortunate to have found a dedicated and professional violin teacher for my two children. Miss Victoria has a great personality and is able to keep them focused and motivated. My daughter was especially taken immediately with her encouraging and supportive approach. Their hand position and technique are much improved since starting with Miss Victoria.

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.

My daughter has been taking violin lessons with David since she was 9 years old; and more recently, she has started classical, acoustic guitar lessons the summer before entering college. He is a dedicated professional and diligent in making sure his students learn correct technique and become more musical in their own personal way. More importantly, David has the ability to keep his lessons fun and varied! Her lessons have always been highlights of my daughter's week! I recommend David without hesitation.

I took 1 year violin lessons with JC Valenzuela. Its was joyful and I am very satisfied with her service. I learnt a lot and everyday I was looking forward to the next lesson .. Since she has a very especial and practical way of teaching violin. I would recommend this teacher to any one who really wants to learn how to play violin. Thank you very much dear teacher.

I was looking for a teacher who can teach beginner adult violin and I found a perfect teacher! I learned violin when I was a child so I did have prior exposure but I haven't played it for about 10 years so I didn't know where I stand or where I should start from. Tianyang also checked the condition of my violin (it was still in a playable condition thankfully). After the first lesson he could see exactly where I stand now and where I should start from. He is helping me to learn the right posture again and he's giving tons of tips as well. He is very patient and encouraging. He works well with adults but I am sure he'll be good at teaching children as well. I'm very glad to learn violin from him!

Avital has been my sons violin tutor for quite some time, and I couldn't be happier. He is a wonderful teacher and an expert violinist. He really knows how to deal with children (my son is 9), and is patient and gentle, while at the same time holding them to a real standard and encouraging them to be the best they can. He is a wonderful violin tutor and I highly recommend him!

I think Julie is an awesome teacher. I'm in my 20's and was looking for someone to teach me the saxophone. I was a total beginner, and Julie was so patient from the beginning. During each lesson, Julie taught me new things while enforcing the ideas she taught the previous lessons so that I would work on perfecting one skill while learning a new one, which encouraged me to continue practicing and working on the skills. Overall, I think Julie is a wonderful amd talented teacher that really knows how to teach each student on their own level, and I'm so grateful to have taken lessons with her.

Helene's Notes

I'm so glad I decided to work with Helene! I have wanted to learn to play violin since I was in the third grade and was denied the opportunity to do so as a child, so as an adult I decided to take matters in my own hands and take lessons. Helene is patient, knowledgeable, and encouraging and after three years at her urging I've joined a local orchestra in addition to continuing lessons with her! I've worked with her both in person and over Skype, and am glad she offers the video lesson option as I was away at school for two years and was still able to keep up with my lessons thanks to connecting online every week. The video lessons were just as high quality as the in-person lessons and I was able to advance to learning 5th position while I was away. If you're interested in learning violin. I highly recommend Helene.

Omer Ashano Music

    Verified review

    Omer loves music, the violin, and it shows. His youtube videos are smokin' and had me humming with joy. He puts a spin on the classical instrument in a way I had not known possible before...by playing jazz with it! It's just what a teenage boy needs to experience. My son has been playing since he was 5 years old and I felt that the traditional, classical instructors with their dated attitude just would not cut it at this juncture in his music career. With Omer teaching, I'm confident my latently, hesitant violinist will "produce" his own music with time. He goes away from some lessons whistling the piece. When Omer and my son jam, it's quite exciting. Omer is knowledgeable, modern, in tune with the young student, I believe because he was a young boy once too. He's absolutely what we are looking for in a contemporary instructor. And his jazz concerts are quite inspiring to see too. I hope my raving reviews won't take him away from my student but he's one of the best violinists in New York City presently.

    What I love the most about Johannes is the fact that he treats his beginner-intermediate students just like his music major students or those who are preparing to audition for conservatories or precolleges. I've studied with him for about 3 years so far. I had learned the violin for a couple of years before him but had no basic technique secured and struggled a lot with tone production and overall playing quality. He put equal amount of focus on basic posture and technique with me as he does with his more serious music major students. He's obviously slower-paced with repertoire than other violin teachers who make students play a lot of pieces very poorly in a short amount of time. But each piece and etude I work on with him sounds like what I have never imagined myself would be able to sound like before. Now I know where the bow should be placed with what arm positions and muscle movements for the best quality tone production, and how the left hand should be framed and driven for secure intonation and flexibility, all thanks to Johannes. As long as you practice just the way he asks you to (which often requires you to be incredibly slow and patient), he'd never ever give up on you and never let you play poorly for years with no noticeable improvement! At first I felt as though I wasn't learning much, because he didn't give me a lot of fun pieces I really wanted to play. But 6 months to a year later, I sounded completely different and was able to play some pieces with much better tone and volume. As long as he's in New York, I'll keep studying with him.

    I have taken lessons with Allison McNeal for about four years. We've gone through Suzuki books 4 to 7, as well as expanding into other violin literature. I never thought I'd be able to play this well! Thank you Allison!

      I've been taking violin and voice from Sarah for over a year now, and I have seen vast improvements! I love visiting her studio on the UWS, it's a beautiful space to learn. Sarah's ongoing experience as a professional opera singer and musician always informs our lessons. It's very inspiring! I highly recommend studying with Sarah!
