I took piano lessons as a kid and vocal lessons through middle school and high school in a small rural town two hours from Pittsburgh. After a year of feeling a little lonely in a new city by myself I decided I wanted to take a piano and singing lesson once a week just for something to do and to keep myself "in singing shape". I found thumbtack, answered all the questions, and waited for emails from music teachers to come through. The next day I had multiple responses but Rossi Music Studio was the first I opened up and I called immediately after reading it. Even though I was very excited, I never saw myself driving a little over an hour three days a week to work with Joe a few hours a day. I never thought I could find so much amazing talent in one place, even the 7 and 8 year olds have incredible singing voices. Rossi Music Studio's curriculum is so cutting-edge that I can't believe how much I've grown in the short period of time in range, vocal agility, and tone. After a month I don't even recognize my voice and I am realizing what an awesome future I have to look forward to. Pittsburgh is very lucky to have Smokin' Joe and his amazing talent. He genuinely wants the best for each student and puts all of his heart into each lesson. He brings out THE BEST and more in each of his students.
I'm happy I decided to start taking guitar lessons. The teacher is friendly, very knowledgeable, and patient. I feel like I've learned a lot and I look forward to learning more. Lessons are reasonably priced and I feel like I'm getting my money's worth.
I am enjoying my guitar lessons with George. George is a very talented guitar player and a great teacher. I feel like I am learning a lot which is making practicing enjoyable.
I have taken guitar lessons from Scott Elliott off and on for 38 years. Scott is an excellent teacher. I came away from each lesson with information and techniques that would keep me busy for years. I highly recommend Scott as a teacher of Guitar, I recently took classical lessons from Scott and it was very intense. Scott pays close attention to details, from striking the string properly to holding the instrument and everything that comes after that. He was always very accomidating with the schedule and was able to help me immensly. The atmosphere of his teaching studio was very comfortable and pleasant. I highly recommend studying with Scott if you are serious about learning the proper way to play a guitar. I have taken lessons from several other teachers, but after studying with Scott, I felt that other teachers were wasting my time, or that I was showing them different techniques. I really can't say enough good things about Scott and his guitar and teaching abilities.
I am an adult learner who had piano lessons as a child, and want to get more proficient playing the piano. Dale is wonderful. He assessed my abilities and began teaching. He is patient, understanding and very personable.
We love Jean and New Song. My daughter is 8 and just starting singing lessons and Jean has been wonderful. I can't say enough good things about her and about the school. It's fun and casual but my daughter is learning a lot. Perfect!
I'm an aspiring singer and I want to accompany myself on piano. I had lessons when I was in grade school but only learned how to read. Those things didn't translate to the real world but I found Dan's ad and my life changed. I know what to do now. I can play chords, walk a bass line and I'm learning how to improvise. My mom is really amazed by the transformation. If you really want to learn how to play piano, you can't go wrong with Dan.
My experience working with Extreme Vocal Experience and Jennifer Harris has absolutely AMAZING!!! I have always wanted to become a famous singer when I grow up so I began taking lessons with Jennifer Harris in March of 2013! Jennifer is an amazing vocal coach! She has taught me how to perform properly on stage; and do a lot of unique things with my voice. The lesson each week will be the most fun you will ever. Jen will not only be your coach she will also become like your friend. Whenever Jen thinks you need to improve something she doesn't only tell you what you should work on, but she gives you ideas on how you could improve. If you take lessons through Jen and Extreme Vocal Experience you will be greatly impressed with the result!
My son has learned so much in the last year taking piano lessons from Ms Andrea. She is very patient and knowledgeable. She is an excellent teacher. She has her students participate in a few recitals a year and even uses board games, that she has created, to help the younger students achieve their goals. I would recommend Ms Andrea.
Ada is very professional, knowledgeable and good with kids (i.e. patient and fun). My 5 year old takes weekly lessons from her, and in 6 months she has made great progress. Ada is great at making the most of the time in lessons to hammer out issues, and help me as a parent work with my child. She is a great teacher, and knows how to hone in on what needs improvement. She communicates very well to my child, using lots of different teaching techniques to help my child learn. If you are looking to give your child a classical foundation in piano, I highly recommend her.
my 16 year old son is taking guitar lessons with Stacy. Stacy is very easy to work with and was very prompt in contacting us when we were looking for a guitar teacher.
Mr. James is the best piano teacher!! He is wonderful with kids. My four year old son loves him and is currently thriving during the first few months of beginner piano lessons. Im so happy with his progress thus far! Mr. James is very professional and you can tell he loves what he does. I highly recommend!!
Mark Lucas is a fantastic teacher. He sends me home each week with something new under my belt that immediately helps me in my playing. I highly recommend NStuff for music lessons!
Great environment to make music.
On time, personable, knowledgeable
Morgan is a great instructor. His passion for music shows in his teaching. He is personable and professional. He has an extensive music background and an awesome ear for music. I like that he focuses on your playing technique, scales, and sight reading inclusively within my piano lesson. I also appreciate him being flexible in his schedule due to my work. I look forward to further lessons with him as I continue to improve.
I honestly couldn't be happier. The individual instruction is so amazing. There are group sessions once a month that are beneficial for performers. My son is so motivated now! The teacher lets me sit in on the lessons and I'm so impressed!
Professional and friendly; my 7 yr old daughter was very happy after her first lesson
Working with John has been great! He is very accomodating to my schedule and is extremely knowledgable. I started out learning hand placement, chords and reading music, and now we are starting to put that together and play songs. He bases his lessons off of what you would like to learn and what kind of music you are interested in. I'm so happy I chose John, don't miss out on the opportunity to work with him!

Lessons available are flute (beginner to advanced), piano (beginner to intermediate), and violin (beginner). I hold a degree in music performance from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
