Jessica D. New York, NY

Subjects Taught

Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Singing, Songwriting, Ukulele

About Me

About Jessica:

Jessica is known worldwide as a writer and musician who uses her own comedy, illustration, videos and crafts in her performances. She tours the US and the UK regularly and has performed in many festivals including the Reading & Leeds Festival, Latitude Festival, Montreal Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Dublin Comedy Festival, NY International Children’s Film Festival and more.

Jessica’s comedy and ideas are inspired by being the oldest of 6 girls and growing up in a small town in Maine, where she taught Sunday school and counseled teens and tweens in a local after school program for four years. When Jessica was 19, she moved to Philadelphia to study animation after winning a scholarship to the Art Institute of Philadelphia, and relocated to NYC shortly after graduating.

Her unique music, performances, art and internet videos have won many awards, garnered much praise, and have also been publicly denounced by the US Catholic League.

She has performed her music and written segments and songs for television (including ABC’s “Good Morning America”, MTV’s “I Bet You Will”, Fox News “Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld”, TBS’s “Saving Grace” website and “The Tyra Banks Show”), radio (including “The Opie and Anthony Radio Show”, BBC’s “Loose Ends Radio Programme” and BBC’s “The Simone Show” in the UK), feature films (including “What Would Jesus Buy?” directed by Morgan Spurlock), and stages across the US and the UK (including London’s prestigious Soho Theatre, NYC’s Irving Plaza, Joe’s Pub and The Bowery Ballroom as John Waters’ opening act, and LA’s Troubadour).

*** Lesson Details ***
Taking lessons with Jessica is fun and challenging. Jessica is like a cool aunt or a playful big sister who likes to have a good time but who also wants to teach you to play guitar or ukulele and sing, hopefully at the same time. Singing and playing at the same time can be really tricky. But with Jessica's laid back style and attention to your needs as a student, you will go as fast or as slow as is comfortable for you. Jessica works with classic rock and folk songs as your step ladder for learning. Jessica also can help you develop your own musical styles and teach you to write YOUR OWN SONGS from beginning to end if that is of interest to you.

*** Studio Equipment ***
amp, microphone, keyboard, guitar, ukulele, stands

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar and Ukulele. Students can borrow and rent instruments initially but must get their own, as soon as possible

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I teach classic stringed instruments such as acoustic / electric guitar and ukulele, and several unusual instruments such as singing saw and electronic and standard autoharp. I can also teach singing, songwriting and offer guidance on how to monetize your band, including acquiring sponsorships and arranging local and international tours. I have a very easy going style which consists of the two of us sitting one on one and starting with the basics, then moving on to learn others' songs (The Beatles or other classics are a good place to start) and then trying to compose our own songs, as well, if that is of interest.

Perry W. Teaneck, NJ

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Percussion, Piano, Songwriting, Ukulele, Upright Bass

About Me

Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma to a music-loving family, I began playing piano and guitar at a very young age. At age twelve, I began playing double bass, which has become my primary instrument. Throughout middle and high school, I received numerous awards for excellence in both jazz and classical music. After high school, I moved to the Oklahoma City area and had the opportunity to play with many of the great musicians who passed through, including Jon Faddis, Wynton Marsalis, Byron Stripling, and Anne Hampton Calloway.

Since moving to New York City, I have been fortunate enough to travel throughout the US, Canada, Caribbean, and Europe with such groups as Pete Robbins and Centric, Ryan Blotnick's Secret Mainstream, and The Paislies. Aside from my freelance work with various groups, I also play bass guitar in Brooklyn based rock band, Hungry Hands, as well as double bass in Karavika, an improvising chamber ensemble based on Indian folk melodies. As a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music and an active freelancer, I continue to search for new musical realms of expression within the context of improvisation.

Aside from a performing career, I enjoy sharing my diverse musical experiences with my students and helping them develop their creative abilities.

Subjects Taught

Banjo, Bass Guitar, Blues Guitar, Classical Guitar, Drum, Flamenco Guitar, Guitar, Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Ukulele, Upright Bass

About Me

Teaching music is my passion, it is more than just a career. I value each student and the time I have with them; helping them to explore the world of music. Hopefully after each lesson, my students walk away with a deeper understanding of music theory and have enjoyed their time. I am available to teach Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar, Bass, Upright Bass, Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin, and beginner Drums.

I am a husband and father. I teach all age ranges.

*** Lesson Details ***
I approach each lesson differently because every student is unique. During the initial lesson I will begin to assess the student's ability, determine the best teaching technique for them, and setup a practicing at home guideline. My job is to help the student reach their individual goals and support them along the way. I feel every student deserves to learn to read music and I will concentrate on this with them.

Lessons are taught in my personal music studio; it is a laid-back, family friendly environment. There may be specific books and supplies I recommend purchasing (these will enhance the success of a budding musician). I will most likely also hand out sheet music of songs to practice and may recommend certain artists within specific genres for the students to listen to and familiarize themselves with.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Classical/Flamenco guitar. I can teach many different styles such as Rock, Blues, Jazz, etc. I am always learning, and am willing to learn so that my students get the best experience they can get.

Matthew K. New York, NY

Subjects Taught

Guitar, Harmonica, Music Performance, Organ, Piano, Songwriting, Ukulele

About Me

I have been playing professionally for over 30 years and have taught for over 10. I am proficient on keyboards, guitar, bass, ukelele, as well as lead and harmony vocals and songwriting. My focus is on developing your musical intuition through ear training, and accessing the music within. I have a home recording studio to help with the learning process. I provide a fun, safe, non-critical environment where you can access your inner musician in the most enjoyable way possible.

Many of my students have gone onto become prolific songwriters and musicians and have recorded albums. Even beginners can learn quickly from my method which emphasizes techniques for keeping learning music fun.

My 10th CD was released last year on Sojourn Records and was featured as NPR song of the day. Over the years my music has received much critical acclaim as I have continued to tour the world. I have opened for legends such as David Bowie, Ron Sexsmith, Robyn Hitchcock, Morphine, Bob Mould, Freedy Johnston, among many others. I have produced over a dozen albums by other artists and songwriters, and composed for major motion pictures including last years film, WON’T BACK DOWN starring Maggie Gyllenhaal.

“In a career spanning more than 20 years, he has established himself as one of America's great under-the-radar songwriters. Had he emerged five decades back, he might have been a Tin Pan Alley stalwart, turning out intelligent, accessible songwriting with the clockwork genius of and Gary Goffin. His work is rife with the clever, incisive tunefulness that marked that era.”-- National Public Radio

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to discover or re-discover their love for music and and their own natural musical inclinations. Many students report an increased sense of joy and possibility in their own lives. Curriculum depends on level of student, but is focused on being able to play favorite songs, develop comfort and ease in playing style, and accessing creativity and originality in approach. After 3 to 6 months working with me, most students can feel comfortable calling themselves a musician!

*** Specialties ***
I teach mainly guitar, keyboards, ukelele, and voice from beginning up to intermediate. I try to incorporate songwriting into the process as i find that it speeds up the process and helps to encourage enthusiasm and a more focused effort and better results. I am fluent in most styles but come from a folk, rock, country, pop background. I also have a home studio and use recording techniques to develop style and vocal ability.
