As a choir conductor and church musician, I encountered all kinds vocal challenges from classical style to contemporary one. I'm very happy that Dr. Douglas is able to answer every question I brought to him. His experience and knowledge directly helped me toward my own breakthrough in vocal performance. I highly recommend Dr. Michael Douglas!

Extraordinary, perceptive instruction

Michael is my first and only voice teacher. I came to him because I wanted a more comfortable and confident singing experience. With kind and patient guidance, I am learning to sing like myself and not copy the performance of professional singers on each song. Michael coaxes your personal sound right out of you! I am finally free to sing like me.....
Sarah K. Glen Head, NY

About Sarah

Hi my name is Sarah. I have a passion for teaching students of all ages and abilities and I can help students achieve success while motivating them and generating significant interest in all aspects of musical enjoyment and appreciation.

Music education improves cognitive abilities and strenghtens the brains’ attention networks. It teaches students how to work in a collaborative environment which teaches them patience, how to think critically, make decisions and develop listening skills. Music making builds a sense of community.

By learning what background in music my students have and in determining what level of interest they have in the subject, I will show them I am truly interested in their development. These lessons will develop their talents and help them ...

I have known Sarah for ten years. As Associate Professor I have served as her instructor and mentor. As a former school principal K-12 I can honestly say I would hire Sarah in an instant. She is extremely knowledgeable and an excellent teacher. Perhaps most impressive about Sarah is her talent for identifying student challenges and developing lessons to overcome any weaknesses. She is also a teacher who is always optimistic---she is a wonderful motivator. On a personal level she is a young woman of the highest character and she has my highest recommendation.

I have worked with Sarah over the past year assisting her with the development of her music teaching business, and in particular as an editor for the website of her business, Eskay’s Music Lessons. In working with and mentoring Sarah, I have come to know her on both a personal and professional level. What is immediately obvious about Sarah is her love of music, and her desire to share this with as many people as possible through teaching. Sarah is developing her business so she may teach others to embrace their own musical talents as she has embraced her own. I have spent many hours with Sarah and have observed how dedicated and devoted she is to operating a successful business and ensuring all of her customers receive the best music instruction available. In my opinion, Sarah’s determination, work-ethic, patience, and enthusiasm towards music and her business goals will undoubtedly result in an exceptional business to match her exceptional musical talents.

Sarah is a very passionate and creative person when it comes to the arts. While student teaching with me, she was always professional. She was actively engaged in the learning process and worked hard at helping the students become successful musicians and learners. In the class, students would be presented with challenging material that gave them to space to get at a deeper level of music learning. They asked questions. They wanted to learn. As a teacher, she is calm and patient. She is capable of capturing the needs of students while using their interests in the lesson. She can relate to them and that is what makes her so easy to talk to. Sarah was greatly appreciated and respected by the students at school. She exposed them to new music and a encouraged them to listen and look at music differently. Working with Sarah was a great experience. She and I would bounce ideas around until we found exactly what would "click" with the students. She is not only a skilled and talented musician herself, but a teacher with the students' best interests at heart.

The Best Drum Teacher

Jason is a fantastic drum teacher. I would highly recommend his services. Jason is a professional, dedicated, great personality and caring person. He is the type of person after meeting him we felt like we have known him for years. He taught my son not just to play the drums but also to be a performer. My son would always come home excited after lessons. Jason makes it fun for my son to learn. Within a few months my son played at our school talent show and he gave the performance of his life! The drums helped build up my sons self- esteem. Jason offers a private drum lesson at an affordable price. We are extremely happy and would definitely recommend him to everyone.

Excellent.

After she presents all of the lesson material to me, Briana covers everything of each very thoroughly and calculatedly, she understands my needs as her student, and teaches me everything I need to learn in order to improve and more. I enjoy taking lessons with her.
