I feel so lucky to find Amanda as my son's first piano teacher. She is great with kids and make my 3 year old boy fall in love with piano now through her great teaching skills and interesting "animal story books" designed specifically for young children to learn piano. It's been only 2 months since Ethan's first piano class with her, and he's already playing with both hands and a lot of kids songs like "twinkle twinkle little star", "London bridge is falling down", "old McDonald had a farm"...Thank you Amanda!

Piano
The piano teacher for a lifetime

Amanda is an amazing teacher. I went back to taking piano lessons at the age of 45 and Amanda has been an incredibly patient, generous, intelligent and warm teacher. She is very personable, extremely knowledgeable about music, and the lessons are individually tailored so that I get the most out of them. I have learned so much as her pupil and I am growing (slowly!) as a pianist. Amanda has made this process enjoyable, fulfilling, and yes...fun!

Ben G. New York, NY

About Ben

I am a native New Yorker who has been a professional, internationally performing, DJ for over 20 years. And I have been teaching other professional DJs almost as long. I am not a turntablist. I do not teach fancy scratching. I am a mix/blend DJ. I am very strong at teaching beginners and helping more advanced students to take their deejaying to the next level. I have a huge vinyl collection and I am primarily a vinyl DJ as a performer, but I am well-versed in all the DJ technology, from computer-based platforms, to CD-Js, to controllers. I do not offer lessons shorter than an hour because I think anything shorter is not long enough and does a disservice to the student. I charge more because you get your money's worth. I am happy to provide testimonials from past students.

DJing · In studio
I have been DJ-ing for about five years on CD-Js (disco, funk, boogie, Afro-Latin) and felt the need to step up my game and make a fresh start with vinyl. Thus, I bought the equipment and a sufficient amount of records and started practicing. However after a few months I realized that my progress was too slow and that I was missing the basics (vinyl is no joke). After hearing DJ Scribe perform on several occasions I was amazed at his musical selection and knocked out by his skill to blend complex tracks smoothly and yet in a novel, interesting way. Needless to say, I was delighted to learn that he takes students and subsequently had more than a handful of lessons with him.

I can only verify what Ben said about himself above. In addition i can say that he is extremely patient, flexible, didactically minded, thorough and attentive. It is not only his mastery over the instrument of choice (turntables) but also his record collection, detailed knowledge of music history and above all--a genuine love for music (especially the good ones)--which made these lessons a remarkable experience for me. At the end of each session, we would analyze my improvements and what needed improvement while Ben would give a list of things that I should be practicing for our next session. Already after the first lesson I felt a significant advancement in my skills and so was true for every subsequent one.
I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Ben is the most skillful, knowledgeable, and genuine DJ/Instructor I have ever had.
I was once his student myself and learned so much from his lessons.
He not only taught me both fundamental and essential Djing techniques but also helped me build my own musical repertoire.
Up until now, I continue to ask him for his advice and feedback. He is a great mentor who's always happy to help his students.

Worth every $. Take his lessons!
