About Brandon

I am a Rutgers University graduate with a B.A in Music Performance. I have played guitar for over 10 years, and currently perform all over the tri-state area as a solo acoustic performer and songwriter.

About Michael

Born and raised in New Jersey, I have been involved with music for many years. The instruments that I play include Trumpet, French Horn, Handbells, Organ, Voice, and Piano. I received my formal education at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA, which is where I earned a B.A. degree with Honors in Music. In order to obtain my Honors, I chose to develop elementary lessons on Chinese folk music. In my Junior year of college, I performed a dual media recital in both Voice and Piano, and for my Senior year recital, I focused on giving a Vocal performance. These recitals demonstrated the musical talent and techniques that I had developed throughout my experience at college. In addition to my musical experiences in college, I have also learned about various pedagogical approaches through both ...

My daughter and I have started taking piano lessons about 3 months back and we are happy to say that our experience learning with Mike has been excellent. He has so much experience which he is able to use to help out novices like us who are just starting to learn. His patience and good humor is what we need the most at this stage. He helps us relax and encourages us to try again and again until we get the hang of it. He sets the pace according to our pace of learning and this helps us stay positive and motivated.

We recommend Mike to all prospective students. I am sure everyone would benefit from lessons with him. We are sure to learn from him for a long time to come if we manage not to overcome his patience.

I've been taking piano lessons with Mike for 2 years. He introduced me to new types of music and was always looking for pieces he thought I would enjoy. I learned a great deal of technique and skills as well as music theory to help me in my musical future. I appreciate all the time you spent with me. Thank you for the past two years.

A well of ideas and suggestions

I've had a couple of lessons with Joseph, and the thing that struck me immediately was his enthusiasm. I had many things I wanted to learn, and he was eager to demonstrate different ways of approaching licks and such. We also started going into more theoretical things, like the melodic major scale, and also discussed modes.

I'm hoping to continue learning from Joseph, and would recommend him to students looking to improve their lead skills, as well as getting into music theory without the frustration you sometimes get from books on the subject.

About Inbal

Hello. my name is Inbal and I am very happy to introduce my self, hoping we get the chance to work together.

I am a musician. For many years I teach piano and music theory.
I enjoy it very much:) I love to share my knowledge.
Like the Sages said, the good teacher is he who studies from his students, so I always try to learn something from my students.
I've graduated the high academy for music in Jerusalem in 2010. I've also graduated MA in musicology at the Hebrew university in 2012. Beside playing classic music I love to improvise and sing, accompany myself and jam with other musicians.

My approach to teaching piano is that the piano is first of all the student's friend, and not just an instrument we try to master. From my experience, I find that every student ...

Inbal came to our home to teach our 7 and 9 year old boys. She was always reliable, consistent and very patient. She is so nice and perfect for teaching children. She sought out piano songs they would enjoy learning. Inbal would also send them video clips from the internet to engage them in interesting songs and expose them to multiple instruments. She's a gem.

I had studied classical piano for about 8 years as a child, but hadn't had a lesson in more than 50 years, and had only played very sporadically since then.

Inbal, in just a few lessons has given me a really start at getting back up to snuff.

About Shane

Hello! I'm Shane and I would love to be your voice teacher! I am committed to uncovering the true potential that each singer possesses as well as helping their awareness as a musician.

Regarding my private vocal and music theory students, I identify the individual needs and create a curriculum based on the the learning style of each student. Vocally, I include the following subjects with every student: relaxation, posture and alignment, breathing, phonation, support, registration, resonance, and articulation. It is extremely important that every student has a sense of achievement and success.

Studio Lessons: I currently have a studio that enables me to audio or video record each lesson. I also use a fully weighted electric piano for these lessons and have a music stand for ...

Singing · In studio
I am fairly new to singing, but Shane has helped me tremendously. I was unsure of what I actually wanted to do in voice lessons, but through his open communication and great teaching, he helped me find a path and I love to sing. He really shows an interest in you as a person as well as your voice. It is obvious that he is very well educated and experienced. I felt as though I could ask him anything and he would have the right answer. He is excellent at helping you develop your voice as well as how to use it in the most healthy efficient way possible. I would highly recommend him to everyone who is interested in voice lessons, either for pleasure or for a career path. I am thrilled with the work Shane has done for me just after a few lessons, and I can't wait for another.

Shane's knowledge of so many different styles of music allows him to cover a broad range of topics with students. This allows students to explore their love for music while he is able to guide them in the right direction. His extensive training and educational background gives him a vast knowledge of many musical styles, and allows him to specifically tailor each lesson to the individual students needs. Shane is an excellent voice teacher, and is able to help each person with what they need!

Jimmy is the best vocal teacher around. I call him my vocal coach because his teaching is more like coaching. He allows you to develop at your own pace. He does not rush you. His patience and diligence to help you develop your abilities as a singer demonstrates how much he cares for you to be your very best in a short period of time. His recording studio is state of the art in that you feel you are a professional singer recording your music. He is the best out there!

I've had lessons with Jimmy for a year. I didn't talk with him as much during our lessons in the beginning but soon, I was able to laugh and really start talking with him. As a teacher, Jimmy makes sure that you're comfortable learning with him from day 1. He slowly eases into the learning of music theory and how the guitar works. He makes sure that you stay interested while learning what's necessary about music. You can tell that he has a enormous passion for music, that he's even made mine evolve to the point where not only am I learning how to play the guitar, but singing as well! Having learned from him, I was able to stay relaxed and comfortable. He makes sure to understand the way you learn and uses it to help drive your passion to the right direction. Learning from him was one of the best choices I've made. And choosing him as your teacher will be one of the greatest experiences you'll have!

My 9 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Jimmy for about six months. She has learned a lot about the guitar in general, as well as music as a whole, and I love to hear her strumming away in her bedroom. Jimmy is a patient and kind teacher, he's very good with kids and my daughter looks forward to her lessons with him all week. I am astounded by how much she's learned in just six short months.
