Bernadette T. Lindenhurst, NY

About Bernadette

I am a NYS certified teacher who has been teaching in the school system for 20 years. I hold both my BM and MA degree in Music Education, and Jazz guitar was my major instrument in college.

Incorporated in my system of guitar training work in music reading, music theory, fretboard navigation, pick-control and fingerstyle techniques, and ear-training applicable to most contemporary styles of music.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons follow a structured format. I begin with technical exercises for both the picking/strumming hand and the fretting hand, leading to good sound production. As students learn to achieve well-balanced tones, they learn to apply that to the written page using standard music notation and the TAB system. From single notes, students learn to build harmony, ...

When the year started and I wanted to get serious playing guitar and becoming a better performer, singer, songwriter and just overall musician, I said to myself, "Where do I start?" To find someone of Bernadette's talent, quality, and patience has truly be amazing. She is great at setting up a practice structure and teaching theory as well as building up your skills and open to directing the lessons to exactly what you are looking for. My confidence on the guitar has grown by leaps and bounds and I looking forward to continuing the journey...5 stars!!!!!

Professional and Experienced Teacher

I've had 4 lessons so far with Bernadette. I am an adult and feel I am making great progress. The lessons are a good mix of learning to play the guitar, learning to read music and theory. She recommended a good beginner book and while we stick to it she tailors the material according to how I am doing and need to learn. She also makes notes and gives me additional work in a music notebook. The lessons are never rushed and because there isn't a student after me usually are 5-10 minutes over the 45 minutes.
I feel fortunate to have found someone with a Masters in music education and 20 years of teaching experience.
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.

Andre is a great instructor. I made progress over a couple of months. I really appreciate more about teach acoustic guitar and have a better sense of how I can create music in my own way such as in my classroom. I feel children learn through music so I am grateful that I got to learn so much from Andre. I hope to be able to take my guitar and play for my preschoolers someday.

He's passionate about what he does and that is portrayed in his instruction and style.

Andre has been playing with my group for about a year. He is reliable and highly knowledgeable. He is proficient both at his instrument (bass) and with his music theory. He is great to work with and I'm confident that students would learn a lot from him.
