As an experienced performer I have plenty of advice to give on the various aspects and rigors of live performance including live sound, demeanor, crowd interaction, and preparation.

About VJ

Hello All! I am a guitarist/composer/educator who holds a M.A. Jazz Performance degree from the Aaron Copeland School of Music at Queens College. I also have a B.A. Music degree with a concentration in classical guitar performance from Buffalo State College in my hometown of Buffalo, NY. However, most of my training and experience comes from playing many different styles of music with many brilliant musicians on the scenes of Buffalo and New York. If there is just one thing I know about music, it is that playing music is supposed to be fun and satisfying! It is my job to help my students maintain that mindset as they navigate through the obstacles of musical growth. I am looking forward to teaching all of you, as well as learning from all of you myself. Now, lets make some ...

I started my lessons with Nick just one month. I know I am inquisitive, intense, overly involved and very detail oriented with my interests in general and I treat guitar the same way. I enjoy and immerse myself into it. I think Nick has a very broad knowledge of guitar playing and comes across as a very conscientious instructor in the way he handles my overachieving demands. I would surely recommend him.

Exceptional musician. Skilled and patient teacher.

I have been taking weekly guitar lessons with Nick for nearly four months now and it has been all I hoped for and more. As a recent retiree and amateur musician one of my goals is to rapidly improve my novice guitar skills. I was looking for a teacher who would push me hard but was willing to work with the particular songs and musical questions that I might bring to him each week. I could not be more pleased. Nick is able to immediately bring his knowledge and experience to any material that I bring to a lesson and he uses it as the basis for a wide range of teaching moments – whether it be technique, harmony, or improvisational approach. What I didn't anticipate was the extent to which his holistic, listening (and singing) based approach to playing an instrument has challenged me. Nick is making me a better musician not just a better guitar player. (And it is very helpful that he types out notes on all that we discuss and sends an email following each lesson.)

Mr. Nick R. is an absolutely great guitar player and music instructor. I'm a young professional jazz guitarist and instructor and have been taking jazz guitar lessons with Nick R. weekly since September of 2014. Every lesson, I receive a lot of information that I didn't know before and Nick always give me proper quantity and quality of task

Many ideas, information from his suggestions, including how to practice myself and instruction that goes beyond musical and guitar technique, also including psychological and philosophical concepts from Nick's experience and knowledge. His explanations are incredibly clear and easily to follow.

I've been playing guitar over 15 years. In my experience, it's very, very difficult to find a mentor like Nick R.

I truly appreciate meeting him and have tremendous respect for Professor R.

Thanks as always Nick!!

Learned so much with only one lesson a week!

Nino is a fabulous teacher. Her ability to teach and help my daughter understand classical music as well as appreciate it is amazing. Nino has a wonderful gift that she shares with her students. My daughter had two other piano teachers when she was younger but was able to learn with Nino. Nino has a lot of patience and stands behind her work. We are so thankful to Nino. My daughter loves playing piano so much that she is even thinking about majoring in it. Thank you Nino for being such a wonderful teacher!

Excellent teacher

I have been taking lessons with Niño for about 6 months.
Not only has it been a great learning experience but also a very enjoyable one. Each lesson is focused to my needs, technical and otherwise and I come away with a good feeling of accomplishment.
My piano playing is progressing and no doubt will continue to progress with Niño as my teacher. She is highly recommended.

Honest opinion on my lessons so far

Ms. Nino is an excellent teacher,she gives details on how to improve my technique and how to be one with the music,to play from the heart not from the sheet music .And to add on to that Ms. Nino shows me different techniques and skills i should work on every week so it's never robotic practice and by the end of every lessons something new is always learned.From my personal experience with her it has been great so far honestly.

Jason T. Cambria Heights, NY

I offer my students 3 recitals a year in some very nice halls around New York, where they would get a chance to perform their music in front of an audience of friends and family.

Performing is a great way to see as a student what you do well and what you can improve in. Each performance gains a level of experience that can not be gain by just playing for yourself. Through this experience you will learn what it takes to get better as a musician.

Concetta was such a treat to have in our home! She came out all the way from NY to NJ for my mothers birthday, and though she is a beginner, emerged from the 1 hour lesson so inspired to keep practicing, able to fully complete her first song! She even did a little performance at the end on the lesson! She is a great people person, fun to talk to, and she really knows her stuff. Excellent choice!

I have learned more in just three lessons with Concetta than I learned after three months of once a week lessons with an instructor from a music store.

Concetta has a natural gift to teach and an ability to allow even a musical novice, like me, understand basic music theory.

This talented young lady eat, sleeps and breathes music.

Mandolin · Online
Verified Student
When I met Concetta online, I had never played the Mandolin before. Now after 4 going on 5 months I am in the beginning stages of learning Vivaldi's Concerto for Mandolin. This feat was accomplished by Concetta's knowledge, understanding and compassion for this student who was clumsy, awkward and with little self confidence. I now know where I want to go with the Mandolin and with Concetta's guidance and wisdom, I know I will be given a strong foundation to achieve it. This has been the best experience for me and I know it will also be for you as well....:)
