Learn to make music with your pencil! This focuses on the brains behind the sound.

About Gregory

As a younger brother at the age of five, I began studying the piano because my older sister did. After my foundation in music strengthened I fell in love with the trumpet. At first, each note took time to develop and I enjoyed the challenge. The trumpet allowed me to travel all over the Southeast later in life and even to China with a 1940's Radio Show. I enjoyed many top-level bands the kindled my love and passion for good music. I want to share that kindling with my students in a nurturing and guiding situation, just like my teachers gave me.
I used to go to lessons and become so motivated and inspired that I thought I could change the world. I always knew that I would want to give back exactly that. As my performance opportunities grew into venues like Churchill ...

Marco O. Sunnyside, NY

Studied music theory on the advanced level having obtained a MA in Music Composition.

About Marco

I started playing guitar seriously at the age of 12 and have been a guitar teacher for 22 years. My first influences were rock and metal. In my later teens, I became very interested in other music genres such as jazz, fusion and classical. I began my formal music education as a Classical Guitar performance major, ultimately obtaining a Masters Degree in Music Composition from the Queens College Aaron Copland School of Music.

The road I have taken with music has been paved with many unexpected twists and turns. Throughout my many years of learning and making new discoveries, I have now arrived at a point where I am able to productively incorporate knowledge from various experiences with music and education into my own creativity and teaching. I never expect to stop learning or ...

Marco is one of the best teacher ever, I knew him way back in 1997 when I first came in to the state. At first, one of my friend was taking the session and he didn't mind me just staying and observed. After a few classes, I decided to go with Marco. As a new immigrant, language barrier is a problem. He 's patiently teach me from a to z. Making sure I understand everything. Although, I knew some of the basic of the guitar. I was surprisingly I could learn how to read music. Be able to improvise with him during lesson. You're not just learning how to play song/guitar. You learn music theory all in a packet. I still remember one day I was playing in the local shop in HK, people was whispering this guy is good. This is a good memory that I have until now.

I was a student of Marco's for about two-almost three years, and his excitement, love, desire, wisdom and passion for music and teaching is something that can't be described in words. Marco is a teacher that likes to have fun with whatever it is he may be teaching, but he is also very serious about it to make sure his students learn what they want in the best way possible to them. He will encourage his students if they need it and congratulate you every time you complete whatever it is you may have learned from him. I mostly learned techniques/songs from artist's such as Randy Rhoads, Angus Young, and much more from Marco. He will not let you down. He won't give up on you. I would gladly learn from him any time /any chance I'd get.

Marco has been teaching my son how to play the guitar since 2008. I feel that we were blessed having Marco as my son's first teacher. He really understood him and I was brought to tears at his very first recital when I was amazed how much he had learned in just a short few months. He is a senior in HS now and he has a love for the guitar and a passion to learn new music on his own.
Marco is an exceptional teacher who is very patient and understands his students and listens to their needs. He is extremely talented and anyone would be very lucky to have him as their music instructor. I recommend him highly. He is the best!
Dr. Daniel C. New York, NY

My minor is in music theory and I have had considerable experience teaching theory one-to-one. We will discuss the rudiments of musical theory (key/time signature, note values, figured bass, etc.) all the way, if you're so inclined, to 12-tone series and complex harmonies.

About Dr. Daniel

Dr. C. was most recently described by Tim Page with the Washington Post as a “funny, exuberant and enormously likable” Papageno during Summer Opera Theater’s performance of The Magic Flute. Previously, the Post critiqued Daniel in Opera Theatre of Northern Virginia’s Barber of Seville as a “bright and bouncy” Figaro who delivered his lines with “aplomb.” Daniel has performed as a young artist in the Studio Programs of El Paso Opera, Kentucky Opera and Portland Opera. He has sung the roles of Sharpless in Madama Butterfly, Sid in Albert Herring, Figaro in The Marriage of Figaro, Belcore in L’elisir d’amore, Jupiter in Orphée aux enfers, Dr. Falke in Die Fledermaus, Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Masetto in Don ...

Dan is a very gifted teacher, and a wonderful person. He is intelligent, super punctual, and has a flair for explaining the most intricate details of music and voicing in a way that a 5 year old can easily understand.

He encourages you to sing in the proper way, and break out of bad habits at an early stage. If you are looking for an awesome music teacher, look no further!!

Dan is extremely knowledgeable, patient, focused and funny! A singer my whole life, but mostly untrained, Dan helped me to get back to my passion by asking good questions upfront about my goals and using lessons to strengthen / expand MY voice (rather than shaping it into something else). Unlike any other coach I've seen, Dan actually keeps track of my progress by taking notes and actively revisiting them. He's great and I'm looking forward to continuing our work.

Daniel is a wonderful instructor. I had not sung opera for over 10 years, and felt very unsure about trying it again. In just 8 weeks of lessons with Daniel, my voice has gotten stronger and richer through his guidance. As an instructor, he is very patient and understanding, while still pushing to get the best possible sound. When describing vocal techniques, he can explain them in many different ways in case it’s not clear on the first try. Daniel has also always been a reliable communicator and is flexible with his schedule.
I have left every lesson with Daniel feeling more confident and I am always looking forward to the next one!

Jim T. New York, NY

Some musicians love the study of music theory and some dread it. I believe the knowledge of intervals, scales, chords, rhythms, structure, instrumentation, and compositional technique is a powerful tool for opening up one's musical potential. Composers, arrangers, performers, engineers, and dancers all benefit from a deep understanding of musical language. We develop this understanding through ear training, technical and creative exercises, and analysis of great music, and we focus our study on those areas most relevant to the students interests. I taught advanced placement and beginning theory classes at the high school level for 12 years, wrote a textbook on the subject. Some of my students could not read music when they started and were prepared for collegiate music study by the end of the year. Some came to the class with knowledge of the subject, found new challenges they had never experienced through our studies, and went on to study composition at top tier music schools. I look ...

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....:)
