Jessica is upbeat and articulate! Her teaching space has an inviting vibe and is full of useful musical resources. I have previous experience playing other instruments, and Jessica was quickly able to craft a game plan to get me started with guitar technique and finger patterns in a very efficient manner. I would highly recommend her to prospective students of all ages and experience levels!

I can sum up my opinion of Ian in one word, WONDERFUL !! I started piano lesson as a way to help me get thru the grieving process because I had just lost my husband. Ian is a very caring and understanding human being. His patience is amazing! In just 2 months, with his instruction, I was not only able to play basic tunes on the piano, BUT, I wrote a song. Pretty cool !! :)

Zhana G. New York, NY

About Zhana

I have been a freelance violinist and a professional violin teacher for the past 30 years. Playing in the orchestra and teaching students are two of my greatest passions in life. As a private violin instructor, I firmly believe that education is impossible without student motivation and passion. As much as I love teaching, my best experience is also learning from my students. Education - received in the Republic of Georgia (Eastern Europe) - Tbilisi State Music Academy - 7 year degree in Violin/Piano performance. - Tbilisi State College of Music and Arts - Bachelor's Degree in Violin Performance. - Tbilisi State Music Conservatory - Master's Degree in Violin Performance. I am very fortunate to love teaching because it allows me to share my knowledge and incredible ...

Zhana combines very well the two elements that are essential for a good teacher in any field: strictness and high expectations on the one hand coupled with kindness and encouragement on the other. I have only had six weeks of lessons with her so far, but I have already learned a lot and can compare her favorably with other instructors.

About Erika

My name is Erika and music has always been an essential part of my life! As soon as the cliche dream of becoming an astronaut was out of my mind, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in music- my dream was to become a professional pit orchestra musician on Broadway. I attended Ithaca College and received my bachelors degree in music education and saxophone performance, where I quickly learned that I enjoyed teaching as much as performing! I loved conducting high school band and teaching private and group instrumental lessons. I was a member of the pit orchestra in several collegiate and professional musical productions, as well as the alto saxophone player of Zephyr Saxophone Quartet. In my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors, playing ping pong, taking pictures and exploring new ...

I learned saxophone for a year back in 2007 and haven't played since. I was looking for someone who can get me started again after such a long gap. Over the past month Erika has been helping me get back and move forward. I find Erika to be knowledgeable, patient and keeps things at a lively pace without stagnation. She also made corrections to my embouchure, breath support and reeds, which seem to be improving my playing. So thanks to Erika. I look forward to continue learning and hope this first hand information helps anyone in search of a good saxophone teacher in and around Jersey City.

About Justin

Can you rely on your voice to always be there for you? After singing, does your throat hurt? Do you want to learn how to belt? Can you let it rip when no one’s watching but you choke up when you step in front of a microphone? Do you want to learn vocal technique that just works? We welcome all levels of experience and styles of voice. Become the singer you were meant to be “Justin is so much fun to work with and always makes me feel good about performing, even when I get discouraged. He has helped me to discover a side of my voice that I didn't even know I had.” - Debbie Lingel “For the last 5 years, I've experienced pain and major vocal fatigue, which lead me to stop singing almost completely… After just a few weeks, I noticed a vast difference. I found Justin to be very ...

Classical Voice · In studio
I went to Rutgers: Mason Gross School of the Arts for Vocal Performance as a freshman in Fall 2008; by the Spring of 2009, I was no longer a music student. Singing quickly became a laborious activity instead of an enjoyable past time; I felt as if I became incapable of adequately expressing myself because I was bogged down by a pretentious atmosphere and a teacher who lacked any sort of gravitational pull. Justin is the complete opposite.

I started studying with Justin in September 2013. He's so incredibly realistic. He lacks any form of pretense and his personality is so magnetic. Every time I walk into my lesson, I'm ready to go. He creates an atmosphere that is just so easy to adjust to, and he listens. I'm so grateful to have found him. In a little less than a year, he's helped me restore confidence in my vocal ability and gain back years of lost discipline in such a short time. He will hold you accountable without alienating you and for me that's invaluable. If you're looking for someone warm, but disciplined, Justin is your guy.

Working with Justin has helped me make enormous strides musically! Our lessons have transformed my voice, prepared me for the competitive world of singing, and given me the confidence and knowledge needed to succeed. In just one or two lessons I progressed in ways I never thought I could and opened up to different techniques that I did not even know existed. Justin is fun and easy to work with. His encouragement and spirit will push you to reach new heights and truly refine your vocal technique.

Working with Justin has given me utmost confidence in my singing. He has taught me invaluable vocal techniques that previous coaches never taught me. Since I started with Justin, I feel that my voice has become stronger and it still continues to grow! I would recommend Justin to anyone for vocal instruction. Great, effective lessons for a cheap price!
