About Christina

Greetings! My name is Christina and I am a recent Rutgers University graduate with a double major in both music and economics. I have had over 12 years of private training in piano, with additional experience in violin, orchestra, choir and various performance-related events. Over the years I have studied with numerous pianists and incorporated many different methods and techniques that have greatly influenced my own teaching. I have been teaching music lessons to both children and adults since high school, and am comfortable teaching any age. I do believe that a solid foundation in any instrument begins with music theory, and it is something I incorporate little by little into each lesson; however, it is very important to me that the learning process be enjoyable, and I strive to ...

I'm an older student who always wanted to take piano lessons but never could (until now). Christina was worth the wait. She challenges me just enough so that I'm eager to practice, so I look forward to my piano lesson all week. My daughters are even playing again and piano music has once again filled our house. Wonderful!

About Cheryl

I have been a musician for over 25 years. I have a Bachelor of Music and have taught guitar for over 9 years. In addition to guitar, I'm a vocalist, composer and arranger as well as a music publisher. I actively perform as both a classical guitarist and singer-songwriter.

I love teaching guitar and find it so exciting to see kids (and grown-ups!) learn an instrument and be part of the magic of creating music!

The earliest age that I recommend for a child to start learning to read music is age 7. Learning an instrument teaches focus, develops self-direction and how to reach a goal, plus the added benefit of developing the brain for academic achievement. And, it's just plain FUN!!

Cheryl is an excellent teacher and I am so glad I started my guitar lessons with her. I have played guitar on my own for a few years but I felt stuck at my current level and wanted to expand my guitar skills. Cheryl is very patient and encouraging. The exercises she gives me are challenging but she teaches me everything I need to work on them and I am making so much progress. Cheryl is very knowledgeable about guitar and extremely qualified. I would strongly recommend her to any level guitar player!

Just recently retired, I decided to try guitar. Cheryl C. has been my instructor for the last 4 months. Cheryl is knowledgeable and instructs at a good pace. She is quick to recognize strengths (and weaknesses), and gives good feedback and instruction. Cheryl is very interactive in the sessions, and always keys on the accomplishments, while letting me know what needs to be done to get to the next level.

About Rosemary

If you want to become an artist; if you want to sharpen your critical thinking skills, improve your multitasking, expand your mind's capacity for learning and be able to unleash the power of wordless self-expression... study the violin.

At the tender age of five, I started a life-long love affair with the violin. Growing up in Westfield, NJ, I began my studies at the NJ Workshop for the Arts, and have since come full circle, serving on the faculty there to this day. I have a rich tapestry of experiences that contribute to the teacher and performer I am today, and in my students, I hope to light the spark that leads to a lifetime of musical memories.

I graduated summa cum laude with a Music Performance degree from Montclair State University in 2006, and I've been teaching ...

Rebekah is a thorough and patient violin teacher. When my 7 year old, daughter asked to learn the violin, I was not sure if she had enough of a capacity to focus, which is necessary for playing the violin. Under Rebekah's instruction, she has flourished; she is playing scales, songs, and reading music. After each session, Rebekah reviews with me the homework she has assigned to my daughter. Thanks to Rebekah, my daughter is developing a real appreciation for music, while enjoying the learning process. I highly recommend Rebekah!

I've been studying with Karl for over two years now. I'd taken lessons from two other teachers before, and I learned more in one lesson with Karl, than in three lessons from either of them. He guides students in developing their own styles, and at the same time, teaches them how to play with proper technique. I will be auditioning for county band on snare drum, and Karl had started preparing me for the audition months ago. All in all, anyone who takes lessons from Karl will not be disappointed.

I have studied with Karl for the past 3 years. While studying with him I have become much more versatile in my playing. Karl stresses the importance of practicing and pushes one to achieve their greatest potential. If you are struggling with a certain rudiment or concept he will break it down into simpler terms that are easy to understand and build upon. It has been a great experience studying drum set with Him.

About Chris

My name is Chris B. and I've been playing music for most of my life. I started playing guitar when I was in my early teens and, like most kids, just thought it would be cool to play in a band and have fun. Along with my brother Jon (on drums), we immediately started to jam with some neighborhood friends and quickly honed our cover song skills. We then progressed towards writing original music and eventually formed a new band. As time went on, we both started listening to more complex styles of music and spent countless hours improving upon our playing chops to match the advanced techniques of our favorite musicians.

The best lesson I've learned is that a musician is never done learning. Once you start believing that you know everything there is to know about your ...

Chris is a fantastic teacher. His approach to teaching makes sense and is very effective. My son is 10 and immediately had an excellent rapor with Chris.
Chris explained that he has several different ways of teaching and he tailors it to the child's experience and personality. Listening to him teach is pretty amazing. I want to video tape it and show it to the world. As you can see...we just think he's great!

I love taking lessons with Chris! He has the best way of explaining concepts and theory so that it is easy for someone like me, with no background in music, to understand. He's always professional, on time for lessons, and customizes my lessons based on songs I want to learn. Any student is lucky to have him as a teacher :)

Chris has been giving acoustic guitar lessons to my 10 year old daughter for several months now. He is great at communicating with her and is very encouraging and patient. He chose very relevant songs for her that she really enjoys learning and practicing. Each week he builds on the techniques he taught her previously and we can see real progress! I highly recommend Chris!
