Tu Quyen loves kids and knows how to bring the best out of them. My son just turned into 6 and is a little shy. But he was confident at taking her lessons all by himself and made amazing progress in less a year. I am looking forward to his another year of happy piano lessons.

Tu Quyen is a wonderful teacher. She is qualified, talented and devoted. My 12-year old loves her. My 19-year old college student still takes lessons with her when he's home for the summer and for the holidays. I highly recommend Tu Quyen.

Tu Quyen has a warm, patient, and generous teaching manner. She is a wonderful teacher both for younger kids and adults, and I experienced her teaching from both perspectives, for myself and my son.
I highly recommend her for those who are serious about learning the piano, and those who want to learn and enjoy music the correct way, as she emphasizes not only technique but also the connection of the music to the person's heart and mind. I could not ask for a better teacher.

All this is done with a smiling and cheerful disposition.I am very lucky to have found Nicole as a piano teacher for my 8 year old granddaughter.

She must be you teacher!

Cassandra is an incredibly good teacher and performer. She is very patient, which is a great quality when you just start leaning to play the piano (I am sure her ears must suffer). She has a good sense of humor and is very open minded, which helps create a relaxing environment. And yet, she also manages to push you and progress. I can only recommend her.

A musical journey

Cassandra has a seemingly endless reserve of patience that allows her to build each lesson as a musical journey. She has guided me to concentrate on my relaxation, sightreading, proper form, and musical interpretation. It has been my pleasure to explore music with her.

Marco O. Sunnyside, NY

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!

Matt La Von is the epitome of a great teacher. He is patient, allowing you to understand things on your own time.

I feel so lucky to find Amanda as my son's first piano teacher. She is great with kids and make my 3 year old boy fall in love with piano now through her great teaching skills and interesting "animal story books" designed specifically for young children to learn piano. It's been only 2 months since Ethan's first piano class with her, and he's already playing with both hands and a lot of kids songs like "twinkle twinkle little star", "London bridge is falling down", "old McDonald had a farm"...Thank you Amanda!

The piano teacher for a lifetime

Amanda is an amazing teacher. I went back to taking piano lessons at the age of 45 and Amanda has been an incredibly patient, generous, intelligent and warm teacher. She is very personable, extremely knowledgeable about music, and the lessons are individually tailored so that I get the most out of them. I have learned so much as her pupil and I am growing (slowly!) as a pianist. Amanda has made this process enjoyable, fulfilling, and yes...fun!
