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.
Gregory H. Astoria, NY

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 ...

Rachel C. New York, NY

About Rachel

There are lots of reasons people take singing lessons...a dream of performing for crowds, wanting to melt faces at karaoke, not being embarrassed when singing in the shower... But the common goal is finding your voice and creating a sound you love. My studio is designed to create a space where that process is comfortable and fun! Lessons will start wherever you’re at and go at your own pace towards your specific goals.

I was trained at the School of Creative Arts in Sydney, Australia and specialize in pop, rock and indie rock vocal technique. I work with a lot of beginners as well as people in bands and songwriters.

I'm from an extremely musical family and have always loved singing. (I almost pushed my parents over the edge as a kid because I would hum CONSTANTLY...) I ...

Dr. Daniel C. New York, NY

About Dr. Daniel

Dr. Collins 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 ...

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!
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 ...

An advanced beginner's review

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.
