*** Lesson Details ***
I teach music students want to learn. I don't use books because every student learns differently. I have a very laid back personality but I am strict when it comes to practicing and learning the material from the previous lesson. After 3-6 months students will be able to play multiple songs, have a good grasp on scales and will be at the point where they can look at joining their first band with confidence!

*** Studio Equipment ***
We have a variety of studio equipment for students to use including guitars, amps, keyboards and drums. We also have an assortment of music stands laptops and enhanced learning tools to allow the student to get the most out of their lesson!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide certain items that allow students to do exercises. Metronome and a laptop are common for me. I expect the student to have access to the specific instrument they are intending to learn

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in contemporary style using classical methods

Paul C. Tuckahoe, NY

Subjects Taught

Acoustic Guitar, Arrangement and Composition, Audition Prep, Bass Guitar, Blues Guitar, Composition, Ear Training, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Organ, Piano, Songwriting, Upright Bass

About Me

I teach from a student's existing musical reality. Regardless of age, people have music that they like and love, as well as dislike. Through speaking with a student, I gather musical styles, genres, composers, artists, and songs that the student enjoys and I begin teaching this music to the student immediately, regardless of musical knowledge on their instrument. In the case of a beginner student, I customize personal arrangements of musical pieces for each student to match a student's current musical skill set.
I have found that a student has as much to show me about their own musical reality than I have to show about mine. I am more of a facilitator than a traditional teacher. I help set up goals as far as song selections, and various performance possibilities: sight-reading and technique, improvisation, and learning by way of ear-training exercises. I do not simply dictate my expertise to a student, but rather, I teach the necessary musical skill sets, theory, and background knowledge of their instrument in order for the student to play what they want to play. What my student may show me in terms of musical styles, artists, I in turn show musical styles, genres, artists and songs - both historical and present day - that relate to what a student has shown to me. It is a symbiotic relationship.

*Below is an excerpt from the bio page of my website:

In addition to performing in the New York area, Paul teaches private lessons on piano, organ, guitar, and bass. Lessons include, but are not limited to improvisation, music theory, and ear training. Paul earned a bachelor of arts in English from Fordham University, and graduated Summa Cum Laude from the master of arts program in music education form NYU. Paul has returned to NYU on two separate occasions as a guest speaker for the Music Business class, addressing both undergraduate and graduate performing arts and music education majors, sharing his own experience at NYU, as well as all aspects of his career being a band leader, freelance musician, and educator.

As a performer, Paul's various projects reflect his love for classic r&b and soul, funk, blues, and jazz.
His latest project as a leader involves the Hammond B3 organ, for which he has used both the classic organ trio instrumentation of organ, guitar, drums, as well as organ, bass drums, and also organ and drum duo.

For the past 20 years, Paul has also been a session musician in recording studios in New York City and the surrounding area. Paul has composed recorded for television commercials for Nike, Banana Boat, and the MSG Network, and has recorded for artists such as Michael Powers, Melissa Reaves, The 4th Floor, and The Hip Pocket Band. Paul's latest session work has been at Sliding Door Studios in New Rochelle, NY where Paul has been heard on various artist's CD's, as well as music and sound design for television shows such as CBS's "Criminal Minds", "Pawn Stars", "Cajun Pawn Stars" and "American Pickers", WE's "Big Easy Brides", and Velocity's "Saw Dogs".

Paul currently lives in Tuckahoe, NY with his wife and two children

Anthony R. Mahopac, NY

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Organ, Piano

About Me

Hello! My name is Anthony Rispo. I have been interested in the field of pedagogy since I began playing music myself, and I have been teaching for several years. My life and professional experiences as a performing musician have influenced who I am and how I deliver as a teacher. I perform organ recitals nationwide; I am also a composer and avid improviser. I can teach improvisation on both the organ and the piano. Another one of my passions and skills is teaching Injury Preventative Keyboard Technique, aka, "The Lister-Sink Method". I was fortunate enough to receive certification in this method by Barbara Lister-Sink herself. This method is revolutionary, as it enables one to play like a true concert artist without the too often misconceived "occupational pain" that is associated with performing. I studied organ at the Juilliard Pre-College and attended The Cleveland Institute of Music to further my studies. 914.979.5181 or anthony.rispo@gmail.com (personal site in the works!) Thanks!
