Trumpet · In home
This Cole is King! I would give Cole 10 stars if it were possible. I had lessons with Cole in the summer of 2014 on the trumpet and let me tell you the guy is a giant on trumpet. I learned so much. I learned more in a summer's lessons with Cole than most people get in years. He made learning trumpet a lot of fun but at the same time I leaned basic skills, like how to keep beat and count. Can't say enough.

About Ryan

Music is more than my hobby, or my career, it is my life. I have had the opportunity to work with some great innovative drummers and musicians, and am very enthusiastic about sharing my knowledge of music with others. I am a very laid back person, but I have a lot of passion for music and drumming. I graduated Berklee College of Music as a drum set performance major in 2009 and I have been playing drums for the last 16 years. I am very excited to continue teaching and guide students into finding the unique artist within themselves.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student has different ways of learning at which they excel. We will build the lesson plan that is right for you, set short term weekly goals that will each be a stepping stone towards the drummer you want to become. For the ...

About Cindy

Regardless of where your musical interests lie, I can help you improve your skills! Growing up, I fell in love with playing and singing all styles of music! I've delved into classical, jazz, R&B, soul, gospel, reggae, soca, pop and musical theater, and I can teach you how to apply technique to the genre(s) of your choice!

If you're looking to become a better singer, we will focus on finding the beauty and power in your voice in a healthy manner. Vocal health is an important component of everything I teach, and I work to eliminate strain and vocal fatigue. With a healthy foundation in place, we will fine tune your skills by addressing pitch accuracy, vocal control, phrasing, dynamics, expression and microphone technique.

If you're interested in playing piano, you ...

Me being a contemporary vocalist(pop/r&b) with previous instruction, Cindy has been a much needed breath of fresh air. I've trained with other instructors and she is by far one of my favorites. They say a great singer is a great listener and Cindy proves this theory by attentively listening to your concerns and providing you with practical solutions. Her warm, energetic and passionate personality helps you feel more comfortable with trying new techniques without feeling embarrassed.

I studied classical technique with previous instructors and I found that it wasn't very effective for my style. Cindy immediately noticed this and has began to re-work my technique with challenging exercises that I can feel and HEAR the results from during studio sessions and live performances...which is where it counts honestly, and that makes me very happy.

I love to constantly push myself to be better and I feel like Cindy understands exactly how to do that, which is why I feel confident in my decision of choosing her. I would definitely recommend her with glowing stars to any one in any style that is in search of an excellent teacher.

Six words describe Cindy. I WISH I DISCOVERED HER SOONER! She is exactly what I was looking for in a music theory teacher for my son. The chemistry between them is fantastic. She customizes the lesson to my son's needs. I have seen a major difference in a short period of time, with his sight reading, playing by ear, playing scales and chords. I would definitely recommend her and will be taking lessons as long as she is teaching.

Lana C. Brooklyn, NY

About Lana

Featured and described in the "Rolling Stone Magazine" as a musician that makes: " free of regimentation and fixed format; very exciting."

I've been performing for 29 years and teaching for over 10 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love and understanding of the instrument and its capacity.

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play simple songs and as time goes on you'll be able to integrate technique and your creativity in your playing and singing.

The lessons are designed to meet your musical interests and goals.

I specialize in classical, jazz and pop/rock have the following tools available at my home studio for your lessons:

I have a wonderful Korg SV1 Vintage Piano, I have mics, cables, a ...

I have been taking lessons with Lana for more than a year and it has been a wonderful experience. Lana is a highly skilled, passionate and student oriented teacher. Her lessons are always fun and thoughtful. She combines different aspects of singing such as technique, body perception, relaxation training and musicality. My voice has improved significantly and I appreciate Lana's holistic approach. I can highly recommend her as a teacher and I'm sure you'll have a wonderful experience with her!

Singing · In studio
Lana is an all around amazing teacher, performer, and musician.

I have been working with her privately over the past year and my entire understanding of the voice and signing has been fundamentally improved beyond what I thought was possible.

I work playing jazz saxophone and flute and wanted to start singing to further develop my ear.

In our lessons, Lana fuses both western classical and jazz singing technique with Indian classical vocal tradition seamlessly into a neat package even while we work on simple pop melodies.

Her teaching style and skill set is truly a unique gift and certainly rare among voice teachers.

Lana maintains a brisk yet mindful pace and I am fully engaged throughout the entirety of each lesson.

Lana also has an incredible sense of rhythm, is a Tabla player and has studied with Master Samir Chatterjee. Her sense of pitch is also unrivaled by most professional musicians and she can memorize and clearly project the most complicated of atonal jazz phrases. Furthermore, Lana plays the piano with great skill and grace both to accompany me during lessons and to accompany herself during performances.

I highly recommend studying with Lana for anyone interested in beginning or advanced study of the voice.

Lana is a thoughtful and comprehensive teacher who cares about her students. She is very experienced as a singer and performer and helped me with both my vocal technique and performance presence. She brings an embodied, holistic approach to singing and is a refreshing perspective to the teacher-student relationship.
