Cole K. Brooklyn, NY

Over the past 5 years I have created a home studio to work from. Here I arrange, compose, and record music. Since the advent of streaming music, and mp3's, the music industry has changed dramatically. During this time it has been important to be able to facilitate my own recordings from home. This has included the recording of instrumental tracks, vocal tracks, beat making, and overdubbing.

About Cole

On any given day you may find Cole K. improvising in a small club in Brooklyn, circuit-bending a Speak And Spell, or arranging horn parts for pop stars. He is a trumpet player, electronic musician, and composer living in Brooklyn, NY. K. is currently involved with a variety of projects including chamber indie band Cuddle Magic, People’s Champs (west African influenced dance music), and his own solo project for trumpet and laptop. He, along with The Superpowers Horns, arranged and recorded the horn parts for Beyonce Knowles’ two most recent albums (4 and Beyonce.) He attended New England Conservatory of Music where he received a Bachelors degree in Jazz Studies.

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.

Best Guitar Instructor I've Ever Hada

If you are looking for the best guitar instructor, you need to study with Jeff. I have been taking lessons with Jeff now for almost a year, actually this coming February will be exactly one year. The best decision I ever made was hooking up with Jeff. I am studying fingerstyle acoustic guitar with Jeff. Let me tell you that he has helped me improve my guitar playing 100 fold. He has me playing James Taylor songs, which I thought I could never accomplish at my age, which is 60 this January. So it’s never too late make your dream come true when you take lessons with Jeff.

Great Teacher

I'm a beginner and Jeff has great patience with me. He let me catch up lessons at my speed and makes sure I'm playing well.
I'm also learning to read music from him.
He is very encouraging and patiently clears any doubts I have while playing. He points out mistakes and makes sure I clear it before going to the next lesson. I look forward to my lessons with him every week as it makes me happy and more confident while I play guitar.

He knows exactly what he is doing. He has shown me techniques my past 2 instructors failed to even attempt to show me. I'm not where I want to be but with him I am confident I'm on my way. Whether you're a beginner or advanced there's always room for improvement and Desmond will find it within that session. He is willing to work with you schedule and need I mention very affordable. You won't regret his classes!

Good product with excellent skills.

I've had the opportunity to work with Desmond upon forming his Vocal Ensemble choir, that had a Classical based foundation. As one of the Ensembles’ founding member I sang with the alto line, and found great joy and fulfillment in attending rehearsals.
Within six months of our choirs’ conception we had an enormous repertoire, and was touring, appearing on television, attending interviews with the media, performing in and winning competitions. Needless to say Desmond’s musical skills was a ray of sunlight, which came our way boosting our self confidence, while creating success for the group. I’m happy to have been a part of this group and am pleased to recommend Desmond to anyone who is serious and wants to learn music.

A nurturing teacher

I have worked with Desmond previously (as an accompanist for one of his choirs). Desmond is a very gentle, kind spirit and I believe he would be a very nurturing teacher for a voice student. He also has the advantage of having a very broad background in different styles of music, from reggae to jazz/pop to classical.

I've had a great experience working with Brendon. He's been reliable, and explains things very well. He's been able to tailor the lesson plan to exactly what I need. I am much further ahead than I expected to be at this point, thanks to him.I give him the highest recommendation.

Brendon is very knowledgeable in Music Theory. We have been working on Schenkerian analysis. He assigns helpful assignments and readings each week to guide my learning.
Stelios M. Brooklyn, NY

Since 2000 I've built my own isolated sound proof room and have been busy recording anything from rock bands to smaller classical & avant-garde ensembles.

I could help choosing and setting up your audio gear or give tutorials on using Logic Audio & getting the most out of your room and mics.

Mixing is also an important area of my experience, please ask for samples.

About Stelios

If you are passionate about the guitar & music in general we will get along real well. Whether your interest lies in the electric or classical guitar I can offer a structured program of study based on my experience studying under some of the leading artists of both musical worlds.

After completing Classical Guitar studies & a Musicology degree I moved to Boston to study with some of Jazz's greatest musicians and pedagogues.

I believe in structuring the course of study and have seen that setting goals makes a huge difference & therefore there are opportunities for student recitals and/or recording sessions several times throughout the year.

While in Boston I was a faculty member of the South Shore Conservatory from 2008-2010. In NYC along with my a ...

Guitar teachers are a dime a dozen.

Stelios is one in a million.

Next to every review of a teacher you'll see
a rating of 1-to-5 stars. For me Stelios gets a 10.

I'm always sorry when my lesson with him ends.
Each time he impresses me more. And each
time I feel I've improved. He's got me playing
classical pieces I never thought I could play.
I'm amazed at how much he knows and how
beautifully he plays. And any style.

What a talent. What s nice guy. And what
a teacher.

If he's got slot open I recommend you grab it.

You won't find better.

Stelios shares his extensive knowledge of music with his students while incorporating enjoyment into each lesson. My son has learned a lot and still likes to play the guitar. His demeanor is very calm and pleasant. Overall, a great instructor with tons of knowledge in his field that he is willing and excited to share!
James R. North Brunswick, NJ

I am the owner of a Professional Class A Recording Studio, and have been working in & out of Studios for 40 years. My goal is to help you establish a strong foundation and understand of the Recording process. I want to help you have a clear perspective on how to think when you're approaching Recording, whether it's a Vocal, Guitar or even a Harmonica, it's a combination of experience, fore site & an overview of what you want that individual instrument to sound like, along with the Bigger picture of how the whole project will sound as a finished Product..It's important to understand the conditions you're working in, or under because that also can be a factor in the whole process as well.

I have been taking lessons with Jimmy for 3 years and could not ask for a better teacher. He makes my interest grow and has a wealth of knowledge and the patience to share it. He challenges me regularly. I only wish I had found him sooner as previous instructors never had the flexibility or patience that Jimmy has.
Learning in such a relaxed environment has worked very well for me. My son has since started lessons with Jimmy as well and it has become a great experience for both of us.

Jimmy's patience with my 6 year-old son was remarkable. I was reluctant to start him so young, but Jimmy explained things in a way he could understand, and always encouraged him to ask questions. My son learned so much, and he was really excited to learn, thanks to Jimmy's calm demeanor and skill as a teacher. I would recommend Jimmy to ANYONE that wants to learn, he is a wonderful teacher!

Jimmy is just unbelievable. He's friendly, and always finds the positive in the process of teaching. I've studied guitar, and recorded vocals in his studio.
He makes himself available, and is gracious when circumstances prevents the lesson for that week. Given my busy schedule, I've had to stop the guitar lessons. However, I just saw that they may be able to be done online?...If that's the case, please contact me Jimmy. I'd love to re-start asap.
