Matt La Von is the epitome of a great teacher. He is patient, allowing you to understand things on your own time. His instruction is clear and easy to understand and his knowledge of music seems to be endless. Above all else he is an accomplished musician and I trust that under his watchful eye I will be able to improve and refine my own abilities.

About Adriana

Hello! =) I am an active violin teacher and performer in the New York City area, and graduate of the Juilliard School. I earned my Bachelor of Music degree in Violin Performance, studying with the world-renowned violinist, Naoko Tanaka (Faculty, the Juilliard School, New England Conservatory of Music; Concertmaster, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra; Concertmaster, Orchestra of St. Luke's.)

In addition to my private teaching studio, I assistant teach for Ms. Tanaka, with a focus on preparing her younger students for entry into Juilliard Pre-College. I also teach group classes and private lessons for the Harmony Program, offered in select public schools throughout NYC.

In my lessons one thing is instantly noticeable - I LOVE to teach the violin. I think it's incredibly fun and I ...

Laura K. New York, NY

About Laura

Music is definitely the universal language, and there isn't a genre I don't love; it's important to me that that aspect be brought to lessons, as well! From humble New Jersey beginnings to an opera career, I've seen the power of what music can do!

Whether it's opera, musical theater, folk, rock, or just public speaking, anything YOU love to do, I would love to teach you! Having taught all ages and levels, from first graders to adults, from someone who's never sung a note in his or her life to semi-professionals, I cater my lessons to what YOU as a student need and are interested in.

Lessons shouldn't be a chore - I like to foster an environment you look forward to being a part of! I also think that music, like any sport, is hard work, and takes ...

Awesome teacher! patient, knowledgeable, & creative

I'm a complete beginner, could barely sing in tune. I decided to take lessons for fun. but whoa was i surprised at the progress I've made with Laura in just a few short months. She has catered to my individual needs, and has made my learning experience fun. She works at my pace so i never feel rushed or bored. She teaches singing lessons in a way anyone can understand. Her background in opera means she can sing and teach her students amazing vocal range. She taught me anything is possible with hard work and dedication! I've learned so much with her, it's hard to put it all in a short review. Pick her and you won't be disappointed! Thank you Laura!

Great teacher

Laura is a really good and nice teacher. She is patient to answer all of my questions.I improved a lot in a short period of time with her tips on singing. She's not only just teach you how to sing, she also talks some histories of music and different examples or even her experiences to me. She can make an exercise into a fun way to do. I learned a lot from her and I gain more confident on singing. I'm always looking forward to take lessons with her. She's such a great singer and vocal coach!! Laura is a great choice for those of you who want to learn singing in a comfortable, no pressure and fun environment. ^_^

Gio A. New York, NY

About Gio

I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put ...

Guitar
Great, creative teacher

Gio has a great way of thinking outside the box and teaching my daughter each week. He uses creative methods to engage her and help her relate to the material and provides easy instructions for practicing during the week. He is patient and easy going which allows for her not to feel overwhelmed as she's just learning the guitar. I'm very happy with how he's teaching her!

Guitar
Attentive and great at teaching technique

Gio truly focuses on the student's needs. I've met too many self-absorbed musicians in the past, but Gio really pays attention to details in the student's playing. He is excellent at teaching technique and was the first guitar teacher to help me fix physical problems regarding posture and arm tension. His kind, easy-going manner makes a student comfortable. He has a wealth of musical knowledge to share.
Briana S. New York, NY

About Briana

As a voice teacher, I draw on my experience as a professional opera singer and actor, my teaching background in various areas (music, theatre, yoga, fitness, literature, etc.), and my training in classical singing, musical theater, acting, and various methods of body work. I strive to create an environment of mutual respect that is fun and safe, where students can take risks, learn to challenge themselves productively, and find increased joy and freedom in expression. Self-awareness/body-awareness, relaxation, and nurturing of individuality are emphasized above all.

My teaching philosophies and techniques draw primarily from my study of movement and mindfulness through disciplines such as yoga, and especially the Feldenkrais Method, "a remarkable approach to human movement, ...

Singing
In what is surely a testament to her teaching ability, Briana's passions for music and learning - independently or in combination - are infectious. Briana understands the importance of treating and training the complete singer, addressing both the student's both physical/technical and personal/artistic capacities. She is versatile, open-minded, empathetic, and always delightful. I am honored to be her colleague and happy to recommend her.

Briana is an excellent and inspiring teacher to work with. In my experience, she brings a sense of excitement to the subject of singing that is contagious and motivated me to put my best foot forward not just in our meetings, but also in my practicing at home. Beyond repertoire and technique, her expertise extends into the physical and emotional aspects of singing. She is incredibly sensitive to where the student is coming from, and is able to meet him/her at that level. The ideas she shared have stuck with me and continue to help me as I develop further.

Opera Voice · In studio
Dr. Regina is an inspiration! I began studying with her in Georgia at Shorter College and eventually transferred to Minnesota to finish my undergraduate degree with her. She is truly passionate about music, and the energy creates an incredible atmosphere for learning! She challenged me as a singer and performer and helped me learn to breathe life into the music--while also transforming my voice. She is a wonderful teacher and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Even a Skype lesson if you can't make it to her in NY. They are quiet helpful! I only wish I lived in the NY area so I could take from her in person. She is wonderful and I hope to continue studying with her for years to come.

Singing · In studio
I have been studying Voice (mostly emphasized on Broadway Singing) with Regina for a few months now and I am loving the lessons! She has really helped me identify the strong parts of my voice and showcase them while also strengthening those that are not as strong. What sets Regina apart from other teachers I've had in the past is that she does a really excellent job catering to each student's individual needs instead of having a set teaching structure that you have to try to fit yourself into. I also especially like that she will take the time to talk through the technique in a way that makes total sense and even if it doesn't at first, she'll always find a way to explain it differently until you really grasp the concept. Regina is an amazing teacher and I would recommend her to anyone who wants to push their voice to the next level!

Musical Theater
I had the fabulous opportunity to work with Dr. Regina during my four years of Undergraduate study at the University of Minnesota Duluth. While Dr. Regina's expertise and reputation are largely based in classical music, I found her to be a perfect match for my vocal studies in Musical Theater. Her teachings and training were extremely beneficial to me, not only as a vocalist, but as a performer.
What I love about Dr. Regina is that her lessons are very personal focusing as you the student, you the performer, and you the person. I truly felt that she cared about my overall vocal health and growth as a singer. She challenged me with classical repertoire that kept me on track for my juries and made me feel comfortable with all of my class and show material for my Musical Theater studies.
Dr. Regina is a well-rounded vocalist, teacher, performer, and woman. She feels passionately about her craft and her students. It is important to her that each student comes to the understanding of concepts and techniques. I always left my lessons feeling that I had accomplished something and had the tools I needed to put forth my best possible performance. Dr. Regina is a fabulous teacher, with a worldly knowledge of voice and a fantastic sense of humor! You will look forward to every one of your lessons with her!
