Bill T. Brooklyn, NY

Clarinet, Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Saxophone

About Me

I began playing the saxophone as well as clarinet and flute at a young age. I studied the various woodwind instruments in his hometown of Buffalo, New York under instruction of some of the regions most renown players and educators. I earned my Bachelors degree in Jazz Studies at the Purchase College Conservatory of Music. While attending school at Purchase, I had the opportunity to study under a great variety of world class saxophonists and jazz artists such as Jimmy Greene, Eric Alexander, Steve Wilson, Jon Gordon, Todd Coolman, Jon Faddis and Pete Malinverni. Throughout my career, I've performed with such distinguished artists as Joey DeFrancesco, Randy Brecker, Bob Mintzer, and Cyrille-Aimee. I've performed in Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at Linclon Center, Birdland, many other venues in the NYC and Buffalo areas and also played Reed 1 on the national tour of Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein: The Musical. Currently I reside in Brooklyn, New York where I've been able to immerse myself in the great musical hub of New York City. Alongside being a performer, I am also an experienced educator and have worked with many students ranging from grades K-12 and beyond. Before moving to New York City, I taught privately and was also a faculty member for the Ken-Ton Summer Music program held in Buffalo, NY teaching saxophone, flute and clarinet lessons from 2009-2011.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is unique, therefore, lessons are designed to fit the student individually. My teaching style is molded to satisfy each students wants and needs. I also like to focus on developing proper playing habits.

Lessons are about having fun making music, learning, and improving.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Chairs, music stands and keyboard for harmonic discussions.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to bring their own music notebook and their own instrument. They may also need to purchase their own lesson books when the time comes.

*** Specialties ***
I can help my students learn how to play in a variety of styles ranging from classical (solos, chamber music, etudes, etc.) to jazz (improvisation, harmony, etc.). Whether they're working on a song to play at school, a NYSSMA or All County solo, or just learning for fun, I will help them play to the best of their ability.

Roberta M. Brooklyn, NY

Subjects Taught

Flute, Music Theory, Piano

About Me

Flutist, Roberta M., is equally at home playing classical and new music. I Care If You Listen has extolled her “lush, full tones… even among the best professionals, not many flute players sound so compelling in a lower register.” Praising her “extreme adventurousness,” New York Concert Review said she “riveted with her performance, inspiring one to want a repeated hearing.” Roberta is a founding member of the Cadillac Moon Ensemble, a quartet of unusual instrumentation dedicated to commissioning and performing new works. To date, the group has commissioned over fifty pieces.

Roberta holds a Bachelor of Music with highest honors from the University of Colorado at Boulder, a Master of Music from SUNY-Purchase College, and Doctor of Musical Arts from the City University of New York Graduate Center. Her teachers include Robert Dick, Tara Helen O’Connor, Alexa Still, and Jean Rosenblum. Roberta resides in Brooklyn, New York where she teaches privately and is on faculty at Great Neck Music Conservatory.

Roberta has performed with groups including Duo RoMi (with pianist Mirna Lekic), the Portland String Quartet, SEM Ensemble, Wet Ink Ensemble, Argento Chamber Ensemble, Wordless Music Orchestra, Ensemble Moto Perpetuo, Lunatics at Large, Kagel Nacht, Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas, Cheyenne Symphony, and the Greeley Philharmonic in venues including Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Alice Tulley Hall, Merkin Hall, The Kennedy Center, Bargemusic (with tenor Robert White), and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. As a guest artist, she has appeared at Bloomsburg University and the University of Southern Maine. She has recorded on New Dynamic Records, Meta, Bridge, and Innova Records.

Roberta has been a Bang on a Can Summer Institute fellow and a participant in the Institute and Festival of Contemporary Performance at Mannes College, as well as participating in festivals at Banff and Domaine Forget.

Other awards include: Purchase College’s Baroque Concerto Competition, Bay Chamber Summer Music Woodwind Prize, Dante Alighieri Society of Denver Music Scholarship, and the Emily K. Rand Award.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my studio, I believe that my role is to steer students toward a deeper understanding of themselves, their instrument, and their relationship to music. I tailor my teaching to the needs of my individual students, who currently range from age 4 to adult, often adding improvisation and extended techniques to increase my students’ awareness of the potential of the flute as a channel for one’s creativity.

With over a decade of teaching and a doctorate in flute performance, I have extensive experience teaching flute lessons and recorder lessons to students from beginners to advanced. I teach at my studio in Brooklyn or can come to your home in New York City. I have previously taught in Colorado, Westchester, NY, and throughout New York City. I've been on faculty at The Harmony Program and the Denver Public School’s Saturday Music Program, where I taught beginning flute classes to public school children. I have given masterclasses at the University of Southern Maine and the Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts High School, and have taught music classes at Purchase College and Hostos Community College.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a studio with music stands, flutes, recorders, an upright piano, and place for parents to wait. Street parking is available, and I'm less than a block from the subway.

Students are expected to bring their instrument, music, and a notebook.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my flute. Students need to have a music stand, music, a notebook, and a working instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I am well-versed in all areas of classical music, especially new music. My primary instrument is flute, but I also enjoy teaching beginner piano, recorder, and music theory.

Matt L. Brooklyn, NY

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Flute, Music Recording, Music Theory, Saxophone

About Me

Matt, 36 years old, has enjoyed working and teaching as a professional musician for at least 15 years. He began studying music and playing the saxophone at age 11. He currently lives and works in the New York City area after moving there from Philadelphia in early 2001, after graduating from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 1999 with a Bachelors in Music.

Throughout his musical career, Matt has performed and worked in a variety of capacities including as a composer and recording studio engineer. His main area of expertise is performing as a jazz saxophonist on alto, tenor, and soprano saxophones, and he regularly plays throughout New York City in restaurants and jazz clubs.

Matt's area of expertise in teaching is beginner to advanced studies on the saxophone, beginner to intermediate studies on the flute and the clarinet, music theory, and jazz improvisation for any instrument. Whether he is teaching saxophone, flute, or clarinet, his teaching approach places emphasis on giving the student an in depth understanding of his or her instrument. He puts the utmost importance on explaining advanced concepts in the simplest of terms in order to insure that the student fully comprehends the objectives of each lesson. Such concepts that he covers regularly and places importance on are sight-reading, ear-training, and creativity.

As a regularly performing musician in New York City, Matt can be seen every Sunday night from 7 pm to 10 pm at Ba'sik (a new and very popular bar in Williamsburg Brooklyn, just off of the Graham ave stop on the L train) where he leads the open jazz jam session. A few of his adult students have even been able to reach a level in jazz improvisation that they've been able to come out and sit in with the band.

In addition to teaching woodwind instruments and jazz improvisation, Matt also has experience teaching Sibelius music writing software, and audio engineering with Pro-tools LE and Logic Pro.

PLEASE NOTE: Because the NYC area is very different geographically from other parts of the country, especially in terms of transportation, I may appear outside of your area in terms of where I am available to travel. If you are very interested in taking lessons with me, but you are outside of my travel zone, please feel free to follow up with a Takelessons counselor and have them contact me personally to see if we might make an exception. I am available to travel to virtually all areas of Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan as well as Jersey City and Hoboken. if my location in Williamsburg Brooklyn is not convenient for you, and you are unable to have lessons in your home, then there is also an option where I can most likely find a very affordable teaching studio in an area that is more convenient for you that we may rent by the hour and split the cost for your lesson.

*** Lesson Details ***
Matt believes that any student, regardless of age or experience level, learns best when engaged in an activity that he or she understands and enjoys. Part of his success as a teacher can be attributed to his willingness to take into account every student's particular musical interests and strengths, and in tern, he teaches directly to those areas. For instance, in the initial stages of developing a student and teacher relationship, Matt requests that the student compile a "wish list" of approximately ten pieces of music that he or she would like to be able to play. This list may include pieces in such genres as classical, jazz, and popular music, just to name a few. It is through this list that the student can begin almost immediately learning exactly what he or she likes, and by default, Matt can then teach the student all of the technical components needed to perform on his or her instrument, as well as determine the specific areas where the student needs to receive more focused instruction. More importantly, this "thinking outside of the box," customized approach provides a fun atmosphere and enables the student to enjoy learning the art of playing music by not being solely dependent on instructional booklets which many students, regardless of age and experience, find boring and tedious.

Flute, Music Theory, Piano, Singing, Viola, Violin

About Me

I never asked for much as a child, so when I arrived home one day after school asking to play the violin, Mom just couldn't say no.

This led to lessons on violin, and a little later, viola. The next year, I decided to start flute and piano lessons on the same week! As a youngster, I wanted to experience all the music I could, and by high school was playing in the school€™'s marching and concert bands, orchestra, percussion ensemble, jazz band, and singing in the chorus. It was during this time I started teaching a few private music lessons, with my teacher'€™s support, and got hooked!

My senior year I was asked to perform a solo concerto with the Concert Band, and set a record during Ohio'€™s Adjudicated Event by receiving 4 Superior (I) ratings, all for Class A solos on different instruments.

My love of music and teaching led me to enroll in one of the top Music Education schools in the Midwest, Bowling Green State University, where I was awarded a Talent Award Scholarship all four years. I played with the Wind Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble and Jazz Band. I had more opportunities to solo during this time, both with the BGSU Concert Band, and with the Findlay Civic Band.

Straight out of college I moved to the South and got a job teaching orchestra with the Berkeley County School District, outside of Charleston, South Carolina. There my responsibilities were to the 5th grade beginning string classes, the 6th, 7th and 8th grade string orchestras, and the high school orchestra. I continued to keep a private studio as well.

Then I moved back to Ohio to work on my Master'€™s degree at University of Akron, keeping busy with school, private teaching, and playing bass guitar (plus some piano, strings and flute) in a rock band. When my studies were complete, I started teaching general music to grades PreK-8th grade for the Cleveland Diocese Catholic Schools.

This experience served me well in the move to the Big Apple. Since moving to New York city, I have taught at KAPPA VII in Brooklyn, Birch Wathen Lenox School and Léman Manhattan Preparatory School, both in Manhattan. During my tenure with these schools I taught both elementary and middle school students. General music, including singing, playing Orff instruments and recorders, group violin class, group piano class, middle school Vocal Ensemble and Rock Band, were some of the classes I taught. During this time I had the opportunity to play with the Brooklyn Conservatory Community Orchestra, and the bands Team Genius and Miwa Gemini.

After spending many years teaching in the classroom, I have come back to what I love most, teaching one-on-one and in small groups, working with people who want to learn music.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my eyes, the most important reason to play music is because you love it. This is why I strive to make all my lessons enjoyable and inspiring.

Young students, in addition to learning their instrument, play fun games to teach music fundamentals such as note reading and ear training. We also save time to improvise and compose short pieces of music, because I believe in nurturing creativity in each child.

Older students lessons are tailored to your unique strengths and interests. They can include music reading, composing and improvising, recording techniques, reading chord charts and more.

My favorite part of teaching is getting to know each student, your personality and interests, and how you learn the best. I can then customize your curriculum so you can get the most out of your lessons.

Whether you are the parent of a young child just beginning music lessons, an adult coming back to music after some time off, or anywhere in between, I invite you to contact me so we can discuss how I can help make your musical dreams come true.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I bring an instrument (except for piano), games and supplies to each lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have their own instrument, music and accessories, and a music stand.

*** Specialties ***
Beginning Violin and Piano Lessons for All Ages.

Clarinet, Flute, Saxophone

About Me

My name is Erika and music has always been an essential part of my life! As soon as the cliche dream of becoming an astronaut was out of my mind, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in music- my dream was to become a professional pit orchestra musician on Broadway. I attended Ithaca College and received my bachelors degree in music education and saxophone performance, where I quickly learned that I enjoyed teaching as much as performing! I loved conducting high school band and teaching private and group instrumental lessons. I was a member of the pit orchestra in several collegiate and professional musical productions, as well as the alto saxophone player of Zephyr Saxophone Quartet. In my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors, playing ping pong, taking pictures and exploring new cities. I am currently pursuing my masters degree in Multiple Woodwind Performance (Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone) at New Jersey City University, following my dream to becoming a musician on Broadway!

*** Lesson Details ***
In our first few lessons together, I will spend time getting to know you, your long and short term goals, strengths and weaknesses as a musician. This will allow me to personalize and cater future lessons to you!

A proper warm-up on your instrument is essential to maximize musical growth during a practice session. That is why I start all lessons with brief, yet effective warm-up studies. The majority of the lesson will focus on improving solo repertoire, school band music and anything else you would like to play. I love incorporating duets into the lesson- a fun and positive way to end the day!

I can ensure enjoyable and effective lessons on your favorite instrument!
