About Erica

Hi! My name is Erica, and I am a private lesson teacher, composer, arranger, and pianist currently living, writing, performing, and teaching in North Jersey. I believe that by having such a versatile musical background, I will be able to understand different needs and interests you may have and help you begin or continue your musical journey and reach your goals. I currently teach 30 private piano and composition students in North New Jersey, and I am consistently inspired by all the progress all my students have made! My students have played classical pieces in recitals, played in jazz combos with other student musicians, written music that was performed by professional ensembles, learned how to play ragtime, and more. No two students have gone down the same path, because the ...

She gets it!

Quick background: I was classically trained for about 7 years in piano, starting when I was around 9. My teacher was great, and did an awesome job of driving the fundamentals.

Fast forward to more recently: Having not taken lessons for 15+ years (I had continued playing and learning...just without a teacher), I decided I wanted to pursue a bit more jazz and theory. I went back to my childhood teacher, who very honestly told me that jazz was not his forte. I took a few months of lessons with him, which helped to get me back into the swing of things, but I was really interested in jazz.

I found Erica on takelessons, and she was truly amazing! If you're looking for a teacher who is always "by the book", this isn't her. While I'm sure she can do that, she thrives in allowing you to be a musician. Her understanding of complex time signatures is great, and she really helps to chunk things up into manageable pieces.

Some of her greatest strengths, from the student's perspective, are her patience, friendly demeanor, STRONG understanding of music theory (she's a composer at heart, and I've no doubt that she's great at it), broad knowledge of music, from composers to artists, and her ability to help you learn to improvise. If I wanted to play different notes than what was on the page, within reason of course, that was ok. Having come from a classical background, that was quite refreshing.

I was always able to look forward to learning something new at my lessons; even her book recommendations have been excellent.

I'd say, because of her patience, she's a perfect teacher for adults and children alike. You really can't go wrong with Erica!

Joe has done a tremendous job with my five-year-old son, who, having ADHD, is generally a challenge for his parents and teachers. Joe has made the lessons fun for my son, who is progressing and engaged at a level I never envisioned.

Stefano is a phenomenal young guitar teacher with excellent rates for private lessons.

I must say that since my son, Richard (12 years old) started taking classes with Stefano, he has learned to play the guitar properly. As a trumpet player and High School teacher of 18 years myself, I wanted to my son to not only play chords (which is how many guitar teachers teach) but also to play classical music as well as rock and most importantly to learn to read musical notes.
My son is very happy to be taking classes with Stefano, to the the extent that he looks forward for the next class as opposed to other teachers he has had in the past. Stefano's professionalism, ethics, and kindness are superb. He is a natural teacher with teaching skills that will go very far as a guitar instructor while making students feel comfortable while learning. He has an eye to catch all the kinds of mistakes my son makes, whether they are from sitting, holding the guitar to actually playing. He is patient, always taking his time and follows up with an emails with the lessons covered and even with suggestions for my son to follow up with during practices. I could not be happier with Stefano as my son's guitar teacher . We are so are so fortunate to have found this young man through takelessons.com. The suggestions from takelessons.com counselor were on point!

About Chris

My name is Chris B. and I've been playing music for most of my life. I started playing guitar when I was in my early teens and, like most kids, just thought it would be cool to play in a band and have fun. Along with my brother Jon (on drums), we immediately started to jam with some neighborhood friends and quickly honed our cover song skills. We then progressed towards writing original music and eventually formed a new band. As time went on, we both started listening to more complex styles of music and spent countless hours improving upon our playing chops to match the advanced techniques of our favorite musicians. The best lesson I've learned is that a musician is never done learning. Once you start believing that you know everything there is to know about your instrument, or ...

Chris is a fantastic teacher. His approach to teaching makes sense and is very effective. My son is 10 and immediately had an excellent rapor with Chris.
Chris explained that he has several different ways of teaching and he tailors it to the child's experience and personality. Listening to him teach is pretty amazing. I want to video tape it and show it to the world. As you can see...we just think he's great!

I love taking lessons with Chris! He has the best way of explaining concepts and theory so that it is easy for someone like me, with no background in music, to understand. He's always professional, on time for lessons, and customizes my lessons based on songs I want to learn. Any student is lucky to have him as a teacher :)

Chris has been giving acoustic guitar lessons to my 10 year old daughter for several months now. He is great at communicating with her and is very encouraging and patient. He chose very relevant songs for her that she really enjoys learning and practicing. Each week he builds on the techniques he taught her previously and we can see real progress! I highly recommend Chris!
