Suzette R. Monsey, NY

About Suzette

I started taking piano lessons when I was 4 and then learned the clarinet and played in the band in middle school. In high school I started playing the viola in the orchestra while still playing in the band. I had the best of all music worlds! In college I played in many school and community orchestras in places like Carnegie Recital Hall and even with the NY Philharmonic Orchestra! Orchestral and Chamber Music are my forte. I have been a string orchestra conductor for 10 years and love to put on a show to be remembered. My students have played at various day cares, nursing homes and shopping malls. We were even on the local Channel 12 News! *** Lesson Details *** A good foundation and a thorough knowledge of the basics will help you get the most out of your instrument. We ...

Excellent Teacher

Mrs. Rivera gave my son private cello lessons every Saturday morning for several months. She always arrived on time and was always full of energy. Mrs. Rivera made sure that he understood the material and gave him several helpful tips. He did very well in his music classes. Her energy is contagious. My daughter would attend my sons lessons and it peaked her interest to the point where she is now playing the violin. Mrs. Rivera is a great teacher, she is patient, punctual and personable. You won't be disappointed.
Christina M. Haskell, NJ

About Christina

Greetings! My name is Christina and I am a recent Rutgers University graduate with a double major in both music and economics. I have had over 12 years of private training in piano, with additional experience in violin, orchestra, choir and various performance-related events. Over the years I have studied with numerous pianists and incorporated many different methods and techniques that have greatly influenced my own teaching. I have been teaching music lessons to both children and adults since high school, and am comfortable teaching any age. I do believe that a solid foundation in any instrument begins with music theory, and it is something I incorporate little by little into each lesson; however, it is very important to me that the learning process be enjoyable, and I strive to ...

I'm an older student who always wanted to take piano lessons but never could (until now). Christina was worth the wait. She challenges me just enough so that I'm eager to practice, so I look forward to my piano lesson all week. My daughters are even playing again and piano music has once again filled our house. Wonderful!

My review is basically the same as the one below - my son is a little slow at guitar and Nelson is SO patient with him. You can tell he loves music and he really enjoys the teaching process. What a great find.

I have taken 8 lessons with Nelson and I'm very happy with him as my teacher. He is an accomplished guitarist, but more importantly, as a teacher he's very patient and allows me to learn at my own pace (which is slow). I would recommend him to anyone wishing to learn to play the guitar.

After four months of lessons it's easy for me to say with confidence that we chose a great teacher in Stefano. He is very professional in his approach to teaching my 12 year old daughter Acoustic Guitar. He is always friendly, polite and takes his job seriously. He takes a structured approach and I am so glad we chose him as our Instructor.

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!
