My son was initially unsure of the online aspect of the lesson but has come to respect his teacher, his knowledge, talent and the way he is being taught. I think he can really improve with the techniques being used.

Paul is an amazing musician, teacher and individual. Over the course of a few weeks he specifically evaluated my singing and worked with me in order to improve my singing. With every lesson that I had, I was able to notice real improvement in my voice. Paul also exposed me to a wide array of musical styles, in order to better get to know my voice which I thoroughly enjoyed. He is very encouraging and friendly, from the first lesson he already works to help you feel comfortable.

All in all, by having Paul as an instructor you get to learn from an amazing, accomplished musician who truly knows his field and who also has a great personality while being a great teacher, I think that sums it up pretty well.

I always leave singing lessons with Judy with a huge smile on my face and even more inspiration to sing and get better and better. She is so down to earth and fun as well, and I felt comfortable in the first lesson.
I was nervous that it would be difficult for me to take singing lesson being unable to read music, and not playing an instrument, but that was not the case. Judy's helping me get a feel for reading music and is really patient and encouraging. So much energy flowing during lesson time! I love it. Great instructor and person.

Where should I start...

Judy is so nice and sweet! The moment I walked in her place, I felt warm and welcomed. It is a perfect place to practice singing. Judy definitely knows her thing, and knows how to teach according to students' needs. She's inspiring, and always encourages me to do the best I can. In her classes, I feel I'm making progress every week. It's been a great learning experience! :D

Gregory H.

Astoria, NY

About Gregory

As a younger brother at the age of five, I began studying the piano because my older sister did. After my foundation in music strengthened I fell in love with the trumpet. At first, each note took time to develop and I enjoyed the challenge. The trumpet allowed me to travel all over the Southeast later in life and even to China with a 1940's Radio Show. I enjoyed many top-level bands the kindled my love and passion for good music. I want to share that kindling with my students in a nurturing and guiding situation, just like my teachers gave me. I used to go to lessons and become so motivated and inspired that I thought I could change the world. I always knew that I would want to give back exactly that. As my performance opportunities grew into venues like Churchill ...

Great teacher!

Matthew has been a big help so far in getting me started playing the guitar. We have had 4 lessons so far, and he has taught me several chords, as well as the c major scale. He has been a big help in teaching me to play in time, as well as finger positioning on the guitar.

He is a great teacher. He teaches very good and makes learning easy and fun. I've been playing guitar and trying to teach myself for 15 years but kinda hit the limit but he helped me finally start improving. He corrects my bad habit.

Monica is an outstanding voice teacher. She customized each lesson, from warm ups to repertoire choices, to fit the age, skill level, vocal strengths, and interests of each singer. Watching her work with high school age students is a joy--she loves what she does and the students respond very well to her. They are enthusiastic about going to their lessons and beaming when the lessons are over. Monica brings her strong vocal pedagogy knowledge, along with her own talent and passion for teaching to the voice lesson. She is a wonderful instructor. Highly recommend!

Besides being a fantastic vocalist, Monica is also a great teacher. She is very creative, patient and calm (no drama), but is still disciplined and persistent. She managed to get basic music theory into my thick skull and help me with sight reading, and did not yell at me when I didn't do my homework! The only downside is that she is so talented and well trained that she makes singing look effortless.
