So much more than a teacher - Ray has become a mentor to my daughter. He not only teaches her the technics of reading and performing music, but encourages her to grow professionally. Most importantly, his excitement and love of music make the lessons so much fun - I hear the (laughing and) improvement in her voice during every lesson.

I would highly recommend Jonathan as a music teacher. Jonathan is absolutely passionate about music, which is evident by his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. He is very patient with my five year old and encourages her to get her very best effort. Jonathan customizes the music and lessons for my daughter’s skill level while at the same time provides challenges to keep the learning process interesting. In a short period of time, my daughter's keyboard playing abilities have dramatically increased. I am very grateful to Jonathan for making learning fun for my daughter, who always looks forward to her lessons!

Jonathan has made a great impression with my son. He displays a great combination of patience and encouragement with Nick. I have seen an improvement in his trumpet skills as well as his confidence.

Great learning experience with Eric.

I can't say enough good things about Earl's instruction. He's extremely knowledgeable and talented and yet responsive, inspiring, and kind. Rather than applying a narrow and rigid approach to teaching, lessons are built around my abilities and interests and he has taught me new ways of looking at music and playing guitar. I feel very fortunate to be one of his students.

"I had the pleasure of studying with Anna throughout my masters program at NYU. She pushed me as a singer/performer each week during my lessons, through attention to detail in pitch, rhythm, memorization, dramatic circumstances, and vocal freedom. I came to her stuck vocally, and she helped me find a “free” sound within my voice. I was able to move more air, transition through registers without large shifts or drops, and I’m so thankful for her guidance. She is able to look at your voice objectively, and see where you are each lesson. Because we as singers are connected physically to our instrument, sometimes my days would get the best of me and affect me emotionally and she would help me use it or help me work through it during lessons. I love my voice and how it has grown. I HIGHLY recommend starting your vocal journey with her."
