Working with kids requires the ability to use analogies and really understand the child that you are working with. Our experience with Adam has convinced me that he posses those qualities. He is also punctual and consistent. As the guy footing the bill, I appreciate.
We plan on continuing our relationship with Adam.

Robert H.

Cedar Knolls, NJ

About Robert

I started playing guitar at age 11, taking lessons at the local music studio in Hackensack, NJ. I became heavily influenced by The Beatles after hearing their music and as a teenager played in local rock groups, having some success being in the bands Jona's Ark and The Yorkshire Pudding, opening for artists Buddy Guy and Junior Wells, John Mayall and backing up Gary U.S. Bonds. I started playing piano at 19 when I took a group piano class in college. I attended Berklee College of Music and studied guitar with Bill Leavitt and Pat Metheny. That's where I started learning about all the great jazz artists from Duke Ellington to Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and Wes Montgomery to name a few. While at Berklee I also developed a love of the classical guitar and it's repertoire. After Berklee, I

Mr. Rob has been teaching my 6 yrs. old son piano for a few months at our home. He is reliable, patient, and an effective teacher. In a relatively short time, we were impressed at the progress our son had made. Our little one keeps a manuscript book with his practice assignments and has been able to play recognizable notes from children's songs with both hands. The 30 min. sessions are perfect for this age and go by both quickly and enjoyably. We are looking forward to more sessions and continued growth.

Reliable, patient, clear and "fun"

Robert has been reliable and patient with our 12 year old. I asked her opinion for this review and she said, "He shows me exactly what to do and makes it fun. I wish he taught my language arts class."

Rob does a great job understanding my objectives. He is always well prepared and his ability to create lessons that are enjoyable keeps me enthusiastic about playing the guitar. Starting from ground zero,I am not only learning how to play an instrument but I am learning how to read music as well.

Dominic M.

Middlesex, NJ

About Dominic

Dominic M., America’s Tenor, has been singing in one form or another since the age of four. As a young man, Dominic began honing his skills of singing and acting through Community Theater. His voice and career were forever changed when vocal coach and mentor, Suzanne Ferris-Hammer introduced him to the great voice of Mario Lanza. From the moment Dominic heard the voice of Mario Lanza, he began to fashion his own voice in that image. Dominic continued to expand his career by developing his own show, which includes the songs of Mario Lanza in their original keys. These shows were held in some of the finest NYC Cabarets such as Don’t Tell Mama, Duplex Café, Danny’s Skylight Café, Café 44, and Eighty Eights. He has also performed these shows at The New Palace of the Performing Arts of New

I find Mike to be a professional. His understanding of the mechanics of vocalizing is an asset and his easygoing manner of getting it across an asset.

I have been singing w/ bands now for about 15 years and Mike has helped me understand how to maximize my range and power. I would highly recommend Mike for anyone looking to learn to sing for the first time and/or anyone looking to improve on their existing talents.

Mike's been great. I was a nervous new student, and he made me feel really comfortable from the get-go, and structured things so that I was proceeding at my own comfort level. Great input, and a great experience. Thanks Mike!

I've worked with Mike for over a year, he is great for adults who love rock and blues music. He has helped me become a much more confident player. Taking lessons with him was one of the best moves I could have made.

Monica G.

Madison, NJ

About Monica

I'm a performing artist and music teacher. I received my Bachelors and Masters degree in music at Boston's New England Conservatory, where I was a member of the jazz, classical, and third-stream departments. I also spent 8 years in Berlin, Germany, sing opera and musical theater. I've always enjoyed working with kids; especially introducing them to music through piano, language, movement, role-playing, and singing. But I also thrive teaching adults; whether it be professional singers looking for some tips, or passionate hobby singers looking to impress their friends at the next karaoke party. Flute is my first instrument, so definitely get in touch with me if you want to take your playing to the next level!

Monica has been teaching my 8 year old daughter for nearly a year with enthusiasm and drive. She has a very friendly but also rigorous way of teaching piano as well as music theory, reading and improvisation. She is reliable and always on time and the piano lesson has become a highlight of the week. I would certainly recommend Monica to my friends!

Monica taught piano to my (very active) 7 yr old son. She is a wonderful teacher; my son enjoyed each lesson and learned a great deal. Monica even had him writing his own short compositions. Moreover, Monica engaged him on his own level and understood he wasn't always going to sit perfectly and be quiet - she was silly with him sometimes and made him laugh and have fun while he was learning.
She was extremely reliable and always on time for the lessons. In short, Monica is terrific and I highly recommend her.
