Ark is an awesome teacher for my 8 and 6 year olds. He is patient, thorough, consistent, and manages to keep their attention! I have noticed my kids are more interested in music, and have been progressive more quickly with Ark. Great teacher!

The first lesson was successful. My particular background in piano is unique, and my needs are atypical as well. I thought Thomas assessed my abilities, lack of abilities, and goals well and quickly. He started me on a different perspective on looking at music (reading the staff) that seems very helpful. I'm encouraged.

I needed last minute coaching for an upcoming audition and was feeling unprepared and frazzled. Chelsea easily knew what I needed. She made recommendations, was wonderfully engaging, and her insight and ear highlighted some important tweaks that I would have overlooked in my haste to prepare. After just one session I felt clearer, calmer, and considerably more confident. Bonus: Chelsea is incredibly kind, fun to work with and makes you feel you already know one another. Chelsea has my highest recommendation

"Six words describe Cindy. I WISH I DISCOVERED HER SOONER! She is exactly what I was looking for in a music theory teacher for my son. The chemistry between them is fantastic. She customizes the lesson to my son's needs. I have seen a major difference in a short period of time, with his sight reading, playing by ear, playing scales and chords. I would definitely recommend her and will be taking lessons as long as she is teaching."

"David is awesome! I began lessons with him because i was not satisfied with the music theory classes at the school i am enrolled in, as well as the classes did not accommodate well to my learning differences. David not only has endless knowledge of music theory but also has shown me tools and helpful methods for studying music. I highly recommend taking lessons from David if you are either a beginner or you are at a higher level and would like to expand your knowledge of music theory."

"I studied music theory with Brad my senior year of high school, and it was the best decision I could have made! Brad fully prepared me for college-level theory at a conservatory, and I have excelled as a performer because of the great theory background Brad provided me with. He knows music theory inside and out, and he is able to adapt his teaching skills for any student. Thanks for all your help, Brad!

Heidi is an awesome music teacher with great patience and love. She is very inspiring. She helps me to build my confidence and love for music when I felt upset with my voice. She is willing to walk extra miles with her student. Whenever I send her my practice record, she always encourage me and give me helpful suggestions to beautify my songs even after class. Also, I am from China, she is very patient when communicating with me. She loves teaching international students. To me, she is not only a music teacher, but a loving friend."

"It has been a few years since our daughter, Michaela, took piano and music theory classes from Howard Richman. However, hardly a day goes by when she is not using something that she has learned from him. Whether she is writing a song, composing music, producing a track, playing the piano, singing, rehearsing, performing, etc…it always involves some aspect of her lessons with Howard. She is always referencing material from her classes with him. The enjoyment and confidence that Howard instills in his students, through his methods of teaching, truly must last a lifetime. Going to Howard was one of the best decisions that we have made regarding Michaela's career. In fact, as it turns out, it was a life changing experience for her. Needless to say, we have the very highest recommendation for Howard Richman."

"When I was third trumpet Dr D was the Drum Major. Our marching and field show bands under NY legend David Bournazian won many local and state competitions. I was just happy to be part of it, but Dr. D was leading it. He has deep knowledge of music theory and is equally expert at improvisation. His ability to communicate theory to beginners or higher level learners is amazing. He has the unique skill of being able to make complex concepts seem simple with illustrative examples until you find yourself starting to 'get it'. Highly recommended."
