Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

My son has loved taking lessons with Linda. She is setting just the right pace with him. She is flexible given his strengths and weaknesses. He was genuinely disappointed when I told him he couldn't go to lessons this week because of a family commitment. Can't recommend highly enough!

very comfortable and satisfying first lesson.

Linda was great! As an adult beginner with the cello she made the lesson enjoyable and easy to follow. She adjusted quickly for where I knew a little and where I knew nothing. Highly recommend her!

I emphasize a physically relaxed and technically accurate approach to cello playing so that students are free to create music without limitations or physical discomfort.
Though playing an instrument takes hard work, it should be a fun and enjoyable experience too! We will work together to ensure that you are learning pieces that interest you and inspire you to reach the next level. By the end of each lesson you will know what to work on for the week and exactly how to practice in order to achieve the most effective results.

Students will learn the fundamentals of music theory and history while focusing on improving their technical facility on the cello. Students also work towards building their comfort with the instrument by practicing increasingly complex exercises and repertoire.

Lessons will be highly interactive and geared towards your personal goals as an aspiring cellist.

Deno
Laura is a wonderful cello teacher. Our daughter (10 y.o.) has been playing cello for 2 years. We just moved to NYC and needed a cello teacher. We found Laura and our daughter just had her first lesson with Laura. They reviewed skills, practiced pieces, ear training and Laura provided appropriate level workbooks at the end for home practice. Our daughter said "I can't wait to work with Laura again next week." Proof enough for us.
Amy
Laura is a great cello teacher! She is experienced, knowledgable, and has an amazing positive energy in our lessons. Her expectations are high yet realistic, and I very much enjoying learning the cello with her. I highly recommend Laura as a teacher!

I have been playing various types of organs since I was 12 years old. Each organ is different and there are many different styles of organs and keyboards. Each one can create a unique sound that makes creating music a fun and entertaining experience. I enjoy teaching people how to make music using their talents the best way they can. Not everyone is an expert but everyone can make music.

About James

How exciting that you are thinking about learning to play the piano!!! One of my greatest joys in life has been sharing my gift of music with others, especially in teaching piano lessons. I began playing piano when I was 10 years old and by the age of 12 I was playing in my local church. I'm sur

Excellent teacher, very patient.
Lynda
Have had one lesson so far with James. Seems competent and sensitive to what you want to do with your goals. Really too early for me to tell for sure.
Pat
Jim is a great teacher, he makes you feel like you are really doing good playing the piano.
There is no pressure and he never is in a bad mood!
If you are having trouble with a certain part of a lesson, he repeats what is being taught in a totally different way.
He even knows what you are doing wrong and helps you correct that problem. Always in a level voice as he understands.
I am a Senior student and have never taken music lessons before. I am very pleased with Jim’s teaching methods.
This your chance to learn something new and beautiful and be proud of yourself. I recommend these lessons totally!
