Learning the Ins and Outs of Guitar Playing

I must say that I am please with Jamie's technique and patience with me. Jamie is very knowledgable and shares some of his secrets (not shortcuts mind you) that help in learning to master the acoustic guitar. He leaves you with valuable lessons and exercises that can do nothing but improve on how you play the guitar. I'm looking forward to continuing my lessons with Jamie.

Had an excellent initial discussion with my instructor, Edwin, today. It was big picture but at the same time Edwin’s comments & suggestions gave me confidence in his command of the art (engineering, arrangement, composition & structure, and playing techniques), all the things I’m going to need help with to take my musical projects to another level.
Mike
Edwin is chill, flexible, and conveys a ton of relevant practice tips every lesson.
Vic
I've had 4 lessons with Edwin so far and have already made a lot of good progress, by learning songs and theory and strumming patterns and fingerpicking. Edwin has a genuine interest in my improvement.

I've played guitar since I was only eight years old (over 20 years!) in many different bands, styles, and genres. I played in a traditional Irish ensemble when I was in college and have since picked up banjo, mandolin, fiddle, harmonica, and bodhran (Irish hand drum). I've also helped teach group violin classes in music programs in Orlando, FL and NYC. I love playing and teaching bluegrass music, it's a special challenge both for me and the students!

Carolyn has and is exactly what I was looking for in a voice coach. Like me, her interests in the performing arts are broad. I felt both excited and comfortable with her. She is professional and easy to talk to. I can sense strongly that Carolyn is full of love and compassion. I am so excited for the next lesson! Here's to the new horizon and everything in between! :) Thank you Carolyn for reassuring me that my decision to switch careers was a wise decision indeed. Dance forward.

My first lesson with Carolyn was very positive. She quickly assessed where I was and started from that point so we didn't waste time. She showed great passion for songwriting and a genuine interest in my development.

I am a Grammy nominated recording and touring artist who has been teaching beginning- advanced piano accordion and diatonic button accordion lessons for over 20 years. I combine my formal music education and real world performing experiences cross numerous genres with compassion and drive to help you achieve your musical goals. Whether your aim is to enter the professional gigging world, restart after a hiatus for other life goals/ responsibilities or completely start from scratch- I work with my students to provide the right balance of work push, relating to your life and having fun in the process.

I have extensive experience in a myriad of ethnic folk styles and polkas, in addition to pop, rock, country, jazz and classical genres with artists as diverse as Jack Black, Guy Klucevsek, Post Modern Jukebox, Dany Brillant, Brave Combo and Canada's Polka King- Walter Ostanek.

"My 6 year old daughter took her first piano lesson at our neighborhood music store. The store owner told me that the piano teacher makes all the difference in the child's tendency to like the instrument and stick with the lessons. As it turned out, after only 3 lessons with the teacher at this music studio, my daughter told me that she did not like piano and was not learning anything. I told her that if we try another teacher and she still does not like piano, we can be done with it.

We found Joan, and after the first lesson with Joan, my daughter wanted more. She wanted to play piano at home, she wanted to do well, she enjoyed the music she made. Joan is a magician with music and children!

Going through this experience, I can say that Joan is an incredible music teacher, understands children and is able to draw that natural talent and desire out of them. We feel incredibly blessed to have found Joan and look forward to the next steps in our piano learning journey with her."

"Guitar lessons with Ahmad were my weekly retreat from a hectic workweek. Ahmad is super patient with you every step of the way. Somehow he manages to urge you to practice (something I have trouble with) without being naggy or making you feel guilty. He listens to your concerns and musical tastes and incorporates them into each lesson.

He lets you pick the genre and even songs that you'd like to play. His classical training means that you get experience in sight reading music and musical theory. I'm a bit of weird bird that I like blues and punk rock. He taught me the basics in both so I can have a great time just jamming out with him or with some of my talented friends.

Overall, if you're looking to invest some money in lessons, Ahmad is the place to go."

How Long Does it Take to Learn Drums?

How long does it take to learn drums? Find out the reality in this guest post by Seattle, WA drum teacher Mason L... Many of my new drum students ask me this question a few weeks into their lessons: “How long does it take to learn the drums?” The answer to that question depends on what you’re trying to get out of drumming. If you want to master a few songs and beats, it might take a couple months; if you want to be reliable and confident enough to be in a band, it might take a year …

How To Hum: Sound Vibration Basics For Singers

One of the funniest memories I have of my first choir experience was learning how to hum in a choir. I thought it was a little ridiculous as a 4th grader because I thought I already knew how to hum, since I was doing it all the time. However, your casual humming while you work a-la Snow White (for those of us who prefer it over whistling) is in fact, completely different from humming as an actual singer. See, my beloved chorus teacher had us open our mouths as wide as we could, and then clos …
