I have been teaching cello to students of all ages for over six years. I aim to tailor my teaching plans to each student’s unique goals and learning habits. I structure my lessons so that students learn and play what they enjoy, while also building a strong foundation of fundamental cello technique.

I recently graduated with a B.M. in cello performance from the Juilliard School. I have over six years of private teaching experience with beginner and intermediate cellists. I was also the co-founder and former director of the Wilton and Congers Roots of Music Camps, was on the faculty at The Cello

Magic isn't just a mystery or puzzle to be figured out...Its a performing art (actually one of the variety arts) that designed to entertain. But most importantly, it should be FUN: a delight to both learn & master!

What type of magic would you like to perform for your friends & family? Stage or platform magic (sometimes called Parlor or Cabaret)? Mentalism or mind-reading? How about close-up magic (like cards & coins): Is that your thing? No matter what kind of magic we choose to explore, I've got whole library of teaching references & secret resources (all stowed away in my magic room) to share with you.

I'm Jeff, my stage name is "Mr. Jeffo" and I specialize in entertaining children & families with my own brand of magic and storytelling. I've been performing magic as a part-time pro for decades now, starting out with birthday party shows as a teen, and working my way up to performing corporate meetings, school shows, gatherings and special events over the past 15 years.

Jeff has been providing great instruction in a comfortable environment. Each class Jeff is prepared with a list of things we are going to go over, and we review things from the previous week. He will show you how to make or bring props that you may not have and will let you try them out to make sure the trick works for your routine. After each class he has emailed me links to videos that provide alternate explanations as well as some more advanced techniques of things we may not have gone over. For me, in person learning works a lot better than Zoom and Jeff makes the classes both fun and instructional. The 1-1 in person environment he has will really help you excel your abilities. Each class you leave with at least a few tricks that you can start working on immediately. I would highly recommend Jeff!

I have been playing and studying Drum Set for ten years and am a self taught Conga player for more than a year now.

I am well versed in many different styles of music including but not limited to Jazz, Funk, Rock, Afro-Cuban, and some Brazilian music.

I love teaching students new to the Drums and am very confident in my ability to articulate and convey the necessary technical and learning skills which will make students self-sufficient in their own musical ability and studies.

For students who have already become comfortable behind a Drum Set, I offer my own experience in Jazz and Latin Music studies. I can set students who wish to explore or begin their journey into Jazz music on the right path.

About John

Hello! My name is J.J. and I'm very excited to be your Drum teacher! I am 27 years old and have been playing and studying the Drum Set since my junior year of high school in 2011. I have worked in and around Dutchess County, NY since 2016 as a Jazz sideman and as a member of a couple local Fun

I love my drum lessons with J.J.! He not only ensures that I'm practicing the concepts correctly but also that I'm playing in a way that's healthy and sustainable for the long term. You can tell that he's truly passionate about playing drums and it left me wanting to immediately go practice what we had learned after the lesson. An all-around amazing instructor and genuinely friendly and personable guy. Would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn drums!

For acoustic guitar the first thing I do when I meet a student is to interview the student and find out why they want to learn how to play the guitar and what are some of their goals. Then I find out what style of music they would like to learn. I have the student come up with ten songs they would like to learn. I take this information and structure future guitar lessons around the essential elements of these songs. I design each lesson to teach the specific skills required to learn those songs. I create an organized binder guitar workbook and having a teaching degree I create all of the lessons to meet each students individual needs that include lessons on theory, technique, chords, rhythm, scales, arpeggios, songs, song form, and exercises etc. I use a color coded method to teach scales, chords and theory that I created that help students not only understand scales but also they are able to see visually where chords come from. I break down each song into easy digestible parts so ...

I only have high accolades for David. I've learned more from David in the mere 5 lessons then I learned in a years worth of lessons in the past. His method of teaching is perfect with the right amount of homework. He customizes the lesson for the type of music I ultimately want to play with a good balance of theory and practical lessons to get me there. Bravo!!!

My 11 yr old daughter has absolutely loved working with Monica and has shown tremendous improvement over the last few months. If you aren't sure what teacher to choose, give her a try. I think you'll like her too!
Albert F.
Monica has been a wonderful teacher. I appreciate that the experience has been very collaborative. She will teach a technique and ask if it feels right or sounds right to you and to test it out for a week and if that's not working for you well try a different approach, So it's more trial and error than there is one way to sing. And I think having some control and agency over your vocal journey leads to a more confident and positive experience. Lessons with Monica have been very open and fun. I feel like I have progressed at a faster rate in the past 3 months working with her than the past 5 years I have been trying to improve my voice. And I am very curious and excited about how much further I'll grow in the future with Monica's assistance.

I love playing and teaching the violin, and I'm so excited to share my experience with you! I have over a decade of experience with students of all backgrounds and experience levels. My time at The Juilliard School has prepared me well for whatever challenge you would like to take on together. Whether that is growing your love of the instrument, learning a new piece, finding better practice skills, or audition preparation.

Congratulations on taking an amazing first step into learning the violin, and I look forward to meeting you in our first lesson.

Top 5 Wildest Method Acting Techniques in Hollywood History

If you've ever watched an actor disappear into their role, shedding genuine tears or adopting mannerisms that aren't their own, then you've seen method acting techniques in action.
