There are several aspects to performance that I can help a guitarist with. The chief one is solo performance and improvisation which I have taught many students even kids in school bands who need to improvise in the jazz band and don't know how. Another aspect is how to use a guitar amp properly at higher show/concert volumes as far as tone settings and use of effects. Makes a huge difference when you know the insider "secrets". So you can even bring your amp for an "amp lesson".

Pete is the best instructor that I have ever had. He is the only person I ever had that was able to explain things in a way that I could understand. I have taken lessons from other people and was not able to learn anything.

I took 5 lessons with Ed, very great instructor. I learned a lot in those few lessons. He helped with with my pitch and with my accent that I had to prepare for an audition. With his help I was accepted into my high school’s A cappella group “Madrigals” and overall I would recommend. We made it work and tried to make the best out of the situation. Great experience:)
Michael Y.
My kids thoroughly enjoyed lessons with Ed (both guitar and piano). Lessons started with my 7yo and when his brother turned 4yo, he started as well.

Jon is an awesome instructor. I was a beginner at age 50, and he never made me feel insecure. He met me at my level, and has helped me with songs I wanted to learn. I highly recommend Jon.

From my experience auditioning and performing classical singing, piano, theatre, musical theatre, and dance as well as sitting on the other side of the audition panel and in the audience, I am well equipped to help with music performance. Through these experiences I have learned that performing music on any instrument or ensemble setting requires a similar mindset and preparation tactic. This involves polishing the repertoire to maximize confidence as well as using tools to overcome nerves to enjoy the process of performing music. Any musician is welcome!

About Isabel

Music is my great passion, and I have recently received my Master’s degree in classical vocal performance at the Mannes School of Music. Well-versed in many musical genres, I have performed in opera, recital, musical theatre, choir and piano performances and competitions in the US as well as intern

Isabel is an EXCELLENT instructor who tailors her lessons to your individual goals. She is kind, patient, and is essentially an oracle about singing. Every lesson, I learn something new or taught a new technique on how to improve my performance. I look forward to every lesson and have the utmost confidence that she can train me to become the singer I have always wanted to be.
Ariana T.
I would recommend Isabel to absolutely anyone looking to take voice lessons! I appreciate her knowledge of technique and vocal pedagogy, and am thankful for her encouragement and strategies for success. I enjoy my lessons and learn so much from Isabel each week, that it feels like my lessons are in person!
Tilly H.
Isabel is amazing!! She is so nice and encouraging while still teaching you new things! I would recommend her if you are starting out or even if you have been taking voice lessons for years. She is great for people doing Musical style singing! If you have the chance to work with her, take it!

"Arrica has been such a wonderful teacher for my 11-year-old daughter. (She was 9 when she started with Arrica.) Our girl has a lot of raw talent but needed some good instruction that wasn't too formal. Africa is just the right blend of traditional singing technique and fun rock-n-roll, record your own music on Garage band. We love her!"
