Judy is very compassionate, kind, and talented. She has such a positive way of uplifting and instilling confidence in her students. My daughter recently started taking lessons with Judy and is always so excited to see her. She is always looking forward to her next singing lesson. We are both very happy :)

Highly recommended.

Judy is not only an incredible teacher but a master herself in regards to her craft. I studied with her for eight years and it is her wonderful balance of knowledge, encouragement, personality, and technique that pushes her students to develop to the best of their ability. She is such a well rounded teacher who embraces her student's interests and still maintains a structured lesson plan in regards to musicianship and vocal technique. I can't recommend her enough!

I learned so much from Judy!

Judy Tomsko is the best voice teacher I've ever had - I learned so much about my vocal potential and music theory with her. She is such a sweet and caring person, which made it an amazing environment to learn and grow. I can genuinely say that Judy taught me so much of what I know today about vocals and she is a great mentor and friend. I highly recommend that you take lessons with her!

Nicole is a very patient,caring and understanding teacher. She recognizes the student's strong points while working to correct and strengthen the student's weaker points. All this is done with a smiling and cheerful disposition.I am very lucky to have found Nicole as a piano teacher for my 8 year old granddaughter. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a talented yet patient and caring teacher.

About John

I started playing drums in my parents' basement when I was 9 years old. It was just me, a stereo, and a bunch of cardboard boxes I made into my first drumset. Every day, I listened to to my favorite songs over and over again to figure out how to play them. To me, there was nothing more awesome in the world than music. Since then my musical journey has taken me far and wide. I've studied percussion and composition with world class teachers, toured Europe, composed music for commercials, co-written award winning songs, and performed with a variety of artists at such venues as the Hard Rock Cafe, BB King's, World Cafe, 55 Bar, The Living Room, The Bitter End, Shrine, Rockwood Music Hall, and many others. And the one thing that hasn't changed? I'm still totally in awe of it all. These ...

John is a very good piano teacher. He challenges me and is not strict. He has been teaching me about chords and he is making sure that I understand it every step of the way. As we have been going on, we have been playing tougher and tougher pieces while piano is getting easier and easier for me.
(From: Abraham, 11 yrs old, a student of John since Oct. 2013)

He's a great piano teacher. John knows what to do every time I have a song. He knows things if I don't know the answer. He describes the answer to make me understand.

Excellent teacher

John is a fantastic teacher. He is very patient with my 12 year old, knows how to explain things to him and always makes the lessons a lot of fun even though my son is not always easy to deal with. We have stuck with John for more then two years now and we are happy he has stuck with us. Thanks to him, my son has made significant progress with the piano, the basics of music theory and general musical appreciation.

Besides being a fantastic vocalist, Monica is also a great teacher. She is very creative, patient and calm (no drama), but is still disciplined and persistent. She managed to get basic music theory into my thick skull and help me with sight reading, and did not yell at me when I didn't do my homework! The only downside is that she is so talented and well trained that she makes singing look effortless.

Monica is such a fantastic teacher. She is one of those people who really listens to the needs of the student, and gives her all at every lesson. Through her knowledge and experience, Monica has rebuilt my voice and my confidence from the bottom up. I highly recommend working with her!

About Michelle

Every student is unique, and I tailor my lessons to best meet their individual needs. It is important to me that students learn through lessons that are insightful, interactive and fun! :) I began teaching in 1999 and have students of all ages and experience levels. Most recently a student of mine booked a contract for the national tour of "A Christmas Story!" In addition to being a voice and piano teacher, I am also a professional performing artist, singing on stages both in NYC and all over the world. I have a graduate degree in music from the Peabody Conservatory. My musical training began in 1982 and has encompassed voice, flute and piano. I am happy to discuss pricing packages and the possibility of having lessons in your own home, as well as any additional scheduling ...

I can't say enough good things about Michelle! I've taken voice lessons for years, but since graduating college any formal study had fallen by the wayside. Then a friend asked me to sing in her wedding and I needed help getting ready. In just two months, Michelle helped me get out of my head and into my body in a way that I hadn't been able to get to before. Even though Michelle was helping me prepare specific pieces, her strategies and insight helped me to re-solidify my foundation for how I sing. With Michelle, I've been able to find a freedom and ease in my voice that hadn't been able to achieve before. She's skilled and effective, and just a lovely person on top of it all!

Michelle and I worked together on the National Tour of Oliver. When not on stage or traveling, we spent our hours talking vocal technique and working together on exercises conducted by Michelle. I was especially impressed by Michelle's ability to speak my language when it came to accessing my voice. She used her Alexander Technique training to get me out of my head allowing me to trust my own voice. The vocal freedom I was able to access with Michelle was so valuable and I am excited to work with her again.

About Simona

My name is Simona and I am a passionate, determined young flutist. I recently graduated with honor from University of Central Arkansas with Bachelor Degree in Music Performance with flute. In August, 2014 I moved to New York City to pursue a Master Degree in Music Performance; I love teaching and spreading my love for the music to my students, as much as I adore playing my flute. I love using the talent given me from God to connect people to the magic of the music and help them achieve their musical goals. I have had the opportunity to perform in many venues, different cities in United States and Europe and there is no greater joy to me than playing music and seeing the happiness in people's eyes. I have also experienced teaching in different settings, such as, groups, as well as private ...

My daughter has had only two lessons with Simona but the benefit is easy to see. There is a passion for excellence that is being instilled but keeping the lessons fun. This is hard to accomplish but Simona is doing it. She has been very cooperative and helpful in scheduling lessons. It has been a pleasure so far and I look forward to great reviews in the future. I highly recommend this teacher!
