Joe has done a tremendous job with my five-year-old son, who, having ADHD, is generally a challenge for his parents and teachers. Joe has made the lessons fun for my son, who is progressing and engaged at a level I never envisioned.

Incredibly amiable, professional, and talented as a teacher.

As a senior in high school now graduating and transferring into college, I started my lessons with Dimitry in December last year and had to end this summer at the end of the music school's program. Even though my time learning the saxophone was short, Dimitry used my past musical experience to help guide me through the instrument. His lessons did not feel long in any sense of the word, and in fact some two-hour lessons I took to make up missed weeks blew by, as I was constantly engaged by his teachings. During my studies with him I found myself in the presence of a true musician, and this was only further driven home when I saw him play in the Hanover Wind Symphony at the Morristown Community Theater with Stanley Drucker. I would highly recommend Dimitry as an instructor for a student at any level.

After many years as a music educator, clarinetist, saxophonist playing with Army and concert bands, as well as dance bands, I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with Dimitri. Being retired , I made the decision to seriously play clarinet again. His skills, as a musician and teacher have helped me regain my passion for the instrument and ability to play at a high level. I would recommend him most highly.

My Highest Recommendation

As co-prinicpal trumpet and Associate Music Director of the Hanover Wind Symhony it's my pleasure to have worked with Dimitry for over 15 years. Dimitry is an exceptionally gifted and highly respected clarinetist who brings years of global performance experience to his teaching. Polite, patient and well spoken it is a pleasure to listen to him speak about music, no matter what the subject or genre. His passion for his craft is evident from the very first time you meet him. I highly recommend Dimity as a performer and educator!

Rebekah is a thorough and patient violin teacher. When my 7 year old, daughter asked to learn the violin, I was not sure if she had enough of a capacity to focus, which is necessary for playing the violin. Under Rebekah's instruction, she has flourished; she is playing scales, songs, and reading music. After each session, Rebekah reviews with me the homework she has assigned to my daughter. Thanks to Rebekah, my daughter is developing a real appreciation for music, while enjoying the learning process. I highly recommend Rebekah!

I find Mike to be a professional. His understanding of the mechanics of vocalizing is an asset and his easygoing manner of getting it across an asset.

I have been singing w/ bands now for about 15 years and Mike has helped me understand how to maximize my range and power. I would highly recommend Mike for anyone looking to learn to sing for the first time and/or anyone looking to improve on their existing talents.

Mike's been great. I was a nervous new student, and he made me feel really comfortable from the get-go, and structured things so that I was proceeding at my own comfort level. Great input, and a great experience. Thanks Mike!

I've worked with Mike for over a year, he is great for adults who love rock and blues music. He has helped me become a much more confident player. Taking lessons with him was one of the best moves I could have made.

Monica G.

Madison, NJ

About Monica

I'm a performing artist and music teacher. I received my Bachelors and Masters degree in music at Boston's New England Conservatory, where I was a member of the jazz, classical, and third-stream departments. I also spent 8 years in Berlin, Germany, sing opera and musical theater. I've always enjoyed working with kids; especially introducing them to music through piano, language, movement, role-playing, and singing. But I also thrive teaching adults; whether it be professional singers looking for some tips, or passionate hobby singers looking to impress their friends at the next karaoke party. Flute is my first instrument, so definitely get in touch with me if you want to take your playing to the next level!

Monica has been teaching my 8 year old daughter for nearly a year with enthusiasm and drive. She has a very friendly but also rigorous way of teaching piano as well as music theory, reading and improvisation. She is reliable and always on time and the piano lesson has become a highlight of the week. I would certainly recommend Monica to my friends!

Monica taught piano to my (very active) 7 yr old son. She is a wonderful teacher; my son enjoyed each lesson and learned a great deal. Monica even had him writing his own short compositions. Moreover, Monica engaged him on his own level and understood he wasn't always going to sit perfectly and be quiet - she was silly with him sometimes and made him laugh and have fun while he was learning.
She was extremely reliable and always on time for the lessons. In short, Monica is terrific and I highly recommend her.

Why Are There Different Violin Sizes, and Why Does it Matter?

One of the main concerns that violin students and their parents typically have is purchasing the right-sized violin.
