A great experience!

I highly recommend Marni for voice lessons. She is an extremely talented teacher in both the mechanics and creative aspects of singing. Often, she explains concepts to me in a visual manner because it is familiar to me (I have experience in visual art). I'm amazed at how much I've improved my vocal range/quality in a short time, and how much more comfortable I feel when I sing (both physical comfort and improved confidence). Marni is a gifted artist who will help you find your unique singing voice.

Amazing Voice Teacher!

Peter really opened up my voice and really helped me grow into my voice as a singer. It was night and day and his technique is easy to learn and adapt. He works with your voice and helps it become better overall and is really supportive. I'm grateful for what I learned from him and I still use his techniques everyday!

Best thing to happen to my voice

Peter has been the best thing to ever happen to my voice. I started studying with Peter freshman year of college and I still see him regularly 6 years later. He took my completely untrained voice and helped me find, not only technique but also confidence in myself and my abilities. If it weren't for him I would not be pursuing musical theatre as a career. I would also not be booking jobs professionally. I owe my current and future musical theatre career to him. GO SING WITH HIM!!!

A Superb and Supportive Teacher!

Peter is by far the best voice teacher I ever had. I have a very multi-faceted personality and very multi-faceted voice. I was struggling to find my true voice after being told I was everything from a mezzo to a coloratura soprano. Unlike some teachers who heard a certain part of my voice and were determined to place me in a box based only that one part, Peter would always tell me to let my voice do what it wants to do. I have never felt like he ever took offense if I decided something I was working on was not right for me. He has only ever been completely open and supportive if I wanted to try something. He is the first teacher who let me go to my extremes, just to touch upon all the colors of my voice, and then he helps me find balance and settle into my true voice.

My voice is still a work in progress, but he has helped me so much, with his expert knowledge of vocal production and how the body can affect the sound being produced, with his open, "let's try it" energy but also with the right amount of guidance so that I'm not just floating all over the place. He has guided me to quite a few of the best pieces I have ever sung because of his incredible intuition about what would suit my voice. He is well-versed in repertoire and he is a very strong pianist.

He's also been supportive in other ways, suggesting books on auditioning and breathing, and sharing articles about the voice and about physical health as well (the winter can be hard on a voice!). He's by far just the best teacher I have ever had, and worth every single penny! There aren't enough words to show how much I consider Peter to be an all-around amazing teacher.

Devin is a great teacher. He gave me a lesson on elementary music theory in a way I've never learned it. He makes complex material very accessible, and advanced my learning greatly. I look forward to many more lessons with Devin.

I highly recommend , if you are interested in developing your guitar skills and/ or expanding your knowledge of music theory , to schedule an appointment with Devin for a lesson . I came from my native Brazil to study jazz at an american college and he patiently introduced me to jazz music . I not only was able to succeed in my jazz ensemble classes with straight A's , but I also got prepared to audition successfully to universities and will be completing my bachelors degree in music soon. And I thank Devin for that .

Ben G.

New York, NY

About Ben

I am a native New Yorker who has been a professional, internationally performing, DJ for over 20 years. And I have been teaching other professional DJs almost as long. I am not a turntablist. I do not teach fancy scratching. I am a mix/blend DJ. I am very strong at teaching beginners and helping more advanced students to take their deejaying to the next level. I have a huge vinyl collection and I am primarily a vinyl DJ as a performer, but I am well-versed in all the DJ technology, from computer-based platforms, to CD-Js, to controllers. I do not offer lessons shorter than an hour because I think anything shorter is not long enough and does a disservice to the student. I charge more because you get your money's worth. I am happy to provide testimonials from past students.

I can count my DJ lessons with Benjamin as some of the most rewarding, exciting, and inspiring experiences that I have had in my short, young life.
His skill, generosity and unfailing patience knows no bounds.
His knowledge of MUSIC - sonically and historically - is quite astounding.
Nothing is impossible or unachievable under his guidance; with a little time and effort put in.
I am one of the most impatient and easily frustrated students that any teacher could have the displeasure of coming across, but Ben always managed to encourage and help keep me going, stay motivated, and practice regularly - to great effect.
Perhaps the most important thing I have learned from my lessons with Ben is that a DJ who makes no mistakes is a DJ who is not taking enough risks. "There is no safe road to Paradise".

DJing · In studio
I have been DJ-ing for about five years on CD-Js (disco, funk, boogie, Afro-Latin) and felt the need to step up my game and make a fresh start with vinyl. Thus, I bought the equipment and a sufficient amount of records and started practicing. However after a few months I realized that my progress was too slow and that I was missing the basics (vinyl is no joke). After hearing DJ Scribe perform on several occasions I was amazed at his musical selection and knocked out by his skill to blend complex tracks smoothly and yet in a novel, interesting way. Needless to say, I was delighted to learn that he takes students and subsequently had more than a handful of lessons with him.

I can only verify what Ben said about himself above. In addition i can say that he is extremely patient, flexible, didactically minded, thorough and attentive. It is not only his mastery over the instrument of choice (turntables) but also his record collection, detailed knowledge of music history and above all--a genuine love for music (especially the good ones)--which made these lessons a remarkable experience for me. At the end of each session, we would analyze my improvements and what needed improvement while Ben would give a list of things that I should be practicing for our next session. Already after the first lesson I felt a significant advancement in my skills and so was true for every subsequent one.
I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Ben is the most skillful, knowledgeable, and genuine DJ/Instructor I have ever had.
I was once his student myself and learned so much from his lessons.
He not only taught me both fundamental and essential Djing techniques but also helped me build my own musical repertoire.
Up until now, I continue to ask him for his advice and feedback. He is a great mentor who's always happy to help his students.

Worth every $. Take his lessons!
