Wonderful to work with!

I've been taking lessons from Valerie for a little over a year now, and she really knows what she is talking about. She is very professional, and I always leave the lesson feeling that I'm making progress.

Valerie Coates has a comprehensive knowledge of vocal technique.

As a professional singer I value the attention to detail, acute focus on healthy production of sound and positive reinforcement during my lessons with Valerie Coates. The written exercises for daily practice are drawn from Ms. Coates vast experiences with what works for specific areas - placement of vowels, breath control, pitch placement and interpretation of each aria. I feel such a difference in the short time we have been working together.

Valerie is the best voice lesson coach!

I started to take voice lessons when I was 53 years old. I hadn't sang since my childhood except humming songs in the bath tub, and was a total beginner.Valerie taught me not only how to sing but how to read music and basic music theory, and gave me practical exercises to develop muscles which are required for singing also. 1 year later, I joined a choir. Choir music is in Latin, Italian, French, German, Spanish, old English and so forth and I have trouble pronouncing those words. Valerie checks each of my pronunciations carefully and gives me accurate sounds and meanings of words as well. She is a skilled teacher with a great deal of knowledge and patience. When I faced a very fast, up-tempo, tongue twisting difficult Bach piece in German last winter, I was desperate and almost gave up the music, but she broke it down into small sections and made it easier for my practice. It was a big challenge but with her help I mastered the music and sang in front of people which gave me confidence and a great deal of pleasure. I am a soprano and my mid-voice range is weak. She picked out some exercises to develop this weakness and I have definitely improved. She knows all sorts of techniques for particular problems. Now I am focusing on the resonate sound of my voice. Of course she gave me special exercises to develop the quality of my voice and I have started to hear the improvement. She is a great teacher and I respect and appreciate her very much.

Fred is a top notch teacher

I took voice lessons with Fred for about 2 years when I was 11 years old. I remember always looking forward to my lessons with him. He was not only a great voice teacher, but such a kind soul. He always knew what I needed on any given day, and would tailor my lessons for that. Lessons with him were always a highlight of my week. Aside from his kindness and relaxed energy, he has a unique creativity in teaching voice. He is extremely keyed in to each individual's vocal quality and tailors his exercises for them. I would highly recommend taking lessons with Fred.

Deep understanding of singing

I took lessons with Fred Rice for one year, and it was perfect for a beginning vocalist. I could tell that Fred understood every aspect of what he taught me, and communicated those ideas in an accessible fashion. I highly recommend Fred for vocalists at any level; I personally guarantee that you will learn from him and get more than your money's worth.

Working with Fred was truly rewarding.

I was a student of Fred's for a year and I found it to be a truly wonderful, positive experience.
Fred learned what was important for me as a singer and focused on my voice as an individual.
More importantly, working with Fred was a joy. We had fun and I never stopped learning.

I have been taking lessons with Rebecca for a little over a year. During this time her high energy level and enthusiasm for teaching has made each lesson an absolute pleasure to attend.

She is a teacher who enjoys thinking during each lesson and providing her students with the right tools to improve their singing.

Rebecca’s unique teaching style also blends the technical and mental aspect of singing.

If you are a beginner or a more advanced singer looking to improve your technique, she is a great choice.

I've loved music and dance my whole life, and always wished that I could carry a tune. About a year ago I decided to see what I could do about it, and found my way to Rebecca.

I was nervous that a singing teacher would not want to deal with an absolute beginner like me. Rebecca immediately set my mind at ease. She has been so patient and supportive, and encourages me to push myself while keeping things fun. I've been surprised and gratified with how much I've been able to progress in less than a year, and consider Rebecca both a teacher and a friend.

Rebecca is a skilled practitioner (I love to listen to her sing) but has a gift for teaching and takes a professional approach to her work. She thoughtfully tailors her approach based on my skill level and interests, and remembers where we are lesson to lesson.

I've progressed in my singing, but the lessons have also had a positive impact on my life in other ways, such as my speaking voice when presenting at work, how stress manifests in my face, even my "oms" in yoga class are better. :)

I look forward to my lessons as an opportunity to explore my own creativity and vocal capabilities, and can wholeheartedly recommend Rebecca to other non-professionals.

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 .

I had the privilege of taking guitar, ensemble, arrangement/composition, and theory lessons with Devin for 3 years. Not only is he very knowledgeable in his field, but he also has a knack for communicating his lessons in an easy-to-understand manner. Devin truly listens and is genuinely patient. He tailors his lessons to help you achieve your personal goals while simultaneously giving you a well-rounded, solid foundation in music standards. Plus, he's just a really nice guy! Definitely recommended!
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.

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!
