Fun and worthwhile experience

I had never played guitar before and Jordan was very encouraging. He took his time with teaching me new things and always gave me productive feedback to work on. He is super talented and was able to teach me any song that I threw his way (I constantly wanted to learn pop punk music). I was very sad when he was moving to NY and am still looking for a teacher to replace him. He is highly recommended.

Jordan is the best!

I decided to try a new hobby, playing guitar, and Jordan became my teacher. I was not very good, but Jordan was very positive and patient, which made me feel less hard on myself. You can also tell he has a strong passion and enthusiasm for music, which made me want to return for more lessons - because it was fun! I hope anyone who is looking for a great learning experience chooses Jordan as his or her teacher.

Well surpassed my expectations!

I have been taking lessons for less than a month, and I have found that because of my teacher's skill and guidance with building solid fundamentals with me, I have seen more progress than I would have ever expected in such a short amount of time. This teacher is creative, intuitive, patient, and very encouraging, which makes the lessons and learning process both challenging and fun. He doesn't "cookie cutter" his lessons, rather, he tailors it to my needs and abilities. I have complete confidence that all my musical playing goals will be met - and them some - because of my teacher. So far, my expectations have been well surpassed, and I would highly recommend this teacher!

Matt La Von is the epitome of a great teacher. He is patient, allowing you to understand things on your own time. His instruction is clear and easy to understand and his knowledge of music seems to be endless. Above all else he is an accomplished musician and I trust that under his watchful eye I will be able to improve and refine my own abilities.
Laura K. New York, NY

About Laura

Music is definitely the universal language, and there isn't a genre I don't love; it's important to me that that aspect be brought to lessons, as well! From humble New Jersey beginnings to an opera career, I've seen the power of what music can do! Whether it's opera, musical theater, folk, rock, or just public speaking, anything YOU love to do, I would love to teach you! Having taught all ages and levels, from first graders to adults, from someone who's never sung a note in his or her life to semi-professionals, I cater my lessons to what YOU as a student need and are interested in. Lessons shouldn't be a chore - I like to foster an environment you look forward to being a part of! I also think that music, like any sport, is hard work, and takes seriously practice; even hobbies take ...

Awesome teacher! patient, knowledgeable, & creative

I'm a complete beginner, could barely sing in tune. I decided to take lessons for fun. but whoa was i surprised at the progress I've made with Laura in just a few short months. She has catered to my individual needs, and has made my learning experience fun. She works at my pace so i never feel rushed or bored. She teaches singing lessons in a way anyone can understand. Her background in opera means she can sing and teach her students amazing vocal range. She taught me anything is possible with hard work and dedication! I've learned so much with her, it's hard to put it all in a short review. Pick her and you won't be disappointed! Thank you Laura!

Great teacher

Laura is a really good and nice teacher. She is patient to answer all of my questions.I improved a lot in a short period of time with her tips on singing. She's not only just teach you how to sing, she also talks some histories of music and different examples or even her experiences to me. She can make an exercise into a fun way to do. I learned a lot from her and I gain more confident on singing. I'm always looking forward to take lessons with her. She's such a great singer and vocal coach!! Laura is a great choice for those of you who want to learn singing in a comfortable, no pressure and fun environment. ^_^

Jayne I. New York, NY

About Jayne

I have been a vocal health advocate and a music specialist for several years. Keeping your musical mind in shape and teaching you to be conscious of what you are doing with your talent is a top priority. I believe in giving you the opportunity to learn to sing healthy with any style of music or to play the piano with thoughtful creativity and solid technique. I believe that each student is different, so each student will be taught differently. We will work together to find your own musical truth. You are an individual and I cannot make you into a copy of someone else, we will discover the musician inside of you. You will be taught in an environment that is full of confidence building and positive feedback. Do expect to do some things that are out of the box. There will be times ...

We have loved our experience working with Jayne!

Working with Jayne has been a great pleasure! Her unique and very learner-centered way of customizing my daughter's experience in her singing lessons has been so amazing.

We have been working with Jayne for close to a year, and I continue to be more and more impressed with her holistic approach and the results I see in terms of my daughter's growth as a vocalist. Tessa has not only grown in her ability and confidence as a singer, she has also grown as a human being through her work with Jayne.

Jayne is very timely and professional and also very flexible to boot. I would highly recommend Jayne to other parents considering vocal lessons for their child.

Jayne is wonderful!

My son has gone to Jayne for lessons for the greater part of a year. Aside from being a wonderful human being, I will list all the reasons why she is an absolutely amazing teacher.

- She communicates really well with my son, AND with me. About everything from lesson plans to our schedule.

- She is patient, and kind to her students.

- She is always on time, and is very good about any schedule conflicts... and she always has things planned out.

- Not only is my son becoming a seriously amazing little piano player, he actually LIKES Jayne, as a person. Our time with her is always great. He is excelling in music theory and performance, beyond what I ever expected.

Can't say enough good things about her!

HIGHLY recommend Jayne for your child

Jayne has taught my niece, Caroline, vocal lessons for over a year and I have to say, she is probably the best singing teachers out there. Jayne has a "student-centered" approach to teaching so Caroline chooses what she wants to learn and sings the songs she wants to sing. Yet, in every lesson, Jayne spouts out gems of knowledge ranging from how to sing healthily to the essentials of music (reading music, understanding percussion, music writing.) It's more than just singing lessons, Jayne cares about the child growing as a musical individual. Lessons with Jayne are fun, interactive, and completely engaging. I know Caroline looks forward to them, as do I.

Sara's experience in vocal training allows her to identify what would benefit your voice. She has different warm ups and techniques that will aid you not just in the sound you are looking for but prepare you for all types of singing. What I really like about these lessons is that I have pinpointed the weaknesses in my technique, that I myself could not identify, and that I leave with the ability to work on those weaknesses . Sara is really cool and down to earth making it it a comfortable environment to work in. Lastly, she has a singing cat which you need to see...I kid you not.
