Laura K.

New York, NY

Whether you need tutoring for a class or a basic explanation of the nuts and bolts of music!

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.

Less
ons 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 concentration and application! I understand and can work with many schedules and work loads, but I expect my students to put at least half the effort into their lessons that I do!

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. ^_^

Opera Voice · In home
Chelsea aside from her amazing operatic voice, happens to be an excellent teacher. She has studied and trained with some of the top names in the business and has been able to incorporate these various professional coaching techniques into her own style. Chelsea has performed, soloed and auditioned and knows the drill. She is patient and offers excellent and professional guidance. I would recommend her to anyone considering voice lessons for the first time, or looking for a new teacher.

I am 43 and started my first musical instrument experience with Concetta, with no background and knowledge of music theory at all. Needless to say how challenging it was at first, but with her dedication, professionalism and friendly approach, I made a significant progress in about 7 months. I am so happy to have Concetta as my violin teacher and would definitely recommend her.

Concetta was such a treat to have in our home! She came out all the way from NY to NJ for my mothers birthday, and though she is a beginner, emerged from the 1 hour lesson so inspired to keep practicing, able to fully complete her first song! She even did a little performance at the end on the lesson! She is a great people person, fun to talk to, and she really knows her stuff. Excellent choice!

I have learned more in just three lessons with Concetta than I learned after three months of once a week lessons with an instructor from a music store.

Concetta has a natural gift to teach and an ability to allow even a musical novice, like me, understand basic music theory.

This talented young lady eat, sleeps and breathes music.

Luis R.

New York, NY

from beginning notation, rhythms, to analyzing music scores.

About Luis

I have been teaching privately for twelve years. I enjoy teaching students of all ages. My school-aged students have earned awards pertaining to their instrument at school and district music competitions. Lessons are normally once per week for one hour. My time in music school has given me the skills and confidence to teach so many musical subjects. I like to inspire students to achieve their goals by giving them the tools to succeed. There is a lot of hard work, but most importantly, we have lots of fun. Please send me message if you have any questions. Thanks!

Upright Bass · In studio
Luis was a wonderful colleague to have. As music education majors we both had to learn multiple instruments. Luis took the time to teach my bass and helped me practice for performance exams. He would break down lessons to a beginner's level for me and always remained patient during my lesson.

As a colleague I feel that Luis's strongest point is his clear communication skills. I was constantly impressed with how well able he was to communicate his thoughts and feelings openly and forwardly to other. He was clearly able to do this without feeling vulnerable and while maintaining respect for himself others. I highly recommend him for teaching based on his interpersonal skills and musical knowledge.

Nick D.

New York, NY

About Nick

Welcome, my teaching philosophy is that a concrete musical foundation can be transferred across any musical genre. Having witnessed the misleading "strict classical" only foundation, I make sure all my students are introduced to composition, theory, jazz and world music within their first year.
As a piano/vocal teacher I’ve been privately and publicly coaching for the past 8 years. I have a roster of students on the Upper East Side and have worked with studios such as Piano Power, Kidville and Acting Like a Kid, where I’ve privately taught over 25 students piano and voice. My a
pproach encompasses combining technical exercises and stylistic technique alongside popular and standard repertoire of the student’s choosing. I’ve found that students respond well when techniques are realized through various musical genres. I’ve also worked in larger classroom settings where I’ve taught arrangements of contemporary music and accompanied for grades K3-8 (PS 183).

My Piano Lessons with Nick were unlike any lessons I've ever had. He incorporated Music Theory, Composition, Sight Reading, and specially tailored exercises right for my weak areas. I'm able to understand music in deeper ways then simply reading what's on the page.
