I place a heavy emphasis on not only playing music but understanding it. Understanding what you're playing is one of the most important differences between an amateur and a professional musician.

Music is all about relationships and patterns. I teach my students to recognize and identify these relationships and patterns to set them up on the course for musical mastery.

Anna M.
This is my first time taking any kind of vocal lessons so I was very nervous. Joseph made me feel very comfortable and really works on what I want to improve on. He is encouraging and very supportive of my ambitious singing goals. I just purchased another month's worth of lessons. Would definitely recommend.

Very good teacher
P.J.
Theresa is most excellent. There's no question that she knows music and is an accomplished musician, but the real trick is being able to share that talent with a saugsage-fingered doob such as myself. And make it seem a reasonable proposition, something you could do. She has an innate style of instruction that is at once comforting and challenging,setting the bar ever higher while giving enough encouragement that you want to do better. My highest recommendation.
Honybal
Amazing amazing amazing. I learned so much and had fun at the same time. Theresa has a great and friendly personality, it's such a joy working with her. If you want to learn Cello, I highly recommend her.

Svetlana has been teaching my son, who’s 10 years old, for 3 years. She’s kind and very knowledgeable. My son loves going to his lessons and looks forward to it every week. Svetlana teaches him musical theory, scales, and classical pieces and he has thrived with her instruction. Last year, he won a silver medal at the Sonatina competition! I highly recommend Svetlana as a piano teacher.
Janet
Ms Belsky has a unique ability to analyze a student's current pianistic situation and to guide them toward a deeper understanding of the best technique for achieving a more expressive performance. She has a deep knowledge of the history and performance practices of each musical style. She is generous in her observations, comments and suggestions.

"Andrew and I have been friends since my first semester in college. He and I are both Jazz trumpet players, so I was able to make a great connection with him from the start. Andrew is an amazing trumpet player and has knowledge in many different subjects like use of air, range, and lip injury recovery. I have played with Andrew for four years in the Temple Diamond Marching Band and have worked with him as a co-section leader of the trumpet section for two years. I know first hand that Andrew is a great player and a great Teacher! I would recommend him as a teacher to students in a heartbeat and I know that you will not be disappointed with him for trumpet lessons."

"Goes above and beyond

I have personally known Tom for 20 years and been to numerous Black Widow Shows. Around the age of 3 my son would beat on Popcorn and Cookie Tins with utensil so my parents bought him a small $50 drum kit from Toys R Us. When Tristan was 5 he requested his own CD player so he could play my Black Widow USA CD's. By the age of 6 he continually asked for drums. Tom helped me with the process of finding a used kit, went along to look at it and determine if it was suitable, came to my house and set it up, did Tristan first few lessons at my home so he could get used to the layout and feel of the kit. After determining Tristan would learn better in a setting with 2 drum kits Tom went and purchased another set for teaching. After one session Tristan picked up on something he had tried to learn for about a month. He works great with a beginner and will mold the lessons to their ability and learning capacity. Tristan wants to be just like Uncle Tom and even spent his own birthday money on Vic Firth Drum Stick, a stick bag, and Chimes for his kit."

"Dr. Backus is a phenomenal music teacher. In just a few lessons we could hear the difference in the way our daughter was playing piano. We have been so impressed with Dr. Backus’ ability to teach challenging piano techniques or music theory to our daughter and to make it interesting and fun. Our daughter not only enjoys her piano lessons but she is looking forward to them. Dr. Backus is a top-level piano performer and music teacher. Dr. Backus is extremely knowledgeable in her field and she is also organized and provides a framework of study for her students that is compatible with the student’s other activities and still ensures real progress in piano performance. Dr. Backus is passionate about music and about teaching music. She demonstrates so much positive energy and confidence that she captivates her students during the lessons. We highly recommend Dr. Backus as piano/music teacher."

"I began working with Barbara in 2013 for singing lessons and I have never looked back! I had never taken lessons before, so I had no idea what to expect. Barbara was and is wonderfully open, friendly and patient. She teaches you how to use your voice in a way that will not strain or hurt your voice, but train this "muscle" to work for you and all your vocal desires. I have been able to reach notes and achieve goals for myself vocally that I never expected. Bottom line: I would highly recommend Barbara for anyone wanting to grow their voice - for choir, for profession, or just for fun. Look no further!"

Just him talking about his dreams and aspirations motivate me into working hard not in just singing, but in my life in general. It is a beautiful thing that he chooses to share the knowledge he has to help others. He is very kind, patient and a pleasant joy to be around. He asked me about my dreams, expectations and wanted to know what my goals were and I appreciated that a lot!!! He taught me a lot of exercises and techniques that I use till this day. 5/5 teacher, singer and person!"
