Summer L.

Brooklyn, NY

In music recording lessons, we will focus on learning Pro Tools and other DAWs in a hands-on setting. I provide students with editing exercises and songs to mix and master that we will work through together. We can also discuss miking techniques, signal flow, post-production techniques, ear training, and acoustics. I tailor each lesson to the student's interests and to help the student achieve their goals.

About Summer

Our lessons will be laid-back, encouraging, and productive. We will work together to help you achieve your goals and gain a well-rounded music education, regardless of age or musical background.

Each lesson will be based on the student's goals on the instrument and his or her interests. I focus on incorporating these goals and interests with the musical foundation necessary to be able to reach them, as well as exposing students to new musical ideas and styles.

I am passionate about sharing musical knowledge with others and believe that the most important aspect of teaching music is cre
ating an environment that is encouraging, fun, and individualized for each student. I have over 5 years of experience teaching piano and guitar to students of all ages and musical backgrounds.

I am a pianist and guitarist, an active performer, educator, and audio engineer with degrees in Professional Music (Performance) and Audio Engineering from Berklee College of Music. I have studied with extraordinary musicians and teachers such as Jennifer Elowsky- Fox, Doug Johnson, Ray Santisi, and Suzanna Sifter.

My music curriculum includes a variety of methods that I have found to be incredibly useful in my own music education and that of my students. These include performance studies books, ear training, sight-reading exercises, body mapping, proper technique, improvisation skills, and songbooks from a variety of genres. Above all, I focus on finding material that best suits the needs and interests of each student.

In music production, I promote hands-on learning and focus on practical application of concepts as well as examples of what we are studying in well-known songs.

Summer has been a great teacher

I used to play piano, but hadn't played in about 8 years. I decided to start up again and Summer has been great at getting me back into the swing of things at a good pace. Highly recommended!

Scott B.

Forest Hills, NY

As a student of production and engineering in college to having self produced and released 4 albums, as well as producing albums for others, audio engineering has been a staple of my career and something I take much pride and joy in teaching. Learn how to properly use widely misunderstood tools such as compression, EQ, panning, mastering, etc.

About Scott

"a masterful guitarist -- really, a total whiz of a rare order."
--Hudson Valley Almanac Weekly

"a force to be reckoned with... sophisticated chord voicings, complex finger picking patterns, and a flurry of blues, jazz, and folk inflected riffs performed with a ringing acoustic tone and an undeniable rhythmic drive."
--Wired.com

Scott is a an internationally touring guitarist and songwriter based in New York. In addition to his work as an in demand sideman for various artists and bands around the country, Scott is also an accomplished bandleader and composer with four acclaimed release
s under his belt over the last ten years.

As a guitarist, Scott brings a modern, technical approach to traditional american styles - jazz, bluegrass, country blues, western swing and chick'n pick'n country guitar - but as a songwriter he gravitates toward straightforward rock, blues and folk.

Scott's guitar playing and songwriting has landed him features from American Songwriter, CMT, and more. He holds a BFA in Studio/Composition, with a minor in Jazz Performance, from SUNY Purchase in Purchase, NY.

*** Lesson Details ***
When studying with Scott, students can expect a comfortable and fun atmosphere that promotes experimentation and positive reinforcement. Employing a curriculum that is equal parts formal technique and informal playing of the students favorite music, Scott makes every lesson engaging and exciting for his students.

After 3 to 6 months studying with Scott, beginners should expect to be able to play many of their favorite songs, have a firm grasp on basic scales, chords, theory and sight reading, and can even begin writing their own songs and improvising solos!

If you're already an intermediate/advanced player, Scott will push you to find your unique voice on the guitar, and tap into advanced techniques and approaches that will help you fully realize all that the guitar has to offer.

Lessons are tailored to each individual student's particular interests and abilities. Wherever you want to take your guitar playing, Scott will get you there and beyond!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring an acoustic guitar with me. My student must only have a guitar of their own of any kind. If it's electric, an amp is preferable, but not necessary.

*** Specialties ***
Music, Guitar, Bass, Theory, Song Writing, Composition, Improvisation, Sight Reading, Advanced Harmonic and Rhythmic Concepts, Group Playing
I am schooled in Jazz, but have a passion for all styles, including rock, blues, country, funk, folk, punk, and world music.

Scott is not only an amazing guitarist, but he is a superb teacher. Kind, supportive, and has an uncanny ability to break-down difficult pickings and strums into understandable and easy to follow directions. Most importantly, very patient. I was self-taught in the 70s when everyone picked up a guitar, stopped as an adult and am now re-starting it again after 30 years-and enjoying every moment. Scott is able to teach any type of music or song and intuitively understands and teaches the guitar style that the student would like to learn. Any student who studies with Scott should consider themselves fortunate. Not only does he know his stuff, he is passionate about music and passing on this musical knowledge to his students.

Worlds greatest guitarist gives lessons (and he's a good guy too)

I have been taking lessons with Scott for almost 10 years. Lessons have varied from ear training to guitar to songwriting. He is one of the most knowledgable and gifted musicians/ teachers I have ever known.

Lesson structures have been both formal and informal (at my request). I take a lot of information and knowledge home from each one and plenty to practice. Whether you want to learn a song or you want to learn theory, he can explain anything clearly and comfortably meeting you on your skill level.

I was really uncomfortable with where I was musically when I first started taking lessons. Almost immediately after starting with Scott I was confident in talking with other musicians in their language.

Do yourself and anyone who hears you make music a favor, and get a lesson with Scott!

Erica Q.

Brooklyn, NY

I'm classically trained and write and record original compositions heard in film and TV, most recently Veronica Mars. I have over ten years experience with Pro-Tools and can take you as far as you'd like to go. I can get you started recording live instrument tracks or show you advanced production technique and how to create expressive and intricate midi instrumentation.

About Erica

I'm a multi-intrumentalist, songwriter, and singer. I've toured internationally performing my original music as well as playing multiple instruments in bands. I produce and record music that can be heard in film and television. I teach several instruments and genres of music and take your tastes and learning style into utmost consideration. I always begin with practical exercises to develop technique, then we can focus on playing the music you love.

To vocal students I teach exercises that develop technique and allows you to explore your voice. I will help you learn to make sounds you love
. Singing is created by breath and muscles which we have full access to. Anyone can learn with proper focus, care and practice. I can also help you with recording and microphone technique as this is my area of expertise!

For violin, viola and cello students, I teach a combination the Suzuki Method (learning through ear training) and traditional theory and sight reading. We can also explore fiddling, blues and the foundations of jazz and rock improvisation if you're interested.

For guitar students, you can choose the songs you learn or let me recommend ones appropriate for your skill level. We can incorporate music theory, classical repertoire and sight reading into the process in degrees of your choosing. We can also explore singing while playing, songwriting and recording technique when you feel ready.

I also teach beginner piano, which I recommend for anyone who wants to better understand the mechanics of music. We learn basic classical compositions, exercises, theory, and any song you choose.

Who knows what creativity learning music will inspire? You may eventually write songs and want to explore recording them. Our lessons are held in a top of the line pro-tools recording studio where you can learn recording technique from me at any point.

I'm a classically trained violinist as well as a pop musician. I am currently playing in a chamber group, Hudson River Stings, and produce and perform electronic pop music. My musical training includes private lessons with some fantastic musicians such as Raz Kennedy, Jennifer Turner, Bob Corff and Matte Henderson, as well as Jazz and vocal studies at S.U.N.Y. New Paltz, San Francisco City College, and Los Angeles City College.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a laid back teacher who will give you a push when you need it! Music is joyful above all else and sometimes it's incredibly satisfying to work hard. We can talk candidly about your musical goals to determine how rigorously or casually we want to approach your lessons and practice schedule.

*** Studio Equipment ***
P.A. and vocal microphones, acoustic, electric and bass guitars, violin, cello, midi piano and pro-tools studio.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my instrument and extra sheet music beyond the lesson books. I expect the student to have an instrument, metronome, and lesson book (Suzuki books and CD for violin, viola and cello, Hal Leonard for guitar and bass, James Bastien for piano. I provide sheet music and a practice CD for my voice students.)

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in combination lessons such as guitar and voice lessons with a focus on songwriting. I can also help violinists who wants to transfer their knowledge of theory to guitar or piano and vice versa. We can incorporate recording techniques into any lesson.

He knows exactly what he is doing. He has shown me techniques my past 2 instructors failed to even attempt to show me. I'm not where I want to be but with him I am confident I'm on my way. Whether you're a beginner or advanced there's always room for improvement and Desmond will find it within that session. He is willing to work with you schedule and need I mention very affordable. You won't regret his classes!

Good product with excellent skills.

I've had the opportunity to work with Desmond upon forming his Vocal Ensemble choir, that had a Classical based foundation. As one of the Ensembles’ founding member I sang with the alto line, and found great joy and fulfillment in attending rehearsals.
Within six months of our choirs’ conception we had an enormous repertoire, and was touring, appearing on television, attending interviews with the media, performing in and winning competitions. Needless to say Desmond’s musical skills was a ray of sunlight, which came our way boosting our self confidence, while creating success for the group. I’m happy to have been a part of this group and am pleased to recommend Desmond to anyone who is serious and wants to learn music.

I have been taking Music Production lessons with Renato for about a year now. His vast professional knowledge of the recording process along side his immense talent as a drummer has really helped me hone my skills as a producer. He has challenged me to think outside the box and his style of teaching is perfect for me. He gives you a task and tells you "Make it happen!". After its done he goes through your process step by step, showing you how the quickest and most professional way of achieving a task. He recognizes talent and works hard to cultivate and encourage it. I am glad to have him as a mentor and teacher.

Renato M. is one of the best teachers I've ever had. I have learned so much from his extensive experience in the music business and the knowledge he has from producing, composing and playing music all his life.

Being in a room with Renato is guaranteed learning and inspiration. His infinite passion for music is contagious, he makes sure you are learning but most importantly that you love what you're learning about.

I've had many music teachers before in my life but no one as complete as Renato. He comes from a performance background and started producing music at an early age. He knows about arrangement, music history, composing, recording, mixing and mastering, HE IS JUST THE TEACHER YOU WANT TO HAVE!

I take lessons in Logic Pro from Renato and he is extremely helpful and patient. In particular he gets great sound using really basic plug ins. He has an extremely professional studio with some great gear but he showed me how to get my mix sounding great with the minimalist set up I have at home. Highly recommended!
