Joanna M.

Brooklyn, NY

About Joanna

Music has the power to uncover the beauty all around us. It can strengthen our bonds with other people. It can raise us out of low, lost places. It can be a filter that brightens our view of our daily lives. Learning an instrument or any discipline brings to the learner opportunities for growth and improvement. It also provides a space for self-reflection. Rarely in our daily lives are we encouraged to face ourselves- to meet head on with our strengths and weaknesses. Learning any instrument can help reveal these things to us and allow us to address them in a more objective way. We can build discipline, develop problem-solving skills, and find confidence. If learned with the right approach, the instrument can be an external indicator of our internal growth. In addition to all ...

Fantastic teacher. Tons of positive energy and encouragement. Very willing to help me work on songs of my own choosing and able to figure them out in just a few minutes. With her we worked on country style fiddling.

Joanna is a very good violin instructor. She's very clear when she is teaching my daughter. Would very much recommend her to teach other students.

Erica Q.

Brooklyn, NY

I teach the Suzuki Method and focus on playing by ear to allow you to develop great technique, intonation and enjoyment of playing music. We will later focus on music theory, sight reading and exploring any genre of music you're interested in after establishing a strong foundation.

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 ...

She is very friendly, kind and extremely patient with my daughter when she has trouble grasping a new concept. My daughter loves her and has the desire to practice hard to impress her. I honestly can say enough good things about her.

Ms. Erica is a talented and wonderful violinist. She has a wonderful way of teaching that is encouraging without being pushy. I am impressed with the results she has gotten out of my autistic son, who is very sensitive of critical instructors. 'she seems to know just what to say to correct and encourage him.

What an amazing website of resources. I don't think it would have been possible for me to have pursued a long time desire to take lessons again with my crazy schedule AND to find such a thoughtful and enthusiastic teacher as Erica! I was probably looking at achieving some combination of musical therapy and musical cognition with a deep yearning to get back to some core basics that as a younger musician I was in too much of a hurry to focus on ( I certainly got all of the above!) The priceless piece about Erica was her innate ability to connect in such a joyful way to wherever I was in my rather unpredictable musical path. She filled me with laughter, ideas and a new way to look at my instrument. Thank you so much for being my temporary guide - some day I look forward to coming back for more. If you are looking for a teacher - please consider starting here - you won't be disappointed!

Erin E.

Brooklyn, NY

I teach Suzuki method and traditional viola. I absolutely love the viola and enjoy teaching beginners, people who have already studied, and violinist converts!

About Erin

I fell in love with the violin at age seven under the instruction of Natalie Colbert at E. Rivers Elementary School in Atlanta, GA. I studied violin through high school and college, and received a BA in Communications with a Minor in Music from Georgia State University. After a lifelong study of the violin, I began to play the viola as a happy accident. As an undergraduate student in college, my chamber music group needed a violist to play the Schubert Trout Quintet. Never one to turn down a challenge, I jumped right in and never looked back, and have played viola in addition to violin ever since. I'm eager and enthusiastic to share my knowledge of music. I am passionate about enabling students to express themselves through music. I teach students of all ages, but particularly love

Erin is the Best!! I have started taking lessons again as an adult and Erin is just as excited as I am as I become familiar once again with my instrument. In a nutshell- it is so much fun and a highlight after my long work week. I can't wait until my son is old enough to play. I have no doubt that she is awesome with kids.

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.

Mandolin · Online
Verified Student
When I met Concetta online, I had never played the Mandolin before. Now after 4 going on 5 months I am in the beginning stages of learning Vivaldi's Concerto for Mandolin. This feat was accomplished by Concetta's knowledge, understanding and compassion for this student who was clumsy, awkward and with little self confidence. I now know where I want to go with the Mandolin and with Concetta's guidance and wisdom, I know I will be given a strong foundation to achieve it. This has been the best experience for me and I know it will also be for you as well....:)
