I had the best time taking voice lessons with Josh! I always felt like he was able to meet me where I was and allow me to learn at the pace that made sense for me, while also pushing me a bit where it made sense. I was able to grow as a vocalist without even really realizing it, because I was having so much fun!

Josh and Niki B.
Josh has been teaching our son (14 years old) piano and voice for over a year. He is an exceptional teacher and musician. Our son is really into musical theater and pop music. Josh has done an amazing job getting him playing and singing the music he loves quickly and successfully. He incorporates vocal and piano technique, music theory, and style into the context of pieces of music our son is motivated to learn, practice, and perform. Josh is incredibly smart and personable. He relates well to our son and has built a strong, trusting teacher-student relationship with him. We have also hired Josh to perform at family events for us. He was incredibly talented and professional. We cannot recommend Josh highly enough. He is fantastic!

Sulley S.
Great teacher! We went over the different chords and he picked out a song I liked to go over together and made me some sheet music with the fret positions labeled for each note. He was patient and gave me room to fix my own mistakes.

I'm enjoying my bass lessons with Rob. He explains every concept thoroughly and always checks in with me to make sure I understand what he's teaching. He responds quickly to any questions I have in between lessons. I also appreciate the notes he provides after every lesson as it gives me something to practice and helps me review what I learned.
Anderson M.
Rob is incredibly knowledgable and was able to hone in immediately on both what I needed AND what I was asking for. I look forward to more lessons in the future.

About Christian

Music is my passion. I've been playing music since I was a child but didn't get serious with it until I was 14, that's when I got my first electric guitar. So, from then on I've been playing and studying music for over 16 years. I play and teach guitar, piano, drums, and bass guitar. Aside from taki

He is a great teacher and very patient. He provides material if requested to practice at home. Great teacher and very knowledgeable!
Charlie S.
Christian was very careful as I knew nothing about music. He explained the guitar’s basic function in language that I can understand. I am more enthusiastic about playing than I thought possible.
Braylon C.
A great instructor. Very patient with my son who has never touched a piano before. Very knowledgeable about all types of music and different instruments. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for lessons.

I went through 4 voice teachers here in NYC before settling on Mary - been taking vocal training with her for about a year and half now and it's been worth every penny.

Mary is an excellent communicator, with a great sense for analogies and concrete descriptions for abstract concepts (esp crucial for things like singing). She's a gifted vocalist, having been classically trained with an Opera and Jazz background, but more than that - she has the ability to enhance someone else's sense of style and natural voice. She is of course also an amazing human all around, with a great attitude, style, and general "lust for life." Highly recommend Mary as a vocal coach
Jon
My decades long musical history was moving toward something new - singer-songwriter-guitar performer. I needed help. Mary is shockingly amazing in all three, which says nothing for her piano and tech skills, which says nothing for her really beautiful ear and professional easy demeanor ... I can't recommend her enough. She has transformed a part of my musical world into something, for which I am both eternally grateful and waiting for my next lesson.
jon R.
I began taking lessons with Mary after I heard her sing. Besides having a terrific voice I really love how effortless she makes singing look. I've been taking lessons with her for about a month and she's been helping me connect the dots. I appreciate her method. She works with me to build my voice and doesn't push a style or direction. Her descriptions give me directions on what to think and how to feel when I sing. I look forward to the coming months!
