Emily is a great teacher. This is my son's first time playing guitar and he has gotten really good. She teaches him music theory too. And, he gets to play all kinds of songs including classical.

Miss Brown is an awesome piano and guitar teacher. When I retired a few years ago I took piano with her. Now she's teaching me how to play guitar. Since I know how to play piano, it's so much easier to learn guitar. She's teaching me how to play in a band too. We jam together me playing guitar and she plays piano. Miss Brown makes everything easy to learn. I'm having so much fun learning to play music!

Hello my name is Joyce Lindsey,

I have been studying West African djembe, (traditional/ballet 3 set) dun-duns, culture and history for five years collectively. I am currently a member of all female drum and dance company called Ayodele Drum and Dance that is based out of Chicago, IL. I currently perform and continue to study West African music from Guinea, Mali, Nigeria, and the Ivory Coast through Ayodele and play for West African dance classes professionally.

I understand that teaching djembe requires a lot of patience as well as detailed but simple explanations/demonstrations of how to develop and improve djembe technique. Through my own experience with my djembe teachers and djembefolas like Bolokada Conde and Khalid Abdul Saleem over my five years of studying djembe, I was able to improve and develop my technique because my teachers were: patient, clear and detailed in their explanations, fun and concise when demonstrating simple and complex rhythms and able to break down ...

Hi! I am a young voice teacher who loves to share the joy of music! I have a degree in vocal performance from Converse College. I focus on classical music, but I also love teaching other genres! I want to be able to make you comfortable with yourself and help you grow as a vocalist. My goal in each lesson is that you learn something new, think about something with a new perspective, and have fun while doing it. I hope to be teaching you soon!

Kathryn is an amazing instructor. She is very encouraging and supportive of her students and she goes above and beyond to make sure that they understand the topic of each lesson. She works with her students to pick out pieces to learn that will fit their vocal range, as well as choosing pieces that they will enjoy. She makes a plan for each student based on their individual needs, and works with them to meet their goals. She is very knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend her as an instructor for vocal training!

I like to teach with music, meaning we start by choosing the students favorite song and building slowly in level of difficulty. As they progress we play beats and learn fills. Later we get into reading and writing drum notes. Then we explore different genres, and styles of playing. This way the student can aim to play any song at-least 4-5 ways depending on what is required and what style and flavor they want to incorporate in their performance. For Advanced students we learn to jam with other instrumentalists, and write our own drum beats. Just like a pianist would learn to compose a melody, my drum students can learn to compose their own drum beats like all great drummers do. And finally the most advanced student can learn to manage the rhythm of a song, not only the drums but also the other instruments.
Any level of student can expect to learn the necessary rudiments, beats, fills to have a vast and deep repertoire. Also I strive to teach the art of freestyling which is the ...

About Shiv

I've been playing since I was 6 years old, so I understand the difficulty of learning drums, but it. doesn't have to be boring. I like to teach with the student's favorite songs, and break them down into simple levels. And as we learn new concepts we can play their song with a more complex rhythm,

Shiv is a great teacher, he is practical, uses songs to get you started and keep you interested in learning drums. He is young and has been learning music from very young age. It is relief for me when i go to drums classes as it clears my mind away from daily grind.
Ekta
My son took drum lessons from Shiv for a short time. Shiv really connected with my son and sparked an interest by starting with my son’s favorite songs. We could not continue due to conflict of timings.

Shiv has been teaching our son since he was 6yrs old and although he’s young, he’s great with connecting with the students and explaining things to help you understand. My son really enjoys his lessons & we highly recommend Shiv. He has a passion for music & tracing and he’s really good at it.

"Lawrence is a great coach for musical theater singing. When I was in the 5th grade I had an audition for this school called ppas, which is a preforming arts school. I love musical theater and I was taking lessons in neighborhood playhouse. Lawrence was one of the vocal coaches there so my mom got him as a private coach. He was really helpful in teaching me how to sing, he picked a really good song for me and he helped me a lot. I got into the school, and I probably wouldn't have if it weren't for him. We also got him as a coach for my laguardia audition, and although my voice had changed a lot he helped pick the right song and we worked on it. He helped me get in there as well. Would defininetly reccomend."

"I've been taking Nikita's lessons for last 3 years and not only gained guitar playing and signing skills but also greatly enjoyed each and every lesson. Nikita's ability to adjust the education with respect to your level and personal interests is just amazing: classic music and modern songs, theory and practice, even your own favorite musical compositions make the educational program. This is much more than I could imagine!
Nikita has also been teaching my son for 5+ years and the result is simply awesome!
Thanks a lot Nikita, looking forward to keep attending your classes!"
