I have been learning tenor banjo (Irish tuning) from Matt. Although I'm a complete beginner, Matt has been a very patient teacher. He balances lessons between learning songs and music theory. His wit and humor make every lesson enjoyable.
Sydney
I've been taking lessons from Matt for more than 8 years now since I was young and he's super friendly and encouraging! Highly recommend as he has experience with many different areas of guitar and that offers freedom to learn whatever you want.
Luke Lehman
Matt is able to spot small things that make a big difference in a musician's journey no matter how far along they are. His demeanor puts his students at ease, and always encourages and builds up. I'd recommend Matt to anyone, at any level, wanting to grow as a musician!!

I absolutely loved taking lessons from James. I was just coming off of a long break from acting when I found him, and I’m so thankful that I did. He gave me the confidence boost that I needed to push onward in my training. Since he has experience in the industry, he was able to tell me (truthfully) what I need to expect when my career takes off someday. That aside, we read through screenplays, did some accent work, improved a bit before every class, and talked about the power of positivity/confidence. I learned a little bit of everything from him. If you’re looking to get started on your path to an acting career, James is definitely your guy! He’ll do whatever he can to prepare you for your crazy journey through the industry.

I have taught English for about 10 years. Most recently, I began teaching online English to children (and adults) all over the world. I can help your child learn basic English by way of flashcards, immersion, and picture cards. I also use TPR (total physical response) which is similar to the game of charades. Associating new words with actions, along with parroting (having the student repeat each new word three times) let’s begin our journey together. Your young learner will love Miss Lisa and look forward to every class!

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!

After I learn about your previous experience (if any) and musical goals, we will work together to build your technique, music literacy, and most importantly your musicality. We'll select a variety of repertoire that you are excited about and I'll help you to build a consistent practice routine that works for you. Many of my students enjoy the many online and app-based games and activities I can offer to complement your practice.

I met Lisa while she was teaching Music at the American International School of Mozambique. She taught me for two enriching years and, since then, has continued to be influential in my musical career. When we first met, she was enthusiastic, encouraging, and – most importantly – filled with musical excitement. Under her, I studied the flute (starting as a complete beginner) and I had, within a short time, become a proud flutist. With her encouragement, I continued to study music with the unique opportunity to work with her one-on-one in pursuing an IB Music course. We studied not only the flute but all explored all aspects of music across cultures. While it was a heavy course load, she made the material engaging and interesting so that the work felt effortless and fun.

Lisa has a passion for music that I have yet to find in another teacher. Her unique teaching engages students and challenges them to discover on their own terms. Using games, flashcards, songs, and tapping into student creativity, she introduced and guided me through the complex world of music. I can say without a doubt that she is the reason I still love to play the flute!


I would recommend Lisa to any student: especially for students who are struggling to find their musical niche. Her passion spills over into everything that she does and makes any activity (be it practicing or performing) engaging, educational, and fun. Best of luck on your musical journey!

"I came to these lessons with minimal Adobe experience. In fact, I've always gone to great lengths to avoid using Adobe, because I find it overly challenging. I like simple! Yet I also saw a growing need to get Photoshop under my belt for my various websites and business graphics.

Etana took a guy who didn't even know how to work with layers, and after a few hours of training together I was whipping out some very sharp looking graphics & images for our website. She assessed my needs and patiently walked me through the basics of what I'd foreseeably use on the projects I normally work on.

I now feel much more confident to tackle the Adobe beast. Etana is a skilled instructor. If I ever have a need for additional instruction or help with a design project I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again. I highly recommend this very capable instructor! Thank you for helping me Etana. :-)"
