Review by Lisa
First of all, Dave is an incredibly gifted musician, but his talent for teaching is top-notch as well. His laid-back personality worked we
ll to put me at ease, and he is very patient in his guidance and instruction. He covers a lot of territory, but he utilizes a building-block method of teaching that makes sense to me. Speaking solely from the perspective of an adult student, he does challenge you to stretch and to think, to search for patterns and logical sequences on the keyboard. This makes the learning feel more collaborative, as though Iâm engaging in my own progress in ways beyond the practice time. I highly recommend him if youâre looking for quality keyboard time with a great instructor."

"Learning piano with Josh has been an amazing experience!
I learned rigorous classical piano playing for 10 years growing up, but I was never able to f
ind fun in it that I end up giving it up in high school. Beginning of this year, I decided to give it another try, and wanted to learn popular music and music theory as a change.
It was very fortunate that I found Josh. He is a very talented musician as well as a great teacher - a unique rare combo. He always tailors his teaching to my level and learning speed, teaches in a very interactive way with lots of examples, balances the pace of each lesson nicely between reviewing past material and stretch the learning horizon with new materials, and his love and passion in music come through and it is infectious. He also is very humble and curious and constantly seek feedback and new ideas to improve his teaching.
Now instead of dragging my feet to piano lessons, I actually practice daily at home and look forward to each weekend piano lesson with Josh. I'm so glad I found him as my teacher and would highly recommend anyone who'd like to learn music and have a ton of fun in the process!"

"I've been taking lessons with Jeff for over 6 years. He is the most knowledgeable instructor I've ever met and is fluent all music styles with an in depth
understanding of music theory. Our lessons are always fun, entertaining and educational. We always mix music theory with any songs we are trying to figure out and Jeff always wants you to leave with having learned something new, not just how to play a song. I really value the time I spent in Jeff's lessons and would recommend him to anyone interested in pursuing guitar lessons."

"I've known Dave as a friend and fellow musician for years. His dedication and skills to the art is always refreshing. I am a freelance music composer, I s
hould know my theory and rhythms, but Dave has really grasped these topics and can apply them on the sticks or on manuscript. He's also just a positive, fun, well traveled and down to earth guy. You will be lucky to have him as a teacher. - Michael Wideburg @ www.fizzixproductions.com"

Thanks for checking out my profile. I look forward to helping you reach your musical goals in drum and percussion! Here's a little info about my musical training:
Born in Istanbul, Turkey and raised in Tulsa, OK, my first musical experiences were on my grandmother's old piano. I was later introduced to a drum set when my brother and I received a drum set as a gift. I played in several local bands and in my high school jazz band in Tulsa, playing a range of musical styles from rock, swing, funk, and Latin. I decided in my senior year of high school to take music seriously and moved to NYC
to study at the Drummer's Collective. During this period, I also focused on Middle Eastern hand percussion (doumbek, riq, and frame drum) and studied with Mehmet Akatay in Turkey. After receiving my certificate at the Drummer's Collective, I applied and was accepted to the New School Jazz and Contemporary Music Program in NYC, where I received my BA in Music. Since my graduation, I've been working as a freelance musician, playing with my band Manner and other groups, producing music for commercials, and teaching students in the Jersey City, NJ, and New York / Brooklyn, NY area.
*** Lesson Details *** Before anything, I believe music and specifically music lessons must be fun. I'm an easy going and patient person and my goal with lessons is to ensure that students are understanding music in a fun and musical way.
I teach out of my home and studio in Jersey City. We will come up with a goal and decide what to expect from our lesson plan We can work on formal technique, sight reading, and improvisation, or if you just want to learn the beats to your favorite tunes, we can just ROCK OUT! So keep note of your favorite songs, and we'll break it down and learn the beats.
I have extensive training in Middle Eastern hand percussion. So those of you who are interested in playing doumbek, riq, or frame drums, we can work on learning different different rhythms and meters from the Turkish, Greek, Arabic, Bulgarian, and Macedonian styles.
Focus on: - learning songs, beats, fills - formal technique - coordination and independence - sight reading - improvisation - rhythmic composition - variety of styles: jazz, rock, funk, R&B, Latin, Middle Eastern, Brazilian
Accepting levels from beginner to advanced.
*** Studio Equipment *** Both in-home and in-studio are equipped with a full drum kit, guitars, percussion instruments, keyboards, amps, and PA system for playback and play along. Recording availability to record lesson material or even collaborate and record a song together! Free parking right outside of the studio, and parking easily found in front of my home.
*** Specialties *** The main musical styles I perform are rock, jazz, Latin, funk, R&B, and Middle Eastern / Balkan music. I studied jazz performance in college and also focused specifically on Middle Eastern and Brazilian percussion.

Cem is an excellent instructor, a very patient teacher that takes the time to discuss the importance of form and sound quality. I have always had the desire to play drums and have never played so I appreciate his approach of making me feel at ease by playing along with me so I can see his form and technique. All the feedback I have received I have been able to return to the next class with improved skill and understanding. I really enjoy and look forward to my classes and I am happy with my progression during a short period of time.

Hi! My name is Erica, and I am a private lesson teacher, composer, arranger, and pianist currently living, writing, performing, and teaching in North Jersey. I believe that by having such a versatile musical background, I will be able to understand different needs and interests you may have and help you begin or continue your musical journey and reach your goals.
I currently teach 30 private piano and composition students in North New Jersey, and I am consistently inspired by all the progress all my students have made! My students have played classical pieces in recitals, played in jazz com
bos with other student musicians, written music that was performed by professional ensembles, learned how to play ragtime, and more. No two students have gone down the same path, because the curriculum was developed around the individual.
As a composer, I've penned over 15 charts for Jazz Ensemble, in addition to several charts for Studio Orchestra, Jazz Combos, Chamber Groups, Vocal Groups, and Film, and I've won a few awards, including 1st Place in the International Zurich Jazz Orchestra Composition Competition, a 2011 ASCAP Young Jazz Composers Award, and a 2012 ASCAP Plus Award. I co-lead a jazz orchestra that has performed in several NYC clubs. My pieces have also been performed by her own chamber group "Community of the Spirit," Kurt Elling and the Metropole Orchestra the Zurich Jazz Orchestra, Todd Coolman's Quintet, the Eastman Jazz Ensemble and Studio Orchestra, Bernie Williams and the William Paterson Jazz Orchestra, Weapons of Jazz Destruction, and others.
I've also been inspired by many teachers along the way. I have a BM in Jazz Writing (Composition) with high distinction from the Eastman School of Music, and an MM in Jazz Arranging from William Paterson University. My composition and piano teachers have included Jim McNeely, Bill Dobbins, Rich DeRosa, Harold Danko, Raymond Torres-Santos, Tony Caramia, and Adrien Cohen, and I am a current member of the BMI Jazz Composers Workshop in NYC.
I'm a very passionate teacher and I'm excited to begin your musical journey!
*** Lesson Details *** In addition to a customized lesson plan (dependent on your goals, strengths, weaknesses, and interests) you get introduced to a wide variety of styles and concepts. Some of the things you will do in your musical adventure with me include:
1) Learn classical pieces ranging from short Bach Minuets if you're a beginner, to Chopin Nocturnes and Bach Preludes and Fugues if you're advanced. 2) Learn the "why" behind music... Why does this sound quirky? Where does the musical statement end? What harmony is the composer using? 3) Write your own music. We might take a new concept you learned, and you may compose a song based on it. Or you may have your own ideas, and I'll help you take them to the next level. 4) Learn to improvise and learn how to play some jazz. You will play over blues and learn jazz standards. You will also learn how to play by ear. 5) Learn basic conducting.
*** Studio Equipment *** home: fully-weighted keyboard, seating for parents, music stands, sheet music, printer (for printing custom handouts), free wi-fi music studio : fully-weighted keyboard, seating for parents, music stands, sheet music, printer (for printing custom handouts), free wi-fi
*** Specialties *** I teach classical and jazz, and usually like to incorporate both into lessons at some point, even if the student may have a greater interest in one of these (so you don't have the classical pianist that has never played one note not written in the music or doesn't know how to spell a simple major triad, and you don't have a jazz pianist whose reading skills is not up to par, and has no regard for tone/touch). Typically students not only read classical repertoire (Bach, Beethoven, Bartok, Kabelevsky, etc.) but also learn how to improvise over a blues, read a lead sheet, and figure music out by ear. I'm also comfortable with rock styles.
I also have a lot of experience accompanying (musical theatre, instrumental, vocal...) and I like teaching the student how to follow a soloist. I teach students how to read lead sheets so they can read whatever they may get from a vocalist, and I teach chord theory so that they can easier recognize patterns in music when playing with an instrumentalist or vocalist.
I incorporate composition and theory into lessons, usually in conjunction with whatever piece they are learning (explain what type of chords are in their piece, or explain how they move, or why something may sound discordant or may go somewhere expected, or I may teach them phrases in music just like sentences work in English.) I definitely, however, work with students who are more serious in composition as well and talk about how to develop their pieces, how to create ideas, how to get out of a "writers block," orchestration techniques, encourage them to expand their instrumentation, etc.

I am an adult student with some piano in high school who began lessons in January, 2015. Erica is a brilliant musician. She is always ready when I arrive, fully able to remember where we left off, and always making sure that I make progress. She is 100% professional. I have learned so much from her about music theory and composition -- it has been great.

She gets it!
Quick background: I was classically trained for about 7 years in piano, starting when I was around 9. My teacher was great, and did an awesome job of driving the fundamentals.
Fast forward to more recently: Having not taken lessons for 15+ years (I had continued playing and learning...just without a teacher), I decided I wanted to pursue a bit more jazz and theory. I went back to my childhood teacher, who very honestly told me that jazz was not his forte. I took a few months of lessons with him, which helped to get me back into the swing of things, but I was really interested in jazz.
I found Erica on takelessons, and she was truly amazing! If you're looking for a teacher who is always "by the book", this isn't her. While I'm sure she can do that, she thrives in allowing you to be a musician. Her understanding of complex time signatures is great, and she really helps to chunk things up into manageable pieces.
Some of her greatest strengths, from the student's perspective, are her patience, friendly demeanor, STRONG understanding of music theory (she's a composer at heart, and I've no doubt that she's great at it), broad knowledge of music, from composers to artists, and her ability to help you learn to improvise. If I wanted to play different notes than what was on the page, within reason of course, that was ok. Having come from a classical background, that was quite refreshing.
I was always able to look forward to learning something new at my lessons; even her book recommendations have been excellent.
I'd say, because of her patience, she's a perfect teacher for adults and children alike. You really can't go wrong with Erica!
I bring 30 years performing and coaching experience to my students. I have performed as featured soloist at events ranging from Miss Texas Pageant and cruise ships to guest artist with several symphony orchestras. I have enjoyed singing with the Fort worth and Dallas operas as well as traveling with national Broadway touring shows.. I obtained my Bachelor of Music Degree from the University of North Texas and have studied with former Metropolitan Opera stars and Maestro for the Dallas Opera.
Each student is different, therefore I adjust my teaching technique accordingly. I want all o
f my students to be successful, so we begin where this can happen and then work up from there. I am classically trained and believe that a classical basis should be the foundation for all styles of singing.
Many of my students have always scored top in contests, and some have merited full scholarships to prestigious university's opera programs. I've even had two former students selected for reality television singing competitions.
I will be moving to Jersey City mid October when I plan on starting voice lessons there. I look forward to meeting you and moving forward as we find and develop your best voice.

I had taken voice lessons from Laurie for seven years before I moved away for college. During that time, my vocal ability grew in ways I could not have imagined.
Laurie has an amazing ability in helping you reach your greatest potential. She is intuitive, perceptive, and meticulous in discovering your weaknesses and helping you overcome them. Like an athletic trainer, she has an intricate knowledge of the muscles required for your performance, and she is excellent in helping you strengthen them.
Being a performer herself, Laurie is constantly evolving and honing her craft, which in turn is very beneficial for her students. Throughout my time with Laurie, she was always excited to share a new technique if she found it successful.
However, Laurie is not only an amazing teacher, she is also a wonderful person to be around. I always loved coming to her lessons, not only because I learned so much, but also because she became a great friend.

Classical Voice ·
Hi I am Evana Flores. I am Soprano 2, soon to be 18, and a senior at Coppell Highschool where I am in the A Cappella Choir and a few show choirs. Laurie and I have known each other for many years now. I started taking group class lessons with her when I was in the fourth grade for musical theatre, and then soon after began taking solo lessons for fun. She was super friendly and she is great with children and taught me good songs for auditions, how to breathe with my diaphragm, and most importantly confidence. I was in a Musical Theatre company and she was one of the directors where she was able to adapt and teach a bunch of voices from kids of varying ages. Going into middle school I signed up for school choir in 7th grade and they allowed us to take Voice at school, so I only saw Laurie sporadically. It wasn't until the summer before my junior year of high school that I sought out Laurie’s help once again. I was kind of in the rut vocally and with my confidence level because I was good, but I wasn’t improving… specifically with the All State Competition. I was doing well for my age, but I wasn’t advancing as far as I had wanted to and it was frustrating. Transitioning from a 30-minute weekly school lesson to Mrs. Lauries 1 hour+ lessons was kind of overwhelming at first because these lessons were so concentrated on technique. But by the end of that summer I had already learned how to project my sound and raise my soft pallet.
If that is not convincing enough, let me tell you how I did in my standings in the All State Process before and after her lessons. My freshman year I made the district choir (17th chair) and did not advance to the Region choir at the next round because I got 31st chair; I had to make top ten. The next year as a sophomore I made 11th chair at district and made 15th chair at the next round of Regionals so I was cut once again. That summer I went to Mrs. Laurie, and after having lessons for only a few months with her I was a million times better and I think my results from my junior year are quite telling. I made 6th chair at District, 3rd chair of the Region Choir, 6th chair at Pre-Are, and was 2nd Alternate to the All State Choir. I didn’t actually get to sing with the choir, or neither can I technically call myself an “All Stater” but now I know that I have the potential to be one if I work even harder this year, and Laurie saw that potential in me from the beginning, My junior year Laurie helped me make audition tapes for SWACDA and I made their Honor Choir. I also received a 1st Division rating on my solo at State Solo & Ensemble, where I had gotten a 2nd division rating the year before. But Laurie’s knowledge surpasses classical singing and she also helped me tremendously with show choir auditions and what not. In my show choir, Vivace, I auditioned for solos and a filler singing “Heart of Life” and was given the featured solo in Jai Ho and my John Mayer filler was put in the show.
But beyond my accomplishments, Mrs. Laurie has been a very special influence in my life. She cares for her students as their own mother would and her encouraging personality never made lessons intimidating. In my lessons I have learned how to raise my soft pallet, proper breath control, how to lift my check bones, relax my tongue, use my lips, stand, drop my jaw, and be free in my singing (which was very hard to do with choral training). But most pertinent to my voice, she found my voice as a soloist and not as a choir member. She uncovered so much of my range as a soprano and helped me feel at ease singing there. Mrs. Laurie is a wonderful person and teacher whose expertise is rare to come about these days. She always has the best in mind for her students and her passion for teaching and voice and performing are so evident. To her potential students, take from her! I highly recommend it.
Thanks for everything Mrs. Laurie. Love, Evana

To Whom it May Concern:
It is with the utmost pleasure that I recommend Laurie as a private vocal instructor. Having known Mrs. Laurie G. since 2006, at which point I was only 12 years old, I can honestly say that she is one of the few people who had such an impact on my life as to shape it musically and otherwise. When we first met, she recognized a vocal talent that I had not yet realized and she encouraged me to pursue it. Thus, I joined the middle school choir (which was, at that point, under her instruction) and became one of her private students.
In the nearly 4 years that I took voice lessons from Mrs. Laurie G., I received a solid classical training experience that prepared me for a multitude of accomplishments. While under her instruction, I earned the Lewisville Independent School District Outstanding Soloist Award three years in a row, performed soloist roles in the musicals Once Upon a Mattress, Annie, and Aladdin, sang at a few private gigs, and gained admission to the vocal department at the esteemed Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in downtown Dallas. After starting high school there, I went on to become a member of the 2011 All-State Choir, represent Booker T. Washington HSPVA at two SWACDA conventions, and perform in and direct Abbondanza, the school’s annual musical production. Additionally, I became a member of the Booker T. Washington HSPVA Opera Workshop, performing as one of the Three Ladies in a production of Die Zauberfl�te and in the role of Adele in Die Fledermaus, as well as gaining behind-the-scenes access to numerous events at the Dallas Opera. Lastly, I became a member of the Booker T. Washington Jazz Singers, a contemporary jazz group, which won the 2013 Monterey Jazz Competition and became one of two high school groups in the nation to be featured at the 2013 Monterey Jazz Festival.
Laurie gave me the foundation I needed to succeed in classical and contemporary vocal environments and helped me build the personal confidence I needed to put myself out there and strive for success. She always goes above and beyond the call of duty, endeavoring to assist her students in their pursuits in any way that she can. She is an individual that I will always hold near and dear and I know that, if given the chance, she will be the same for you.

Hi, there! My name is Amanda, and I can't wait to meet you! I'm a native Brazilian who's also fluent in Spanish and Italian. I am super passionate about education, and I love to help people learn music and foreign languages - for me these subjects are completely connected with each other, as the teaching approaches are very similar.
I went to The New School and earned a double degree in Jazz Performance and Liberal Arts in 2011.
In regards to music, I've been teaching private lessons since 1996 and have loved helping my students with music competitions, becoming professional, and being
accepted in top Universities. I have an extensive experience as a side musician, studio/session instrumentalist, as well as a composer, arranger and producer, and believe that sharing it can be valuable teaching tool for music students of all levels.
On the Foreign Languages side, I've helped numerous students with short and long term goals, such as a business trip, being able read novels, or just being able to have a conversation in Portuguese, Spanish or Italian.
I'm a passionate and patient person and my teaching style is totally customized according to what each student needs, what he or she likes. I'm also a big motivator, and will show you great things that you can do with the practice.
I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Amanda is a phenomenal musician who also happens to be an incredibly dedicated educator. She has so much passion for music and for helping students reach their potential! When I started taking private lessons with her I wasn't sure if I would be able to keep up with practice because of my really busy schedule. Amanda not only helped me to improve my playing but also taught me how to manage my time for efficient practice, always infusing every lesson with her amazing enthusiasm!
I'm really happy I found Amanda and I look forward to continuing learning from her: I highly recommend her

I have known Amanda for about a year. She has a deep sense of musicality that cannot be imitated or faked, and a vast knowledge of genres, arrangements, and technique.
Beyond the stats and her intimidatingly impressive portfolio and collaborations, what most impresses me is her grounded nature, thorough preparation, thoughtful communication & teaching, and kindness.
To know and learn from her as a musician and person is an opportunity I hope you have the privilege to take.

I'm a very busy lawyer and could never find a class or a teacher that would work with my schedule, so I felt that I'd never be able to learn a foreign language, and "retain it." Amanda was an amazing teacher. She'd go to my office, and understand my crazy/flexible schedule, and we'd work one-on-one on my own goals, which were to speak and understand the language, while also learning about the culture.
During our first class, Amanda asked me about my passions. I told her that I love listening to rock and that I used to practice Capoeira. So, she got me specific texts about Capoeira (in Portuguese) for us to practice reading, and every other week, she would make me learn a new song from a Brazilian rock band containing some of the new words/vocabulary that we were working on. Instead of trying to memorize words, I was just singing them while driving to work!
Totally awesome, Amanda never wasted my time and went straight into teaching what I wanted in a super fun way. I couldn't even believe that I was having fun while learning a new language!

Learn Guitar Now: How to Read Tabs
Although learning to read sheet music is a valuable skill for any musician, most guitarists prefer to use a different type of notation known as guitar tablature or guitar tabs. Guitar tabs give a basic visual representation of the neck of your guitar and use numbers to indicate which notes are to be played. Learning how to read tabs is pretty simple, and, once you get the hang of it, you can easily learn new songs or write down compositions of your own.
