Marc W. New York, NY

About Marc

Percussionist and composer Marc W. was born in Switzerland, where he studied classical percussion at the Geneva Conservatory. He has lived in the United States since the 1980's, where he studied composition and mallet technique on the vibraphone at the Berklee School in Boston, then moved to New York City to further his jazz performance and percussion skills. Since that time, Marc has toured the U.S., Europe, Japan and Brazil, and can be heard on over 20 recordings, including 4 solo albums.

Fun and worthwhile experience

I had never played guitar before and Jordan was very encouraging. He took his time with teaching me new things and always gave me productive feedback to work on. He is super talented and was able to teach me any song that I threw his way (I constantly wanted to learn pop punk music). I was very sad when he was moving to NY and am still looking for a teacher to replace him. He is highly recommended.

Jordan is the best!

I decided to try a new hobby, playing guitar, and Jordan became my teacher. I was not very good, but Jordan was very positive and patient, which made me feel less hard on myself. You can also tell he has a strong passion and enthusiasm for music, which made me want to return for more lessons - because it was fun! I hope anyone who is looking for a great learning experience chooses Jordan as his or her teacher.

Well surpassed my expectations!

I have been taking lessons for less than a month, and I have found that because of my teacher's skill and guidance with building solid fundamentals with me, I have seen more progress than I would have ever expected in such a short amount of time. This teacher is creative, intuitive, patient, and very encouraging, which makes the lessons and learning process both challenging and fun. He doesn't "cookie cutter" his lessons, rather, he tailors it to my needs and abilities. I have complete confidence that all my musical playing goals will be met - and them some - because of my teacher. So far, my expectations have been well surpassed, and I would highly recommend this teacher!
Allison P. New York, NY

About Allison

Hi! My name is Allison and I'm an opera singer. I fell madly in love with music and singing as a young child and was bitten by the opera bug at age 15. Ever since seeing that first opera, I've never looked back. I did lead roles in my high school musicals, then got my Bachelor of Music and my Master of Music degrees in Classical Voice and Opera Performance both from competitive conservatories. Ever since graduation, I've been lucky enough to make my work as a professional singer. I've traveled all over the country and even internationally bringing this amazing art form to audiences. Now I feel like my dream has come true because I get to do what I love: sing! Pavarotti said, "I think a life in music is a life beautifully spent and this is what I have devoted my life to." I feel ...

Thorough,Honest,Energetic,Focused, Fun.

I'm a recording artist who sings most genres of music (reggae, soft rock, pop, r&b). I also do a lot club gigs (every weekend & sometimes mid-week) where I have to sing 3 one hour sets most of the time. So I developed a lot of bad habits. Allison is a blessing, not only is she correcting the habits, she's also helping my voice to survive for the rest of my life. I can truly say that I'm feeling improvement in my vocals after a few classes (& practicing at home).I'd highly recommend her as a vocal instructor, coach & teacher for all levels. I always leave the class energized.

A great experience!

I highly recommend Marni for voice lessons. She is an extremely talented teacher in both the mechanics and creative aspects of singing. Often, she explains concepts to me in a visual manner because it is familiar to me (I have experience in visual art). I'm amazed at how much I've improved my vocal range/quality in a short time, and how much more comfortable I feel when I sing (both physical comfort and improved confidence). Marni is a gifted artist who will help you find your unique singing voice.

Laura K. New York, NY

About Laura

Music is definitely the universal language, and there isn't a genre I don't love; it's important to me that that aspect be brought to lessons, as well! From humble New Jersey beginnings to an opera career, I've seen the power of what music can do! Whether it's opera, musical theater, folk, rock, or just public speaking, anything YOU love to do, I would love to teach you! Having taught all ages and levels, from first graders to adults, from someone who's never sung a note in his or her life to semi-professionals, I cater my lessons to what YOU as a student need and are interested in. Lessons shouldn't be a chore - I like to foster an environment you look forward to being a part of! I also think that music, like any sport, is hard work, and takes seriously practice; even hobbies take ...

Awesome teacher! patient, knowledgeable, & creative

I'm a complete beginner, could barely sing in tune. I decided to take lessons for fun. but whoa was i surprised at the progress I've made with Laura in just a few short months. She has catered to my individual needs, and has made my learning experience fun. She works at my pace so i never feel rushed or bored. She teaches singing lessons in a way anyone can understand. Her background in opera means she can sing and teach her students amazing vocal range. She taught me anything is possible with hard work and dedication! I've learned so much with her, it's hard to put it all in a short review. Pick her and you won't be disappointed! Thank you Laura!

Laura is a really good and nice teacher. She is patient to answer all of my questions.I improved a lot in a short period of time with her tips on singing. She's not only just teach you how to sing, she also talks some histories of music and different examples or even her experiences to me. She can make an exercise into a fun way to do. I learned a lot from her and I gain more confident on singing. I'm always looking forward to take lessons with her. She's such a great singer and vocal coach!!

In what is surely a testament to her teaching ability, Briana's passions for music and learning - independently or in combination - are infectious. Briana understands the importance of treating and training the complete singer, addressing both the student's both physical/technical and personal/artistic capacities. She is versatile, open-minded, empathetic, and always delightful. I am honored to be her colleague and happy to recommend her.

Briana is an excellent and inspiring teacher to work with. In my experience, she brings a sense of excitement to the subject of singing that is contagious and motivated me to put my best foot forward not just in our meetings, but also in my practicing at home. Beyond repertoire and technique, her expertise extends into the physical and emotional aspects of singing. She is incredibly sensitive to where the student is coming from, and is able to meet him/her at that level. The ideas she shared have stuck with me and continue to help me as I develop further.
