Thomas V.

Wantagh, NY

About Thomas

Thomas holds an associates degree in music performance from Nassau community college, and recently finished a bachelors degree in Music Education from Hofstra University. Thomas has also studied privately with many of the finest musicians New York City has to offer; including Martin Wind, Alan Hampton, Mike Frost, and many others. Thomas has extensive performance experience, from Orchestral music (Nassau Symphony Orchestra, Hofstra Symphony) to Jazz Combos and bigbands, as well as hard rock groups, Top 40/Dance, Salsa, Jambands, Reggae, and even Hiphop. Thomas has performed with and alongside
many notable acts and musicians, such as The Wailers, Fishbone, Bobby Rondinelli (Black Sabbath, Rainbow) The Deep, Joe DeMaio (Rihanna, The Mystic) Martin Wind, Ken Talve, and many more!
Teaching privately since 2008, Thomas has vast experience not only with a wide variety of students, but also of instruments; specializing in Strings and Percussion. He has helped students achieve excellent NYSSMA scores, as well as prepare for recitals and gigs of their own, and to equal merit has helped dozens of passionate hobbyists discover the delightful inner workings of the music they love. With such a wide variety of experience performing not only different styles of music, but also on several different instruments, he is well equipped to help any student grow to their fullest potential, from young beginners to adult professionals.

*** Lesson Details ***
I take a great amount of pride in what I do, and I am very proud of the results I have achieved with every single student. Lessons are planned on an individual basis, in order to facilitate success for every student, based on their own needs, requirements, interests, and goals.

With me, students will learn Etudes, Scales, Pieces, and anything else they wish to know! (including instrument upkeep, music history, ext.)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, Two drum sets, electric basses, guitar and bass amplifiers, guitars, two double-basses, over a dozen music theory books and music encyclopedias, and a Mac book.

*** Travel Equipment ***
students should have their own instrument for piano, guitar, bass lessons. I can provide a bass for double-bass lessons. I can provide an amplifier for all lessons, though I recommend the student have their own. I do own a travel drum set that can be transported to lessons upon request, but all drum students should own their own drum set to practice and perform on.

*** Specialties ***
I am experienced with Strings, (orchestral as well as electric guitar and bass), piano, and percussion.

Our son had his first lesson with Thomas last night. Thomas is extremely patient and was able to keep him engaged throughout the entire lesson. That's HUGE because our son is autistic and has trouble focusing. It's only been one lesson but I recommend Thomas! Very fun and professional.

Imraan K.

Mount Vernon, NY

About Imraan

I'm a pro saxophonist in NYC, currently performing both in the NYC area and internationally.

In the last 5 years, I have been performing with various bands in the area, spanning rock, funk, soul, Latin, and especially jazz. Performing has taken me to France, Switzerland, Italy, China, and most recently aboard luxury cruise ships.

I have been teaching privately and through a private music school for the past 10 years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I offer three distinct types of lessons.

1) For 7-12 grade music students, I offer lessons geared towards preparing you for the NYSSMA compet
ition. We work on the basic requirements for participation, can work together to narrow down the options and select the right piece for you to perform, and improve your musicality as a whole. I have sent many students to NYSSMA, all with positive results. 2) My more expansive lessons are for beginner musicians and up. We work as basically as scales, modes, and fingerings, as well as a little bit of jazz history. As you progress, we dig deeper into jazz theory, focusing on the standards and improvisational theory. Like anything else, you get out of it what you put into it, and as long as you are willing to work towards becoming a better player, you will. 3) For NON-SAXOPHONE students with an interest in jazz improvisational techniques, I offer jazz improvisation lessons. This requires an intermediate level of proficiency on your instrument. We cover standards, different techniques to apply over different patterns of chord changes, and even basic elements of composition.

I like to keep the atmosphere light and positive during lessons, so we can have a good time and still be learning. I love to work on appropriate music that the student suggests, or has an interest in. Pending the level of the student, we may even arrange for special appearances at some of my performances. The more the merrier.

Excellent

My son Nicholas, 10 yrs old, has been taking saxophone lessons with Imraan for about a month. Searching for a young motivated teacher who is up to date with todays music is very difficult. My fear was for Nicholas to get discouraged in his saxophone playing and music with a non motivated instructor.
Imraan has been the perfect match for Nick. He is not only an excellent saxophone player but a great instructor. He motivates my son with his saxophone playing, has patients with his teachings and with kids, is up to date with todays music and most important, my son cant wait for his next lesson.

Imraan, Im glad we met you and look forward to hearing my son play in concert with you someday.

Love Working With Him!

I study jazz saxophone with Imraan once a week. I originally found him through a recommendation from a friend, and was using him to prepare me for the All State NYSSMA auditions in my senior year of high school. The lessons were so helpful that I continued through college... Since then I've improved so much. He understands how to break down complicated information and present it to you in a way that you'll be able to understand and process. He is active in the music community, so you can drop in on a show and see him and one of his bands in action... Worth a visit.

Also, he always has a great selection of music to choose from for you to learn, and a great set of helpful tips and tools that work great for me! Highly recommend!!!!

Rockville Centre, NY

About Greg

My promise to you is to get playing and enjoying making music. I believe the world needs more music and I committed and enthusiastic about making that happen for you. So if you feel the same way, let's rock as they say! :)

I am a Berklee College of Music attedee. I have been teaching students of all ages for over 25 years. Beginners are my specialty. It brings me great satisfaction to see my students grow into good players. I teach reading, theory, harmony, scales, riffs, lics as well as many styles including rock, blues, jazz, funk, folk, reggae and classical studies, etc. Let's not
forget your favorite songs.

I am a also a music producer specializing in producing singer songwriters, bands. etc. I write songs for artists as well as with artists. I have also scored TV and radio commercials. My recording and producing experience goes back for over 15 years.

I was the co-author of Steve Vai's first guitar book "Guitar Extravaganza for which I did all the tablature.

I have also worked Dave Rosenthal of Billy Joel's band when he was with Richie Blackmore's band Rainbow. Richie was the guitarist in Deep Purple. I wrote out all the orchestra parts for the album he was working on.

After Berklee I studied guitar privately for two years with Mitch Coodley who was a teacher at Berklee. This helped sharpen my skills more as a guitar player.

Recently I recorded aand produced a song "Together We Can" with one of my students for the Together We Can contest they were having in all the public schools in New York State. The song one first prize.

I have played with, recorded and produced with Grammy award winning drummer Steve Loecher for many years.

My 7 year old son has dream of being a rock star so I started him with an electric guitar. I spent a long time looking for the right teacher and am glad we found Greg - he is comfortable with both acoustic and electric guitars as well as being a performer himself. Another thing that I am happy about is that Greg is teaching my son how to read music properly, not just how to get by like too many guitarists out there. I expect that once my 7 year old knows how to read and gets past the beginner phase, Greg will also teach him theory. This is the old school training that too many teachers and students skip today. Good for you Greg!

Our son has been taking guitar lessons for about 3 months. We chose Greg because of his expertise, knowledge and ability to teach. Learning to read music might not always be easy but Greg was able to convey to our son the importance of this skill. Greg has taught my son the beauty of playing the guitar that now is very confident and happy to play . Greg is always reliable, extremely flexible and dependable. am happy to see my son learning new skills. also very happy that Greg is teaching him everything needs to know about playing the guitar.
I would highly recommend Greg as an instructor. we are extremely impressed by his abilities and professionalism.
