Danielle L. Rosedale, NY

About Danielle

I have been taking the world by surprise since the age of 4. I began studying at Queens College at 6 years old and was a recital pianist by the age of 12. I was a consumer of music, from the Music Theory lessons on Saturdays, piano lessons on Thursdays and voice lessons on Saturday afternoons, my life was filled with music. It is to no one's surprise that I completed my first demo at the age of 13 and was performing for Queens Colleges audiences at 14. I went on the rank high in the NYSSMA series in both piano and voice. I also went on to study music in college and began touring with gospel troupes nationally. Since then I has done many workshops, Master Classes, tour dates, theatre shows etc. Too many to date. I am a sought after teacher for voice, piano and broadway singing. I train

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!!!!

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.
