Learning to sing can be scary! It is my mission to provide a safe, supportive learning environment for students where they can develop skills to be a confident performer. It is important to me that students study in genres that they are the most comfortable; I myself have a love of all genres of music, including classical, musical theater, pop, rock, folk, and even punk. In my studio, students will learn and maintain a healthy technique for their instrument to be able to achieve any of their creative or professional goals. In addition to learning voice technique, we will strive towards a well-rounded music education that includes music theory, ear-training, and music literacy.

I had a great lesson with Kristen! I'm a total beginner with not much background in singing or music, but she explained clearly what I could expect to learn and develop in the process. She taught in a way that I could feel comfortable and embrace the awkwardness of learning something new for the first time. I look forward to more lessons with her.
Belen
After three lessons, we have found Kristen to be very encouraging and supporting. She speaks to our 13-year-old daughter’s personal needs for improvement.

Awesome. Was nervous about being really rusty from a long layoff, but Justin was easy-going and unassuming. Thank you!

Justin is a great guitar teacher to my 10 year old son. He has shown patience with a child that has a hard time focusing. He has taught him to both read and write music. My son gets excited for lessons now. We are very pleased with him and can highly recommend him to others with children.

Laying down grooves, knowing the fretboard and coming up with bass lines are just a few of the subjects we can work on!

About Nadav

Hi there, My name is Nadav and I have been a professional guitar player and teacher for most of my life now. I have a very extensive experience playing festivals and venues in the U.S and abroad and have been teaching beginner and advanced guitar/bass and musical ensemble classes for 15 years.

Bill T.
Speaking from the standpoint of a colleague of Nadav’s for many years and professional musician/educator myself, Nadav is the real deal. He is my top recommendation, without question, for anyone looking to study the guitar and/or music in general.

Nadav is an extremely gifted and skilled musician, composer, and bandleader with very deep understanding of playing the guitar. He has the experience and versatility to so in a multitude of different styles ranging from R&B, Pop, Funk, Jazz and Ethiopian groove music (check out his incredible band: Abbess Orchestra). He is also extremely kind, has a gentle yet “matter-of-fact” demeanor and is the consummate professional.

For anyone who has interest in learning the guitar and needs an instructor, no matter their experience level, it’s impossible to go wrong with Nadav. Just check him out and sign up!
Eran
I was a self taught guitar player since a very early age, so when I met Nadav for the first time I already knew many songs and chords. But my technique was a mess.
Nadav helped me establish a healthy and meticulous practice routine that fixed my technique very quickly.
I would recommend him as a teacher for every level.
Randy
Great teacher with good vibes! Nadav showed me great ways to practice harmony and soloing on the guitar. Highly recommended.

I studied with Abel for 3 years as an adult student and had a great experience. He’s a very dedicated drummer and teacher, is patient and smart, and is also a cool guy to hang out with. He became a great mentor, and I wouldn’t be the drummer I am today without him!

"When I began taking piano lessons with Ruth, I had some elementary experience playing instruments years ago. I am an older adult student and although I hesitated initially to start learning again, I am very happy that I did start taking piano with Ruth. She understands exactly my strong and weak points and suggests better ways for me to practice. She is patient, tactful and encouraging and helps me working on my technique. I've been enjoying my classes with Ruth immensely. And I've been enjoying listening to her playing as well. Any time, at the end of our class, I ask her to play a different piece for me, she does it beautifully. I can highly recommend Ruth for children and adults alike."
