I can teach students theory, harmony, ear training, improvisation, how to play their favorite songs, how to create their own music, and how to read both tablature and sheet music.

About Chase

I started playing guitar when I was in the 8th grade. At that time I was into punk, and as I got older I moved into listening to classic rock, then blues, then all sorts of jazz and jam bands, and now classical and sacred art. And my playing of the guitar has following the same trajectory: I play

Chase and I worked together doing online lessons for guitar for a number of months. Chase is an incredible instructor. He helped me understand how to analyze and replicate my music tastes in a super effective way. His teachings on improvisation definitely brought out the best in my playing. I would highly recommend learning from Chase, whether you are a beginner or expert.
Nichole Coyne
Chase and I did not work together long because of other commitments. However, in the short time we did work together I learned a lot. Chase is easy going, highly skilled, very patient, and his teaching style is such that it fosters student confidence. I was really nervous at first, because I wasn't sure what to expect. Chase quickly made me feel at ease during the lesson. We only had half hour lessons, but that was definitely enough time to learn new materiel and make progress. I highly recommend him for guitar lessons.

My son is 7 and really seems to like Chase. He came well prepared and finally someone has started to teach him some rock songs .

Mr. Tarantola has taught my three kids to play piano and to read music. Their confidence in their music abilities has grown over the years as they continue to learn. The skills they learned with Mr. Tarantola has helped them in school music, band and in learning new instruments such as drum set and clarinet. Mr. Tarantola has the ability and personality to teach all ages including new beginners such as I - who began lessons in my 40's. Highly recommend!

Rosdeli has studied the Voice for 5 years at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary music. Her high level of musicianship continues to lead her to successfully sing in a variety of settings, from an intimate duo to fronting Big Band. Using highly developed vocal instruction methods, Rosdeli specializes in the development and control of the voice, focusing on techniques such as breath control, resonance, and posture. Being that no two voices are the same, Rosdeli listens to each individual student's voice and chooses vocal instructions for their specific voice.

About Rosdeli

Rosdeli will help you open your throat chakra like a flower, in the way it is meant to blossom. Being around her as my teacher in this setting is more than comforting, it is soothing, it feels natural.

Her methods make SENSE. The student receives immediate feedback from their own vocal channel. With her embodied notions of what she can hear and feel, she intuitively guides you into the direction of what needs to change - so you can open up more.

She is the greatest listener and she has taught me a lot with her listening alone. She is the only person I will ever train with again. Every voice lesson I had before hers was nothing close in comparison.

my lesson with Rosdeli was one of the best experiences with the music teacher I have ever had. She blends a keen sense of intuition unique for every student with a strong foundation of a wide variety of musical training and background. She is thorough , patient, and dedicated to the success of every student. She taught me
warm ups, how to control my voice, different methods of singing, projection, music theory, and ear training.

Hello! My name is Jenny, and I've been teaching violin for 20 years. I started playing violin when I was 9 years old through my school's music program, and went on to double major at college for Violin and Piano Performance. The violin is a incredible instrument, waiting to tell your story by how you play it! I realize that no two people learn the same way, and am dedicated to helping each student understand fully what they are learning. When I was in elementary school orchestra, I didn't understand the way the teacher taught to read the notes, so I followed those around me and didn't learn to read music well. I was embarrassed and tried to hide this from everyone for years, until I realized I was just hurting myself and learned the right way. I can promise that I don't give up on any student, and work hard to explain everything fully. There are no stupid questions! I specialize in proper holding and technique, bowing styles, reading music, and playing a variety of styles. I have ...

"Having not had any formal lessons in the past, I found myself stuck in a box for the past 13 years. What made me choose Eric as my instructor was his assurance that 'no matter what your goal is, I will get you there!'. This resonated with me as I needed a mentor who could turn me into a virtuoso in the course of a couple of years. In only 1 month, Eric has taught me all shapes and positions of the pentatonic scales, opening up the fretboard and allowing me to cover the entire neck when playing. He also explained the theory behind building chords and adding various melodic nuances to the rhythm section. Now we are dabbling with the dark arts of the harmonic minor scale. Eric is highly knowledgeable about music of all genres and generations and he is happy to share his own personal experiences and musical journey with me on days when I need motivation. He focuses on teaching the music that you want to learn and on songs that incorporate the theory is covered, which makes for a perfect marriage between theory and practice, and makes the lessons more fun and fulfilling. It is rare for a musician and a person of his caliber to share his knowledge so generously and patiently, and it is an honor and a privilege to be guided by him. I am hopeful and excited to see where this musical journey takes me with Eric at the wheel!"

"As an adult, time to practice is a luxury. I really like that the practice pieces are music that I like and are challenging enough for me to enjoy the time spent. Also, he takes time to answer my questions thoroughly, so that I actually feel like I am learning. He is patient and isn't hard on me when I make mistakes. I have started lessons a couple of times, without success. I believe Edward, by far has the best technique and teaching style, for me to enjoy this learning experience."
