My teaching starts with a good foundation for sound and technique and expands to teach music that is fin and inspiring to each individual student. If the student would like to learn to play jazz, I have a method which will shaves off years of hard work and frustration. All my teaching is geared towards giving the student good basics along with a practical application to today's music scene.

About Rick
I’ve always loved teaching from a young age; finding new ways to break down complex ideas and techniques and making it fun and easy is something that gives me a lot of satisfaction. If you want to play your favorite songs on saxophone, I can save you years of frustration and slow progress.

At the bottom of this page, I have a YouTube video of 3 of my sax students' incredibly fast progress. None of them had ever played saxophone, You can do that too! It’s easy and fun. No boring scales, exercises and dumb tunes. Just a simple, easy way to becoming a great sounding sax player in 1/10th the time. This method has worked for over 1000 students and works 100% of the time if you commit to practice.

I guarantee if you commit to practicing 30 minutes 5 days a week for 4 months and you don't see the success in the video I will give you ALL
of your money back. I have 3 Grammy nominations but the proof of what i can do for you is in this video. Search this title on Youtube:
"Demo of My Sax Students Improvising Progress- 5th lesson to 16th lesson" or just click the video at the bottom of this page.

There is nothing like the crisp, clear, beautiful tone of the clarinet. I have a great appreciation for the beauty of this instrument.
Mozart himself had a great love for it too, as he was once quoted in a letter to say: "“Never,” wrote Mozart to Stadler, “would I have thought that a clarinet could be capable of imitating the human voice as deceptively as it is imitated by you. Truly your instrument has so soft and lovely a tone that nobody with a heart could resist it.”
Why not learn the clarinet? It is truly a gift to this Earth!

I emphasize teaching proper technique, the ability to express oneself through music and having the utmost fun, enjoyable experience while playing it.
Supplementary books can be purchased by for me for a discounted price, and I will also provide helpful worksheets and homework material designed by myself.

About Ashley
Hi! My name is Ashley and I'm a recent both music and writing graduate of William Paterson University.

I am a passionate multi-instrumentalist.

Do you want to learn how to play your instrument and make up your own music too one day?

If you'd like to try out a teacher who truly loves what they do, I may be right selection. My primary instrument is piano, though I play several others such as flute, clarinet, guitar and violin. I am most proficient on piano, flute, clarinet and guitar so I feel more comfortable teaching these instruments in order to give students the best possible musical foundation. All students are welcome to learn from me, and I have a soft spot and understanding for special needs students.

Music has been in my life since I was a young child, as my grandfather who was proficient on both organ and clarinet
, taught me how to read music and play keyboard. Music is something that can never escape my life! I practice my instruments on a daily basis and avidly compose my own music as well. Besides being involved with piano at school, I was a member of the William Paterson Symphony Orchestra where I played second violin, as well as a member of the school's flute ensemble. My goal is to have a career in which I can instill within my students the same love, endearment and appreciation for music that has grown with me over the years.

I am someone who truly has a passionate love for music, as it is what my whole life is about and brings me immense happiness on a daily basis. I am not just a robotic teacher who is providing lessons as a financial opportunity, but someone who honestly cares about the growth of a student's musical ability and love for music itself.

A huge part of music is not just learning how to play the notes correctly, but to come to understand the amazement that can be experienced from the act of playing an instrument. To be the most successful in any music related business, I feel that it is essential to love what you do and to practice as much as you possibly can. Love and practice can take someone very far if they are truly dedicated to their art.

Witnessing a student enjoy what they're doing while improving their skills in the process is an amazing feeling for both student and teacher. I want to show people what it is I love about music so much, and hopefully instill within them the same love and passion.

I would like possible future students to know that I am not like any other instructor, as generic as this may sound. I have a true, fervent passion for music which I yearn to share with others.
Whether music is a way of life or just a hobby for someone, it can be something that sticks with them for the remainder of their lives and brings great happiness and enjoyment.

I specialize in trad jazz and swing. I don’t teach THE INSTRUMENT - you can get that from others; I teach THE MUSIC. I can offer you something you won’t get elsewhere: an understanding of the role the clarinet and sax play in a trad or swing band. How do you choose what notes to play in the ensembles and on your solo? Whether you've played other styles and would like to learn trad/swing, you've played trad/swing but want to hone your skills, or you're new to music altogether, I CAN HELP YOU.

About Dan
I’ve made my living for nearly thirty years specializing in jazz of the 1920s and ’30s - the genres commonly referred to as “traditional jazz” (or “trad”) and swing. I’m the clarinet instructor at the New Orleans Trad Jazz Camp, the San Diego Adult Trad Jazz Camp, and the newly founded New York Hot Jazz Camp.

I don’t actually teach THE INSTRUMENT - that’s something you can get from thousands of professional instructors. What I teach is THE MUSIC. I have something unique to offer you, which you won’t be able to get from other instructors: a comprehensive understanding of the role the clarinet and saxophone play in a traditional jazz or swing band. How do you choose what notes to play (or not play) during the ensembles and on your solo?

Whether you've played other styles of music and would like to enter the trad jazz/swing arena, you'
ve played trad jazz/swing but would like to hone your skills, or you're new to music altogether, I CAN HELP YOU.

I have a Bachelor Degree in Clarinet Performance from FIU. I teach clarinet following the same principles I use in my piano method: Brain-Based Piano Method.

About Leidys
Hi, I love to teach children as young as 3 years old and adults using our own Brain-Based Piano Method, a Mindful and Comprehensive System to learn music and piano that incorporates the latest scientific findings on how we learn. We, my husband and I, started creating this method in 2012 when we could not find a comprehensive method created with today's children needs in mind. We want our students to truly enjoy music making, and to achieve that they need to know what they are doing, they need to learn to understand how music works. We are proud to say that our method is fun, engaging, effective and practical. our students learn from early on the basics of music: ear training, music theory, form, piano technique, reading and writing notes, and more. But more than anything else, we encourage our students to be creative from the very begin
ning. Our method is a complete system for learning the piano that includes books, CDs, rewards, teaching materials, musical story books and video tutorials accessible online. When you Join us, you will become part of a creative and dynamic studio! You will learn how to see the connections present in music and to transfer all that knowledge to other aspects of your lives. I hope to meet you soon to start a very exciting musical learning journey!

My daughter loves going to piano class, and asks when she is going back. I am amazed by the things that she has learned so quickly, and in such a short period of time. Each class introduces her to something new, or allows her to strengthen her skills in a new way. This method of teaching piano is so innovative because my daughter has learned how to play the right and left hand of a musical score with clapping and body movements. She has also learned to conduct, play with 5 fingers, and sing songs. All of this, and she has only had 4 classes. The connection to math and reading are amazing, and are evident during each moment. Highly recommended.

Our family experience with Leidys and Mihai was a wonderful one. They know how to incorporate the children into the classroom and made them feel important, which is great for the children's development. They were very kind and loving to my children. They are great people who are generous of their time and knowledge. They look forward to building bonds not only with the children, but also with the whole family. They give tips and suggestions on Music Education. They became friends to us and to my children! We highly recommend them to instill in children the love of Music in all its forms. They also provide piano classes for adults and their method is great!!! Only great things can be said about these amazing and caring teachers!!

About Miguel
I am a professional saxophonist and recording artist with 14 years of playing experience. I studied Jazz Saxophone at the Manhattan School of Music and then William Paterson University, where I graduated with a Bachelors degree. I am currently pursuing my Masters Degree in Music Education at Towson University. I have performed original music with my jazz group for the last 5 years across New York, New Jersey, Maryland and D.C.

I have enjoyed helping students of all ages reach their fullest potential and simultaneously find lasting joy and excitement in music. I think these qualities are so important for anyone trying to improve th
eir musical skills! I enjoy passing on all of the knowledge I possibly can to my students, crafting our lessons to their individual learning styles and comfort levels.

Miguel is a great teacher.....I'm an adult learning to read music and play an instrument for the first time. He's knowledgeable, patient, and wants to make sure I learn the basic foundation skills to build on. He's always on time, pleasant and interested in my progress. He's also flexible, wanting to make sure I'm enjoying the experience. I wasn't sure what to expect, but this introduction to playing exceeds my expectations. I feel very fortunate to have Miguel leading the way.

Hello!

I am a private music instructor specializing in woodwind instruments looking to take on clarinet, flute and saxophone students!

My lessons consist of a well balanced coverage of exercises (scales, note patterns, etudes, duets, major repertoire, etc) geared towards building a solid foundation in playing technique. This allows each student to be accurate and expressive with a sense of ease in their playing! Students of the studio are also thrown into the world of music! They are strongly encouraged to attend concerts, listen to music regularly, and attend masterclasses. The goal is not just to learn an instrument, but to also develop a life-long love and appreciation for music!

I am very proud to say that my students soar through their band and orchestra programs in school and obtain a sound quality/sense of musicality way beyond their grade level! The majority of my students excel past their school music programs! They join youth/honor bands and orchestras, chamber ...

About Carter
I believe that everyone has the ability to enjoy and be expressive on an instrument. It is miss instruction and a lack of passion in music education that allows students to become frustrated and bored, ultimately pushing them to quit their instruments.

My goal as a music educator is not only to teach the mechanics of an instrument, but to also inspire a life-long passion for music. Therefore I make a point to encourage students to explore all the music there is to be had in their surrounding environment! This includes attending concerts, listening to great recordings and savoring all the music that our modern-day media has to offer!

With this consistent musical exploration I teach a thorough curriculum of scales, exercises, duets and standard solo repertoire pieces. Surrounding all this is a foundation in music theory. This pedagogi
cal study will enable a fun and easy experience when students pick up their instruments to perform music!

In addition to this private study I strongly encourage my students to pursue extra-curricular musical activities outside their school music programs. This includes auditioning for honor bands/orchestras, chamber music, music competitions and effective musical examinations such as Certificate of Merit. I believe a constant setting and achieving of goals is the foundation of growth in anything we do and music is no exception.

I am proud to say that the majority of my students develop great interest in classical music, fueling them to push past their difficulties and achieve a high standard of musical performance!

Before beginning lessons with Carter, playing clarinet was something that I dreaded to do to say the least. Once I started lessons I experienced exponential growth in my playing abilities and began to enjoy the instrument. Fast forward 6 years, because of the help of Carter, I have the opportunity to perform in prestigious youth groups, and have experiences that I wouldn't have had otherwise. Because of my lessons I have developed a love for playing clarinet and music that I wouldn't have had without Carter. -Matthew 6 years

Carter has been instrumental in my son's growth and development as a musician and clarinetist. He has worked with my son over six years and has displayed patience, exceptional teaching ability and coaching, and clear talent as a musician. Due to Carter's support and teaching over the years, my son has realized tremendous success. He has been First Chair in his Wind Ensemble group at school, a member of the Pacific Symphony Youth Wind Ensemble, and a member of the California All-State Music Ensemble. I strongly believe that, without Carter, these accomplishments would have not been possible!

"My daughter started flute lessons with Carter 4 years ago, and it has been an immensely positive experience. Carter is very knowledgeable and professional. He strikes exactly the right balance between encouraging my daughter and challenging her. As a consequence, she has gone from a beginner to a very proficient player in a children's orchestra. Carter also helps his students to enlarge their musical activity by giving concerts, joining ensemble groups and listening to other musicians. I would highly recommend him as a teacher to either beginners or more advanced players."

I have been teaching beginning and intermediate bands for the past 8 years. I love teaching beginners to help them figure out how to accomplish learning an instrument. It is a challenging thing to do, but I make learning a new instrument fun and as easy as I can. I have been playing the Clarinet for over 20 years and have a concentration from Nazareth College of Rochester in all woodwind instruments. I have taught privately for 10 years now on all band instruments as well as Piano! I enjoy playing the bassoon in my free time as well as all woodwinds in Pit Orchestras around the Rochester, NY area, and I play the clarinet for the Eastman Community Music School's Music Educator Wind Ensemble. I would love the opportunity to share my love of music and instruments with you.

About Rebecca
I have been teaching in Public Schools for 8 years and teaching privately for 10. I love teaching beginners through the intermediate level. Students just starting off learning an instrument need an experience that is going to be encouraging and fun. I have taught ages 5 through adult on all band instruments and piano. Work with me and I will help you to learn an instrument, read music, and have fun while doing it! Learning to play an instrument is a life long skill that will last forever!

My goal with my students is to create an efficient system. I want your hour of daily practice to yield the most amount of progress. I am interested in working with advanced players who want a diagnosis of bad habits that are hard to recognize on your own.

Things I like to talk about include body cues for nerves, injury prevention, support, push vs pull, embouchure differences between clarinet/bass clarinet/saxes/flute, and switching between written and improvised music.

About Hideaki
In a perfect world, every minute of practice propels you forward. In my personal experience, I've had lulls in my progress where I just stay afloat for a few months. My job is to diagnose what's happening and optimize the way you are practicing at home.

Please hear my playing on my website before signing up for lessons.
