Samuel
My son is quite shy and anxious about performing below what he develops as an expectation for himself - in everything, from sports to school work to music. Nicole's combination of professional excellence, efficiency and warmth made him immediately feel comfortable and open to constructive feedback . Nicole's teaching style is excellent. He is improving noticeably with every lesson.
Daisy H.
Daisy very much enjoyed her first lesson with Nicole and said she was very encouraging and gave her great pointers about how to improve. We are so pleased and look forward to more lessons to come!

Michael is an engaged, easy to talk to, knowledgable, and thorough teacher. It seems like teaching comes naturally to him - he explains the full scope as well as the details of what you're learning so that you know why you're learning it. I'm looking forward to our future lessons!
Rory L.
Perfect first session. Michael adapted to Rory's deep understanding of music theory but total lack of knowledge of the bass. He was thoughtful, patient, and adaptive introducing the bass and providing practice suggestions to Rory. I recommend Michael in the highest terms as an instructor for beginners and knowing his vast education and experience in the bass I must assume this travels though the entire range of students - beginner to advanced. We look forward to the next lesson.
Gary S.
My first lesson with Michael was great! His teaching approach was relaxed and directive. I'm am looking forward future lessons with him.

Developing our ears is a crucial part of nurturing our musicianship. Having the ability to hear specific aspects of music allows us to strengthen our understand and appreciation of music.

Like my trombone lessons, ear training lessons will start by solidifying (or reviewing) fundamentals. Once established, we will build upon those fundamental skills to further develop our musical ear.

My son finally loves playing his trombone.
Donna
Paul is a very gifted musician and a great teacher. He is passionate about music, and very patient with students. My son loves his trambone lessons. I highly recommend Paul.
Bruce
I could tell Paul definitely knew all the tiny details about mastering the trombone since the first lesson. He recognized what I needed to improve upon in order to reach my goals in a timely manner, armed me with the tools to do so, and I have no doubt that I will achieve those goals as the lessons progress.

Young artists who aspire to elevate their musical education in the future should expect to have a solid grasp of music theory. A foundation of music theory not only benefits those seeking formal musical education, but also contributes to greater familiarity and learning potential in sight-reading, performance, musical interpretation and a scholarly understanding of musical score.

Students who select these lessons can expect enrichment in theory fundamentals like identifying and labeling chord structures, roman numerals in chordal analysis, harmonic analysis, and score analysis. I structure these lessons as taught by the Music Theory Department at Juilliard, and have extended experience tutoring students in this subject within the School.

About Max

Most recently, I was sponsored by Mr. Josef Frohlich of the Fresh Leaf Charitable Foundation as one of eight pianists worldwide to attend the prestigious Verbier Festival Academy in Switzerland, summer of 2018. I was the sole American and Juilliard pianist to receive the honor, and was featured in

Deborah K.
As a parent, I worried that my child wouldn’t receive a truly effective musical education that was tailored to suit his needs and goals. After studying with Max for two years, my twelve year old son has just started his first semester at the Mannes’ School of Music Pre-College Program this Fall. I cannot thank Max enough for his efforts. Before starting lessons with Max, my son had zero interest in piano despite his potential. Max made piano fun, interesting, and worthy of my son’s time. He became an entirely different person! He has studied with the world’s foremost concert pianists and teachers, and he always used his illustrious network to help my son with career opportunities. Though my son now studies in a formal setting, I’m grateful to Max for his help in securing my son’s future. If you are a parent who is unsure of who to entrust your child’s musical development to, please sign up for Max’s lessons. He is the real deal!
Alex
Max has been very helpful so far in teaching me the fundamentals of what makes a proficient piano player, from the technical aspects to the mentality one should have. Would Recommend.
Leopold
Max is a young man with a mature spirit far beyond his years. My wife and I heard him in concert where he gave a beautiful recital of Liszt and Beethoven Sonatas in our hometown of Berlin. I recently visited New York for a business trip, and took the opportunity to speak to this young man who captured my ears with his nearly philosophical performance. After a brief two hour lesson, it was clear to me that the artist had clear vision of a realm that most would disregard as imaginary. I look forward to hearing him again in Europe, and encourage those in New York to take advantage of his services. He will be a major influence on the future of classical music.

I'm actually a violin teacher, and I also have other link for my violin studio teaching. I also have student who took lesson mainly to get theory boosted up, while also taking lesson. I'd love to have my student not only good on playing, but they also really understand musicality, and speaking about musicality, we all need to understand the structure of music. that being said, we need theory. I teach theory as an integration with my studio lesson. But i'm also down to teach pure music theory alone. I'm flexible with these. Just send me message - then we'll set up things onwards :) Cheers!

Professor Campos is an excellent musician and educator who has always been willing to share his knowledge of musicianship, composition, ear training, jazz harmony, and piano.
I hope that you give Professor Campos an opportunity to share his knowledge with you. He really cares about his students."

Guitar Chord Charts: 11 Easy Tips to Read Fingering Charts on Acoustic Guitars

While it's true that you don't need to read music to play the guitar, you should learn how to read guitar chord charts. A guitar chord chart is a visual representation of a chord. This helpful visual is a little like music-by-numbers; it tells you which finger goes where and on what string, so in case you come across a chord you don't know, you'll be able to play it. Here's an example of a guitar chord chart, also known as a guitar chord diagram: Guitar chord charts are a cinch …
