I have a degree in music with a teaching certificate. I have been teaching cello privately for 10 years. Depending on the age of the child we will start with either Essential Elements or Suzuki cello book one. They will start with proper positioning and plucking. Once they have 8 notes down, we start bowing. As we progress, we will be doing scales, and etudes.

Ms Chris was great my daughter really enjoyed her first lesson. Ms Chris was easy to work with and made my daughter comfortable that she felt free to ask questions and make mistakes without worry. My daughter is looking forward to the next lesson.

If you’re looking for a dedicated, knowledgeable and patient strings teacher, you will love Mrs. Heins. Both of my sons have been taking lessons from Mrs. Heins for several years (one for viola and one for cello). They have learned so much under her instruction, such as earning All-County and All-State honors. They also practice their live performance skills twice a year during informal musical concerts. Mrs. Heins also offers participation in the Royal Conservatory Music Development program, which can earn your child credit for college. She is a gem and should you choose her, you won’t be disappointed.

I will TEACH you how to LEARN the instrument, PLAY with CONFIDENCE, and PERFORM with PASSION.

Gave me beginner tips, and pro tricks. Taught me the basics in how to my technically proficient, but also gave me lessons on how to sound awesome to motivate. This wasn't a teacher who would just do drills all day. It was "here's the chords and methods to play your favorite songs". Motivated me to learn. Great teacher 10/10
Tristan
I found Kai's guitar lessons through a friend, but boy am I suprised! He was able to teach me the fundamentals as a newbie while keeping it engaging! Will absolutely reccomend to anyone beginner or advanced!
Matt
Best teacher ever!
I met Mr.Kai from a friend that had recommended him to me. I was nervous, at first, to be taking my very first guitar lessons. I met with Mr.Kai and immediately he made me feel at ease. He’s a very easy-going teacher and most importantly was very patient with me (I feel like i’m a slower learner). 10/10 would recommend to everyone!

My students receive individualized lessons based on their interest and ability. They learn to read music notation, play core piano literature, learn theory, music history, and composition.
All students participate in a yearly recital and have the option of entering the NJMTA Piano Festival to be adjudicated each year.
I have a two-fold goal with each student: that she or he become an excellent musician, and that we have fun together as that happens.

About Jennifer

I've been playing the piano since I was seven years old. After going to college and studying music education, I started teaching piano and have fallen in love with this job. I love music and I love sharing it with others. I've been teaching piano for over 30 years. My students receive individualize

Awesome lesson. Jennifer is very knowledgable about her craft and is very patient! So glad we found her!

I've finished my third lesson with Jennifer, and its a joy. She is very helpful, considerate, and full of knownledge. Tuesdays have become my favorite day of the week. Thank you :)
Amy
I'm an adult piano student who's never taken any piano lessons before. I committed myself to 5 lessons with Jennifer to see if we would be the right fit for each other. After about 10 lessons, I can tell you that she is an excellent piano instructor! She is very detail oriented and knows when to challenge you and when to provide more guidance. When you don't understand something, she's very good at explaining it at multiple angles. She jots down notes on problem areas, which helps when you practice. During the lesson, she ensures that you have good foundations, such as hand positioning and other motor skills. She prioritizes a portion of the lesson to important fundamentals, such as scales, chords, and music theory. All the while, she always keeps things interesting through a variety of songs. Overall, she's great at bringing out my strengths and addressing my weaknesses. I feel as if she's fully invested in me to be the best that I can be, so I'm confident that she would do the same for you or your child. Definitely would recommend!

This program is one that I use on a daily basis and has shaped the way I create music, as well as produce music for other artists.

I did my undergrad at Berklee, majoring in music technology - this program is certainly a music industry standard and a powerful tool for making records.

You can expect to learn the basics of Pro Tools, as well as the fundamentals of digital recording.

I can help you set up your home studio, troubleshoot and further develop the concepts that you already know about music technology.

"Ben G. has had 5 lessons with my sons an 11year old & a 9 year old. He observed their personalities while taking notice where their abilities were on the piano. Which allowed Ben to quickly understand how to plan his lessons to cater to each boy. My boys are enjoying lessons from Ben. They like watching him play their music in an entertaining way to show them how different a song can sound. Which keeps them interested in playing the piano. He is kind and attentive and makes learning fun. We appreciate the lessons Ben is creating for our sons."

"Dr. Gabrielius Alekna is a 5 Star piano teacher. He’s very inspiring. He’s an accomplished concert pianist, recording artist, and holds a Doctor of Music from the Julliard School of Music. Despite all of his accomplishments, he teaches with humility and kindness.

He establishes a high quality standard so you could achieve your best. Either by playing a passage or the whole music piece (to your heart’s delight), he demonstrates the complexity and beauty of the music you are working to learn.

He’s very professional. He genuinely regards every person without condescension and wants you to work toward being your best. I’ve taken lessons with him since 2009 and I’ve played pieces that I will never have been able to play without his patience with me. He is generous with his time, helping me to select a new piano on his day off and always finishing a lesson at its natural conclusion (not because the clock says so.)

Above all he’s a real person that you and I could relate with. And, because of that, I not only regard him as my instructor and mentor, but truly a friend."

I am mainly interested in musical theater, and Sandra has helped me find suitable songs for my voice. She works on breathing and building a solid technique which one can rely on. She has also helped me to develop as an actor, so that I feel completely comfortable with performing. I would highly recommend her."
