Private Ear Training Teacher

Usually supplemented with learning to read music and understand basic levels of music theory, ear training focuses most on connecting what you've been reading to what you're hearing. I use solfege (movable and fixed "do"), number systems, and I am amenable to other systems that you prefer. Let's improve your pitch and rhythm!

My daughter has taken lessons with Madeline through her school this past year and asked if she could continue with private lessons - we said an enthusiastic yes! The progress she has made in the last year is incredible and she has so much fun. Our son recently started lessons as well and we couldn't be more pleased. Madeline is a pleasure to work with and our children look forward to their weekly lessons. I highly recommend her.

Ear training is important when it comes to being a good overall musician and singer. I work with students to be able to identify chords, chord progressions, pitches, and more! This can also be a part of piano and singing lessons depending on the students level and goals.

On 10/7/2019 I had my first banjo lesson with Nick Russo. Nick created a calm, relaxed atmosphere in his studio, he was clear when he gave me instructions about technique, and he was incredibly patient when demonstrating the correct way to play a particular passage. His knowledge of music theory in general, and of the five-string banjo in particular, is very impressive. I would recommend him highly both to a banjo beginner and to anyone (like myself) who is in need of a refresher course. I should mention that I have also taken lessons from Nick on the lap steel guitar, an instrument that I do not know well. Nick’s expertise on this rather obscure instrument, his teaching ability, and – it is worth mentioning again – his patience, made these sessions very enjoyable and productive. He is, by any measure, an outstanding instructor. He is also very nice guy, who clearly enjoys working with his students.
Fadila
Our daughter has taken classes with Nick as part of her after school program with a larger group of kids. After the COVID-19 situation she continued having classes via zoom, and she very much wanted to do so. We observed great progress in both her musical skills and her desire to continue engaging with the instrument, ukulele in this case. The transition between in person and online class went smoothly, and Nick's follow up emails made sure we are on track with topics covered as well as the homework. Nick has a lot of patience and he's ways of engaging with Students are at age appropriate.
We continued ukulele classes online in a small group (2x1) and we are absolutely happy with our decision to continue taking ukulele lessons with Nick.

I have been taking guitar lessons with Nick Russo since February 2018. In my opinion, Nick Russo is a terrific musician and an outstanding teacher. He is an active gigging musician with an encyclopedic knowledge of music theory and music history and is well-versed in various types of music including,but not limited to classical, jazz, metal, folk, world music, etc., etc. Nick comes from a musical family and is very passionate about music, and this comes accross loud and clear in his lessons.He lives and breathes music.

I came to Nick after taking lessons for several years with another teacher. I liked this teacher very much, and the lessons only ended because the teacher moved to another geographic location. Although I did like this teacher, the lessons were starting to get stale and repetitious. When I started working with Nick that feeling was turned around. Lessons with Nick are very stimulating and interesting. Although Nick knows sight reading and theory well, he places a great emphasis on aural (ear) training. I have worked with him learning intervals, scales and songs, using my ears instead of my head. It’s a little hard to explain, but it’s a very organic kind of way to learn music. You learn the instrument more intuitively and I have had a number of’ “aha” moments when some pattern or connection or aspect of theory makes sense in a deep way. In the time that I’ve worked with Nick, my knowledge of the fretboard, and my ability to figure things out by ear has improved tremendously although I still have a long way to go.

Nick is also an incredibly kind and compassionate person, and he has shown a great deal of patience when working with me. If I don’t understand something he will try to break it down or present it in such a way that it finally makes sense to me. He has also worked a lot with me on my technique, and has tried to help me play more efficiently and ergonomically. Earlier in my guitar playing career, I developed

tendonitis in my left hand from playing. In addition, I have chronic lower back problems. Nick has made numerous helpful suggestions so that I don’t exacerbate these problems or injure myself again. One suggestion that was particularly helpful was to use a bass guitar strap for my electric guitar. Because the bass strap is much wider than a regular guitar strap, the weight is more evenly distributed across my back, resulting in less back strain.

I began my lessons with Nick face-to-face, but this changed to video due to the coronavirus pandemic. We utilize Skype and it seems to work pretty well, although there’s no substitute for meeting in person. Nick seems very adept at working in this modality. For example, he will have me position the camera so he can see how I am playing something. He will also provide close-ups of his own fingering to show me how he is playing something. In addition, Nick sends his students notes regarding the most salient points of each session. This is something he did even prior to the pandemic. Nick allows me to audio tape the sessions, and when I am able to go through the tape I gain an even deeper understanding of whatever was covered.

In short I feel that Nick is great person and a terrific teacher and that I was very lucky to have found him. I would recommend him to anyone with no reservation.
