About Paolo
My name is Paolo Perez. I'm a New York based pianist who's just as at home in a formal theater pit as I am playing air guitar on stage in a one piece jumpsuit and an Aladdin Sane bolt painted on my face. At little about me, I've worked and performed primarily in musical theater for the last ten years in my capacity as Music Director at various houses throughout the Northeast. Most recently I had the distinct pleasure of closing a production of Grease at the United Nations International School, a year of monthly shows with HQ's Anna Roisman at Caroline’s Comedy Club, and a bittersweet departure from my nearly 3 years as Music Director for the classic rock tribute group - The Rock and Roll Playhouse

In a session with me, you'll explore more than how to simply sing or play the notes that are on the page. We'll go over how to become a
compelling story teller, why it's important to find variety within your piece, and how to do that. Whether you're an aspiring professional looking for fine fine tuning, or a beginner who has always wanted to perform that one certain song, feel free to reach out and let me know how I can help you become a better musician. Hope to speak with you soon!

About Mike
I teach all styles of music and all levels of ability

As I look back at my life, I see that music was my constant companion. My passion for music, and more specifically for the guitar, goes back to the time when, as a ten year old I received a guitar for my birthday. The sound of the instrument truly struck a chord in my heart and I learned to respect and love the instrument to the point that I thought of it almost as a companion, as something alive or, more exactly, as something my fingers could make come alive. At first I wanted to play rock and popular music, but eventually I switched to classical. When I entered the realm of classical music, a whole new world opened up for me -- new feelings, new emotions, and new challenges.
My enthusiasm for music continued, and beginning in 1990 I attended the Hartt School of Music, part of
the University of Hartford. I knew, of course, that the education of a musician is truly never finished, and between 1995 and 1997, I took Master Jazz Classes in New York City, under the direction of Dennis Cinelli, the international guitar player and soloist.
While in Florida, I attended classes at Florida International University. Between 2000 and 2003 I played in an orchestra on board the ships of the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line.
All along the way I have been teaching the guitar at just about every level, an activity that I always enjoyed but admittedly is somewhat limiting. Teaching brings us back to the basics, but for a musician performing is what makes us grow professionally and satisfy us emotionally.

I'm a Berklee College of Music graduate with a degree in Film Scoring, I have over 15 years of piano experience. I currently work in the gaming industry by creating music and sound design. Being a full time audio nerd, I will help you not only learn how to read and play music, I can teach you the basics of how to write your own music, may it be simple piano pieces to orchestral scores!

Playing piano is one of the most exhilarating instruments to play; you'll be able to understand music theory better, have a great ear, make it easier to learn other instruments, and learn how to play any song to your liking. The possibilities are just endless.

I have been looking to pick up piano again after a long break. I found Lorenzo and he has helped me brush up
on my technique and has made playing fun again. Lorenzo is patient but keeps challenging my abilities and has made me greatly improve my skills. I would highly recommend Lorenzo as a piano teacher to anyone!

Lorenzo is an incredible teacher. My 7 year old has been taking lessons with him for a little over a year. Although she is very shy, she quickly warmed up to him. He is a natural, especially with children. He is very professional, patient and motivating. She always looks forward to her next lesson with "Mr. Lorenzo".

About Brandon
Hi!

My name is Brandon, and I'd love to give you guitar lessons! Over the past year, I have acquired a passion for teaching that spawned when I was just showing some family members a few pointers here and there. I realized that over the course of my musical life, I have kept all of the knowledge I gained from all of my musical experiences mostly to myself. I realized how fulfilling it would be to pass on that knowledge!

I studied jazz at the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (NOCCA). I also studied for one year at the University of New Orleans (UNO), where I studied with the jazz guitar educator legends Hank Mackie and Steve Masakowski. I now currently study classical guitar as well as composition at Loyola University New Orleans.

Looking forward to working with you!

About Alexandra
At a young age, pianist Alexandra Sjobeck’s distinctly captivating style led her to move from Idaho to New York to immerse herself in New York City’s jazz scene. Her unique sound is comprised of a voice all her own which relies on nuanced intricacies in both her arrangements and improvisation paired with familiarity, whether from pop music, world music, or from jazz greats including McCoy Tyner, Bill Evans, and Herbie Hancock. One of her regular sidemen summarized it as “the combination of Post-Impressionistic painting, a jigsaw puzzle, childhood, and groove.” During her time in New York, she studied with some of the top jazz artists in the world and obtained a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from the Manhattan School of Music.   More recently, she completed her Master’s degree in Jazz Studies at the University of Northern Colorado as
a teaching assistant. Throughout the last two years she has been actively performing with the nationally touring trio SBST as well as the Sjobeck Baker Duo and has played at venues such as The Velvet Note in Atlanta, Georgia and Dazzle in Denver, Colorado. Beyond her performance career, she has had her hand at a variety of other projects including: recording three albums as leader and co-leader, composing the music for a short film, conducting and debuting an original big band arrangement at a University of Northern Colorado concert, teaching jazz ensemble classes, and presenting workshops and masterclasses in Colorado, Georgia, and Idaho.

Alex is very patient and able to adapt to her students. I studied with her for a year and also got to see other students work with her and she always had a way of getting each student to accomplish their goals. I think when you look for a teacher, you really are looking for someone to teach you how to learn. So many teachers tell you something or tell you what to do but never help you develop a skillset. Alex is different in that she absolutely focuses on developing a fundamental process so that each student not only learns but knows how to learn. As a result, there is progress I can see immediately, of course, but also years down the road. If you're looking for a teacher seriously, consider someone who will make a lasting impact and will make you a better overall person— not just tell you to do something and move on. Alex is a teacher who, regardless if you pursue music, you will come out better because of her teachings. Highly recommend!

About Blake
Hello there!

I'm 25 and a graduate of the Eastman School of Music with a degree in Jazz Guitar performance. I currently work full-time as a freelance musician, I play in wedding/corporate bands, jazz groups, hip-hop bands, funk bands, pop bands, original music projects, and I also run a hip-hop/jazz group. I'm a funny, easy-going guy and I want lessons to be fun and inspiring. With that being said I definitely like to set and accomplish realistic goals with my students, cause why not be the best you can be, right?

My teaching style follows the "Music is Easy" mantra. Basically, I look at it as my job to take the intimidation factor out of music, and let it be what it should be, FUN! It's not to say we won't be learning theory, or getting our skills together, but it is to say that we'll be taking all the fancy lingo and breaking it dow
n for you in concrete practical ways.

In terms of what I teach that really runs the gambit, I teach most styles of contemporary guitar playing, and additionally can teach voice as well. I also have taken extensive marketing classes at the University of Rochester, which means that I can offer some key advise on music business and marketing strategies for your band. I also run my own booking agency, so if you want to talk shop on how to get gigs, which avenues of gigs make the most bread, and other things of that nature, I'm your guy as well!

Hope to hear from you and start some fun learning together!

About Stephanie
As a passionate musician, I strive to find the gifts in all of my students by instilling a good relationship that fosters musical growth. Teaching piano and voice has been the most rewarding and integral part of my professional career.
A graduate of Northwest Missouri State University, I was actively involved as a music major as I gained my bachelor of science in music education. I performed as a member of the Celebration show choir as well as the University Chorale. My piano training began at the age of six and continues today. I now enjoy singing with my church choir, and singing as a soloist at my church.
One thing that has been important to me as I raised my children is that they were exposed to music and developed a true love of it. As young adults, we now enjoy as a family singing and playing instruments together to share our gi
ft of music with others.
