About Luca
There are lots of reasons people take singing lessons...a dream of performing for crowds, wanting to melt faces at karaoke, not being embarrassed when singing in the shower... But the common goal is finding your voice and creating a sound you love. My studio is designed to create a space where that process is comfortable and fun! Lessons will start wherever you’re at and go at your own pace towards your specific goals.

I was trained at the School of Creative Arts in Sydney, Australia and specialize in pop, rock and R&B vocal technique. I work with a lot of beginners as well as people in bands and songwriters.

I'm from an extremely musical family and have always loved singing. (I almost pushed my parents over the edge as a kid because I would hum CONSTANTLY...) I lived in Haiti, the Dominican Republic and the US of A growing up and
then moved to Sydney, Australia after high school to study music. I ran a vocal studio in San Diego for a few years and now live in NYC.

I teach online and in my downtown NYC studio.

If you don't see a time available in my schedule that works for you please feel free to contact me. Things are always moving and changing!

(PS: If you read reviews and notice every one was calling me Rachel, don't be confused! That is my middle name, I now go by my first name, Luca.)

I was really impressed with Luca! She listened to and encouraged my daughter and got her onto ‘homework ‘ exercises on her very first lesson. She really balanced getting to know my daughter with getting right into teaching. I recommend Luca absolutely!

Luca was outstanding. Her educational framework was thoughtful and nuanced, she approaches the subject matter in a welcoming and demystifying way, and she has an a knack for making the learning process feel engaging and empowering.

Based on her bio and reviews I had high expectations, and she wildly exceeded them in our first session.

About Rebecca
I have 50 years of teaching experience, from beginners to advanced students. I also teach the people no one else thinks are teachable because I work with people from where they are and find their best learning styles. Several of my students are now professional musicians, but that's not everyone's course. I teach every age range from 3-83 and everything from classical to country-western. And I teach every orchestral and band instrument, and guitar, bass, and drum kit and some instruments you've never heard of. I also teach voice, pop, rock, opera, doesn't matter to me.

*** Lesson Details ***
Important Note: I will no longer take new students that want lessons every other week, beginning Nov 1. Inconsistent lessons, especially with younger students, allows them to forget too much between sessions.

What I teach is transferable
to EVERY endeavor whether it's music or math or soccer. I require practice on the student's part. You will be able to play recognizable songs within your first month. You tell me what you or your child wants out of music lessons, and I will tell you exactly how to get it.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lesson will happen in a space next to the family room which is upstairs. Teacher has a collection of instruments, music stands, couches for seating. Park on the street or driveway.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Instrument

*** Specialties ***
I'm flexible. I have taught everything from country western guitar to classical guitar, from Jazz trumpet to orchestral audition music, from barbershop singing to Broadway musical singing. I have even taught ballet. I cater my methods to the student's best learning style.

About Jose
Hello there, my name is Jose Valdez and I am a guitar player finishing my Masters in Jazz Performance from the University of North Texas. I am a versatile musician that can play several styles like pop, rock, reggae, funk, latin music, jazz, folk etc. I am Peruvian and have lived in brasil for 2 years so I know a lot of brazilian and south american rhythms. I am very passionate about music and teaching and really enjoy giving lessons to people that are fond in learning. I have lots of resources for teaching like books, pdfs, backing tracks etc. I have a lot of experience playing live and a lot of experience as a teacher. I like to combine those two when teaching, bringing the most of the real world playing with all of the pedagogical resources and knowledge I have to the table.

My teaching philosophy is simple; teach the student music
he/she loves and feels passionate about as a priority and compliment his learning experience with different resources while studying different aspects of music theory, harmony, melody as well as listening a lot to the music to understand all of the nuances and small details.

I have been taking lessons from Michael for about 9 months, and it has been one of the best experiences I have ever had. He is an excellent guitar player, and instructor. He is patient, thorough, and very willing to pace his instruction with the ability of the student. I am in my late 50's and he is just the person I had hoped for in a teacher. I consider going to lesson not a chore, but a pleasure.

About Ed
I have played the guitar my entire life and never lost my love for it (even when I tried!). I have a bachelor's degree in guitar from Wichita State University where I studied with jazz guitar legend Jerry Hahn (Rolling Stone magazine called him one of the top 3 jazz guitarists in the world). From there I traveled to Hollywood, CA where I attended G.I.T. at the Musicians Institute. I spent several years travelling the Pacific Northwest with different rock bands before settling down to a career in financial services and becoming a husband and father.

The most thoughtful and helpful teacher I could find for both of our children! One has several years experience, and the other was a beginner. Daniela was able to read their personalities perfectly from the first lesson, and adapt her teaching style to match. She is very passionate about teaching, and our kids love taking piano lessons because of her!

About Tonya
Hi, there! My name is Antonina and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons for over 10 years and although I help foster technically advanced students, I mostly pride myself on the fact that I help students fall into a lifelong love with music! Although with time students tend to lose their interest due to the self-discipline required to succeed at playing an instrument, I make sure to offer a fresh, inspirational, and engaging approach to my lessons. I introduce many different styles, performance skills, composition, and most importantly the ability for self-expression through music. I have been playing, teaching, and performing my entire life and have a huge passion to share the gift of music!

I've had several piano teachers over the years, but never came across anyone quite like Tonya. It's rare to find music teachers of her caliber in South Florida. Besides being a great teacher she is also an incredibly talented musician (song writer and singer) in her own right. Highly recommended!

About Alan
Hi there!

I began taking lessons on the piano around the age of 5, and through time and work I developed a passion for this instrument. I continued throughout junior high, under the instruction of Will Bailey of Scottsbluff, Ne. and high school, under the instruction of Mical Thurow. Often times we would have recitals, so I learned a lot about playing and performing under these instructors, all of which I continue to teach my students. I continued playing throughout college, where I majored in piano performance and music technology. Throughout my performance degree, I was required to give a 40 minute long recital, which I completed with the works of Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, Debussy and Chopin. I recently graduated in May of 2017, and have been continuing to teach lessons to students and pass on the gift of music.

Hi! I'm Deanna and I have played piano for 48 years. (Although, not really that old, haha!) I play the piano at our church. Twenty years ago, I taught piano for about 3 years and quit to raise my 2 beautiful daughters. Now that they are older, I have started teaching again. I love to teach! I love to see you learn, grow and start to play things on the piano that you are having fun with. Piano is something that you can do for the rest of your life. My students love it! One of my adult students who has been taking for 6 months recently sent me a text and said she played Happy Birthday while everyone sang for her mother's 70th birthday. That's what I love!

About Sabra
Hi there! My name is Sabra Charles and I am excited to work with you. I have been playing piano for 11 years and have been teaching for 3. I have 4 younger siblings who all play instruments so I have seen first hand how important it is to start music education at a young age.

With students I like to stress the importance of sight reading and pitch. I teach using John Brimhal, and Dog and Bird methods. Many of my lessons focus on chords, chord structures, and chord progressions.

I encourage students to start with classical music and then branch out into other genres. I myself enjoy jazz as well as classical and pop. Students will also learn about piano composition as that is a great way to express themselves.

In addition to piano I play guitar, ukulele, and drums. When I am not playing music or teaching I enjoy swimming and bowling. I
also help with the music program at Seton high school. I work full time at in Tri-Health radiology.

I look forward to working with you! Have a blessed day.
