My name is Noel B., and I am a musician living and working in New York City.
When teaching a new student I employ many different methods. To me, music is about playing with people. Its important to be able to play by yourself but there are things you just can't learn unless you play with people. I liken it to taking soccer lessons but never playing on a team. Also, its important to perform. All of my students are invited to perform at a venue with a grand piano that professional musicians in the city play. This really helps the students and I set goals, and achieve them. I also use some method books, theory and other things, but just making it about playing makes the lessons much much more fun and inspiring for the students.
I currently teach at two music schools apart from my Private studio. O
I hope to inspire others to pursue a musical life. No matter how serious and long, or short and light.
One of my ultimate goals in teaching is to help my students develop the skills and knowledge to not only be able to play well, but to also be able to teach themselves (and hopefully others in the future). Thank you for your time! Have a great day!

Noel has an extremely diverse background in much that goes well beyond the guitar - He's an awesome drummer as well. This made the lessons even more interesting since he could offer perspective from the drummer's point of view, stressing how important rhythm is to becoming a solid guitarist.
On top of everything else, one of the things I like the most about taking lessons with Noel is that sitting down with him is like sitting in on a jam session - a pretty cool feeling for someone who's somewhat new to music, but has always wanted to learn.

My teacher is amazing. A master professional in his musical field. He teaches like he's done it for decades, even though so young. I would dare to say he can teach with his eyes close. I love all his teaching techniques, from theory to scale, to practicing the Hanon Studies, to ear training and on. I like how he plays along with me while teaching me a new musical score. He completely dedicated to teaching his student and making sure his pupil is satisfied with his performance. He'll even help you with preparing you for an recital or musical event. He knows how. I highly recommend for teaching any pupil from age 3 to 92. He'll ask me what I want to do next, and then we look for scores that I can learn according to my level.. He's attention to your needs as a student and works around it. I always look forward to going to my next lesson and see how I improved and what's new score he's prepare for me to learn.
I am a classically trained cellist in NYC. I have a master's degree in cello performance from a top NYC conservatory. In addition to performing music, I love to teach cello lessons to aspiring musicians of all ages! My musical aspirations stem from an undying love of music and my wish to share this with others. I am friendly, cheerful, energetic, and very patient, which creates an easy atmosphere for students to tackle the challenges of mastering the cello.
*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching pulls from the Suzuki method and the great cello pedagogue Irene Sharp. I emphasize ear-training and a physically relaxed and technically accurate approach to cello playing so that students are free to create music without limitations or physical discomfort.
Though playing an instrument takes hard work, it should be a fun and e
Students will learn the fundamentals of music theory and history while focusing on improving their technical facility on the cello. Students also work towards building their comfort with the instrument by practicing increasingly complex exercises and repertoire. Each lesson students practice ear-training and sight-reading so they are prepared for auditions and can learn music more quickly.
Lessons will be age appropriate, highly interactive, and geared towards your/ your child's personal goals as an aspiring cellist.
*** Equipment ***
For lessons at my home, students only need to bring their instrument and their current repertoire.
For lessons at the student's home, students need to provide their own instrument, a music stand, 2 chairs, and the repertoire we are working on. I will bring my own instrument to lessons.
I can assist you in renting a cello if you do not already have one.

My goal in teaching is to help students build confidence and find their voice in music. By developing strong technique, theory, and musicianship, students learn the skills needed to play with others, teach themselves new music, and pursue opportunities such as auditions and advanced music programs. Many of the teaching methods I employ are adapted from ones I learned while attending Berklee College of Music as well as my 15 years of private study.
I'm interested in how music and sounds affect people and I challenge my student
Thanks for your interest. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

I came to learn he teaches bass. Before we had a first lesson, Steve asked “what I wanted” from lessons. As a person without any formal music / music theory education, I wanted to understand where all the notes are on the neck, and wanted to develop the ability to improvise in any key. Steve organized our first lessons to help me gain these goals. Two main components were in Steve’s teaching; 1) Giving positive input to - and positive feedback on - the musical things I played, or tried to play, and 2) developing and assigning exercises so I could progress between lessons.
Steve is patient and easy going, and made each lesson very much worthwhile.
More recently Steve gave me a lesson on “walking bass” and explained the note-to-note movements in terms I could easily understand. He also provided the principles behind the formation and playing of walking bass, in language appropriate to my limited music theory knowledge. Steve impresses me as thoroughly knowledgeable in this topic.
I would recommend Steve as a bass instructor to anyone, of any level, or music knowledge base (including those with no musical knowledge). He is expert in developing lessons that address the student’s goals, and are at the “right knowledge level” for each student. Every lesson I had left me smiling, and later recalling the new learning as I put it into practice.
Inigo received his training at Berklee College of Music and Indiana University, where he received a degree in Saxophone Performance and a Master's in Jazz Studies. As an expert in his field, Inigo looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals. Inigo's teaching style is fun and straight to the point, custom tailored to students' needs, and, above all, effective.

I have participated in a number of different musical ensembles and performances including operas, recitals, choirs, a cappella groups, musicals, and liturgical music.
Through my own vocal journey, I have worked with numerous teachers, voice professionals and medical specialists concerning vocal faults and health issues. This has fostered my pedagogical understanding of the voice and my emphasis on vocal health.

In addition to voice lessons, I teach beginning piano and music theory lessons, establishing a firm musical foundation for those who wish to supplement their voice lessons or improve their performance on another instrument.

I am very versatile in my lessons and tailor material to students' needs and preferences. Whether we are reading a classical piece, learning a pop song by ear, or improvising, I encourage you to use your ears to develop your own style.
I believe composition is an important tool for student growth. I compose original exercises and pieces for my students that target specific areas of improvement. I also encourage students to compose themselves.
Whether you are playing the piano for the first time or already have a few years of experience, you can expect my lessons to yield weekly results and to gain skills that will maximize your potential.
No matter which piano method your instructor teaches, there are certain basics you need to know to avoid injuries and continue playing for years to come! Here, Chicago music teacher Sarah H. reviews the basics to remember... No one said that learning the piano would be easy, but youre up for the challenge. After all, if you ask how to get to Carnegie Hall, the answer will most likely be Practice! Practice! Practice! But what happens when all of that well-intentioned practicing s … Read More
