Segio is patient and willing to accommodate my individual needs. His lessons are helpful in understanding the fundamentals, but still manages to make it fun by tying in songs that I like.

As I said in my profile, I play all styles and so I teach all styles. This is an important point as many teachers only teach classical and if you want to learn a song by Sam Smith, the Beatles or perhaps something from "Frozen", they'll say 'buy the sheet music'. I teach music theory (after the fundamentals of music are learned) and if the student desires, he or she can learn how to improvise. This does not mean jazz necessarily, but learning to elaborate on a dull sheet music arrangement.

I live in a private community in Clifton. N.J. David has performed for us on occasion at our clubhouse. I would consider him a master at the piano . He played a variety of music for us and it was received and enjoyed by all. He has a wonderful personality and patience as well which combined would make a wonderful teacher.
Roxanna H.
Our girls really enjoy their lessons with Mr. David. He is very patient and encouraging. They always come back very happy and excited to go for more lessons. You will not regret. He is really one of the best. My oldest one who has been with two other teachers before and can play well, says she is finally understanding some concepts that she had trouble with in the past. She is finally getting it with Mr. David. Our youngest one is progressing so fast....today was only their third lesson. So happy to have found him...and yes, we went by the reviews..all were so true about him. Thank you, Mr. David.

Real nice guy and talented. He takes the time to see what I know and what I want to learn. Great suggestions and I feel like I can grow as a musician with him

Even it was my first lesson I can feel the progress and I am confident about achieving my goal. Thanks Ian!!
Xiaoqi
Ian is fantastic teacher. He was so patient with my toddler daughter. And when she became fuzzy during the class, Ian could be so creative to always come out with a way to calm her down and redirect her attention to other musical things. I would love him to be my daughter’s music teacher for as long as possible if I did not have to move.

Ian is very knowledgeable and is great in explaining theory and great in demonstrating so you can understand.

My favorite aspect of music is creating my own compositions! I've spent over 25 years studying classical theory and composition as well as modern composition for TV, film and popular music. If you're new to composition, I can help you understand the fundamentals and approaches to writing your own music. If you have more experiencing writing your own music, I can help take you to the next level!

The voice is an instrument and, like any instrument, you need to understand how each part of your instrument works to create music. You also need to know the best way to take care of your instrument so that you don't permanently damage it.

I teach vocal techniques and exercises to help my students become a better singer. My students will learn how to use their diaphragm; how to use dynamics; how to project; how to build up their lung capacity; how to sing in a clear and articulate manner; how to sing various different types of music; how to control their voice; and how to develop their natural ear for music as well as showmanship.

About Tina

A recent transplant from Los Angeles, California; I have been singing professionally for more than forty years as well as having leading roles in local theatre productions. I have also been assistant director, musical director, choreographer, costumer and writer for many productions from West Side

"As a novice piano playing student, I was introduced to reading music as well as playing the piano by Buzz Amato, a great pianist and instructor. I would be remiss if I did not share how wonderful my piano lessons have been under the many talents Buzz offers as a piano instructor. His ability to convey concepts/theories of piano playing into understandable and applicable practice has made my learning experience enjoyable. Buzz is a good listener, very patient and observant, and acquires an innate gift to teach piano playing in ways that encourage me to continue my lessons. Buzz is a highly skilled piano instructor."

When Should You Replace Your Drum Heads?

A big part of drum set maintenance is knowing when to replace your drum heads. But when is the right time to do so? Of course, the right time will depend on how often you play - and also how hard you play. It can also depend on the sound you're going for, but a good rule of thumb is to switch out their drum heads when they start losing their original tone - they may sound dull, flat or worn. Other factors are if you notice dents (likely to happen if you're still using the stock heads), if you …
