I've played guitar since I was only eight years old (over 20 years!) in many different bands, styles, and genres. I played in a traditional Irish ensemble when I was in college and have since picked up bodhran and several other instruments used in that style. I love playing and teaching Irish music.

I am an internationally recognized saxophonist, composer, keyboardist, songwriter, lyricist, vocalist, bandleader, arranger, and producer with a passion for music education.

I have been teaching professionally for 10 years at levels from beginner to Graduate student/working professional (I am a substitute teacher for saxophone legend, prof. Antonio Hart, at Aaron Copland School of Music, Queens College, NY). All levels and ages are welcome.

I have a specific teaching curriculum with an emphasis on the control of the saxophone fingering and breathing/sound producing techniques, which ensure visible improvements within weeks of lessons! I am definitely also open to the students' own wishes regarding their repertoire and musical interests.

The unique quality I bring to my student's teaching experience is that I am also a working musician - I have been performing, recording, touring, producing, and band-leading internationally for 15 years now in a wide variety of musical ...

I've been taking online lessons with Wei for the past couple of months, and I quite enjoy them. As an adult piano player, I don’t have specific goals. I just play for fun most of the time. Wei, nevertheless, made specific teaching plans for me. He learns my strength and weaknesses, and chooses pieces that are both enjoyable to play and technically challenging for me, so that I’m able to tackle my weaknesses. His expertise helps me improve in many ways, like piano techniques and overall understanding of music. After a few lessons with him, I gained confidence in playing. I’m able to improve my performance of the pieces I love. Besides, Wei is an easy-going person. It’s fun to work with him. I strongly recommend his lessons if you are looking for a teacher with patience, expertise and passion for music.

I emphasize 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 enjoyable experience too! We will work together to ensure that you are learning pieces that interest you and inspire you to reach the next level. By the end of each lesson you will know what to work on for the week and exactly how to practice in order to achieve the most effective results.

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.

Lessons will be highly interactive and geared towards your personal goals as an aspiring cellist.

Laura is a wonderful cello teacher. Our daughter (10 y.o.) has been playing cello for 2 years. We just moved to NYC and needed a cello teacher. We found Laura and our daughter just had her first lesson with Laura. They reviewed skills, practiced pieces, ear training and Laura provided appropriate level workbooks at the end for home practice. Our daughter said "I can't wait to work with Laura again next week." Proof enough for us.

Laura is a great cello teacher! She is experienced, knowledgable, and has an amazing positive energy in our lessons. Her expectations are high yet realistic, and I very much enjoying learning the cello with her. I highly recommend Laura as a teacher!

"I’m extremely happy with my singing progress from Stephanie’s coaching. I always thought that I couldn’t be a singer but decided to take a change was very pleasantly surprised that, with Stephanie’s method of teaching that almost anyone, could learn to sing. I can’t recommend her enough. Stephanie is an outstanding vocal teacher with an impressive musical educational background as well as formidable singing abilities herself. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, she cares. It is important to her that you improve and she will put a lot of blood sweat and tears into your singing. You really can’t go wrong with her. Did I mention that she’s one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet? Yeah, there’s that too."

"Me and my 12-year-old son started saxophone two years ago together. Ian had a great guide to us who had never played the instrument. My growth is slow due to age issues, (of course satisfied) but my son's growth was great. My son now has a great deal of confidence as a jazz player, and he was able to work on other things positively too. We met Ian then became more into music and jazz. He is patient and will tell you until we can do. Ian is mainly jazz, but he is also very familiar with brass band and classical saxophone too. He is a working musician who do live performance, gig, and compose in various places. He loves music from the heart, his solo is so beatuiful. Ian's lessons has changed our life. We really grateful for giving us his time."
