Linda C.

I am a Bronx native professional opera-singer that has been studying singing for 10 years and playing piano since the age of 7. I have been teaching both voice and beginner to intermediate piano to all ages for five years throughout the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens. My voice and piano lessons focus on developing a healthy technique, learning how to sight read, breathing exercises, acting, and having fun. I teach all genres and can help with audition preparation.

About Linda

Audiences throughout the U.S. have heard Ecuadorian and Puerto-Rican Mezzo-Soprano Linda C. at venues including Carnegie Hall, the U.N., Lincoln Center, the United Palace Theater, and Repertorio Español, as well as in theaters throughout Europe. Described as having a voice that is “elastic and luxu

Linda is perfection! my 6 year old daughter adores her and has learned so much.
Jim Wu
I am a retired professor. It is always my dream to be able to sing some day, but I was intimidated by the technical requirements involved in singing until I met Linda. She is a wonderful singing coach, knowledgeable, honest, patient, and inspiring at the same time. Not only she has amazing voice, but also has very good ear and can immediately tell whenever one is off tune or not. Linda combines rigorous demand for perfection with warm encouragement and repeated demonstration of how to improve. I am blessed that I had her as my coach. After having just taken a course on bel canto offered by her recently, I feel that I really have learnt enormously about breathing, resonance, vibration, Italian pronunciation, and several beautiful songs, among others. I most strongly recommend Linda without any reservation to any one who is thinking to learn how to sing.
Amanda
I have learned so much from Ms. Linda about vibrato and breath support, along with singing with healthy technique. She has also helped me achieve a mixed sound. She is a one of a kind teacher and worth every penny!

Awesome. Was nervous about being really rusty from a long layoff, but Justin was easy-going and unassuming. Thank you!

Justin is a great guitar teacher to my 10 year old son. He has shown patience with a child that has a hard time focusing. He has taught him to both read and write music. My son gets excited for lessons now. We are very pleased with him and can highly recommend him to others with children.

My lessons are tailored to the appropriate goals, interests, and level of the student. If you are a complete beginner, or are resuming lessons after a long hiatus, I strive to make the lesson fun and stress-free, while providing you the fundamentals that allow you to quickly play the music you are passionate about. If you are seeking to develop your improvising or songwriting skills, I help you study artists and influences you feel a kinship with, and work to integrate the qualities that draw you to these artists into your own unique musical personality. This is the process of finding a voice as an improviser or songwriter, and one of my favorite approaches to teaching.

I am a songwriter, composer, producer, keyboardist, saxophonist and educator based in New York. I earned BM and MM degrees from New England Conservatory, both with distinction. My lessons are tailored to the appropriate goals, interests, and level of the student. If you are a complete beginner, o

Gary has taught my son for about 7 years. He is a wonderful teacher, as skilled with small children as he is with more advanced musicians. Professionally trained and credentialed, there are few aspects of music he is not ready to teach. Piano, saxophone, production, theory--he can do it all.

He taught my son piano when he was small and then when the kid switched to upright bass, he comped him for years and taught him the tricks of the jazz trade (the kid is ready for an arts high school because of Gary's teaching)

Gary is incredibly punctual and responsible about times and dates. In person, he is warm and supportive but very focussed on the student's development. Gary loves what he does and loves watching his students develop. i would recommend him for all levels, and as an added bonus he is a very cerebral and thoughtful individual. Let this musician teach you or your child and you won't be disappointed!
Katherine
Gary taught both our kids for several years. He was enthusiastic, entertaining, and cared very much about teaching. We really enjoyed him and recommended him to many friends who ended up also working with him for many years.
Sara
It was a great experience having Gary Joynes teach piano to our middle school son for several years. With his upbeat and collaborative approach, Gary really connected with our son and worked efficiently and constructively to help him improve. Gary has a wealth of advanced music and performance knowledge - but he also has the ability to make the basics fun. We miss you, Gary!

I am an undergraduate student at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor studying piano performance and philosophy, with a strong interest in piano pedagogy of all levels. In pursuing these two degrees, I believe in a well-rounded musical education that includes story-telling, connecting music to relevant history and literature, and developing an emotive connection to music beyond just the technical in ways that are fun and engaging, especially in the beginning stages of learning.

That being said, I also emphasize the importance of having a solid foundation that allows for the capability to progress further. With teaching technique to beginners, I focus on fun exercises and activities that are easy for both the students and parents to understand and practice at home. Additionally, I believe that music theory is an essential building block to understanding how to read music effectively, so I begin every lesson with a short music theory lesson on basic harmony exercises that teach ...

Ellen is very thorough in her teaching method, while being super encouraging and patient! She incorporates elements of music theory, technique, and musicality naturally throughout the lesson. On top of that, I also like her ability to customize her teaching approach to help me accomplish my goals!
Bridget
Ellen is great at teaching both my daughter and myself. Very friendly, personable and understands the piano and classical repertoire at a high level. She’s really helped me with my fundamentals and music theory. My daughter (who is much better than I) mainly studies classical music with her and I love to hear her progress. Ellen is warm and accommodating and I’d recommend her to anyone!

"Excellent teacher, very professional, talented and motivating! A+

Arnell is teaching my son piano lessons in her home. She is very qualified in technique and knows how to work well with a 10 year old. She is very patient, professional and always motivating my son to do better with each lesson. I drive 15 minutes to her home and it is very convenient, quiet and I bring reading materials while my son enjoys his lesson. My sons uses her piano during the lesson and we have a keyboard that he uses to practice on at home. Hopefully, with time and practice he will become as talented as Arnell and we will try to buy him his own piano if he so chooses. One one occasion, it was necessary for me to reschedule a lesson, which Arnell did with no problems whatsoever. I would highly recommend this teacher. She always has a positive, encouraging demeanor and it is a pleasure to have her teach my son the piano."
