About Glafkos
I'm a professional musician and teacher with over 20 years of experience.I feel that music is a beautiful thing in our world,magical at times and can be incredibly exciting,fun and rewarding.A universal language and a powerful tool, that can help us connect with ourselves and each other.
I always enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for music with students and help them discover what it can do for them.
I strongly feel that learning music at any level should be fun,and that the process of learning is most important and essentially the same as the end result.

In my lessons I strive towards a balance between discipline and creativity, and look for a holistic approach to learning.I explore sight-reading,ear-training, technique,memorization,as well as improvisation which I found to be a powerful learning tool and a fun way to experience music fr
om the beginning.I encourage classical music ,improvisation techniques as well as pieces that the student may have special connections to.I've learned that in general every one learns in his or her own unique way, and I see my job as a teacher to find the best approach for each of my students and guide him or her towards what they are naturally inclined to.

About Michael
Beginning his cello instruction at the age of 8, Michael spent the majority of his early years under the guidance of Nancy Hambleton-Torrente, current director of music for the Yorktown public school districts in Westchester county. During his undergraduate years, he attended Colgate University where he received a B.A. in both Music and Psychology. While at Colgate, Michael had the privilege of studying with cellist Florent Renard-Payen, founder and director of the esteemed Tarob Cello Ensemble. Upon graduation, Michael continued his studies at Montclair State University where he received an Artist Diploma in performance. Under the guidance of Nicholas Tzavaras of the Shanghai String Quartet, Michael performed two solo recitals for the John J. Cali School of Music before further pursuing his studies in the studio of Marc T. Johnson of the
Vermeer Quartet. From 2012 to 2014, Michael served as principal cellist of the Symphony Orchestra at Hunter College while concurrently earning a Masters degree in Music Education. He graduated with summa cum laude honors in 2014 and began his teaching career with the New York City Department of Education later that year.

At present, Michael is director of Orchestral activities at P.S. 205 Clarion in Brooklyn N.Y. and principal cellist of the Riverside Orchestra on the upper west side of Manhattan. He runs a full private teaching studio and actively gigs in and around the greater New York City area. He has also played in numerous master classes for world renowned cellists such as Lynn Harrell and Andres Diaz, and has had the privilege of working with esteemed conductors such as Marietta Cheng of the Southern Finger Lakes Orchestra, Paul Hostetter, Chair of Orchestral Activities for the Schwob School of Music, and Rueben Blundell, current Conductor and Music Director of the Lansdowne Symphony Orchestra, the Hunter Symphony and the Riverside Orchestra.

While Michael does enjoy a busy academic and teaching schedule, he believes that part of the joy of being a working musician is having the ability to share his love of music with others, something he feels both honored and privileged to be able to do.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching philosophy is one that tailors to the specific needs, interests and abilities of each individual. Throughout my years of private instruction, I have learned that no two individuals learn and/or think the same way. Thus, for some students I have found the Suzuki method to be highly effective, while for others I have been more comprehensive with my instruction, incorporated scales, etudes, sonatas, concerti and Bach suites for a more well rounded approach. Regardless of the methodology employed, all of my students will attest that I set clear and high expectations for every lesson, yet am very understanding, friendly and approachable right from the start. My goal is to provide every individual with the tools necessary for becoming a well-rounded musician, so that they too can share their love for music with others.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Two music stands and chairs.

*** Specialties ***
While I do specialize in classical instruction, I am able to instruct students in a variety of genres, including Jazz, Pop, and alternative rock. In addition, I tend to tailor my lessons to the needs of my students. If they are more comfortable learning by rote, then this is how I tend to instruct. My lessons are loosely structured by beginning with scales, moving on to etudes, then finishing with Bach suites, a sonata and/or a concerto.

I have been taking lessons with Michael for over a year now. I've taken lessons before with other instructors (though not in cello). Michael is one of the best instructors that I have ever had. He instructs and challenges you to get better, while at the same time being patient with your development. It has been a pleasure being a student of Michael.

About Carla
Music is my LIFE!

After more than 25 years of teaching at music camps, music stores, 3 colleges and my home, I completely understand that the lessons are all about YOU, the student: what you want to learn, taught to you in a way that works for your brain and personality.

And if you don't know exactly what you want to learn, that's OK. We can figure that out together as we go along learning the basics.

I help students learn to play songs by artists they like.

I also help students write songs, or put chords to their existing lyrics.

For those who are interested, I teach note-reading (not required) and theory (not required) and ear training (not required).

The lessons are always tailored towards your (the student's) goals.

I also teach classical and fingerstyle guitar for the occasional person who specifically wants
either of those styles.

My purpose as a teacher: help people have a fun experience, learning in an organized way, adapted to your learning style and goals, while learning to do exactly what you wanted to do when you decided you wanted to play the guitar.

In 1994, I was let go from my job at a music store because I was sick. Which sounds awful, but was the best thing to ever happen to me- it was then I got over my fears and became a full-time musician, teaching and writing and performing. I have never looked back! I may not be a household name, but I am living the dream.

Whether you want to sing to your kids or play for an audience of 50,000, or just play guitar for yourself, you first have to get started.

Wait no longer! The guitar is calling!

Carla is a fantastic teacher! She keeps the lesson lively and interesting, pushes you along but not too much.
In just the handful of lessons I have had so far my level has jumped further than expected.
Carla has been very helpful with the "tricky-bits" that have caused me issues. Helped to remedy them and move on.
Look no further for a great teacher, better yet I'll keep her to myself.

It was truly a pleasure meeting Concetta for my first ever violin lesson. It is difficult to learn anything at the age 40, specially a musical instrument, but she made it comfortable and easy to understand. She's extremely patient a key quality when teaching a subject such a music to anyone. I would say, give her teaching style a try and you won't regret it. Very knowledgeable indeed.

Elizabeth is a great teacher. I am very impressed with how she continues to move my child forward with learning to play without my daughter really even knowing it. She is very patient with her and also goes with the flow. If my daughter wants to spontaneously create a new song Elizabeth will go with it and even create a chart so they can play it properly. Very much looking forward to continuing more lessons with Elizabeth and watching my daughter grow with her.

I was really happy with my lesson with Ian. In the short time I was with him he managed to break down all the theory I had “known” before and turn it into something I really understood and could actually apply. I found myself listening to music in a completely new way the moment I left my lesson and was able to visualize the music itself more fully. Thank you Ian.

I studied classical piano for 19 years from a piano teacher who was from Julliard. I passed A.B.R.S.M. grade 8 piano test as well as the NYSSMA Grade 6 test. I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach students to read music, learn music theory, prepare for music exams and learn how to play using sheet music depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a pianist, I like to play classical, covers from movies, video games, and pop. I love to mentor students who want to become proficient in picking up any sheet music and start playing it.

My personal passion is music from movies and shows but I firmly believe that having great technique is essential to any kind of style of music. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

About Sam
I have been pursuing the violin for about 12 years, as well as viola and cello. I am currently enrolled full time a the Conservatory of Music at Brooklyn College in pursuit of my degree in Music Education. I have been working very hard at my goal of becoming classroom music teacher. I have been teaching private lessons for 6 years, privately and at different studios on Long Island before I moved to Brooklyn for school. I graduated from Suffolk County Community College with my Associates Degree in Music in 2017.

I have a wide range of experience with students of all ages and backgrounds. My mission is to find their passion. My favorite thing about teaching music is seeing how proud a student gets when they finally achieve something they thought they couldn't. Music should be a fun experience not a tedious task so I take the time to person
alize lessons for every student I get so that they can get the most out of their lessons.

I have done a lot of research about the benefits that music has on peoples brains and that is why I am so passionate about making music as accessible as possible. Music can improve test scores, improve your mood, and even your memory. It hones your motor skills as well and even the part of your brain that handles language.

I hope that I get the chance to work with you so we can dive into the amazing world of music together!

Sam was my private teacher on Long Island before she moved to Brooklyn. Before Sam I was just playing through school but my teacher said she saw potential and suggested I seek out a private teacher. Starting out with her I was not a confident player, I lacked motivation to practice, and, at one point, I thought about giving up music as a whole. Just weeks after my lessons started with Sam, my confidence boosted a hundred times over. Sam not only helped me fix things I needed help with, but also helped me to improve things I already had down in such a positive attitude. If I messed up in a passage, Sam immediately told me what I did right first. The positive feedback is what I appreciated most as her student. The encouragement, the positive attitude during lessons, and the push she gave for me to strive to be better.

Now, I am a senior in High School and looking into music schools to go for Music Education. I am first chair in orchestra at school, and I got into SCMEA and All State. Because of Sam I have a new love for music and the violin and one day hope to be as great of a music instructor as she is.

Sam is a great teacher. She has everything a music teacher should.. patience, a warm heart, and a love for her instrument.

10/10 would recommend.
