I work with Ableton live 9 as a producer, DJ and a drummer. It is an amazing tool for both live shows and composition.

About Noel
Hello everyone and welcome!

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
ne of which is in Long Island. At this school I teach electronic music production w/ Ableton as a digital audio workstation. I also teach DJ/Turntablism along side DJ 4our 5ive (he has worked with Notorious BIG, Jay z, and is the current tour DJ for Lil Wayne). We have also started working together on performing at the venue near the school.

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!

Great lesson. Worked out a plan to accomplish my goals. Noel is amazing and multi-instrumentalist which helped to combine skills and a jam session into the lesson.

Simply put, Noel is a terrific teacher! I had the itch to pick up the guitar at 39 years old, and wanted to work with someone who had a laid back approach while still having the chops and the knowledge to offer some challenges. I was not disappointed!

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.

Great Teacher

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.

Once's experience with the program will determine what to expect Regardless, students will learn new techniques and music theory.

About Philip
Guitarist Philip L. was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, where he began his musical studies at a young age. He was accepted to Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, named by the Grammy Foundation as the top performing arts high school in the nation, and after graduating, received a scholarship to attend Stetson University. Under the direction of Dr. Stephen Robinson, the head of the guitar department at Stetson University, he was able to refine his skills and learn a great deal about the interpretation of music on the guitar.
After receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Music, Philip became an instructor at University High School in Orange City, Florida. There he directed the guitar program, which he built, and, outside of teaching, Philip performed professionally (guitar and voice) around Central Florida in various groups and styles
of music, including Rock, Pop, and Jazz. Since then, he was awarded a full scholarship to the University of Akron as a Teaching Assistant and later received his Master’s under the tutelage of Stephen Aron. Philip is currently working towards his Doctorate at FSU. Philip has played a number of feature concerts and masterclasses with great guitarists of our time, such as David Russell, Andrew York, Dusan Bogdanovic, Roland Dyens, Michael Chapdelaine, and many other artists.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*** Lesson Details ***
The first step will be evaluating the student's musical and technical skill level, then I build a curriculum from that point. As an example, a beginning student would learn how to read music, play basic rhythms, use proper left and right hand technique, and the notes in the first position on individual strings. After I have evaluated the current level of the student and their musical interest, I will begin to move my curriculum around their various needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I will have a music stand for you to use at your lesson. I require the student to have their own instrument so that they may practice outside of their lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***
Classical - Pop - Jazz - Songwriting - Digital Arts - Recording - Music Production - Theory - General Music

Besides being a very skilled guitarist, Phillip is very professional and reliable. He has a very laid back personality which really worked well for my shy 7-year-old daughter. He was patient and encouraging.

Well versed in studio technology, I am prepared to give students the knowledge and techniques they require to get started writing and mixing the music they desire to in Ableton. With a solid understanding of fundamental techniques, the student can approach any style of electronic music they wish to with success!

About Matthew
Matt’s musical background draws from a broad variety of genres, specializing in jazz, rock, and electronic music. While earning a bachelors degree in Music Technology from Georgia State University, Matt studied jazz guitar under Dave Frackenpohl as well audio technology and composition under Dr. Robert Thompson.
While teaching my first lesson years ago, I realized the enjoyment I receive from spreading the musical knowledge I have accrued over the years. Whether my students are interested in guitar, composition, or studio procedures, I seek to give them the musical language, technical knowledge, and resources they need to realize their musical endeavors. My main goal in music education is to enable students to play and create the music that they enjoy and excites them. Whether you want to learn your favorite song on guitar, new electroni
c sound design techniques, or standard procedures and techniques for recording and mixing audio, I want to help you achieve your musical goals!

I can provide coaching through basic recording, use of both session view and arrangement view, live audio and midi instrument recording, audio effects processing, mastering vocal performances, and basically creating and recording tracks for demos and for professional audio quality music production.

About Jake
There are many ways to express the heart, and music is one way I love to do that. I would love to help sharpen your skills in expressing art, music, emotion, and creativity in any way I can! I believe the gift of music is given to each person to enjoy, experience, and express what words alone cannot.

I have been playing music for 7 years, and have had the opportunity to play guitar and sing in many settings. Much of this experience has been in a Christian worship music setting, and also with open mic nights, scoring for video, as well as writing and playing in a band. The instrument I am most comfortable teaching is guitar, and I have also sung in most settings I have played guitar in. I have also learned a lot about how to use programs like Garageband and Ableton to produce ad record music as it is crucial to capture inspiration befor
e it flies away sometimes. I also have some experience in playing ukulele, drums, piano, bass, and backup vocals.

I have a complete in studio set up with all of the premiere tools you will need to achieve your goals. My goal is to help you

I look forward to working with you and helping you to achieve your goals!

I've had to record my own band's albums for years, and have recorded a lot of local bands as well. Mixing and producing has become a huge passion of mine since the first time I learned what a compressor could do. Letting the music shine through while maintaining clarity and punch is an art that I love teaching.

About ryan
Hi, my name is Ryan and I would love to teach you how to play guitar. I've been playing for over 10 years and have been gigging for a little less than that in my band. Over the years I have gained a lot of experience performing on stage and teaching to people of all ages. If you want to shred, jam, or rock out then look no further. I okay all styles of music and pride myself in building a fun and educational curriculum based solely on you or others who have had similar interests as you. This means if you have a question about guitar or music in general, 9 times out of 10 I can answer it. The remaining tenth is either a well kept secret, or something that is left to be found. So if you're ready to start your journey or just need a guide to help you on your way, let's​ go!

Ryan was great! He's obviously a talented guitarist and he is very laid back and makes you feel comfortable. He shows you in detail what you need to do to become a better guitar player. My ONLY advice, and the reason he doesn't get 5 stars, is I think he should have more visual aids with his lessons. For example, write down the different scales or transcribe the first several measures of a song. Then, one has something to refer back to when you are practicing and invariably get stuck. Other than that, I would highly recommend Ryan as a guitar teacher!

Ableton Live is an incredibly powerful tool that allows you to produce professional level tracks/songs in your bedroom. It provides you with nearly endless possibilities for sound design and interaction between sounds. In our lessons, you will learn how the different instruments and plugins in Ableton work, how to produce a track from start to finish, and how to arrange your songs in a way that will make them super effective. In addition, we will get into the theory of music production--how to build up tension using different sonic techniques; how to shape one section so that the next one is more satisfying; how tweaking certain parameters make your drums sound more "human"; etc.

About Asaf
I hold two doctoral degrees--a PhD in music theory and a DMA (Doctor of Musical Arts) in music composition. I have written music for singers, bands, orchestras, and chamber ensembles. I am also a professional guitarist, and have been performing pop, rock, jazz, and contemporary classical music for over 20 years. In addition, I am the author of the ear training book "Tonal SIght Singing, The Book".

I have 18 years of teaching experience, including 8 years at the college level. I have taught guitar, piano, music theory, composition, songwriting, and sound production. My students range from beginners to doctoral candidates in music.

Workflow tips and arrangement help. For the starters, getting familiar with Ableton. For the advanced, how to finish a track properly, from getting your ideas down on the arrangement window, to really getting it finished and demo ready.

About Chris
