Erin is one of the kindest and most engaging musicians I've ever had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know. She has a natural way with children which puts them at ease. She's thoughtful and completely professional. Her years of experience playing and her demeanor make her the perfect French Horn teacher. My son had the passion to learn to play and she tapped into his enthusiasm and matched it with her energy and appreciation of a student who is eager to learn! I can't say enough about Erin accept that she is uniquely talented and the perfect music teacher.

About Adam
A graduate of the University of Rochester with a B.A. in Music and Psychology and trained at renowned National Guitar Workshop, Adam is an experienced teacher and performer on the guitar, piano, ukulele, and bass in a variety of styles, including rock, pop, jazz, classical, and folk. Adam loves to share his passion for music with others, and ever since his first student, an autistic child, Adam has sought to make learning music fun, regardless of age, style, and ability.

*** Lesson Details ***
My approach to teaching music is strictly an individualized one, catering to the specific interests and goals of each student. I believe that if learning music is truly enjoyable and fun, students will develop a sincere love for their instrument. In teaching children, my emphasis is on instilling in them a love of music. While progressing in mus
ic obviously requires preparation outside of lessons, I consciously avoid asking students to practice. Instead, I incorporate the music and styles that appeal most to the student and use them as vehicles for teaching concepts.

I strive to make learning music fun, regardless of age, style, and ability. I organize an annual recital to showcase my students' talents and hard work.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide all music and instructional materials, and ask that students provide a clean, quiet area to hold our lesson, ideally with a music stand. I also ask that a student provide their own instrument. If providing an instrument is not possible, I ask that the student notify me so I can provide an instrument for them in the interim.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in a wide range of styles on the acoustic and electric guitar, piano, ukulele, and bass.

I explain music theory in a fun, clear, and articulate manner and show its benefits and application in song writing, learning music, and playing by ear. My extensive background in rock, classical, pop, folk, and jazz allows for a truly cater my instruction to my student's tastes.

I make it my mission to structure my lessons on my student's goals and interests and avoid imposing concepts that don't interest my students.

Adam does a great job of adjusting to the student's level of experience. I'm a beginner with some minimal uke experience, and he adjusted the pace of the lesson accordingly. I especially like his emphasis on contemporary music; he seems to have fun with music which, as someone who endured years of strict classical piano training as a kid, I find very refreshing.

At my lessons, I use the experience and knowledge that I have acquired from over 13 years of playing and studying music to teach students how to take their playing to the next level and reach their goals.

A recent graduate of The New School for Jazz and Contemporary music, Alex finds the best way to learn is in a fun, stress-free environment, where the instructor pays close attention to the needs of their students. I believe in cultivating an appreciation for jazz and other styles of music, paying close attention to detail, and building a strong foundation through focused practice.

I've attend Alex lessons since more than 6 months. He has been extremely accomodating with my crazy work-schedule and available to change hour or day even with small advance notice.
During the lessons we have fun and that is what I think is the most important thing!

Happy practicin'!

About Billy
I am a professional actor, singer, dancer, director, teacher and coach who lives in New York City. I LOVE what I do in every aspect of my artistic career, and I want to help students improve while also enjoying their work.

I have a degree in Music Education from East Carolina University, where I was also fortunate to participate in the Professional Actors Training Program and studied the Meisner Technique for 2 years. I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and helping students bring honest, organic emotional life to their performances.

I do have an eclectic life and schedule, but I am usually available to teach online no matter where I am in the world!

I also have performed in several Off Broadway shows, national tours and many regional theatres around the country. If you've ever seen a show at the esteemed Alabama Shakespeare Festival, you may have seen me I've done about 14 shows there over the past 11 years.

Whether you're looking for a vocal coaching, or working on a monologue or scene, I know we can have a great time breaking down the material so you can deliver an amazing performance!

About Theodore
I was born and raised within the Cathedral precincts of Wells, England. Son of a counter-tenor, grandson of a church organist, I was exposed to music early on. After moving to the U.S., I started playing trumpet at age ten. Developing skills as both a jazz and classical player, my studies took me to Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan for the entirety of my high school studies. Here, I was under the musical direction of trumpet professor, Ken Larson, and jazz director, Bill Sears. A recent graduate of The Juilliard School, and The Yale School of Music, my primary teachers have been Raymond Mase, Mark Gould, and Allan Dean. While at Yale, I held the Jazz Studies teaching assistant position, which allowed me to work with undergraduate students 1-on-1, to help with their improvisation skills, and general musical capabilities. I have taught
students privately in Maine, New York, and Connecticut and I look forward to teaching more!

I have performed under the direction of notable conductors which include Michael Tilson Thomas, Alan Gilbert, and Marin Alsop. I have also shared the stage with jazz legends Peter Erskine, Bob Mintzer, and Wynton Marsalis. My travels have taken me to perform at such well known venues as Constitution Hall D.C., Tanglewood, MA, and Carnegie Hall, NY. In 2012 I was a finalist in the National Foundation for Advancment in the Arts YoungArts program. I also received a nomination to be a Presidential Scholar in the Arts. I was featured on Garrison Keillor's radio show "Prairie Home Companion" as a classical and jazz soloist in the summer of 2012.
