In addition to polishing a piece to play in a public venue, I help the student prepare their presentation from appropriate dress, to walking on stage, performing with or without a mic and general stage presence.

Performance opportunities are relayed to students during their lessons.

John G.
He's a really great guy. Really liked his lessons, he's great at the guitar, and really smart about helping you to understand the fundamentals and really build a solid base upon which to grow as a guitar player. Unfortunately, I had to move away from Staten Island to Brooklyn, so I had to discontinue lessons, otherwise I definitely would have continued with him.
Anthony Russo
Best guitar teacher out there, Period! John A literally transformed my guitar playing, John does not give, generic, one size fits all lessons. John prepares custom made lessons for all his students, and Always goes the e,straight mile for me. I have have had many teachers, Jphn is by far the best, and truly cares a bout his students. Thanks John A !

I have known Sherrine for almost a year, in which she taught me Jazz vocals. I have a classical background and knew nothing about jazz at the time. Sherrine took time to explain me all I needed to know and begin my studies as a jazz vocalist. I adore her and recommend her to anyone who is looking for a private instructor.
Dr. Marc-Andre
I don't think there is enough words in the english language to express my gratitude for Sherrine. I spent 2 years under sherrine's tutelage, and during that time the amount of growth I experienced as a vocalist was remarkable. Sherrine is warm, inviting, and very focus on helping her students reach new heights during each lesson. I highly recommend Sherrine.
Amelia D
Ms. Sherrine has really helped me with my confidence as well as vocals. She is a pretty relaxed teacher and is welcoming to you. When I first started taking lessons with Ms. Sherrine I was very shy and tensed up all the time. But she helped me relax and loosen up a bit. And whenever I have lessons with her she made me fall in love with music all over again. She always made lessons fun while teaching me many new things.

Rhonda
After speaking to multiple tutoring companies, we discovered Matthew. Matthew was very professional and made my son feel comfortable. They had a total of 5 tutoring sessions covering Math, English, Science and Reading. My son took the ACT after his tutoring sessions and scored a 23. We were very pleased with the progress our son made by going from an ACT score of 19 to 23 after only 5 sessions with Matthew. I would highly recommend Matthew J. Horwich to anyone needing tutoring.
Carroll
Matthew explained his approach to coaching and the plan so we were able to make an educated choice on the best tutor for our son. Matthew was responsive, organized and worked very well with our son. He communicated directly with our son and cc:ed me so that I was aware of the plan and f/u. His scores did improve on the SAT and we were pleased with the investment.
Gaetano
Matt has been awesome for my student. His math skills have improved greatly, and his  writing has come from illegible to what can now be described as neat and readable.  Matt has been very patient and deliberate with our son and has taken the time to really  explain things to Jake in a way he can understand. We would recommend this tutor to  any parent looking for a tutor for their grammar school student! Matt is also reliable and  prompt and showed up when expected which was helpful with our very busy schedules.

"My 7 year old son has been taking recorder lessons from Dimitry for almost 1 year now. Dimitry is very patient, encouraging, and enganging - considering that my son is on the younger side. Dimitry provides music instruction that is appropriate age and level wise, so my son feels accomplished and challenged at the same time.
We plan to continue with Dimitry and hopefully advance to the clarinet once his fingers can cover the clarinet holes and he has learned more music theory. My son looks forward to his music lessons. We are very pleased with his musical instruction."

"The thing is, everyone wants to hone their skills when it comes to performance, but getting the skills isn't the only thing that you need to do. That is where Jan comes in, she can teach you how to sing, she can tell you when your act is not up to par. More importantly, she can teach you how to relate to your music (most likely you can't), and how to build a relationship with the audience in the short amount of time you're on stage (you probably don't know how to do that either). Jan has worked with people at every level and so she has really honed her craft when it comes to teaching. If you are a student of music performance, she can take you to that next level no matter where you are at. I've taken voice lessons in a private setting by a former vocal-music pro who has worked with former Mrs. Kentucky winners, and with teachers on the University/Collegiate level. Jan is the best I've had so far.

Notes:
1. Come eager to learn, not eager to talk about your life story. A lot of students go to lessons and talk a lot. You don't want to do that, you will miss out on the instructions and performance philosophies that you need from her. Listen more than you talk.

2. Come with clear objectives. If you don't have them, spend time with her developing those objectives. She is an objective oriented person when it comes to teaching, be an objective oriented student.

3. She has really competitive prices for her teaching quality. The hour is worth it.

4. Come with a lot of respect, she will give you a lot of respect if not more. She treated me almost like I was an old friend, and she is a really charming lady. Be nice to her : )

5. She is a really nice person and won't hurt your feelings. She has really good social awareness so you don't have to be afraid of that. If you can drop your ego at the door and take criticism, go ahead and ask her for that extra bit that you need to get you even further. Have some skin in the game.

6. Don't waste your time trying to figure out how good of a teacher she is during your lesson, you can read that stuff online. Come to her studio to get work done.

7. Ask questions that she can give quick answers to (it helps her know that you're hungry to learn). Bring something to write with."

"I can speak to Drew being a wonderful performer, as both a solo artist and in choral ensembles. She has developed a very good stage presence, whether it is on a Saturday night at an East End Louisville Bar, or on Sunday morning at a New Albany church choir. At her young age, she has a good foundation for how a future musician will be expected to conduct themselves to enhance their musical performance career. She is also very blessed with a great gift for her vocal and instrumental skills."
