Excellent coach. Trained well. My son learn a lot from class and has been using his new moves at home. He loved the chess.
Marisha K.
My son is learning piano and chess with josh. We live in Brooklyn and he’s coming from nj. He’s always on time (even in a thunderstorm)!!! He’s patient but firm with my 5 year old son who’s extremely fidgety and at times absent minded! He’s a very by the book kind of guy and ensures that my son understands the foundation before moving ahead!

Joshua is great my 6 years old seems very interested to continue learning

Private Saxophone Teacher

Saxophonist, Composer, Educator.
21 years of practice, 10 years of teaching, 1 MASTER of Pedagogy, 2 BACHELORS in Classical and Jazz Performance (New School, NY).

My motto is efficient work for maximum pleasure. The idea is to build up a strong foundation of basic technique of the instrument (body, sound, air, time) in order to quickly come to play along your music idols.

With more than 20 years of practice and more than a decade of experience teaching, I've seen and gone through all kinds of mistakes myself which allows me to really know the correct and sane way to play saxophone, effortlessly and beautifully. Moreover, I have played all kinds of music through the years going from Bach to John Cage, from pop to classical to jazz, afro-cuban, brazilian, etc. Therefore, I'll be able to adapt my teaching specifically to your goals and to enlarge your scope of knowledge.

Caution : risks of addiction, immense satisfaction and personal development.

As a group Clarinet and Flute teacher with Youth Orchestra of St. Luke's, Thomas Giles created an engaging and inspiring music learning curriculum for his students. At each recital all of his students were able to introduce themselves, the piece they have learned, and a bit of history or commentary to go along. Throughout online learning Dr. Giles continued a supportive and creative environment, even through zoom, where each of his students composed and performed their own piece. If you are looking for your student to come away from lessons with a high level of ability and confidence on their instrument look no further than Dr. Giles, they will have the added bonus of learning important skills such as public speaking and presenting. They may even take away some composition and arranging skills!

I have had such a great experience taking clarinet lessons from Elia. She is very good at motivating me to practice in a non-degrading way, and she is always so supportive of my progress and struggles. I find that her explanations are very helpful and easy to understand, which I think is important for any teacher. I feel like I've improved a lot in the short time that I have been working with her, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great teacher!
Patrick
Elle has been very helpful. I am an older student just beginning on the clarinet. Elle took the time to ask what by goal is and my music background. She is very patient and has given me a number of great suggestions to get started. She is always pleasant and positive and I look forward to our sessions.

I got a perfect score on NYSSMA thanks to the wonderful lessons from Elia! Elia was extremely organized and helped me stay on top of all of the audition requirements. She also gave me tips and exercises for my performance anxiety.
