Whether you are just beginning or are looking to come back to the piano, together we can develop your skills so you can learn to read music and play piano!

About Brenda
Hello, my name is Brenda! It is nice to meet you.

I have been teaching private lessons for over a decade, and hold two music degrees and two teaching certifications in music (NJ) and ESL (international). I obtained my B.M. in Music Education from William Paterson University where I was a voice major and flute/piano double minor, and obtained my Masters of Music in Performance with the Opera Institute at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University.

Although I do work with students of all ages, I specialize in working with younger children and retired adults!

I primarily teach voice, flute, piano, music theory and history and have over 10 years of experience teaching in both individual and group settings. I also work on audition and performance preparation, do speech/accent work and more. I am constantly studying different
teaching methods so I can develop a custom program that best fits your learning styles and incorporates what you already know, with what you will need to learn in order to achieve your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you want to play flute, sing, act, or learn to play piano, I am here to help you become the best musician you can be. Classically trained, I also work with the styles of musical theatre, pop, rock, and jazz. I can teach you the proper techniques, posture, and breathing necessary to perform to the best of your ability and teach you how to utilize your full lung capacity to extend phrasing length and dynamic range. I will also help you learn to read and write music. Together, we will keep a log to track your progress lesson to lesson. This will also help you keep a record of the steps you are taking to obtain and achieve your goals and dreams.

*** Specialties ***
Young and beginner students.
Senior & Retired students
Students with special needs.
Performance techniques.
Audition preparation
Speech techniques (public speaking/voice-overs, etc.)
Bel Canto technique.
Performance anxiety
Life coaching!

My daughter plays flute in a high school wind ensemble and orchestra. She is first chair of 23 and has recently been learning very challenging music including many solos. When she needed instruction above what her school could offer her, I went online and found Brenda's profile. Brenda's resume for performance and teaching is impressive. What the resume can't speak to is how well she works with her students. Brenda helped my daughter immensely when she needed it most not only technically with her playing, but with her confidence. I would recommend Brenda as an instructor for any age or skill level.

I studied music and piano at the University of Central Florida. My main focus there was classical and jazz guitar, but I also had to demonstrate my proficiency in piano. I've been playing and teaching piano for six years since then. I've worked with young children, teenagers, and even adults, so I'm happy to work with new students, novice to intermediate, of any age.

Lessons are built on a foundation of reading music notation and basic harmonic theory. We learn everything from from Bach to Beethoven and beyond! I'm happy to recommend books for beginners, depending on the age and skill level of the student.

About Gio
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studi
o Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

With over 10 years of teaching experience, I am able to prepare students for polished, accurate, playing with an emotional connection. Beginners will learn to read music using method books that are supplemented with authentic classical pieces (as opposed to beginners' versions of popular pieces). Intermediate students will learn classical pieces from all musical eras. We will cover all major and minor scales, arpeggios, sight reading, and aural skills.

About Cindy
Regardless of where your musical interests lie, I can help you improve your skills! Growing up, I fell in love with playing and singing all styles of music! I've delved into classical, jazz, R&B, soul, gospel, reggae, soca, pop and musical theater, and I can teach you how to apply proper technique to the genre(s) of your choice!

If you're looking to become a better singer, we will focus on finding the beauty and power in your voice in a healthy manner. Vocal health is an important component of everything I teach, and I work to eliminate strain and vocal fatigue. We will work on balancing your vocal registers to give you control over the troublesome middle range. With a healthy foundation in place, we will fine tune your skills by addressing pitch accuracy, vocal control, phrasing, dynamics, expression and microphone technique.

If y
ou're interested in playing piano, you will learn how to read music and/or play by ear. You'll learn scales, chords, arpeggios, sight-reading, and basic music theory. For singers who are interested in piano, I've developed a great technique to teach you how to accompany yourself.

For songwriters, I can help you write stronger lyrics and set them to music appropriately.

In general, I'm pretty upbeat and fun. However, I expect you to practice. When you practice, you hear and feel the difference and everyone's happy! If you don't practice, you'll remain in the same place, and it's frustrating for everyone. :( Please, please, please practice! :)

My degree in music education and wide range of experience allows me to accommodate different learning styles. I have a knack for breaking down seemingly difficult or mysterious concepts in a way that's easy to understand. I also understand the demands of being a full time musician, and can offer advice to students who are interested in going that route.

I would love to help you enhance your enjoyment of music by making it fun and easy for you to learn!

Our daughter was very excited about her lesson with Cindy. She thought it was incredibly helpful, making singing “easier” in a single lesson. She also liked how friendly and positive Cindy was and how well she explains technique. She is asking to take many more lessons with her. Very professional and talented instructor.

From the moment we walked in Cindy made my shy daughter immediately feel at ease. Her approach and ability to connect with students at any age (I overheard her lessons with an older woman), makes her a gem. She provided helpful tips to help improve while practicing. With each lesson, my daughter walked away feeling more confident and clear on what she needed to practice at home. I would definitely recommend her.

Josh is an incredible musician, teacher, guitar, and bass player (haven't tried his singing lessons yet). His knowledge on both theoretic and practical aspects of music (acquired during his studies as well as several tours with world class bands) is very broad which makes his lessons fun and dynamic, a major plus for motivation and learning process.
With his "hands on" guitar lessons we quickly built a fun song's set which was custom made for my skills level at the time. Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog" was among one of the first songs I learned, and by then I had basic chord's as well as a couple major scale positions knowledge.
I ve been seeing Josh (lately via Skype, which saves me 1 hour a day in commute) for the past 3.5yrs and nowadays I am actually playing with a band which goes live every now and then, despite my challenging 10+ daily work hours.
Josh was instrumental to keep me motivated all the time, I strongly recommend giving him a try.

Josh Lattanzi is an excellent guitar teacher. He is a knowledgable, skilled and accomplished musician who has really helped me make sense of what has always been a confusing instrument for me.

Josh's style is patient, supportive and also very funny. He's the reason I love playing guitar and didn't get scared off by bar chords.

He also can play absolutely anything, and tailors my lessons to help me play the kind of stuff I write the best possible way. I am really grateful to be taught by him and will continue to take lessons as long as he's teaching.

Where do I start?

Josh Lattanzi's guitar lessons are simply the best. I started taking lessons with Josh after I graduated college. I was moving to New York to pursue songwriting and found Josh's website online, deciding to try out a lesson based on his experience as a musician and a teacher.

Now, over five years later I can confidently say that if I hadn't chosen Josh my career as a songwriter would be completely different. He goes above and beyond for his students.

I am simply incredibly lucky to have taken that initial step of a first lesson with Josh of NYC Guitar Lessons.

Josh is a patient, focused but fun teacher. His breadth and depth of knowledge of music, guitar and other instruments is extensive, and lends to thorough and thoughtful teaching.

The thing that I love most about taking lessons with Josh is that he is incredibly flexible, willing and able to tailor each student's lessons based on what their ultimate guitar goals are. It made it easy to refer friends to him that wanted to lean basics of guitar and suggest lessons to friends in the songwriting community who had more specific goals in mind.

I really can't speak highly enough about my experiences as an NYC guitar lessons student with Josh.

For the last 3 years I have been teaching beginner piano to people of all ages. Understanding the fundamentals of piano and music theory is going to be the foundation of your musical future. We will learn how to read notes off a staff, learn rhythms, play to a tempo, utilize both hands, play scales, chords, and accompany yourself or others. There's always room to learn a fun pop song!

I want to help you build confidence, learn to play piano, craft your songwriting and performance skills, or even get booked in a musical. We are going to have a lot of fun, so get ready to laugh, get ready to learn, and most importantly, get ready to grow!

Dan is definitely the best voice instructor I have ever had. Not only is he warm and down to earth, he is incredibly supportive, knowledgeable and makes practice fun. He took a lot of time to get to know my goals and interests when it came to singing; my confidence in my voice has been shaken a lot due to less than encouraging voice instructors and he was very empathetic and genuine in his support. I would highly recommend him as a voice instructor!

I like to focus on cultivating a love for music in my lessons! Too often, I have heard adults tell stories of giving up on music lessons at an early age, just because they didn't enjoy it! I think every kid learns differently, and creating a lifetime passion for music is the most important part of beginner lessons!

Hi, I'm Caroline! I love to sing, write songs, play the piano, saxophone, and a little guitar! I recently graduated from the Frost School of Music in Miami, where I got my degree in Songwriting and Music Entrepreneurship. My favorite classical composer is Chopin, but I am a huge musical theater nerd, and love to learn Broadway songs on the piano!

Ever wanted to play a song but can't find the sheet music? Ever found sheet music that lacks the sparkle you hear on the record? If you want to have command of the piano beyond just reading what's on the page - I can get you there! My piano teaching is based on strengthening 3 different areas, reading music, ear- training, and chord improvisation. Have your classical technique make your contemporary playing stronger and vice versa! Through these methods, you'll be able to be confident in playing classical, pop, jazz and whatever your ears desire. Take your piano foundation to the next level and also be able to write your own songs,compose your own pieces and record them yourself. I am passionate about enabling my students to learn piano in a cutting edge and relevant way.

About Anh
I've been professional singer, songwriter and producer for the past 5-6 years. I've had musical placements on MTV Europe, BBC Radio1 and Netflix. I graduated from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, majoring in Music Production and Songwriting with an emphasis on Contemporary Keyboard.

I am passionate in giving my students tools beyond the conventional methods of traditional music lessons. Many teachers, overemphasize virtuosity at the expense of versatility. Traditional music lessons often result in memorization, regurgitation and limit musicians to only what's "on the page." I believe in tailoring my teaching methods to fit every student's visual, auditory and kinesthetic styles of learning. I believe in building a strong technical foundation so they can break any "rule" they wish.

In addition to musical skill
s, my lessons will include the basics to learning how to record yourself and your compositions. Learning how to sing, play piano, and write music is a way to understand yourself. It can also be the foundation to a fruitful, creative career. Let me be the guide you to becoming the musician you want to be.

Music has been a huge part of my life! I have a strong background in performance with various instruments (voice, piano, trombone,...) and I also have experience in the field of education. I have started a Voice Coaching department at a recording studio in MD, taught piano lessons with Playtime Academy of the Arts, and have taught bigger classes as a music teacher in Gymboree Play and Music and as a 1st grade and Kindergarten teacher with South Bronx Classical Charter School.

Because of my background in performance and experience in education with different age groups, I am able to work with each student to better assess and meet their needs for growth and improvement.

Let's make music! I look forward to hearing from you~

About Hannah
Hello! I have always loved music and production and have played piano since I was 3 years old. I grew up and studied music in Maryland but have always wanted to move to NY. My background is in performance, mainly with opera/classical voice and piano. Although I specified in opera in school, I still performed and learned other genres such as jazz and contemporary. While in New York, I have been teaching music in class settings and also taught general classes in 1st grade and Kindergarten with South Bronx Classical Charter Schools. I would love to show people how to learn to sing in any style with the core basic knowledge and training of voice. I can also teach piano, theory, and how to compose.
