Excellent job and I am looking forward to my son having more lessons
Adeline
We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!

Very knowledgeable. My daughter enjoy learning from him.

Elia was my clarinet teacher for a year in Montreal. I have to say, I miss her since she moved back to NYC.
She has vast musical experience and is an excellent teacher.
She's been really helping me shape my music and my musicality with technique work and working on pieces that I really enjoy.
She is very supportive, she doesn't make you feel bad about your mistake and really help you to correct them.

Elia is a wonderful and talented instructor and i can only highly recommend her.
Chialing P.
I have been studying with Elia for the past year. I had trouble with rhythm and she went out of her way to bring exercises to me. She also teaches me on how to have a good tone. She is patient and I highly recommend her!
Neil
This was my first clarinet lesson for ten years, and I couldn't have asked for a better person to accompany me. Elia was friendly, enthusiastic, and quick to figure out what I need and understand what I want to achieve. I look forward to having a lot of fun rediscovering the clarinet in our subsequent lessons.

What kind of music do you like? Have you tried learning music from a method book and just didn't have fun? Over the past 5 years of teaching several instruments I have developed a system of learning songs that YOU love and learn what music is about. With the songs you want to learn, we talk about articulation, intonation, and many exercises to help you become better. We can talk about reed care, instrument care as well!

Brandon is fantastic. I don't know that he's ever given me a word of bad advice, and has been a HUGE help in getting my career as a producer and narrator off the ground. He's incredibly knowledgeable and skillful, and my experiences in both hiring him and learning from him have been absolutely fantastic. I would heartily recommend him!

Online Saxophone Teacher

In my 17 years playing the saxophone, I've performed in all sorts of places and styles - orchestras, jazz bands, chamber groups, rock concerts, musical pits, you name it! I've taught beginners, college students, and even retirees.

I've studied classical and jazz music at Carnegie Mellon, Duquesne, and Baldwin Wallace Universities with James Houlik, Mike Tomaro, and others. I have studied composition, music theory, and music history, too. After all, there's more to learning an instrument than just knowing which fingers to press down!

I can help you improve your skills and style whether you're just starting out on the sax or fine-tuning your college auditions!

Dan is an incredible saxophone teacher and he helped me a lot. In the quartet, he helped me how to listen to the other group members’ parts and then I can really fit into the group. For my solo piece, he gave me a lot of helpful comments, which helped me make my music sound beautifully. What he does all the time is helping me be aware of everything, and growing to be more professional!

Online Saxophone Teacher

While my degrees are in clarinet, I am also an accomplished saxophonist who has performed in ensembles throughout Colorado and Western Massachusetts, including jazz ensembles, musicals, and a professional saxophone quartet with performances at a regional North American Saxophone Alliance (NASA) Conference. I have experience ranging from helping students just learning their instrument all the way to students looking at All State or college auditions. My goal is to tailor lessons to meet each student's individual needs and interests, while still reinforcing good technique. Lessons will usually consist of doing a mix of different things such as: long tones, scales, etudes to improve technique and musicality, solos, duets, and Disney or jazz/pop tunes.

"Only one lesson so far but I really like Carl's approach. I wouldn't want a teacher who went "by the book" and just threw a bunch of lesson plans and exercises at me. Carl talked about what I like and what I want to play, listened to me some, and tailored the instruction to where I am at. This is a great place to start from."

He's also very capable of adjusting his teaching style to reflect the interests and needs of the student. For example, I've got some music reading skill, so Tony adjusted the lessons to reflect that. He and I txt when I have a question during the week. He's always encouraging."
