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!
Ashna S.
Very knowledgeable. My daughter enjoy learning from him.
Isabel Z.
So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

Anybody can play a musical instrument. It’s my job to help students become better at playing their instrument.
For example, making sure they use their fingertips to press on the strings so their fingers do not interfere with the other strings while playing chords. Using a metronome to improve their timing, etc.
I’m in the process of developing a leveling system to help monitor progress. For example level 1 would include open position minor scales and level 2 would include open position major scales. I believe this system will not only help monitor progress but also give students a feeling of accomplishment.

Online Songwriting Teacher

I am a professional musician, composer, producer, engineer, and recording artist. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the music conservatory at SUNY Purchase with a major in Studio Composition, and obtained my Masters of Music from NYU, focusing on Music Technology and Songwriting.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their playing, composing, producing, or recording. Every person is different, and we all learn differently from each other. I cater my teachings to each of my students based on their subject of focus and goals. My versatility, experience, and classical training helps me to make the learning experience easy, stress free, and fun.

As a seasoned songwriter of 15+ years, I have made a career in the recording studio. As a player, I have toured internationally. I have worked as a chief engineer, as well as studio manager, at some of the biggest and most famous studios in New York City. I've written, recorded, mixed, and mastered music for the ...

He has produced me numerous times on songs that I've written, but needed them to come to life. He works FAST and SIMPLE. I can't say enough about his professionalism, musicianship, follow through and kindness. Anyone looking to learn will get a dedicated teacher that will make sure you can walk away with the knowledge you need. Guaranteed!"

"Having worked with Greg over the course of several years now, I have the deepest respect for his teaching ability. As a performer with over 25 years of experience, I find it a rare and special talent for someone as gifted as Greg is (as an artist) to be as humble and willing to listen as he most certainly is. He promotes a learning atmosphere of safety while also ensuring excellence is produced by students. His grasp on musical theory is second to none, and his skill as a seasoned guitarist ensures that what is being taught by him is both credible and of the highest standards.
I am privileged to know Greg personally as well as professionally, and I can vouch (once again) for his humility, skill, professionalism, credibility as a working artist, integrity, and work ethic. His heart is to watch the lights go on in his students and his passion in doing so serve to distinguish him as one of th"

Lyrically Stuck? Think Like Eddie Vedder

Earlier this week, Eddie Vedder announced the venues for his upcoming solo tour, stopping in 13 cities to promote his 2011 album "Ukelele Songs." The tour begins on April 11th in Las Vegas, and then works across the country, ending on May 16th in Orlando.  Pearl Jam embarks on its European tour just one month after. Vedder's passion-filled lyrics, ranging in topics from personal to political, have made him one of the most prominent songwriters of the rock-and-roll genre.  Pair that with his …
