Lynne is such a great teacher and is so wonderful with my 7 year old daughter. She’s extremely patient and makes the lessons fun and interesting. My daughter always looks forward to piano lessons and I love seeing how she’s progressing with her sight reading and scales.

I have been in music and dance since the age of 5, and I have had amazing experiences as a musician and fine arts educator. I teach multiple instruments, singing, dancing, and acting. I've played with Paul Simon's bass player (Bakithi Kumalo) several times where I sang, played piano, and flute.
I've been teaching for 20 years now, and I have an almost 100% success rate at keeping students for 5 years or more because I see each person as an individual and because of my extensive experience, can tailor custom lessons to achieve any goal the learner might have.
Many of my students are at the top of the musical group, win state and national competitions, have gotten scholarships into music college, perform gigs at various coffee houses and restaurants and such, many have won talent competitions, and it has been great therapy for several students.
I am very nice, encouraging, and exacting. Because I try to 'see' each individual, I can properly motivate each one to produce ...

Julie
Nina has been teaching my three boys piano for almost 10 years. Words cannot express how lucky I feel to have found her. She is very patient and has been excellent about keeping them interested and excited about music and performances at NYSSMA festivals and recitals. The three boys are very different and Nina varies her approach and temperament to inspire, motivate and to develop concentration. She encourages them to not only improve technically, but to understand the meanings and emotions of each piece. I give her my highest recommendation!

i have been working with Carolyn for the past couple of years and she is excellent. Clearly very skilled and a very experienced teacher. Very patient as well, especially when I have not had much time to practice. She totally understands I have work commitments that take priority.
I enjoy every lesson and I am so pleased that I can pick up music scores and play with confidence. I thoroughly enjoy each class.

Excellent!
Amy G.
Carolyn is an incredible teacher and a fantastic role model. Her encouragement, patience, skill and attention to detail has resulted in my daughter having learned (and continuing to learn) more than we could have ever imagined musically (voice/piano), and about performing on stage. Being Carolyn's student has also resulted in our daughter having more self confidence and higher self esteem. Carolyn brings out the best in her students and the dedication that she has for them is unparalleled. It has been a joy to watch our daughter grow as a musician under Carolyn's instruction.

Singing is about releasing the inner you...the you who has always been inside, just bursting to get out! Training, shaping and fine-tuning your personal instrument is important to me. Watching you soar as the singer you've always been is my goal.

"David is very patient teacher and he truly personalizes his lessons. He focuses on what you want to learn (e.g. how to read music, learn to play a specific song), and he gets you there with great, fun exercises to encourage learning. He is really good with beginners. I would highly recommend David for the Uke."

"I've been taking voice with Corinne weekly for about 4 or 5 months now. I am not a professional singer or performer, but I was looking to treat myself by doing something just for me. I'm a full-time grad student who works full-time, so I really appreciate my personal, free time. Since I used to sing in high school and college, I decided it would be fun to look into voice lessons, which is how I came to Corinne. Corinne has been such a great addition to my crazy schedule! Considering I am doing this for my own enjoyment rather than professional goals, I let her choose the songs and what to focus on for each lesson, which works so well for me. I enjoy all my lessons and the best part is I get to have fun while improving my voice. I used to do choir and musical theatre years (and years) ago, and it's fun to learn new/different techniques and exercises. She records all the lessons, which is useful to both practice and just hear your own improvement. In short: Corinne is fantastic and I highly recommend seeing her!"

"I have been taking lessons with Marjorie for many years now. When I first started, I was so shy about my voice that I didn't even want to sing in front of her! But her easy going ways soon helped me to get over all of the fears I had. She has so many great techniques to help you breathe correctly, open up your voice, and enunciate properly. With her help, I was able to sing in front of an audience for the first time in my life, and I am now the lead singer of a cover band! None of this would have happened without her, which is why I can say that she changed my life for the better. It is a pleasure to learn from her, and I think she's having a good time as well. It is very apparent that she enjoys teaching her students as much as we enjoy learning from her."

Understand that this plank of wood with strings must be used to pull music out of your soul with the upper most of precision and dedication. Without this dudes dedication of 11 EMPHASIZE 11 years I would NEVER be half the musician I am. Not only has he promoted me to be the best musician I could be, but the best human I could be. I could never imagine my life with out his upbringings and could not imagine my life without an instructor of his caliber. I’m forever greatful for Peter F***** Scoma! Take lessons with this dude."

"Ahmad helped me crack the code and I'm learning and playing guitar with growing confidence.
The lessons are challenging and fun and I'm inspired to practice on my own.

Ahmad's talent and experience as a guitarist, guitar teacher and performer come through in small things such as making sure your metronome is loud enough and with more important items like performance preparation strategies such as playing in front of a neighbor or co-worker.

I only wish I had started lessons sooner!"
