When I moved to NY, I wanted to turn myself into a singer/songwriter. I found teachers in the city, and took courses, practiced everyday, and now I play shows where I play piano, sing, and play flute both as a solo performance and in bands. I sing every genre including classical, jazz, pop, soul, and even rap.

Nina is amazing!!!!!!!! Best piano instructor..... kind and patient!!!! We simply adore her!!!!
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!

After 3 years of a extremely bad brake up with musical theatre. It was really nice to be back at it and Carolyn made me feel comfortable enough to actually take my first dance lesson in 4 years.
Paul H.
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.

In the 16 years that I’ve been teaching professionally, I’ve taught over 100 students, driven over 300,000 miles, and worn-out two cars, but it’s been worth every mile. The main focus of the lessons will always be to develop a solid, healthy technique. For those singers interested, we can also work on audition materials and I will coach them on all aspects of performing. To keep things "exciting," I bring a variety of genres of music to work on (classical, pop/rock, country, jazz, musical theater - I'm still working on my rap). I focus on helping singers work through vocal changes and coach them on finding their own unique sound.

About Megan

I have always loved music. I started singing when I joined the 3rd grade chorus, began studying violin in the 4th grade, and took up the alto saxophone in the 5th grade. I went to NYSSMA and SCMEA and LISFA. By the time I was a freshman in high school, I was giving violin and alto saxophone less

Meg is one of the best voice teachers you could ever hope to find. Not only is she knowledgable about a wide variety of genres and styles, but she also offers practical advice and constructive criticism to help you find your voice. She taught me the mechanics of healthy belting and mixing, and helped me develop my soprano range. Meg also has one of the most gorgeous voices you’ve ever heard! I cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking to study voice or singing!

Music Theory is just like grammar - the grammar of music. Don't let that scare you! Studying at the Mannes School of Music (a conservatory notorious for its very intense Music Theory classes) I have learned great strategies for tackling its difficulty. I will break down complex chordal harmony or counterpoint and give simple steps in order for you to completely understand the material. Or maybe you have no background in Music Theory - that is great too! I can start simply with learning how to reading music. A good foundation is very necessary! :)

I am able to teach Music Theory at 4 locations:
- Home Studio
- West 13th Street (Mannes School of Music)
- Your Home
- Online

"My son has been struggling with piano for a few years. Then we met Fawn and he began taking lessons with her. She created a bond with him and they work as a team to get him reading notes and playing correctly. This is a feat to get a 13 year old young man to do! In the past few months since we started with Fawn, I have seen a change in my son - one I had only hoped for. Last week he was jazzed by his piano work and Fawn makes him feel good about himself and his progress. The other teacher took months to teach him 1 song, doing a few measures each week. In 6 months he has played at least 40 songs a month. She knows how to move people forward, without skipping any of the important stuff. My son is reading music. He is loving piano. Huge turnaround. Thanks Fawn!"

He helps me feel at ease right away and to think positive, He gives me vocal exercises at each lesson and always sends me more songs and information on music and how to improve my singing. He is flexible about scheduling and is willing to teach me any songs I want to learn. He also has a great sense of humor, Definitely several points above average!"

5 Dumb Mistakes Amateur Drummers Make

Learning how to play the drums takes a lot of patience, dedication and of course, practice. The technical skills won't just appear overnight, and neither will the gigs or performances! As you progress in your lessons, there are a few crucial mistakes you'll want to avoid. Here are a few we can think of...   1. Not branching out. As a musician (not only a drummer), you'll gain a lot more exposing yourself to new and different types of music, rather than limiting yourself to one genre. Eve …
