I started taking weekly electric guitar lessons with Mr. Soukis at his Times Square studio, after watching many videos of him rockin' the blues at various venues in New York City. He is one of those rare teachers who is not only knowledgeable, but also able to share the knowledge with his students in a comfortable and relaxing manner. I have always been afraid of the guitar but the man has cured my guitar phobia. He has made learning the guitar approachable and fun!!

About Ronen
Hello to all, My name is Ronen and I am originally from Tel-Aviv, Israel.

I came to the United States to pursue my academic career in music and graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2007, majoring in Professional Music. My coursework included Music Theory, Music Technology, and Music Business as well as other related professional music courses. My practical experience included private lessons with internationally renowned drummers such as Dave Dicenso, Kenwood Denard, and Mike Mangini. Additionally, my hands-on classes included Rudimental Labs, Drum Labs, Fusion Labs, Studio Drumming Lab, Contemporary Applications for Percussion, and Afro-Cuban Drumming. Through this broad curriculum, I have expanded my cultural understanding of music.

With more than fifteen years of solid experience in the music world and teaching field, I am
a highly professional drum teacher and have been instructing students of all ages and levels informatively and creatively. Students under my teaching methods are engaged with numerous styles of music and cultures, and develop gradually while achieving excellent music and performance skills.

*** Lesson Details ***
In general, and depending on the student requirements, I teach drum rudiments, music notation, a range of styles, drum tuning and setup. As part of my method, I divide my class/lesson into four sections, which begins with warm ups and proceed with drum rudiments and coordination. I devote the second portion of the lesson to reading and playing orchestral snare drum pieces, and in the third section, students practice different types of rhythms. In these lessons, as well as in private classes, I use drum-method books such as Joel Rothman's Mini-Monster Book of Rock Drumming by Joel Rothman (Fort Lauderdale, Fla: J.R. Publications, 1981), Advanced Techniques for the Modern Drummer by Jim Chapin (New York: Jim Chapin, 1971), Ted Reed’s Progressive steps to syncopation for the modern drummer (Van Nuys, California: Alfred, 1996), as well as many music charts. In the last portion of the session, I engage students in an open discussion about their progress, improvements and goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Small studio: drum set, two drum thrones plus two drum pads, computer / mixing board and studio monitors , downstairs there is a living room or I can bring a chair if parents want to sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide : Books, Music Charts , skills and my knowledge
The student need provide : Drum Set , Drum Sticks , Stave paper / Music paper / Note Book

*** Specialties ***
I teach students separately and collectively. During my lessons, I teach drum rudiments, how to read drums’ musical notation, various rhythm styles such as rock, funk, shuffle, and drum tuning and setup. I divide my classes into four sections beginning with warm ups, which included drum rudiments and coordination; the second portion of the class is devoted to reading and playing orchestral snare drum piece, and in the third section, students are practicing various rhythms, where I included books such as Mini-Monster Book Of Rock Drumming by Joel Rothman, Four way coordination by Jim Chapin as well as various music sheets. The last portion is devoted to an open discussion and enable the students to ask questions which were not discussed during the lesson.

About Andrew
I've been studying music for 10 years now. Having come to music later in life than most, I find that I am more empathetic to the perspective of the beginning student than many teachers. I spent the Summer of 2009 teaching music fundamentals to groups of severely physically and mentally disabled children of all ages. Since then I've completed my Bachelors degree in Music, taught privately and with several established music schools.

To me, music is above all about transformation. Beautiful sound transforms our experience of the environment, and learning an instrument can help students approach life as one big instrument they need to practice to master.
Learning to play an instrument is also an experience of training one’s nervous system to gradually act and respond in new ways, and that kind of persistent, focused
, training is applicable to any new skill.
Last and definitely not least, playing music is fun.

*** Lesson Details ***

I plan my lessons around getting students to enjoy playing music as soon as possible, whether that means learning how to strum a chord rhythmically, playing their favorite song, or how to take a blues solo.
There are steps that have to be climbed to do more complex things and I encourage students to practice a little every day rather than for a long time once or twice a week. Developing a love of music and steady practice habits are more beneficial over the long term than practicing until your limit.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I currently have a living room space where I can teach, but it's small so it might be preferable to travel to you.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If necessary I can provide amplification, cables, and a microphone.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Folk, Blues, Rock, Hip-hop, Funk, Reggae.

About Ana
When I think about singing, I think about flow. The voice should be able to move without any inhibitions. I strive to sing in this way and to teach my students how to achieve to sing this way. My technique involves vocal warm ups that will help loosen your voice, your body and your mind. I also find that expression is very important in music. We will go into every song searching for the right emotions to convey not just for the song, but for yourself. With every lesson you will find it easier to correct yourself during your practicing and end up falling in love with making music.

About Grant
Music was a huge part of my upbringing. I had so many great teachers along the way, and I want to inspire young people to achieve their musical goals just like my teachers inspired me.

I'm a jazz trombonist from Charlotte, NC currently living in Washington Heights. After getting my B.M. in Trombone Performance from Appalachian State University, I moved to New York City to further my studies in the Master's Program at Manhattan School of Music. In 2016, I was the winner of the jazz portion of the Texas State Trombone Competition. I'm an active freelancer in the NYC jazz scene while I finish my studies.

Above all, I want to help cultivate a love of music in my students. The study of music teaches values that are not just relevant to performing, but to all of life: self-discipline, patience, humility, and the ability to listen to others.
I truly believe becoming a musician makes you a better person, and I want to help as many people as possible to follow that path.

I messaged Grant online and asked him some questions regarding what direction I should go next in order to further my trombone playing. The information that he was able to offer gave me a clear direction on what I should include in my practice sessions, and he was able to offer some advice on individuals I should seek out to learn from in North Carolina.

Working with Kalia was a wonderful experience. Given her education and experience, she certainly knows her stuff, but what impressed me just as much, or maybe even a little more given her pedigree, was her kindness and patience. I was a tad intimidated as a beginning student working with someone so accomplished, but she was recommended by a mutual friend and would come to my home so I gave her a try. She made me feel comfortable from the beginning, but is also not afraid to challenge me. I highly recommend Kalia.

About Kevin
I am a composer, lyricist, and multi-instrumentalist. I have over 15 years of music study under my belt, and graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a minor in music in 2010. I not only have extensive music theory knowledge, but also experience playing clarinet, saxophone, flute, banjo, and guitar.

I believe that a strong foundation in music theory is the most essential skill to have when learning a new instrument, or becoming proficient in an old one. Recently I co-wrote an original musical comedy about Lewis and Clark, which I also composed all of the music for. The 120 page score was written for piano and vocals, despite the fact that I do not play the piano. How was I able to write music for an instrument I do not play? By understanding the basic rules and concepts of music theory!

I am also a comedy writer an
d have written sketches, essays, short stories, television pilots, plays, and more! If you are struggling with your writing and need a teacher to help teach you the formatting and style you need to improve, I'm your guy!
