About David
I am a 20 year musician with 11 years teaching experience. Born and raised in New York City, I attended Laguardia high school for music and art and afterward Queens College majoring in music. My main instruments are Clarinet, Drums, and Saxophone, but i also have a strong background in Piano, Trumpet, and Flute. I've taken private music lessons for the past 15 years with world class musicians, among them David Weber and Howard Hirsch. I've performed in every major concert hall in New York City, including Carnegie Hall when i was only 11 years old. I performed alongside many famous musicians, including the late Tito Puente.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching includes all aspects of music; Musical theory, sight singing, as well as Music History. My teaching style allows the child to have fun while they learn their instrument, but I emph
asize a strong practice regiment. Your child will understand that while learning music and an instrument can be fun, there will be some work involved if they want to become great. I usually use either the Alfred or Rubank method books to supplement a curriculum that I tailor make for each individual student. Any question or confusion a student has about anything during the lesson will be explained in detail and dealt with until he/she understands the concept. I've had many students pass all levels of the ABRSM and NYSSMA exams as well as receive academic scholarships for musical excellence.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in the living room, drums set, piano,

*** Travel Equipment ***
I require that students buy the books I suggest, but if it is necessary, I can provide photocopies of pages from the books that I own. I also require my students to provide all writing equipment.

*** Specialties ***
all methods and styles. I've played clarinet and saxophone for orchestras, symphonic bands, and jazz bands. I've played drums for jazz, rock, and acoustic sets.

David came on time for our schedule lesson and came in ready to go. He helped my son the corrected way to blow trumpet (which he never learn from school) and broke down lesson so that he is not over wheeled. In just first lesson, I can hear the difference in my son's use of trumpet.

I currently teach alto and tenor saxophone at the New School for Leadership and the Arts, but I have many years' experience teaching music to students of all ages. I teach to the abilities, passions, and ambitions of the student(s).

About Gio
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studi
o Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

About Lauren
I have taught students from the age of four to sixty in all levels of flute, piccolo, alto and tenor saxophone as well as beginner clarinet.

Since I started playing at age 11, I have been fortunate enough to study with some prolific musicians including: UNT sax professor Brad Lelei, Grammy nominated saxophonist Myron Walden, and world renowned bass player Reggie Workman. I currently study saxophone at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in NYC. In my lessons we'll have fun while focusing on your goals. Through practice and the materials I provide, you will notice a dramatic increase in your musical abilities. See you soon!

About Alexander
At my lessons, I use the experience and knowledge that I have acquired from over 13 years of playing and studying music to teach students how to take their playing to the next level and reach their goals.

A recent graduate of The New School for Jazz and Contemporary music, Alex finds the best way to learn is in a fun, stress-free environment, where the instructor pays close attention to the needs of their students. I believe in cultivating an appreciation for jazz and other styles of music, paying close attention to detail, and building a strong foundation through focused practice.

I've attend Alex lessons since more than 6 months. He has been extremely accomodating with my crazy work-schedule and available to change hour or day even with small advance notice.
During the lessons we have fun and that is what I think is the most important thing!
Alex is really passionate about music and is capable of transmit this passion during his lessons.
I would definitely recommed him as a teacher!

My five lessons with Ashley was fruitful and productive. She takes time out to come up with a lesson plan. She also emails me a summary of the lesson after every lecture. With Ashley’s help I was able to improve my embouchure and expand on my ability to read and write music. I highly recommend you give her a try.

I approach each student differently according to their level and their needs. In most lessons the focus will be on improving technique through playing etudes and scales. I have experience in preparing students for the NYSSMA solo festival. I am also an experienced jazz musician and can teach improvisation. Looking at harmony and studying the masters of the music is how I teach jazz.

About Matt
I am a saxophonist with 13 years of experience who just graduated from college. In my lessons I will go through all of the fundamentals that students need, but we will always have fun, because if we are not having fun then there is something I am doing wrong.

Here's What to Know Before Buying an Instrument
Thinking about buying a new instrument? It's a big decision, as an instrument is truly an investment -- especially if you're spending several hundred dollars (or more, for higher-end brands and models) on it.
