I was looking for a vibrant, fun piano teacher for my kids as they were not motivated by strict teachers who also taught them boring songs they could not relate to. What a gift of a teacher we found in Catherine. Not only is she warm, kind, caring with an easy rapport for kids and adults alike but she is also an excellent piano and voice instructor. This talented lady is a professional singer too who is well versed in Broadway show tunes and opera too. She also instill her students with a sense of musical rhythm and is holistic in her approach to kids who might need a little physical warm up before class in order to attend better. Catherine’s voice is magnificent and we were fortunate enough to attend a show where she played the lead for The Taming of the Shrew.
She is a professional voice and classical opera teacher too and this complements her piano instruction .. A perk is she can travel to your home or does lesions in her own home . In addition
is a passionate, excellent voice teacher for anyone who is looking to hone their vocal skills and talents. I wholeheartedly recommend Catherine - her lessons are more than just teaching - she is a true mentor and educator in every sense of the word.

Extremely caring and knowledgeable. My grandchildren loved her while we were taking lessons. We only stopped because they live too far away. I highly recommend Catherine!!

There are multiple approaches to studying Flamenco guitar, depending on the ultimate goal. In the simplest you just learn some techniques and scales to begin or complement your playing. In the more advanced you learn all the intricacies, the details and rules including the structures, "compas", techniques and most advanced "falsetas" or musical segments. Whichever interests you, I would strive to provide you with an understanding and a real foundation. The lessons I offer include some of my own transcriptions of most of the material I teach, including compositions by Paco de Lucia and Sabicas. Flamenco playing will enhance any other forms of guitar playing you may already possess, and will inspire you to reach higher levels.

About Jose

I started learning Flamenco guitar as a teenager, and this allowed me to experience what is necessary for a young mind to learn and grow in this beautiful art form. Its sounds and techniques captivated me and it is that very beauty what will surely keep you learning, regardless of your musical goa

Voice Acting is a blast! I've enjoyed doing it professionally for two decades and I love it now even more than when I started. I love to work with students, enthusiasts and professionals of all ages- honing technique, developing their various styles, recording their V.O. reels and helping them to start making money using their voices!

Ms. Danielle is a wonderful / excellent instructor. I booked 10 sessions with Ms. Danielle for vocal training and it was worth every dollar. I am singing this week at a big event, and because of Ms. Danielle vocal training, I am prepared to sing three back to back songs with the strongest voice ever!!!! Ms. Danielle doesn't know it yet, but I do plan to make her my life vocal coach.
Rob
The rating says it all. Best. Instructor. Ever. Danielle is amazing. She's so patient and kind and loving. Half the reason I take lessons from her is because she makes me feel so good about myself. She's so much more than a singing teacher. She's a creative guide. She will help you move beyond self doubt and explore your creativity. And of course, my rhythm and pitch are improving rapidly. Can't recommend her enough!
Liz T.
I enjoy my first lesson with Ms. Danielle. She is a great singing coach. I am looking forward to learning great singing skills from this instructor.

My favorite. My bread and butter.

I have help clients audition with Shakespeare, directed them, and acted in them for over 15+ years. Shakespeare isn't scary to me, it's beyond fascinating. I've taught it to childen under 8, taught college classes, and directed and acted in many professional productions in NYC. Our approach can be catered to you and also give you tools to take into the audition and rehearsal room.

ASPECTS OF SESSIONS
- Auditioning
- Breaking down the script
- Language
- Iambic pentameter
- Monologues
- Simplifying Shakespeare
- Personalizing
And others...

Alden
The sessions exceeded my expectations. My anxieties melted away with Serena’s personality, calmness, and thorough teaching style. It’s a real genuine experience. Serena brings innovative and natural techniques that would serve well to anyone who wants to better themselves in singing, artistry, or simply picking up healthier activities to make them more well rounded individuals.
Luba K.
Serena taught my 8 year old son for 9 beginner lessons. The scheduling did not work out for us to continue.

I loved her teaching style! She is calm but also fun for the boy. He loved the warm up exercises. In only 30 minutes of class they were able to play several little pieces. My son could then practice and master them at home. That gave him a sense of accomplishment. This approach is better than working on a hard piece and being frustrated. She focused on sight reading from the start instead of memorizing which is a great habit.
Heather L.
Serena is very knowledgeable and super helpful with my daughter' s audition prep. Highly recommend!

"I highly recommend Tibor. He is an excellent dance instructor and unbelievably talented. Not everybody has the patience and skill set to teach, but Tibor is extremely good at this. I always leave my dance lessons feeling like I have accomplished something. Tibor makes learning dance fun and he listens carefully to my wants and needs. Tibor is very good at articulating and demonstrating each step and he knows how to slow down or advance me faster depending on how quickly I am getting it. Tibor has great energy and is very respectful and professional. He makes me feel comfortable and gives me encouragement that really builds my confidence on the dance floor. I really can’t say enough about how wonderful Tibor is as a genuine and authentic person and a dance instructor. I feel lucky to be working with him."

"I have really enjoyed my time spent in workshop classes with Jan! She is a very talented teacher and knows how to get things out of people that they didn't know they were capable of.

Her techniques and exercises are amazing to watch as the intended result will come out of the student that she is working on. I learned just as much watching other students in the class go through the techniques as I did during my own performances and critiques.

She has a beautiful presence and I instantly felt comfortable around her like I'd known her for a long time. I think that is so important to feel that trust and comfort when opening yourself and exposing things dealing with singing and performing.

I can tell that she is very passionate at what she does and she is VERY GOOD at it as a result. She wants to help people in a positive way and is very encouraging.

I also love how her exercises are not only physical but get you thinking ahead about positive wonderful things that are of your dreams; it helps you to envision and eventually attract the positive things that you dream of. For example, she had us describe our "perfect 24 hour day". That was an amazing concept to me. If you can envision your perfect day and your perfect circumstances, you are so much closer to actually achieving them! These exercises help and instantly translate to better singing and better performing as we witnessed in the class. She is full of these tricks and techniques!

I would highly recommend working with Jan. She has a wealth of experience and wisdom to share with as many students that are lucky enough to work with her."
