Experienced teacher of 5 years able to teach all levels of experience. I am a graduate of The New School of Jazz and Contemporary music. While at the New School I studied with some of the masters including Reggie Workman, Billy Harper, Jane Ira Bloom, Matt Wilson, Dave Glasser, Peter Bernstein, Vic Juris and many others. Additionally, I was a tutor for three years in every subject so I know their curriculum back to front. I am available to teach Ear training, Sight Reading, Improvisation, Music Theory, Rhythm, Arranging, Composition, Music Appreciation, Guitar doubling on bass and much more. I am able to teach all music styles. I also play French Horn and bass at a high level. I love teaching and helping students on their own musical paths.

I've been a professional singer and actress for over twelve years, performing on Broadway in Lincoln Center's Tony-winning Revival of "South Pacific" and touring the county with Rob McClure and Anika Larson in the First National Tour of "Avenue Q." I have an MFA in Performing Arts from Savannah College of Art and Design, graduated summa cum laude, and was the only female recipient of the Presidential Scholarship for Vocal Performance. My BA is in Arts and Education from Hobart and William Smith Colleges.

I teach all levels of singing and am familiar with different styles, like contemporary musical theatre, legit, belting, and pop/ rock. As an actor who sings I think it's important to connect with the text and let the vocal technique support those choices for the most compelling performance. My passion is creating audition cuts and crafting them into bite-sized yet complete scenes. Audition technique is key if you want to be in shows because someone has to cast you first. Over 95% of ...

Sheila
A-mazing! She’s an awesome mentor! Her approach to singing is brilliant in the sense that she helps you explore yourself, your strengths and areas you could work on to improve. She helps you find and utilize your voice in a way that makes a unique artist. She digs in right to the foundation of singing (vocals) and performing. I am glad to have found her! And to add up, I never had a dull moment with her with her sense of humor and caring approach!

Rebecca is wonderful at helping my daughter learn better public speaking skills.

I have had a very positive experience with Adam as my guitar instructor. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. I could see myself making progress and look forward to my next lesson!
Mark
I've been taking lessons from Adam for about 3 years now - He is an amazing teacher! I took lessons before when I was younger but I quickly lost interest. I decided to get back into it later in life (I'm 35 now), but I still struggled to find the right teacher. One was too serious and the other was too relaxed and I felt like I wasn't actually making any progress. With Adam I got the best of both worlds! I was getting better at the guitar, and at the same time I was enjoying myself throughout the whole process. I'm still taking lessons with Adam and I would recommend that you do the same!
Paul
I took jazz guitar for two years from Adam. He’s a great teacher and excellent musician. As a former “cowboy chords” guitarist, I jumped from 5 to about 15 chords in a few weeks. Adam is patient and lots of fun. I still catch some of his gigs when I’m back in NYC.

She is very talented and very good with time management, friendly and personal. I hope to go far with my new instructor. I'm sure I will."
