Spiros is my guitar instructor for over a year now, I’m so happy to be learning with such an amazing Guitar master ūüėä.
Not only did I learn how to play, he actually thought me how to read music and work on my vocals.
I couldn’t be happier ūüėÉ.
I absolutely recommend to take him as your teacher, you will not regret it!

About Laura
Music is definitely the universal language, and there isn't a genre I don't love; it's important to me that that aspect be brought to lessons, as well! From humble New Jersey beginnings to an opera career, I've seen the power of what music can do!

Whether it's opera, musical theater, folk, rock, or just public speaking, anything YOU love to do, I would love to teach you! Having taught all ages and levels, from first graders to adults, from someone who's never sung a note in his or her life to semi-professionals, I cater my lessons to what YOU as a student need and are interested in.

Lessons shouldn't be a chore - I like to foster an environment you look forward to being a part of! I also think that music, like any sport, is hard work, and takes seriously practice; even hobbies take concentration and application! I understand and can
work with many schedules and work loads, but I expect my students to put at least half the effort into their lessons that I do!

Laura is a wonderful voice instructor! You can tell that she is very knowledgeable about music and voice overall. She makes my lessons very fun, but also informative at the same time. They are not just technical lessons about how to sing. Laura incorporates different teaching styles to accommodate her students' way of learning, and also works with you on the style of music you prefer. The only thing I hope for more of out of my lessons is to have more time singing, but I am a beginner and Laura makes sure you strengthen your foundations first in order to support your voice!

My 9-year-old son, Luke, who is on the spectrum (PDD-NOS) studied with David for the better part of a year and the experience was terrific. In addition to being extremely communicative and reliable, David was kind and patient. David kept Luke focused and entertained while also inviting him to think about rhythm in ways that made sense to Luke's brain. We happily traveled from Inwood to "Downtown Brooklyn" for lessons because the level of instruction was that good and, I think, Luke's progress demonstrates that. Luke was bitten by the hockey bug, so we are taking a break from percussion right now, but I wouldn't hesitate to return to David's studio should time allow in the future.

I provide drum lessons to students of all ages and levels, specifically tailoring my teaching methods to the students needs and goals. I have many years of professional experience as well as a formal education in music. I understand what it takes to further your skills to be able to play the music that inspires you! I received my BFA in Jazz Studies from The Ohio State University graduating in 2014. I'm currently working towards my Master's Degree at Manhattan School of Music. I've been very fortunate to travel all around the world playing music. My past students have been accepted in the Grammy Band as well as many prestigious universities throughout the country. I love all music, and I'm well versed in many different styles of playing. Music is my passion, and there are always fun, new and exciting things to learn. Whatever your int
erests are, we will grow as musicians together!

Ever since I've been taking lessons from John, my playing has gotten drastically better. He's incredibly knowledgeable, has access to tons of resources, and is super outgoing and engaging. Lessons with him truly made drumming into my passion, and he played a large part in helping me earn a music scholarship for college. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.

I love taking lessons with John. I'm definitely a weird case for any instructor - I've been playing for 15 years, but I never worked with any teachers on building out my fundamentals correctly. John pinpointed my ability and exactly where I needed to improve. He didn't need a ramp up period - in only one lesson we hit the ground running.

After just a few months of lessons, I've improved enormously and it feels like there's more potential on the horizon. The exercises he gives me are spot on and for the first time I'm really enjoying practicing. Taking lessons with John is the real deal - he's truly transmitting what it means to play and I can see him easily transitioning between players of any ability with patience. I admire him as a musician, and he's also just an awesome guy. Would recommend to anyone.

Farmingdale, NY

View Full Profile
About Jason
I am a professional drummer, recording artist, and educator, with over 26 years performing and teaching.

I graduated from Stony Brook University with a minor is Jazz, and as a founding member of the university's big band, the "SBU Blowage," under the direction of legendary trombonist, Ray Anderson.

Drum students will see immediate positive results from lessons, including improved technical abilities and the confidence to explore new musical pathways on their journey to find their own sound and style.

I teach symphonic snare drum, orchestral percussion, drum set, rudimental percussion, hand percussion with associated NYSSMA requirements.

I have experience with students of all different ages, abilities and experience levels. I've studied percussion and drum set since 1990, and rudimental and hand drums since 1999. I can teach students
to read music, as well as transcribe arrangements and transpose by ear. With consistent lessons, students can learn to play along to their favorite music, and develop confidence to practice and perform with other musicians in a group setting.

As a professional touring and recording artist, I am happy to share my knowledge of playing in multiple musical settings, and the "business" of playing music. My passion is for live performance, and it is essential to help students feel confident while playing for an audience.

Our focus will be on developing proper technique, listening carefully and critically to recordings, and building a foundational music vocabulary via reading and writing.

I look forward to sharing my knowledge and expertise with you!

I have spent the last 9 years playing in various music groups with Jason Turnier. Besides being one of Long Islands best percussionist, he happens to be the most warmest, patient, personable, and fun loving soul I have encountered. Any student would instantly feel comfortable and not only would their musicianship evolve and improve, but their character & self confidence will expand by having be trained by Jason Turnier. Top notch musician, top notch individual.

ATTENTION!
I will be moving back to NYC on August 24th, 2018. I will continue to offer online lessons but my face-to-face lesson location will change. I've updated my address to where my lessons will be in NYC.

I've been studying saxophone for 9 years and have loved every second of it. I'm studying at The New School of Jazz in New York City, but am home for the summer in Washington. I'm really laid back and aim to make lessons as comfortable as possible for you. I want to see you have fun and succeed!

***Lessons***
Over our first few lessons I will assess your ability level and generate a lesson plan tailored to fit your skills and interests. While I specialize in jazz, the focus of the lessons is completely up to you and what you want to learn. I'm capable of teaching instrumental proficiency, sight reading skills (note/rhythm i
dentification), music theory, ear training, and improvisation.
