Fay is an amazing teacher that gives her student's the ability to progress and I can't even begin to describe how much I've improved because of her help.
Kevin
An amazing teacher that helps you progress as a performer. Piano has been such a fun instrument to play and amazing considering the techniques taught by her! Her lessons are so fun as well as educational.
Kevin
Fay is such an amazing teacher! I got into Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School thanks to her. Best Teacher I've had, she helps train your voice and goes through the vocal anatomy so you understand techniques such as proper breathing, posture, coordination, grounding, acting, diction...etc. I've been her student for about a year three years now and I have to say that my voice has improved so much as a performer all thanks to her! If you get the chance, at least take a class, you will not regret it!

Many people think playing acoustic guitar is the same as playing the electric. While this isn't completely untrue, there are subtle differences that are key to mastering either or both. When we sit down to work on building our skills on an acoustic guitar, we'd go at a pace comfortable for you, and you'll be playing like a pro in no time.

I feel lucky we found Dave! My son who is 11 yo was having a hard time with his other piano teacher. Dave is patient, friendly and encouraging. What I really love is that Dave notices where my son is having a problem and comes up with exercises to work on that issue!

Dave is a great teacher and has helped me for 2 years whenever I have a problem he takes time out of the lesson to help me on a specific instruction. He pushes me to do better but we still go at a place we’re I am comfortable.

Rainice has helped me grow tremendously as a musician and develop a greater appreciation for percussion. I've studied with her for two years now and she is always super welcoming and positive in her approach. Rainice has helped me organize my audition preparation, overcome various technical issues I was having--especially on auxiliary percussion and marimba, and develop a better ear which has been particularly helpful for playing in orchestral settings. She has also given me lots of helpful advice based on her experiences in the field. Highly recommend!

Mark was very patient yet informative. He pointed out areas to improve upon and complemented me where I had been working hard. I was comfortable with his online lesson because he looked me straight in the eyes as though we were face to face. I know he will teach me how to play my mandolin; so looking forward to the next lesson!
Kristen
Mark has been a great teacher for this adult beginner! I take lessons in clawhammer banjo and ukulele with him, and his easy-going nature and skill in identifying ways to improve make it a joyful experience! Highly recommend.

Mr. Sylvester is one of the greatest. He is not just an amazing guitarist, but he is also very kind. He treats people with so much respect. He speaks to me and my mom so nicely. He is very patient. He has a deep knowledge of music and knows how to get the most out of even the least talented people (like me!). He doesn't ever get mad if you make a mistake or forget to bring your music notes. We were so lucky to find Mr. Sylvester.

"Best teacher of all

Our daughter has been taking piano lessons from Fawn for 3 years now. We are so amazed how patient she always is with her, and how far our girl has come. She has far surpassed her classmates who started at the same time with other teachers. We couldn’t be happier to have chosen Fawn. We are impressed with how Fawn changes and grows along with our daughter. She began when she was 5 years old and now she is 8, reading and playing high level classical pieces. As a piano player myself, I've seen and gone through many different teachers, which is why I am confident to say that Fawn is definitely the best teacher of all and we are so lucky to have her!"

"My son started to play saxophone a few years ago and he really liked it up until this year. Not a lot was happening with band lessons online this year hence no progress and no motivation. I reached out to Michael with the only goal in mind: to spark the passion to play saxophone for my 12y.o. son again. We've already had a bit over 10 lessons and my son loves his lessons. I can see really good progress but most importantly he wants to play. It's not a chore for him any more. It's actually fun and he enjoys it. Now we can build on that. Michael has great attitude and communicates with kids very well. He definitely has a passion for music and it translates to kids."
