Excellent job and I am looking forward to my son having more lessons
Adeline
We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!

Whether you are a beginner inspired to record your own music for the first time, or you've been recording for years but just can't seem to make further progress on your own...I've got you covered!

I can help you to grow in your understanding of the recording process. For instance...what are the different types of microphones and how should they be used? How should different instruments be recorded? How do DAW's (Digital Audio Workstations) work? What is the best way to use plugins for EQ, compression, reverb, and the like? How to mix a song? These kinds of issues and much more will be covered in our music recording lessons.

I have been both recording music and teaching for over 20 years. I care deeply about helping students reach their goals on the instrument, and I never cease to be amazed at the beauty and creativity involved in making music.

My background in a nutshell: I have a degree in music with a focus on percussion and composition from a major university, I've studied ...

As an intermediate drummer, Jesse's lessons were a perfect fit for me! I've been with him for about two years now. He's an experienced and skilled musician, but more importantly he's patient, motivating, and overall just a great teacher. I always feel like I'm getting my money's worth when going to his lessons. My skill level and enjoyment level of drumming have dramatically increased since beginning studying with him. I have no plans to quit taking lessons with Jesse anytime soon!
Thorson
Jesse is a great drums instructor and musical mentor. He has a great set-up for teaching drums online, and a cozy home studio in Morningside Heights if you prefer in person instruction. His hourly rate is the best deal you'll find on Manhattan. I previously paid $150-200 per hour for college instruction, and Jesse's teaching is as good or better than any college instructors. He is clear, friendly, patient, and able to cater instruction to both the ability and aspirations of his students.
Peter
Jesse is a true professional, a technician, and an artist. And he yearns to see his students level up. I love his taste in music! I wish I could receive his tutelage more often.

You will learn the basics of recording from setting up your project and devices, to creating tracks (software and audio), and how to operate your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). You will also learn how to use plugins, and the fundamental effects used on tracks (EQ, compression, reverb, delay) and other 3rd party plugins (Waves, Kontakt). Understanding how to edit tracks, gain stage, and get a wide and deep stereo image will also be crucial, and you will learn how to mix and master your songs to get it sounding as professional as possible.

I have a studio dedicated to recording, and is there perfect environment to learn how to record music. I have a drum kit, keyboards, microphones, and guitars we can use to practice recording audio, and many software programs to record software instruments.

My 10 year old wanted to learn how to play the electric guitar. We found Kory through take lessons and hes happy we did. He has made good progress in the time hes been going. We will keep going back for more lessons. He really enjoys the lessons.
Saul Hernandez
If you are looking to learn how to play guitar, look no further. Kory is an excellent teacher and takes his time showing you how to break down complex skills. He is super patient I’ll tell you that forsure. Im a very slow learner and it really sucks but Kory reassured me that everyone has different paces and we shouldnt compare them. Ive definitely improved a lot with just 10 sessions.

Kori's awesome! Learned so much in the first lesson. Looking forward to continuing!

Trevor is an exceptional teacher. He is very knowledgeable in all aspect of guitar theory, instruction and tailors his lessons to student’s goals. He is extremely patient and paces his lessons to maximize the student’s development. I highly recommend Trevor as an instructor for all levels of students interested in guitar instruction.

"Albino - I just wanted to say thanks again so much for everything you did for me, I'm having so much fun recording. I just finished up my first track and was able to include guitars, bass, piano, drum and vocals, I can't believe how quickly you taught me all of this stuff. This is a huge improvement from where I was a few months ago. Thank you again!!!"

"Andrea is a great musician. But a great musician doesn't make a great teacher. He's both. Really.
He is a wonderful producer. So, if you are interested not just in learning guitar, but in recording too, he is able to make your sound shine, and teach you how to do it.
I play both piano and guitar, and he helped me a lot to understand the mechanism inside those instruments with theory and musical touch."
