1st Lesson

My 1st lesson with Jason was very relaxed & professional. I learned more in 45 minutes than the last 5 months on my own in regards to reading music, rhythm, timing and playing the notes on the staff. He is very patient and knowledgeable. His diversity in music provides an understanding of where you are at and where you want to go with music. I look forward to my next lesson with Jason.

Working with Joseph was a delight! He provided his services as an accompanist for a Christmas music video I was recording.

He was always punctual when arriving to rehearsals, scheduling rehearsals was a breeze, even with our packed schedules, and he was always prepared for each rehearsal with copies of the music I'd provided, as well as notes he'd gained by working through the music prior to the rehearsal.

He had a pleasant demeanor, and plenty of creative ideas for any places in the song that allowed for improvisation or personalization of the chords or phrasing. His accompaniment was the perfect companion to my singing, and could range many genres of music.

I also worked with him as the pianist in larger bands performing in the NYC area, and there as well, he was great to work with. Highly recommended! :)

About George
I've been lucky enough to have achieved my dream of performing on Broadway and I love sharing what I've learned over my twenty year career. Singing is a natural expression of who we are, no matter our "talent" or skill level. It's not mysterious or scary if you know how to direct your energies and coordinate your thoughts, your breath, and your voice. It should always be fun, a true expression of your individuality. The greatest singers in the world don't sound like anyone else. They sound like THEMSELVES! I'll maximize the beauty, expression, and ease of your sound, whether you're a beginner or have a final callback for a Broadway show.

About Connor
Hello! My name is Connor and I am a professional drummer, percussionist, composer, and educator living in Brooklyn, NY. I have a BA in Jazz Studies from the New School for Performing Arts in New York City.

I play many styles of music all over the US and internationally, ranging from Jazz, Rock, Folk, Hip Hop, Bluegrass, electronic, and contemporary classical music! I can relate my knowledge of playing all of these styles to you, and we can dive in to any area of drumming & music that you'd like!

With most of my students, we cover technique and fundamentals (rudiments, warm ups, building stamina), learning different grooves and styles on the drums, and then get into an area of the students personal interest, like learning songs, improvisation, soloing, etc.

I am very patient and flexible, and work with each student to serve their
unique needs, and of course, we have a ton of fun! No matter what your experience level is, I guarantee that you will be learning and growing every week as we build your relationship with the drums.

About Josh
Josh began studying piano at age 16, an age generally considered late for a new piano student. Almost immediately, his teachers found that he had a natural ability to play the instrument at a high level. Tereza Lee, at the time a graduate piano student at the Manhattan School of Music, was Josh’s primary piano teacher and mentor, and helped him prepare for college, university and conservatory auditions. At age 18, after playing the piano for only two years, Josh received offers of admission from six conservatory programs to study piano performance, most notably from the Manhattan School of Music and Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

Josh chose to attend Carnegie Mellon, where in 2009 he was one of only three piano students to gain admission to the University’s School of Music. That same year, Josh became a Hadar Scholar, receiv
ing financial support from the Richard and Mica Hadar Foundation to pursue his undergraduate music studies.

Josh graduated from Carnegie Mellon with University and College Honors. He also received a merit scholarship to study with pianist Sandra Shen at the Brevard Music Center in Brevard, N.C., where he studied for three summers, and performed solo and collaborative piano repertoire. While there, he studied further with Indiana University Jacobs School of Music professor, pianist Norman Krieger. Josh’s teachers at Carnegie Mellon were Sergey Schepkin and Ralph Zitterbart.

Josh is currently on the faculty a school for Music and Art in Manhattan, where he teaches piano, and his private studio in West Orange, N.J, where, in addition to piano, he uses music as therapy to help students with disabilities.

Josh also offers private piano lessons. Josh reaches students in New York City, and Essex and Passaic Counties in New Jersey.

We have found Josh to be very thoughtful and patient. He spends time to build the concepts rather than rushing through lessons. We are quite satisfied and would recommend his classes.

Josh is a great instructor for our daughter. He puts a tremendous amount of thought into presenting his lessons in a way she can learn and absorb them.

We have seen how learning music has had such a positive impact on her life, beyond the technical skills of playing the piano and we attribute that to Josh's patience and flexibility.

As a colleague of Josh's I've found him to be uncommonly thoughtful towards his students and about the content and direction of his lessons. He is exceptionally prepared, incisive and intelligent, a fine musician and educator, and an easy person to recommend without hesitation. I'm confident any student will gain invaluable insight under his tutelage.

I'm a young, enthusiastic and experienced teacher sharing my love of music with others! My teaching style is unique to every student's needs. My lessons are very structured and the weekly goals and expectations are always clear. It's also important to me that the student has a parent/guardian that is involved in the student's musical journey, to encourage and listen and (maybe) play along!
My students will explore more than one genre of music and also will have a strong technical foundation.
