We will start on fundamentals of letter structure, color theory and composition. I will introduce the tools and how to properly implement visual effects and techniques using those tools onto the students desired media of choice.

We will progress from the basics of drawing techniques all the way to painting on larger canvas and possibly walls.

Paint and supplies must be made available by the student.

Great! Loved it! A high-level teacher, extremely knowledgeable and accomplished. This will certainly challenge me as a beginner.
John
I was a beginner wanting to learn some Brazilian guitar: samba, bossa nova, etc. Billy was great for that as a very accomplished guitarist of that genre. He is very engaging and enthusiastic. He was patient with me in working on the difficult chords and strumming that this type of music requires. Having literally, "written the book", he had an organized approach. I also enjoyed his humor and occasional stories about guitarist he has know. Acho que ele tem Jeito para ensinar violao.

Mary is very kind, friendly, understanding, and polite. She is extremely encouraging, and believes in her students! It is usually very hard for me to push past my limits, but with Mary I felt much more confident to do so! But she knows when to tell you to stop. She is very clear, and I learned a lot from her.

Hello there! My name is Lauren, and I'm an NYC-based violinist with over 15 years of experience teaching violin. I earned my BM and MM degrees from Eastman School of Music in Violin Performance and perform regularly at venues such as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center.

As a teacher, I adapt my teaching methods on the spot to introduce and reinforce concepts in a patient, enthusiastic, and creative manner tailored to each student. In addition to equipping my students with proper violin technique, students are empowered and develop their communication skills and confidence while fostering a lasting curiosity for learning and a genuine love for the imaginative and expressive capabilities of music.

Lessons generally focus on four major areas: scales, etudes, ensemble parts (orchestra and chamber music), and solo repertoire. Music theory and ear-training activities supplement work in these areas. A portion of lesson time is also devoted to preparing students for ...

About Lauren

In addition to my teaching, I maintain an international career as a performer. I've performed at festivals such as Venice Biennale, Acht Brücken, Newport Jazz, Beijing Modern Music Festival, and Lincoln Center. I've worked with artists and composers such as Ambrose Akinmusire, Richard Carrick, C

FANTASTIC TEACHER! Lauren taught me for 2 years as an adult beginner and I could not have asked for a better experience She is so patient, kind and encouraging. During our time I believe I made tremendous progress with her instruction even though halfway though we had to switch to remote lessons because of Covid. Phenomenal person and gifted teacher!!
Sia
Thank you Ms. Lauren for helping me grow as a violinist. You made the lesson so enjoyable and I found the notes that you made for me so helpful for my weekly practice. I wasn't sure how online lessons would be during the pandemic, but you made it so easy to follow along the lesson over Zoom and shared notes over the screen which made it so much easier to learn. Thank you for helping me practice for my audition pieces for which I got accepted for 2 different orchestras. You were always very positive and so patient throughout and taught me fun tricks and ways to make my weekly practice better. Thank you!

Lauren has been an amazing teacher and mentor. Her teaching technique and talent has made a huge difference in my teenage daughter's musical journey.

"Prajakta is probably one of the most dynamic professors
that I have had the privilege of knowing! Her ability to convey to me the Hindi language in a manner that I do not feel intimated means a great deal. As a matter of fact, her sense of humor allows me to make mistakes, recover, and have the confidence to learn more of the language. I will, no doubt, continue with my learning experience.
