Hi! Welcome to my TakeLessons page, where I provide information about my background and teaching services.

I am an experienced performing artist and teacher that works in New York and regionally. My piano and voice students include children, working professionals, performing artists, and seniors. I attended Barnard College, Columbia University, and Maggie Flanigan's acting conservatory program. My training at Columbia University and with private instructors focused on classical repertoire and theory, but I also work with students on popular music (i.e.Pop, R&B, Electronica, and Folk). Music theory (i.e. sight reading, chord progressions) and practices from Linklater, Alexander, Williamson movement, and Art of Practicing techniques are incorporated into my music instruction.

30 minute-lessons are available for children aged 5-6 only while 60-minute lessons are available for students above the age of 6. Prospective students may sign up to take a trial lesson with me at first to ...

Nikole, is very warm and professional. I have never continued with voice lessons, I enjoyed the experience so much that I'm going to kick the bad habit of smoking and sit down and seriously figure my finances out to continue being taught by her. I cannot express enough how much fun I had...no pressure Nikole if you read this...lol

Linda has such a wonderful approach to teaching that I find truly refreshing! Such an incredibly patient person who has a wealth of knowledge of Opera and Musical Theatre! I've been singing for 5 plus years but Linda really opened up my possibilities and my confidence.
Luis
I am a college student majoring in sound studies who wants to go into musical theatre. Linda is kind, patient, and KNOWLEDGEABLE teacher that helped me with problems that I was having with my technique. She helped me bring my singing to the next level. I can’t help, but recommend her to everyone looking to better their singing no matter the level you’re at. At first a bit skeptical about lessons online with my internet, but after taking lessons with her I realized there was nothing to worry about when you’re learning with Linda!!

Kristie taught my son harp for 1.5 years before he left for college. He absolutely loved Kristie. She is patient, and makes the lessons interesting and engaging. She allows students to choose from a selection of music so that they learn how to play something they like. She encourages experimentation and engagement. My son wanted to learn the harp because it was interesting, not because he wanted to be a world class performer. Kristie really got that and made the lessons something he looked forward to every week. And she herself was a world class performer so if that's what you're looking for in a teacher, she can deliver that to. Kristie is a super teacher; my son still keeps in touch with her and says lessons with Kristie were one of the highlights of high school.
Derek
I was nervous walking into my first piano lesson, as I was COMPLETELY out of my element, though I knew that I had a passion to start learning. Kristie made me feel at home and reassured me that this was normal. She is extremely informative, and not only teaches you what you need to know, but explains WHY things are the way they are- which further developed my love for the music. Also, I have noticed that she is good at knowing where to start. She saw that I was picking it up quickly, so advanced quickly to challenge me more. Loved every lesson so far, and look forward to the future ones as well!!!!
Christina P.
We've had the best first time lessons experience with Kristie. She is knowledgeable, patient and extremely flexible. I especially appreciate the way she is able to reign in my seven year old's often wandering attention span. I look forward to continuing to work with Kristie in the future.

There is absolutely no greater joy than experiencing a student playing their first song! This is why I have dedicated my teaching to beginner's. Whether a 5 year old child, or an 80 year old senior, music allows expression of the soul. I left an engineering job, to begin fulfilling my passion to releasing music within others. My lessons are structured, but fun! I strongly believe in praise for results, not condemnation for mistakes. The student will be guaranteed a pleasant half hour, learning the rudiments and techniques of the piano.

About Fabio

I am blessed with a wonderful combination! I love music AND people! Teaching music requires a love for humanity, with patience. It is not uncommon for the student to feel frustration, at times, during the lesson. I calmly remind them that we are learning in life. Frustration is understandable, but

I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!

So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!

He has a very patient and custom approach to teaching which I appreciated greatly.

"Well rounded teacher

Fawn is very engaging as a teacher. She has a wide range of abilities, that range from piano, to singing, to songwriting.

As a music producer i was looking to brush up on my songwriting and piano. Her unique ability to interchange all of the above skills has been invaluable.

I definitely recommend Fawn as a teacher ."

I signed up for voice lessons, and she has been teaching me to read music and play the piano because it all ties together. She is also getting me to a point of independence so that I can practice at home with ease. I just love how peaceful and non-judge-mental she is... I have learned lots and I am very happy I found her :)!"

"I have a self taught singer for a long time until I found Andrew on take lessons and I couldn't be more glad that I did. Andrew came off as warm as a person but also talented and all rounded as a musician. He isn't grounded to teaching broadway or theater but approaches singing in a wholesome and interesting manner. Although we have only been working for a little over a month now Andrew has always been very supportive since day and I'm slowly starting to learn how to like how my voice sounds. Andrew would make sure my voice is properly warmed up at the beginning of every single lesson and his lessons tackle/pinpoint exactly what needed to be worked on in regard to my strengths/weaknesses. Also, I've never had any problems on scheduling with Andrew. He'd always find time for his students and try to make it work for whoever has a busy a schedule. Andrew is an amazing singer who has total control of his voice and would floor you with the things that he can do with his instrument and he's even better as a teacher who doesn't mind sharing his knowledge with you. He has total control of his instrument and isn't afraid to share his knowledge with you. If you're looking to improve yourself as a pop/rock/rnb or just about anything, Andrew would be a great choice for you."

For months now, the Billboard chart has looked pretty similar each week, with Adele perched at the #1 spot with her hit album 21. Adele has maintained that spot for 18 weeks now,  needing only 3 more weeks to pass previous records made by the Bodyguard soundtrack and Elvis Presley's Blue Hawaii. With an accomplishment like this, we don't see her leaving the spotlight for some time. As a singer, you've no doubt heard about the importance of proper breathing.  In fact, deep breathing can he …
