Jorge was a great teacher, he started me off learning clarinet. Very kind, postitve and knew all of his stuff. Would definitely recommend as a teacher.
Holly
Jorge tutored me for a few weeks in music theory and it greatly benefited me. He shows through his examples and explanations that he really understands concepts of music theory and keyboard, as well on his clarinet too. I highly recommend hiring Jorge since he goes over the information at a good pace and nice manor. He will go over whatever you need help on.

Singing for the fun of it!

Have you always wanted to sing but somehow an inner voice said "But you cannot sing"? Well, it's time to challenge that inner voice because it's never too late. Taking a voice lesson is a great tool to break through those invisible barriers and to discover one's voice. Singing for fun is a valid reason to take voice lessons, it would help make singing more enjoyable!

We will cover how to warm-up the voice as well as the mind and the body. You will learn body stretches to get the body ready for singing, proper breathing and support for singing, and of course, you'll learn to sing songs that you want to sing.

A little about me, I have always loved singing but I did not take voice lessons until my late 30's and it changed my life. So I know a thing or two about learning to sing later in life, it can be daunting but it is oh so rewarding! In 2011, I started gigging in San Francisco where I lived for the last 14 years. I am now back living in New York and I'd

Classical guitar in a variety of modern styles is my specialty, though I have experience in repertoire from the Renaissance and onward. I put a lot of importance in tone and dynamic production, as well as conventional technique, in order to coax out every little bit of potential the instrument has in the hands of a capable musician. Welcoming beginner through advanced students.

Cory was an excellent, energetic, and helpful instructor! I was picking up guitar from scratch, and his approach was easy going and approachable. Able to provide insight and information on the greater complexities and intricacies of advanced guitar play while imparting the fundamentals and building blocks to establish a foundation of skills & knowledge.
Mary B.
Cory is an excellent teacher. He is thoughtful and has plenty of patience in his teaching methods. My daughter has progressed an awful lot in such a short time.

I believe that every good singer should be able to communicate well with their fellow musicians. Having a strong ear and the knowledge to be able to recognize what others are playing can really set a singer apart! I incorporate ear training into each voice lesson, striving to make each student the most well-rounded musician they can be.

Brittany has been so sweet and all around amazing and very patient she has been a great first teacher and I’m so glad to have her as my teacher
Sophie
Was skeptical at first but that was quickly turned around. My daughter absolutely loved Brittany and I could see they hit if off from the beginning. The instructor was polite, friendly, very encouraging, and motivating. I was thinking this would be a short term deal for a life experience as a birthday present to my daughter but I see now that I may be in this long term! We're all excited for the next session.
Robert Crabtree
Brittany is absolutely fantastic with my 13 year old daughter who has never had any vocal training before. We are five lesson in, and from day one, you could tell Brittany really knows her stuff. We have seen fantastic progress in such a short time. Brittany's knowledge, patience, enthusiasm, and own personal talent shine through. My daughter looks forward to each and every lesson. We were lucky to find Brittany and I highly recommend her.

Hi there, I'm Dan. I've been playing guitar as my main instrument for 16 years, as well as Bass, Ukulele, Piano, and Vocals. Music is my passion, and I cannot imagine a better way of devoting my time than spreading the gift of this amazing craft.

I've been giving one-on-one musical instruction since 2012, beginning at the Oceanside School of Music and then transitioning to private lessons. I pride myself on the ability to cater each lesson to every student's individual needs, tastes, and goals. Someone once told me, "the goal of the teacher is to make themselves obsolete," and I couldn't agree more. Whether you've never picked up a guitar before or want to perfect your already advanced technique, I'll be here to make sure you achieve your goals and have fun learning.

About Daniel

I am a working performer, singer-songwriter, and guitar player. I currently am the songwriter and frontman of a regularly gigging band and have been leading this project since 2014. I have years of extensive jazz and music theory training on guitar and bass. Hi there, I'm Dan and I hope to

"Andrew really understands the mandolin keyboard and he conveyed the many ways to shape a chord to achieve a nice sound and the variety in playing that could be introduced by altering chord structures/ positions. He stressed improvisational playing around a key signature, the blues or the pentatonic scales. He stressed development of fingering and using them all in exercises to develop strength and speed. he was very responsive to questions and seemed genuinely pleased when we "got" the lesson. It wasn't just a boring reitieration of a practice lead sheet."

Emily is an incredible person, musician, and mentor and is capable of teaching students at all ages and levels. She's acquired a wealth of information through her studies with some of the best teachers in the field. She is dedicated and will ensure that you, as a student, learn how to play the horn correctly and have the best possible experience. I guarantee you will see incredible results upon working with her."
