Classes with Arron have been really helpful. I think if you have classes with him, you're getting a great value. It seems very important to him that I understand what he's been teaching and that we complete the planned amount of work for each lesson.
Not only that, but he has even been kind enough to extend his teaching beyond the virtual classroom by answering questions that I've had between classes through messages. It is so helpful to have someone who knows what he's talking about to answer the tough questions that are too hard to find the answers to with Google.

I really appreciate your teaching. Thank you, teacher Arron.

Lothair is an amazing singing teacher! He is kind, dedicated, patient, and extremely talented. I am a beginner and after 5 lessons, I already feel more confident with my singing. He thoroughly explains various vocal exercises and will answer any question you have with a smile :). As a bonus he is also an actor! You will not be dissapointed if you take lessons with Lothair.

He's my first teacher - I have never learned singing elsewhere before. He says I learn fast, but the truth is that he knows how to give the best exercises and advice to make the student realise one's full potential. Practising while following the advice he pointed out during the lesson, I suddenly found myself near 3-octave range within the first couple of lessons, and now we are working on rounding the tone and make it into a beautiful singing voice. On top of it, he's also very funny and approachable.

Taylor Is such an amazing teacher. He is incredibly detailed and is always very helpful when I am in need of guidance. The vibe that he gives off is so kind and wonderful. I always have a great time talking with him. He is definitely someone that you should get to know and will be missing out if you don't. Overall, he's one of the best teachers I've ever had.

Taylor was the music teacher at CAP and Plaza De La Raza's Theatre collaboration in 2014 and I was one of the students who was lucky enough to work with him. I helped with sound effects and he always helped us stay in order and be creative while doing it. One of my fondest memories of being Taylor's student was when I was an understudy for a singing part in the production. It was a piece higher than I had ever confidently sang before, so I was nervous. All the days leading up to the performance he rehearsed with me and helped me hit the notes and be confident. I was still completely nervous when the show came along and Taylor was so helpful and calming, and definitely real. He got me to talk myself up and be confident and that is what made the performance so fun in the end. When looking for a vocal teacher, you always want someone who will make you comfortable and also be honest with you, Taylor is both of those things and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Emily Carlstrom is a total badass. I've taken a handful of voice lessons with her. They were so simple, yet so extremely helpful and motivating. She really knows how to listen and that makes her a great friend, artist and teacher.

Mr. Marino is by far the greatest, and most talented instrumental instructor I have ever had. The amount of patience and passion he has for this art is resonate in his teaching style. I had the absolute pleasure of working with him for 6 years and I can truly say I have learned a wealth of information and have become incredibly skilled at multiple instruments thanks to Mr. Marino.

About Stephen
I am a classically trained saxophonist, bass vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist. I have experience arranging music of all styles for bands, orchestra, percussion ensembles, and a cappella groups. I was the saxophonist for The High Lifes, a ska-punk band out of Orlando, FL; played tenor and baritone saxophone in my university's wind ensemble, saxophone quartet, jazz band, and orchestra; have founded and led four a cappella groups at the collegiate and semi-professional levels; and am a bass section leader in the New York City Bar Choir. I have taught public school band, chorus, orchestra, piano, and music technology classes and was an elementary school music teacher in Orlando, FL before moving to New York in 2012.

My private saxophone students have gone on to study at the college level, have been members of the Florida All-State band, a
nd earned Superior ratings at state music festivals. I have also taught private flute, clarinet, and bassoon lessons.

In addition to music performance classes, I have experiencing teaching music theory and arranging. If you would like to learn about the magic behind music, I'm your guy!

If you're interested in ensemble lessons, we can negotiate group package discounts. I've found that music is best when shared and learning to perform quality musical literature with other, like-minded musicians is one of the most rewarding experiences in life.

Our first lesson will be an assessment of your past musical experience and your future goals. From there, I determine the path we should take. No two students are the same, and I feel that our lessons should be tailored towards the interests and passions of the student, whether that be classical, jazz, pop, composing, or anything else. I will work to make sure each student is aware of what they need to do to succeed and do my best to be available outside of lesson times to answer any questions they have along the way.
