Noga S.

My teaching style really depends on who the student is. I am always happy to work together towards what the student wants to be able to play while supporting that with helpful and relevant exercise.
I am able to teach theory, technique, reading music, improvisation, playing scales and stuff like that but I am also happy helping people learn specific songs they want to play and working on groove, time and sound.

Noga is a kind, patient, sensitive teacher with a deep understanding of musical theory and technique and a warm, encouraging and professional sensibility. Not just a great teacher but also a punctual, communicative scheduler. She's just wonderful to deal wit. 10 out of 10 would recommend!
David C
Noga is a great teacher!!! Always prepared and really knowledgeable. Totally recommended!
Nick C
Noga is all-around the best musical instructor I have ever had. What makes her lessons special is her passion for teaching and for music. She motivated me to challenge myself on the bass both through her creative exercises and supportive charisma. On top of that, Noga is a true master of the bass guitar. She has an immediately recognizable groove that you can hear whenever she plays, and her skill is incredibly wide-ranging. Our lessons have touched on driving rock, jazz walking bass, and ambient soundscapes to name a few, and she is very open to delve into new musical territory together if you have any questions on how to achieve a certain sound. Every lesson with her will have a great impact on your playing.

Tyler is an excellent instructor.
Karen
My daughter enjoyed learning clarinet with Tyler. As another reviewer has noted, Tyler is a gentle and patient teacher. My daughter could be difficult during lessons and often got distracted, and Tyler was great at steering her back on track and engaging her through new music and exercises.
Katrin
Tyler was the piano teacher for our two daughters for almost 5 years. They were piano beginners aged 4 and 6 when we started. My daughters are more on the shy side, and Tyler ended up being the perfect teacher for them. He is gentle and patient but at the same time got them excited about learning the instrument and playing music of different genres. My daughters enjoyed the lessons very much and they were sad to see Tyler leave for New York. I can highly recommend Tyler as a teacher especially for shy beginners like my daughters were.

"Amazing musical experience!

Rachelle taught me for around a total of a two years. Throughout my time with her my musical horizons were vastly broadened. From general Piano/music theory to singing with proper use of diaphragm, her instruction was thorough, intense, and sincere. She always had a way of making me feel very comfortable with myself and helped me to achieve a greater sense of confidence in my musical abilities.

Overall I would recommend Rachelle to ANYONE in any field of music. She has the skills, experience and knowledge that anyone would benefit from, and I feel very blessed for the time I had learning from her!"

Robin is a dynamic teacher who connects well with her, as I believe she would with most children and youth. Robin has been helping my daughter in her musicianship and exploration of the clarinet. They work on pieces for both the school band and my daughter's personal interest. Lessons are enjoyable and Robin is a skilled, reliable and encouraging teacher. We feel fortunate to have found her."

What is Timbre in Music and the Voice? Why is it Important?

What is timbre? Timbre in music is also identified as “color.” It is the quality and tone of a sound which makes it unique. Timbre is also defined as auditory senses produced by a sound wave. In other words, it refers to a sound’s characteristics that help you distinguish it from any other sound.
