I started taking weekly electric guitar lessons with Mr. Soukis at his Times Square studio, after watching many videos of him rockin' the blues at various venues in New York City. He is one of those rare teachers who is not only knowledgeable, but also able to share the knowledge with his students in a comfortable and relaxing manner. I have always been afraid of the guitar but the man has cured my guitar phobia. He has made learning the guitar approachable and fun!!

About Robin
I'm a professional musician, songwriter, and singer. I play guitar in 3 bands in NYC, and I occasionally sit in with other bands and artists, too. I have toured and played shows in 11 countries all over the world.

I have been teaching guitar for more than 15 years. I have also worked in theater as a musician and band leader. I have planned and organized numerous music workshops and band classes for children and adults of various skill levels.

I have solid knowledge in (western) popular music, and I am comfortable teaching many different styles of guitar, including various subgenres of pop/rock: folk, blues, funk, country, bluegrass, punk rock, indie, alternative, metal, and more.

I like to teach students their favorite songs, but also help them gain a deeper understanding of music theory through analyzing song structures, chords, sc
ales, arpeggios, etc. I can also help you develop and record your own musical ideas (I use Ableton Live and Logic Pro in my home studio).

Feel free to contact me if you need a friendly and patient teacher with tons of experience!

About Alexander
At my lessons, I use the experience and knowledge that I have acquired from over 10 years of playing and studying music to teach students how to take their playing to the next level and reach their goals.

I attended Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas, TX, and am now one semester shy from graduating from the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, a conservatory in New York City.

I find the best way to learn is in a fun, stress-free environment where the instructor pays close attention to the needs of their students. I believe in cultivating an appreciation for jazz and other styles of music, paying close attention to detail, and building a strong foundation through focused practice.

I've attend Alex lessons since more than 6 months. He has been extremely accomodating with my crazy work-schedule and available to change hour or day even with small advance notice.
During the lessons we have fun and that is what I think is the most important thing!
Alex is really passionate about music and is capable of transmit this passion during his lessons.
I would definitely recommed him as a teacher!

About Alexandra
I received my Bachelors from UMASS Amherst in trumpet performance and music education. While attending I was trained to become an educator for K-12 grades, receiving experience as an elementary and high school assistant. I have taught private lessons for the past 6 years to all age groups. Throughout the years I have learned a lot about various teaching methods, the importance of curriculum, and how to hold a student's interest.

Recently, while attending NYU to receive my Masters in Jazz Performance, I have been teaching Undergraduate non-music major students trumpet and piano. All of these students have varied in musical expertise, interest in artists/genres, and of course personality and learning style. Through this I have gained much experience in how to teach the same concept different ways. Reading music, classical and jazz tongu
ing, phrasing, sight reading, and range are just a few concepts I focus on with students.

As a classical trumpet player, I understand the demands of becoming a soloist or orchestral member through learning the necessary repertoire and technique. As a jazz trumpet player, I am able to teach ear training, how to create lines and understand harmony, as well as the physical demands of range and articulation.

I am also able to teach piano, I have 4 years of classical piano experience. In addition to my personal studies and teaching experiences. I have taught piano to a range of age groups as well (5-25). Based on skill level, I use certain method books to include scales, chords, reading music, rhythm, and basic musicianship skills.

It would be wonderful to have you as my student, to train, work, and grow together as great musicians!

Alex is a great teacher! I took private lessons with Alex through my university for a semester, and I am thankful that I did. She helped me immensely with my form, and I also learned a great deal about jazz and jazz theory that I can use again in the future. I would definitely recommend Alex as a teacher!

I was an older student but beginner trumpet player when I first started taking lessons from Alex. I didn't have much of a musical background but her clear passion about the trumpet, and her enthusiasm, patience and encouragement as a teacher made me a fan of the trumpet as well. Her lessons were varied and tailored to fit my experience level and individual playing style which kept them interesting. By introducing different and creative ways to work on technique Alex continued to make me a better player. I would highly recommend her.

About Timothy
Practice, patience, positivity, perseverance, and progress. These precepts help me to find excellence in my performance as a musician, and they will help you succeed at whatever musical goal you set. I intend to guide you toward success for yourself and help make the hurdles enjoyable. I emphasize listening, developing a strong musical ear, fundamentals, mindfulness, and technique.

I recently finished my music studies at CSU Sacramento where I studied jazz performance, trumpet performance, improvisation, arranging, and theory/composition. I am proud to have held the lead trumpet spot in the top jazz band for the entirety of my career. While my strongest style is jazz, I also have plenty of experience in classical performance, Latin style, musical theater, and pop. My students find success if they want it. I've taught privately for most
of the last ten years and have helped many friends find answers. I am looking forward to helping you achieve your musical goals!

Greetings, future students. I've been teaching piano for 30 years. I'm a professional pianist working mostly in Manhattan's major hotels. I play all styles of music and so I can teach all styles. Classical (I was accepted to the Juilliard Preparatory School at age 12), pop, jazz, blues, Broadway etc. I believe that learning to play the piano should be an enjoyable experience. Just as Sesame Street came up with the concept that learning can be fun, I do the same. Children as well as adults truly like me. This is extremely important. Thank you for reading my profile.

About Kimberly
If you cannot find an available time on my calendar that fits your schedule, please click the "ask Kimberly a question" button above with days and times that work for you.

I am a trained actress in my late 20's. I have experience coaching many professional working actors. I have worked on audition sides for TV (Law & Order, Narcos, Disney, etc), independent films, big budget studio films, web series, off broadway plays, off off broadway plays, monologues, and anything in between with my students! I teach both comedic & dramatic acting and stand up comedy.

I have been trained by exceptional teachers in the following: Linklater (voice), Williamson (movement), film/tv & theater, script analysis, theater & film history, cold reading, monologue, stand-up comedy, etc. I have also been mentored by the legendary standup comedian Rick Crom.


I can also work with the actor on the business aspect of acting, which is very important to your acting career: how can I get the best headshot?, what things should I be doing everyday to reach my acting goals (some may not even be acting!)?, how do I get in front of this specific casting director?, what events/workshops should I be attending?, etc. We can go over all that plus how to get through personal blocks, fear-related patterns, and other things that may be holding you back from being the best artist you can be!

I believe training is so important to a working actor & comedian so congrats on taking the first step towards a successful, exciting career! I can't wait to share my love of acting and comedy with you!

I have a self tape set-up with a backdrop, professional lighting & tripod. I am happy to be your reader & coach as we film your audition, scene or stand up set. We can use this as a tool to improve or film a self tape audition. We can also chose your best take together.

About Deanna
Hey there! I'm very passionate about singing and creating music, and I have been since I was a little girl. I'm a graduate from LaGuardia Performing Arts HS (Fame), where I pursued classical voice, and I am currently a Music Education major at Long Island University Brooklyn. I am studying jazz and I have a passion for Musical Theater and voice over. I am also the Worship Director at my church!

My goal is not only to help my students reach their full potential in vocal quality, but to give them all of the tools and techniques needed to go above and beyond their own expectations. Many times we assume that because someone has so much talent, they are using it properly. That isn't always the case. I am a firm believer in teaching my students how to breathe and use their diaphragm properly, and the results have been a clear, strong, and sus
tained sound with no strain or discomfort! I promise, you will see results after your first lesson with međź’–
