About Bill
Bill is multi-instrumentalist, jazz musician, composer, arranger and educator. He developed a strong connection to music early in life through some family tradition, encouraging parents and many inspiring and influential teachers. He has gone on to perform alongside a number of noteworthy artists and ensembles and has toured extensively overseas and throughout North America.

His love for music came to life though performances with several ensembles in public school, regional big bands and his own jazz saxophone quartet. He is a graduate of the Purchase College Conservatory of Music's Jazz Studies program and has recently become a graduate of New Jersey City University's M.M. Multiple Woodwind Performance program.

Following two years performing abroad on cruise ships and the national tour of Young Frankenstein: The Musical, he was dr
awn back to New York City. Performing regularly on piccolo, flute, alto flute, clarinet, bass clarinet and all saxophones, he is proving to be valued asset in the NYC music scene.

Bill performs regularly with his group, Bill Todd and the Sixth Generation, while also working as a Broadway pit musician, a sideman and a private music teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is unique, therefore, lessons are designed to fit the student individually. My teaching style is molded to satisfy each students wants and needs. I also like to focus on developing proper playing habits. I see it as my job to help my students understand and develop the proper techniques to eliminate bad habits in order for them to be the best they can be on their instrument. Lessons are about having fun making music, learning, and improving.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Chairs, music stands and keyboard for harmonic discussions.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to bring their own music notebook and their own instrument. They may also need to purchase their own lesson books when the time comes.

*** Specialties ***
I can help my students learn how to play in a variety of styles ranging from classical (solos, chamber music, etudes, etc.) to jazz (improvisation, harmony, etc.). Whether they're working on a song to play at school, a NYSSMA or All County solo, or just learning for fun, I will help them play to the best of their ability.

What I learn on first Contact for Flute Lesson.

Correct posture will reduce pain in your arms and wrists because the weight of the flute is not resting on the shoulders. By correctly aligning the flute with your head and neck, pain in the arms will be reduced.
The position of the flutist’s head is closely related to the neck position. If your head is properly balanced on your neck, then you will be able to bring your arms effortlessly up to your flute without pain. If your neck tenses, your spine will tense up as well. In particular, playing softly tends to cause tension in the neck, because it takes more concentration to play with food tone softly

Y, and is a Conn-Selmer artist.

*** Lesson Details ***
In addition to the fundamentals (Tone, Rhythm, Technique, Ear-Training, Sight-Reading), I also like to tie-in music theory, composition, and improvisation along the way. I believe in setting short-term, mid-term, and long-term goals that are specific to the student and their needs and wants. I also believe in the benefit of having the student bring in songs or materials that they are interested in, and designing lessons around their interests. I am patient, creative, and willing to move at any pace that is right for you.

Through my experience as an educator I understand that every student is different, and therefore, my job is to guide and facilitate learning, while making the process as enjoyable as possible! My approach is customized to bring out your strengths and interests, while also ensuring that you have a solid foundation on your instrument. In addition, I am professionally trained in both jazz & classical music, and I perform regularly with working bands of all types and genres.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room w/ drum set, piano, guitars, clarinet, sax, flute, amps, seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students are expected to have an instrument, and eventually selected method-books which will be decided upon for each student based on their needs, goals, or level.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all levels of students, from beginner to professional levels of all ages.

Skills and teaching techniques vary specifically per individual, but may include saxophone technique (technical facility, tone, scales, overtones), improvisation (jazz as well as other styles), sight reading, music theory, ear training, transcription, composition, and repertoire development in all styles of music (jazz, classical, pop, funk, world, etc.)

Lynn; I love your personality and your teaching method. I got a lot out of that lesson.
And, by the time I'm 75 which is in about 5 months and with your guidance I'll be able to play a tune or two. I got a good teacher. Looking forward too lesson Number 2.

I've worked with Lynn for going on three years now and she has without a doubt been one of the most talented and most enjoyable people to make music with that I've ever encountered. Not only does she rock the sax better than most, she's extremely humble and approaches music with an openness and extremely positive energy. I give her my highest recommendation as a great teacher, and a great human being.

As an educator, Matt is different from other teachers in his ability to inspire and motivate. Learning to play and master an instrument is challenging and can be a very frustrating experience. Matthew has techniques proven student after student to be successful in overcoming learning obstacles so that the student is able to meet his/her individualized goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are provided in a private studio in Astoria, NY or your home. Once, a location is established I work with each student to identify his or her goals and objectives both musically and personally. Students are assessed to determine where their individual ability is at the time of assessment. From there, I work in partnership with the student as we begin mastering the guitar or the piano in a fun and supportive environment. Whether you are interested in learning to play the blues, classical or jazz guitar or any other genre or just learning how to play songs on the piano, I can help. If you are a beginner, don't worry it won't all be scales. In fact I guarantee you will be playing a song within your first lesson. If you are an advanced or intermediate student, I can help you master your skills. We (you and I) will revisit proper right and left hand techniques; utilize exercises to improve your speed and accuracy. You will learn new methods to strengthen your improvisation abilities. In short, you and I will make sure to build on your strengths and undo any bad habits that are hindering your ability to grow as a guitarist or pianist.

*** Specialties ***
music, Guitar and Piano
I begin with meeting the student where they are in relation to their musical experience. After establishing trust, through encouragement I empower students to recognize their potential with out pre-determined expectations or limits. I am comfortable in various genres from classical to punk.

About Joel
Music, and piano playing, has been a lifelong passion for me. I've been playing piano since I was 5 years old, and I've been teaching piano for over a decade, in 3 different countries to children and adults of all ages and abilities. I have taught privately, at music schools and at prestigious conservatories, including Juilliard.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Piano from Canada, a Master's Degree from the Guildhall School in London, UK, and a Doctoral Degree from the Juilliard School. I currently teach university students at SUNY Binghamton in upstate NY.

Since I am classically trained, classical music is my specialty, but I can teach jazz and contemporary repertoire as well. You will be hard pressed to find a more experienced and highly-trained pianist!

Music and learning music should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience, an
d it's my mission to make sure this happens in my studio. I want to pass on the joy music has given me!

I am able to teach in my own studio, or travel to your home provided it is reasonable distance. Looking forward to hearing from you!

I love animals and my hobbies are hiking in the mountains including in snow and ice, camping, building things and work on my own car when I can. Most of my students stay with me for
8-10 yrs. and handle themselves very well in all ensembles. They play to earn scholarships for college as well and play for life. Happy Playing!

iI've been taking classes with Rafael Leal for six months. During these six months there has been a lot of progress with the knowledge of music theory and my drums skills. There are a lot of music teachers out there, but Rafael's combination of knowledge and skills can not only craft you into a great drummer, but a great musician as well!I highly recommend you contact Rafael leal and pursue taking your music education to a new level.

About Haley
Thank you so much for taking the time to look through my profile! When I teach lessons I like to take the time to get to know my students and the way that they learn individually. Because everybody learns in a slightly different way no two lessons will be taught exactly the same. However, there are some basics that I like to bring up with everybody which are:

1 - How do you easily and confidently read music?

2- What are some good techniques for practicing on your own?

3- How are you producing the sound that comes out?

4- What is the emotion behind each note that you sing?

5- Have fun!

On that note, here is a little bit about myself. I've been studying voice for 16 years under the direction of some amazing voice teachers. I have recently traveled to Italy and worked intensely for two months with some of the worlds
greatest singers and coaches on Italian operatic scenes, arias, and art songs. Another fun fact or two about myself, I worked for Walt Disney World Entertainment for 3 months for the Disney College Program after my first year of college. Also, in the summer of 2013 I sang in the choir for The Rolling Stones 50 and Counting Tour in the song "You Can't Always Get What You Want." It was the experience of a lifetime!

I hope that we can have a great and productive time learning to sing together! Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions you may have!

***To Bring To Lessons***
Any music you would specifically like to work on
Pencil
Something to record your lesson with (any phone recorder works perfectly)

***For Younger Students***
I do have a book of almost any Disney song you could ever want to sing that we can work through
I would recommend a 30min lesson for anyone younger than 13.

***For Parents***
Feel free to stay during lessons

***My Specialties***
I am trained and have performance experience in opera, however, I also have performance experience in jazz and musical theater. I am not trained in the latter two, however, if you do have questions about them feel free to bring a piece to look at.

She brought confidence in my singing that I never really had, all while being the sweetest person in the world. She definately knows what she's doing, and is very good at finding what's best for her students. Her best interest is always there for her students and their wellbeing.

My personal philosophy of music is to explore and learn as much from my students as I can teach them. For me teaching is like going on an adventure to find something together. I've been able to play all over the world and tour with many different musicians and the thing that made the core of every great performance was the human interaction and communication. For me music is about being more human. This is something I just as much try to impart and teach in my lessons as theory and technique.

About Lex
Music has been a daily part of my life since getting a drum set at 12 years old. By age 16 I began to realize that I would need to learn more instruments than just the drum set to satisfy my musical appetite. Since then I have spent countless hours learning the piano, bass, and guitar. I also studied many other members of the percussion family, such as the marimba, vibraphone, timpani, bendir, riq, mbira and djembe. Just as I love music from every variety of instrument, I love music from every variety of genre and culture.
As a teacher I try to pass my love of learning music of all types on to my students. My goal is for every student that comes through the doors of my teaching studio to not only improve technically, but more so to have the way that they listen to music be transformed. My musical philosophy is that the musician with
the most receptive ears is more valuable than the musician with the musician with the most virtuosic technique.
Since moving to New York in November, 2016, I have performed as a drummer at many staple New York venues, such as The Bitter End, Feinstein’s 59 Below, the Metropolitan room, Silent Barn, Baby’s All Right, Pianos, Arlene’s Grocery, Silvana’s, and Brooklyn Bazaar. I am the drummer for three bands, Poppies, Smoke and Sugar, and King Jane, all active in different parts of New York’s multi-faceted music scene. I have also been active as an instructor, teaching drums, percussion, guitar, piano, bass, and vocals out of Guitar Center Brooklyn since January of 2017.
