IMPORTANT - REGARDING MY AVAILABILITY PLEASE NOTE:

The availability listed on the calendar is NOT my FULL availability. Because I am a full-time teacher AND performer, my schedule flexes throughout the year and the hours listed are a limited window of what I may actually have for you. I am very flexible and try to accommodate everyone. Depending on the time of year, I usually have night hours on two days a week and teach on many Saturday mornings / afternoons as well. Click on the 'Ask George F. A Question' button on the right if you have any questions about availability or be sure to ask your TakeLessons rep about the schedule as you go option when you set up lessons for the first time so we can find a time that works for both of our schedules.

My teaching method is very practical and customized to every individual. I do not believe that you can use the same style with every student because everyone learns differently.

Fantastic first lesson, really looking forward to learning more. George is a great guy and great teacher, I feel like I'm in great hands.
Sam J Ottobre
First lesson was impressive. George is clearly fluent in the language of music. He was able to identify problems with my singing (which were not exactly what I thought they were)and give me solutions for them. He explained this to me in terms I understood. The hour with him was the most targeted constructive time I’ve had in my journey to become a singer.For lesson one, you can’t ask for more than that.

George is a personable, knowledgeable, and gifted teacher. He can tailor the lessons to fit anyone's needs.

Tom is an excellent music teacher. He has been teaching our granddaughter classical guitar and we have been very pleased. I taught instrumental and vocal music in the public schools. I also taught strings at the Arts School .
He is well educated in the music field and has had so much performing experience so he has a very well rounded background, I think you would be very pleased
to study with Tom.

I have had a terrific experience working with Tom. Playing guitar for nearly 20 years, I was looking for advanced instruction and coaching. Focusing specifically on Jazz, Tom has helped me elevate my playing ability and understanding of the art form. Tom is a professional musician that has an ability to connect with his students of all ages and levels. I highly recommend working with Tom.

Private Music Theory Teacher

Music theory should just be a part of learning how to play the piano. Learning music is like learning a new language. Music theory explains everything from how to read music to harmony, chords, rhythm, melody and much, much more. As you advance it helps you to understand all types of music and why it sounds the way it does.

About Nancy

Playing the piano and loving music has been at the center of my life. Aside from the happiness and fun it can bring, learning an instrument also teaches discipline and confidence which carry over into everything. I enjoy teaching both children and adults. As I teacher I am patient and encour

Jake is a fantastic teacher. He is enthusiastic about the subject matter, and is excited to see you progress and grow as a player. He tailors the lessons to your goals and is pretty much game for whatever you want to focus on.

Since Mandolin is his focus as a musician, he has practical experience and knowledge on the instrument that helps us learn theory in a relatable fashion and has endless tips and tricks to help you grow.

Highly recommended!

"Jillian's really smart and nice

I started taking lessons with Jillian around when i started high school a couple years ago. I play french horn in school, and I'm considering studying music in college, so I definitely needed to know more music theory. I play guitar too, so we started studying songwriting, too, so that I can write some songs with my band. Jillian's so nice, and really smart, so she makes it really easy to learn! I really like classes with her."

"I have been taking theory/harmony lessons with Mr. Joseph Nikita for 4 years now and couldn't be any more satisfied with his teaching style.
Mr. Nikita takes the complex concepts of music harmony and breaks them down to the point where they become easy to understand, retain, and apply to my homework and compositions.
One thing I much admire in Mr. Nikita's teaching is the variability in his explanations. I don't prefer learning in a lecture-style environment (where the teacher lectures and the student takes notes), so Mr. Nikita takes each topic and explains it in multiple ways - using real-life applications and examples. This helps me obtain a clear understanding of each lesson - making it easy to go in depth in music harmony."

"The lessons (piano & music theory) I learned from Buzz Amato was the sole reason I got signed to a label & was able to produce 2 Billboard charted singles (which he co-produced with me). I now tour the world djing and produce with talented artists that come to me based off my musical knowledge, that I received from Buzz. I can honestly say NONE of this would happen without the musical instruction of Buzz. Thank you Buzz!"

"I play in a rock band that wanted to add some Sinatra type jazz songs to our repertoire. I was tasked to play bass with which I had very little experience. I decided to take some lessons with Gary to learn a little jazz theory and technique. He was a wonderful teacher. He focused in on exactly what I needed quickly and pointed me toward resources that I could use to improve. Despite my limited abilities, Gary was always patient and displayed good humor. When I needed him to write a bass line for me quickly so that I could take it on vacation, he made the time to make sure that I had what I needed. I enjoyed our lessons and recommend him highly. Gary is a teacher who truly cares about his students."
