Alaina A. New York, NY

About Alaina

I currently play trombone with the West Point Concert Band and am also an active freelance trombonist and euphoniumist in the New York, tri-state area. On any given day I could be performing various genres of music including orchestral, jazz, chamber, rock, funk and hip-hop/R&B. My career has led me to perform with various ensembles in prestigious halls around the country such as Carnegie Hall, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA. Working as a musician has also given me the opportunity to travel the world as a performer. Most recently I went on tour throughout China with the Manhattan Symphonie this past December. In addition to my career as a performer, I am an active educator. I teach private lessons as well as conducting master classes for groups in schools. In the past past

I had never held a trombone in my hands before I started taking lessons with Alaina, but just after 3 one-hour lessons I can already play some simple tunes, which makes me very happy.

Alaina is very humble, sweet and, what's most important - very clear with instructions.

I highly recommend her as a teacher.

Bonnie is a wonderful flute Teacher!

Bonnie has been teaching daughters, who are 8 and 10, for almost a year. She teaches them with warmth, patience and enthusiasm, and understands their respective levels. My girls have progressed beautifully, and Bonnie has even integrated lovely flute duets into the lessons which the girls can practice and perform together. We are extremely pleased with our lesson experience.
Thank you, Bonnie!

Bonnie is a wonderful and patient teacher

I started playing the flute when I was eleven, and I can’t imagine my past seven years without weekly lessons with Bonita Lubinsky at Third Street Music School. Music has always played a big role in my life, and Bonnie was the person who helped shape that general passion into a specific love for the flute and showed me how to become a thoughtful, dedicated musician. Her unlimited reserves of patience allowed her to work wonderfully well with all age groups, from her younger students just starting to play to me, a high school student with a few years of experience. Bonnie is incredibly kind and compassionate, and knows just how to drill a skill without it feeling like a chore. Because of her tutelage, I have made the decision to pursue the flute in college, and I am thankful for her abilities and for what she passed on to me every time I practice.

Great teacher

I have been taking lesson with Bonnie for 3 years now and am very happy. She explains things well and in different ways when necessary to get it understood.

She makes it fun to learn the flute.
Andrew S. Long Island City, NY

About Andrew

I've been studying music for 10 years now. Having come to music later in life than most, I find that I am more empathetic to the perspective of the beginning student than many teachers. I spent the Summer of 2009 teaching music fundamentals to groups of severely physically and mentally disabled children of all ages. Since then I've completed my Bachelors degree in Music, taught privately and with several established music schools. To me, music is above all about transformation. Beautiful sound transforms our experience of the environment, and learning an instrument can help students approach life as one big instrument they need to practice to master. Learning to play an instrument is also an experience of training one’s nervous system to gradually act and ...

Excellent, knowledgeable, patient teacher

Andrew is an excellent teacher. He is a patient listener and has a gentle style. Andrew is knowledgeable in music theory and uses creative ways to explain musical concepts. He gives a lot of encouragement and praise. I have learned so much from Andrew and I always look forward to our sessions together. I highly recommend him.

Already seeing progress

I've only had 3 or 4 lessons with Andrew, but already I'm seeing progress. Andrew is always on time and sometimes stays later to finish the lesson thoroughly. He teaches in terms of what my goals are and leads me in the direction I need to go. He is supportive and above all else he is very patient, especially since I have dyslexia and learning music theory is not an easy thing for me to do. Taking lessons with Andrew is always fun, and he reminds me NOT to compare myself to where I want to be. Learning with him has been stress-free and productive. I look forward to future progress. :)

Excellent guitar teacher. Patient. Flexible. Knowledgeable.

Even in the first lesson, Andrew got me to freshen up my basic guitar skills. He gave me excellent points on learning chords and helping me to play songs I needed to for solo performances. I look forward to taking my lessons and getting better and I'm sure I will with his help. Highly recommend giving Andrew a try.

Professional & Patient Vocal Coach!

I have been working with Ms.Genie for the past few months and I must say I have grown and learned so much in this short time. I am not as trained or accomplished vocally as her other students so I most especially appreciate her encouraging, yet firm approach to my training. I like being driven to go further and dig deeper.

I have so far to go but my willingness to learn, coupled with her willingness to teach; will surely help me to attain my goals as a singer.

Whether you need someone to help you polish your already well trained vocals or need someone to help foster the glimmer of talent you have, Ms. Genie is the instructor for you!
Gio A. New York, NY

About Gio

I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums. I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others. *** Lesson Details *** I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into ...

Great, creative teacher

Gio has a great way of thinking outside the box and teaching my daughter each week. He uses creative methods to engage her and help her relate to the material and provides easy instructions for practicing during the week. He is patient and easy going which allows for her not to feel overwhelmed as she's just learning the guitar. I'm very happy with how he's teaching her!
Emil V. Bronx, NY

About Emil

I started to study the piano at the age of seven with Hrant Minassian in my hometown of Island Park, New York. During high school I continued my studies with Jack Chaikin , a graduate of the Juilliard School. I attended Hofstra University where I received a B.A. in Music in 1979. At Hofstra, my piano teachers were Blanche Abram and Morton Estrin. After graduating from Hofstra, I moved into Manhattan and continued my piano studies with Elena Wolkonsky at the Juilliard School. I also took a few lessons from Adam Aleksander, concert pianist, in Miami. So all together, I took lessons for 20 years with six different teachers! I started teaching piano when I was 18 years old and taught all throughout college. After enjoying a successful career in data processing for 22 years, I ...

I started learning from Emil three years ago. He makes learning the piano fun while still being educational. What started out as an interest in piano has grown to a passion because of Emil's guidance. I highly recommend you try. You will never find another teacher like him!
