I resumed voice lessons with Shelley after a 12-year hiatus. I had adopted some bad vocal habits and had lost confidence in myself as a singer.

Shelley has helped me turn all of that around! Because of her professionalism, calm presence, and deep pedagogical knowledge, my range and vocal flexibility have improved immensely. More importantly, Shelley has helped me find my confidence and helped me realize that the vocalist I want to be is within reach.

I would recommend Shelley to anyone who wants to grow as a vocalist!
Marya
Over the years, I've attempted voice lessons a few times and always walked away after a lesson or two. Not this time! Shelley has done the near impossible task of making me feel safe and at ease during our lessons. She is incredibly patient, supportive, warm, and hilarious, too! In addition to helping me with breathing and vocal techniques (which I desperately need, as I'm a beginner!) she also takes the time to nurture my emotional needs as well, as singing has always felt very vulnerable for me. She offers me mantras and writing exercises and is such a great listener. I highly recommend Shelley for any and all students!!
Micah P.
Shelley is a positive, professional, and effective teacher. My lessons with her were outstanding!

Every single lesson was tailored to my voice and my skill level. As I progressed, so did the lessons. Shelley prepared every lesson and conducted them all professionally. Over the course of a couple months, I went from not being able to carry a tune at all to singing comfortably and confidently in different genres.

She was excellent at teaching all aspects of voice including the anatomical structures involved and techniques to use the voice effectively.

She made difficult concepts easy to understand and used simple training tools very effectively. When I struggled in certain areas, she understood what my problem was even if I couldn't explain it well and helped me correct it.

In addition to her effectiveness as a coach, she is just a wonderful person and joy to work with. I plan on taking more lessons from her and I strongly recommend her to anyone!

I highly recommend Nedhal for those who want to have an authentic experience of learning the Arabic language.
Nedhal is very patient and provides a friendly learning experience. You won’t find anyone better in kindness and intellect or materials.
Jacob
Nedhal is fantastic! I am brand-new to learning Arabic and he made the first lesson pain-free. After our first lesson, I can now have a short conversation in Arabic! I can’t wait to continue learning with Nedhal. He makes it easy and fun. I highly recommend Nedhal to students with aspirations of using Arabic for school, business, and philosophy!

My experience with Nedhal was a wonderful experience... He helped me a lot in developing my Arabic language, especially in writing

My goal as an instructor is to keep the lessons fresh, fun, interesting, and to ultimately guide the students to better teach themselves as they gain experience and familiarity with the instrument and music. Students can have their lessons catered to the music and styles they wish to pursue. Lessons are tailored to each individual student so that we can build upon their strengths and focus on lessons to improve weaker areas. Students will learn how to build dexterity, use proper technique, and be creative. Every student has different goals, some really want to learn theory and read music. Others may simply want to learn to strum a few chords. Whatever the goal, I can provide the instructions to help the student succeed!

Mark is so amazing - I almost don't want to tell anyone because I don't want him to become too busy.
Seriously though, he's so helpful. He breaks down complicated equipment & concepts into understandable pieces.
It also is clear that he's passionate about what he does!
Love lessons with Mark!

I bring to teaching piano an unrivalled Juilliard education, international performing and recording career, and 18 years of experience teaching students of various levels. In teaching, I see myself as my students' partner dedicated to helping them realize their full potential as budding musicians and performers. I am encouraging, enthusiastic, patient, and flexible in teaching adults and children of intermediate and advanced levels. I love finding the right individual approach with each of my students, so that they stay motivated and inspired while growing in their musical understanding and mastery.

I strongly believe that a chief tool enabling progress in all aspects of musicianship is focused listening, and see my role as a teacher to guide students in developing power and sensitivity of aural perception through concrete steps and activities. I'm deliberate in selecting and assigning a repertoire that challenges students with appropriate techniques and allows them to ...

About Gabrielius

I am currently accepting new students ages 7 and up. Why settle for piano lessons with a guitarist who also teaches drums and viola? This being NYC, start or continue your piano lessons with an actively performing and recording classical pianist with Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degrees

Lila
Gabrielius is infinitely patient, highly skilled as a teacher and pianist, and has the rare ability to correct while encouraging improvement. I have had 4 lessons with him so far, and already am playing far better than I could have imagined.
I recommend Gabrielius highly to anyone interested in learning to play the piano either for personal pleasure or even performance.
Sarah
Gabrielius is a wonderful piano teacher to our daughter. He is professional, reliable, an amazing musician. We are very happy to have found him on TakeLessons.
Cristian S.
Gabrielius teaches calmly with lots of patience, and the results are fantastic. I've seen tremendous improvement just after a few weeks, and I find his way of teaching focuses on the things that will have the most impact on your playing. He's not a teacher that will drill you endlessly, but will find easier and more organic ways to learn and love the pieces you play. I'm excited to continue my lessons, and I'm falling more and more in love with playing, practicing, learning and listening to piano.

"Maria is not your average piano teacher. She does not merely teach you to play the piano--she teaches you to feel the music, to really experience it and, most importantly, to enjoy it. As an advanced adult student, I went through a few different teachers before finally finding Maria. I am so glad I did! She is taking my playing to a whole new level and going over my technique with a fine-toothed comb. I cannot recommend her enough!!"

Now I am playing live gigs with my own band and writing my own music. I just recently started singing lessons. I have my first one coming up on Wednesday.
