I am a professional actress/singer who has been easing back into performing as my children grow more independent. I am rusty vocally due to recent successful vocal cord surgery. Michael is the ultimate professional - patient, knowledgeable, and kind. I am thrilled that I found him and look forward to my next lesson.

As a choir conductor and church musician, I encountered all kinds vocal challenges from classical style to contemporary one. I'm very happy that Dr. Douglas is able to answer every question I brought to him. His experience and knowledge directly helped me toward my own breakthrough in vocal performance. I highly recommend Dr. Michael Douglas!

Was very impressed with Peter's methods, demeanor, patience with my 9 year-old daughter, who is a beginner at piano. She had some experience at reading music, and Peter was adept at recognizing this and 'pushing the envelope' a bit with her and she responded enthusiastically. She left every lesson with a smile on her face.

Craig's Patience and Knowledge

Craig is very knowledgeable and patient. I am an older student (64) who started lessons at age 4 and then my playing became sporadic, sometimes not playing for weeks at a time. Craig has been focusing on open chords and using the Jazz repertoire to put concepts into practice. I tend to be a little hard on myself and Craig has helped me with that, too. His suggestion of working on songs two measures at at time has been very helpful

Great teacher!

Craig is an excellent teacher and a very nice, person. He teaches piano to three of us and easily adjusts his lessons for each of our competency levels. His instructions are easy to follow and his suggestions for mastering skills work. Our lessons are friendly and low pressure. I would highly recommend Craig.

Zachary H.

Stony Brook, NY

About Zachary

I believe teaching is a partnership between the teacher and the student. I am a friendly, laid-back person, I’m very patient, and I’m 100% there for my students, so you or your child can enjoy a comfortable, welcoming learning environment. To make great music, all I ask in return is an open attitude and a commitment to appropriate amounts of regular practice. With those things, almost anything is possible! My teaching philosophy is totally centered around your individual needs. I understand that people approach the study of music at various ages, with different abilities, goals, and desires. I see my role as a teacher as one where I use my knowledge and experience to help you along your path. Once we establish your goals, then I can teach you what you need to know to get there.

A great teacher

Zach was a great teacher! He picked things that would clearly help me grow as a player, and gain greater facility on the instrument. We had a couple snafus scheduling where I might wait for 10+ minutes for a lesson to start.

He is an awesome teacher!

Zach is a very hard working, well-qualified, talented, and dynamic musician. He ensures that his students get quality education they deserve. He is passionate about music and makes students fall in love with music! I have not seen any situation where he did not have proper answers whenever I asked questions regarding class materials, homework, or even music in general. Also, he shows enormously great patience to make everyone feel comfortable. He maintains a positive approach to students and learning, a professional attitude, and a supportive environment for students. Also, he maximizes amount of time available for instruction. He is one of the best teachers I've ever had!

Cynthia is an amazing teacher! My daughter has only had three lessons so far, but she is learning so much and is still excited to learn more. Cynthia makes her work while not expecting more than what my child is capable of. She's very patient and makes the lessons easy to understand. She is also pretty flexible with her schedule (as much as possible) and will try to work with you if something comes up. My daughter will definitely continue her lessons with Cynthia.

I have played a number of gigs with Cynthia, and as a colleague I can say she has an incredible amount of both professionalism and proficiency in her field. Her piano and violin skills are something that you do not find much in the music education scene anymore. She is a rare find, and I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a dedicated and talented teacher to go with Cynthia.
