Adam is a great teacher. My daughter really enjoys going which is great when your only 11years old. Adam is wonderful at explaining to my daughter why she has to do the exercises and how everything will affect her singing voice. So much more then I expected.

About Dominic

Dominic M., America’s Tenor, has been singing in one form or another since the age of four. As a young man, Dominic began honing his skills of singing and acting through Community Theater. His voice and career were forever changed when vocal coach and mentor, Suzanne Ferris-Hammer introduced him to the great voice of Mario Lanza. From the moment Dominic heard the voice of Mario Lanza, he began to fashion his own voice in that image. Dominic continued to expand his career by developing his own show, which includes the songs of Mario Lanza in their original keys. These shows were held in some of the finest NYC Cabarets such as Don’t Tell Mama, Duplex Café, Danny’s Skylight Café, Café 44, and Eighty Eights. He has also performed these shows at The New Palace of the Performing Arts of New

Great learning experience

I took flute lessons from Hilary at NYU after several years of not playing at all. I was rusty and had accumulated quite a few bad habits, from poor posture to improper breathing. Starting out, part of my difficulty was in forgetting these habits and starting anew. Not only was Hilary very patient with me, but she also taught useful techniques along the way.

I also had a weak foundation in basic music theory, and Hilary's review lessons were incredibly helpful -- I found myself looking at sheet music and playing scales with a completely different mindset. I can honestly say that I improved significantly (and now I even find myself checking my posture when I'm not playing!). After having taken such a long break, I wasn't sure whether I'd want to start playing again. Hilary's lessons and supportive attitude helped renew my interest and for that I'll always be grateful!

Hilary is an amazing teacher

Hilary is an amazing teacher with a ton of knowledge about flute performance. During my time with her, my playing and musicality improved drastically. She has a lot of flute-playing metaphors up her sleeve that make it easy to understand more complicated techniques.

I would absolutely recommend her as a teacher.

As fun as she is professional!

I took flute lessons with Hilary during my senior year at NYU. I had never played flute before in my life, but I had gotten one as a gift and decided I might as well try and learn. I was very lucky to have chosen Hilary as my teacher!

I had taken music lessons in varying instruments every single semester while at NYU, and Hilary was easily the most memorable and enjoyable teacher I had. While most of my music teachers made our lessons seem like another class, Hilary's passion, excitement, and humor made learning the flute a fun adventure that I looked forward to each week.

In our first lesson, she was able to show me exercises and techniques that got me further in my flute playing than months of trying to teach myself online. In just a few weeks, I knew more than I was expecting to by the end of the whole semester, and I was rewarded by being able to play short but beautiful flute music.

If there was ever a time when I was having trouble with a particular concept or technique, Hilary was always able to either clarify it for me, or explain it in an alternate way until I got it. If I ever had any questions - and I had a lot of them - she was always able to answer them.

I not only learned a lot about the flute, but I had fun while doing it, which for me is the best way to learn an instrument. If you are considering taking flute lessons, I highly recommend you take them with Hilary!

About Bob

Here's a little about my guitar career.... I'm a studio session guitarist and also do shows and concerts. Was lucky enough to have won a few guitar contests including Guitar Player International's "Ultimate Guitar Competition" for acoustic guitar. Won a bunch of awards for producing as well. I've performed and recorded with 1000's of Artists.. some not so famous and some very famous like Johnny Cash, David Grisman, Travis Tritt (long list). I've been signed and produced for Major Record Labels including Atlantic, Universal, Mercury, Sony, and more. To let you know, when I was a kid I was kicked out of music lessons by a few teachers that said I would never amount to anything. I had trouble reading notes (still do) and wanted to do my own thing. Instead of traditional lessons, ...

About Inbal

Hello. my name is Inbal and I am very happy to introduce my self, hoping we get the chance to work together. I am a musician. For many years I teach piano and music theory. I enjoy it very much:) I love to share my knowledge. Like the Sages said, the good teacher is he who studies from his students, so I always try to learn something from my students. I've graduated the high academy for music in Jerusalem in 2010. I've also graduated MA in musicology at the Hebrew university in 2012. Beside playing classic music I love to improvise and sing, accompany myself and jam with other musicians. My approach to teaching piano is that the piano is first of all the student's friend, and not just an instrument we try to master. From my experience, I find that every student is special and

My son started learning piano with Inbal in June this year. Since then he progressed to learning how to recognize notes, playing simple songs and even composing his own songs. I like to see my active 7-year old actually sitting down and engaging in musical activity. I have to agree with the other reviewers that Inbal is very nice teacher and very patient with children. I highly recommend Inbal to anybody interested in taking piano lessons.

Inbal came to our home to teach our 7 and 9 year old boys. She was always reliable, consistent and very patient. She is so nice and perfect for teaching children. She sought out piano songs they would enjoy learning. Inbal would also send them video clips from the internet to engage them in interesting songs and expose them to multiple instruments. She's a gem.

Over the past 2 months, I’ve found Jimmy to be a phenomenal teacher. While I’ve spent my whole life experimenting with my voice, what I’ve learned in these past months has completely transformed both how I understand singing and my voice itself. No doubt, I still have a long way to go, but over this short period of time, I really cannot believe how much Jimmy has already helped me tap into a fullness and range I never thought my voice had.

I think what’s best about Jimmy is he fully understands what it takes to become a good singer, and how to fully find one’s singing voice. I will admit, the exercises Jimmy has you perform seem a bit odd at first, but it’s all part of the learning process to understand the mechanics of how to sing properly. Like all things worthwhile, results don’t happen overnight (although a couple months isn’t too shabby), but I can promise that if you study with Jimmy, you will have a teacher who has walked the path, knows it backwards and forwards, and will be able to help train you to sing fuller, healthier, and typically with more range. Furthermore, Jimmy tailors your lessons to your genre of choice!

Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

Jimmy is a great instructor. He takes you seriously no matter what you skill or knowledge level is. When I started with Jimmy I could play guitar but generally only Cowboy chords.

Jim was patient, he analyzed how I played , what I knew and he tailored lessons around what I knew. That way I got the most out of my time and money spent. I can go on and on about Jimmy but for you sake I'll just say that I highly recommend him
