Nicole is a very patient,caring and understanding teacher. She recognizes the student's strong points while working to correct and strengthen the student's weaker points. All this is done with a smiling and cheerful disposition.I am very lucky to have found Nicole as a piano teacher for my 8 year old granddaughter. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a talented yet patient and caring teacher.

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 stude
nts 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 respond in new ways, and that kind of persistent, focused, training is applicable to any new skill.
Last and definitely not least, playing music is fun.

*** Lesson Details ***

I plan my lessons around getting students to enjoy playing music as soon as possible, whether that means learning how to strum a chord rhythmically, playing their favorite song, or how to take a blues solo.
There are steps that have to be climbed to do more complex things and I encourage students to practice a little every day rather than for a long time once or twice a week. Developing a love of music and steady practice habits are more beneficial over the long term than practicing until your limit.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I currently have a living room space where I can teach, but it's small so it might be preferable to travel to you.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If necessary I can provide amplification, cables, and a microphone.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Folk, Blues, Rock, Hip-hop, Funk, Reggae.

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.

About Claire

I'm a professional singer and a passionate teacher of voice and beginning piano. I have been singing since I was five, and studying voice since age 14, going on to complete a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Voice Performance.
The classical technique I teach gives my students the tools to sing in a variety of styles, whether opera, broadway, pop, or rock.

I also teach beginning piano for both children and adults, as well as ear training and musicianship.

Everyone can make music. Even if you think you can't carry a tune, come learn with me!

Claire has been my daughter's piano teacher for two years and she's excellent!
Her knowledge and patience with kids make the lessons interesting and fun. I can see improvements week after week, not only in music-playing but also in my daughter's confidence. Claire is instilling a passion for music that I hope my daughter will keep forever.

Michael is a fantastic teacher! He helped me work on my Cleopatra among other great characters. He is focused, knowledgeable, passionate and has a profound manner in making the text accessible-current and personal. I used to have difficulty relating to a piece, the language intimidated me. Michael helped me to make the text my own, coming from my own heart. It changed how I worked on everything, both classical and modern.
