Eric is the best when it comes to learning how to sing, He tries different techniques with you until you show improvement, and makes sure you yourself know why your doing those techniques and how they help you improve and he doesn't let you leave without learning something new in every lesson, taking classes with him, you can guarantee your voice will improve better with every new lesson and he's an awesome guy to talk too

I only have had one lesson with Eric but plenty of interactions. He has been incredibly flexible trying to coordinate lessons with my busy schedule and is really relaxed while teaching. It was easy to be comfortable singing, which I think is an important quality for a singing teacher to have. Thanks a lot Eric! :)

About Marco

I started playing guitar seriously at the age of 12 and have been a guitar teacher for 22 years. My first influences were rock and metal. In my later teens, I became very interested in other music genres such as jazz, fusion and classical. I began my formal music education as a Classical Guitar performance major, ultimately obtaining a Masters Degree in Music Composition from the Queens College Aaron Copland School of Music. The road I have taken with music has been paved with many unexpected twists and turns. Throughout my many years of learning and making new discoveries, I have now arrived at a point where I am able to productively incorporate knowledge from various experiences with music and education into my own creativity and teaching. I never expect to stop learning or ...

Marco is one of the best teacher ever, I knew him way back in 1997 when I first came in to the state. At first, one of my friend was taking the session and he didn't mind me just staying and observed. After a few classes, I decided to go with Marco. As a new immigrant, language barrier is a problem. He 's patiently teach me from a to z. Making sure I understand everything. Although, I knew some of the basic of the guitar. I was surprisingly I could learn how to read music. Be able to improvise with him during lesson. You're not just learning how to play song/guitar. You learn music theory all in a packet. I still remember one day I was playing in the local shop in HK, people was whispering this guy is good. This is a good memory that I have until now.

I was a student of Marco's for about two-almost three years, and his excitement, love, desire, wisdom and passion for music and teaching is something that can't be described in words. Marco is a teacher that likes to have fun with whatever it is he may be teaching, but he is also very serious about it to make sure his students learn what they want in the best way possible to them. He will encourage his students if they need it and congratulate you every time you complete whatever it is you may have learned from him. I mostly learned techniques/songs from artist's such as Randy Rhoads, Angus Young, and much more from Marco. He will not let you down. He won't give up on you. I would gladly learn from him any time /any chance I'd get.

Marco has been teaching my son how to play the guitar since 2008. I feel that we were blessed having Marco as my son's first teacher. He really understood him and I was brought to tears at his very first recital when I was amazed how much he had learned in just a short few months. He is a senior in HS now and he has a love for the guitar and a passion to learn new music on his own.
Marco is an exceptional teacher who is very patient and understands his students and listens to their needs. He is extremely talented and anyone would be very lucky to have him as their music instructor. I recommend him highly. He is the best!
Michael F. Astoria, NY

I use my own practical method from my experiences to teach proper technique to finely sculpt the detail of the sound, rhythm to teach good timing, and groove to give my students the mature bass sound you would hear in a session bassist.

I teach these elements in a fun way through classic and popular music, to make the journey of becoming a better musician exciting.

I teach this all in conjunction with music theory to make my students the most versatile and well rounded musicians they can be.

About Michael

Born in New York City, Michael was exposed to a wide variety of cultures and music and has began performing at a very early age. He went to the well known (Fame school) La Guardia Arts High School, and got his Bachelor's degree in Music from SUNY Purchase. *** Lesson Details *** Michael teaches all skill levels. He teaches his students how to practice in a way that's fun and exciting for them. Within the first few lessons he gets his students thinking differently about their instrument and guarantees you will progress quickly. Michael caters to what the individual student needs, and depending on what their goals are and what they want to learn he will set up a specific curriculum for that student. He teaches drawing from his real world experience as a frequent live ...

I consider myself an intermediate bass player. Learning with Alex has increased my knowledge of the fret board and he knows and plays various styles of music. Which is what I need to increase my vocabulary. He is patient, laid back, fun and a great teacher. He will take the time to make sure you understand what you are playing, give homework, and positive feedback. The only negative thing is that I can't practice in person and all day with Alex. He by far is the best teacher I have ever had. And your crazy if you don't learn alot with this guy!

Isaac J. New York, NY

In 10 years of teaching the bass guitar, I've guided students from their first encounter with the instrument through professional performance and college study. I love teaching the bass because playing the bass ties together so many fundamental elements of music in every genre.

While I have a degree in Jazz Performance on the double bass from NYU, I have performed on the electric bass professionally in many styles from jazz to rock, soul, funk, merengue, and everything in between. Studying the bass with me can be as focused or as broad as needed for each student. I enjoy all of my lessons, learning each and every baseline on Sgt Pepper's, focusing on reading skills and music theory, or improvising walking bass lines over jazz standards. I always focus on the goals of my students and how best to build a true understanding of the instrument, it's role in an ensemble, and the tradition of the music.

About Isaac

Cited by All About Jazz as a musician with "all the groovy elasticity necessary to encompass the melodic complexity of compositions," Isaac is a strong voice among a new generation of musicians. Discovering a love for the piano, guitar, and bass in his youth, Isaac began performing in coffee shops and jazz clubs at the age of 15, quickly becoming one of the most sought-after young musicians in Westchester County. While still in high school, Isaac had the opportunity to study with jazz legend John Patitucci. Isaac's selection for New York's prestigious All-State Festival came as no surprise. Isaac graduated from New York University's undergraduate jazz program in 2009, where he studied with many seminal jazz musicians including Ari Hoenig, George Garzone, Kenny Werner, Jean-Michel ...

About Indigo

I've been working professionally in music since my teens, when I landed my first job, singing in a Pepsi commercial for national TV. Since then I have branched out, becoming an accomplished guitarist, songwriter and composer. I have had the good fortune to perform, record and tour with some exceptional people: Yoko Ono, Jolie Holland, Jeffery Lewis and Marc Ribot, just to name a few, as well as touring the United States and Europe many times, and writing and recording music for film and television. Music is a great and magical realm, and I get great satisfaction from helping other's gain access to it's mysteries. *** Lesson Details *** You can expect lessons with me to be fun and challenging. Lessons are custom tailored for each student, and each student's program will be ...

I love my lessons with Indigo ! She makes you feel extremely comfortable and she is great at finding what you are interested in learning and tailoring the lesson to you. Each week I feel like I have a better understanding of the guitar and music and all the practice tips she gives are extremely helpful. I have only been taking lessons for a few months and I feel like they have had such a major impact on my improvement. I have learned so much more about music theory and it has been such a wonderful investment taking these lessons with her. I would absolutely recommend taking lessons with Indigo !
