Great Teacher!

I really enjoyed the lessons I had with Cynthia; not only did she make playing the flute fun, but she really helped me get a better grasp on some techniques that I was having a little bit of trouble with!

Not only is she a great and understanding teacher, she is a fantastic musician; two of the most important things I believe you need in a private instructor.

Super talented - Great Personality - Excellent Teacher

I could not think of a better teacher to teach my beginning, intermediate or advanced flutist. Cynthia is truly an amazingly talented musician and just as kind and nurturing of a teacher. I give her my highest recommendation!

On Pitch

I am a Deacon in the Catholic church and I am over 70 years old. At my church, my pastor expects me to sing at the Easter services. I am known for not being able to sing anywhere near on any key. I would sing in the key of "R". Last year I took all three choirs off key for their responses. In addition, my past efforts, included taking a person playing a guitar off key. Jacob evaluated me and said that I had the capability to sing on pitch. So I began the lessions 2 months ago. I was very pleased with my resluts this Easter. Many people noticed a great improvement in my singing and the choirs were able to respond on key!! I have a great deal more confidence in my singing capabilities. I can testify that Jacob did get me to sing on pitch with excelent results. Thank you Jacob and I will continue with the lessons improving on my capability for next Easter.

"To whom it may concern”

This is a recommendation in support of Mr. Kerry K. I have known Mr. Kerry K. since July 2007, when he was a participant in my week long Creative Music Making Institute at the Eastman School of Music 2007 Summer Session.

I observed Mr. Kerry K.’s performances as a percussionist in the 2007 workshops and gala concert, and I found his performances to be excellent - musical and with a clear sense of commitment. In my opinion Mr. Kerry K. has the motivation necessary to achieve success, both in his studies and in percussion performance.

I have been fortunate to observe percussion students at all levels worldwide during many years of teaching and performing with the percussion quintet, NEXUS, and as the Principal Percussionist of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. Based on that experience I am delighted to give Kerry my recommendation.

Sincerely,
William L. Cahn
