My experience as an electric guitar student of Justin's is nothing short of perfect for what I was looking for. Justin has a great studio with everything you'd need and is very focused on ensuring he's helping me learn what I want, not some standard, boring, antiquated way of teaching. He's got a TON of accomplishments under his belt (music and otherwise, he is also an actor!) from which to draw experience from and share with students. Very professional, personable and contemporary - IMO a perfect teacher and I'd recommend him to anyone looking for lessons!
Saujan
Justin is an excellent vocal and music teacher overall, he's a friendly person and is very professional.

Highly recommend him!
Saujan
Justin is an awesomely cool person and a very skilled instructor. His singing techniques and practices not only work but also challenge you to do better each day.
Inside a fully functional studio, there’s just so much learning you can do.
Highly recommend!

George explained things very simply.
Alexander J.
George, was very patient, kind, and seem very knowledgeable. He seems to understand the pedagogy of teaching to kids and realize they all learn differently. I personally think he went above and beyond for my Son first class and for our first introduction. He offered a more modern approach method of teaching music and Piano to my son who so far seem more receptive in learning and practicing. Will se where that take us but I am very please so far.
Tracie S.
George is totally passionate about teaching. He encourages the kids to practice and do their best. He has great knowledge and understanding of music theory. He is pleasant, easy going and works really well with kids. Overall really good teacher. Recommend!

Dylan is an excellent teacher and an amazing drummer. He is down-to-earth and makes you feel comfortable immediately. He's also very organized regarding scheduling, and his lesson plans are flexible and productive. His teaching style is detail oriented and he explains well. He does not hesitate to correct my child and still encourages her to play better. Dylan is very enthusiastic about drumming and makes lessons a joy to take.

I am so glad we found him as soon as we came to NYC!

Online Drum Teacher

I was fortunate enough to study with some great teachers during my life and that experience thaught me how to create a method of learning that I first applied to myself and then to my students. Learning is a process that requires time and I personally believe that this process must be enjoyed. I found that the best way that makes this possible is learning through music first, getting to understand and internalize the fundamentals of your instrument (drums in this case) by playing together with the music you like. That is the first step that allows the student to go deeper in the knowledge of drumming while having fun.

I've been teaching professionally since 2018. While I was a master student at the conservatory of Purchase College, I was asked to teach drum lessons to college students who weren't enrolled in the music program but wanted to take music lessons as a minor. Since then I've been teaching privately and as a drum instructor for a music school in Manhattan called Music ...
