Excellent Teacher and Guitarist!

Tony has been a great instructor; he is a very knowledgeable and skilled guitarist with so much passion that is very infectious! He really gives me the motivation to try harder until I get it! He is very patient and tries to understand how I learn and what I want to learn and customizes the lesson to my learning ability. It's not easy teaching me, but some how he figures it out! Tony thanks for all your time, effort and genuine care in teaching me the guitar and being the jump start for a lifetime of guitar playing!

About Michelle

I believe that everyone can sing, it is just a matter of learning how to use your unique instrument. From a very young age I was sharing my love of the arts with others as a performer. I grew up with an immense appreciation for all forms of art and found music to be the ideal way to express myself. My extensive education and performance experience has allowed me to cultivate my skills and knowledge so that I can best support each student on their own unique journey of cultivating their authentic singing voice. As a teacher I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to support students both in my studio and through online lessons, providing the positive and supportive guidance and experiences they need in order to cultivate their own musical gifts. *** Lesson Details *** My intention for ...

About Ray

Hello! My name is Ray - I'm 26 years old, born in Queens NY. I studied classical music for many years as a youngster at Aaron Copeland School of Music college preparatory program. Here I was also introduced to Jazz, and around the same time began experimenting with synthesizers. I went on to study Electronic Production & Design at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and quickly became a very sought after studio musician and performer. I've been successfully teaching many instruments and proficiency levels for over 12 years now. I can say with pride that it is my passion, and I anticipate teaching being a very important part of the rest of my life. I enjoy reading science, math, and philosophy, and in addition to teaching am currently working as a pop music producer. *** ...

Classical Guitar

When I started taking lessons from Ray I was playing the electric guitar, although I had a classical guitar in my house I did not play it that often. I took my classical guitar once to class and then I started to learn how to play the classical guitar. I went from playing basic peaces of music to playing Minuet in G in a short time. From playing electric guitar about 3 or 4 years to playing classical music in about 1.5 to 2 years. Ray has helped me to increase my knowledge of music.

I started my musical career at the age of 2, on the piano, shortly afterwards moving to the violin, and most recently, the viola. Earning the music scholarship at school for best classical musician, and later on the scholarship for best orchestral instrumentalist at the world renowned music conservatoire WAAPA (West Australia Academy of Performing Arts).

I had a few lessons with another teacher on violin. I came across to James because the other teacher wasn't really working out and I was having trouble understanding. James really walked me through each step of the way so well. He has great patience that really helped me relax and learn so much faster. It has been a great experience.

After playing saxophone for the last few years I wanted to learn the basics of piano. The piano has always been one of my favorite instruments. James made it so much easier than I could have ever imagined. I thought it would have taken a lot longer to get the basics down but within no time at all I was already playing songs that I love. He really broke it down step by step making it easy for me to know exactly what I needed to practice to get me where I wanted to be. I highly recommend James as a teacher, he is friendly and fun to work with. I always look forward to my lessons each week.

About Daniel

I've been teaching for almost 20 years. In that time I've had students of all ages, abilities and personalities. From the casual student to the aspiring professional, I tailor my approach and focus on meeting the unique needs and goals of the student rather than applying a contrived method or curriculum. I've had a thorough conservatory training at The Eastman School of Music and Interlochen Arts Academy where I studied composition, music history, theory, counterpoint, orchestration as well as piano, voice, and more. My professional experience is extensive. I've been doing commercial scoring for 12 years, I have experience with modern recording and engineering techniques and I play many instruments. Drawing on my solid conservatory training as well as years of experience as a ...

My 9 year old son has been taking lessons with Daniel for the past 3 years. During this time we have seen a lot of growth in our son's musical abilities. We really appreciate Daniel's patience and flexibility within his lesson plan. Our son had learned theory, music history and practiced ear training all within his lessons. Recently our son was writing a "score" for one of his home made movies. Daniel was able to give him "real world" advice and incorporate that into his lesson. We are thrilled to have been referred to Daniel and look foreword to having our 4 year old start lessons next year.

Daniel is an awesome instructor. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about music and knows how to teach and convey that enthusiasm about music to his students. I thoroughly enjoy my weekly harmonic lessons with him.

Thank you, Daniel!
