Jason is an acclaimed professional guitarist, singer and songwriter who also teaches privately in Nassau County, Long Island, NY. Jason was a student of famed NYC guitarist and current Berklee school of music professor, Dave "Fuze" Fiuczynski, after first beginning his own guitar playing journey as a 10-year-old conservatory student on the south shore of Long Island. In addition to writing and performing full time, Jason has been teaching professionally for over 10 years and, in that time, has maintained a consistent student base of 25-30 students at a time, guys and girls, men and women, ranging in ages from 10 to 75. Style interests vary greatly and Jason is very conscious of working with each student to help them discover their own unique voice and passion.
I am a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. In 1992, I graduated from Baruch (CUNY) with a degree in Applied Music. I have performed in Nashville and in New York City which has been one of my greater experiences as a musician, and I have had the opportunity to play at Jazz and Country Western clubs. I also am part of the September Concert Event every year for the past 9 years performing with my students and holding a tribute with The Loupakis Gymnastics from Astoria in Athens Square Park.
As a musical theatre performer, voice teacher and coach, I have learned the singer’s paramount need is to maintain vocal health and consistency of performance. This is achieved by laying a foundation of solid vocal training, focusing on the healthy functional use of the voice with emphasis on the following aspects to develop a secure singing technique: · Determination of correct voice category and range · Proper breath support and natural resonance · Alignment of body and larynx · Relaxation of the jaw, tongue and pharynx · Correct diction and articulation · Ear training exercises · Repertoire selection appropriate to age and voice type · Interpretation-integrating text and musical expression
I am an easy going, happy person, who enjoys working with students no matter what their goals are. Some people want to perform for fun, and others want to make this a career. Either way, I make it my goal to help you enjoy what you do while you gain the knowledge to bring your performing to a higher, more inspiring level.
I Beleve in teaching through exploration in a joyous, supportive environment! Whether you're starting at the very beginning or brushing up on skills learned long ago, I will guide you through exercises to free your voice. My studio is a place of positivity.

Learning to sing as a child is fun, rewarding, and vastly beneficial to overall development. Children can develop their ability to accurately recreate pitch, theory knowledge, and singing technique. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills, and familiarity with different musical genres. Learning to sing can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, entering competitions, or performing live. Students are advised to start their lessons no earlier than 12 years of age, as they have yet to reach vocal maturity before that age.
With in-home voice lessons, discover the depth of your singing talent. A professional from Musika's network will offer personalized instruction in the comfort of your home. Learn to sing R&B, master Opera, or prepare for a competition. All you need is the desire to learn, an effort to practice and a piano or keyboard. The instructor helps you find songs that fit your voice, and you can learn better control and projection. It doesn't matter if you're a professional or a novice singer. You will learn something new each time without leaving the house when you participate in voice lessons at home.
Keeping your voice healthy starts with keeping your entire body healthy. The voice is contained within the body, so following a balanced diet, getting adequate sleep, and reducing stress are all keys to keeping your body and voice healthy. Singers should avoid excess caffeine, smoking, and consumption of alcohol and drugs. Excessive screaming, speaking, performing in loud or crowded places without proper amplification, and singing for a prolonged amount of time without rest should all be avoided. Singers should always stay hydrated by drinking purified water, and try to stay away from sugary drinks and colas.
There are numerous reasons why adults may wish to start taking singing lessons. Singing is a highly enjoyable, fun, and creative way to express yourself musically. Many students take lessons simply to improve their singing for fun or to take up a new hobby. Students who have specific goals in mind can also have lessons to achieve those aims. Often singers want to improve a particular aspect of their singing such as increasing their vocal range or learning to sing with vibrato or greater agility (runs, fills, etc.) Singers who have a certain style of singing in mind can also learn the techniques behind a wide range of genres.
Students will learn and develop good, safe and effective vocal technique during their vocal lessons. The best way to build a strong, powerful voice is to learn the techniques and practice the exercises covered in lessons. The essence of good vocal technique is centered around being able to successfully bridge from the chest voice to the head voice, with no vocal breaks or noticeable change in tonality. To do this successfully requires strength, timing, and coordination of the intrinsic muscles of the larynx, the ability to maintain good vocal fold closure, and to tilt the thyroid cartilage. To do these things successfully students will also learn how to support their singing with breath management, as it is important that the air pressure above and below the vocal folds is balanced. During lessons, students will be taught the exercises in order to successfully master these skills. They will also learn about performance, stylistic and interpretive techniques, and how to apply them to singing songs.

My daughter is extremely happy and comfortable with Rachel, and looks forward to her piano lessons every week. She is a very kind and patient teacher, always using positive reenforcement with my daughter, which makes all the difference in the world to children. We definitely are looking forward to continued piano lessons with her. So glad we found her.

After moving from NY and parting from our amazing piano instructor, we thought we couldn't find a piano teacher close to what we knew. We are happy to say Musika matched us up with someone professional and friendly who enjoys teaching younger students. Thank you! We definitely recommend Kuan as a piano instructor :)

Omar is a great teacher as he provides expert instruction AND the right amount of encouragement. He is a professional musician on several instruments, yet he is patient with beginners! He also has gone out of his way to purchase an appropriate book for me, strings to re-string the cello, and extra attention to tuning. I appreciate how he explains and demonstrates exactly what a beginning cello student needs to know.
Review by Brooklyn
Laura is a fabulous teacher. She explains concepts to me using concrete examples so that I can understand changes that I need to make to my posture, breathing, phrasing, etc. She makes warm-up exercises fun, and she's got a great sense of humor over all. Her teaching style is collaborative, more egalitarian (she respects what I already know and meets me at my level), tailored to my particular interests and strengths, and I always look forward to our lessons!
Review by Steve Newman
My daughter began learning sax in her school band, but she didn't begin PLAYING sax until she started lessons with Debra. From scales and exercises to actual pieces, Debra coached my daughter with real insight, sensitivity, and patience. Her knowledge of the instrument and feeling for music - along with her easy-going,"kid friendly" personality - make Debra the ideal teacher and musical mentor.

Kevin was such a fun, smart and innovative voice teacher to work with. I had the pleasure of taking lessons with him for over a year and I couldn’t have been more pleased with my time under his training. In just a few weeks I noticed my voice was stronger and I was able to apply his teaching and see the results. He explains his techniques in a way that the student is able to actually hear and feel the changes he is referring to. This allows the student to efficiently practice outside of lessons. Even further, he believed in me and truly cared about my progress. He was always energetic and focused in lessons and was continually surprised how far a song could come in just one hour of his time. Under his teaching I developed a stronger belt in my higher range, learned how to color my voice for different sounds and improved my stage presence. I wholeheartedly trust Kevin’s musical insight and was grateful that he challenged me with a wide variety of songs and styles that I hadn’t considered trying before.
Review by Howard
We value Chelsea for the quality of her lessons, but also for the flexibility of her schedule. She has worked around family vacations, impromptu summer camps and the upcoming school year. Emily is better prepared to start middle school band this year due to flute lessons from Chelsea and we plan to continue the lessons for the foreseeable future.
Review by Bradford Putt
Angela has been a perfect match-up for me. She is warm and welcoming, and also serious about teaching - she keeps our time focused and on track. What I truly appreciate, as a new singer anxiously preparing for an event, is the confidence she gives me. Angela is very encouraging. I enjoy coming to class.
Review by Venessea Gilbert
Rebecca has been super with my son! He is 8yrs old and has mild aspergers. He has never played an instrument before but after one lesson with his teacher he could keep a beat on his drums. She is able to keep his attention and really makes it fun! She is flexible and easy going. I highly recommend her for any lessons. Very nice teacher! Thank you Rebecca for your outstanding service!!
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
