Our music lesson students will have the opportunity to take lessons from the comfort of their own home or in one of the teachers studios. Careful attention is placed on each student to ensure a custom lesson plan. Our music teachers understand that every student has different needs and abilities and therefore the lessons will be planned with that knowledge in mind.
lessons are available in the following areas:
Instruments: Piano, Voice
I use exercises from "How to Train Singers" by Larra Browning Henderson. I studied with her personally. For the piano, I use the Alfred books. They offer a variety of books for students of all ages. Regardless of instrument, I place a strong emphasis on technique and can also offer training in theory.
Teaching Methods: All of my students work on tried and true Bel Canto and Swedish techniques. I will give each student special vocal exercises to work on at home. I generally assign songs from The 24 Italian Songs and Arias songbook and I use Musical Theater Anthologies. Some of my more advanced High School students work on Opera arias.
Teaching Styles: I am a teacher who looks to understand the individuality of each student so that I can effectively convey vocal and performance techniques. Students find me to be very nurturing and knowledgable. My students always increase their ability and confidence while studying with me.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
I began studying music at age 10. By twelve years old I began serious study and practice on the piano. By 15 I was playing weekly church services on both organ and piano. I attended both Rutgers College and Berklee School of Music in Boston, where I continued my studies in piano, jazz composition and arranging, voice and performance. After graduation I began a career as a professional pianist, choir director, and teacher. I have worked countless venue for the past 30 years.
Teaching Methods: NYU Vocal Pedagoy Methods
Teaching Styles: Friendly and Informative
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Saxophone, Clarinet, Recorder
Teaching Methods: Ideally, I prefer to work with younger children because it is at this stage in life that they are most musically receptive; I believe it is important for a budding musician to love their craft and - regardless of age, technical skill can only take one so far in the arts. I have seen far too many musicians abandon their gift for the mundane, due to distorted visions of incompetence and unwarranted deceptions of grandeur. As a result, I have made emotional stability and dedication an absolute pillar in my philosophy. In addition to practical instruction, I strive to make sure students are aware of their own abillities, so that they may recognise, appreciate, and nurture their talents to the furthest potential with the necessarily outlook.
Teaching Styles: I begin my teaching by gauging the student's current ability; once it has been recognised, I then inquire about what it is the student wishes to accomplish under my tutelage. I weed out any early misgivings by trying to get the student to settle for realistic goals. Aiming too high can often overwhelm individuals, and it is a mistake I like to avoid in my teaching, especially in a field as emotionally demanding as music. However, this does not mean that the overall goal of the lessons should be underachievement; rather, my hopes for the long-term are that the cumulative growth in the student establish a strong foundation so that higher learning becomes not only possible, but manageable.

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
