Teachers Are in a Class of Their Own
Our in-home music teachers are some of New York City’s most talented, educated, and inspiring instructors.
- They are graduates of the top schools such as Berklee College of Music, Manhattan School of Music, The Julliard School, NYU Steinhardt Jazz program, and Columbia University music program.
- Each teacher has several years of experience and believe learning music should happen in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.
- Upon request, we send an in-home teacher to give instruction in a foreign language: Spanish, French, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Portuguese, Hebrew, German, Flemish, Russian and Dutch.
- Most of our teachers are multi-instrumentalists — they can teach several instruments to a family or a small group. Want to learn to sing and play the guitar? Our instructors can teach both.
- Our music instructors are experienced in teaching children of all ages (including special needs and/or musically gifted kids), and adults of different proficiency levels. In each case, they create a personalized lesson plan that meets individual needs.
- Our music instructors not only teach to play an instrument or give vocal lessons, but also awaken joy and creativity, which, in turn, will motivate their students to keep learning.
