Neguine is a great teacher she's patient and very understanding I have my second class with her coming up and I can't wait
Sohan
Neguine was great. Patient and easy-going. My son enjoyed the lesson and looks forward to the next one.
Matthew
Neguine teaches piano to my two children, ages 8 and 6, and she’s been wonderful. She comes to our house and immediately the house is a calm friendly place to learn music. She’s patient with my kids who love piano but are still little, and she has a good sense of humor when they want to try something a little quirky. They also have been making great strides with sightreading, and their eagerness to learn more has only increased. Neguine also does not rush the kids: If a child needs to repeat part of a lesson for another week as she is good about making sure kids reinforce what they’re learning, which is something I appreciate, and my kids have learned to appreciate that too. I highly recommend her!

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.
John J Conlon
Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Rakeen
Some people might fare better with this instructor. More chatting than instructing. Usually telling stories trying to sell himself and talk about how great he is. Delusional ideas about your relationship. Accusatory. Takes things personally. Burns bridges. Claims to be a vocal therapist but doesn't do any vocal therapy. Can provide bad advice and medical information.
Jim
This was my first piano lesson in 50 years. It was everything I hoped it would be... intellectual, fun, relaxed... and it filled me with hope that I could finally make something out of a musical instrument I left in the dust so many years ago. Jimi is wonderful to talk with and work with. This was beyond my expectations.

I’m 80 years old and play sax in a Senior band. I signed up for several lessons with Jimi Z. to improve my tone and breathing. I think Jimi did a great job with me, and I recommend Jimi for sax lessons. Dan Ginsberg

Private Songwriting Teacher

Songwriting Students are expected to have some basic knowledge on how to construct a basic melody and underlying harmony. Knowledge of singing or playing a musical instrument is preferred but not required.

Experience in musical notation is not required, but will be taught and learned as part of the songwriting coursework. Songwriting lessons will include exploration of writing in various musical keys (both major and minor) and music theory.

Lessons topics will be introduced by a power point presentation that you can refer to at your convenience when working on your assignments. Assignments and projects will be given based on the level of songwriting displayed by the student. I consider this a mentorship, because I will help you to improve your songwriting craft while encouraging your originality and development as an artist.

I highly recommend Kenneth to anyone needing guidance with learning more about songwriting techniques."

"I have gone through three to four teachers in my musical journey and none of them have ever compared to Peter. He never fails to astound me with his composing, playing, and production abilities.
I have been his student for about three and a half years now and I don't plan on changing that anytime soon. I look forward to my lessons because he makes every second exciting and valuable. Whether he is teaching piano, technique, songwriting, theory or voice, his passion radiates through and is extremely contagious.
He has not only substantially improved my playing and technique, but also introduced me to songwriting, which has immensely changed my life and I owe all my success to him.
Peter is not only my piano teacher, but my role model, mentor and big brother. He has always been there to pick me up and regain my confidence after the performances that weren't my best. Being a teenager, it's easy to doubt my talents, but Peter has always been the one to remind me of my abilities and send me in the right direction.
He is the most dedicated and patient man I know. He is always willing to work around my schedule, even though he lives an hour or two away from me. He never becomes upset, or at least he never shows it, when I butcher his compositions or don't get a piece right the first time.
I am overjoyed and blessed to have found such an amazing piano teacher and mentor."

The Anatomy of a Hit Pop Song [Infographic]

When you're learning how to write a song, looking at how other songs are structured can be a great place to start. Like looking at a map before you go on a roadtrip, checking out the basic elements of songs you love gives you a sense of how they were written and what you need to do to write a song of your own. If analyzing all your favorite songs sounds like a daunting task (it is), you're in luck. The Billboard Experiment wanted to know if there was a formula that could determine which songs …
