I have a simple, no-nonsense approach to vocal training based on how the voice is designed to work. I help students build the vocal strength and coordination necessary to sing efficiently, using principles and exercises learned through over a decade of intensive vocal study in NYC.

Please be advised that I expect students to learn their music on their own (although I'll certainly give you some learning strategies, help with tricky passages, etc.). If you are looking for someone to "teach you the notes," I'm probably not who you're looking for. But, if you want to learn how to sing well and are willing to put in the work, I'd love to help you achieve your goals!

About Ted

My name is Ted D. and I have been teaching private lessons in both guitar and voice for over a decade. I began playing guitar at age eleven and continued into college, where I majored in guitar performance. While in college I began studying voice seriously, adding a vocal performance major to my deg

Ted has helped me more in just a few short months of lessons than all the other teachers I've had in the past. My confidence has soared. My voice is stronger and my range is growing. I highly recommend Ted to anyone trying to improve their singing voice. I just can't say enough good things about him.
Mariah
Ted is an absolutely phenomenal instructor and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to strengthen their vocal abilities. I’ve been singing my whole life and have been the lead singer in a band for 2 years, but had never had any technical training. Over the course of 8 lessons, my range has drastically increased, and my voice sounds clearer, stronger, and more professional. Aside from being a wonderful teacher, Ted is patient, kind, funny, knowledgeable, and made me feel very at ease. I definitely plan on taking more lessons with him in the future!
Kat
I could not speak more highly of Ted as both an instructor and person. I started voice lessons with very little confidence & musical knowledge, and in just a few months of working with Ted have become MUCH more confident and skilled as a singer/performer. Ted is professional, patient, informative, humorous, encouraging, and most of all passionate about helping students reach their musical goals. I would highly recommend Ted for singers seeking professional careers in voice, as well as people simply wanting to improve their voice and boost their confidence.

I work with students exclusively by ear, concentrating on development of rhythm and the syncopation of melody against rhythm.

About Cindy

Cindy has been making music for as long as she can remember. She was the assistant director of a synagogue children's choir by age 14 and has directed and sung with many community choirs and pickup groups since then. But it wasn't until 1996 that she discovered the autoharp and began teaching and p

Cindy is an absolutely amazing music instructor. She's a true musician but she's also masterful at sharing what she knows. I'm learning old time fiddle in the West Virginia tradition, and I don't take this for granted. Cindy's knowledge of and relationship to this music goes deep. While I become a much stronger player under her guidance, I am also learning about the lineage this music comes from, and finding that her words of wisdom apply to other instruments I play, and even my growth beyond music. Seriously - Cindy is fantastic.
Eugenie
Cindy is an amazing fiddle teacher. I came to her for help in learning old-time fiddle technique. I wanted something more than just learning the tune. Cindy is helping me improve my bowing style, be a better listener, and achieve a sound I always dreamed of but didn't know how to do.

When it comes to teachers, Cindy is the best of the best. She'll lay out exercises to build your skill step by step. If you love old-time music and want to excel at playing the fiddle, Cindy's your gal.
Marybeth M.
Cindy is teaching me how to play Old Time fiddle tunes and technique in the cross tune of GDGD. I find her to be an instructor that is both process-oriented (providing information about the music background"what,when,who,why") and product-oriented (how to play/technique). She always begins lessons with a review from the past lesson and the homework provided that she records and sends to me. Her demonstrations are very clear and are at a rate and pace comfortable to me. She provides clear verbal cues throughout the lessons. Cindy is very strong in task analysis, breaking down each tune part, beginning with bowing. Her feedback throughout lessons is both positive-specific and corrective-specific. Every lesson is highly enjoyable and filled with encouragement. I am a retired college professor in teacher education, and I know about the constructs of what makes a high quality teacher - Cindy, demonstrates this to me. I feel fortunate to have Cindy as my fiddle instructor.

Speaking as a performer who has auditioned for countless opportunities in a 40+ year professional career, and got EVERY role or position I ever auditioned for, (yes, really. 100%!!), I can speak with absolute certainty as to how to impress an audition panel. We will unpack the necessities of being prepared, being confident, and being at peak performance level when it counts. I work with students and professionals on individual audition pieces, making sure they are prepared to succeed. I guarantee that you will be ready to perform, and your performance will be spot-on and memorable. You will rise above the level playing field, and come away with the part you desire...

About Glenn

Teaching for over 24 years; owner of my own music store/studio for past 14 years.

Teaching beginner - advanced from age 5 to 70+.

I typically use the 21st Century Guitar method book with audio CD and I supplement the text with write-ins or handouts/worksheets as applied to the student's needs and questions. I try to get students playing chords as soon as possible; usually stating with open position power-chords and one or two finger open position chords.

I do flatpicking and fingerstyle ( with or without picks) and encourage students to try both. I try to get the student to sing and play - don't be bashful...I try to have fun with students.

I will help you learn to create chord progressions and write a chord chart and maybe a melody for your first songwriting experience. Usually we will do this using power -chords for beginners or what ever chords the student can handle.

I can train you how to learn songs by ear from recordings once you have some basic abilities.

"Mr. Colin is an excellent tutor! He is the first tutor of many from whose teaching my AP Chemistry grades improved drastically. He is very easy going and also easy to talk to. If you don't understand something, he will try to explain it in as many ways possible; just make sure to stop and let him know that you didn't understand the concept. I am very satisfied with his teaching style and therefore plan to have more lessons with Mr. Colin in college chemistry classes. I would 100% recommend him to anyone!"
