Here is what some of our students and parents are saying about taking lessons with us at the Music School of CNY.


 “I would highly recommend any parent who is thinking about introducing their child to a music program to make this their first and only stop in their search for the best teachers and music experience in Syracuse!”

- Kitty Falco, rock guitar.

“Taking lessons is a very enjoyable and rewarding experience for me and I highly recommend this school.”

- Daniel Hayduke, classical guitar.

“John has an extraordinary gift for teaching. His wealth of knowledge, terrific communication skills, and love of music form the basis for a relaxing, rich, and rewarding class. He inspires my son to set goals and work hard to achieve them. He is an exemplary mentor and really cool too!”

- Melissa Lopoo, The Childbloom Guitar Program.

“John is a great teacher. His amazing skill, patience, and knowledge make him second to none.”

- Dennis Krauss, rock guitar.

“Both of my sons have been in the Childbloom Guitar Program for a year and a half and in that time they have learned so much. What I like best about the lessons is the attention to the mechanics of form and the way John teaches music. These fundamentals will stay with them in any music class that they take. They love playing and learning new music. Even practice time at home comes easy!”

- Jackie Snow, The Childbloom Guitar Program.

“This is the stepping stone to your musical goals!”

- Ramone Rodriguez, electric guitar.



“John is a patient, passionate, and accomplished musician. In the three and a half years of instructing my son, he is solely responsible for developing his guitar skills and love of the guitar. John you rock! Thank you for everything!”

- Cheryl Mathurin, rock guitar.


“Very professional and articulate… Guitar made easy.”

- Larry Leroy, classical guitar.


“The requirements for what is learned in class must be supported by the exercises at home. The structure and consistency is the most valuable aspect of the lessons.”

- Liliya Lifanova, classical guitar.


“I like the techniques Bob shows me. He breaks down the measures teaching theory while increasing your confidence. Areas that need work are always explained positively. I am glad that I switched to this program. Bob makes learning piano fun.”

- Colleen Hulbert, piano.
