Well, I see that not much has changed in more than twenty years. I was a teacher of voice, piano, and music theory at this place for the better part of the Eighties, and the best way I can describe their approach to teaching is

When I took my first guitar lesson at Dr. Trogan's Music School I knew for the first time what a music lesson was, becasuse I had gone to so many store fronts and phony "conservatories" that I had just about given up on music because the teachers were not patient and obviously knew next to nothing about music or anything else, for that matter. But this place was wild! Students and teachers were running all over the ploace and having a ball. They were taking private lessons and also studying
theory and ear trainging and then I understood why people like Alyssa Miilano studied here and many other stars, too, along with ordinary jerks like yours truly. ALSO I was paying less THAN ELEVEN BUCKS A LESSON.i WANT TO THANK DR TROGAN AND HIS VERY DECENT TEACHERS. HE HAS A DOCTORATE IN MUSIC COMPOSITION FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN and has been running his place for almost fifty years. I swear this is all true. Check me out. THANKS,Doc!

This is the most sensible and orderly way to obtain a true musical education. Everyone works at his own speed on theory with constant, friendly help--even by PhD.s from Columbia University. Private lessons are not timed but many run up

Chaotic place. There does not seem to be any consistency or continuity. Kids get put with any teacher that is available. Lessons are supposed to be a 1/2 and hour, never seen a child in a room for more that 15 minutes for a "private lesson." My child had only 2 lessons. The first was 10 minutes (they claim the were assessing her) and the second, a week later with a different teacher, was 15 minutes at the most.

They have no printed material to tell you before you sign up what the schedule is or the conditions to which you are agreeing. They write it on the back of a business card. I was given at least 6 cards. The receipt is the agreement READ IT CAREFULLY. I did not. I paid by check for a year and they give NO REFUNDS. This was NOT mentioned to me at all. I was only given the these conditions after I handed them my check. Now I am out nearly $700.

Cons: Length of lesson, continuity with same teacher
