Eliane Delage is a music coach and guitarist based in NYC who has taught hundreds of students, and coached a multitude of bands and ensembles.
"My students have been a variety of professionals in NYC, lawyers, financial analysts, entrepreneurs, academics, doctors, CEOs, marketing people, Army, Air Force and Marine vets, software engineers, people who work at Google, you name it! Music is their hobby and my main impact is to help them believe they can do it well, meaning play better, and to bring their confidence up, in many cases they never played with other people before, and when they do there’s huge transformation of peer to peer motivation and support, it’s so amazing to witness it every time and I feel lucky that I created an environment where they can express through an instrument and tap into their rockstar dream even if just after work or on the weekends."
