Let’s face it: Every Long Islander, at one point or another, has fantasized about taking the stage at the Nassau Coliseum and rocking out before a huge crowd. But nobody becomes a great musician overnight. It takes years of practice and great teachers to help students master instruments such as the piano, the clarinet, the guitar and more. Long Island is fortunate to have many great music schools, but here’s the one our voters think tops all the charts.
