Enrico Aquino III began tinkling the ivories at the age of three, eventually playing his way to the hallowed performance spaces at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. The talented pianist was born into a musical family: his father opened a music school and piano store in New Jersey, and Aquino has kept the family tradition alive by embracing his father’s belief in friendly, encouraging instruction. The retailer pairs players with new and pre-owned pianos made by brands such as Seiler, J. Strauss & Son, and Baldwin Pianos or digital pianos from makers such as Viscount and Korg. The music academy, meanwhile, has guided fingers of all ages in waltzing across keys for more than 60 years. The academy’s skilled instructors delve into classical, jazz, and popular music during private lessons for pupils who have never read music to those who swallowed a metronome as a child and have been reaping the benefits ever since.

Providing graduates with lifetime job placement assistance on a local and national level, the professional shot-pourers at Authentic Bartending train future bartenders and amateur mixologists in the fine art of drink-making. Their seminars propel learners into the world of free-hand, multi-liquor, and trick pouring, and a 16-hour course demonstrates how to make Manhattans, cream-based drinks, and frozen drinks, among others. Covering customer service and state laws—which forbid serving beer to bears on Sunday—the 16-hour course serves as a launching pad into the full 40-hour certification course, including a lifetime of refresher classes.

In the late 1970s career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.

Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs, and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.

Since 2010, the scene at Hub City Fencing Academy has been the same. An instructor gives the signal and students leap into action, foils and sabers flashing as they lunge and parry. Head Coach Rich Beischer and his team of decorated coaches – most competed at the D-I collegiate level – lead lessons and training camps for all levels of fencer, including kids, active competitors, and those who just want to press elevator buttons with more panache. The instructors make it their goal to not only teach the physical techniques of fencing, but also the discipline and maturity that come from committing to a sport. Parents can get their children started in the healthy, mind-sharpening sport at a young age through the private Mommy (or Daddy) & Me lessons, which teach duelists up to age 7 basic skills alongside a participating parent.

H. W. Bressaw has been teaching karate, specifically as a prominent instructor of Kimura Shukokai, since 1966. That's nearly half a century of correcting stances, building self-confidence, and demonstrating effective self-defense techniques. His unique style stresses technical aspects of physical techniques, which helps make it possible for a person of any size, age, or gender to defend themselves. Today, he leads a highly experienced team of instructors trained to carry forth the mission he started so long ago. H. W. Bressaw and his team specialize in a timeless art known as kata, which builds karate skills while quieting the mind. They also teach a sparring technique known as kumite to their most adventurous students, who learn respect and attention to detail through the ancient art.
