About Isaac

ABOUT

I am a teacher, musician and songwriter born and raised in Brooklyn. I began taking piano lessons as a child, got my first harmonica at thirteen years old, and my first guitar the year after that. At sixteen I started teaching music lessons and learning advanced theory on the side. Later, I studied theory more formally in San Diego, learning classical guitar, composition, ear training, and piano.

In the summers I teach woodworking to 800 children in a day camp and coordinate a weekend series of free concerts in my local community garden. The rest of the year, when not performing and recording my own material, I teach music to adults and children of all ages. My love of music is combined with genuine enjoyment of teaching. I would describe myself as a confident, relaxed, ...

Great experience!

I started lessons with Isaac a couple of years ago and it has been a pleasure working together. I have learned so much about instruments in general and most importantly my own voice when I play. He is versatile in teaching and playing style. Til this day, we are still working together and I'm continuing to learn.

Lessons with a passion.

I hired Isaac to help my 15 year old son learn to play guitar.
After just a few lessons my son has shown great improvement. (Okay, in part it is due to my sons amazing abilities…hehe)

I had the pleasure of over seeing one of his lessons, and noted Isaac exhibited patience, & skill, with a relaxed personality. He made learning to play guitar a fun experience.

I highly recommend Isaac as a music teacher.
Andrei P. Matawan, NJ

I can teach all the basics of mandolin any student needs to start playing and enjoying the mandolin.

About Andrei

Teaching music is my passion, it is more than just a career. I value each student and the time I have with them; helping them to explore the world of music. Hopefully after each lesson, my students walk away with a deeper understanding of music theory and have enjoyed their time. I am available to teach Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar, Bass, Upright Bass, Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin, and beginner Drums.

I am a husband and father. I teach all age ranges.

*** Lesson Details ***
I approach each lesson differently because every student is unique. During the initial lesson I will begin to assess the student's ability, determine the best teaching technique for them, and setup a practicing at home guideline. My job is to help the student reach their individual goals ...

Andrei has been our weekly music teacher for more than three years. He teaches my son (now 9 years old) to read music and play the drums and the piano, and he teaches me to play the guitar.

Andrei has been nothing but reliable and generous with his time. He is proficient in music history and theory, in a wide range of musical styles, on multiple instruments. His patience, diverse knowledge and skills along with what appears to be an intuitive approach toward each of his varied students, has been very effective for us. Also, he knows A LOT of music, has a great ear and doesn't seem to mind working with us to play whatever tunes we come up with each week.

If you or your child wants to learn to play an instrument, this is the guy!

Michael is great at listening to what I want to learn, and then teaching it to me in a way that I can understand easily. Also, he's very patient when there's a skill / technique that I'm trying to figure out how to master.

Concetta was such a treat to have in our home! She came out all the way from NY to NJ for my mothers birthday, and though she is a beginner, emerged from the 1 hour lesson so inspired to keep practicing, able to fully complete her first song! She even did a little performance at the end on the lesson! She is a great people person, fun to talk to, and she really knows her stuff. Excellent choice!

I have learned more in just three lessons with Concetta than I learned after three months of once a week lessons with an instructor from a music store.

Concetta has a natural gift to teach and an ability to allow even a musical novice, like me, understand basic music theory.

This talented young lady eat, sleeps and breathes music.

When I met Concetta online, I had never played the Mandolin before. Now after 4 going on 5 months I am in the beginning stages of learning Vivaldi's Concerto for Mandolin. This feat was accomplished by Concetta's knowledge, understanding and compassion for this student who was clumsy, awkward and with little self confidence. I now know where I want to go with the Mandolin and with Concetta's guidance and wisdom, I know I will be given a strong foundation to achieve it. This has been the best experience for me and I know it will also be for you as well....:)
