Ehud E. Newtonville, MA

About Ehud

My name is Ehud, I've been combining a teaching and performance career for the past few years. I'm a bassist, composer and band leader and I hold a M.M from the New England Conservatory and a B.M from the Jerusalem Music Academy. In my teaching, I work with students in order on the skills that are required to be a musician, and be able to use music as a language. I enjoy teaching very much, and love seeing how my students make progress and develop. *** Bio *** Musical Explosion (Yedioth) "Real Promise" Described as "one of the top Bassists in New York City" by "Blue Monk Moods", Bassist and Composer Ehud E. is internationally renowned as one of the most unique voices in the Jazz and world music scene.

Ehud is very knowledgeable of his profession and patient with my 7 year old boy. Ehud is very patient and flexible when needed, he has tremendous approach and goes right to the point when teaching. I can see my son's improvement week to week. I would recommend him to all students at any age and any level. Best of all he comes to teach my son right at our music room in our house.

Best teacher ever! That guy takes the time to explain in the best way how to play different techniques and styles, very informative and the best part is- you can take the lesson from the comfort of your home! He gives lessons through Skype and next thing you know you are a professional musician! Highly recommended!

I offer these observations on behalf of Ehud E. not as his student, but
rather as an appreciative listener--from a very unusual vantage point. I had
the great privilege of hearing one of the world's greatest bassists, Dave
Holland perform live with Miles Davis, as well as Chick Correa. Notably,
it is Holland with whom Ehud studied in a Master Class. I am doubly blessed
now to be able to continue hearing another of the world's greatest bassists,
Ehud E.--in various live performances.
It bears mentioning that having seen Ehud perform for audiences of
all ages, he has that rare ability to teach us as individuals not only to play our
instruments better, but to be better listeners, as well. He doesn't merely
'perform' for his audience members; he communicates with each of them
intimately, in his own, unique dialect of the universal language of music.
I can only imagine the joy of being his student--and the gift of being
able to witness one's own musicality come alive in the moment, while learning
at his side.

About Anne

Now scheduling regular, weekly lessons. Pay-as-you go scheduling is not encouraged because of time constraints and lack of consistency for maintaining steady progress and reaching your goals. Weekly students are more successful! If you are ready to commit to at least 4 lessons within a month then you are ready for high quality, music or voice training. ----------------- "Anne M is an experienced and supportive teacher, a jazz vocalist, pianist, composer and lyricist with a conservatory degree in jazz voice from Manhattan School of Music and advanced studies with prominent, NYC jazz piano, music theory and songwriting instructors.

Thank you Anne. I get the most from you that one should play piano with the body in a natural state. "Nature commended should be obeyed."

I think it is incredible that you keep learning new things!

Wish you all the best in the future.

Returning to fundamentals as an adult learner is very difficult and challenging but, at least in my case, very necessary. Annie has been a wonderful piano and voice teacher guiding me through this process - patient and kind, tolerant of my poor practice habits, and able to help me work on all aspects of my music. I would highly recommend her to any prospective student, and hope to continue working with her well into the future.

Go for it!

Being very experienced with teaching to both children and adults of all backgrounds and ambitions, Anne is a very skilled and smart teacher. Her pedagogy has obviously been refined over many years and is clever and efficient yet easy-going and painless. She mixes theory and more academic learning with ear-training, relying as well on your more natural instincts, in order to equip you with the varied skills of a complete musician. She really tailors the teaching to your specific goals and level, as well. All this in a very gentle, easy and genuinely caring way. And always with a smile. Just go for it!

About Derrick

I've been playing the guitar for twenty-six years now, and I've been working as a guitar teacher for the last twenty years. I've been making a living as a guitar teacher in the Boston area for fourteen years now, and I teach in two locations - Brighton and Dedham. Prior to that I also taught at Guitar Attention Center in Springfield, Ohio while I was in college, where I graduated with honors at Wright State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communications. I've also played in a variety of original and cover bands, and have written a number of songs of my own. I'm working on recording these as instrumentals in my home studio. I also play in a rock cover band called Element 78. We play out every weekend, and even on some Sundays. The singer and I have also started doing some

About Amelia

I have been interested in music for as long as I can remember. I began taking piano lessons when I was six and started auditioning for musicals at eight. I fell in love with performing, and my passion has grown into a career path. I began studying voice privately when I was in thirteen. Music and performing have brought so much joy to my life, and I love to help others develop and cultivate their own passion for music. I recently received my Master’s Degree in Vocal Performance from the New England Conservatory. I also hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Vocal Performance from DePaul University. During undergrad, I was able to study abroad for a semester in Vienna, Austria where I performed in an opera workshop. I have spent two summers on Cape Cod singing with the College Light Opera ...

About Christopher

Welcome! My name is Christopher S. and I am a classical guitarist, song writer, and experienced music teacher. I began learning music when I was nine on the piano however by the time I turned twelve I discovered my passion for the guitar. I began by learning songs and playing in band with some of my school friends. This was the start of my journey into music. I started with blues, rock, and pop music but I quickly moved into more complex genres such as funk and Jazz music. In college I began my studies of the historically endless and huge world of classical music. This is also when I began teaching and taking students of guitar. I studied classical music at Hofstra University and completed my degree at Humboldt State University in Northern California. After earning my degree I began ...

About Aleksandra

I am a Berklee graduate with over a decade of experience performing, composing, and teaching. Music has shaped my life, and I would love to see how it can shape yours. There is no limit to the profound joy of learning an instrument and expressing ones self through it, and you are never to young or to old to start! Everyone has different musical tastes, and strengths and weaknesses. My goal is to bring out your inner excellence by teaching to your learning style, and showing you how to play the music that YOU are passionate about. I am not interested in force feeding you songs or styles of music that you are not interested in. I strive to keep my students constantly motivated and enthused each lesson.
