Teaching all levels, from beginning through advanced. I recommend adults to take one-hour lessons every other week. Children do better with half hour lessons every week. Ask about renting a harp!

Mrs. Esther is a really kind, patient, and honest piano teacher. She helped me work through my mistakes and told me what I needed to work on in order to improve. Her way of teaching is effective and it helped me gain more knowledge about piano and the techniques of being a good pianist. She is very caring and understands when I'm in a difficult situation and she always encourages me to keep going. I enjoyed all the experiences I had with Mrs. Esther and the unique personality she had. For the past 9 years, I have learned a lot about music and the hard work that goes into playing the piano. I will never regret having Mrs. Esther as my piano teacher and the adventures I had.
Lawrence
Mrs. Esther has taught me piano over the past 9 years. Over those years, I was able to learn a lot about the innerworkings of the piano, both theory and playing. Mrs. Esther carefully taught me piano with both elegance and patience and created wonderful experiences through the community concerts that she holds. Her kindness reached me in times where I was overburdened with both the study of piano and my schoolwork. The 9 years of piano that I spent with her have been very rewarding and an experience that I will continue to cherish as I continue pianoing.

Thank you for your lesson. I’ve learned a lot today. You’re so understanding and easy to learn from. I’m very excited and waiting to see you for next lessons.

I've taken private drum and piano lessons myself, which has given me a great understanding of all musical areas with a strong focus on rhythm. I've played a lot of different kinds of gigs in a lot of different locations and settings, including Spain and New York. I've been teaching since 2012. When I teach, I try to tailor my lessons to each individual student. If the student is willing to work hard to improve, I'm willing to work just as hard to keep the student improving.

Students will learn their favorite songs with music and by ear. Studio days are available to record the students performing the songs when ready and you get to keep the recordings to showcase your improvement!

Advanced students also welcome. I have challenges for everyone.

We can meet and talk in person before starting lessons to make sure it's a good fit. If you have any questions, feel free to ask :)

"Mr Yakov is very pleasant, patient and professional. He makes learning fun. One of my daughters is very shy and particular. I was concerned for her first violin. But she ended up loving the lesson and the instructor. We did some lessons online and at his studio. During the online lesson, the connection with our internet was horrible. He could hear her playing but she couldn't hear him. Yet, patiently, he got creative and taught the lesson with my daughter through chat. The environment of the studio is comfortable. You can tell he's passionate about what he does. That left me with a great impression of him. We look forward to more lessons with him for as long as we can.
Thanks Mr Yakov!!!"
