I begin where ever the student is, Either if it's at day one, or learning a blues song we will jump into it and fun learning whatever it is that the student wishes to learn. All I ask for is 30 minutes everyday for the student to keep learning what we have set out to learn.

Moa is an excellent instructor! She has a great attitude and is a patient teacher. She customizes lesson plans based on your interests and skill level. I was pretty new to guitar when I started, and I’ve already learned a few different songs! I would highly recommend her!
Lyla
Moa is the best and makes everything feel very light and comfortable! I had never taken a singing lesson before and can be paralyzingly shy. I’ve taken 5 classes so far and will continue to take lessons with her for writing and guitar. I highly recommend taking class with her :)

I started learning violin from Dr. Dimitry 1 month ago because, unlike other teachers, I found Dr. Dimitry very honest in specifying the subtleties and nuances, especially the snaggy ones which make the violin one of the most challenging instruments to learn. Although his classes were very expensive, I chose him as he was a straightforward and experienced violinist and I never compromise on the quality of teaching. Also, being a doctoral student myself, I know what it means to earn a Ph.D. and that too in music.

Now, it has been one month, and I enjoy his classes. His analogies and examples are an apt way of understanding the techniques of playing the violin. Though Dr. Dimitry is an advanced violinist, he is very patient with absolute beginners. To sum up, I would highly recommend him to people who are very serious and determined to learn and practice the violin.
Sharon
A true professional and a great teacher! I have been taking violin lessons now for 6 months with Dr. Dimitri Olevsky, having switched to Dimitri after having had a mediocre experience with my previous teacher. Wow…what a difference. Dimitri ably blends his extensive knowledge, talent, and seriousness about his craft with a witty sense of humor. He is able to simplify the complexities of violin technique so that it is truly feels accessible. Highly recommended.
Alexander
Dr. Olevsky was immediately able to improve my playing with direct, practical advice. He is concerned with efficient practice and in making the maximum amount of progress in the time that one has. He is highly knowledgable about the audition process and the real day to day of being a professional performing violinist. I have been playing for 15+ years and find Dimitry's lessons very challenging and stimulating.

My main goal is making sure the student is having fun while learning! I cater my lessons around the individual student, because I think that students learn the best doing something they love. I cover the fundamentals - music theory, proper technique, note reading - while incorporating songs and activities the student will enjoy. While every student will learn the basics, I focus in on the student's specific interest during the lesson, whether that's classical music, pop, musical theater, or jazz.

About Nicole

I am a composer, pianist, and vocalist originally from Austin, Texas, currently living in New York City. I graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a degree in music composition in May 2020, and I am currently pursuing a masters in composition at New York University. Music has

Nicole started to teach piano lessons to my then 3yo son. She's very professional and as well as accomodating whenever we have conflict with our schedules. She's very patient and good with kids. We've been doing in person lessons with her for years and then this year ,covid happened and also Nicole had to move to NY but we are still doing lessons with her, virtual learning style. We are so glad that even with the current set up,my son, now 7yo, still enjoying and learning more from her.

I’ve worked with Judith for a few years now and she does a great job working with my goals for learning German. She is very patient and flexible with our learning and lessons!
ELSA
Judith is wonderful! All the issues I've had with my voice and singing for years, she addressed with pinpoint accuracy and expert instruction to help me correct them; even the things I didn't know how to explain! She has a great ear and a wealth of practical knowledge to share. After my first month of lessons, my singing is so much better! She is so kind and non-judgmental, and fun to work with, too. With Judith's help and encouragement, I'm hitting notes and singing songs I didn't think I had the range for and turning my good voice into a great voice. Thank you so much, Judith!
Jason
Excellent instruction and great personality! Highly recommend Judith!

"Ms. Valyncia was an amazing coach. She was very patient , very honest and very professional. She pushed me beyond my comfort zone and I was able to improve my breathing, improve my range and put some personality into my performance. That was a long time ago but I plan on booking her again as my coach. I highly recommend her ! You will definitely become a better singer / performer when working with her , as long as you put the work in."
