Very knowledgable and enthusiastic teacher. He has a way about him that makes the lesson exciting.
Yoella & Malkiya O.
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!!!

"My 7/8 year old REALLY wanted to try trombone, a difficult instrument for anyone but especially a young kid. Pasquale agreed to take him on without judgment or preconceptions. Ultimately it was a little too difficult but he completely understood that a kid should still be allowed to experiment. His teaching style was the perfect balance of stern and jovial and my typical silly kid respected him. When the time came to end lessons, my kid is not dissuaded and is looking forward to trying new instruments. Pasquale was very understanding and let me and my kid know that if the passion for trombone returns he is still his teacher. Thanks Pasquale!"

"After a year away from playing the trombone, my son needed to get prepared to audition for the high school jazz band over the summer. Alejandro helped him get back up to speed and learn more about how what it means to be a jazz musician. Alejandro is able to connect and personalize lessons, and he is very flexible. My son made the jazz band, and is continuing work with Alejandro to help him advance."

"I went to Mr Espinosa's home to take my lesson - the place is right next to the 135th subway stop, very convenient! Mr Espinosa was patient, understanding, and friendly. I was a little worried that a professional like him would laugh at the embarrassing skills of an adult like mine - didn't happen. He was down to earth despite his great playing, kind of more like a friend or a big buddy rather than a teacher. I think our lesson brought me much improvement! He also taught me some helpful daily practice routines. Another little touching detail was he provided me with free drinks and snacks, something none of my other teachers have done before. His studio was also fully equipped: it has a piano, great stereo, stands, and music books."
