All of my lessons are built around you and finding the best ways to help you reach your goals as a musician. Along with building your skills as a horn player I can help you to develop other musical skills such as theory, pitch recognition, and musical phrasing. Looking forward to working with you!

I've played with Daniel for several years and he is an outstanding musician! He is a fearless horn player with a warm personality, he's easy going, flexible, creative, and extremely dedicated. If you have a chance to take a lesson with him I highly recommend it!
Chris O.
In lessons, Daniel makes you feel comfortable, all the while challenging you to improve and accomplish every goal you set out to achieve. He knows his stuff too. He can hold his own with equal confidence in the teaching and performance arenas. I once sat next to him as he delivered an unwavering and highly musical performance of all the exposed solos in Scheherazade in Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA to a PACKED audience. You owe it to yourself to grab lessons with him now while he's this affordable and available!

Much of my methods are derived from my doctoral dissertation studies in the field of Sports Psychology. I apply my teaching methods to develop and increase control of muscular and mental functions, accuracy, precision, discipline, mental awareness and overall coordination in violin performance. I am eager to share my knowledge and experience in sports psychology and to emphasize the general psychological benefits and contribution to human enrichment.

​My students earn numerous accolades, such as Concertmaster and title positions in the: Colburn Chamber and Los Angeles Youth Orchestras, Santa Monica High School Chamber Orchestra, Idyllwild Music Festival Symphony and Chamber Orchestras, Interlochen Music Festival, Honor Orchestra of America, and Santa Monica High School Symphony and Chamber Orchestra, Palisades High School Symphony; Grand Prize in the Fifth International Colibri Music Competition, Westside Committee of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Student Scholarships and ...

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.

Students will learn how to manipulate their voices, discover their own style, learn classical vocal training, as well as solfeggio as means for learning scales, arpeggios and improvisation and harmonization. Students should be prepared to bring in some songs they wish to learn to work on. Together we can discover other songs to further build their technique.

Nils is extremely knowledgeable and explains concepts thoroughly and patiently. He’s very much mastered both teaching and performing his craft and is equal parts artistic and technicality minded, a balance most of my previous creative instructors lacked, and one I believe plays an integral part in teaching a craft well.
Amy
Nils is fantastic! He provides very clear direction, is incredibly observant, is great at providing detailed assistance virtually, and our lessons are super fun!

I sing in international houses as an opera singer, and I would love to pass on everything that I have learned over my twenty years of singing onstage. I specialize in classical voice, but good singing technique is universal, and I would be very happy to assist you at any level, from the very beginner to the very advanced. My core vocal principals are breath, alignment, placement, and last but definitely not least, joy and love of music. I am also a pianist, and I can assist you with piano or music theory/ learning skills.

"Both of my sons started to learn piano when they were about 4-year-old. When Cole came to offer them in-person piano lessons (when they were 9-year-old and 5-year-old), it was like opening up a bright new window for our whole family to see the true beauty of music! I personally witnessed the dramatic progress they have made during their three years of study under Cole in terms of not only their technical skills but also their artistic interpretation and expression of the music. We were so sad to move out of Michigan because of my new job. But, he was so kind to connect us with a local pianist in Texas so we can continue to learn piano from a great teacher. During the pandemic when everything became on-line, we realized that we could go back to study piano with Cole remotely through advanced technology. Given our experiences with Cole through both in-person and on-line lessons, I would like to recommend this outstanding teacher to any parents who dream about high-quality piano lessons for their kids!"
