Always leave with new insight

I always feel he listens very closely to my frustrations and has a keen sense of where I am willing to take the next step of learning. He will never hold back but give great examples of where you can be and shows you exercises that bring those instant gratifying moments into the practice.

Asaf N.

Bayside, NY

About Asaf

I would not be the person I am today if music wasn't the focal point in my life as it is. Not only do I absolutely love performing and studying music myself, but I adore teaching as well. Part of the musical experience is taking what you hear and what you learn from others and building on it to create your own musical contributions. I take the gifts other teachers and musicians have given me very seriously and subsequently feel the great importance of imparting my knowledge unto others. Whether you want to be a professional, or just be competent enough to enjoy yourself, we all practice, study technique and gain knowledge about music with really only one goal in mind: To have all the tools necessary to express ourselves adeptly through music. All the technique in the world will not ...

Flexible teaching methods!

Asaf is just brilliant. During the first session, my son was very distracted by the other things in the music room ie lights, instruments etc but Asaf managed to engage him by being extremely flexible in his teaching ie he is not wedded to any order and has a lesson plan in mind but goes with the flow and the interest of the child - this ensures that all that was intended on being covered is, and as a result of the flexibility, my son just loves these drum lesson and Asaf. Asaf makes him focus and has built a great teacher/student relationship in only 3 session. I would highly recommend Asaf.

The Consummate Professional

Asaf has trained my son initially on a practice pad. Taught my son Quater notes, Eighth notes and moved on to the Snare Durm and worked his way up to 16th notes. He taught my son how to use wrist action, rather then his arms. The fact that ASAF travels to my home and instructs my son is definitely a plus. He is highly commmunicative and flexible.

My daughter has had only two lessons with Simona but the benefit is easy to see. There is a passion for excellence that is being instilled but keeping the lessons fun. This is hard to accomplish but Simona is doing it. She has been very cooperative and helpful in scheduling lessons. It has been a pleasure so far and I look forward to great reviews in the future. I highly recommend this teacher!

I am a professional pianist and a composer. I began to study piano performance and music theory at the Moscow Conservatory School at the age of 5. I have performed in Russia, US, and Europe; competed throughout my teens and young adulthood. When I turned 20 and began teaching my first students, and realized that teaching is very rewarding, and most importantly, that I have a lot of knowledge to offer. I am very enthusiastic about the accomplishments of all my students. Throughout my life I was blessed to have highly professional and dedicated teachers. So I expect nothing less from my own teaching.

Anybody studying with Nikita Sokolov will benefit from his early training in Moscow where he learned the foundations of the famous Russian piano school and from his musical education in the U.S.A. in the later years. He was, for several years while living in Los Angeles, a private student of mine, very talented and quite advanced already. Now he has several years of experience teaching students of all ages -from beginners to adults- and I recommend him highly!

I had lessons with Nikita for four years during high school. He is a great teacher who isn't afraid to push a student when he sees potential in them. He is very hard working and encouraging and he greatly improved my piano skills. He kept classes interesting and I really appreciate that he gave freedom when it came to what pieces I learned. I would definitely choose Nikita as a teacher again!

I am a self-taught guitarist, but I always loved classical music and wanted to learn how to play piano properly. My friend recommended me Nikita in 2010. Within the first year of our lessons I learned how to read music, learned a few simple pieces, and was getting ready for my first piano recital.
Despite my shortcomings, I accomplished much more than originally expected. Nikita was very patient and encouraging throughout. I studied with him for almost 3 years, and I definitely recommend Nikita to anyone who wants to learn piano in any genre.
