Oliver E. Brooklyn, NY

I started my collegiate career at NYU as a Jazz saxophone major, blowing my alto around town and even getting on the school recording for that year with multiple solos. I own a high end Selmer and feel very comfortable teaching the instrument and its subtleties to beginner and intermediate students.

About Oliver

Hi, I'm Oliver Devine E, a professional musician currently residing in north Brooklyn. Check out my personal website here: odearts.com I graduated from NYU in 2005 with a degree in theory and composition (after completing 2 years as a jazz performance major).

I've been taking piano lessons with Oliver for about a year now, and in just one year, my love and ability to play piano has surpassed my expectations. Oliver creates his lesson plan based on the individual's needs, and adjusts his teaching to match the students capacity to learn, making for a fun, relaxed, and comprehensive lesson each time.

Oliver has helped me not only understand theory, which helps with composing music, but also how to read and play sheet music. Like anything, you only get better with practice, but having a great teacher to guide you along the way makes all the difference.

I would recommend Oliver to any individual seeking to enhance his/her ability to play, read and/or write music, whether you are a beginner or an advanced musician.

Composition · In studio
I started piano lessons with Oliver many years ago. His deep knowledge of music spurred my intellectual curiosity in music, impulsing me to study composition with him. In three years, he has had the patients and knowledge to prepare me to the point of being top of my composition class at The Juilliard School's Evening Division. He is kind and adapts his classes to everyone's need.
If you are serious about playing the piano, then I would highly recommend him.

Oliver is great! I took lessons with him for several months and learned so much. he is kind, smart, patient, fun to chat with, and exacting and will push you to practice and reach beyond your comfort level. he is able to explain music theory clearly to people at all levels and would actively help me try to find pieces that I would be interested in playing, like the Twin Peaks theme or how to play Brian Eno's "On Some Faraway Beach" on piano. I'm so grateful I found him when I did and I give him my most enthusiastic recommendation.
Jefrey B. Brooklyn, NY

I've been playing sax for 16 years now with a focus on blues and rock. My strength is TONE! Getting a strong sound so the world can hear your music! I play tenor mainly but also play alto and soprano.

About Jefrey

I am a working multi instrumentalist here in Brooklyn, New York. I've played guitar and bass for 33 years now and have been playing saxophone now for that last 16 1/2 of those lovely years. Most of my gigs are saxophone gigs now and I love that though I do love to play my strings too! I'm largely self taught though have had the good fortune to study with some terrific players including Tim Price. I have a lot to offer a beginning student and my focus is on improvisation be it blues, jazz, rock n roll or whatever freaky style you can dream up! My approach is relaxed, fun and supportive. We'll laugh a lot while we play our horns together! Fun is essential to music and life, that's the vibe!!!

I took guitar lessons with Jef a few years ago at his shop. He was always a very patient and attentive teacher. He also asked me a lot of questions about what kind of music I was interested in playing, what aspects of a particular style were interesting to me. There was one very memorable lesson when he had picked out some records he thought would relate to what I was learning and played them for me. We listened and talked about them and then played some more. Jef's teaching was well rounded and very enriching. More than just improving technically, I was encouraged to figure out what aspects of the instrument I related to most, and thereby was able to develop my own sense of style.

Jef is a fantastic music instructor--period! Jef is one of those rare individuals who is an amazing creative artist AND teacher. Learning from Jef is a beautiful experience--he couldn't be more a more genuine and down to earth person and he has a wonderful gift to be able to impart musical skills and concepts to his students in a way that is unique and individual to each of his pupils. I've had the privilege of studying with Jef for a number of years and can't recommend him highly enough to anyone interested in pursuing Guitar, Bass Guitar or Saxophone instruction. It doesn't matter what your skill level is, you will learn and grow with this guy. He's a seasoned veteran performing and recording musician in many different styles and he knows how to connect with his students. Like a doctor, he diagnoses each student and situation and prescribes just the right medicine to make things move in the right direction. Look no further people, study music with Jef and you'll be happy you did!!!
Matt L. Brooklyn, NY

My goal as a teacher is to provide an in depth understanding of the instrument to my students. Whether we are learning technique specific to the instrument or general musical concepts, it is important to me that I take the time to insure that my students not only learn how to do something, but also the reasons why we are learning a specific concept or technique. At the end of the day, my ultimate goal is to teach you how to teach yourself, so that you may enjoy playing the instrument outside of our lessons together.

I prefer not to conform to a specific teaching style, because every student is different, and I have been fortunate to have a great variety of types of students throughout my years as a teacher. Some of my students are children and adolescents who are looking to pursue music when they go to college or auditioning for state and regional band programs. Many of my students are very busy adults who are either looking to pick up an instrument for the first time as an ...

Excellence!

Matt La Von is the epitome of a great teacher. He is patient, allowing you to understand things on your own time. His instruction is clear and easy to understand and his knowledge of music seems to be endless. Above all else he is an accomplished musician and I trust that under his watchful eye I will be able to improve and refine my own abilities.
Julie P. Brooklyn, NY

I am a student focused teacher who believes that each student learns differently. I focus on the foundations of music theory, as well as healthy practice habits in order to help my students succeed in any musical setting. I can help you get started on an instrument, improve your current abilities, work on school band and orchestra music, prepare for festival and solo auditions, prepare for college auditions, or just find great enjoyment in playing.

I pack a lot into each lesson making sure we address things such as: posture, theory, accuracy of rhythm, note reading, warm-ups, scales, etudes, solos, musicality, composition, interpretation and technique. For saxophone I also address reeds, mouthpieces, embouchure, tonal conception and listening to great players.

My 5-year old daughter took violin with Julie and our experience was excellent.

She is incredibly patient and encouraging and has a comfort level with teaching that comes across very naturally. Each lesson was also well-structured and productive while remaining fun (which is important for a little one!).

I was constantly impressed with not only her expansive musical talent, but with her keen eye in observing all the little details as well.

Highly recommended!

Julie is wonderful. She is very intelligent and accomplished but somehow manages to put me at ease. I enjoy the lessons, it isn't work. For someone so young she has acquired amazing people skills, she is a natural born teacher, a great musician, and she loves what she does. Her knowledge of music and teaching will never cease to impress me. She is dedicated and gives you 200%. But she remains very human and easy to feel comfortable with. A consummate professional, with a healthy sense of humor, who is never impatient or insensitive, she is perfect. I highly recommend her to students of all ages and at all levels.
