Very knowledgable and enthusiastic teacher. He has a way about him that makes the lesson exciting.

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!!!

About Jacob

I started playing piano when I was 5, guitar when I was 8, and I've been singing most of my life. I play in a band with two friends I've known since way back then - we wrote music then, and we still do now. I took guitar lessons until I was 12 or so, learned bass guitar and sharpened my skills thro

James P.
Hiring J.R. has been an incredibly uplifting, fun, and educational experience. A far better experience than I could have asked or hoped for. I’m learning! And excited for the progress, which does take an investment of practice, energy & time. He is extremely patient & flexible with how to cope with my needs (when possible) and super supportive: I’m almost 50 and paralyzed.

As corny as this sounds I’ve never known anyone with such a broad overall knowledge, experience and wisdom about music and instruments. If I have a question about my piano playing, or virtually any music question, he either has the answer or helps me find it if he doesn’t.

He is extremely knowledgeable and respectful and has more than earned my respect and gratitude.

Hiring him is one of the best choices I’ve ever made. The only regret I have is that I didn’t hire him sooner.

Love my 1st lesson. I learned so much in one day. Definitely looking forward to my next lesson.

Danielle Cooke has taught my two sons (aged 10 and 6) piano for over a year now, and we have been very happy with her. Having played piano for almost 15 years when I was younger, I have been looking for the right fit to start my children on their own music journey. Danielle was referred to us by a friend, and we have been so pleased to find someone who enjoys teaching children, and who can balance patience, humor, theory and skill in her lessons. She challenges my children in a warm and nurturing way, and in a way that draws them in to the music and gives them pride of their accomplishments. With these ages and two very distinct learning personalities, it is amazing to see how they both resonate with her teaching style and are learning at their own levels, and have come so far in a short time. She has many teaching tools in her back pocket, and an appreciation for classical, contemporary, and recognizable children’s music (an important mix for little ones!). I have caught a glimpse of her own talents and her students’ work at more advanced levels and can see Danielle’s impressive range of repertoire and expertise across a variety of styles. She has a gift!

My son is thirteen now and was taking piano lessons from her for more than four years. I am fond of watching him learn and grow his piano playing skills everyday. His teacher, Ms. Danielle, guides and polishes his skills while giving him new challenges continuously. Also, she is flexible with our expectations from my son and she makes the learning to play piano is fun. She is a great asset for the community and wish her all the very best.

The key to playing music is to have fun. Whether you are just starting out or if you have been playing for some time, you should have fun with your music. That’s the first lesson I learned when my uncle let me pick up his guitar. It took me a lot of practice to be where I am now, and I learn more about playing guitar every day.

While my main goal is to help you develop your skills and interests as a guitar player, I have a deep love for songwriting. You can learn so much just from hearing a well written song, and even if writing isn’t something you are reading interested in, I hope I can help you develop a deeper appreciation for the craft.

If you take anything away from these lessons I hope it’s this: everyone learns at their own pace. What you know and what you take away from a lesson will be your own, and it might not be the same thing that someone else takes away from that lesson. And no matter who you are learning from, have fun!

About Scott

Hi! My name is Scott, or Scooter, whichever you prefer. I’ve had a love for music since I was a little kid. When I was younger I would walk around the house whistling all day, despite my dad constantly asking me to stop, and the older I got it turned into drumming on whatever I could get my hands o

Are you uncertain on how to start practicing your instrument? Do you need guidance and direction or technique feedback? Read more to see if I'm the right type of teacher you're looking for!

I am a professional pianist/keyboardist with 20 years of playing experience. Teachers I've studied with include Crystl Baltazar, Dr. Yuni Kim, and Allison Franzetti. Presently, I perform for many musicals and local gigs in the US Tri-State area. In our lessons, we will cover material ranging from scales, to arpeggios, classical pieces, Broadway/musical theatre bops, anime/video game music, Top 40/pop tunes, or music that you want to bring to the table! (Jazz, not so much unfortunately. I'm not too great at jazz at this point in my career.) Curriculum is flexible, and dependent on your interests. Of course, we will focus on areas to grow and improve upon, and make sure to have mini goals we want to achieve throughout this journey.

Additionally, I teach VOICE, beginner flute, basic ...

"I studied clarinet with William Rappaport when I was a graduate
student in music education at Georgia State University. He may be the
most deeply musical person I have ever known. My sense was that,
though he was a performer of the absolute highest caliber, he was
equally passionate about teaching.
When I initially contacted Bill to schedule lessons, I explained that
I was visually impaired. I wanted to share this information with him
upfront in the event that he had questions or concerns about teaching
me. I remember him saying clearly, “I am aware of the possibilities.”
That was all I needed to hear to feel comfortable entering his studio.
Bill encouraged me to take on any challenge in the clarinet
literature that interested me. He used every possible metaphor he
could think of to communicate ideas that were more easily accessed if
you could simply look at the printed page. He was always warm and
friendly, but focused, never wasting one second of our time together.
Following my work with Bill, I attended The University of Michigan
where, though I was a music education doctoral student, I was
instantly welcomed into one of the clarinet studios. Bill’s creative
work with me played an enormous role in making that happen. Now, I am
a community college professor, teaching a variety of classes including
a studio class for instrumental music students. I often find myself
using the same examples Bill employed with me to help my current
students. I am profoundly grateful for his unyielding commitment to my
growth when I was a student of his."

I feel the difference is that every time when I ask my daughter to practice, she is readily to play. It is evident that she is growing interest in piano. She is starting to learn to appreciate the beauty of the music she is playing."
