I teach lessons to any grade/age group. I have an extremely open mind to teaching and music in general, so nothing goes out the door in terms of philosophy, however, I've come to realize that some methods work better than others. That said, I tailor my attention and focus as an educator to the needs of student I'm teaching in front of me. I don't consider the student who just walked out of the lesson or the student who is coming in next. I put my all in the student who is in front of me because I believe time is an essential asset to lessons. Also, every case is so uniquely different in terms of students and I take a good amount of time to calibrate the learning style of every student.

About Matt

I am passionate instructor who is fueled by seeing success in others. No other feeling is more fulfilling then seeing the growth of another human. I have been teaching private lessons in my own studio for about 8 years now. I've taught 7 marching bands and currently writing music for some with an

My first session with Jarod was great! Lots of great information, very focused session, and great experience in a very well put together studio. Jarod was also very welcoming and open to conversing about personal manners that influence my music experience. Even after our first session, I feel much more confident in mixing practices which I had not before. Looking forward to our future meeting and I would highly recommend Jarod as an instructor for anyone looking to improve their knowledge and practices in regard to production and mixing/mastering!

I’ve worked with Jarod over the past few months, and I can unconditionally say that he’s the real deal. He has an excellent command of the entire music production process and how to navigate the music industry; not surprisingly he’s now a signed artist. Unlike a lot of instructors, Jarod is a naturally gifted mentor who actually takes time to figure out and plan out the best way forward. He is willing to share any insight and experience he has with his students. If you’re thinking about learning music production, Jarod is the perfect mentor to help you get to the next level.

Matt continues to challenge me. His teaching methods are great - he doesn't just teach techniques, he immediately puts techniques to work by applying them to a song I would like to learn. He is also very good about explaining the reasoning behind certain techniques/habits.

Excellent. Didn’t need so much info about electric guitars since we’re just starting and have an acoustic guitar. Otherwise, excellent.

Matt was very thorough in determining my current skill level (which is basically beginner with some previous limited exposure to music and some self-taught cowboy chords). He asked me what I wanted to focus on and worked with me on beginning to change some bad habits/techniques that I had developed. Matt didn't just instruct, he EXPLAINED. I felt that the lesson was much more of a mutual discussion than a lecture/demonstration, which is a great thing. I felt very comfortable and believe that Matt's teaching techniques will help me achieve my goals.

Are you interested in learning how to play your favorite music on piano? Let's do it! As a full-time working musician in the Boston area, I bring my experience as a composer/arranger and music director. Over the past 4 years, I've worked with children, teenagers, college students, and adults returning to the piano. Although I grew up studying (and loving) classical music, I've also written and performed pop, jazz, celtic, and music theater, in addition to writing music for indie films. I believe in catering to the student's interests while providing a foundation in learning to read music notation, theory, and developing good practice techniques. Please feel free to send me a message if you think we'd be a good match. I look forward to hearing from you!

I decided to turn back to the piano in mid life and could not have done it without Tim. I reached out to Tim based on recommendations and quickly found him to be a fabulous teacher, with all the patience required to excel at instruction. I very much appreciate his insights and low key approach to our lessons. Our weekly lessons were an inspiration to push forward and accelerate my own learning. I highly recommend Tim for anyone interested in excelling in piano.

I started studying piano with Tim once a week in February 2015. I had not studied piano for 50 years and now I am a senior. I am thrilled that I returned to the piano after so many years. I have achieved a lot with him over the last 3 1/2 years. This is due to Tim’s excellent pedagogical techniques in piano study and his great patience. His explanations are extremely clear. Tim makes simplified versions of great pieces for me to work on, thus giving me even more motivation.

I was a professor for 43 years and I am very familiar with the skills that a teacher should have in any discipline. Tim has the really good skills that a piano teacher needs. I recommend him very highly.

My son took piano lesson with Tim for several years, because of a rave recommdation we got about him. My son had taken lessons previously with a teacher at his school, and I observed my son improving much more quickly through his lessons with Tim. Tim has a gentle teaching style, which combines effectively with his skills, proficiency, experience, interest in his students, and his obvious love of music. He was open and welcoming to any musical interest my son had, including different genres of music and even composing his own tunes! I recommend Tim enthusiastically and without any reservation.

"Paul is a fabulous instructor!! He is so enthusiastic about what he does and takes his time with our lessons. I have never felt rushed at a lesson and we always use up the entire hour. Paul is also very accommodating when it comes to the practice location. He adjusts his schedule to make it easier for me to commute to the destination of the practice. In addition, Paul picks up music very quickly, so any song you want to learn, he will write the notes down for you and teach you to play it! I highly recommend Paul as an instructor because he is very good at what he does."

"Dr. Olevsky is inherently able to discern between problems related to technique, versus those associated with internal barriers. He infuses his knowledge of sports psychology into his teaching, giving him the unique ability to address the mental roadblocks that prevent students from unlocking their maximum potential. Dr. Olevsky takes the time during lessons to advise students on how to overcome such barriers, providing them with guidance on how to consistently achieve peak performance. Dr. Olevsky not only possesses the extensive knowledge in musical theory and practice required for teaching students at the university level, but also the personality and temperament to mentor young musicians. Due to his genuine character, quick-witted humor, and sense of self-discipline, he is both well liked and respected by students. Needless to say, Dr. Olevsky is an exceptional violin instructor whom I hold in the highest regard."
