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 Ethan R.

Close
Philadelphia, PA

View Full Profile

Playing a brass instrument is a physically demanding, high concentration activity that can lead to immense joy and fulfillment when approached correctly. I offer all my students practical and musical ways to master the trombone that will lead to life long enjoyment. I will equip you with fundamentals for healthy practicing and can offer lessons in several styles, including jazz, classical, and salsa. Additionally, I have helped students prepare for school, district, and regional auditions.

About Ethan
Whether I am playing salsa, solo classical piano, in a jazz ensemble, or a concert band, I am ALWAYS having fun doing what I love, and I want you to have the same experience. After moving to Philadelphia ten years ago to study at Temple University, where I received my Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance, I have had many great opportunities to play all types of music with all types of people. While my passions are in jazz music, composing, and arranging, my varied experience helps me pass on the fundamentals necessary to becoming a great musician while also adapting to your goals, needs, and musical preferences.

*** Lesson Details ***
I want you to have a fun, loving relationship with music. I aim for students to leave each lesson eager to practice and explore, and to come back with questions and stories of their progress. In each
lesson, I balance technical skills, ear training, and music theory to assure that each student walks away a complete musician, all structured around your musical goals.

I look forward to helping you on your musical journey.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student must provide their own instrument and assigned method books. I will provide a music stand if necessary, and other useful instructional tools (metronome, tuner, etc.)

*** Home Studio ***
I offer lessons in my home located just off of Broad Street in South Philadelphia near the Tasker-Morris subway stop. I am equipped with a well-playing upright piano and plenty of space for musical activities. There is ample street parking in the area during the afternoon and early evening, and our living room is available to parents while students take their lesson. Students who travel to me for lessons gain all the benefits of performing on a piano, rather than an electric keyboard, and have access to many more resources that I am able to offer from my home, such as recordings and method books.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize teaching younger students fundamentals in music in a fun and exciting way, as well as teaching the importance of learning music to exceed personal and educational goals.

We (me and my 6 year old daughter) have taken piano lessons for more than 1 year now, and it has been amazing experience for both of us. He is very knowledgeable, patient and enthusiastic music teacher. We had no experience to start with, but now both of us are comfortable with the instrument and the music notes. He is very flexible with his teaching style to accomodate personal preferences and levels.
I would certainly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn piano.

Both me and my daughter have been taking piano lessons from Ethan since last 8 months. He is an amazing teacher and has proved beyond doubt, that he can teach music to a person of any age. He is very adaptable to our specific goals and works alongside, as per our capacity to help us achieve what we intend to. I had no experience with music or piano whatsoever before this and started the lessons to learn a new skill. Over the months, I have not only developed interest in piano but also been able to play with confidence. I had experience with couple of more teachers before we got him, and he is certainly the best. Would highly recommend him.

Trombone is, and should be, FUN. It's my main instrument, and I have 20 years of experience: both my Bachelor's and my Postgraduate Diploma are in Trombone Performance. If you want someone who knows the instrument inside and out, who can help you with intricate technical issues, and who is well acquainted with trombone repertoire and how our instrument is used in different styles and ensembles, I've got the knowledge and the skills -- and I'll do it all in a way that helps you LOVE playing.

About Holly
My 20 years of musical experience taught me that JOY is as important as knowledge and technique. We'll pursue a learning trajectory that suits you and your goals (large or small!), all while providing you with the encouragement to enjoy the process as well as the results. My teaching style is dynamic and positive; I want you to look forward to your lessons. And I have both the teaching and performing chops to challenge you and impart some serious skills.
I have my Bachelor of Music from the Peabody Conservatory and a Postgraduate Diploma in Trombone Performance from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, England. I've taught a wide range of students -- from children who've never before picked up an instrument, to accomplished high schoolers, to adults who've always wanted to learn and finally have the freedom to do so.
I enj
oy helping people as much as I enjoy performing, and I'd love the chance to inspire and encourage you however I can.

Holly knows how to motivate her students and lays out clear goals and practice routines that her students can easily follow. I can count with one hand the number of days my son took home his trumpet for practice during the past two years. This changed dramatically when he started taking lessons from Holly. He has been practicing trumpet every day since, even during our drive to the Tanglewood concert! Three lessons in, I feel that he has already accomplished more in 15 days than what he has achieved in the past two years in his middle school band. The only regret that I have is that we did not start this sooner!

Music is a journey. As my student, you will learn more than just the fundamentals of trombone playing and music reading. My goal is to give you the musical skills and knowledge that will put you on the road to becoming a true musician able to perform with confidence in any style or situation.

About Gary
I have been serving the young people of my community for the last 36+ years as an elementary school music teacher. I graduated from Cal State University Fullerton with a BA in Music Education and a K-12 teaching credential in music. I have taught a wide range of music classes including general music, choir, piano, orchestra and band. My classroom experience includes early childhood (K-5th grade), english learners and special needs students.

I enjoy working with students who have had limited musical knowledge or experience. I love bringing them to a level of proficiency where they can be confident performers on their chosen instrument. Some of my students have continued their music education through college and others have brought their love of music into their careers as adults.

I realize that I not only teach music, but I teach ind
ividuals. So I tailor and fit my music instruction to the unique aptitudes and needs of each child. I want to communicate the fun of creating music as well as the technical aspects of playing an instrument. You can expect your student to gain a solid foundation in the fundamentals of music and instrumental technique. I offer private instruction for students who wish to learn the trombone or the violin. I also advise and assist parents in choosing a serviceable instrument for their student to rent or own. This has been a real help to several parents and families over the years. Contact me for more information. I’d love to be of help.

Mr. Gary has been teaching our son trombone for a few months now and we have been delighted with his teaching.
Mr. Gary is very patient with our son, and has ignited a real love of the instrument and given our son confidence. He never gets short and is always calm and encouraging, even when our son is not into it at all.
He teaches the fundamentals of breath, playing musically and how to take care of the instrument.
Mr. Gary is always encouraging and positive, and that helps to encourage a love for the music and instrument. Our son has definitely taken to the trombone and a lot of that is due to Mr. Gary's great teaching.

Experienced trombone teacher of 5 years. You will receive quality instruction catered to the individual from a professionally trained teacher. Not only will you learn excellent trombone technique, but other musical skills as well, like ear training and music theory. I look forward to working with you!

About Justin
I am a professional trombonist. I graduated from Lawrence University with a Bachelor of Music, and from the Boston Conservatory with a Master of Music

Students can expect to improve in the week to week in brass fundamentals: tone, musicality, time, and intonation. I encourage individual expression while exploring these basics, eventually helping create a student's unique sound.

As a professional artist, I've played with a wide variety of ensembles. I am equally at home in the classical, jazz, and pop worlds. I love to mentor students who, like me, enjoy playing a variety of different styles and genres. My personal passion is contemporary music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
