About Itai
I graduated from SUNY Purchase with a BA in Studio Composition in 2007, and from Hebrew College with a Masters' Degree in Jewish Education in June, 2016. I have been working in after-school, Hebrew school, camp, and other supplementary educational settings for the past ten years. Most of my students are learning piano, and I also have a few Hebrew students. My Hebrew students are either studying for their bnei mitzvah, maintaining their conversational Hebrew, or learning for the purpose of competence of services or Torah study. My piano students have ranged from age 4 to young children learnin
g Classical pieces to teens learning to play the songs they like to adults working on their songwriting and improvisation. My strengths are improvisation, music theory and ear training, accompaniment of popular songs - rock, theater, pop, folk, etc.

Please feel free to get in touch and ask questions!

The review posted on my profile was from when I used my English name, Ricky.

Ricky is an amazingly creative and inspiring teacher.

Ricky has been teaching my daughter for last 5 years. My daughter is now 15 years old. She already played piano for a couple of years before Ricky started working with her and at that time was getting disinterested. We were looking for someone who would bring that interest and spark back into her playing piano. I was looking for a special teacher who can teach basics of improvisation and accompaniment to a young child. After talking with several potential teachers, we decided to work with Ricky.

Ricky has proven to be an amazing teacher for my daughter. He is patient, creative and able to adjust to the child’s needs. I was amazed when couple of months after my daughter started working with him; she was already improvising and playing really cool pieces of music. That kind of teaching has inspired my daughter to continue playing piano for the last 5 years. She has accompanied two of her friends singing at her school talent shows and graduation ceremony with encouragement and inspiration Ricky has provided her all along.

Ricky frequently encourages my daughter to pick her own songs she would like to work on. Ricky has a strong knowledge of music theory and has incorporated that in his lessons. I love that my daughter is learning music theory, improvisation, accompaniment and reading music all with the same teacher. It is not easy to find a teacher who is so creative to include all of these in his teaching method. I would highly recommend Ricky as a piano teacher for any age.

About Ronald
I am a conservatory trained (St. Olaf College BM, Peabody Conservatory MM) professional oboe player. I played for many years in the Boston Philharmonic Orchestral and am currently the second oboe in Symphony New Hampshire. I have free-lanced around the greater Boston area since 1987 playing orchestral music and chamber music professionally. I have also taught oboe students since 1987. Much of the teaching was through public school systems such as Newton, Natick, Concord and Shrewsbury. I have a room in my house dedicated to music. It has separate access from the rest of our house (our do
g and my own kids!) I do love sharing music with people of all ages. My students get not only advice on how to play the oboe but also a perspective of music history and theory in so far as it pertains to the music one is learning.

Mr. Kaye has been teaching my 11 year old daughter since mid June (6 weeks). He has great knowledge and has helped my daughter correct bad habits she picked up for past 2 years from her previous teacher. She has gained greater respect and understanding of Oboe.

Mr. Kaye is an incredible Oboist and is very easy going. He treats my daughter as budding talent and has patience. He encourages her and praises her. It is a pleasure to watch my daughter progress.

My daughter and I would highly recommend Mr. Kaye to anybody who wants to learn to play an oboe.

About Brandon
Hi! Thanks for checking out my TakeLessons profile. In the past 20 years of teaching, I've taught hundreds of students how to play the guitar, and I'm proud of every single one of them! Some have gone on to become teachers themselves, some have gone on to become successful performers, and all have developed a wonderful hobby to last a lifetime! Thanks to some of the wonderful teachers that I had the privilege of studying under; both as a young high school student, then later at the college level at Berklee and Umass, I've developed a broad range of influences to enhance my own music creativit
y, as well as to relate to the needs of students of all different backgrounds. I'm equally as experienced working with children, teens, and adults of all levels. I do have some experience working with people with learning disabilities such as adhd and Aspergers. I look forward to the opportunity to help you or your child learn the guitar, and answer all of your questions!

My son starting taking lessons from Brandon when he was 9 years old and continues to this day at age 14. Brandon keeps him thoroughly engaged and focused and easily tailors his lesson to his style of learning. He plays to his interests and teaches him songs from his favorite bands. He loves his rock camp in the summer where he puts together a band of musicians for the week. His passion for teaching is evident and his connection has been invaluable to my son's growth and confidence in music. I would highly recommend Brandon.

I have been taking lessons for about 4 1/2 years with Brandon and it could not have been a greater experience for me. I started at the age of 41 without ever playing guitar before. I now know how to play several songs and am able to do some singing also. I have always loved listening to music and to now be able to play songs, and to do it well, is all because of him. He is able to get the most out of his students with his teaching and making it a lot of fun.

About Ivy
Hi! I am Ivy, a passionate piano educator with international background in MA. I've been playing piano professionally for over 17 years and been teaching private class for 5 years. I have students age from 6 to 35, playing classical music or pop music. From preparing for national piano competitions to helping parents to explore their kids' interests in music, from preparing for attending conservatories auditions to teaching college professors to play for fun, I enjoy the process working with all kinds of students with various goals for learning piano.

---About Me---
I am born in a musician
family and have been eating/sleeping/doing everything in music. I've been trained professionally since age 4, and I was the top student admitted to Xinghai Conservatory, one of the top conservatories in China. I studied piano with professors from St Petersburg Conservatory (Russia), Brown University and Dartmouth College (US), and I've developed deep insights in music and professional system of learning piano.

Given my own experience, I prefer exploring one's passions and interests in music rather than training strictly, prefer experiencing the beauty of art rather than teaching/learning plain techniques.

---Lesson Details---

As your private instructor, I encourage you to play your favourite music pieces as well as the pieces I choose for you specifically in order to:

* Develop strong fingers
* Expand music expressions
* Better understand tempo and rhythm
* Learn music by ears
* Learn basic music theory

I can also provide the following as long as you want:

* Sight reading
* Aural training

You can tell me your goals and hopes in learning piano, share with me your favourite music, and I will offer you the most encouraging, inspirational, and systematic lessons designed only for you!

I encourage you to give your beautiful performances to others, either online or in public. I encourage you to explore various composers and their music. I can even explain music theory in mathematical and philosophical perspectives for you, because here I open you a door to a new music world!

---Pop Music---
Pop songs / Film music

---Folk Music---
European / Indian / American / Chinese / Japanese / Korean etc.

---Classical Music---
Bach / Beethoven / Mozart / Debussy / Tchaikovsky / Haydn / Rachmaninoff

And there is more...:)

---My Place---
University practice room with Steinway Piano!

---Travel Lesson---
Please provide your piano or digital piano.

Tell me more about your goals and requests and let's rock the music together!

Ivy is very patient and fantastic teacher. one month ago, I wanted to play a song to surprise my fiance at her birthday party, so I reached out Ivy. Even though I didn't have any experience in playing piano before, Ivy helped me set achievable goals. She taught me step by step and how to interpret the music. She has her own method to teaching the beginner. So far, I have been able to perform a song without any pausing. If you are a beginner, I definitely recommend her as a piano teacher.

About Elif
I've had over 8 years of teaching experience with all ages and levels. I believe that everyone has a different way of understanding therefore I follow a different lesson plan for each person. The most important thing for me is that my students feel comfortable and safe in the lessons to experiment anything that they want to. Understanding that there's no such a thing as wrong but there's always better ways to develop ourselves.

About myself: I'm a Berklee College of Music alumni, singer and oboe player. I also graduated from Istanbul Conservatory as an oboe principal and piano as my seconda
ry instrument and Bahcesehir University as a jazz singer and saxophone player. I was lucky to collaborate and perform with some incredible musicians such as David Liebman, Terrence Blanchard, Dream Theater, Guinga, Antonio Serrano and work with Kevin Mahogany, Amy London, Jane Monheit, Nancy Rumble, Jean-Luc FIllon, Caris Liebman.Had to chance to tour around Europe and South America with two different projects that I've had.

Guitar Theory Basics: Understanding Keys
Curious about keys? Guitar teacher Alexander A. breaks down the guitar theory behind understanding keys... What key am I in? For most of the music we play this simple question yields a simple answer. I think the REAL question here is “why.” Why is a piece of music considered to be in the key of G major, or A minor, or any other key? I was in my 3rd semester of Jazz Harmony at Berklee when the instructor stumped the entire class with this question. I think the answer will surprise you. The
