Manda S.

Billerica, MA

For my piano students, I prefer to teach only beginners as it is my second instrument. I give you the basic tools and practice techniques to succeed at the instrument. When a student reaches a point in their study I refer them to change teachers to and intermediate to advanced instructor to further their education.

About Manda

As a graduate of the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory and Boston University Metropolitan College, Manda has obtained a diverse education in performance and performing arts management. As a clarinetist, Manda has performed in Illinois, Alabama, Ohio, and Massachusettes as a soloist, chamber musician, and in large ensembles. Her performances have been well received for their diverse programming and superior musicianship and technique.

Manda began teaching clarinet and piano in 2008 while she was still in high school. She began with beginning and intermediate musicians and quickly received the op
portunity to coach advanced players at one of Illinois' top high school band programs. While studying in Ohio, she began teaching clarinet and piano at the Joyful Noise Neighborhood Music School. There she continued to have one of the largest studio classes of both instruments for two years. Currently, Manda continues teaching in Boston, MA through Takelessons and Musika as well as through her own personal network.

Outside of her performances and teaching, Manda has held positions as a fundraiser and administrator at the Verb Ballet company in Ohio, the Boston University Tanglewood Institute in Massachusettes, the Brooke Charter Schools in Massachusettes, as well as the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Using her skills learned in these positions, as well as from working with mentor Dr. David Cutler, Manda uses an entrepreneurial and logistical mind set when running Manda's Music. You will be met with a professional atmosphere and efficently run lessons and administration.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to have their at-home-work as well as practice techniques written out in a journal for their reference every week. We will begin working slowly so the student and I feel comfortable with each other, as well as with the instrument. Each student is different, so there is no timeline that is set to work from. We work at a pace that is comfortable yet continuously challenging for the student. Over all, Manda works to acheive her goal for students to gain an appreciation for music, and look forward to coming to lessons each week.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The lesson spaces include stands, pianos, and chairs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide pens, pencils, metronome, tuner, and small repair equipment. I expect students to bring their instrument (for clarinet only), assigned music, assignment journal, and specified instrument equipment (i.e. reeds, swab, cork grease, etc).

*** Specialties ***
Classical music, popular music, and beginning jazz.

Manda meets me where I am, without judgement, and provides the feedback I need to get to where I want to go. She is flexible and incredibly responsive.

Itai G.

Jamaica Plain, MA

As a person with years of experience working with children, I am patient and enthusiastic, and my main goal when teaching beginners is to inspire a continued interest in playing the piano. It is important for me to make the lessons fun, and therefore I am attentive to my students' needs, strengths, goals, and concerns. I incorporate ear-training into my lessons, emphasize the understanding of rhythm, and teach students to have a productive practicing ethic. I consider myself an encouraging person with a positive outlook, and feel that a child's self-confidence is an integral part of their learning.

For beginner students, I like to use method books and guide them through every step of the complicated process of learning how to read music. After several months, a beginner student will have learned how to count rhythm in a piece of music, identify notes in notation, play some basic scaled correctly, and would be working on a simple song or Classical piece.

For advanced students, I

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.

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.

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.

Elif C.

Framingham, MA

Understanding that every person has a different way of learning, my goal is to help my students develop in a way that they feel comfortable, safe and valuable.

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.
