Oliver E. Brooklyn, NY

I've worked with my theory/composition students on DAW sessions and currently record a wealth of my own material in various genres so I could easily pass myriad insights on to someone looking to increase their recording chops.

About Oliver

Hi, I'm Oliver Devine E, a professional musician currently residing in north Brooklyn. Check out my personal website here: odearts.com I graduated from NYU in 2005 with a degree in theory and composition (after completing 2 years as a jazz performance major). I played in the rock bands Arpline and The Kiss Off and recorded for Universal Records with the super group Pure Love. I currently record and perform under the monikers Aeolian, Negation, Afterworldsmen, Sandglass and Marlowe Dies as well as performing live with the post-punk band Cloak. I've been teaching both piano and music theory lessons since 2006 and have had great success with students, several of which I have forged mentor-student relationships with. With my vast knowledge of esoteric and popular music genres (I'm ...

I've been taking piano lessons with Oliver for about a year now, and in just one year, my love and ability to play piano has surpassed my expectations. Oliver creates his lesson plan based on the individual's needs, and adjusts his teaching to match the students capacity to learn, making for a fun, relaxed, and comprehensive lesson each time.

Oliver has helped me not only understand theory, which helps with composing music, but also how to read and play sheet music. Like anything, you only get better with practice, but having a great teacher to guide you along the way makes all the difference.

I would recommend Oliver to any individual seeking to enhance his/her ability to play, read and/or write music, whether you are a beginner or an advanced musician.

Composition · In studio
I started piano lessons with Oliver many years ago. His deep knowledge of music spurred my intellectual curiosity in music, impulsing me to study composition with him. In three years, he has had the patients and knowledge to prepare me to the point of being top of my composition class at The Juilliard School's Evening Division. He is kind and adapts his classes to everyone's need.
If you are serious about playing the piano, then I would highly recommend him.

Oliver is great! I took lessons with him for several months and learned so much. he is kind, smart, patient, fun to chat with, and exacting and will push you to practice and reach beyond your comfort level. he is able to explain music theory clearly to people at all levels and would actively help me try to find pieces that I would be interested in playing, like the Twin Peaks theme or how to play Brian Eno's "On Some Faraway Beach" on piano. I'm so grateful I found him when I did and I give him my most enthusiastic recommendation.

Hes really good, i suggest taking the 45 minute lesson so it gives both you and him time to teach you new skills and practice. but expect to work, during the lesson and after the lesson practice practice practice.

Eric is the best when it comes to learning how to sing, He tries different techniques with you until you show improvement, and makes sure you yourself know why your doing those techniques and how they help you improve and he doesn't let you leave without learning something new in every lesson, taking classes with him, you can guarantee your voice will improve better with every new lesson and he's an awesome guy to talk too

I only have had one lesson with Eric but plenty of interactions. He has been incredibly flexible trying to coordinate lessons with my busy schedule and is really relaxed while teaching. It was easy to be comfortable singing, which I think is an important quality for a singing teacher to have. Thanks a lot Eric! :)

my experience

Tom really knows his way around a bass. Each time I go for a lesson, i leave happy about the things we've accomplished in the lesson. Anything that i would like to learn Tom makes it possible for me to do so. I started getting lessons in order to not slow down on my playing. With my schedule constantly changing Tom has been very nice at accommodating when possible.

Christopher G. Brooklyn, NY

I have experience recording in my own home studio as well as in professional studios. I have experience with interface setup, microphone placement, plugins, music software, etc. and can help you make your own quality music without spending lots of money at expensive studios.

About Christopher

In my years of teaching and being taught I have realized that the best teachers are those who really focus on the needs of the student and help them realize their passion for playing music. This usually involves a lesson plan which combines both technical aspects and working on songs, so that the student is both working and having fun at the same time! *** Travel Equipment *** I can provide music, music stand, amp, etc. I expect a student to have their own instrument, although I can supply one of my instruments for lessons. *** Specialties *** I can teach from beginner to very advanced on guitar, bass guitar and upright bass in the styles of Rock, Jazz, Blues, Pop, R&B, Hip-Hop etc. I also have experience in other subjects such as Logic Pro, Composition, Music Theory, Djembe. ...

Chris is an awesome teacher. He adapts the lessons entirely to you as individual - letting you pick the songs you want to learn & the pace you want to learn them, meanwhile giving you enough structure to make substantial progress.
Isaac J. New York, NY

I have produced and recorded professionally for more than 10 years, and have created music for film and network Television, as well as professionally distributed pop music and jazz.

Recording is an art of its own, and requires the same training and focus as any musical instrument. From Garage Band to Logic, Protools to Fruity Loops, I work with my students to build all the necessary skills to work with professional recording software and hardware.

About Isaac

Cited by All About Jazz as a musician with "all the groovy elasticity necessary to encompass the melodic complexity of compositions," Isaac is a strong voice among a new generation of musicians. Discovering a love for the piano, guitar, and bass in his youth, Isaac began performing in coffee shops and jazz clubs at the age of 15, quickly becoming one of the most sought-after young musicians in Westchester County. While still in high school, Isaac had the opportunity to study with jazz legend John Patitucci. Isaac's selection for New York's prestigious All-State Festival came as no surprise. Isaac graduated from New York University's undergraduate jazz program in 2009, where he studied with many seminal jazz musicians including Ari Hoenig, George Garzone, Kenny Werner, Jean-Michel ...
