About Vasiliy
Hello,
I am Vasiliy M, Boston University School of Music Alumnus (DMA in Composition). We dwell in Boston since Fall 2002; before that time , we lived in New York, where I studied Composition at Mannes College, The New School For Music. I received both BM, and MM degrees from Mannes in 1999, and 2001, respectively. Before an arrival to US, in 1994, I studied Jazz Performance, Electric Bass Major, and Classical Composition, at Moldova State Conservatory, from 1988 to 1993, respectively.
I was raised in the family, where music is an essential part of its daily life; my father, Grigoriy, before his retirement, was a military band trombone player, and, quite naturally, I was exposed to music, and encouraged by my parents to learn playing an instrument of my choice, from my early childhood.
My mother, Anisia Kondrat'ievna,
possesses both beautiful vocal abilities and perfect pitch , although she has never had a chance to develop her natural gifts any further. But I have heard my mother singing, and these moments remain one of the most touching and impressive musical experiences, that I have ever received, and remember to this very day.
Only after a considerable life experiences, abound of trials and mistakes, at the age of twenty five, I have come to a clear realization, that music remains my greatest passion, and that I would have to become a professional musician. With help and support of friends and colleagues, I have entered Community College in Soroki city, Moldova Republic, where I have studied Choral Conducting for Amateurs. I have graduated from school in May of 1988, having written a few instrumental and vocal compositions of my own, and, quite unexpectedly for myself, was invited, that summer, to visit Moldova State Conservatory, with the prospect of audition for the Composition Major. After the meeting with the Chair of the Department, I was offered an opportunity to be accepted to the Master Degree Program in Composition, provided I will have completed two years of preliminary studies of Music Theory, Music Harmony/Voice Leading, and many other related disciplines.
Why do I bring all of these facts to this Essay? I know for the fact now, that I was not ready for what was awaiting ahead of me, back then. There was no way, that I could cope with the demands of Composition Program curriculum. But I have had love for music, that my parents have implemented in me throughout my childhood; I have had natural abilities, that Heavens supplied me with: and I have had a chance to make my dream a reality, providing I do everything that I will have to, during the following years of struggles and study.
The decision was made, and my studies have begun. I have come through every mistake, defeat, and mind-barriers imaginable, and if it would not be a continuous stream of professional help and support, that I have received from my numerous teachers, mentors, and professors, along the years of study, my goals could never be attained to any modest, but real degree.
Whenever I have a chance to teach, tutor, or assist other musicians with their study, my past experience always reminds me, that any person may experience some difficulties of various nature with the learning material, from time to time, and that those difficulties should be addressed by student's teacher with the highly individual approach, however time-and effort-consuming it may be. Patience and respect, in regard to the students, have become as important aspects of teaching to me, as those of discipline and professionalism.
My studies have come to an end; I see now, that the world of music is an endless entity, for it has no boundaries, and we all have to maintain our further progress, in order to move to our chosen destinations, and to help others with their own advancements.

Sincerely
Vasiliy M.

*** Lesson Details ***
I would be more than willing to assist my prospective students with their various musical endeavors, and people's willingness to either play music instruments,take voice lessons, or to study Music Theory/ Musicianship disciplines will serve us as a starting point for our work. Through the diligent preliminary talk we will discuss various aspects of interest that my students have developed in relation to music, so we could plan and design our future lessons according to an initial discussion. My job and responsibility will be to make an intelligent assessment of my students' natural abilities for the given subject of study, to create vigorous learning atmosphere during our meetings, and to give my students professional instructions to the best of my humble abilities, for the benefits of their musical , aesthetic, and personal development. I will encourage my students to learn as much as they can, at the given moment, but I will not ever attempt to exceed people's natural capabilities. Participation in Music with love and fun should be as rewarding and valuable to the music amateur, as professional performing career ( with its highly demanding standards) stands for classically trained musicians. During our study sessions, we will work upon the goals and tasks that we have discussed at the beginning of our meetings. My ultimate goal as a teacher was and will always be to help my students discover and bring forward their best creative potentials through the intensive musical studies and practice, and, at the same time, to favor heir initial interest's transformation into a deep, serious passion.

About Daniel
My name is Daniel B. I have my A.A. Degree and I am currently a junior at Washington University in St. Louis. I am majoring both in Psychology and Biology with a strong emphasis on counseling, research and medicine.

Since its founding in 2006, I have been involved Neighbor to Neighbor Outreach (NTNO), a non-profit organization whose goal it is to insure that the children, youth, and adults of inner-city St. Louis are provided tutoring for every imaginable subject.

My teaching style is quite simple and effective. I initially gauge the student's level of understanding of the subject or skill that he/she wishes to master. I then create a comprehensive learning plan which pushes the student to his/her limits while making the learning process both enjoyable and rewarding.

If you find yourself in need of my assistance, just let me kn
ow. I am able to work around your schedule and I am available to be contacted anytime.

*** Lesson Details ***
Initial Lesson:

- Subject understanding is determined.
- Necessary areas of improvement are determined.
- Preferred and/or most efficient study style is determined.
- Goals are set.

Each lesson will vary according to the student. As far as music studies are concerned, we will begin by ensuring mastery of the basics such as note recognition, chords, and correct fingering.

For each subject, the pattern will be similar. We will work on the basics and then we will progress commensurately.

Daniel was the perfect tutor for my son's prep for the GED. He was patient, prepared to help with test taking skills along with the actual content of the tests, and made himself available on a very short notice. In addition, Daniel is just a nice, respectful person that was a pleasure to interact with. I can not say enough. Highly recommend him!

Bronwyn is a gifted fiddle teacher with an uncommon ability to intuit what her students need and how they learn best. She teaches a broad range of students, including accomplished musicians, but I came to her as a 50-year-old with basically no musical background at all. As anyone who has tried this instrument knows, the fiddle has a learning curve that can be daunting to beginners. But Bronwyn managed to coax me to the next level and the next. She is deeply knowledgeable, patient and has an infectious love of the music. She makes it fun. My sense is that great musicians are not always great teachers. Bronwyn is both. I would recommend her to anyone.

We saw Neguine's profile and my daughter thought she would be a great fit. We were looking for new guitar teacher and were hoping to find a female one. Neguine's profile fit perfectly except one thing, location. The distance was not ideal but we thought we would give it a try and we have been happy that we did. Doing a later time in the evening helped with the drive and my daughter feels that Neguine will be a great teacher. Her background in music and interest in song writing were added bonuses for us. She has already been more helpful that our past instructor. She was quick to note that the strings on my daughter's guitar were not right for her and suggested a restringing that has made it much easier for my daughter to play. We have been very happy with the lessons. My daughter is 16 and has had lessons in the past but is still very new to the guitar. Neguine has been very supporting and encouraging. My daughter likes her.

About Mahir Can
Hi everyone! First of all I would like to tell you that my experience, education, and accomplishments in Western Contemporary Music was humbling and I have full confidence in myself that I can guide you to become self sufficient musicians in Pop, Rock, Jazz, R&B, with additional/optional flavours from East Mediterranean, to develop your ornamentations! We will have fun to create our own backing tracks to sing over, and solidify your internalisation on your desired musical genres!

I was born in Denizli, Turkey. My private teachers in Turkey were Timur Selçuk and Randy Esen. After receiving a degree in industrial design, I began his studies at Berklee, studying contemporary writing and production, and graduated with "Summa Cum Laude" honor.

I had performed at and arranged for seven Berklee Performance Center concerts, with both his
Turkish and Western music background. Additionally, I have also performed on campus recitals with my organic world fusion and Turkish music band "The Çay Party". With different versions of The Çay Party I have represented Berklee and Turkish music
in several different Northeastern University festivals and Turkish Consulate of Boston's receptions since February 2015. I was the leader of "Music of Turkey" sections in Berklee International Folk Music Festival in 2016 and 2017.

I won "Best Website Award" for the versatility of my portfolio and my presentation of it in 2017, and I received "Mediterranean Music Institute Achievement Award" in 2017 at the night of the Aynur Doğan concert which I arranged 3 of Aynur's songs.

In Berklee's Commencement Concert 2017, I was one of the 10 student arrangers and 3 male backing vocalists in front of 7.000 audience including honorary doctorate recipients such as Lionel Richie, and the Grammy President Neil Portnow. Additionally I had the honor to be chosen as the student to announce Lionel Richie.

Besides being a writer, arranger and producer, I am a vocalist who features Western contemporary music, Turkish classical, traditional, and contemporary music in my repertoire. I am able to sing microtonally, with knowledge of Turkish and Egyptian microtonal tradition. He plays bağlama, bass guitar, piano, guitar, and hand percussion.
