Very knowledgable and enthusiastic teacher. He has a way about him that makes the lesson exciting.
Yoella & Malkiya O.
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!!!

My philosophy on teaching revolves around the idea that on the foundation of instrumental technique and functional ear training, all other facets of music are made easier.
Developing instrumental technique teaches the student how to assess and target their weaknesses. This is necessary to make the process efficient. I work with students to create a plan so that they can develop quickly while practicing a reasonable amount. I know their lives are busy enough.
Functional ear training is a skill that not only makes playing music easier, but it also makes listening to music more enjoyable! This is a skill the student keeps for the rest of their lives, regardless of whether or not they continue to play their instrument as an adult.
For jazz music specifically, if the student wants to go down that road, I find it imperative to make sure the history of the music goes hand in hand with the craft of the music. The study of history gives greater context to the music we listen to, which ...

"I’m a classically trained violinist and I perform many different styles of music as a freelancer in Los Angeles, however I wasn’t a very confident improviser until I started studying with Rick. It always felt like I was shooting in the dark because I had no idea how to play within the chord changes, I was just relying on my ears. Rick has a very simple system that takes you step by step so it feels very manageable to learn and you feel like you’re constantly improving. It made sense from the very beginning and I started improvising with more control and confidence right away by applying his method to my solos. Rick is a world class musician and his knowledge of improvisation and jazz/blues is inspiring and very impressive. He has also played with so many huge acts and done virtually every kind of gig so he taught me a lot of practical advice that’s helped me get work and get hired again. I owe a lot of my success to Rick, and I cannot recommend him enough as a teacher and mentor!

Rick’s main instrument is saxophone and he teaches amazing jazz improvisation lessons so for anyone who wants to learn how to improvise, there’s no better teacher. If you want jazz sax lessons, I’ve heard some of his students and they are amazing players in a short amount of time. You would be wise to at least check him out for yourself."

"I am an adult student that just recently decided to take up playing the saxophone. I made a good choice with Ian. He is a very skilled player and instructor. I immediately became very confident in Ian's instructions and information he shared with me. He was very willing to take the time to respond to my many questions, which I really appreciated. And his curriculum was not based on some beginning student workbook, but instead, was geared towards real-life playing and preparation. Working with Ian has been a very positive experience. Thank-you."
