Dor is an excellent drum instructor. He taught our 9-year old in home for 6 months and was terrific. Our son really advanced his speed techniques under Dor's instruction. We only stopped due to our son's broken arm and we look forward to resuming lessons with Dor as soon as possible. He's great with kids, punctual, reliable and a pleasant guy.

First lesson with Dor went great. Dor was very accessible for questions and gave me all the info I needed. My son came back very happy from his lesson and is very excited about playing the drums. Dor walked him out to the car, which I greatly appreciated!! Great experience so far!!

My piano students have ranged from age 4 to young children learnin

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.

Mia R.

Norfolk, MA

About Mia

I am a professional singer and actress with opera and musical theater credits. Singing is my passion! I love to sing, and I LOVE to teach others to sing! The human voice is the most natural instrument of all, and helping others to bring out the beauty of the natural instrument that lies within them is something to which I am very devoted. I like to make students feel comfortable and at ease in lessons, and you will find that I am very warm and friendly!

Every student is unique, with their own strengths, their own areas for improvement, and their own preference for certain styles of sing
ing. I can help you find what style makes your heart sing!

I have a broad range of credits, including the Broadway National Tour of Fiddler On The Roof with Theodore Bikel (Tzeitel understudy), and Off-Broadway in Fiorello (Marie) and The Rose Tattoo (Flora). Among my many regional credits are Oliver at the Chiswick Park Theater in Sudbury, MA (Nancy), Camelot with Noel Harrison at the North Shore Music Theater in Beverly, MA (Nimue/Guinevere understudy), and Is There Life After High School with Desi Arnaz, Jr. and Sharon Lawrence at the Burt Reynolds Theater in Jupiter, FL. I currently hold the post of Soloist at First Church of Christ, Scientist, Needham, and am a Guest Soloist for The Mother Church in Boston. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, and have received additional training with many renowned pedagogues, including mezzo-soprano Sondra Kelly, and coaches Arlene Shrut from the Juilliard School, Michelle Alexander with Boston Lyric Opera, and Roger Malouf with the Metropolitan Opera.

Ivy G.

Waltham, MA

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.

Elif C.

Framingham, MA

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.
