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!!!

She was absolutely fantastic with my 5 year old daughters first lesson. She had her smiling the whole time.....we are coming back next week for sure.
Nikki R.
My first vocal teacher and the best!

Ms. Rachel was an amazing vocal teacher! We would always start off with simple and fun warm-ups, breathing techniques, and would practice singing songs from musicals. My first couple lessons she taught me how to sing I Feel Pretty from West Side Story and we both had so much fun with it! After a little while we learned Cups from Pitch Perfect and then we got into the Vaccai book and I learned a couple songs from there. Overall Ms. Rachel was the best! She even offered to Skype a lesson with me since she moved. She cared about me and always helped me improve my voice in every way she could. I love her!

Let's do songs you love. The guitar is a big brown beautiful graph. We'll mix in scales and music theory that aren't boring to unlock the entirety of the neck. Including techniques I learned at Berklee College of Music.

"Ben is a great partner in pushing you on your journey toward better guitar playing. He knows theory and proper technique for those looking to improve their skills, and yet he also loves the classics that will get new players strumming and hearing sounds they recognize faster than they would learning from a youtube video. His knowledge, patience and kind disposition (not to mention his punctuality) make him a guitar teacher you want to stay with for years!"

"I am an “older” student and didn't start playing guitar until my mid-forties and have been learning from Tony for several years now. Tony is an exceptional guitar player. Although he specializes in Flamenco, he teaches all styles (we focus on classic rock and folk songs). He understands my needs, schedule, and what I want to accomplish with the guitar. I have given up illusions of being a "rock star", but still want to understand music (reading notes, keys, moving around the fret board, song structures etc.) and how to play a good repertoire of songs. I have steadily progressed. Where Tony excels is his knowledge of music, demeanor, and flexibility about what each lesson will cover. We have done formal classroom, in-house visits, and online over the years and learned classical (e.g. Bach, Beethoven), rock (e.g. Beatles, Clapton, Pearl Jam), and holiday songs (e.g. Jingle Bells, Deck the Halls). Great teacher with a lot of passion for music and desire to make sure his students learn and enjoy it."

"Matt has taught me SO much and I advanced so quickly in my playing! Matt taught me how to play the songs and styles I wanted to learn. He introduced me to new styles of music and playing to open my abilities up, and backed it up with the theory of what’s happening in the music I’m playing to understand it.

I became a better player, much tighter with my timing, turned my “chunky” picking into smooth, controlled, efficient, much better sounding playing. Matt helped me lock in to better timing (even different time signatures), and through the nuggets of theory he passed on - gave me the tools I needed to write MUCH better music! I started lessons with Matt to just “learn how to play guitar better”. I definitely got that PLUS a fun well-rounded music education too!

Matt is truly an inspiring teacher who is uber friendly and enthusiastic about teaching. His teaching makes you want to keep picking up the guitar as often as possible!"
