Very knowledgable and enthusiastic teacher. He has a way about him that makes the lesson exciting.

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!!!

Private Saxophone Teacher

I am a young saxophonist, just 18 years old. I play at a very high level, despite my age. I am currently in Hofstra University's Jazz Ensemble, studying with a jazz great, Dave Lalama. In highs school, I wasa given All-State recognition for classical and jazz music. I also won the most prestigious award at a jazz festival in Boston during my senior year of high school. I can give insight to new, modern jazz nuances that not many people would know. Also, I can teach the basics of jazz to anybody that is interested in learning how to play this wonderful style of music. Although jazz is my main area of interest, I am more than able to teach classical music as well. I have a very strong background in classical music. I am a versatile teacher, and I am ready to help any student that decides to work with me.

I want to help you play from your heart. Music is a magical part of life, and I can help you learn how to play music that people want to hear. I will show you how to conquer the mechanics of the process so that you can focus on the beauty and joy of the music.

Music can also integrate our mind, body and soul. I work with students on all levels. We will break thinks down into manageable bits and bring it back together and synthesize it into a whole.

As a Waldorf teacher I have years of experience of helping students breath life into their music.

"I returned to saxophone after not playing for years, and at the recommendation of a local player took lessons with Mike. Mike's a great player, but more importantly, he's a great teacher. He's made a study of teaching wind instruments and can really help identify technical issues. Working with Mike on improvising and jazz phrasing and articulation has been really fun and productive for me, and has improved my musicianship in other areas (I'm mostly and upright bassist). I haven't had a sax lesson for a little while, but I recently got a clarinet and I'm back with Mike. The lessons are, as always, rewarding and enjoyable. Highly recommended."

"Kareem is a dedicated and diligent musician and teacher. He is able to share his love of music with students of all ages. Not only is he extremely capable of teaching students the technical aspects of music, but his lessons incorporate a wider perspective as well, such as, listening to different genres of music and asking his students to discuss what they hear. He is always positive and encourages students to do their best. He has style and class and it is a privilege that two of my children can study under his tutelage."
