Iasonas & Odysseas A.
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!!!

Private Violin Teacher

For my beginning violin students, I have found the Essential Elements Series to be highly effective, as well as the Suzuki methodology. All lessons will typically start with scales/arpeggios and be followed with the selected piece(s) we have chosen together. All of my students will attest that I set clear and high expectations for every lesson, yet am very understanding, friendly and approachable right from the start. My goal is to provide every individual with the tools necessary for becoming a well-rounded musician, so that they too can share their love for music with others.

About Michael

Beginning his cello instruction at the age of 8, Michael spent the majority of his early years under the guidance of Nancy Hambleton-Torrente, current director of music for the Yorktown public school districts in Westchester county. During his undergraduate years, he attended Colgate University whe

Great lesson. Received good feedback on technique.
Ke C.
I had a great class with Michael. He is extremely experienced in teaching and he has a very focused teaching strategy. Definitely take his class if you are interested in cello.
Yemi A.
I have been taking lessons with Michael for over a year now. I've taken lessons before with other instructors (though not in cello). Michael is one of the best instructors that I have ever had. He instructs and challenges you to get better, while at the same time being patient with your development. It has been a pleasure being a student of Michael.

Online Violin Teacher

Do you want to play violin, but feel like it’s too late to start? Do you play already and want some guidance?

Learn to...
• Hold the violin comfortably
• Develop good pitch and rhythm
• Read music and understand theory
• Make the most out of practice time
• Have fun playing music!

We can work on whatever music you want. I will even make a special arrangement of that song you've always wished you could play so that it's just at your level. Whatever your musical abilities and knowledge, we can work together to get you where you want to be.

I have an M.M. in violin from Cincinnati Conservatory, and a PhD in ethnomusicology from UC Berkeley. I have performed in symphonies, Early Music ensembles, chamber music groups, and international folk dance bands, and I especially enjoy strolling violin. But my true passion is helping students like you have a rich and rewarding experience learning violin.

I look forward to hearing from you!

My training is classical, with an M.M. in violin from Cincinnati Conservatory. I believe that solid technique can give you a foundation for learning any kind of music. Althou

Both my daughter (7 years old) and I love taking violin lessons from Merav! She obviously has a passion for music and violin in particular, which you can't help but be inspired by. She puts much effort and thought into how to help each individual student progress, and is always very gentle and kind when offering suggestions for improvement. We look forward to our lessons every week!
Jerry
Merav Singer was the teacher for my class Basic Musicianship at UC Berkeley in the summer semester 2019. Merav was helpful, patient and skillful. I came to this class with no music background and English as a foreign language. Merav taught us in an appropriate way and pace so that we were all able to follow. I learned how to conduct the beat and how to sing, and basic elements of music such as staff and musical notation. The atmosphere of Merav’s class was active as she sang with us and used different musical instruments to help us understand better. I enjoyed her class not only because she took good control of the class with her passion and charisma, but also because Merav was very patient. She spent a lot of time after class explaining the material to me over and over again to make sure I could understand the concepts taught in a foreign language. I learned a lot during this summer and I am sure that anyone would enjoy learning information and skills from Merav.
Kelly
Merav is a gifted violin instructor for all ages and levels. Her insight into the mechanics of violin playing, and ability to create a series of steps to achieve even the more complex aspects of music making, continue to inform my own teaching and performance. Truly, the best teacher is one who gives you the tools to continue to learn on your own long past your studies, and Merav is just that!

This was my first lesson with Zeynep. I have had several Tutors over the past 4 years. Zeynep was ready for my arrival. She was friendly, yet very professional. She watched me play a short piece and was able to discern from that where I needed help. Zeynep was able to give me new tips on bowing and finger placement. I am certainly looking forward to my next a Lesson with Zeynep.
Addison/Lauren
My daughter had the pleasure of taking lessons with Zeynep this past summer in the PALS program in Aspen. She loved each week when it was lesson time. This is what Addison had to say, "She always would say the area I needed to work on nicely. I loved that she gave me knew things to learn at each lesson. If I didn't understand, she would keep encouraging me until I did." This was an excellent experience!
Bethany
A unique and special experience! My daughter always looked forward to her sessions with Zeynep. She has been her mentor for the past two summers at the PALS program. Once after a lesson my daughter told me that she was surprised how much better she played the song after her session with Zeynep. I love the way Zeynep engages with my daughter and brings out the best in her.
