Every student has their own way of learning, and I will find that way! The beginner is brought through the traditional, classic method. But then I branch into modern styles, helping the student to find an original voice and perform music that resonates with today's listening audience. Together, we will explore American music that brings the intermediate and advanced student to understand blues and jazz improvisation, as well as composition.

About Paul

Motivation to practice is the key. Working with the parents, I like to make the lesson fun for the student, while getting the student to work hard and to keep them focused on success. Both current and former students and their parents are eager to provide references. I've taught all ages; in mu

As a violin teacher, I focus on two core concepts: having an idea of what you want to create musically, and figuring out how to create it. Playing the violin is learning to combine creativity and emotion with logic and practicality. For every piece of music I teach, I guide students to access their inner musical creativity (something I strongly believe everyone has!) in order to have ideas on how they can express the music in an effective and impactful way that makes sense, and to figure out what kinds of emotions they can bring out through the piece. I then give structured step-by-step instruction and guidance to gain the technical abilities and fundamentals needed to bring their ideas to life through the violin.

About Brian

I have been a performer and teacher based in New York since 2005. I received my Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from The Juilliard School, an Artist Diploma from Yale University, and a Doctor of Musical Arts Degree from Stony Brook University. My experience as a teacher includes having been

I have had many coaches and teachers over the year and often they fell into either of these two categories:
- Very analytical, lot of focus on technical issues, but rather dry and uninspired musically.
- Very emotional and inspiring, wonderful performers themselves. But they struggle to be helpful when I encountered technical roadblocks.

Prof. Bak was the first teacher I have had that somehow managed to have the best of both worlds. An extremely sensitive musician who feels the music deeply and is able to transfer that inspiration to his students; while at the same time, he is incredibly patient and analytical when needed to assist students with their technical issues or musical understanding (such as harmonic structure, or historical background of the pieces).

Absolute gem of a musician/teacher to find!
Younghee
Dr. Bak taught both of my sons for several years. Every lesson had a goal, and he always gave clear instructions to reach those goals. My sons improved very much from working with him, and came to appreciate music more! He also helped write very helpful recommendation letters for them when they were applying for colleges. Thank you Dr. Bak, you're the best!
Lisa
I’ve had Mr. Bak as my violin teacher from my elementary school years to now! He explains everything until I clearly understand and I always look forward to the lessons during the week. In the end, the pieces I play always puts a smile on my family and friends. Every year I saw growth and my violin skills improved more and more. I cannot believe how much I have grown from the lessons that I have taken!!

I am an experienced teacher, active and accredited member of the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), and have experience in a variety of settings from standard private lessons to university pre-college faculty positions to summer festivals and intensives. I welcome any and all levels of pianists with the end goal of providing quality music education across the board. Whether you are hoping to go into music professionally or not, I believe that any approach to the keyboard deserves the highest level of teaching on my part. This is why my lessons are not simply 30/45/60 minutes a week but an ongoing partnership where I offer guidance and support as you explore what it is that you want within the wide and wonderful field of music. Whether this entails a professional opinion on an instrument, a safe place to express yourself, or a starting point for your artistic digital portfolio, it is my belief that our community can and will help you achieve whatever it is you set out to do.

I started taking lessons with Tracy a few months ago after many years of playing with bad habits and technique, and I've been making big improvements from day one. She's incredibly patient and fun, and I'm certain she is a great instructor for children as well. I cannot recommend Tracy highly enough.

My 7 years old daughter has developed a passion for playing Piano since she started learning with Ms Tracy Wong. Tracy is very energetic, talented and wonderful teacher.
You will not regret to take her lessons.

Awesome online lessons' experience with Tracy. Vibrant teaching and effective interaction! Now my daughter loves playing piano and practicing more every day. In addition, the bonus is her excellent notes to students for after-class use. Clear structure and highlighted key points so as to follow up easily for daily practice.

Stephanie is fun to learn from and knows how to grow your vocal strength and ability! She also has a lot of insight and desire to help you sing in a healthy way that preserves your throat, while still producing a good sound. She’s also well rounded in singing styles and abilities; I definitely recommend taking lessons from her
James
Because of the pandemic, I decided to venture way out of my comfort zone and try something new:
Singing .....for the very first time in my life.
I did an Internet search, and it turns out the universe was very good to me. I discovered Stephanie.
She is a beam of energy and positive light… That makes everything fun, interesting and exciting. She has a knack for mixing physical, mental and technical intricacies of music, voice and sound… with the ability to deliver it in a succinct, understandable package… that even a complete novice like me was able to digest, and to my surprise, eventually execute.
Personal discovery can be a very exciting event. This was certainly no exception. I have Stephanie to thank for this one!
I would highly recommend her for anyone searching for a music or voice teacher.
Next up… Piano. My teacher… well, Stephanie of course!

Music is a universal language, and it is for everyone.
I believe in a fun and safe learning environment, and my goal as a teacher is to have the student leave the lesson feeling inspired, encouraged, and connected. I was touched by music at a young age, and it remains to be the most amazing, and the most positive force in my life, and it's been truly rewarding to be able to share this magic with aspiring musicians.
Throughout the years, I helped many of my students develop a strong bond with music. Many of them have succeeded in school ensembles and became award winning soloists.
Upon graduating from high school, some have moved on to pursue music in college and beyond, while some of them continue to enjoy playing as a hobby : )

About Masaru

We all need music - now more than ever, as we live in this unprecedented times. My name is Mas and I have been serving communities around the world as an active musician and a music educator for over 20 years on saxophones, flute, and clarinet. I have been teaching private lessons as well as improv

Rick Jacobs
As a language teacher, I was looking for a clarinet/saxophone instructor with excellent communication skills and the ability to teach musical technique in an empathetic way. I was lucky to find Masaru Koga in Cupertino, California.

I enjoyed weekly lessons for about three years and really reached the point where I was constantly improving my clarinet mastery and getting closer to my performance goals. At one point, I became so enthusiastic, I also began saxophone lessons with Masaru!

I looked froward to meeting him for my weekly lessons and felt he gave more than 100% in patience, encouragement, and musical technique. He has a very warm, giving personality and when we were together, I made great progress and was very motivated to study and practice on my own.

I enthusiastically recommend Masaru Koga to other music students and wish I could be his student again!
Lorette
Encouraging and attentive, with a relaxed style of teaching. My son enjoyed his weekly saxophone lessons with Mas for several years.

He was awesome teacher! He upgraded me in higher level of playing sax.
