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!!!

About Melissa C.

New Hyde Park, NY

View Full Profile

I have been teaching flute for 7 years now, working with beginners to advanced students. Each lesson is customized and catered to your goals and needs.

Lessons will focus on (1) Technique and (2) Artistry which I believe give students the tools they need to play music in their own voices. Technique includes working on music theory, tone, articulation, vibrato, and more. Artistry allows students the opportunity to be creative and play something more than just black dots on a page!

I want students to enjoy making music, not just by themselves, but also with others! As a pianist as well, I often accompany my students during lessons or play flute duets together.

I look forward to working with you!
