I have taught to students aged between 17 - 60 and also have worked with children aged between 4 - 14 and helped them get into children choruses in opera houses as well as preparing them later for conservatory auditions.As i am also a biodynamic breathwork trauma release system therapist , miyofascial energy release massage therapist and holding meditation workshops , i have a deeper understanding of body pressure , tension release . I also use human voice to release trauma combined with breathwork and use breath and bodywork to use voice as a whole instrument. Through these techniques i can also help you find a real connection with your heart center and work on your music through these techniques. Great singing comes from being the song itself , staying in the flow , releasing and freeing yourself with the air , while you are balanced in your body and in the spine. It is all about feeling yourself more comfortable in your being and to be ...

Hi, I am a working jazz pianist and recent graduate from the prestigious Eastman School of Music. I have a background in jazz and classical music and I specialize in jazz music, pop music, and gospel music. I teach beginner to advanced piano and music theory to accompany your piano skills as well.

One of the big problems in learning piano is that the songs you want to play, the songs on the radio or pop songs aren’t taught. More specifically, the skills you need to play pop or jazz or to compose aren’t taught. I personally love helping to bridge the gap between the traditional training in piano fundamentals - which we cover and solidify- with the theory and skills needed to compose and to play jazz and pop.

I especially love helping pianists wanting to explore different styles and become more interdisciplinary.

You may know me from Reacttothek a youtube channel on where I analyze kpop!

Much of my methods are derived from my doctoral dissertation studies in the field of Sports Psychology. I apply my teaching methods to develop and increase control of muscular and mental functions, accuracy, precision, discipline, mental awareness and overall coordination in violin performance. I am eager to share my knowledge and experience in sports psychology and to emphasize the general psychological benefits and contribution to human enrichment.

​My students earn numerous accolades, such as Concertmaster and title positions in the: Colburn Chamber and Los Angeles Youth Orchestras, Santa Monica High School Chamber Orchestra, Idyllwild Music Festival Symphony and Chamber Orchestras, Interlochen Music Festival, Honor Orchestra of America, and Santa Monica High School Symphony and Chamber Orchestra, Palisades High School Symphony; Grand Prize in the Fifth International Colibri Music Competition, Westside Committee of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Student Scholarships and ...

Kiran L.
I started learning violin from Dr. Dimitry 1 month ago because, unlike other teachers, I found Dr. Dimitry very honest in specifying the subtleties and nuances, especially the snaggy ones which make the violin one of the most challenging instruments to learn. Although his classes were very expensive, I chose him as he was a straightforward and experienced violinist and I never compromise on the quality of teaching. Also, being a doctoral student myself, I know what it means to earn a Ph.D. and that too in music.

Now, it has been one month, and I enjoy his classes. His analogies and examples are an apt way of understanding the techniques of playing the violin. Though Dr. Dimitry is an advanced violinist, he is very patient with absolute beginners. To sum up, I would highly recommend him to people who are very serious and determined to learn and practice the violin.
Sharon
A true professional and a great teacher! I have been taking violin lessons now for 6 months with Dr. Dimitri Olevsky, having switched to Dimitri after having had a mediocre experience with my previous teacher. Wow…what a difference. Dimitri ably blends his extensive knowledge, talent, and seriousness about his craft with a witty sense of humor. He is able to simplify the complexities of violin technique so that it is truly feels accessible. Highly recommended.
Alexander
Dr. Olevsky was immediately able to improve my playing with direct, practical advice. He is concerned with efficient practice and in making the maximum amount of progress in the time that one has. He is highly knowledgable about the audition process and the real day to day of being a professional performing violinist. I have been playing for 15+ years and find Dimitry's lessons very challenging and stimulating.

Elisabetta has been teaching my daughter since January 2017. She has always been so patient and kind. My daughter has so much fun during her lessons and has learned so much. She enjoys them so much that when the pandemic hit, we knew we had to continued with her lessons online. She still manages to keep her engaged and interested during virtual lessons.
She has been with us for over 3 years and It is still something my daughter looks forward to every week. You cant find a better teacher. We love her!
Ruth
I have been studying with Elisabetta for almost three years and I appreciate her more and more. I'm not a young person anymore but I think I progressed quite a bit thanks to her encouragement. She is a very good teacher but also a very intelligent and fun person. She never looks at the clock and always wants to hear me play "another piece." I am so happy to have her in my life.

"Marco is punctual, patient and knowledgeable. He created a comfortable studio environment where I could progress at my own pace. Sometimes he would give me a simple tip that made a difficult passage suddenly easy, or we would work through a section on piano. Marco has a killer ear and can hear the tiniest detail in a piece. I was able to progress faster than I thought I would/could with his guidance and excellent teaching style. He would make a great teacher for any level student."
