About Oliver E.

Profile_42732_pi_Oliver%20violin
Brooklyn, NY
View Full Profile

I've worked with my theory/composition students on DAW sessions and currently record a wealth of my own material in various genres so I could easily pass myriad insights on to someone looking to increase their recording chops.

About Oliver
Hi, I'm Oliver Devine E, a professional musician currently residing in north Brooklyn.

I graduated from NYU in 2005 with a degree in theory and composition (after completing 2 years as a jazz performance major). I played in the rock bands Arpline and The Kiss Off and recorded for Universal Records with the super group Pure Love. I currently record and perform under the monikers Aeolian, Negation, Afterworldsmen, Sandglass and Marlowe Dies as well as performing live with the post-punk band Cloak.

I've been teaching both piano and music theory lessons since 2006 and have had great success with students, several of which I have forged mentor-student relationships with. With my vast knowledge of esoteric and popular music genres (I'm comfortable with folk, death metal, modern jazz, indie rock, hip-hop... well, you get the point. I'm a
music obsessive) I believe becoming a total musician should be a goal for any student but I enjoy the challenge that each individual brings to the table.

I'm currently attending Hunter college to get a Master's degree in Music Education (K-12).

*** Lesson Details ***
In the past I've tailored lessons based on the specific needs of my students.
For example: someone who can read music based on childhood experience, but is struggling to regain confidence, could use technical exercises, piece-learning w/ structure and theory insights, as well as genre work outside their comfort zone. For a total beginner, reading music might be a long haul; so strategies for learning simple tunes and more general theory insights are a must.

Curriculum I commonly use for piano/theory includes, Hannon, easier Bach repertoire, Beethoven/Mozart/Chopin/etc,, The Jazz Piano book, Tonal Harmony, This is Your Brain on Music. Because of my extensive relationship with a wealth of texts, I never just rest on my laurels and will find the right material for you (even if that means printing or e-mailing pages from my own collection)

I'm fairly laid back compared to many teachers, but as a forward thinking, well-rounded musician (music is my life) I will revel in pushing students to max out their potential, no matter what their experience level.

*** Studio Equipment ***
High-end digital stage piano, midi keyboards, music software, guitars, sax, trumpet, snare drum, small studio set-up (microphone, interface, etc).

*** Specialties ***
Very adept at explaining music theory and the dissemination of practical information into piano lessons. The solo piano repertoire from the 18th through late 20th century is another specialty. The students I've had most success with range from absolute beginners to advanced professionals, but all seem to have a broad range of music interests and curiosity for improvement.

I have only had a few lessons so far, but I am enjoying them. Oliver is very willing to rehearse music of your interest and is very helpful with any concerns you may have. He pushes you out of your comfort zone just enough and I feel that I am definitely growing as a musician. Great experience so far.

I've been taking piano lessons with Oliver for about a year now, and in just one year, my love and ability to play piano has surpassed my expectations. Oliver creates his lesson plan based on the individual's needs, and adjusts his teaching to match the students capacity to learn, making for a fun, relaxed, and comprehensive lesson each time.

Oliver has helped me not only understand theory, which helps with composing music, but also how to read and play sheet music. Like anything, you only get better with practice, but having a great teacher to guide you along the way makes all the difference.

I would recommend Oliver to any individual seeking to enhance his/her ability to play, read and/or write music, whether you are a beginner or an advanced musician.

Tom really knows his way around a bass. Each time I go for a lesson, i leave happy about the things we've accomplished in the lesson. Anything that i would like to learn Tom makes it possible for me to do so. I started getting lessons in order to not slow down on my playing. With my schedule constantly changing Tom has been very nice at accommodating when possible.

Interested in learning the ins and outs of studio recording? I can guide you through all the basics - various recording software, mic techniques, signal flow, performing in the studio, writing, mixing, programming, midi, editing. Everything you need to know to make your music shine!

About Mike
I'm Mike, and I'm thrilled to be part of the TakeLessons team. I first picked up the guitar at the age of 5, and have never looked back! I began formal Jazz training in high school and continued studying guitar and composition at Oberlin College and Wesleyan University. After graduating, I played Organ Trio and small combo jazz in LA, studied Brazilian and African percussion, and went to Japan to study Shamisen and Taiko drumming. I've been playing in various groups since arriving in NYC in 2005, and have recently been working on engineering and composing for film.

My strength lies in my versatility - I love music of all kinds. Whether it's Soul, Samba, or Salsa, Rock, Pop or Hip Hop, I am very good at communicating the mechanics of music so that my students not only learn to play, but learn to listen and write. I have a studio space i
n Manhattan as well as a small mixing studio in my Brooklyn apartment, and I'm happy to show students the ins and outs of recording along with theory and guitar technique.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music is fun!!! I strive for all my students to enjoy themselves, to have a great time learning about the world of music.
I use a song-based approach to guitar playing. Armed with just a small vocabulary of chords, you can play hundreds of great songs. My students will determine the course of their lesson plan by selecting songs they want to learn. While maintaining proper technique and effective practice methods, we will learn the fundamentals of the guitar by playing the music that we love. After 6 months, you will know all the basic chords, and the fundamentals of playing a solo. As lessons progress, you also learn song structure and some basic harmonic theory so you can begin creating on your own.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student is expected to provide his or her own guitar.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, ear training, songwriting, theory

About Nicholas
Nick (b. 1987 in New York City) composes, produces, performs and records music for live presentation, film, video, and dance. He began performing at age 9 around his hometown of Asheville, NC, and won a number of prestigious awards and scholarships.

In 2004, still in high school, Nick composed original jazz pieces for his jazz trio.  The prestigious Jazz Composers Forum debuted the combo, which then played a variety of high-profile events through 2006.

In January 2006  Nick performed at The International Jazz Festival Lapataia in Punta del Este, Uruguay with jazz saxophonist Alex Han.

Nick's acoustic/electronic "The Orphan Girl -- Nenneh" was presented at the gala re-opening of newly restored Aycock Auditiorium at UNC-Greensboro. The UNCG Symphony Orchestra, with guest conductor Eduardo Vargas, premiered his composition "Intersta
te 40"  in 2010. Later that year Nick received his degree in Music Composition.

In 2012, he released an album of original songs and compositions, entitled "Foolish Fantasy."

He currently resides in Brooklyn, NY, where he works full-time performing, composing, and teaching music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I do not believe in a one-size fits all philosophy when it comes to piano lessons. I tailor-fit all my lessons to the particular student's goals.

Students find my demeanor laid-back, personal, upfront, and patient.

I like to incorporate tidbits of relevant music history to contextualize the music we work on. To me, it keeps things more interesting!

Sometimes lesson books may not be necessary. When appropriate, I prefer teaching from the Bastien book series.  

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yamaha Acoustic Upright Piano!
Roland RD-300NX full size weighted keyboard w/ ivory feel.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student must have access to his or her own keyboard (electric or acoustic acceptable)

*** Specialties ***
I prefer to teach the Bastien method to my younger students! I am proficient in blues, jazz, RnB, rock, pop, gospel, and classical.

I can guide you through the basics of recording, mixing, and mastering your own music projects.

About Chris
My name is Chris B. and I've been playing music for most of my life.

The best lesson that I've personally learned is that a musician is never done learning. Once you start believing that you know everything there is to know about your instrument, or that your style of playing is superior to others, then you've stopped growing musically. Perhaps you excel in one area of your playing but need further development in another. Personally, I've also learned that I enjoy sharing my knowledge of music with others and exposing students to new techniques and musical concepts.

I strongly believe that these traits are the most important aspects of teaching music to others. No matter how advanced my playing skills might progress, I’ll always be able to relate to any type of student because I’m still learning something new everyday!

I've been taking lessons from Chris for 2 months now. He's exceptional in his teaching methods and makes each lesson enjoyable. I'm a beginner and learning my first chorded song. He's been excellent at taking his time and breaking the song down to where I feel comfortable playing.
He's easily reached by email, and has sent me audio files of himself playing the song we're working on to help me with my practice. I leave my lessons pumped and excited to play. I highly recommend him!!

I own a home recording studio with a live tracking room in Brooklyn! I can teach you how to record a live band, covering everything from mic'ing drums correctly, to learning how to use a console, to learning how to use software such as Protools or Logic Pro. I can also show you how to mix a recording session and how to complete a full song.

About Tom
I've been playing since I was 9 years old, and have toured and recorded with a bunch of people and learned a lot of things! I graduated new school for jazz and contemporary music where I studied with some of the best guitarists in New York, and play regularly in NYC with a bunch of really amazing bands. I also teach at The School Of Rock in Manhattan and work with kids of all ages in both group and one-on-one settings.

Tom is one of the best teachers I've ever had. When I first started studying with him, I really couldn't do much on the guitar, let alone write songs, write arrangements, or record music by myself. Nowadays, I feel comfortable in all of these areas, largely thanks to my lessons with Tom. Toms's explanations are extremely thorough and clear, and Tom always finds a way to make even the most boring things fun and interesting. +Tom has a great sense of humor- Could not recommend anyone more!! 5 stars
