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 Saxophone Teacher

Over the course of 10 years teaching experience, I have gained tremendous success teaching saxophone to students young and old. I have taught in conservatories as well as privately, and have refined my methods of teaching the passionate rigor which music demands.

I currently have a private studio where I teach, on 72nd Street in Manhattan. I can also travel to your home. I teach Classical and Klezmer music, to kids and adults who have never played an instrument before, as well as advanced players. I also teach theory.

I am a devoted teacher, and over so many years, I feel what I have to offer my students has grown exponentially. I know how to work with individuals on their own terms, and have a good sense of how my own playing can help inspire and guide my students.

Studying with Naum I not developed my musicality tremendously, while still focusing on technical aspects of playing. He is a patient, inspiring instructor. My little brother (13) studied with Naum for three years and is now playing at a level above many his age. What I appreciate the most about Naum's approach, is his ability to adapt to his student's individual needs and abilities. I always felt my lessons were made for me, and this helped me grow very quickly as a musician. I should also add that Naum is a fantastically talented player, and very moving to hear in concert.

Benny was very clear. I took a lot from my first lesson. Made corrections on minor things and assessed my skill level before, during and at the end of the session. I would recommend him.

"My first lesson with Carl was great. His location is good for teaching the instrument. His knowledge of saxophone and music theory is excellent and the majority surpasses my own. After a long period of not having lessons, I’ve discovered through Carl’s teaching that I have a lot of work to do to improve, and I even consider myself someplace between an amateur and a professional player."
