Very knowledgable and enthusiastic teacher. He has a way about him that makes the lesson exciting.
Yoella & Malkiya O.
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!!!

I have been a student of Eric's for a little over 2 years. He has taught me so much about music and guitar and is an awesome teacher ! I have learned alot !!
Dennis
after Just strumming around for many years, I finally decided to learn how to play. It’s been a fun journey with Eric and he has me playing things I couldn’t imagine just six months ago. A bit of theory and a lot of repertoire my skills have improved quickly.... one of these days he will convince me to just play and not overthink!

"Bill is the best teacher around. His extensive performance experience makes all the difference - he knows every tip, trick and nuance in the book that changes every piece from just a set of notes to a performance of color, grace and subtlety. His knowledge of the guitar repertoire never fails to amaze. And he's wonderfully patient with everyone - you don't have to play like Bream or Russell"

Our son looks forward to his lessons every week and Mark has been so patient in helping him as he bounces around between classical and electric guitar, and we're thrilled to have him as a teacher."

"Could not ask for more..Fantastic teacher!

As someone who knew nothing about playing/reading music of any sort, I find myself recognizing and playing a few chords and notes just after about 10 classes! All thanks to John. I agree with the other reviewer that he truly has the patience of a saint. He is very laid back and helps me learn at my own pace while enjoying myself throughout the process irrespective of how much practice I put in. Whole heartedly recommend John for learning the guitar. Thanks very much John. You are the best!"
