Dimitry Olevsky is an excellent violin teacher whose style and insight as a teacher can and certainly will lead to many top adult violin players in the years ahead. I say that from the perspective, not only of my current 13-year old, who is studying under him after having taken less inspiring lessons elsewhere, but also from memories of years past when my now much older adult daughter took violin lessons as a middle and high schooler. And indeed from my own perspective taking serious music instrumental lessons (not on violin) decades ago. Having said the above, Dr. Olevsky will be most successful with students who have an internal drive and desire to better themselves as a musician. He can be severe and critical in pointing out areas where his students' techniques and musical interpretation need improvement, and he is excellent in both aspects of this guidance. A lesson sequence is serious business, and Dr. Olevsky can be severely critical if the circumstances call for this. Lesson time is not given to frivolity, and students must be able to accept criticism. A non-self motivated student may falter under his guidance -- unless the process of becoming better leads to increased dedication. I.e., the non-dedicated student may find the pressure to improve more than he or she might like, and the lesson criticism and demonstration of specific ways to improve may lead to discouragement. This is more likely to happen if the student does not act on suggested improvements during practice at home between actual lessons. I highly recommend Dr. Olevsky for students dedicated to learning seriously.

I have been so thankful and pleased to take cello lessons from Arlette these past three years. Her experienced instruction has helped me improve bowing and fingering techniques, and her great coaching has enabled me to better voice my cello to a richer, stronger sound. Arlette’s advice on best posture and handling of my cello has made me feel more comfortable and confident with my instrument. In addition, Arlette has helped me use the written dynamics and note phrases to achieve a desired mood of a piece. Currently I play in a middle school/high school/community string orchestra. Arlette's patient, cheerful, and affordable instruction has been a great help in preparing me for the challenging music in the repertoire. Cathi (69 years-young)

My two (2) kids go to this school for Piano Lessons. It's a great school with teachers who care and they even got (ONE) of my kids to actually play correctly and she now likes playing the piano. They are strict but have real concern for the students and offer a great environment to excel. I would recommend Donna Lee and her Music School anytime. A+++++++

My 10 yr old son has been taking private Violin lessons at home with Brandon for the last 4-5 months. My son enjoys learning from Brandon. He gives a lot of focus on getting the basics right, something which my son didn't learn in his group Violin classes at school.. My son finds him very funny and likes that Brandon gives him little tips like rhymes/beats which help him remember his notes better. There are times he comes a little late because of heavy traffic but he always sends a message and lets us know about it.We are looking forward to learning more from him.

Manoela has been teaching me violin for over 2 years. She gave me confidence and encouragement from day one. I never thought learning an instrument could be this rewarding! She took the time to find out what I was really interested in learning so that lessons were fun and challenging at the same time from the very beginning. Manoela has a tremendous amount of patience and an ability to teach a number of different ways until I grasp the concept. I could not recommend Manoela more highly for any type of student!

I have known Jennifer Deirmendjian for 12 years now and worked with her musically on solo projects off and on as well as performances in bands. She plays and writes violin beautifully. I have learned so much from her musicianship in rehearsals on a professional level more than anyone I have ever worked with. She is patient, kind and disciplined. I highly recommend her teaching experience as she has been my mentor and inspired me in so many ways!

Shanon is the best. I'm about to finish my first term with her and I feel I've made great progress, especially as an adult beginner who's never played music before. She helped me get an instrument and she's always available to answer my questions. 100% would recommend!

Matthew is able to do in-home lessons, which for me right now is very helpful. Although I was going to take violin lessons I decided to switch to viola, and Matthew is a wonderful, wonderful viola teacher (as he surely must be for violin too, given his expertise and patience). He is clearly a masterful teacher, as working with adult students presents a whole other range of challenges to an instructor. I've had only two lessons so far and have already made clear progress in the areas I wanted most to improve, and look forward to working with Matthew going forward. My lessons are inspiring with this clearly highly experienced player and performer; they are also fun. Matthew's a warm-hearted and engaging teacher with whom I KNOW I'll continue to make progress. Though I'm an older adult, I am inspired to push through my limits. With so much to learn I'm very grateful to have a teacher with expertise, humor and flexibilty. Thank you for reading this.

About

My students receive a music education that is tailored to fit their needs as a student. Unlike many teachers who teach all students with one method, I am interested in what the student wants to pursue and why they enjoy music. My students will not only study classical piano or violin, but will learn music theory, develop ear training skills and improvisational skills, and learn to play with a beautiful sound from the very beginning. Students will be encouraged to listen to and play music that they love.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
