Introduction: Hello and welcome to my profile! I have a dual career. I am both an experienced performer (singing pianist), piano teacher and vocal coach/accompanist, and I am also an ordained rabbi, having served congregations for 19 years, and now am also registered as a civil wedding officiant. Please review the relevant section — or both. TEACHER: I enjoy working with students and performers of all ages and backgrounds, inspiring them to pursue a lifetime of musical enjoyment. I earned a bachelor's degree in theory and composition from Northwestern University, studied piano formally for 15+ years and studied voice for 10+ years. I began teaching beginning piano students while in high school, and now perform regularly through Chicagoland both solo and as part of The Chicagoland Duo. I offer transcription services for your original songs, as well. A recent testimonial: "Andy has been teaching my 8-year old son how to play piano for the past six months and it is incredible to see how much progress my son has made in such a short period of time. My son has never played piano before and now loves it! Andy is patient, flexible, and accommodating. He ensures that my son is always involved in the decision-making process as to what songs to learn to play. Andy tries to make the lessons fun and enjoyable while at the same time serious. It has been such a wonderful and easy experience working with Andy." Jeanine R., Wilmette, IL WEDDING OFFICIANT: I’ve performed scores of wedding ceremonies of all types, including same-gender and interreligious, whether affirming God’s blessing or offering a completely secular approach. I offer more extensive counseling if requested or none at all. My goal is to celebrate the couple in all their uniqueness and provide all the support needed. I have sometimes incorporated my own musical performance in certain settings. I am always eager to craft a ceremony that fits who you are and your vision of the ideal experience for your own wedding day! Recent testimonials will be posted soon.

Piano Lessons

Andy has been the perfect piano teacher for me after 25 years of not playing. He teaches me some theory and is very encouraging, reminding me that it will take time. However, after a few lessons, I already see improvement. I’m excited about playing again!

Thanks, Janet. Keep it up!

Andy was amazing. Communicated with me and the bride and groom. The ceremony was perfect and well done. His value is worth way more than his coat.

Wedding Officiant

First time using this application for hired work but awesome first time experience with Mr Bossov, Reasonable prices, very respectful, Courteous, very good with family, guests and even children! Decided to get married without much planning but Mr Bossov made the experience so much more enjoyable, helps reduce stress in such a huge life transition. Highly recommended, I’m keeping him as a contact for future projects as well as someone I’d recommend to my family. He’s the stranger you never knew you wanted and needed as part of your family, thanks Andy!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I try to stay modestly competitive. I believe I’m worth more than I charge, but I’d rather have more modestly priced work in both teaching and performing than holding out for only high-paying gigs/students.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Assess what they know already and what they want to learn or perform and work toward their goals.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a B.A. from Northwestern University in theory and composition. I also studied piano at Oberlin College.
