Aziza M

Instruments:

I was born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan where I began studying piano at the age of five with Professor Tamara Papovich and began playing violin at age six with Professor Gulnara Suleymanova. I began my undergraduate degree at the State Conservatory of Uzbekistan in 2004 and graduated in 2008. I moved to the United States in 2010 to pursue my Professional Performance Certificate at Lynn University, Florida with Professor Carol Cole. Also, starting from the age of sixteen, I began violin coaching to students from all levels. After teaching for some years, I realized that I am very passionate about sharing my skills and knowledge with my students and it motivates me immensely to see them grow in the field of music. With over 10 years of teaching experience, my style of coaching has been often seen by my students as creative and effective.

Greg W

Instruments:

I have a BM in Music Ed. I would describe myself as outgoing.  I’m a K-8 Music Teacher working for the NYC DOE, and privately tutor students.  I have NYS certifications in Music B-12 and Students with Disabilities 1-6.  Currently, I am working toward my MA at Hofstra finishing my last class and beginning my thesis.  

Scott T

Instruments:

I'm a musician who loves working with students and sharing my passion for music. In 2008, I moved to New York from Paris, France. Performing all over the world has been one of the greater experiences of my life as a musician, and I've had the opportunity to play at the Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall as well as the Blue Note NY.   

David M

Instruments:

I enjoy teaching those who wish to learn. The most important thing that a teacher can teach a student is fundamentals - i.e. the basics.  The fundamentals do one very important thing - enable the student to execute. When you get on stage you might be nervous, but I can guarantee you will know exactly what to do and that knowledge will calm you down enough to enjoy the experience. The musical aspect of playing, I believe, is something you either have or don't. I can coach you, of course, on what I believe is the way to play a phrase; however, in the end that really shouldn't be my job (nor anyone else's).

More Information About Violin Lessons

As a student starts lessons they will need to provide their own instrument. While advanced students may choose to buy a violin, it is a good idea for beginners to look into rental programs. By renting, you are able to commit less financially, and you will be equipped with all the accessories you need. Renting also benefits children, as string instruments come in different sizes, and a child will most likely start on a small instrument. As the grow, they will need to increase the instruments size, and this switch can be done very conveniently if you are renting.
When you choose in home lessons, you are choosing the most convenient way to add music to your life. By having the instructor come to your home you are saving time, money, and energy! Not only is this a convenient option for busy schedules, but it allows you to learn your instrument in the familiar, and comfortable space of your own home. Learning in an environment where you are at ease is beneficial for both children and adults.
Music lessons are tailored to the students specific needs. The teacher will work with each student individually to develope a lesson plan that ensures the most productivity. While working towards the students specific goals, there will be lessons in music theory, how to correctly handle the instrument, and how to develope the students own musicianship. While Musika does not mandate a particular style of teaching, if there is a method you are interested in we will do our best to match you with a teacher that specializes in that area.
Musika works with all ages and skill levels to help students reach their highest potential! Whether you are an adult beginner, or an advanced player, our teachers will work with you to further your skills, and reach any goals you may have. With customized lesson plans, and a convenient in home lessons option, adult students find lessons with Musika to be both successful and rewarding.
Young students will learn all aspects of playing their new instrument. All children will begin to read music, and learn how to handle their instrument properly, as well as start to develope their musicianship. Violins are a small instrument that can be comfortable for little hands. While most adults will play on a standard full size, the violin comes in smaller sizes as well and our teachers will be able to assist you on choosing the correct one.
