Welcome to my music studio! I have been teaching for many years and love sharing music with students of any and every age. In addition to teaching lessons, I am also a board certified music therapist based in Brooklyn, NY.

I love teaching music and operate under the philosophy that everyone is inherently musical. I work with my students' strengths to help them flourish musically while filling in the gaps of their education making them more wholistic musicians.

I teach standard lesson material (technique, scales, etudes, repertoire, etc.) supplemented with "fun / student songs." The ratio split depends on the student - some do 90% fun and 10% lesson material, and others split it 50 / 50. I help each student come up with a personalized lesson plan depending on their music background, goals, and genres or styles of interest.

I can work with students on music theory, composition, improvisation, sight reading, and much more! I teach piano, guitar, ukulele, voice, flute, trumpet, flugelhorn, and saxophone.

My studio is a safe space for all individuals and I respect and value each person for who they are.

Thank you so much for considering working with me! Do not hesitate to reach out with any questions!

Havovi has been teaching my son piano for four years. He has grown considerably during that time as a musician and person. Havovis influence on him has been invaluable, even teaching him by Zoom after moving to a different state.
Not only is she patient, she takes the time to listen to his ideas and wishes for his performances. She has even arranged for a few of his obscure favorites to be converted to pieces that can be played on the piano.
She is great about communicating with me about ways to help him at home, and is always extremely timely in her responses to my questions.
As a parent, it is such a blessing to have someone enter your childs life who cares, understands and invests in their well-being. This is exactly what Havovi has done for my son.
