Reviews - what people say about lessons with Ivan:  

"I had a lesson with Ivan Baryshnikov and was humbled by the experience. As soon as the session began with Ivan I was calmed and my attention was sharp with his presence. Ivan is a wonderful teacher who closely listens to the studens. Ivan puts the wonder back into music and that is something that is needed in this world. He set an objective calming tone of the session that gave me the confidence to practice hard again. Plus he's just a good bro who kills the sax. I hope to have another lesson soon once I've mastered the essentials. Thanks, Ivan." - Ras Eddy Rashid - trumpet player. 

“I was taking lessons with Ivan for three months by Skype. I was interested in improving my composing skills, working on new rhythms and organizing my practice routine in a right way. I have only positive impressions: the material was structured, examples he gave were from both reputable sources and his personal experience. New information was explained in a very accessible way and without useless talks. He helped me to track my progress by analyzing the results. In terms of scheduling a lesson Ivan was very organized, responsible and flexible. 

It is great that he loves what he does and shares his experience and knowledge about music. I recommend him to everybody!” - Valery Mukaev, saxophone player.
