** Start building your piano skills TODAY! Get your first lesson with us for FREE and FEEL the difference! I work ONLINE and IN-PERSON **

Stuck at your current level and looking to advance your piano skills? Are you a beginner who wants to learn and discover music? I am here to help!

Before starting we set up an interview during which we talk with the student in order to identify the goals they want to achieve and how I can help. After identifying a level the student is at, I start by carefully choosing the right repertoire and building an individual plan for the entire course of study. My method is developed to master skills in music and piano playing which include technique, theory, sight-reading, and music history. I am proud of my students who show incredible success on the international and local levels by winning competitions, participating at festivals, and mastering all kinds of music tests.

Having lessons with Vitaly had been an eye-opening experience! He is not only a terrific musician (you must hear him play live, he performs frequently in the Phoenix area!), but also a very thoughtful and humble teacher. I am a classical pianist myself and have taken lessons with many great teachers over the years, so I really do have enough experience to know that there are not many teachers like Vitaly. The dedication with which he works is incredible. I always wished that my lessons lasted longer because the working process had been so inspiring.
You will not believe what you will be capable of after your lessons with Vitaly.
Brad
Vitaly is the best pianist, musician and teacher I have ever known. He has a wonderful sense of humor and is very likable. As a teacher he is very encouraging and respectful. He understands, and can explain, music at a deep level. There were pieces I have heard practically all my life, but Vitaly would surprise me by illustrating melodies in the inner voices that I had never realized were part of the music, enabling me to see beauty in the pieces I had not known was there, and showing me how to bring out the hidden melodies through developing a sensitive “touch” when playing the piano. He played a piece I was working on, and he spontaneously expanded chords in a rather complex line, making the music surprisingly brilliant. He explained things clearly and patiently, and he had the ability of making me feel important as a student. He can guide a student from the very beginning to the most advanced.
Daniel
Vitaly is a caring, utmost skilled piano virtuoso and quite possibly an even more gifted teacher who aspires his students to set realistic yet lofty learning & performance goals through a consistent, instrisic motivational teaching style. We are extremely fortunate to have Vitaly instruct our son Anderson! The future for my son is made so much brighter with such a brilliant piano, and music theory education ! Many thanks Vitaly!

I love teaching students what THEY want to learn, while providing them with a solid foundation on their instrument. I will cater the lesson to the needs of the student and make it fun, because music is meant to be fun. I can help students learn music of their choice, or I can come up with some music to get them started. If they want to to learn music by ear, read music, improvise, or learn new tunes, I love teaching all of those things!

About Alani

I am a fiddle, mandolin, and guitar player with a passion for bluegrass and old time music. I love to perform and have had the opportunity to share the stage with many of my hero's. Over my years of learning and playing this music, I have been taught and mentored by many amazing musicians, which

Alani is very personable and easy to communicate with. She quickly assessed my strengths and weaknesses and gave me immediate feedback to improve on my concerns. Very positive and encouraging. She is also able and willing to work on what I’m interested in but also points out things she thinks I need to improve on. On my first lesson she started me on some embellishments for a tune I had started teaching myself (Whiskey Before Breakfast) a made a recording for me. 🎻🎻🎻🎻🎻

"I studied piano for 3 years with Yoon Jae, from when I was 25-28 years old. I'd started playing piano a bit in my early 20s, but never very seriously. I am mainly a drummer and percussionist, and studied music in college. I was looking for someone to take my piano playing, reading, and technique to closer to that of a professional, rather than an amateur/hobbyist which was where I was at. Yoon Jae really did that. I'm not going to be touring and playing Carnegie Hall anytime soon or anything like that, but I can really confidently say that my lessons with Yoon Jae raised my level a lot. My understanding of touch, nuance and phrasing grew a lot. My reading, though still a weakness, improved a lot, and my technique improved tremendously. By the end of our time I was playing Chopin's Fantasy Impromptu. I think if my 22 year old self saw a video of my 28 year old self playing that piece I would be floored. Though I don't take lessons with him anymore, now when I work on a piece on my own I still use many of the approaches, strategies and practice techniques he taught me- and I think that is the most valuable thing I got from him. He really developed a much deeper awareness, nuance and focus in that I can take with me for the rest of my life as a musician. He really is a great teacher."

She looks forward to her lessons every week and when I come home from work, I find her practicing on her own. I'm so grateful to Mr. Sal for not only teaching Sophia music and piano, but also for teaching her at an early age hard work and perseverance. I highly recommend him!"

In my first few lessons, George has been a top-notch instructor that caters to my needs. As a beginner singer, but fairly advanced musician, he prepared me for a gig in 2 weeks time by providing the perfect blend of individualized instruction and a crash course in important fundamentals that lay the right foundation and create good habits.

He's well-versed in all kinds of music, and capable of teaching a wide variety of people, evidenced by his diverse background and clientele."
