As a Russian Native, accomplished instructor with 20+ years experience, second generation educator, mother of a six year old boy and mentor to over 100 students, I know all the ins and outs when it comes to instilling a lifelong passion for this beautiful language.

My record shows fast results with my students, no matter which direction they decide to go with their training.

I believe in students really enjoying their lessons, and with me, they always look forward to coming back for more. I'm very knowledgeable with many methods on the market, and I create an individual approach to each of my students.

About Oksana
Hi!

I have taught piano for about 20 years, with great success. Some of my students are as young as 3 years old, some are in their 70s, and everything in between. I love to teach piano and Russian Language, it gives me great joy and personal satisfaction. I've traveled the world in concert, but after having my child, I have settled in Beverly Hills, CA where I perform for and teach many celebrities and their children.

I am very patient, caring and encouraging in my teaching approach.

I hope to hear from you soon, and to have you among my many happy students.

Oksana.

My Musical and Education Background

I studied piano since the age of five. At nine I won my first international pian
o competition. I attended Saint Petersburg College and Florida State University where I graduated with honors in piano performance in 2001.

After graduating I embarked fully on my musical journey - since then, my music has touched many people around the world, including members of U.S. Troops and U.N. Officials throughout Asia and Europe. In 2003, I became the first Russian-American female pianist to travel overseas to entertain the U.S. Troops. I embarked on two world tours on behalf of the Morale, Welfare and Recreation Department (MWR) of the U.S. Navy.

I then continued on a solo tour to entertain the U.S. Troops in September 2003, which brought me to the countries of Italy, Spain, and Greece. In February 2004, I went to Asia, where I performed for troops in Guam, Korea, Japan, Okinawa, and Singapore with Navy MWR. Upon completion of my performance tours, I moved to Los Angeles, California.

My move to Los Angeles brought me to the heart of the Hollywood elite, as I was the weekly performer at the legendary Polo Lounge in The Beverly Hills Hotel from 2006 until 2012. Due to my interactions with individuals in the likes of Kardashian family, the Osbourne family, Mel Gibson, Sir Elton John, among others, I now continue to be in demand for private and charitable events. To date, I recorded eight CDs of original, classical, and popular music.

My “Free Floating” album won the “2010 Best Classical Album of the Year” on Solo Piano.com. In addition, I have collaborated with other international music artists for recordings, and my original compositions have been sought after by highly-regarded individuals.

As a music teacher, I provide students of all ages a means for artistic outlet. Teaching makes me feel more complete as an artist and more accomplished as an individual. Sharing the gift of music is my primary mission in life.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A native of Barnaul in Siberia, Russia, and alumna of the College of Music at Florida State University, Oksana currently resides in Beverly Hills with her family. She continues to dedicate much of her time, music, and sales of CDs to charitable causes, including environmental concerns through Cool Green Fashion for Forests and children with cleft palate through Smile Train.

*** Lesson Details ***
I customize my teaching approach to each individual student. Having taught for 20+ years has taught me that every student learns differently - some do well with an easy approach, others with a more firm approach, while others with something in between.

I analyze each student's learning patterns, and structure their lessons in a way that gets the best results in the shortest time. I also have recitals so that my students can showcase what they have learned.

I am very patient, and also have experience teaching children with special needs. I aim at being not only the best teacher, but also a mentor to my students.

I prepare my students for Certificate of Merit and Competitions.
I'm also a proud member of Music Teachers of California.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Baby Grand Piano, full size and mid-size keyboard, four acoustic guitars.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, pop, broadway, musicals, rock, new age.

Oksana is a wonderful teacher!

I played piano for many years growing up, but after taking a few years off, I recently started lessons with Oksana. She helped me get right back in and I am loving every lesson so much. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to take lessons!

As a native Russian speaker, I focus on the basics of the Russian grammar and alphabet. Once the student knows and understands the basics, I move on to the intermediate and advanced parts of the language and structure. If the student's primary goal is effective communication, the lessons will primarily be focused on communication and speaking skills. I teach all levels of the Russian language and am really excited to teach students of any age!

About Regina
At the age of fifteen, Ms. Regina graduated with honors from the Z. Paliashvili Special Music Gymnasium for Gifted Children in Tbilisi, Georgia. As a student of a famous Georgian pianist, Tengiz Amirejibi, she presented her country in numerous competitions. (Tengiz Amirejibi was a student of Heinrich Neuhaus, a famous Russian teacher and pianist.)

As a child, Ms. Regina gave many solo recitals and concerts with the Georgian Symphonic Orchestra. Ms. Regina earned her Doctorate of Musical Arts with emphasis on Advanced Piano Performance from the Yerevan State Conservatory. After graduating, she worked with talented children in her alma mater for many years. Later in her professional career, Ms. Regina taught at the Tbilisi State Conservatory as well as the Moscow Music Gymnasium.

With more than eighteen years of professional teachin
g experience, Ms. Regina is able to offer her students a diverse range of educational resources. She specializes in teaching piano, performance, and music theory to students of all ages and levels.

Ms. Regina's teaching techniques are based on a combination of the famous Russian Music School (based on music giants such as Konstantin Igumnov, Daniel Barenboim, and Heinrich Neuhaus) and the American Music Education System. This combination allows each student to work at a pace comfortable for him/her, and helps all students make significant progress in the areas of sight reading, ear training, and performance skills.

***Teaching Schedule***
Ms. Regina teaches in her Glendale studio and the surrounding areas every day of the week except for Saturdays. She teaches in her Orange County studio located in Fountain Valley on Saturdays.

***Travel Area and Special Rates***
If the system shows that your location is out of my travel area, please contact me by messaging through TakeLessons! Also feel free to inquire for discounts for siblings!

Mariia is professional, punctual, and a good piano teacher. My daughter is learning so much, so fast! I've talked to other moms of similarly aged children, and their kids took much longer to be able to play with two hands. I attribute this to Mariia's teaching skills. Thanks Mariia!

I help my students learn alphabet and start reading. It may be helpful if you are traveling to Russia and would like to be able to read street names. I introduce my students to Russian culture through movies, cartoons and nursery rhymes. Usually it is a very enjoyable experience. As a native Russian who lives in USA I understand and able to explain the cultural differences that are hard to pick up from reading books.

I know very well what difficulties english and spanish speaking students may face to and how to avoid it. You will have an individual program, depending on what is your goal: to chat with your wife's mom, to read Dostoevskiy without dictionary or to negotiate with you business partner. I will show you that Russian is not so difficult as you may thought.

About Katya
I got my first students in high school when I helped teachers and gave classes to the kids from primary and since that time I've been teaching different people different things.
I graduated as economics specialist & teacher of economic theory
and it gives me a great knowledge of how to build classes what method to choose etc but I prefer to teach more practical and useful things.
I enjoy sharing things I know to help others live better simpler life. It's so exciting to see how my student starts practicing things she learnt and how it influences her life. Small excel tip helps to finish tasks in 5 minutes instead of hours of work. Yoga asana which gives you joy and balance for the whole day. Receipt of healthy no-sugar dessert which is more tasty than anything in Cheesecake factory. Small things change your life.
I'm friendly and ea
sy-going person and I know how to make classes efficient and interesting.
