Hi Everyone!

Thank you for choosing my profile. My name is Maggie and I am a Polish/ Ukrainian/Belgian pianist. I come from family of musicians and painters and as long as I remember I play the piano, harpsichord, sing and compose. My parents own a piano school in Europe so thanks to that I started teaching already 15 years ago. Since then I have been teaching my own piano and voice students in the Bay area. I can teach beginners, medium level and advanced students of all ages but I also can prepare you for concerts or competitions if needed. My pupils perform at least twice a year. A little about myself: I have three Master Degrees in music from universities in Europe and USA . I speak English, French, Russian and Polish. I hope you will have fun learning music with me! Please write a quick intro about yourself and what would you like to learn this year. Thank you!

When I started with Linda I hadn't had a piano lesson in almost forty years. In a short time she had me playing with more confidence and at a far higher level than I had ever achieved before. Linda is a phenomenal performer and a gifted teacher. Anyone at any level would be lucky to work with her.
Craig
I consider myself very fortunate to have found Linda when I took up piano after a 50 year hiatus. She brought enthusiasm, patience and profound musical knowledge to each lesson. I would be with her still if Julliard hadn’t called her to Manhattan. Six stars!

"As a fellow teacher, pianist and choral director, I know a fine musician and teacher when I see one, and I am happy to recommend Tamari Witkin as an outstanding teacher of piano, voice and composition. As a highly versatile, knowledgeable, multi-faceted musician and coach, she motivates her students of all ages, from beginner to advanced levels, to keep reaching for ever-higher levels. Tamari's enthusiasm and creativity as an instructor make taking lessons from her both interesting and fun. She skillfully and thoughtfully communicates the language, meaning and joy of making music. Tamari is exceptional in encouraging and motivating her students. These qualities are what make up the keys to what it's all about; the bottom line: one would be hard-pressed to find a better balanced and effective teacher of music."

"Karen is very professional and willing to do what it takes to see to the success of her students. Many instructors are not understanding when things come up and you must change a lesson day or time. Karen is very understanding and will work to help you. My daughter has had 3 instructors and Karen is the best. My child has greatly advanced and others notice it. Where ever we go she is asked to show her talent. I would highly recommend Karen as your instructor. She also offers the best price. She is well worth the investment."

"I started taking lessons with Luba when I was 7 years old, and stayed with her for over 10 years (until I left for college). Now, despite no longer taking piano lessons, I still find great enjoyment in playing piano, and I attribute my love and knowledge of music to Luba. Luba's piano lessons were truly invaluable. She believes in a holistic approach, and understands that it is important for a student to be able to tackle a piece both technically and emotionally. She patiently goes over music theory, delving into the whys and hows of composition, helping her students understand the piece technically. Her explanations and demonstrations on the techniques with which to play a piece were clear and informative, and with practice I found my technical skills improving substantially. However, unlike many other musicians I've met who have mastered technique but failed to apply emotion, Luba ensures that a student is also able to connect with the music. She encouraged me when I chose to learn pieces I liked, and guided me when I struggled to emotionally connect with certain composers. She also taught me the value of practicing (which many children dislike doing, myself included at the time), and gave advice on how to actually practice and improve. With Luba, I consistently received a grade of "Outstanding" (the highest grade level) at the Music Educators Association's annual audition, and placed in numerous piano competitions around the state. I went from barely having any knowledge of music and piano to being able to both learn and sight read complex pieces. It's so satisfying for your efforts to pay off and to finally reach a level where you can pick any piece and know that you have the skills to learn it and play it well. Without Luba, I would not have reached such a mastery of piano and I am extremely grateful for all of her help over the years. Luba is a fantastic piano teacher and any student would be lucky to take lessons with her!"

We took lessons before from another company and my granddaughter was never excited about going. Now she is excited,she has even put in to be in the talent show at her school.
