One of the most rewarding aspects of an academic position is the opportunity to teach and
interact with students. Mathematics is known as an abstract but fascinating discipline. I have been immersed in it for many years and enchanted by its beauty. In the career of teaching, I always try to pass my passion by encouraging students to think, enlightening students about how to think, and offering students concrete examples that they can play with. Whether or not they realize it, students have the freedom to explore and to think about problems in new ways.

I am Russian speaking native with a Moscow pronunciation which is considered as a standard, model pronunciation in Russia. During my extensive music education in Moscow and Leningrad I got the degrees of a Musicologist and Music Editor and Lecturer side by side with my Piano degree which shows that my skills in Russian language were professionally trained. I had a long time experience when helping people of different countries in Europe how to learn and improve their Russian. I continue helping American people in this. I hope you will enjoy a lot of wit and creativity when learning Russian with me.

About Anna

I hold a Master's degree in Piano Pedagogy and Music Theory and History. I established my own teaching method that is based on European classical teaching tradition. I am familiar with most of the American piano teaching methods and use their achievements in my teaching widely. Personally, I am

I have taken lessons with Anna since I was seven years old (currently age 18). I began knowing nothing about the piano or music theory. Neither of my parents can play the piano. I was a beginner in every sense of the word. Now, I have not only a deep love and appreciation for music, but also an advanced musical capacity and repertoire. I have played pieces from a variety of styles and time periods, from Claude Debussy to Mozart to Hadyn to jazz and contemporary. I was able to have a personal high school senior recital and share this love and talent with others. In high school, I completed a music theory and composition course with ease.

I cannot recommend Anna enough. Her dedication and patience is unparalleled and she cares so deeply for her students. She is methodical, attentive, thoughtful, and is an absolute hidden gem of a teacher. Anna opened a world of music to me and I don’t think I can ever truly express how much that means to me. Not only am I a better musician because of her, but I’m also a better person. Her attention to detail and passion have challenged the way that I approach work and hobbies beyond just music.

Anna is particularly skilled as an educator. Beyond simply giving information for students to practice or memorize, she helps them apply the concepts to real musical pieces, guiding them along the way. Her calm but advanced method of teaching helps students advance quickly through musical concepts.

Over the past eleven years, I have spent literally hundreds of hours with Anna honing my craft. If anyone has seen the extent of her talent as a teacher, I’d like to think it’s me.

Five stars out of five stars. Always.
Grace
We are not going back for lessons with Anna. My daughter found her unfriendly and intimidating. Anna wasn’t very good about communicating with us. She finally sent an email to me on the day of the lesson. I felt she was rude. I’m glad she could not accommodate us. We were going to cancel appointments with her. My daughter is very shy. We will be looking for piano lessons elsewhere.

My daughter is a little intimidated. I’m hoping she softens up a bit
