Zachary has such a positive and encouraging way with our son. He is clearly a very talented musician -- yet he is humble and has said he is always still learning all the time. From the first lesson, he provided persistent guidance for improving with patience and compassion. He is a gifted teacher. We are very happy to have found him!

With 10 years of training and experience I am able to help students reach their potential, no matter what level they start at. I have received training from Nina Yelisheva, Marcia Swanson and Lucy Davis among others.
I am trained in classical, musical theatre and jazz singing. From the age of 14 I have been trained through a groundbreaking Italian voice technique that will help students expand their vocal range, gain confidence in their singing abilities and learn to control their voice.

Q&A:

Q.: Do you teach bi-weekly lessons?

A.: No, I do not give bi-weekly lessons, and require all of my students to take at least 4 lessons a month to be able to join my studio.

Q.: What happens if I miss a lesson?

A.: My studio policy is that all of my students are required to give me an at least 24-hour notice if they will be missing their lesson for any reason with the exception of illness or family emergencies. It is the student's responsibility to reschedule the lesson for the ...

** 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.

Milton had a great lesson with Vitaly! Looking forward to the next ones! :)
Christina
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.

"I am so blessed to have met with Dr. Galer!! Having a lifelong dream to sing has been something I've always wanted to pursue but something that has always felt so intangible to pursue. She is incredibly patient and kind and has the keen ability to help reach her students in the unique way each one can understand and grasp. Through working with her, I find myself growing and stretching as a singer in ways I didn't think were possible for me. She definitely pushes you and challenges you to grow while also doing it in a loving way that supports your journey. Highly recommend."

She gave me very specific practice instruction personalized for me and my voice and is putting it into a google drive spreadsheet which I really appreciate.
