I incorporate music theory into all of my piano lessons as it gives the student a greater understanding of music and how it all works. I use method books that coordinate what they have learned to play that lesson with the same concept in the theory book. For example, if the student has just learned how to play eighth notes, then in the lesson book he/she will learn how to play a song that has eighth notes and in the theory book they will have activities and games that reinforce the same concept (in this case, eighth notes.)
I have taken college level theory and ear training, so I can also help tutor any student who is having trouble with music theory or ear training :)

Passionate about sharing my love of the guitar with students of all ages, I've been teaching for more than 30 years. A trained Flamenco guitarist, I found, at the tender age of 7, my passion when I heard the world-renowned Flamenco guitarist Sabicas. Studying Flamenco since then, I began, during my teens, performing professionally and have had the honor of performing with such nationally known musicians as Billy Bang (legendary fiddle player), Willy Calhoun (Living Colour), Vassar Clements Band, Tom Chapin, Stanley Jordan, Buddy Miles, and Michael Powers. In high school, I enrolled in an Honors Musicianship class at the RiverDell, NJ, Senior High where I learned to read scores, conduct and identify multiple instruments, sight read, orchestrate scores and compose music.

I can teach how to compose music as well as analyze the works of other composers.

Both teaching and performing have always been a large part of my life.

During the period from 1977-89, I held the position of principal Clarinet in the St. Petersburg Symphony and Kiev State Opera orchestras. At the same time, I worked as a professor at the Kiev State Music Academy.
