I can provide you with constructive critique as you progress in your work. This also helps motivate students to take a step back and objectively look at where they are now and how far they have come with their work. As a person who is constantly evolving as an artist myself, it is important to bounce ideas off of others to help you improve and get a better understanding on how to develop your own style with your art.

I enjoy the impact art of any kind has on society and others. Art can be used to communicate many things and in many different forms. Also art is subjective and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Not everyone will love your art expression but it is important that you're passionate about your work.

I enjoy learning through interactions with others and the way they perceive their surroundings. My passion for art started when I was very young.

Currently I am the author and illustrator and designer behind a brand of children's products. My background ...

I am trained in Russian technique using relaxation movements that prevent painful cramps in wrist and forearm. I have been teaching primarily children from age 4 in music schools and homes since 1987. I like to motivate them by letting them choose their favorites, like songs from Disney movies or some other popular songs. I am very patient and encouraging. I am happy when I see love for music growing in hearts of students.

About Katarina

I attended six years at State Conservatory and graduated with Magister degree from Comenius University in former Czechoslovakia. I performed during my college years with a chamber vocal-instrumental ensemble. I started teaching piano and music theory in 1987 at a music school and later I was giving

Kyle Mitchell
Ms. Lalinska has been a great teacher! I'm pretty new to piano and she's been nothing but patient throughout our lessons. I've found that after learning some basic music theory on chords I'm all the more interested in improving. She has also been flexible in scheduling, which is particularly important due to my shifting schedule. Highly recommend!
Tomas Kratka
Katarina has been a fantastic teacher, helping me get to learn the basics of piano while teaching me how to play with a relaxed technique to preserve my hands and forearms -- I work on a computer all day so I will sometimes get cramped hands.
Jessica
Katarina is very knowledgeable about piano and theory, having studied and taught for many years. She uses the Russian technique and teaches excellent technical skill. She is patient and fair, and above all, a wonderful teacher!!

"I’ve done both in-home & remote lessons with Chris. Chris is a really great teacher, with a deep knowledge of music theory and technique, but also the ability to adjust that to whatever level you’re coming in at. I was a near complete beginner with a lot of anxiety about playing in front of other people when we started and Chris was able to work through that with me with a lot of humor and kindness. His agenda is to work with his students on songs they are interested in learning, and along the way weave in lessons on how notes and chords work, which I’ve really enjoyed. He also teaches bass guitar to my teenage daughter, who really enjoys her lessons and has improved greatly since they began. I highly recommend Chris."

She makes it easy for him to understand how to read notes and how to play them in such a fun way. We were just going to try 8 sessions, but after just 2 sessions, we would like to continue for more. We just love her! I'm glad she had an opening when we were looking for a teacher."
