Piano is the general instruction of the instrument. I have taught lessons for over 23 years where I have been traveling to the homes. The students learn not only the general concepts but they also learn Theory which is the understanding of what lies underneath the music itself. I have an easy going personality with the students learning how to play the piano, but I also want the students to work to their full potential. The students learn not only the basics of the piano itself, but they also play fun songs, such as popular songs that they know.

I approach music lessons with flexibility. The joy of working one-on-one is that we can adjust the lesson to whatever the student brings to the table each time. Practiced a lot? Excellent! Show me what you can do. Having a difficult time with something? Not a problem; let me help. Feeling fatigued? It’s okay; I understand. We’ll take it a tad easier today. I’m sensitive to my students’ needs, and I’m more than happy to make learning an instrument accessible, whatever is going on. I offer 30-, 45-, and 60-minute lessons. 30 minutes each week is enough, and it’s a great place to start. More experienced students usually prefer 45- or 60-minute lessons. The longer the lesson, the more opportunities for repeated practice, covering more material, and faster overall progress. Whatever lesson length you choose, you’ll get a lot out of it! Prices are as follows: $35 / 30-minute lesson $45 / 45-minute lesson $55 / 60-minute lesson Generally, we start with a warm-up. Then, we proceed to go over the songs the student has been practicing since last time. I provide feedback and coaching. When we’re ready, we move on to new music and assign it for practice. I’m your guide as the music gets progressively more challenging. When time allows, we have several miscellaneous activities to choose from, such as theory, ear training, and review. We may also have a Disney book or something like that to work out of. My students typically work on the side on a range of music from outside the books, from video games, movies, memes, and pop music. I teach all my piano students with the Piano Adventures method book series by Nancy and Randall Faber. There are four different versions of the books, depending on at what age the student starts, from Young Beginners (ages 3-5) through Adults. I adore this series; I know it inside and out. More experienced students can also choose to incorporate more and more additional music into our lessons. Playing an instrument can be an absolute joy! Put in a little time consistently, and you will be amazed what you can do. Let’s take a moment to appreciate just a handful of benefits, just off the cuff. 1. The joy of observing progress and growth – fast. 2. Cultivation of creativity. 3. BRAIN POWER. 4. Constant opportunities for self-expression. 5. Reduces stress.

In our lessons, beginning students will learn to read music, play their favorite pieces, how to do warm ups and learn basic skills. I use sheet music and introductory books in my classes and assign homework for their daily practice. After 3 months, each student will move to the next level and continue learning more advanced skills. More advanced students will learn how to understand and compose music, put expression into the pieces they play and improve their current skills.

I am a master teacher focusing on the classical repertoire along with the very strong approache to improvisation. I am really helping each single student to achieve their interests in music rather than focusing on teaching one particular method. I just take a very similar approach to the Suzuki method but instead of teaching out of the method books I teach mixture of exercises and pieces that I believe are more fun and accessible to today student of any age. Classes are tailored to the needs of any particular student and constantly evolving. I am a true believer that this also enchances an understanding and love of classical music. A huge range of students come as beginners and left as a young artists as well as adult students Who came to learn piano and have found that they can perform professionally. And plus have a great deal of Fun! I also guide my students in the curriculum and exams of the Royal Conservatory program. Exams are offered twice a year. Also my students participating in Junior festivals and community recitals. I have also been a judge for Lake Central Junior festival which held in University of central Florida for over 8 years and an assistant for RC exams. Creativity and love of music are the key elements that I encourage in every single student. With my teaching skills and over 20 years of experience I am taking each single student beyond their own expectation while helping them to achieve their own goals. Bio: I am a professional pianist, teacher and composer. Because of my through knowledge and experience with music I can teach all ages and levels an array of important subjects including piano, music theory, , improvisation, composition, music history. My goal with every single student to incorporate all those subjects into my piano lessons so that every student gains a through understanding of music and become a well- rounded musician. I started piano lessons when I was 7 years old and quickly felt in love with the instrument. In spite of studying a very structured program I quickly began to explore my creative side and was always improvising on the piano as well as enjoying playing classical pieces. Throughout my youth I entered and placed in a few competitions. I was also involved with the band chorus, dance and drama and attended lots of concerts,plays, operas, ballets. It gave me a well-rounded artistic upbringing. I Persuaded my passione for music and graduated World renowned Moscow conservatory of music with Master’s degree in piano performance and teaching. My education tought me to understand piano in depth along with music theory and ear training. If you want to sit at the piano and play what you feel or to master every detail of a piece of music so you can express it exactly as composer intended? I can teach you. I completely encourage all ages and backgrounds to explore their musical passion and discover the endless possibilities of Piano!!!

I teach with an emphasis on learning and understanding the chords of music. Usually the lesson books are used for techniques and proper playing, but the real joy comes from playing the music that each student loves. I'm good at finding that music for every student even if I have to write the notes out myself. I want them to play what inspires them and develop a love of music for life.
