About Anastasia
After Anastasia’s Carnegie Hall Debut in 2006, the New York Concert Review wrote: "For a critic, hearing a new pianist with a truly warm, luscious tone is like breathing in the scent of jasmine blooming - a pleasure to be recalled again and again - and so I'm happy to report that from the first note she touched at her Weill Hall recital, Anastasia S. was a genuine pleasure to listen to. Every piece, every measure, every note - no matter how complex the texture, no matter how many strands of melody and accompaniment - was wrapped in a halo of golden tone..."

Born in Kiev, Ukraine, Anastasia S. gave her first solo recital at the age of eleven. Ms. S. is a graduate of the Hochschule für Musik Würzburg, Germany, and holds a Master’s and a Doctorate degrees from The Hartt School at the University of Hartford.

In 2003 Anastasia received
First Prize in the 14th International Piano Competition for Young Pianists in Rome, Italy, and was awarded a Special Prize. In year 2006 Ms. S. won the Puigcerda International Piano Competition in Spain. In the same year she recorded the complete works for piano and orchestra by Balakirev with the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra for NAXOS records. In 2008 Ms. S. received the “Outstanding Award”, which granted her a return engagement to give a second solo recital at Carnegie Hall in New York City. In 2010 Anastasia was awarded a Special Prize for the best interpretation of French composition at the International Piano Competition “Parnassos” in Mexico. Her solo recital in 2008 at the Myra Hess Concert Series in Chicago was broadcast live on WFMT Radio, in Internet, and on the TV-Station “Channel 25“; Anastasia was invited to play there again in 2011. Her career continues with numerous appearances as a soloist both in concertos with orchestra, in solo recitals, and in chamber music concerts in Ukraine, Germany, Macedonia, Italy, Switzerland, France, Russia, USA, and Japan. Anastasia’s recent engagements included a performance at the Bolshoi Hall of Moscow Conservatory as well as solo appearances with orchestras in the United States and Germany featuring concerti by Prokofieff, Mozart, Grieg, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, and Stravinsky. In 2014 her new CD "Music of Russian-Jewish composers for oboe and piano" was released. Currently, Anastasia is working on her two new solo CD's for Centaur Records.

In 2013, Anastasia was granted the Extraordinary Abilities in the Arts permanent US residence, as one of a small percentage of those who have risen to the top in their field of endeavor. Anastasia served as an Adjunct Faculty in Piano and Chamber Music at the Hartt School, and is currently on faculty of the New England Conservatory in Boston.

I offer scholarships for advanced level students upon request.

As an adult beginner, I chose Anastasia for more personalized instruction, especially in technique, after learning the basics through community center group lessons. I have not continued only because another equally well-qualified instructor who lives close by, within walking distance, has become available. I am very pleased with the lessons and pointers that I have received. Anastasia is professional, encouraging, and friendly. An especially helpful part of her instruction is the set of comments and suggestions that she writes down to guide practice between lessons. If the neighbor instructor does not work out, I’ll be back.

- Intermediate: Harmony (Basic Western-European Harmony & Basic Contemporary or Jazz Harmony)
- Advanced: College Level Harmony

Intermediate and Advanced Level of my class will enable you to write your own music and improvise.

About Eunhye
Dual Major in Piano Performance (Classical/Jazz Study) and Film Scoring at Berklee College of Music

Studied with professor
Ed Bedner (Doctoral Studies at BU)
Vadim Neselovskyi (International Pianist/Composer)

*** Lesson Details ***
1. Piano

- Relaxation Technique: Maximize your performance ability that you already have. (It takes a week to master it, and I will walk you through how you will be applying to the pieces you work on)

- Classical Repertoire: Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, and more! If you have a school recital, we can work on these masters' pieces. You will be not only memorize and play, but also express as if it were your own music.

- Jazz & Improvisation: Beginner to Intermediate level (pre-college level) Learning jazz gives you a great foundation to play any kinds of contemporary music; R&B, Dance, Folk, etc.
E
ach lesson will give you hands-on exercises along with insights to delve into your creativity. It is highly important to determine what each student's goal is in order to design the course. So, please consult with me!

- Recital Preparation, College Application Prep.

* * * * *

2. Singing

- Optimal Singing Body

Although the health of your body is crucial in performing any kinds of instruments, singing needs your body to be the most optimal condition because Your Body Is Your Instruments.

I will help you to keep up with taking care of your body in terms of singing. There are techniques that you can learn to maximize your singing ability. I will share them with you each session.

- Finding your Own Voice

We will work together to discover what styles that suit your voice most. And, we will get your unique voice emerge, so that you don't try to sing like someone, but you actually sing it.

- Basic Musicality - pith, rhythm, expressions!
Even when you are physically ready, if your brain doesn't understand what you are hearing and singing, you aren't going anywhere. Ear training with me will improve this area, for sure.

* * * * *

3. Composition

- Theory that prepares you to Compose:

To get you ready to compose, you need to know a bit about 'Harmony, Counterpoint', which has been a powerful tool for generations. If you are not going to master classical composition, however, it can be overwhelming. I will walk you through the most important materials that you need to know to start your composition.

- Your Actual Compositions Down!
We will work together to finish your compositions either on paper, recording or both at the end of the semester. You will be proud of yourself to have your portfolio!

* * * * *

4. Combinations
I also offer the combination of each area described above.
I recommend to spend at least 30 min for each area though.

Thank you so much for reading the introduction. I would be really happy to hear from you and to have a chance to improve our "music life" together eventually.

In Music Theory Lessons students will learn how the music they love is written. Students will explore the relationships between intervals, keys, form, and composition.

Part of composition involves starting with counterpoint. Any student who wishes to delve deeper into counterpoint will work up their skills through inventions and fugues.

About Alexander
My name is Alexander, a recent graduate of The Boston Conservatory M.M. in Cello Performance program. I love teaching students of all ages and abilities the joys of practicing, playing, and performing on the cello. I am an avid performer of solo, orchestral, and chamber music. I spent the final year of my undergraduate studies researching ways to more effectively teach chamber music.

My teaching philosophy puts a strong emphasis on mindfulness, which results in superb technical development and allows the student to make their musical mark on the works they perform. I encourage all students to engage in music making beyond the practice room and share the gifts they have. I realize that many students begin playing instruments during formative times in their lives. Through their musical journey, students learn much about themselves, and t
heir lessons help them to gain confidence in who they are. I look forward to mentoring this journey.

Alexander has been teaching my 13 year old son cello for the past 8 months. He is by far the best instructor we have ever had. He is the perfect blend of patient, understanding, encouraging, and talented. I love that he praises what is done well and corrects what needs more work. There isn't anyone that I would trust with my child's musical education more than Alexander.
