Michael R.

Albany, NY

About Michael

As a recent graduate of the Conservatory of Music at SUNY Purchase, I have been a performing classical pianist for nearly 20 years. I hold a Masters Degree in Piano Performance, and have had the great
advantage of studying with many of today's top classical musicians, including Steven Lubin, Stephanie Brown, Paul Ostrovsky, Julia Lichten, and Stuart Isacoff. I've won many top prizes in competitions and have performed extensively throughout New York State. I'm very lucky to have had the opportunity to perform for the Governor, and both NYS Senators.

Having taught music since the age of 15, I am also an experienced and motivated teacher. Nothing excites me more than sharing my love and knowledge of music with others. Whether you are looking to boost your NYSSMA score, and compete in competitions, or are just starting out, I can tailor lessons to your specific level and musical interests. Being in my 20's, I have a great rapport with children, and adults alike.

Wonderful first lesson! He was very warm and kind and my daughter felt very happy with his instruction. He took the time to discover her musical interests which set the right tone with her from the start.

Polina D.

Schenectady, NY

About Polina

I am an experienced classical pianist with honorable degrees obtained from the most prestigious musical institutions in the world - State Academy of Music (Russian conservatory of music) located in Mi
nsk, Belarus, as well as The College of Saint-Rose, Albany, New York, Unites States. Piano has been my main area of concentration since I was five years old, so I consider myself to be a top professional in the music field.

I really enjoy working with highly motivated students and welcome various ages and levels. I have worked both with professional musicians and beginner level music enthusiasts. As a teacher and piano soloist, I have worked in various countries including Russia, Italy, France and the United States. My international teaching experience has been showing wonderful results, and I am proud of my students winning the highest places in the international auditions, competitions and festivals worldwide.

My thoroughly developed teaching method is built on the best combination of Russian and European traditions in music education, and it is intended to build and advance skills in reading, technique, theory, to enrich music appreciation by exploring compositions of variety of styles and genres, to discover the internal abilities and approach to an instrument, and master performing techniques.

Just had my first lesson and was coming in with no prior experience. I learned a tremendous amount of information within the 30 minute lesson; much more than originally anticipated; including how to read the notes pertaining sound and how long each not plays in addition to identifying where the keys are positioned by using the black keys as a reference and centering with the C key while moving up and down the notes A through G. Polina is a great encouraging instructor and I'm excited for follow-up lessons.
