I offer preparation to the ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) examinations.
I started my music education at the age of 7, at the Odessa College of Music in Ukraine. At age 16 I was accepted to the highly prestigious Odessa University of Music, where later I received my BA degree in Piano Pedagogy and Performance, Summa Cum Laude. I then decided to further my education and take a 2 year Piano Performance course at the Odessa Conservatory. For over 25 years thereafter, I am teaching students of all ages. I look to develop problem solving, multitasking and other intangible life skills for my younger students through the power of music.

What will music lessons do for you? Problem solving and Memorization: My students learn problem solving skills that they need to help them practice their instruments efficiently. Music helps students develop more areas of their brains and increases the capacity for better memory and problem solving. The skills they learn in their lessons can be applied to how they study for school and aid in memorization techniques. Music can also be similar to solving puzzles and putting it all together. Can't read music yet? Skills learned: I teach students how to read music and music theory as they learn their instruments.

I customize each lesson, keeping in mind the student’s level of interest, goals, and intent. I put great care into judging when to push, when to pull back, and when to stop altogether and regroup. Sometimes there is frustration and as a teacher it is very important to take that experience and turn it into a positive learning situation. During the course of a lesson, we’ll take a "breather" and simply talk about ...
