I have been a music teacher for over 20 years and teach students from age 5 and up for both piano and voice. I am a certified ABRSM instructor and I have prepared many students for ABRSM exams both Practical and Theory through Level 8 in both singing and piano performance. I have also prepared many students for the NFMC Annual Festivals. Many of my students have become performing artists, won talent shows, received music awards with distinction, performed in Broadway shows and other plays internationally, and many were awarded college scholarships for music. I’d like to believe I inspire a love for music through my own passion for it. Taking lessons should be fun but we must also agree that it takes hard work and dedication to become a talented musician.

About Alla B.

Hello, my name is Alla . Age of 5 I was start taking piano classes, which I don’t likes ,bc all my friends played outside while I’m supposed to practice piano. Only patience of my teacher,her crazy love of music give me such a privilege opportunity to play and feel music. My goal is present musical not as a subject but sounds of world ! I’m graduated from Tashkent State Conservatory in Uzbekistan with a Master of Music in Choral Conductivity. I was the musical director of the Musical Cultural Art Center in Tashkent over 3 years,where I’ve received multiple recognitions for her excellent musical & drama repertoire. I have extensive experience working with young children. My journey start when I moved to Atlanta, GA in 1998 where I’m been with North Fulton School of Music for over 19 years. I’m very passionate about teaching and mentoring young musicians, seems as I’ve been teaching piano and voice all my life . I’ve recently moved to the Connecticut area and willing to share my over 25 years’ experience of teaching piano and voice lessons with students of all ages. I’m trying to give my students piano and vocal exercises and skills that they can bring home and work on every day. My commitment is to help my students be the best they can be while having fun! My background is in classical music but welcome to train in other styles as well. I’m emphasizes learning music theory along with sight-reading to ensure a well-rounded music education for my students.
My young student was 3 years old and the oldest one 75. I’m also have experience teaching group lessons (3-7 students) from early beginners to early intermediate level.
One of the main focus for me is to prepare students for ABRSM exams for both theory and practical piano/voice. I’m certified teacher of this program. The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) is the most popular music examination organization in the world. Each year, over 500,000 people worldwide take Associated Board Exams. Many musicians feel this is the most complete program offered in the world. It covers the following: Performance, Theory, Ear Training, Scales & Arpeggios, and sight-reading.
One of the student’s benefit is to have credits for colleges when student passes grade five practical and theory exam.

I was constantly encouraged and guided students to participate in any musical events to help them grow as musicians and gain experience performing in front of the judges. Through many years, my students have been participating in National Federation of Music Clubs (NFMC) Annual Festivals.Some of my students have earned NFMC awards Superior Trophy Cups , also I’m prepare students for All State chorus .
I’m truly hope that music will give my students fulfillment and joy that will last them a lifetime!

For 2019 year, I’ve been nominated as a Teacher of the Year of North Fulton School of Music in Alpharetta and Atlanta ,GA.

Ms. Alla has been such an amazing teacher for my son. In the past, I had to change multiple teachers as I found it challenging to keep my 11 year old son engaged and motivated to focus on his piano skills. Having found Ms. Alla, she provided Armaan the discipline he needed to stay on the course. Ms. Alla is a wonderful person and I love how she puts her heart and soul into her students and her teaching. I'm so excited to have found her for my son and I hope he can successfully pass the ABRSM Grade 1 exam under Ms. Alla's direction.

Ms. Alla is teaching my elder son classical piano for about two years now. She is the finest teacher my son can get. She does not only focus on piano lessons but also the aesthetics like seating posture, hand position etc. I will highly recommend Ms. Alla if anyone is interested to learn serious piano with strong foundation. Her teachings will stay for life.

Teacher provides clear details on the lesson. Even though it is online Alla gained the confidence in my child to continue with learning music, and looking forward for every lesson!There is a specific part of a lesson provides on theory and actually understanding musical
Notes and another part is playing which helped my daughter to work out her kinks .
Alla’s personality helps to feel warm and want to learn more. She brings fun to the virtual learning and continues to teach all important things for my 8 year old. My daughter is learning more now than she did in person with a group! I highly recommend Alla for your next virtual music learning experience . It is very important to have balanced the lesson to cover notes , theory , and technical and I feel Alla provides that every time for my child at each lesson with so much fun, and ease!

Ms. Alla is truly an amazing teacher and has helped me to achieve many things with piano. I have been learning from her for almost 7 years now, and with her help, I have been able to earn 5 years of Distinction for the GA Federation and pass the ABRSM Practical Exams until Grade 4 with high marks. I am grateful for all that she has done for me and know any student of hers in the future will gain so many new opportunities to prosper in their musical career!

My two daughters, 14 and 12 years old, learnt from her for 6 years. My 14 years old daughter is so lazy, but Ms. Alla disciplined her properly. Without her, she never continued learning piano. My 12 years old daughter now loves playing piano, she looks for her favorite music scores and plays on her own fun. She is sometimes a bit scary, but we need it for some occasions. We miss you a lot!

Ms. Alla is one of the best piano teachers I have ever had. She plans so much ahead that a student’s work will be to just follow her instructions. She guides and brings out the best music talent out of a person. She is so caring and available for her students to clarify all the doubts. She sets goals based on each student’s capability and ensures that the goals have been met. She is so organized that many times apart from my music lessons, I have realized how important it is to be well organized. I had the privilege of having her as Piano teacher for 4 years and she has helped me sail through until Grade 4. She helped me get a distinction and also Top Scorer award for ABRSM Grade 4 Piano in my state. It is a very great achievement according to me and it wouldn’t have been possible without her. Miss you a lot Ms. Alla!

Ms. Alla is an amazing piano teacher and greatly improved my piano practical/theory abilities over the course of almost 5 years as her student. She is patient, challenging, and passionate about music. She is experienced with advanced students (helped me earn a distinction on the ABRSM Grade 7 piano practical exam), and taught me to love piano and music in general. I really enjoyed my lessons with her!
