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.

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 the best teacher to a student who is motivated to learn. She makes individualized lesson plan for each student. She works for perfection and looks after their progress diligently. I wish I can continue learning from her. She has been the most critical person who made my piano journey possible. Miss you 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!
