My two kids, ages 11& 9 have been taking piano lessons from Artyom for about a year and they have improved so much. My favorite part about him is that he gives honest feedbacks. My kids says he tells exactly what they need to work on! He is very passionate about helping my kids learn and appreciate music so we feel lucky he is our teacher!!
