I am a dedicated teacher with total commitment to the success of my students. I have BA in Piano, and MA in Piano Pedagogy from Ukraine.
I have a naturally warm personality, ability to connect to each student easily and create a professional atmosphere during my lessons. I've been teaching piano for 15 years both in my home studio and in various schools, Do-Re-Mi school among them.
Many of my students participate in the Golden Key Festival and Concert International Music Festival and perform at Carnegie Hall and Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Ella is a truly exceptional and magnificent teacher. I could not have asked for a better instructor, mentor, and friend. She has taught me so much in the 6 months I have been her student, and I intend to learn even more in the years to come. Ms. Yudin always encourages me to do my best, and she always has a smile on her face; you can tell she loves her job! Whenever anybody asks who taught me the art of music, I enthusiastically recommend Ella. I couldn't imagine learning from anybody else!

Ella is a wonderful teacher. She truly loves what she does, and it shows in the way she teaches. My daughter responds so well to her. Ella has a warm, positive approach to teaching, but is gently strict when she needs to be, and is clearly a pro at what she does. We tried a teacher before Ella, but her communication style was just not right for children. Thanks to Ella, my daughter actually enjoys playing piano, looks forward to doing her "homework," and is learning so much at the same time. I would highly recommend Ella to anyone as a piano teacher.

Both my kids 7 and 9 enjoy their lessons with Ms Ella. Ms Ella is very talented and works really well with kids, she understands how they think, she encourages them and motivates them to feel the emotion of the music. Both of them are doing very well under her tutelage.

Ella has been giving my nine-year old daughter weekly piano lessons for at least five years. What really impresses me about Ella is that she is not just teaching my daughter piano, but, in the process, helping her grow up into a young adult. Ella demands the best out of her while showing patience and understanding. In short, I feel lucky that Ella is my daughter's teacher. I highly recommend her.
