Illya's vision: “I treat all my students as unique individual and always try to find a flexible methods that can bring out the best from every piano player. In my lessons I always try to find each student's weaker areas and focus on those towards achieving a balanced progress.”
Over the years Illya has developed a unique teaching method that focuses on balanced development of 3 key areas of piano playing – Mind, Technique and Heart.

Mind – development of sight reading, consistency and speed of focus, concentration and memory.

Technique – development of hands and fingers strength, endurance and agility. Illya has developed numerous unique piano exercises that help students achieve better progress in developing sound piano technique.

Heart – focusing on associative imagination and constant emotional engagement while playing the piano. Every single note of every masterpiece has a meaning and it is the responsibility of every performer to make sure that every note “speaks” to the listener. Music is an unspoken language of subtle emotions – it can convey feelings and states that no other means of communication can.
