About Yuliya B.
Hello, thank you for your interest in taking music classes and reading my profile! :)
My name is Yuliya Borshchova,
Over the past 15 years, I have taught hundreds of classes both children and adults students. My specialties are:
3. Music Theory
4. Music composition and improvisation class
5. Ear training
Learning about music can be complicated and confusing especially when there are so many courses; different methods available just click away on the internet.
There are a lot to learn as notation, chords, rhythmical patterns, music terminology, music styles and so on.
It is like learning new language could be overwhelming and make many students give up on their dream.
Also learning on your own without any step by step instructions, easy- to follow method and goals in mind can make you frustrated and lose your motivation and enthusiasm very fast.
I've been studying music since I was 6 years old. First 7 years in Music school, then 4 years of Music college and another 4 years in Conservatory of Music in Kazakhstan. I graduated as a choir conductor, pianist, and vocalist. With 15 years of music studying and 15 years of teaching piano and voice to hundreds of students of all levels, I know all struggles and obstacles you might have and I know what works to overcome it and be the best musician you can be!
For me teaching music classes it's not just assignment to make my students understand the concept and develop skills, but much more;
1. First of all, I must know a student's need.
Why do you want to learn?
What is behind of that intention?
What is your goal and how I can help you reach it?
Sometimes we discovering it together in the process of learning setting new and new goals as you progress.
I will be able to help you better and take you to the direction you want to go to after identifying the starting point, where do we begin?
2. Second, I believe that any learning will be successful if you are having fun and a good time doing it, feeling encouraged. I'm very generous in praising to my students, high fives, hugs, stickers any anything to make my students feel good about accomplishing the even small assignment.
I also know that If you feel bored or frustrated you not going to stick for a long time with your commitment and you not going to learn anything.
Playing a musical instrument or singing is a very personal experience and I design my classes and choose music and techniques the way that it suits your level and fit your personality.
I try to make my classes fun, challenging and building the momentum so you can get most out the class and most importantly you are having fun while learning and engaged in the process.
3. Third, For my piano, voice and theory classes I use easy to follow the method of developing skills, techniques, and understanding of the concept. I always break challenging parts in small steps which make it easy to understand and learn.
4. Fourth, you will always have goals set up and quick start action plan which is broken into small easy assignments.
The quick start plan shows exactly how you can get going in record time and get off to a great start. For that purpose, I use different method books and different music pieces.
You have a clear direction what your goals are and how to achieve them and progress when you practicing on your own.
5. Teaching my students is not a job for me, it's enjoyment and commitment to share my passion for music and knowledge, inspire and encourage them. Music has changed my life and I hope I'll help you to change yours!
My goal is to make every class to be built around these 5 aspects mentioned above, as well as provide value, demonstrate and encourage.
My mission to make sure that my students learning at their own speed without any pressure, without feeling overwhelmed or frustrated, understanding the concept I am teaching to.
Also, I want to make sure that they are walking out of class with a sense of accomplishment and understanding the concept which is important for making progress and moving forward.
Lastly, I am committed to the success of my students and eager to build a long-term relationship with them.
I'm flexible and committed, some of my students have been with me
I am teaching one on one classes in my home studio here in North Miami Florida, or via Skype or Google+ Hangout, you could be anywhere in the world and take the class with me.
The time of the lessons may vary,
I usually suggest 30 min a trial lesson to meet and greet, as well as establish goals.
We will talk about the schedule and will set up a regular schedule around convenient time for both.
1. Beginners are taken through the fundamentals.
2. You will explore a range of pieces to expand your skills and begin to identify your preferences.
3. On first lesson, you will be learning new exercises to get you started and homework assignments.
4. Also, you going to get work/method book and practice plan
Good luck and hope I can help you to take piano playing, singing or music writing to the next level!

Julia made me feel so comfortable and confident in my voice. She help identify some trouble areas for me and focused on the techniques that will make me a better singer. I look forward to our next lesson. :)
The first singing lesson for my granddaughter was done with warmth and professionalism. Julia is talented and gentle with her approach. I have now added piano lessons to the schedule. This is a new experience for my granddaughter. I will gladly update the comments in one month with the progress.Show More
Julia is a wonderful teacher. she is great with kids. my daughter will be taking more lessons when she is a bit older. we started too young!
Julia is an amazing teacher, she makes every lesson easy to grasp by breaking down difficult exercises and concepts, also she notices mistakes quickly and doesn't hesitate to help you through them. I've taken three classical piano classes so far and am very pleased with my instructor and the results in my playing.Show More
I've had several piano teachers in the past but i would put Julia hands down as the best ive had. She is more than your typical teacher she is a mentor and a friend. She really cares about you reaching your goals and takes the time to find exactly what are your needs and ellaborate a strategy to acomplish them together. And aside from being an excellent teacher, she really is an excellent person that has cared and motivated me throught out my musical journey with her :) So you really cant go wrong choosing her as a teacher, wheter for piano, voice, accompaniment or anything that involves music!Show More
Julia is like the brightest star in the sky, from the first lesson I knew I was at the right place guiding me towards my dream. Her peacefulness and serenity while teaching really put you in a mood of trust and happiness. I am amaze at every session to discover her high level of skill and knowledge about music and voice teaching and will certainly take the piano lesson with her later.
Will certainly recommend her to anyone interested in these two area of art...truly an amazing teacher.
Thank you Julia, to believe. ..!
I gotta say Julia is a great instructor. She's excellent at communicating and getting information across. She's very knowledgeable and skilled, and she makes learning piano a great experience. Im really looking forward to future lessons with her!

My daughter is very happy taking piano classes with Julia. She is an excellent teacher! With only a few classes my daughter feels confident to play the piano. Thanks Julia!
Dear Mrs. Julia,
Thank you so much for teaching me how to sing correctly. I have so much fun learning with you. you are a fantastic teacher.
Thank you for your patience and encouragement. I am fortunate to have you as my music teacher,
I just want to let you know we just got back, and Sabrina's audition went very well!!!
When doing the sight reading part, Sabrina says she seemed to get it right :) using the solfeggio pattern you taught her. She said the other girl auditioning with her (the teacher was auditioning students in pairs), she did not know anything about sight reading. Sabrina felt very good to have been prepared.
When she was singing the classical piece you selected, the vocal director said that was exactly what she was looking for, YAY! So grateful to you!
I can't thank you enough!
I'm absolutely POSITIVE your classes have helped tremendously...Sabrina is much more confident and has improved noticeably since she first came to you. Not only that, you helped her come up with the songs, assisted her with sight reading, and provided beautiful accompaniment. We are very grateful to you!
Dear Julia, Thank you for all your support on piano lessons. You have done so much for me over the months. I remember when I did not know how to play piano and you bring me so far in playing piano
