Last sign in: Today


At age of 6, I began extensive professional piano training and have been performing around same age too. Since 1993 I hold Bachelors Degree in Music with Major in Piano Performance and Pedagogy.

I've been teaching piano to all ages and levels for over 20 years. I love teaching and I'm very patient and kind.

I believe in the power of music to reach deep into the human personality.
I would like to inspire and educate my students in general music knowledge and introduce them to the
beautiful atmosphere the piano instrument creates.
I have participated in numerous competitions and recitals with my students, where many of my students have won awards.

I'm a highly experienced Piano Teacher and active performing Concert Pianist.

I'm also available to accompany students for recitals, concerts, etc.

*** Lesson Details ***
It is my passion to teach music, investing in the lives of students and using music to cultivate their growth.

It is so important that all my students get out of the lessons what they want and be happy. For ex. I choose some piano pieces and I play for the student, and the student can choose the one that likes more, or if a student has a particular piece that really wants to learn then I explain that and find creative ways to allow that student to meet their goal.
This technique would work for the student, pushes them to practice more and enjoy that. With experience in classical and contemporary music, my teaching philosophy is to build strong technique, to develop musicality, to improve sight-reading skills, and to give to my students good knowledge of theory.

I will train for competitions, recitals or just for fun.

I enjoy teaching all levels (beginners - very advanced) and abilities.

I'm very friendly, patient and believe that anyone can learn to play piano and love their lessons.

This istructor is a definate 10

My instructor ( Malda Keri) is extremely well qualified as an instructor. She is patient, understanding an has a sense of humor. I am a senior with a visual deficiency and she always seems to take that into consideration during my practice sessions. She has been with me for 6 months and I feel major progress.
