I enjoy connecting with you! If you have a question about any of the subjects I teach or my teaching, please feel free to use the “Ask a Question” feature and I’ll respond as soon as possible.

Nadia is a fine instructor. Take it from me who's been coached in many sports - tennis, skiing , riding, swimming. AM is a sport, too, in that the student has to do most of the work. Nadia tells us what to do to improve, but it's up to us to practice.

In just one lesson, my daughter learned so much and gained the confidence to work through a difficult piece of music!

First lesson in, and I already feel like the goals for myself are more than attainable under the tutelage of Nadia. I learned so much in my first thirty minutes. I can't wait to go back.
