I have been teaching piano for about 20 years. My specialization is classical music, both European and Russian. Usually I pay a lot of attention to the correct positioning of hands, piano technique, theory and development of the student's musical ear. I work with students from beginner to high intermediate level, starting around age 7. I would be glad to convey to you my love for great ageless music and accompany it with hard workouts to develop finger dexterity. Perhaps your hands will sometimes hurt, but I promise you that you will have fun and be proud of yourself playing Mozart, Tchaikovsky or Chopin. My native language is Russian; I teach in Russian and English.
About Natasha J.

For many years I have lived and worked in Moscow. In addition to teaching piano, I played electric piano in a cover band and accompanied the singers. I helped some well-known Russian musical groups to make musical arrangements for the piano, and these collections were published. I have also created a collection of melodic exercises for mastering all keys - with it this part of music theory is fun and easy to learn. Regardless of where I live, I continue to play the piano and expand my repertoire. You are welcome to come to my class - I will share with you the best music!

Natasha is a truly outstanding piano teacher. As a child I took piano several times from various teachers and it was always difficult and boring and I never got anywhere with it. I think this is the experience that many of us have had in trying to learn an instrument. But with Natasha it was completely different. She has been my children’s teacher for about 4 months. They are 6 and 8 years old. Let me tell you, she is magic! Both my kids LOVE playing the piano now. They look forward to their lessons, they are learning to read and write music and my oldest even wrote a simple song without any prompting! She teaches in a way which breaks all the parts of playing the piano very easily and really engages the students. I would say she is the perfect combination of disciplined and caring. She has given my boys a love for music and a genuine interest in playing the piano. This is one of the best gifts I can think anyone could give a child. Our whole family loves Natasha and we are very thankful to have found her. Now I also want to take lessons with her!
