Overview

I began studying piano and music theory when I was 5. My father was an accomplished musician (classical and folklore) who played great role in my accomplishment as a pianist and teacher

While studying in Music College, I took part in various festivals and competitions. I performed several piano concertos with symphonic orchestra. Some of them are: Mozart Piano Concerto No 20 in D minor, Saint-Saens Piano Concerto No 2 in G minor, Schumann Piano Concerto in A minor Op 54 pt. Parallel with my studies in College I gave piano lessons in classical music. I accomplished my studies with honors.
I traveled and taught music in different countries: United Kingdom, Central and Eastern Europe which helped me gain great experience how to teach students with different background

I got my MA from the Institute of Public Affairs (GIPA). My studies were focused on education administration and management. This helped me manage class in most efficient and effective way , plan lessons and develop curricula.

I would eagerly take students from all age groups and backgrounds and involve them in the most exciting process of self accomplishment.

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy teaching all ages 5 and up with different abilities, needs and requirements and develop plans to fit each individual. I have very friendly atmosphere in the class. I design certain games for children to enable them to better understand music language, theory and develop practical skills. I spend much time on ear training, rhythm development, music structure, music theory and performance.

In a 3 month period students will be able to understand different scales, basics of music theory and performance and will be able to perform classical pieces e.g. Bach’s inventions, Mozart’s and Beethoven’s little sonatas for piano etc

Nino is an incredible piano teacher. I’ve learned so much in my classes with her. When I first started taking piano lessons (about six months ago), I knew very little about music other than that I liked certain songs more than others. At the time, I assumed that I wasn’t musically inclined (at least that’s what people told me) and I was hoping that by taking piano lessons, I would be able to engage more with the music that I love.

Since taking her classes she’s taught me: the construction of music through music theory, to read music, scales for all of the keys, chords, to play some of my favorite songs, and to begin to compose, write, and rearrange my own music.

As a pianist, Nino is very accomplished--as you can see in her YouTube videos. Her lessons are clear and concise, and if you follow her instruction, you will improve quickly. Nino’s has ambitious expectations, and she will push you to get better. She is also very dependable. She’s never canceled a lesson on me, and when I arrive, she is always sitting by her piano, waiting for me.

I’ve tried taking music lessons in the past, and I’ve struggled to find a teacher who has more than one or two of these qualities. It’s great to have a teacher like Nino, who has all of them. If you’re serious about exploring and developing your love for music, regardless of your level, I highly recommend that you hire Nino as your music teacher. Musically, it might be the best choice you’ll ever make. I know it has been for me.

My first lesson with Nino was very positive. I feel like I learned so much in a such a short time. She is very patient, encouraging, and practical.I am looking forward to my next lesson and I am excited to see how great of a pianist I can become with her effective teaching.
