Teaching since:
June 2000

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.

Nino, is a gentle and patient soul. She is very intuitive to one's needs and immediately corrects you on the spot, which is good for perfection. She wants you, the student to get it, and she uses her professional aptitude to push you to a higher octave.

I highly recommend her for your piano training. I, myself, wouldn't mind her being my instructor again in the future.

Learned so much with only one lesson a week!

Nino is a fabulous teacher. Her ability to teach and help my daughter understand classical music as well as appreciate it is amazing. Nino has a wonderful gift that she shares with her students. My daughter had two other piano teachers when she was younger but was able to learn with Nino. Nino has a lot of patience and stands behind her work. We are so thankful to Nino. My daughter loves playing piano so much that she is even thinking about majoring in it. Thank you Nino for being such a wonderful teacher!

Excellent teacher

I have been taking lessons with Niño for about 6 months.
Not only has it been a great learning experience but also a very enjoyable one. Each lesson is focused to my needs, technical and otherwise and I come away with a good feeling of accomplishment.
My piano playing is progressing and no doubt will continue to progress with Niño as my teacher. She is highly recommended.

Honest opinion on my lessons so far

Ms. Nino is an excellent teacher,she gives details on how to improve my technique and how to be one with the music,to play from the heart not from the sheet music .And to add on to that Ms. Nino shows me different techniques and skills i should work on every week so it's never robotic practice and by the end of every lessons something new is always learned.From my personal experience with her it has been great so far honestly.

PROFESSIONAL!

My daughter has been a student of Nino's for over two months. She previously played for over three years and Nino has taught her things that she never learned before. She is a master in classical music, very patient and professional. My daughter looks forward to her weekly lessons. She is lucky to have her as a teacher.

Nino is an excellent music teacher. She is very knowledgeable and skillful but what I like most about her as a music teacher is that she is very patient and empathetic to any mistakes. She understands that I am just learning. She is very nice, down to earth and has a great personality. I highly recommend her as a music teacher.

Glad I am Ms. Nino's student

Ms. Nino assesses the capability of the student quickly and tailor-makes the lessons accordingly. She is patient with the mistakes made and makes sure to point them out politely and gets the student to play correctly. She is appreciative of good performance in the class. She is clear in what she teaches. And makes every minute of the class worthy. What more can a student expect from a good teacher?

Nino is amazing and nothing less! I take both piano and singing lessons with her. She's very talented and encourages you to embrace your own talent. I thought learning how to play the piano would be simple, and I was proven wrong. However, she makes everything so easy to understand. I realized how ahead of my piers I am and I love it!
