My goal is to make piano learning a fun and interactive experience for you. I want you not just to learn piano by book, but to be able to “speak” music as it is your second language. That’s why the emphasis in my lessons will be on ear training, improvisation, learning chords, and different piano techniques. At the same time, I will acquaint you with music theory, as well as teach you how to sight read scores and lead sheets. In no time you will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills that will make you confident in playing piano. You will be able to play pieces not only by famous classical composers but also pieces that are popular in today’s culture. You will also acquire improvisation skills that will make you confident in creating your own music.


Piano has been a huge part of my life since I was six. I attended a music school in Ukraine where I was trained to become a professional performer with classical repertoire being my main specialty. I have performed for many concerts as well as been part of many competitions which made me confident in my skills.

I have accompanied for various events such as school graduations, school musicals, school choir, competitions, auditions, church events, Sunday services, and holiday events.

I have over 8 years experience in teaching piano to beginner and intermediate levels. I believe that it is a teacher's duty to instill the passion in students by finding a unique and creative way to get them engaged. I combine different methods when teaching music because that each student's learning experience and interest level is different. I usually want to get to know the person and try to establish connection and then I proceed to finding out what method will work best for them.

Talented and patient, I had wanted to get back into playing piano for years now and thanks to Olha, I have regained my interest in relearning it.
