Teaching since:
September 1997

At the age of fifteen, Ms. Regina graduated with honors from the Z. Paliashvili Special Music Gymnasium for Gifted Children in Tbilisi, Georgia. As a student of a famous Georgian pianist, Tengiz Amirejibi, she presented her country in numerous competitions. (Tengiz Amirejibi was a student of Heinrich Neuhaus, a famous Russian teacher and pianist.)

As a child, Ms. Regina gave many solo recitals and concerts with the Georgian Symphonic Orchestra. Ms. Regina earned her Doctorate of Musical Arts with emphasis on Advanced Piano Performance from the Yerevan State Conservatory. After graduating, she worked with talented children in her alma mater for many years. Later in her professional career, Ms. Regina taught at the Tbilisi State Conservatory as well as the Moscow Music Gymnasium.

With more than eighteen years of professional teaching experience, Ms. Regina is able to offer her students a diverse range of educational resources. She specializes in teaching piano, performance, and music theory to students of all ages and levels.

Ms. Regina's teaching techniques are based on a combination of the famous Russian Music School (based on music giants such as Konstantin Igumnov, Daniel Barenboim, and Heinrich Neuhaus) and the American Music Education System. This combination allows each student to work at a pace comfortable for him/her, and helps all students make significant progress in the areas of sight reading, ear training, and performance skills.

***Teaching Schedule***
Ms. Regina teaches in her Glendale studio and the surrounding areas every day of the week except for Saturdays. She teaches in her Orange County studio located in Fountain Valley on Saturdays.

Regina is wonderful. My son has only been playing for a few months and the ease with which she teaches and instructs leaves him feeling successful and motivated. I would recommend her to anyone.

Regina is a wonderful Russian teacher! She goes out of her way to prepare challenging but accessible lessons, and she is patient and encouraging. I am impressed with how seriously she takes her job, her skill as a teacher, and her connection with me as a student.

We just switched teacher and absolutely thought Regina is wonderful with my 6 years old daughter. Regina is patience, took time out to assign home work but most importantly, Regina recognized where my daughter's trouble was to slow down and help her to improve in that area.

My daughter said she enjoyed your teaching. What a great way to start.

Thank you!

I love it!

Ms. Regina is a very experienced, fun, and encouraging teacher. She explains everything very clearly. Other teachers's lessons are usually boring, Ms. Regina's are so much fun! I am really happy Ms. R is my teacher. Recommend her to anyone.
