My daughter is seven and she really looks forward to piano lessons with Svetlana. She knows how to get down on the child's level and help them understand. You can tell that Svetlana really enjoys teaching!

Wonderful first lesson. My little one enjoyed Lana's teaching skills. My little one learned quite a bit in her first session. Fabulous!

I've taken private lessons with Svetlana for several years and I love her teaching style as well as the results. At first I only wanted to learn because my parents pushed me, but now I continue to play piano and I love even Classical Music, something I would not have expected to get out of lessons.
