Teodora is the most gifted pianist I've met. I took piano lessons with her for about 4 years while I was in high school. I had been playing guitar since the age of 5 but was interested in getting into piano as a way to diversify my musical knowledge and understand more about theory. I learned a tremendous amount during those 4 years and more importantly I learned to enjoy what I was doing. The class environment was always productive but relaxed, and Teodora is super easy to talk to so it was always easy to engage with the material and understand it well. I'm now studying Electronic Production and Sound Design at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and my lessons with Teodora definitely helped give me the confidence to apply and choose music as a career path.
