Valeriya has been a great cello teacher for me, as a beginner student. She has helped me to build a strong foundation in basic skills and inspired my confidence. Valeriya is kind and personable, and at the same timer honest in providing constructive criticism. Each lesson, she takes detailed notes to support me in my practice throughout the week. Last but certainly not least, she is flexible with her schedule and always punctual.

I feel very fortunate to be her student. Her teaching style is thoughtful, kind and full of humor. As an an adult beginner student with her I am learning the importance of correct posture, arm and hand position but also understanding meaningful playing comes from soft and supple and not fom tension and strain. I only feel encouraged by her patient, enthusiastic and expert approach.

I have had several teachers over the years and Valeriya is by far the most knowledgable, patience, listens to your needs for understanding and reading the music and so much fun to be around ! She takes the time to really show you the proper way of holding the cello, and getting the most sound and enjoyment of this instrument. I give her 5+ rating and plan on having her as my teacher for years to come... Thank you Valeriya!!!
