- Ages 9+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I am a professional concert pianist, composer and transcriber.
Graduated from Tchaikovsky Moscow Conservatory with Doctor of Music Arts equivalent degree; Yale School of Music with Artist Diploma.
I am a member of the piano faculty at the Moscow Conservatory, soloist of Moscow Philharmonic. Performed at major concerts halls such as Carnegie Hall, Berlin Philharmonie, the Grand Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, Tchaikovsky Hall of the Moscow Philharmonic and many others.
My teaching experience is about 10 years, at the piano department of the Moscow Conservatory. My concert stage experience is more 20 years.
My skills are not limited to any specific epoch or style. But I am deeply in love with Russian music and I would love to share with my students my knowledge and understanding of such a rich cultural layer of 19-20 centuries.
Vyacheslav is the complete music teacher. He is a deeply analytical artist and is extremely perceptive and helpful. His style is at once humanistic and disciplined - he is a master artist AND technician. He goes out of his way to help you beyond the duration of your lessons and encourages you to think and explore. Seize the opportunity to work with him if you get it. I guarantee it will be time well-spent.+ Read More
Having opportunity to work with Mr. Gryaznov, who is a top class performer, is such a privilege. His tremendous experience, both as concert pianist and pedagogue, makes him quite unique. I believe that every student can benefit working with Mr Gryaznov, as he shares his knowledge, talent and advices in a such sincere way.
Having recording sessions in Gryaznoff studio was for me, equally enjoyable process. Relaxed and warm atmosphere, professional equipment, together with the brilliant Hamburg D Steinway makes this studio one of the best of its kind in the heart of New York.
He is not only an amazing pianist, but also very touching teacher for me. He believes my ability and musical potentiality even when I could not trust myself. He waits for me to find my music myself. That really encourages me a lot. Also, I can take a look the way he makes his music. He is such a inspiration!+ Read More
Slava is more than a great pianist - he is a versatile musician and lovely human being. You will learn a great deal not only about technique but also about the composer's background and the piece's historical context.
Besides being a thrilling and inspirational performer, Vyacheslav is an innately gifted teacher who becomes absorbed in the student and their personal approach.
Easily able to communicate his ideas and concepts as well as drawing out from the student their ideas and thoughts. He is a treasure and recommended without reservation
It has been my great privilege and luck to have a musician of this caliber as a teacher. Vyacheslav's highly individualized approach to the needs of his students, and his remarkable ability to put any student at ease and at the same time give corrective feedback is something that is extremely valuable in the learning process and quite rare. His immense talent, his mastery of the instrument, and his unique approach to interpreting the composer's ideas focusing on the inner structure of the piece and its content really take the piano lessons to a new level and make the music come alive. I can not imagine a better teacher!+ Read More
Vyacheslav, or Slava for those who are fortunate and privileged enough to be his acquaintance, is perhaps one of the most compassionate, ingenious, and masterful musician who has an immense gift of music with a rich and thorough tradition as his educational upbringing. Anyone who takes a lesson with him should consider oneself lucky. His mastery of technical ability and teaching skills, as well as his ability to invoke the entire orchestra out of the piano, is second to none.+ Read More
Absolutely unique teacher. Very inspiring and mind changing. Opened a new world for me and many others. Highly recommended.
The best teacher I have ever had.
Vyacheslav gave an amazing piano recital and master class at Stetson University, where I am the head of the piano department. He is an insightful teacher, unbelievable musician, and humble and kind person. Anyone who studies with him is receiving a rare and valuable opportunity.+ Read More
I'm lucky to have him as my piano teacher and mentor for 3+ years.
His teaching style is so unique and inspiring, he guides me to discover my own style of playing rather than telling me what to do. I always enjoy our discussion during class about how to interpret music as my own and how to express myself through it. It's truly an honor to learn from someone of such high caliber in both piano playing and composing.
