About Eugene
Greetings and Salutations! I want to let you know, whether you're a music student or a fellow lover of music, that you have great untapped potential for music! More so than most people would tell you, because music is a powerful, life giving, uplifting gift that comes to all those that love and enjoy it.

If you have a desire to pursue music in any shape or fashion. I congratulate you! You open to yourself a brand new world filled with fun, excitement and great opportunities.

My Philosophy:

There is great music potential waiting to be untapped in yourself. I value greatly the time I spend with every student and wish them to become the very best at the instrument they wish to pursue.

There is indescribable expression to be found in music. A wide range of emotions can be conveyed along with untold stories just waiting to
be opened up. I will help foster a student's ability to see music for what it really is and help them strive for whatever musician they wish to become, whether it be for personal fulfillment, just for fun and recreation, or even in the pursuit of becoming an effective classical musician.

My Education:

My mother took me took a classical concert when I was six and I sat in the front of the stringed section. After the concert I made my decision that would shape the rest of my life, I wanted to become like those musicians.

I eventually graduated from a local music school in the following years in piano and violin and immediately went to enter the Tchaikovsky Conservatory. I was among the 10 out of 40 applicants that were eventually chosen, along with being the youngest of them as well.

After four years of study, I graduated and received my Bachelor's Degree in Music. I then went on to study for another year and received my Master's Degree in Piano.

My Other Experience:

I was Church Music Director in Kiev for Living Water Church from 2002 - 2010. I directed the adult choir, directed and led church worship services, accompanied various musicians and managed all aspects of church music responsibilities, including budgeting, rehearsals, planning and library management.

I also have been a private music teacher for several years teaching adults and young students. I planned lessons with them and established their repertoire.

I am also fluent in the Russian language and have extensive computer literacy.

(Winter and Spring recitals throughout 2005 to 2010)

Blessings

*** Lesson Details ***
I pay close attention to the fundamentals of music especially throughout the early lessons. These include reading notes, measuring tempo and rhythm, sight reading, hand positioning, posture, and technique.

I believe in positive reinforcement for all my students. Building a kind and friendly atmosphere is paramount for encouraging students, especially children, to continue pursuing music. Everyone I believe has hidden music potential, and I believe the key to unlocking this is through inspiration. Music is a grand adventure of excitement and discovery for everyone.

I am very kind and honest with my students and am never too strict with them, but I do require and greatly encourage regularly that they make habitual practice a vital part of their musical education. As the old saying goes, "Practice makes Perfect." There is great truth to that saying especially when learning a musical instrument.

Excellent Teacher

I am an older student and I started to learn to play the piano more than a year ago under a different teacher. I started with Eugene about 4 months ago. I was struggling with the piano previously. But after just 2 lessons with Eugene, I found myself playing confidently. Eugene explains so clearly and everything makes sense to me now. I enjoy practicing everyday now. He is excellent teacher, patient, and very professional. He is always on time.

About Paul David
I have two degrees, as well as a teaching certificate in music education.

Music Education is incredibly important, and the field
I hold dearly to my heart. Music is my passion in life,
and it is why I wake up in the morning. Music can enrich
someone’s life, whether it is simply listening to a piece
of music, or studying an instrument for one’s lifetime.
Studies have shown that music education can and has
increased intellectual skills, especially in mathematics and
reading. When learners are motivated and very studious
in music education, many of these students become
doctors, engineers, teachers, and other highly-intellectual
professions.
In conclusion, an education and especially a music
education is so important for the emotional and intellectual
development of a human being.
Music is an excellent medium for collaborat
ion in which
students can grow and excel as individuals. Choir, band,
orchestra, and various chamber groups can spark a child’s
interest, as well as interact with other peers in a positive
environment.
A student can feel a great sense of accomplishment and
learning through the study of music. After weeks, if not
months of rehearsal and practice, the student will then
have the privilege of performing in public. The teacher’s
role in this factor is so crucial in that the teacher needs
to be very experienced in the field, and also has to have a
passion for what he or she does.
Studies have shown that the study of music greatly
enhances brain power. Test scores are greatly increased,
especially in the areas of math and reading. Studies have
also shown that students who study music are motivated
to achieve in life. Many music students go on to become
professionals such as doctors, lawyers, and teachers.
Some music students even become leaders of nations,
such as our past president Bill Clinton.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether the lesson is 30 min. up to an hour, the format is the same: The student first reviews the piece(s) of music and materials from the lesson last week. I'm always emphasizing retention and recall. Next we start on new information and new piece(s) of music. For the remainder of the lesson we do theory and written work, then conclude with older pieces (usually the student's choice).

*** Studio Equipment ***
lessons in dinning area with acoustic piano, waiting area for parents in living room

*** Specialties ***
I like to teach out of many method books, such as Faber and Alfred's. All materials are welcome however.

About Jennifer
I have been teaching piano to students of all ages since 1992, both to individual students and groups. I taught with the Music Learning Center of Michigan. I have been a music teacher and choir director for a number of years as well. For eight years I have played the organ and piano for Church worship.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music should be appreciated and enjoyed. Lessons should be fun without sacrificing quality. This is the approach I offer to students. I focus on teaching independence through music theory and sight reading. Performance is an important part of learning so I provide two recitals every year- one for Christmas and another in the spring, at the end of the school year.
My schedule only allows for weekly lessons. Requests for every other week cannot be accepted.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate room dedicated to teac
hing with upright piano.

"Quality begins with the teacher". A native of Jacksonville, Fl. I began my classical piano studies at the age of 5, under Mrs. Joy Warren who was a student of the renowned Dr. Leo Podolski. I remained with her for twelve years. A graduate of Stetson University School of Music, with a major in Piano and Voice. I studied piano performance under Dr. Roger Cushman, Senior Professor of Piano at Stetson University, who received his Masters and Doctorate at Yale and Oxford University. I studied Vocal Performance under Mollie Rich, Professor of Voice, and after rece
iving my Piano and Voice degree at Stetson University I chose to do further vocal study under Jane Rolandi, opera singer, and Professor of Voice at Converse College in South Carolina.

I am currently a member of the Texas Music Teachers Association (TMTA), Cypress Creek Music Teachers Association (CCMTA local chapter), The National Federation of Music Clubs (NFMC), Conroe Junior Music Club (CJMC) and The American College of Musicians. My studio is open to students of all ages and abilities, from beginners to advanced students preparing for competitions and all the way through to their college auditions.

I look forward to hearing from you and would like to set up a free consultation before lessons begin, because as a teacher I desire to maximize each students potential and offer you the opportunity to meet me and visit my studio within my home. I am so interested in getting to know you and your child and preparing lessons that meet your child's individual needs.
