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.

Notable Recitals

Tchaikovsky National Academy of Music Kiev, Ukraine
(Winter and Spring recitals throughout 2005 to 2010)
Performed works by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, and Gershwin

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.

I am pretty easy going. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus and can have fun doing it. :)
I utilize various methods for each instrument, which is determined by the students learning style and ability; needs, so this can change as time goes on (not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (and continue to do) extensive research into materials available for each instrument I teach, and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance and tools. You practice, utilize learn these tools, and off we go! The sky is the limit!

Drumming isn't just about playing the right beats, and having the right chops.

On stage, the difference between a good drummer and a boring drummer is how you play each note, Do you know how to make your drums sound sad?

Emotional responses to the drums is what sad chords are to the guitar. If you want more advanced lessons, this is the place to start.

About Jeremiah
As a Musicians Institute graduate, I've learned from exceptional drummers in the Los Angeles music industry. I gained and learned many tricks of the trade and can offer the same quality education to anyone. As a student myself, I realized that having great sound, solid timing and groove are just as essential as having cool beats to play. There are more technicalities to drumming than being able to play fast or having the best chops.
Aside from learning how to play drums, knowing how to think about music, how to listen to music, and how to study music will give a great foundation to any student of any style.

I first like to determine the students ability and understanding by working on a few coordination exercises and reading exercises.
From a good foundation, I build a curriculum, and deter any obstacles by constantly changing my
approach to further and benefit the student playing.

This is quite a broad subject - music performance - but considering I have been performing since I was a little kid, I find myself appropriate to teach it. I specialize in piano performance and conducting, but work with singers often, and would be happy to work with instrumantelists to hone their craft.

About Geoffrey
Hello prospective students, I am a concert pianist, and have been performing since I was 13, both Internationally and across the United States. Besides my solo career, I am an avid collaborative pianist and repetiteur, conductor and composer. I have performed piano trios with the Mainly Mozart Festival in Miami, Cello Sonatas with the Chopin Foundation, and have worked as a pianist for Minnesota Opera, and currently as one for Houston Grand Opera. I hold a Bachelor's in solo piano performance and a Master's in collaborative piano performance fro the University of Miami.

If you study with me, you will find a passionate pedagogue who is both here to encourage and instruct, always willing to positively push you forward while expanding your horizons. Please feel free to message me should you have any further questions!

From the growth of my masters degree, I have achieved new insights on sound and the presentation in full regards of approaching what we recognize as the "stage of performance." Practice is how we achieve consistent growth in our skills as musicians, however bringing those achieve skills to the stage is a different application on its own, entirely.

My professional skills cover a wide range of instrumental fundamentals, practice applications, and other various musical techniques concerning all things clarinet instruction.

About Scott
I have recently graduated from Texas State University with a Masters degree in Music Performance – Clarinet in the Spring of 2017.

My professional skills cover a wide range of instrumental fundamentals, practice applications, and other various musical techniques concerning all things clarinet instruction. Will travel 50 miles out for a lesson because no student should have to suffer with the urning to learn and better themselves.
