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.

*** 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.

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.

Hello, Parents & Students!
My name is Elyse, and I teach a wide array of great (mainly musical) things!
Thank you for checking out my page! I very much appreciate your time. :)
A few key points to know about me:
*I graduated from Kent State University (Kent, OH) in December, 2009, with my Bachelor of Music in Music Education degree (Magna cum Laude).
*I’ve taught music in small ensembles and in Marching Band camps since July, 2007.
*I taught from 2010-2016 in the Texas Public Schools as a General Music teacher/Choir Director.
*I taught Theatre for one year.
*I am a VERY enthusiastic, fun-loving teacher who enjoys laughter and bringing smiles to my students as we learn.
*I thrive on finding new, fun ways to teach concepts.
*We spend time not only on s
*Because I am teaching one-on-one, I structure lessons to fit the individual needs of my students.
*The Clarinet was my instrument of study in college.
I love to read, sing, play instruments, and listen to music. I love cats, chocolate, and my family/friends. Pink is my favorite color, and Hanson is my favorite band!
*My most recent new student, after his second lesson, asked if he could take piano more than once a week because “it’s so fun!” 😊
—If you're going to make a mistake, make a loud one!
--My students know (I make sure of this) right off the bat that it's okay to make mistakes!
**My philosophy is: YOU make mistakes. Mistakes don't make YOU. We fix them together, and we learn together. Also: never apologize for making a mistake; that is why we’re working together and you’re practicing at home! :)
-I'm definitely a fun-loving, outgoing person.
-I do not yell at students; I favor positive reinforcement.
-I try to think “outside-the-box” as much as possible and utilize creativity.
-I talk as little as possible in lessons; my goal is for the student to play/sing as much as possible. With beginners, I may have to talk a bit more to start.
-I often model for the student what they should do: example: Middle C position on the piano.
-If seeing ME isn’t enough for my visual learners, I will utilize a video clip.
-For some learners, sometimes I have to move their fingers into position myself.
-I use many other techniques as well.
*** Lesson Details ***
-I am a pretty relaxed teacher. :)
-Although I am relaxed, I AM very adamant about practicing between lessons, no matter what type of instrument (or voice) you/your child may be learning. It is the only way to improve. :) (I DO understand illnesses/emergencies.)
-We will ALWAYS begin with a warm-up, we may/may not move into rhythm exercises, possible ear training, music theory, and the music.
-The list of all that I teach is on my page, but I teach all wind instruments (woodwind/brass), piano, and voice. I also teach acting techniques and improvisation skills.
-I can be VERY flexible where scheduling is concerned. Just because it isn’t listed on my availability doesn’t mean we can’t work on it. The INITIAL lesson must be at that time, though. :)
-Daily practice is strongly recommended. It is important and necessary for steady progress.
-For piano lessons, students should have neat, clean, trimmed nails at every lesson.
-Students should bring water to voice lessons.
-Reed players should ensure they have working/non-cracked reeds.
-Students must be prepared for each lesson.
-Always have a pencil (not a pen).
-Parents should remain until their child’s lesson is complete. —No drop-offs!
-Parents should regularly check and support the student’s home practice routine.
*** Studio Equipment ***
-One Yamaha keyboard w/pedal; space for parents to sit and observe lessons.
-Square chairs to sit on
IMPORTANT NOTE: My home, where my studio is located, is inhabited by four very sweet cats. Keep this in mind when you plan to sign up for lessons. :)
I VERY much look forward to hearing from you!!

In order to play a piece of music, the student must have a stability and clarity of mind. This can be cultivated through short sessions (5-10 minutes) where the student focuses on their breath, and listens outwards to external sound.
Based on age and maturity level, these meditations will vary– however the overall goal is a clear palate from which the music may be studied.
The two basic components of a musical instrument include pitch and rhythm.
Rhythm is logical and can be learned through basic exercises and fun games and apps. However, internalizing a rhythmic pulse in the body requires physical exercises such as dance or eurythmics. Because of this, I encouraged my students to enroll in dance classes!
Pitch vibration in relation to a scale can often be difficult for beginners. I use a pro
Developing Motor Skills
String instruments can be thought of as a sport of the fine muscles. However, the larger muscle groups must also be maintained! I encourage my students to take part in some type of after school sport. In addition, I will go through basic stretches during each lesson that prevent injury and improve circulation.
With application to the instrument, there are two main categories of physical-technical exercises, Bow Arm and Left Hand exercises.
Bow Arm Exercises are meant to improve overall sound quality and increase flexibility. There are hundreds of these exercises, with just as many variations. I assign my students just a few each week with a specific goal in mind.
Left Hand Exercises are designed to improve dexterity, accuracy, and speed, while also correcting the hand’s shape, overall efficiency, and intonation. Again, my student receive new exercises each week in order to train the fine muscles and keep their practice fresh.
Learning a Piece of Music
I have several notions and techniques to help students learning a piece of music I break them down into a process that can be understood and carried forward by the student. They are picking a piece, creating learnable chunks, learning notes and rhythms (dynamics and articulation), understanding the form and message and performing.
