Hello! My name is Natasha and I am prettywell known in the Baltimore area having taught hundreds of young musicians over the last 20 years.I love to play music and teach it. Some of my favorite activities are playing in an orchestra or a quartet, fiddling for dances or jamming with friends, playing piano, practicing, touring and performing. I grew up in Moscow, Russia and have been playing violin since the age of 5 and piano since the age of 4. Read More
Instruments: Drums Mallet Percussion Orchestral Percussion Djembe
For all students, I start off with the basic fundamentals. Proper setup, posture, stick position, and technique. I then will hand write some examples and assess the student. From there I usually will use Alfred's Beginning Drum Set Method. Once the student has a grasp on that, I will focus on rudimental drumming and snare rhythms to accompany the drum fill portion of the Alfred's book. From there we move into more advanced books that include jazz drumming and complex rock beats as well as learning popular songs of the student's choice. Read More

I think its important to note that I have over 15 years of experience as a student of music and through this formal education, I have observed teachers, analyzed techniques, identified best practices, and formulated a point of view about music education that I have assimilated into my instruction. My experience has taught me that successful music education prioritizes fun, encouragement, inspiration, and connecting with the students. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor degree in Music Education from Temple Universitys Boyer School of Music. Read More
Instruments: Piano Voice
My teaching experience began right after college when I started my voice and piano studio in Ohio. I maintained a private voice and piano studio for several years until moving to the East Coast. My students participated in several recitals throughout the year and competed in area music competitions. For several years, I taught music in the public schools and at the university level. I am also an active performer and music director in many area theaters. Read More
I am a creative and focused violin instructor specializing in classical to contemporary orchestral music. I graduated from Drexel University in 2019 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. I have been playing the violin for almost 20 years, starting from my Kindergarten music lessons all the way to sitting as Concert Master for the Drexel University Symphony Orchestra. Between that, I've had the privilege of performing with the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra, the Gemini Youth Orchestra, New York All-County Orchestra, New York All-State Orchestra and New York Summer School of the Arts.

My teaching experience comes from teaching the previous two years at Stone House Jam Academy in Bel Air, MD. During my time there, I taught guitar, piano, ukulele, drums, bass, and music theory/ear training. I taught everyone from the ages of 6 to 60. I am currently enrolled and taking classes at Goucher College to attain my master of arts degree in teaching so that I can become the best teacher that I can possibly be. Read More
Instruments: Piano Saxophone Clarinet Keyboard
Through out the years of both learning, playing and up to present doing more teaching and classes i've realized the need to practice ones instrument. I also figured that practice just after a class means a lot as you tend to remember a lot that you talked about in a class session! We are all different when it comes to learning and material intake, so as a teacher loving and being patient with my students has always proven to bring out the best from students on their instruments.

When did you decide to become a professional musician? Was it a gradual decision or was there a defining moment for you?
It was a gradual decision I wish I would have made sooner. Being a musician isn't just a career, but a full on life style. The sooner you commit to this life style the more fully you can experience it. Becoming a performance level musician takes time and commitment unlike anything else. I was never encouraged to be a musician because my family was not musical and did not understand the prospect of playing or teaching music as a profession outside of recording hit singles and touring stadiums. It took me well into adulthood to realize that there are other and more realistic ways to make a living through music such as teaching, performing in a small touring band, or a successful local band, and possibly working as a session musician in a studio, jazz, classical, or wedding ensemble.
What is your dream piece to perform and why?
I've been saying for years now I want to do a cover of Pink Floyd's "Shine on you Crazy Diamonds". Pink Floyd have always been a major influence on my playing and thinking since my father first introduced them to me as his favorite band when I was a child. Since then this has probably become my favorite piece of theirs. It's a multi-movement psychedelic rock symphony starting from the depths of the void and taking listeners on an other worldly sonic journey through time and space guided by the piercing vocality of David Gilmore's guitar tone. The piece is incredibly cinematic in a sense and truly the peak of what I believe modern music is cable of.
What does a normal practice session look like for you?
I like to start by warming up, which really every player should. My routine includes scale exercises to practice fretting, intervals, finger dexterity, and reach as well as a variety of diatonic chord and strumming exercises to practice rhythm in different time signatures and styles including basic funk, reggae, and jazz patterns. Next I'll often move on to scale and solo work by practicing with TABs, recordings, and new scale charts. Finally I move on to song work and improv developing original material and solo ideas for my band or else practice on nights it is scheduled.
When will I start to see results?
It really depends on the student, their interest level, their age range, and most importantly their practice routine. Different people have different natural talents. That's not to say the most important skills on any instrument aren't learned through training and practice, but rather that some things like perfect pitch or a natural affinity for dictation, "good ears" so to say can't help anyone with a genuine interest develop quicker then their counter part. The most important thing I think in terms of developing results is the students interest level which will then directly effect their practice routine. A player who is truly passionate will develop the quickest because they'll put more time into the instrument. Some students only truly care to be casual players and will then develop at a casual rate based on their own comfort level. Students who arn't truly interested and don't want to learn will struggle to develop at all. Younger students may also develop slower then older students although full adults can often be hindered in development by their busy schedules.
