For the past 20 years, I've studied and performed with keyboards, guitars and woodwind instruments while exploring a very wide variety of music ranging from classical and rock to jazz and avant-garde. Expanding and sharing that knowledge with other people in a helpful and friendly manner is something that I consummately enjoy- especially if they're beginning where I once was. My education includes a Bachelor of Music in Music Composition from DePaul University, and I've been working on my Music Education Certificate at UMSL since August 2014. Teaching private music lessons to students has allowed me to develop my interpersonal and arbitrational skills through calmly and effectively solving student issues as they've come up.

I am Russian classical educated musician. My personal world have been enriched since I started to study clasical music and learn to play piano at nine year old. Bringing the names of great composers, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Tchaykovsky, Rachmaninoff, ect. to the children at the Elementary and Middle schools was the beginning of my professional journey. Touching the white and black keys of the piano with my children was the another part of the story.

I typically divide my lessons into quarters so that the first part is just scale work. The second part is scale patterns and technique. The third portion is prepared materials, and the final portion is listening. I bring an Ipod with close to 750,000 songs on it for kids to choose pieces featuring their own instruments for inspirational purposes. I find that listening can be just as informative as pressing down keys:)

My teaching approach focuses primarily on tone production - I think this is the most important fundament to teach young students. I like to use the Hal Leonard Essential Elements or equivalent beginner book (Hovey, Rubank for clarinet) to start the student off, but as they become more advanced, it's important to introduce repertoire to them. I allow the student some individuality here - what kind of music would they like to play? Young students love playing the pop tunes, so I whole-heartedly accept them finding a book of broadway or pop tunes and brining it to lessons. For the older students, I always go to the Rose 32 Etudes for Clarinet, focusing primarily on the slower etudes to continue developing tone. Scales are also a must for all ages - I stress the importance of tone with these exercises because it's not just about the fingers.

I tend to shy away from traditional methods as they can be confusing and frustrating and can get in the way of the reasons an individual picked up the instrument in the first place. Everybody has a dream and a goal when they first pick up an instrument and that dream is always going to be in the center of what we do. With that being said sometimes a method book a perfect way to learn the basics of an instrument so it depends ultimately on what works for the student.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
