Instruments:

As a child, I loved to sing. Although I could not understand the words, I relied on the sounds and melodies of songs—songs that were Russian, Armenian, and even English. I believe my concentration on the music and not the words lead me into my passion for the piano, which I started playing at the age of eight. Performing the Bach Preludes for my first concert, I was attached to the energy and spirit of the piano. As my skills developed, my desire to become a solo pianist grew. I am passionate about music, and I work to perfect my technique, striving to bring out the composer’s intentions in whatever piece I perform. Fundamentally, my interpretations stem from my life’s experiences: from the difficulties of becoming a classical musician to leaving my family in Armenia for Germany in order to pursue my passion for piano. I have been brought up in the Russian/Soviet traditions of piano performance. I studied in Armenia and entered competitions in order to pursue a career as a concert pianist. However, my endeavors have led me towards experiences not merely as a soloist but also as a chamber musician. In Armenia I studied with Rosa Tandilyan who was responsible for my early training and for giving me a solid music education as an aspiring young pianist. Her relentless dedication to pedagogy provided me with top rate instruction, and gave me the foundation on which all my professional success was obtained. After winning the LB Bank Scholarship for Young Musicians (Germany), I moved to Karlsruhe, Germany, to study with Professor Olga Rissin at the Karlsruhe Hochschule für Musik. In Germany, I have performed numerous concerts as a soloist, receiving an invitation to record Bach’s Busoni Chaconne for the SWR Radio Station in Southern Germany. In 2010  I came to US and completed Artist Diploma at Hamline International Piano Institute with professor Alexander Braginsky.

Instruments:

I'm a laid-back but passionate music instructor who really enjoys teaching students of all ages and all ability levels. I have been teaching regularly for 5 years and have learned immensely from the experiences myself, which I use to better teach students now. I have earned degrees from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the University of Illinois, and have performed as a soloist and collaborative pianist throughout the Midwest and East Coast. To further sharpen my skills as a teacher, I earned an additional master's degree in piano pedagogy from the University of Illinois. I strive to remain as active as possible as a performer and teacher.

Instruments:

I encourage my students to include the music in their everyday schedule. They also receive assignments to compose musical questions and answers, transpose melodies, as well as listen to recordings. I use duets and play by myseelf to inspire their imagination. I also recommend attendence local music performances to help develop student's ears and form their music tastes.

Instruments:

I find each student deserves a unique lesson plan but should learn all styles of music along their path to discovering their very own unique style of play. Over the years I have watched many instructional videos on how to play guitar, bass etc and I find it very helpful for a student to go out into the world and discover music they enjoy and focus on learning that style/genre. I strongly believe in using Music Theory in my teachings but in a way that is easy to understand for beginners or advanced musicians.

...solid idea of what you’d like to achieve in your guitar lessons for adults before you search for a teacher. Certain instructors bring special skill sets to their lessons, so if you want to learn to read music, write songs, or be able to improvise over some jazz chords, make sure you ask potential instructors if they have any experience in those areas.

...music to facilitate music literacy, but also to promote lifelong musicianship. I accept and am glad that not all who enter into my classroom will grow up to be a professional musician. That would be an incredibly disillusioned view of music education and education on the whole. We do not take math to become mathematicians, nor do we study biology to become doctors. Rather, we study many different subjects to become well-rounded individuals who know and understand the world around us. I teach music so that my students can become well-rounded, individuals who know and understand the musical world around them. In closing, ... Read More

If you need something smaller, the “console uprights” will be less than 43” tall.   The “Spinet” is next in line for upright types of pianos, but you won’t see many of them: they aren’t made anymore. In all honesty, it’s just not a good option for anybody, unless you’re looking for a nice piece of furniture. The one benefit of this type of piano is its ... Read More

Setup of the Five Piece Drum Set

... When starting out, most drummers (and parents) don’t know what is included in the setup of the five piece drum set. The most common configuration for a drum kit used in rock and pop music is the five-piece drum set, the number five referring to the number of drums in the kit (snare drum, bass drum, two high toms, and a floor tom). Along with the five drums, there are usually two cymbals and a hi-hat stand. There are many different set-ups for drum kits, but the standard is the five-piece. In addition to the five piece drum kit, most drummers require other drum and percussion accessories. The drum that is most used is the snare drum. It is the most prominent and ... Read More

...loudest of the drums. This is because metal wires (called snares) are stretched across the bottom drum-head, rattling when the top drum-head is struck. A snare drum used in a drum kit usually measures 13 or 14 inches in diameter. Besides striking the drum-head, many players will click the rim with their sticks. This is called a rim-shot. Snare drums are also widely used in marching bands. The second most used drum is the bass drum, or kick drum. The bass drum sits on the floor and is struck with a foot-operated pedal. Its primary function is to keep time; unlike the other drums, it does not have a set pitch. Bass drums vary in size, but the general measurement is 20 inches in ... Read More
