I am a graduate of Yerevan Conservatory. I earned a Bachelors and a Masters in Music. I am an exceptionally experienced pianist with a background that includes: international competition, performances with European symphony orchestras and teaching music in Russia, Norway and USA. I am a member of MTAC: Music Teacher's Association of California. I can both prepare students for merit certificate and competition and for just a simple enjoyment of piano playing. I am fluent in Russian and Armenian.
I have been teaching music for the last 17 years. I teach ages from 10 to adult. My music teaching incorporates Russian classical methods and the best traditions of Russian piano performance school. I also incorporate pop, rock and jazz into students' curriculum. It is important for me to know that my student is enjoying the lesson. I encourage my student to enter competitions and recitals so they can feel good about their achievements. I also remind my student that practice will improve their technique.
I develop an individual curriculum based on student's needs, ability and level of advancement. Since I do teach adults, I also schedule lessons to fit their life style. Depending of what the student wants, I do develop an individualized lessons. I do believe that beginners do need an introduction to basic music knowledge and methods. For children, I start with basics. For adults, I first try to determine their level of ability and interest and then customize music lessons based on my determination and student's wishes.
With any new student, I first get to know what the student likes and what they would like to accomplish with their music lessons. I am caring and supportive teacher. My style of teaching is based on two principles: guidance and encouragement. I strive to set realistic goals for each of my students, My experience shows that students do best when they are encouraged and nurtured. I also try to pass my love of music to my students. I always remind them that one can enjoy music not only through actual playing, but just simply listening to it.
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.Ok
