Hi, My name is George I am a professional viola player and teacher. I graduated with an MA from Sankt-Petersburg Conservatory and BM from Sankt-Petersburg College. In both I had studied viola, piano, music theory, harmony and polyphony (basically), had a large experience of teaching children and adults. I'm able to work with any level of students being very flexible and making study process exciting, useful and funny. During lessons I usually show by my self how to play in order to inspire my students and help them to reach their goals and aims. My professional achievement as a teacher is that all my students begin to fall in love with music very quickly and practice with pleasure, even those who were frustrated or pained by their previous experiences with other teachers and have stopped practice having lost all hope. Music can be fun and gorgeous for any level of education, even if you don't need to become professional musician and are involved in music for yourself.
I started to teach in 2003 at the third year at College. Since that time I am teaching non stop.
My method is based on a flexibility and an individual approach to every student. For beginning students I play myself a lot to involve them into fairy world of music. We have a nice musical time full of inspiration and cognitive adventures. Adult students I take them through the music they struggle to play with characteristic, emotional and technical features.
My students are all my best friends!
