Bachelor in Music Performance.
I was trained in the Soviet Union. The Soviet piano teaching continued the great traditions of the Russian piano school. Yes, the piano study was very challenging and demanding At the same time, all this hard work was incredibly exciting. Ever since I was first starting piano lessons I knew I was to share my gift. As I started college my desire was not just to play but to also share my gift and teach as well. My passion is to pass on the ability to express ones self through music whether it be flute or piano. It gives me great joy to see my students excel and see their confidence increase as they progress in their playing ability. My teaching approach is to emphasize a strict adherence to improving technical skills through practice as well as customizing choice of music to suit their desires and goal.
I have been teaching piano on and off since 1982. I worked with children between the age 6 and 18 years but enjoy teaching students of all ages. My students are also encouraged to have recitals twice a year. I organize activities such as concert, performance, and exams. I use my pedagogical skills to achieve the best education for students in my classes.Each lesson is customized to meet the individual needs and goals. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it's importat that each student progresses at his/her own pace. I encorage them by setting realistic goals and by reinforcing the improtance of individual study practice. By trying out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs.
I thoroughly enjoy customizing each student's lesson according to their learning ability and make sure they excel and have fun. I utilize most of the time the Alfred Piano method both for school age and adults. When I feel the student is ready I supplement quite a lot with the Hanon exercises,Czerny and the Master Theory workbook(this works very well with the student who also desires to learn to play by ear as well.) For repertoire I emphasize classical pieces and also help the student with pop and holiday pieces;i.e- Schumann's Album for the Young, Beginning Bach minuets,Bach and Clementi sonatinas,etc.

By trying out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs. I mainly use Alfred and Hal Leonard books for teaching. While Alfred's method also teaches position playing, it also dives into intervallic reading. Many true, albeit arranged, baroque, romantic, and classical piano pieces are featured without a lot of fluff and fanfare. This may be an ideal method for most of students. The Alfred method is featured in a variety of books, including an all-in-one piano course for children, a prep course, and a basic piano library, completely correlated and presented in progressive levels.
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
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
