My name is Mark. Originally from Minks Belarus I have lived in three countries before coming to the United States. I maintain an active performing career, full of solo performances and chamber music performances in Europe and the United States. I am currently affiliated with a Juilliard school, as well as a teacher at the harmony program. I have two CD’s being released this year, one in the United States, and the seocond one in Turkey. I am looking forward to build a larger studio in Manhattan.
I maintain a private music studio in Manhattan for two years now. Prior to that, I have been an assistant of the cello professor in Minnesota, as well as had a private studio. Also, I have been a guest artist-professor at a number of European festivals, and the guest chamber music coach at the Republican Music College of Belarus. I mainly focus on an overall musical experience of my students. Giving them a well-rounded education is my most important goal. I do it in order for them to build a skill of self-education that they will use in their entire life.
My teaching philosophy is based upon each case. I have to meet a person, talk with him or her and see what they have, in order to tell them what they need. It is important to realize that having a well-rounded music education, and understanding a principal of music making and music learning is much harder than to move the fingers across fingerboard or a keyboard. Therefore a lot of my lessons have to do with visUalization, imagery, musical analyzes, solfege, harmonica education, music history, and obviously the exploration of the techniques of the instrument. Once we have one and the other, we can proceed with learning how to combine them.
I generally try to give as much information to the student during a lesson. I believe that there should be a part of self-education involved in the process of music learning, and therefore only by combining the knowledge and practical advises of the teacher with a willingness and talent of the student we can achieve a great goal. My teaching style involes a lot of inspirational talks, showing examples, practical training in order for the student to fall in love with the instrument and the music in general. And than it is my responsibility to tell the student how to interact with the instrument.
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
