Hello! My name is Natasha and I am pretty well known in the Baltimore area having taught hundreds of young musicians over the last 20 years. I love to play music and teach it. Some of my favorite activities are playing in an orchestra or a quartet, fiddling for dances or jamming with friends, playing piano, practicing, touring and performing. I grew up in Moscow, Russia and have been playing violin since the age of 5 and piano since the age of 4. I studied violin, viola, cello and piano Performance and Pedagogy in college. I graduated from Towson University with degrees in Music Performance and Education, and then studied Music Education at Peabody Conservatory. I completed Suzuki teacher-training on violin, cello and piano with SAA. I hold an Advanced Professional Certification in Music from MSDE. Currently I teach orchestra and general music in Baltimore area Public Schools.
Hello, and welcome to my studio! I love to make music with my students! I teach technique, theory and performance by using music that appeals to them. I always look for new ways to teach. My goal is to create a comfortable yet challenging learning environment in which every student is successful. My teaching style is enthusiastic and caring. I believe that the best way to encourage students to practice is to teach music that they want to play, to have them perform, to challenge them with beautiful music and to use technology to support practicing. I know that some students and families are motivated by participation in competitions, auditions, exams, and recitals. I make sure to provide such opportunities and to prepare students for all such events if they are interested. The important part is to keep FUN in the FUNdamentals of music learning!
For beginnig students who are children I typically start with a lesson book. As soon as they are comfortable on their instruments, I introduce the pieces for their first performance. For older students I follow their interests to have them play the songs that they enjoy. I also specialize in working with young children and on Suzuki Method teaching for piano, violin, viola and cello.

"Natasha is really a superb teacher. She has wonderful rapport with my children and is very patient. My daughter and son have progressed tremendously in a short period, and more importantly enjoy their lessons. Thank you Natasha". Stephen L. July 03, 2011
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.
