Overview:
I'm a concert pianist, recording artist and a dedicated teacher with an extensive teaching experience for almost a decade. I've been professionally trained in Russia and New York and received a Master's degree in Piano Performance. I'm a recipient of many international music awards and I've given solo recitals and concerto performances throughout Europe and the U.S. I also collaborated with the renowned musicians and appeared in most esteemed concert halls in subsequent concert series. I offer piano lessons for children and adults. My lessons include music theory, technique development, music reading and performance coaching.
EXPERIENCE
I've been teaching music lessons since 2009 and I've had excellent results with my students. I specialize in working with students 5 years old and up of all skill levels. I've helped hundreds of students to pursue their musical interests. I've been working with students one-on-one in various music schools as well as at students' homes or at my studio. I found it equally gratifying to work with advanced or beginner pianists. I have students who want to play just for fun and students who wish excel with the Royal exams and prepare for the recitals or auditions. My students frequently participate at competitions and festivals at major NYC venues. I also organize Student's Piano Recitals twice a year.
METHODS USED
My typical process for working with a student includes teaching music fundamentals: Hand Position, Scales (various types), proper basic technique (playing with correct posture, wrist motions, arm relaxation). From the first lesson I develop skills in music theory and train in playing with a steady beat and an accurate rhythm. I teach the absolute beginners, not just how to play the piano, but teach them how to read notes, rhythmic notation, chords, sound technique and understand music for yourself. For the youngest students I usually stick with Piano Book series by Bastien/Alfred/Faber/Hal Leonard and choose supplemental recital songs that suit to student level and abilities. Over the course of studies students will play a few contrasting pieces in different musical styles, I also encourage students to select any songs that they prefer to play.
LESSON STYLE
A positive attitude and interactive approach are the foundations of my lessons. I believe that allowing students to show their creativity is a key to having a successful music experience. I've developed a teaching style that provides each student a solid musical foundation while encouraging individuality. I tend to clearly explain and demonstrate (play) to a student rather than get them play right away. I create an inspiring atmosphere and an entertaining environment. I'm always trying to bring to my students satisfaction and enjoyment of learning music.

My 8 yr old son has developed a passion for learning how to play the piano, read & even create music after taking classes with Ms. Raisa. She is assertive as well as upbeat providing a positive and nurturing environment. Her distinct technique keeps my son focused while enjoying every class. I highly recommend this Raisa!

I am a mother of a 13 y.o. piano student of Ms. Raisa. I’ve known Raisa for the past three years and I had a pleasure of watching my daughter grow as a student,a young musician and a person. Ms.Raisa is a very hardworking, inspiring and professional teacher possessing a natural talent for music!

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.
