METHODS USED
Beginner students will learn how to read music, how to properly hold drum sticks, learn basic strokes, drumming techniques, beginning rudiments. Intermediate and advanced students will learn how to improve their playing technique and virtuosity. They will also learn how to approach a specific piece of music; how to become expressive and creative with their skills.Every person learns differently and requires a teaching style tailored to their individual needs, and I am experienced in adapting to help accommodate that.I look forward to helping my new students achieve their goals.
LESSON STYLE
I'm all about stress-free but organized music practice that is enjoyble and brings a feeling that music is easy.  I really enjoy teaching drums and sharing my personal experiences. My goals are to have my students achieve personal success playing drums, along with succeeding at playing with other musicians, acquiring the disciplines for recording, and also most importantly, experiencing the joy from playing drums with confidence and passion! I will encourage practicing your instrument and enjoying this as much as possible.

Yulia is amazing! I've taken marimba and music theory lessons with her. She is very patient and truly one of the most engaging teachers I've ever studied with!

Yulia is an enthusiastic educator of the highest caliber! I have been teaching and performing with Yulia since 2017 and continue to be impressed with her practical, friendly, and inspiring approach to performance, music, pedagogy, and percussion. Yulia is an invaluable colleague and friend to many at the local, state, national, and international level. I count myself lucky to have a strong and varied professional relationship with her. Yulia has a great sense of humor, professional integrity, and is a lot of fun to be around. I've never seen a student leave her class without a giant smile on their face.

I have had the pleasure of working as a colleague with Yulia for several years and seen her teaching. She is excellent working with all ages, personalities, and experience levels of students. She goes the extra mile to make sure every student feels successful and learns something new in every lesson. She has high musical standards, and her percussion students put on fantastic musical performances. I would highly recommend Yulia as a percussion instructor!!

I would highly recommend Yulia as a music educator and as a professional musician. I have known Yulia’s work for many years and have always been deeply impressed. I am confident in saying that she is one of the most conscientious and creative artists on the educational and professional scene today. She has excellent rapport with her students and is a patient and thorough teacher. Her background speaks for itself and her reputation as a performer is spotless. I cannot say enough great things about Yulia and once again, enthusiastically recommend her as your next percussion teacher!
