Instruments:

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.

I am a passionate lover of the technique and history of the voice and violin. I have worked extensively with both from a very young age. I will be graduating with honors from UNC Chapel Hill this upcoming spring and will be attending graduate school for my masters in music. I've worked as a teacher for five years. I have worked as a concertmistress of a 100 person orchestra, and I have played some of the longest roles in opera repertoire. I have a passion for these art forms and create a productive and nurturing atmosphere for my students that always yields extensive growth.

I, myself, have been in love with violin since the age of 5, therefore I understand the concept of teaching young children.I find fullfillment knowing that I can contribute to the list of talents my studends have! I am fluent in 2 languages: English and Korean and am experienced in teaching in both. I live in Gainesville, VA with my wife and 2 wonderful kids. I am able to travel within Virginia and possibly Washington, DC to accomodate my students needs as I understand the comfort and convenience of learning within their own homes.

I have been teaching private lessons for 10 years. Encouraging students to practice regularly and to have fun with their instrument is essential for the learning process. I stress the importance of these two things so that the student may develop a love for music and their instrument of choice. Also, being able to teach a variety of musical styles keeps students wanting to learn. I encourage students to not only learn written pieces, but to create their own music and individual sound. I also suggest just listening to music. This is the best for just wanting to learn and play popular as well as unpopular songs.

Instruments:

I have been teaching music lessons since 1989 as soon as I graduate high school. My deep love and understanding of music helps inspire and empower students to expand their musical voice. My teaching methods depend on the age and ability of the student. From younger students and beginners to older or more advanced students. For violin, I use my own tailored curriculum. I teaches basic scales, essential techniques to all levels, and various pieces of music depending on the studentxe2x80x99s needs. Her goal is to show students the joy and benefit of music in our everyday lives. For Piano, I use Alfred Piano Series , Sonatine, Hanon, etc.
