It is the 50th Anniversary of my active teaching piano in 2014.
After 8 years of hard studies at precollege Music School I was prepared to win the competitive entrance exam to one of the best
Music Schools in the World – Rimsky-Korsakov College of Music, and then the Rimsky-Korsakov State Conservatory in St. Petersburg, Russia.
I am very grateful for having a chance to receive such exclusive education.
Among hundreds of my students thru the years those succeeded who were open to learn and worked hard to prosper. As the result, great many of my students are winners of numerous awards of local and State Competitions and Scholarship Auditions.
These achievements made it possible for them to be accepted and pay for their University education in a variety of specialties including Piano as their profession.
My students are my babies. It was probably N.A. Dmitrieva, my Piano Teacher thru all 8 precollege years, from whom I inherited the dedication to students.
I am doing my best, most of the times even more than I can do.
As there is no single perfect methodology of teaching, I am always finding what is best for a particular student.
Every year my Studio has at least two performances:
At the Holiday Concert in December all my students play solo program; At the End of the School year Concert in May students play ensembles: some play Concertos with the String Orchestra, others play duets.
My students play a variety of music styles from Baroque to Contemporary, including Jazz
I am very proud of my students’ achievements.
