As a professional pianist and experienced music teacher, I blend the classical Russian method with the American musical culture. Mastering of the piano requires concentration and hard work, but I will strive to make the lessons interesting and enjoyable to your child, a process of discovery, personal growth and continuous improvement.
I was born in Moscow, Russia, and began studying music from the age of six. I graduated with honors from the prestigious Gnessins Academy of Music (Moscow) with Masters degree in piano performing and teaching. Over years I performed throughout Russia, as well as in Cyprus, Thailand, Malaysia, and Norway.
I compose my own music. After coming to the US in 1996 I recorded two CD's, “Teach Me How to Love” and “Sing Israel“, which were critically acclaimed. I perform regularly playing a wide repertoire, from classical music to opera and jazz.
I am a member of National Guild of Piano Teachers, and have over twenty years of experience in teaching students of all ages. Currently I teach at my home studio, located in Cliffside Park, NJ. I also give lessons at students homes, serving Hudson and Bergen Counties.
My Book: Learning to Play The Piano in Ten Lessons.
Only 10 lessons and you can play the piano. The book includes 3 tests, popular music pieces, coloring pictures, and work sheets, where the students can practice drawing notes, clefs and other musical signs. All you need to start mastering the art of playing piano.
