I've loved playing the piano from an early age. I took private lessons for 13 years and my last teacher was German Tchernoivanov, who was a professor at the Moscow Conservatory. When I was 16 I started teaching neighbor children and have enjoyed teaching children, especially the very beginners. My husband also plays the piano and we enjoy playing duets together. Throughout my life I've gotten a lot of satisfaction from sitting at the piano with students and teaching them how to play. At the end of the lesson, I like to include a 5 min musical game that's reviewing music concepts in a fun way.
