Teaching privately since 2010; first in Moscow, Russia and then in London from 2013. I have been teaching students from a variety of educational and musical backgrounds from very beginners to conservatoire students. I have been helping my students to prepare for all sorts of exams including ABRSM exams and music school entry and end-of-term/year exams, and for competitions, auditions, concerts and to learn violin/viola in general.
Outreach experience includes side-by-side and workshop projects organized by Southbank Sinfonia together with Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School, Oasis Academy and In Harmony Lambeth, Benedetti sessions
Pupils like me for my patience, creativity and my desire to help and assist them in their work. I have good relationships with their parents, too.
My knowledge and my own experience is based on Russian methods of teaching and learning from all the great musicians I have studied with and had masterclasses with. This enables me to teach my students many things such as: how to use their left and right arms and hands and how to coordinate them while keeping their whole body as relaxed as possible. In my work I often use scales, exercises and etudes to concentrate on particular problems, but never forget about the importance of formation of concert repertoire. I demand great care to all the composers' marks from my pupils and always try to help them find bowings and fingerings that work best for them and are appropriate to the music they learn. I teach them to find artistic images that make their work individual and bright. I am always ready to give advice on how to best learn pieces by memory, deal with stress on stage, or while participating in competitions.
But the most important part of the teaching process for me is to try and make a student autonomous; to be able to see how a student learns to use the knowledge I give them. Because of that I pay lots of attention to explaining and showing how to practice and achieve best results as fast as possible in their own work; I usually ask them questions to ensure they understand what and why they do, ask them to find common patterns within a piece and between different pieces, stress the importance of their own efforts. My strategy is through a gradual increase in technical and musical difficulty of learning material, so that my students always feel challenged but are always able to overcome the challenge. Another very important thing for me is to inspire students so they enjoy making music and playing the instrument so I try to make my lessons interesting, pay lots of attention to what they want and welcome their initiatives and encourage them to go to inspiring concerts, listen to amazing video and audio recordings, be musically active.
