Tutoring Experience:

I`ve worked for 2 years as a piano teacher and accompanist at Gnessin Music School in Moscow. I had various students of different levels , from beginners to professionals.

Now I’m working in Maunder’s school of Popular Music in Manchester and preparing my students for different ABRSM Grades.

My students get exceptional progress in their music exams and piano competitions.

All levels and ages are very welcome to have a lesson with me.

Tutoring Approach:

I convinced that every student is the unique person, having completely different personalities and thought processing. I'm teaching my adult students how to achieve a balance between the student's imagination and the composer's style of the executed works. But this approach doesn't fit for young pianists at all. In my opinion,The teacher needs to find the best approach to the student to interest him and thereby arouse the desire to study further on the piano. In my classes, students not only have fun but also spend time with benefits.
