I'm one of the very few piano accordion teachers in the South Bay Area. I have a vast repertoire of music in many different styles and can teach at all skill levels. I have small accordions to loan -- they don't stress the back. I love accordion music and love to introduce people to it. Everyone enjoys the music that I play, even if they don't know that they like accordion music.

I feel incredibly blessed to have had Nora's musical influence through out my life. Nora is deeply committed to instilling a deep understanding of music through historical context, music theory as well as the expression of music through her students' connection with music. From Nora's experiences growing up in Russia, her understanding of European history and her natural curiosity for historical culture, her life experiences culminates in the practice room to bring meaning to the music that were written in times of Bach, Beethoven, Schummann, Prokofiev, to the comtemporary. I remember it to be a colorful depiction of what life was like back then, the social revolutionary movements and it's effects on music. She is then able to translate that into the musical notes on the page from form and structure to music progressions to chromatic development to style of playing and articulations. But the most important lesson I learn from her is how to express emotions through music as this is what connects us to the sounds that is being created. Although I have won awards from competitions during Nora teachings, I cannot tell you where those certificates lie but what stays with me in the last 20 years is the love of music, the trained ears for appreciating classical music, the spirit of beauty in the world by valuing music and last but not least the ability to express myself in a deeply satisfying way without using words.

Matilda really understands me well enough (I’ve never met her before btw) to keep me motivated and interested to learn from her. And to top it off, she’s a very funny and loveable person who makes me feel like a person and make this musical journey- our journey. She makes classes intersting and makes sure to choose a path on what ways to develop my skills better all while explaining to me why- and that’s important! (If you can’t tell, I really love her, she’s AWESOME!
