Music is not my job, it is my life and passion. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with people, and if I see that my students enjoy themselves as I do, my heart starts filling with happiness and joy.

    Selecting Kamilla as my piano teacher was successful in every way.

  • Susan Chung

    Kamilla has extensive knowledge and superb skill. Within a few minutes, she diagnosed my problems and corrected them. I instantly improved. She also suggested pieces I never thought I could play. She is also a perfectionist, encouraging me to aim high. What I really like about her is her attitude toward music. Her love and passion for music, piano, and musicians are contagious, and her interpretation and understanding of each piece are amazing. I learned a lot from her and came to love piano even more. Thanks Kamilla and I will miss you so much.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Before I start the lesson, I need to get to know the student and his/her goals. Is there a specific aim? Do they want to study professionally or just for fun? Do they want to master a specific skill like sight-reading, improvisation or fast technique? Depending on the answers, I pick certain tactics and materials I'll use with that specific student. I also check the student's abilities (pitch, sense of rhythm, etc.) After this short test, I create a unique program that fits each student individually.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A classical music concert at the Colburn Conservatory. New City Ballet Principal Dancers joined Colburn Conservatory musicians with music by Arvo Part. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would recommend you to ask the teacher to play for you before the lesson starts.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Music like any other activity takes time and perseverance. Make sure you or your child has time to practice. Also, it is very beneficial to have an upright or grand piano and not simply a keyboard to practice on.
