Dear Students and Friends.

Born with perfect pitch and prodigious understanding of music, I've created a new technique of teaching how to play the piano. My musical background comes from Russia, majoring in Piano Performing, Instruction, Accompaniment and Composition. I've given hundreds of concerts in contries such as Russia, Europe, and the United States. For many years I've been teaching piano privetly, and institutionally using my new teaching methods. By responding to this invitation, you will have an opportunity to experience a new teaching technique that will allow you to enjoy the art of Piano. 

Course of study piano, music theory, harmony, ear training.

Open lessons, recitals will be throughout the year. Students will have an opportunity to perform their program in concert hall. 

Thank you for your attention.

I'm a composer, pianist, singer, an artist by blood. I spoke with music language from very early age. When I grew up, I understood how much is important to pass on your education and knowledge to a younger generation. It is a pleasure to share my experiences with my students, who are willing to spend their time on learning something new, something more and perhaps dedicate their time and talent to a music career. My teaching experience is long enough, as much as my music career. My time is very little, but I always have an extra time for new students, which I enjoy to teach as much as I enjoy to perform. I’m here to help you to reach your goals.

Thank you.

    My daughter was Livs student for 6 years. Very happy we met her. Our griend recommend her to us. My little girl previously had not very pleasant experience with former piano teacher. Liv did helped her to fight such fear. I can't tell how much we are grateful to Liv for teaching my daughter music. Livs open lessons, recitals helped my daughter to beat the stage fear. We are very thrilled and happy to our daughter playing piano, thanks to Liv.

    Liv was my sons piano instructor years ago. He graduated the university and workes. Fro time to time he comes back and plays piano. I believe, it is a such pleasure to see your son doing it. This is all to thank Liv. She's highly professional, who's so much passionate about what she loves. It is teaching, playing piano and composing. Check her music out. Truly talented person, and a great individual.

FAQs


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

If a student is a beginner, we will start with learning basic theory, learning the notes, duration of the time, piano keys and more, which will help to do the first steps to learn and play the piano. If, the student previously learned  to play piano, we will repeat of what he learned before and continue from there...

My teaching expecience started from high school. I was helping my schoolmates, friends, and my neighbors with no charge. Who ever was in need with piano lessons I would help.

It is very important to hire a professional tutor with teaching experience preferably with some references from other students.
