About this pro

I live in West Bradenton,  Florida and love to teach students play piano in my house and in Woodland Arts Academy, Bradenton. As well I teach  online. 

I'm a member of Music Teachers National Association  ( MTNA) , the Florida State ( FSMT) & Manatee County (MCMTA) associations. 42 years of experience, Master Degree of Art. If you would Ike your kids could perform a few times a year! It’s a great for their progress. 

Im teaching a students age of 4.5 y/o  up to 80. 

You wil enjoy to play music of  any styles: classical, , contemporary, jazz, gospel! 


 I like to see a students progress. In 4- 6 lessons my students could participate at the piano recitals, but  is important a to practice at home 5 days a week under the soft parent's control.

    Ms. Yuliya is an excellent piano teacher, she is very patient with my triplets boys that started at age of 5 yrs . She encouraged my sons all the time and let them participate in a lot of competitions . She never fails to believe in their capacity even at their young age. She also treat my boys with kindness. I highly recommend her to any aspiring pianist. Wish she did not move and remains to be my boys piano teacher! Wish her the best !!!

    Ms. Yuliya is very professional and very patiently taught my three kids piano skills. She encouraged them join the state competitions and helped them build their confidence to perform in front of large audiences. I can see them grow both in piano skills and self confidences which attributes to Ms Yuliya endless efforts. I can not thank her enough, and kids miss her a lot since she moved to Florida. A great teacher and highly recommended. Kids or adults can learn great piano lessons from her.

    Mrs. Yuliya, is an excellent piano teacher! Our 3 kids all learned a tremendous amount of material in a short period of time. Every child who takes her class will be 10 times better in 6 months. She is respected by all students under her care. We really miss her and consider ourselves very lucky to have had such a wonderful piano teacher for our kids!

    Awesome teacher. My son worked with her for almost two years and learned how to play and read music. Hosting recitals was also a plus for my son and his development. Mrs. Yuliya is patient and very skilled to work with all ages. She provided all books, learning apps, and flash cards. Wish she didn’t have to move.
