Welcome to my Studio! 
 Yuliya Strongovska. 

 I like to see of my student's progress. I think is very important to practice at home 5 days a week at least for 15- 30 min a day under the soft parent's control. The student, parents and me will enjoy it! 

Edults students are welcome as well.

    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!

  • Kristin Hill.

    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.

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

I show to the students a good piano posture, correct  hands motions to create a beautiful piano sound. We will take the pieces of the great composers, classical , contemporary pop and jazz. 
I use different kind of work: rhythm and ear training, piano exercises, dancing ( for the very young students), composition, improvisation , writing the notes. 

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

Personally I began attending a music lessons as a child at the age of 7 and studied music at Lyatoschinsky Music School for children in for 8 years . I graduated from the piano faculty at Zhytomyr's College of Music in 1976.
( 4 years) and  Rivne State Humanities University, Ukraine in 1985 , (5 years)
I received a Master Degree in Art of Music, majoring a piano and a conductor of choir. In this way I received a pedagogical and music education, continuing  my studies at various refresher teaching piano courses and self teaching. Im participating at few FB piano teachers groups  and I'm  teaching young teachers.

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

For  students:

Love music, be serious, punctuated, hardworking and you got

fun and great results ! 

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

What is the music do you listening? Do you like a piano sound? Do you singing?

I'm teaching a vocal as well.
