Foundation of my teaching style is based on the traditions of the Russian and European Classical Piano and Vocal Schools. 
In my instruction I use famous and unique Russian and European Music School teaching methods which consist of : 
developing strong technique basic, sight reading skills, ear training and rhythm, improving student`s musicality and giving good knowledge in Music Theory.

My Academy welcomes new students who have a true appreciation for classical music, look at musical education with seriousness and dedication, who want to learn to play the piano and sing professionally to receive a solid foundation, and who are ready to put time, serious effort and diligence to grow and develop their musical abilities for the long term in order to enhance their lives.

    My two children were four years old when they started taking piano and voice lessons from Ms. Irene. Both kids were making wonderful strides in piano playing and singing for over three years. It was very unfortunate that Ms. Irene had to move from Massachusetts to Florida in 2011. We have had the hardest time finding a new teacher who would come even remotely close to the quality of education and professionalism of Ms. Irene. Until today we could not find an equally good instructor. My children really liked her classes and her style of teaching. In Ms. Irene my children had a very dedicated and talented instructor, who would give all of herself to teaching music to her students. We feel jealous of those new students that Ms. Irene has now in her new school in Florida. I wish that my children would have continued learning from this amazing piano instructor and a wonderful person. We miss her a lot and continue to keep in touch with our favorite piano teacher. We highly recommend Ms.Irene to anyone interested in a high quality teacher and a very warm person. Don’t miss a chance to learn from the best!

    Outstanding teacher. She is well worth the hour I drive for the lesson. She builds with the basics...not just gives little songs as most teachers do with adults. If you truly want to LEARN the piano this is the teacher you want. Highly recommend..

    Irene is an excellent instructor! Very kind to her students. I am a current college student, taking voice lessons with her, and I can really see a difference since I started. She has developed my voice and taught me a lot of different techniques.

    Miss Irene has been teaching our daughter how to play the piano for over a year and it's amazing to see how much our daughter has learned despite her hearing issues and focusing issues. When she plays her piece, we can't believe that she can actually read and play music now and her singing has improved as well. We are very blessed to have Miss Irene as our daughter's teacher and we highly recommend her as a music teacher!
