About this pro

I try to incorporate the study of music into the student's own lifestyle in a natural way so as not to make it alien to his everyday life and the things that are enjoyable and necessary to him. However, together with this attitude I try to teach a love for work. I teach my students that music is something they can express their feeling with and enjoy, but at the same time I'd like them to understand that they need to work to feel a sense of accomplishment. 
"Love and study the great art of music. It will open a whole new world of feelings, needs and thoughts, and will elevate you spiritually. You will see life in different shaded and colors."
D. Shostakovich

The study of music has been an integral part of a well rounded education for thousands of years. In my opinion teaching music is the most wonderful career, especially if it becomes an essential part of the student's life. I believe this is the greatest reward for a teacher. I enjoy working with both children and adults and believe that any student whether a child or adult, can gain great benefits and enjoyment through music. It' s a gift to treasure all through life.

    Irina has been in my life for more than a decade as a teacher of piano in my adult years. She continues to express her belief that it is never too late, believing the age of the student is immaterial––all you need is intelligence, persistence, and a deep desire to learn music. Irina’s teaching method is thorough, compassionate, and filled with her own love for the piano and the beauty of sound produced by this instrument. Her methods are organized in a logical and effective way. There is nothing mechanical about them, whether we work on technique, theory, musicality, effective practicing, or building repertoire. There are many aspects of the piano Irina has embedded deeply in my musical learning. I will list four: the value of disciplined concentration; persistence of slow but through practice; being tender with this lovely instrument will in turn bring it to sing, and the ability to listen––to listen for the sounds of joy, of song, of melancholy, of drama, of subtleties. These values continue to teach me to see and hear music in many different ways. Irina will be in my musical life for many more years. I am deeply grateful to the alignment of the stars for this.
