I enjoy helping students develop a deeper passion for various genres of music,   elevating their understanding of musical concepts, and guiding them on their path of becoming serious musicians.

    My daughter started to take piano lessons with Inna when she was 6. She is now an engineering major in college. Her last piano concert was after her high school graduation. Inna managed to keep her interested and motivated through the hardest and busiest school years, developed my daughter's sense of musicality, taught her to love and appreciate classical music. Inna adjusts the requirements based on each student time, interests, and ability and puts just the right amount of pressure to get them to their individual goals.

    Inna has been an amazing teacher ever since I started with her as a little kid. She has made learning and playing piano incredibly fascinating. Most teachers just tell their students to play music blindly, without focussing on the details; Inna has not only helped me to read music carefully but has taught me proper techniques and musical theory that has elevated my level of musicality. She really cares about the way that I emote, always spending the time with me to rigorously go over pieces, without seeming overly strict or austere. She has definitely been an artistic inspiration for me and carries with her an incredible passion for music, which has been passed down to me after all these years learning from her. One of the best in the business!
