Tatyana's Piano Studio
My students are like a second family to me. I have a very personalized approach to teaching, I am fully invested in my students' results. My Russian educational background influences a disciplined teaching style but I throw in a laid-back, personalized approach to the mix so that a student is making progress but there is limited stress in the learning process.
I enjoy getting to know my students and helping them accomplish their goals; watching them progress from complete beginners to performances in recitals or even as professional recording artists!

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I set up goals and address any concerns with the student/parents. Based on any previous experience the student may have and individual abilities we start working towards achieving the goals. Each lesson I have a plan and I give homework so there is weekly/monthly/yearly progress which is very rewarding and enjoyable for me and the student.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Most of my music and piano education comes from Russia, from elementary music school through the Rimsky-Korsakov music college and institute of art. I also completed the Yamaha Teaching Course in the States.
How did you get started teaching?
I started teaching while I was still a student at the Rimsky-Korsakov music college in Russia, since I was 17 years old.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have all types of students. I have very young children, 2 1/2 year old’s and my oldest student is over 90 years old. I teach students with a vast range of previous musical experiences and abilities from complete beginners to professional recording artists.
