How did you get started teaching?

I am learning how to play piano since I am 5 years old.

It was not easy for me. Many times I wanted to quit.

But I kept going and, suddenly, I loved it.

Learning how to play piano is a difficult task and it needs lots of patience, encouragement, support and perseverance.

I started to teach when I was 16 years old. Since then

I try to provide all my student with such support. Help them to learn through variety of techniques, using their strongest learning modalities.

I believe that everyone can succeed in learning instrument if they have the right guidance.

Learning instrument benefit every single student because it helps them to build a strong character, teaches to reach their goals.

Learning music helps students to become well rounded individuals and prepares them for the future life challenges. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Any ages, beginners, intermeduim, advanced are welcome to our studio.

There is no difficult students for us.

Everyone is an unique characted and we work with anyone who wants to learn.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Every Year our institution has a recital. 

Every year we rent a venue and prepare our students for this event.

Each recital is Unique and we try every Year to make it memorable and special adding some humor and unique numbers to it.

Every students has an opportunity to shine.

Every Reciatal is very important for me.

I am very excited for our upcoming Disney Classics Recital 2017.

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

"You use a glass mirrow to see your face; you use works of arts to see your soul"

George Bernard Shaw

Every lesson is priceless if you are with the right teacher.

The best teacher will do nothing for you if you so not want to learn. 

You have to like the teacher and trust him/her. But you the one who have to work to achive desired goals.

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

I would ask the teacher about his/her vision for their students and then deside if it reasonates with your goals.

Try to learn what kind of training the teacher will offer you rather then just jump to the question about the price. Remenber if you have a good teacher and you understand each other and work with each other well, then each lesson in priceless.
