As an artist I already had been in America several times and very much enjoyed the friendliness and the warmth of the people who I met here. I was even offered some attractive jobs from the celebrated Sol Hurok management. However, when I came here to stay and live, the situation was completely different. Sol Hurok's office was sold and his management agency didn't exist anymore.
There was no job.
So I decided to try teaching, something I had never done before. Nadia Reisenberg (famous piano pedagogue, who I met in New York) suggested to Mannes College of Music that I could replace a teacher who had gone on maternity leave. I taught a class on a temporary basis. It was my first teaching experience. After that period was finished, the students decided to stay with me.
That's how my life as a piano teacher started. Later I was formally invited to become a faculty member at Mannes and a few years later was invited to teach at Manhattan School of Music. Since then, my teaching life expanded significantly. I always have a big class. Students are coming from different countries. For example, last year I had students from 19 countries.
Among my students are winners of international piano competitions as well as professionals occupying prestigious positions in the musical world.
All these years, I have been traveling extensively, giving concerts, master classes, courses, and lectures, in countries like Germany, England, Spain, Austria, Finland, Israel, Thailand, Philippines, South Korea, Mexico, Russia, USA, Canada, France, Belgium.
In my life I have traveled extensively. Among the most memorable places is Barcelona, with its unforgettable architecture.
Some of my students have been travelling with me to different countries.
