  • Anna

    He is very understanding, patient and nice!!! His songs are beautiful!

  • Tanya Laur

    Alex has been teaching piano to my son for less than a year, but I'm seeing a lot of progress. He finds an individual approach to the child. Selects works that are learned with pleasure and passion. After all, the most important thing is that the child after the lesson has a desire to continue and strive for more. Alex showed great professionalism. I am happy and recommend him as a teacher for all ages!

  • Maksim Tkach

    Aleksandr is an amazing piano teacher. I'm an adult new to piano and Aleks has been the most patient teacher. He is very knowledgeable about playing piano and about teaching piano. He listens to your aspirations and customizes the lessons towards those goals while keeping it interesting and engaging. Highly recommended!

  • Vlada Karpuk

    I have had a great experience taking lessons from Sasha! I'm in my seventh month and have learned to play many of my favorite 10's songs! He will teach whatever you desire and in a method that's easily understood!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

 

We all come with a history - musical highlights and inspirations, and sometimes baggage, too. Of all the stories I've heard, the most heartbreaking are from those people who were discouraged at a young age:

 

"You'll never be good enough."

"You can't learn this."

"You're just not musical."

 

Imagine believing such things for the first 30, 40, 50 years of your life. The real tragedy is that it's simply not true.

 

With the right approach, anyone can play.

 

In the words of my students:

 

"I can't believe how quickly I can play real music!"

"It feels easy!"

"Practice is so much fun."

All ages (from 4 till 60 years old). Age, profession - this is not a hindrance to playing the piano.

I'm Ukrainian. I was a volunteer in the war in Ukraine, Helped many people in hot spots. And we managed to play a concert for the military. I will never forget these emotions.


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

Find a teacher who not only works, but who can instill in you a love of music. I now understand that it is not the price of the lesson that matters, but the teacher you come to.


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

Why is he teaching music? How many students did he have? What kind of music did he play? Where and with whom did he study? Reviews of parents about him. Is he ready to look for individual development methods for students?
