About this pro

My name is Elena Fainshtein, and I am a professional Accordion Performer, Accordion/Bayan Teacher, Piano Teacher, and Conductor. I posses a Master Degree of Art in Music. I went to the Minsk Music College, graduating with the highest grades possible. After music college, I attended the Academy of Music in Minsk, which I graduated in 1987.I have been teaching the accordion and the piano for over 25 years and am dedicated to providing high-quality lessons to both children and adults in my studio. Recently I started Accordion Skype lesson and find it very interesting. My students range from beginners to advanced players, and I work with each person individually to establish the right method in developing their skills. I am very proud of the achievements of each and every one of my students. With their new skills, some of my piano students have been playing for senior citizens at retirement centers while others have accompanied the choir at their schools.I like to see families performing together, such as siblings, a daughter with her father, or a grandson with his grandma. It is beautiful to watch a child inherit passion for music and to see music last throughout generations.Please contact me for information about prices and availability. I can’t wait to assist you or your child in making beautiful music and learning a skill that will last a lifetime.

    Elena is great! She helped me to find the right accordion. She is flexible in scheduling. She customizes the class to suit my needs. She is knowledgable, positive, energetic, and well organized. She is an excellent accordionist and she will help her students to be as well. I'm really happy to find her. If you're looking for an accordion instructor in the area, search no more. Hire Elena!
