I view teaching as a moral and essential responsibility musicians should experience and enjoy. The fun derived from making music and imparting the product is the very thing which fuels my drive to increase dimensions and achieve higher planes. It is my desire to be able to meet the needs, the talents and interest of every student. Patience and flexibility, still to be more fully defined in my thinking reflect characteristics of musicians who enjoy and appreciate the totality of music and its ministry.
Dr. Rus is an excellent teacher and mentor. She is an outstanding professor and is knowledgeable in all areas of music. Dr. Rus is the kindest and most generous professors I have ever met throughout my studies in music. Dr. Rus cares and wants her students to excel in music. I highly recommend Dr. Rus as a professor.
Dr. Rus is in business of making you feel comfortable about performing and making piano fun. I have learned so much in the past two semesters with her! For instance, I finally understand how to properly practice using the 10 minute method and how to memorize by saying the note names while playing. I can tell that she genuinely cares about her students and I always look forward to seeing her! She is extremely encouraging and consistently has a positive attitude when it comes to learning piano, especially performing. It’s been an amazing and awesome time having Dr. Rus as my piano professor!
I’m a piano performance major student, and I had a few great piano teacher before. But Dr. Rus is absolutely the greatest piano teacher that I had. Her teaching style is very unique and will make your piano skill growing fast! Dr Rus is a pianist not only plays well, but also knows how to use a good way to teach students of good methods. She is the person that with good personality and artistic temperament drive students in different ways according to different situations of level of the students. I love Dr. Rus because I learned both metal skills and technique skills in her scientific method of education psychology!
