About this pro

Hi, I am a certified piano teacher. I teach Royal Conservatory Of Music Development Program.

This program provides a recognized national standard of musical success through an effectively sequenced course of study from beginner to advanced levels. The Music Development Program inspires excellence through individual student assessments and allows students to celebrate accomplishment and track their progress with others across the country. It also supports teachers with high-quality and innovative resources. All students deserve the opportunity to celebrate their musical achievements nationally. Join the growing community of teachers, students, and families who are discovering the benefits of the Music Development Program as it enriches their lives!

 I love working with students of all ages—children to adults. My own music training started young with piano lessons starting at age 6.  I’ve never stopped learning!

My number one goal is for students to learn to LOVE music and to see piano lessons as a creative form of expression— not a chore or a part of a to-do list.

Every person’s piano learning style is like a finger print with their own unique set of characteristics. I enjoy bringing out the best in each person’s piano learning style, while instilling confidence and inspiration

Every student needs something different and unique from their teacher in order to thrive, grow, learn, and remain inspired. I enjoy getting to know the learning style of each individual, and catering my teaching methods and repertoire choices to fit what they need.

I teach both classical and contemporary piano in a variety of styles and genres. Lessons are catered to each individual student’s comfort zone and goals. Piano students learn music theory, establish healthy practice habits, and gain overall confidence in their abilities through study and performance.

I believe that teaching music is about inspiring and encouraging the student. What makes a student successful or talented is enthusiasm, interest, curiosity, passion, patience, diligence and dedication. 

In addition to teaching students to read music and play beautifully, I encourage improvisation, playing by ear, and learning to trust one’s own musical creativity

    We are very happy to have found Tatyana as a teacher for out ten year old. Tatyana is very attentive to her students' interests and needs, rigorous in her expectations, and thorough in her explanations. Also, she's deeply involved with the Royal Conservatory program, which my daughter really likes being a part of. Recommend!
