Piano lessons from the renowned international concert pianist and a prizewinner of many piano competitions. My approach is founded in the prominent line of the Russian Piano School and is supported by over 20 years of both performance and extensive methodological research and teaching experience. Since 1998 I have taught in various schools in Sydney, have given many masterclasses around Australia and internationally, and the number of my private students has surpassed 350 over the years.
The goal of my instruction is to help each student achieve a perfect balance of such aspects of artistry as cultivating immaculate technical abilities together with emotional comprehension of music. Private lessons allow me to go beyond the focus on simple technical prowess of a particular piece and spend time training specific skills required for concert performance, stage presence and, most importantly, on development of overall artistic expression and independent musical cognition.
I have created a specialised methodology for independent piano practice depending on the level of student’s expertise, which has been proven successful in concert and exam preparation. All my students pass their piano examinations, mostly with grade A or higher, and several also became winners of various competitions and Eisteddfods. I also provide lessons for piano teachers seeking professional development.
The lessons are conducted in my studio in South Hurstville on a Boston grand piano.
