I have over 25 years of teaching experience, and have given master classes in many different countries . 

Some of my students have gone on to become teachers themselves, which makes me very happy.

I came from a Russian classical background, but have adopted many other styles; country, jazz, rock, Latin and many more.

The program begins with a foundation of classical exercises and moves in the direction that the student wants to pursue.

I like to mix classical with contemporary music, which tends to keep it more interesting for the student. 

 Our school provides demo disks for students to apply for grants and scholarships, and I'm proud to say that none of them have ever been turned down.
