About Me

I have been teaching the piano for over twenty five years, and I never had a boring day or a bad student. We all have had a few special teachers in our lives who made us love the subjects they taught, and I strive to be one of those teachers. It is a blessing to know that most of my students not just achieve tangible success in their piano studies but most importantly develop love and appreciation for music that will stay with them for life.

With each student I discuss and create a special path of study based on the person's unique goals, abilities,learning styles and interests. I use diverse methods, materials and aproaches that will lead to the optimal and steady musical growth.

Most of my students enjoy performing at festivals and recitals in which I enroll them as an active member of the Music Teacher's Association. Some of my students are interested in the formal, graded path of study with yearly examinations. These students take prestigious international ABRSM exams or state-wide CODA exams. All of these students succeed year after year, usually getting above average scores ( merit and distinction),

With a lot of patience and love on the teacher's behalf, everyone is capable of learning, achieving, and enjoying the process and the results of their work. I would love to be your trusted piano instructor whenever your child is ready to discover the joy of playing the piano.

My Musical Influences

My favorite composers are Bach and Rachmaninoff. They are the closest to my soul. However, music like Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky, or Rhapsody in Blue by Gershwin, or even popular or movie music, it all constantly influences and shapes me as a human being.Music is the best therapy for the soul, and the best activity for the mind.

Student Reviews

Tustin, CA

Ms. Anna has been my children' s piano teacher for three years now, and I am very much impressed by her rare ability to understand personality of every child and demonstrate individual approach to every student she teaches. I believe it is possible only if the music teacher loves children and can recognize the individuality and talent of each child. My son was very reluctant to go for piano lessons but Ms. Anna managed to awaken his interest and even inspire him, so my son passed ABRSM test with distinction. I am highly satisfied with Ms. Anna not only as an incredible pianist but also as a wonderful teacher. She is able to convey her fascination with classical music to her students by telling interesting stories from the lives of great composers , by playing beautiful piano pieces, and by creating that special environment during recitals. I certainly recommend Ms. Anna as a piano teacher to anyone, since she will definitely be able to develop the best in them.

Irvine, CA

Ms. Anna has many qualities for an ideal piano teacher. She is gifted in connecting to her students, understanding his or her strengths and interests, and tailoring her instructions accordingly. Her energy, enthusiasm, and sense of humor make her lessons engaging and fun. Ms. Anna' s training and professional background as an accomplished classical pianist is invaluable, as she can draw on her deep knowledge and understanding of a wide range of classical music. Her artistic intuition , backed by her intellect and empathy, inspires each lesson. Most of all, Ms. Anna becomes a caring friend to her students, parents and community, as her kindness, fairness and generosity always guide her interaction with others around her.
