About Me

 ABOUT ME:

 
I have been teaching music in the Michiana area for about 17 years. For most of that time, I taught piano in Notre Dame's Music Department. Four years ago I started a private piano studio on the south side of South Bend. Music is my love and my passion, which I will gladly share with you and your children.
I hold a master’s degree in classical piano and theory and music history from the best music schools of Moscow and Leningrad, Russia. My extensive education, strong training, and rich background teaching students from different countries will help you achieve your music goals and enhance your own music experience. My teaching philosophy includes supporting, empowering, engaging, caring, sharing, reflecting, nurturing, and assessing.
Welcome to my class!

Student Reviews




South Bend, IN

Ms. Anna is an outstanding teacher. She is kind, warm, and patient. We have had three children learn piano with her for over nine years. Our oldest daughter will even complete her International Baccalaureate course in music composition at her high school in piano with the assistance of Ms. Anna this coming year. Anna works with all ages well. She is demanding but in a warm and gentle way. We are grateful for the gift of music she has given our children and family!

My daughters and I tooks lessons with Anna Petkova at Notre Dame and I have studied with her privately for some time . We found her to be a very dedicated teacher who puts a great deal of thought into each lesson for each pupil. She is not just a dedicated teacher, but also a very effective one, capable of working with students at any level of age, accomplishment and ability. I recommend her highly!

I have never learned to play an instrument before. I am 43 years old and I love learning, Anna makes it seem so easy. Even though I am an adult I am starting with simple pieces and working my way up. I can't believe how far I've come in just 12 lessons. I'm no Chopin or Beethoven, but on my way. I would recommend Anna to anyone looking to learn the piano.

We found Anna through a reference from Notre Dame's music department, and asked her to teach piano to our son, who is in his middle years of grade school. We found Anna to be extremely competent and supportive. Her expertise shows—our son is making excellent progress. Anna challenges him with a wide range of music to play, and it fills our house with classical, folk, jazz, and seasonal tunes. Our son is never disappointed when it is time for music lesson—he enjoys meeting with Anna. She has a nice way with students. We have had friends who had been using Anna, but then moved to a school-based instructor for convenience and they report a drop off in their child's development. We'd recommend Anna to anyone—from child to adult—looking to learn from an excellent musician and teacher.
