I have been teaching piano and voice for 30 years, this isn’t just my job but also a passion. My mission as a teacher has been to guide all my students to reach his or her highest musical potential and help them fall in love with music. In a friendly and creative atmosphere students learn that playing the piano can be very rewarding and fun, while simultaneously realize that studying it requires effort and perseverance.

"Kudos to Irina for recognizing the value of group lessons for young piano students. My daughter flourished under her instruction. She gradually advanced to Irina's private lessons and at just the right pace to build her confidence. The recital and other performance opportunities were invaluable. Thank you, Irina, for giving Geneva a strong background in music, piano, and perseverance!" Joy Rotondi March 25, 2011
