About Me

My name is Natalia and I'm a professional piano teacher with 10 years experience of tutoring.
In my teaching style I combine the advantages of several different methods such as: renowned Russian school, various American techniques and my own inventions and experiences. I'm willing to work with kids who would share my desire to play the piano and establish a creative and working environment during the lesson's time. "All arts aspire to be music"-Walter Horatio Pater said. He was right. Music is a universal language which helps to communicate with ourselves.
- I do all my best to make this task really interesting and enjoyable.
- I provide the opportunity to perform on the stage and evaluate the knowledge through the State Achievement Test.
- I invite you to share a world of sounds with me.
- I expect a serious approach and respect to our lessons and home tasks.
- I enjoy spending time with my family, especially with my little 4-years-old-daughter, singing songs with her and telling the fairy-tales on the keyboard. She is an extraordinary gifted one!

Student Reviews

Lansing, MI

Natalia is a wonderful teacher. My daughter admires her piano lessons and can't wait to the next one. She is a truly professional and demands results in her work. However, she luckily combines hard work and fun activities, so it's always a pleasure to have a piano lesson. Thank you very much for that! Oleg
