Piano teacher with 30 Years of experience in the field with Master of Arts Degree
I will teach any student of any age and level to professionally play piano.
I was a former Milwaukee Ballet accompanist for many years and as of 2002, I am a senior accompanist at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee in the Department of Theatre and Dance.
As a professional pianist, I would like to pass along my expertise and knowledge to all of my students
My Musical Education Background
I graduated from Tbilisi state Conservatory in 1977 with Master of Arts degree.
Genres and Subjects Taught
I believe that every person is born with musical ability. Moreover, my 30+ years of teaching students of all ages and levels makes me sure that learning music doesn't happen overnight but it still can be fun. I offer different components of teaching, depending on your personal goals:
1. Russian method gives a student series of carefully graded pieces that maximizes the progress and is perfect for classical piano. It also places emphasis on musical expression, so the student develops a strong sense of musical color, characterization, and feeling.
2. Traditional sight reading allows you to follow new music sheets or play in an ensemble.
3. Playing duets with beginning, non-reading, and advanced students encourages and enriches their self-expression.
4. The chord-based style is helpful if you like to sing and accompany yourself.
Whether you want to become a pianist or play the piano for relaxation, if you start out for the first time or return after many years away from the piano, I can help you achieve your goals faster and enjoy the process of making music at the piano! If you are interested in lessons please me and we can share our love of music. I am conveniently located in Mequon I have students from Fox Point , Bayside , Cedarburg ,Port Washington Whitefish bay Ozaukee and Milwaukee areas.
