My Musical Education Background

Miryana is also deeply committed music educator who began teaching privately in 2002. She has taught in music elementary and middle school, and music high school as well as at the university level, as a Teacher Assistant at Florida International University. Miryana believes that it is important that the children experience music and art through learning and playing an instrument; that is a powerful tool in shaping one’s personality and aesthetics. In her teaching method her goal is to combine the high level of technique with musicality and individual interpretation. The beginners’ lessons are systematized as a successful blend of fun musical games and new academic material, thus learning new is fun and inspiring. Believing that each student deserves individual approach, she is enthusiastic to help people of all ages to learn, grow, and succeed in music.

Mira really helped me develop and stay on track with my piano lessons and was flexible with scheduling. I’m thankful for the time I had with her. Unfortunately, I moved away or I would have loved to continue lessons with her. She is awesome!
