About Me

I started playing piano at 5 and violin at 7 years old. I attended the prestigious Music School #1 in Bucharest Romania. In US, I played professionally for a number of years in different orchestras. I am also a software engineer with Masters in Computer Science. A background in these two fields led me to create special software for teaching music that can accelerate the learning by as much as 30% to 40%. Kids enjoy it and the parents can understand and follow their children’s learning.

I teach beginner to intermediate levels in piano and all levels in violin. Depending on your location I would be available to come to your home for lessons. The advantage is that parents don't need to drive and take time to wait for the child.

You can see a demos of the software at:

My Musical Education Background

Bachelor and Masters degrees from Wayne State University, Mi.
I have obtained scholarships all through my studies at the University, which paid for my school. I was a winner of the national Bach competion.

Masters in Computer Science form Georgia Institute of Technology.

Genres and Subjects Taught

Classical training mainly. I emphasize the correct technique so the students can enjoy playing with ease. “My kids” (they are like my extended family) learn music reading, rhythm, and theory. And most of all I know how to teach practicing effectively, so students achieve more in a shorter time. Each student is different so I adjust my demands accordingly.
I believe that students learn more and faster if they enjoy the process.
