I have over five years of teaching experience. I regularly teach at the Royal College of Music Teaching Services and I also offer private tuition. I am an extremely motivated and ambitious performer and also highly experienced educator. I provide professional advice and help at all stages of learning process. My approach is absolutely individual and depends on student needs. I strongly believe in importance of well-developed instrumental technique and I aim for the highest results. I help students to increase their stage-confidence, when playing, and allow them to be musical and spontaneous. I regularly work with children and youth basing on ABRSM Music Exams and Trinity Music Exams. Additionally, I give my students a great performance platform. Once a term, all of them have a great opportunity to perform individually and with me at our music class recitals. I keep the learning process in a safe and warm atmosphere.
