My approach is based on the traditional Russian teaching methodology, where special attention is paid to foster correct technique and develop an imaginative and vivid performance of any musical material, whilst being able to adjust to personal needs of a student. Great care is paid to music theory, aural skills, solfège, improvisation, musical analysis, sight-reading and other disciplines that make up an all-rounded musician. Each of my lessons is tailored to student’s needs and I cover most of the musical genres.
I currently offer:
- Piano / Composition / Music Theory / Music Technology tuition
- ABRSM Grade exams preparation.
- Playing for personal pleasure and learning
- Consultation about assignments and homework
ALL AGES & ABILITIES (from age 5 to adult learners, beginner to advanced)
I teach from my flat in Surrey Quays, but can also travel to my students (where a travel fee will be added to the standard rates).
I am a London-based pianist, musicologist, and composer with more than 20 years of experience. I am also a dedicated and experienced piano, composition, music theory and music technology tutor offering excellent and in-depth tuition for any age or ability. I have been teaching extensively in schools and privately, giving lectures at universities and have set-up my own teaching platform ‘Musikademi’. I would be happy to share my passion and enthusiasm for music with you !
My musical path started at Moscow Jurgenson Music School in Russia at the age of 7 where I took my first piano and music theory lessons. After 8 years of full-time studying I graduated with distinction. In 2015, I graduated from Goldsmiths, University of London specialising in classical and contemporary performance (under Andrew Zolinsky) and music education. Recently, I have completed my masters programme at Goldsmiths, University of London specialising in contemporary musicology (under Keith Potter) and music management.
Since 2012, I have been performing and premiering contemporary classical music solo or with ensembles at various venues, including IKLECTIK, Arebyte Gallery, Southbank Centre, Cheltenham Music Festival and Teatro Baltazar Dias (Madeira, Portugal). I am a core member of the New Maker Ensemble, a group dedicated to experimenting with various art forms of new music and performance art.
I have prepared a great number of students for their piano and theory ABRSM exams both privately and at various music schools. The large majority of the results are distinctions and merits. Many of my students went on to study music at a higher institutional level. Some students received music scholarships while studying with me.
