Welcome to the Finger Lakes Piano Music Studio!

" I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy, but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to  learning."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             - Plato

After teaching music and piano for 18 years, I still love to meet my new students and introduce them to the marvels of music-making and learning to play piano!

I have taught a diverse group of students from different backgrounds, various ages. My studio has had young children who were home- schooled or attended public and private schools, teenagers, and adults ages 25 - 86. 

My in-depth and well structured program prepares a classical pianist through the utilization of the Austrian/German and Russian classical piano school methodologies.  It is challenging but rewarding - the students improve their mind, discipline, develop patience, they enjoy learning new music and piano skills, learn folk music of various ethnic populations of the world.   

I devote lots of time to teaching excellent piano skills and proper hand technique. Each lesson includes ear training, piano technique training, sight reading, music theory, learning music pieces of the program.  This piano pedagogy is the result of the collaborative work of the distinguished Russian music professors and teachers, and based on the piano school of great L.V. Beethoven through the teaching of Carl Czerny, the beloved student of Ludvig Van Beethoven.

I know that learning happens best in a friendly, nurturing environment.  That is what my students find in my studio.

My students participate in our yearly studio recital and Rochester Piano Teachers Guild recital, for most ambitious students there is an opportunity to take part in the local colleges piano competitions.

I teach from my private Finger Lakes Piano Music studio at 91 Chapin Street, in the City of Canandaigua.
