Concert Pianist with more than 20 years of experience teaching private and group lessons (Piano,Music Theory)

Methodology

I believe in teaching music not just "piano"; Learning music should not sound too technically challenging or analytical unless if specifically needed by an advanced student; I also believe in learning to play an instrument you learn a lot of things through doing it; the job of the teacher is not to overwhelm the student by "information" but rather to be a corrective but actively engaged observer who knows how to make music making a joyful experience;
- For beginners I focus on a good understanding of the basic elements of music: Rhythm & Melody (and later on Harmonies)
- For Intermediate students I use the advanced volumes of the methods material, as well as some supplemental material I introduce based on the individualized needs of the students (this may include technical exercises or Ear-training).
- For advanced learners, the lessons follow more individualized problem solving consultations; the student can choose any piece that he or she prefers and I offer guidelines to help her learn the material in the most efficient way within the shortest period of time possible;
* One final note on musical memory: Piano is an instrument that you are required to perform its pieces on stage by heart even for the beginners level; this is not only the area many students (and even advanced pianists) get nervous about (fear of forgetting any part of the musical score can be nerve-racking) but even teachers seem not to have a method how to help beginner or advanced students with the material they need to cover this area; My years of performing , teaching and research in the field of Performance has equipped me with some of the most reliable techniques to help students overcome the personal boundaries of performance; Put it short learning music this way is a life-empowering experience that enriches several aspects of our existence; This way music itself is not just the final goal, but a means to a greater end, to become a better & stronger human being; This is my philosophy of teaching

Background

As I started learning music at a very early age, and as a person who has been on stage performing music since I was 10 years old, I believe I totally connect with the learning needs of students at any given age, more specifically that of children; I believe we as individuals of parents have a very serious responsibility to discover and then nurture any given talent that is seeded inside of us; I have to be thankful that my parents discovered that and by the time I was just an adolescent I got enough exposure to receive admission to the "high-gifted program" at Vienna conservatorium, Austria; Before I get my Performer's diplima and Undergrad degree as well as my Master Degree in piano performance from Indiana University, I had the chance to study with great masters in several masterclasses with famous names like Lazar Berman (Hanover, Germany, 2004), Perticaroli (Salzburg Austria, 2005, 2008), John O'Connor (Adamant, USA, 2007). In Indiana University I was one of the very few students who was accepted to the highly competitive classes of Professor Auer, Pressler and Brancart while also studying Chamber music with Emille Naoumoff and Jazz with David Baker;
