My 9 year son started remote piano classes with Olga in September. After a first semester, my son learned multiple songs and was also able to develop his technical skills. Olga is organized, reliable and cares about her teaching. She is particularly good and up to date with the use of technology for the best experience in remote piano classes and monitoring of practice. For instance, she uses an application for homework that makes it easier for my son to do his 20 mins of practice per day.

    I have an initial phone call with the students /their parents, to see what their goals are for lessons, and how I can be most helpful. I set up one or two discounted trial lessons to see if we are a good fit, before students commit to a weekly lesson. I develop an individual plan based on students' musical goals.

    Master's degree in both Flute and Piano performance from the Ukrainian National Academy of Music (also known as Tchaikovsky Conservatory),years of performing and teaching experience, a teaching license in music K-12. Training in Kodaly and Orff methodologies.
