Introduction
We are a progressive piano studio with two locations in Portland. We believe in a very individualized approach to teaching music. We look at your strengths and weaknesses and suggest a path of learning best suited to your goals using various methodologies from Russia, UK, France and US. Our students set clear learning targets for themselves based on our ongoing suggestions and with our guidance and best strategies’ practices achieve them by completing their own music projects. We believe in conceptual teaching for all levels using visual charts to explain theory and demo how music is systematized and why. We help you see the big picture and all its components right away so it does not take years to learn all this information. Our services include sightreading instruction, personalized piano technique suggestions, hand coordination strategies, blues and jazz piano technique, rewriting pieces in different genres, music theory from the composer point of view as well as intentional music & lyrics writing lessons, playing by ear & solfège, recording music and vocals, DAW basics and sound mixing. We have several years of experience teaching neurodivergent students and offer musical therapy sessions. We provide recap follow-up assignments messages after each lesson and all printed materials are included. ABRSM and Trinity College Syllabus/Testing available. We are composers of neoclassical as well as ambient electronic music and have been studying piano for over 40 years in France, UK, Russia and US. We love helping students realize their dream of composing music! IN-STUDIO AND ONLINE LESSONS in Portland metro

I was self taught until I met Natalia. I am fortunate to now have a piano teacher that meets me where I am and helps me improve my skills. After a few lessons, I play better than I ever thought I would be able to, with more to come. I am learning music theory in a way that makes sense to me. This journey is better than expected. I highly recommend Natalia as a piano instructor.

Natalia is a fantastic teacher! I really appreciate her patience, flexibility and responsiveness. She has helped me tremendously in a very short amount of time. She is very knowledgable and it doesn't hurt that she has a rad music studio 🤘 She's willing to work with whatever music you are in to - it's been a great experience taking lessons... Highly recommend.

Natalia is great teacher and instructor, i separate the two because she is great at teaching the basics and music theory and she is even better at practice and instruction. She works at your tempo and if you don’t fully understand a concept she will stop and explain it again or go more in depth. One aspect of her class that I really enjoy is her weekly recap emails, she only gives you the work she feels you can handle but is also very patient and understanding. Overall a great experience having her as an instructor.

Natalia is an excellent teacher. I’ve learned so much in such a short time. Natalia has all the great qualities needed in an instructor. She is extremely knowledgeable in theory and has the ability to effectively explain it in application. Natalia is very patient 😀
