Piano Lessons

Dr Lyapkova is absolutely a brilliant. I had owned a piano for three years at the time of our first lesson, but I always found myself giving up every-time I tried to get back to playing. Dr Lyapkova not only helped me rekindle my love for the piano, but she also helped break down parts that a I had previously found challenging and now I look forward to every class and practise session!

I cannot say enough about Dr. Lypkova! She is brilliant, engaging, and seamlessly merges music theory and practice! I absolutely love the assignments and practice she provides leading up to our online lessons, so our time together is maximized! She is a phenomenal teacher, even from across the country :)

Dr. Lyapkova is the most fantastic piano teacher that we could have found for our children and we are lucky to have her. She doesn't just teach our kids how to play piano; she gives them a deep understanding of piano, music theory, and self discipline and self realization as they are entering the world of music. She is professional, passionate, and motivated as well as being extremely generous of her time (outside of lessons), as well as of her knowledge and talent! We could not have found a more amazing teacher.
