  • When I meet a new family for trial lesson, I like to talk to the parents. Mainly to understand what they would like to achieve by signing their child/children for piano lessons. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That is super important for me, because it gives me sense of direction.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Of course, it’s hard to know exactly until the child spends some time taking lessons what kind of abilities he/ she has. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If parents want to give the child an opportunity to learn, so in the future they could understand and appreciate music more, that would be one approach.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If parents would like the child to play at more serious level, compete, perform and maybe choose to go to Music Conservatory later, I would definitely choose a bit different plan of action.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s important to know where you want to go!

  • Have you ever thought why little kids are so creative?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why they have no fear?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why when they play games (I am not talking about video games), it is very easy for them to act? 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They access that creative place without hesitation. They don't think and don't judge themselves. They just do it!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We, adults, have to learn from the kids. Not to compare ourselves to others, not to constantly analyze each step.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am talking about life in general, but more particularly about  playing piano. It is easier said than done, but we can try!

  • I do not post my playing on this page since its totally dedicated to the Homeschool Music Conservatory.

But once in a while I feel it's appropriate to share with you some of my playing. 

This particular clip is from the last concert my dearest friend and colleague @VassilyPrimakov and I played at the Bronxville Women'd Club in march of this year.

Playing with Vassily is simply a dream come true! We come from the same school where we studied with the same teacher. That helps of course when you play one piano four hands.

But the real ensemble is much more than that. Feeling the music and breathing together comes from experience and a lot of work.

Enjoy!

  • When you are so frustrated that you are about to shut the piano and walk away from a piece, take a deep breath and remember the moment right after your last successful performance or a great recording.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Learning a piece is a long process and not always a pleasant one...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But the reward is too great to miss out on! 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In this perseverance your character is build!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My mom used this strategy with me. When I was tired and unhappy with the way my piece was sounding, she would say in a calm voice -“ ok, let’s just play it one more time and you can stop for today”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And almost always, it was a little better. Next day it was A LOT BETTER!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just don’t give up!

  • I often try to imagine how people danced to Strauss’s  Waltzes  or Schubert’s Ländlers... It must have looked absolutely beautiful, something like this picture.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When a student asks me what is a “waltz”, I explain that it was a very popular dance. Dances like Waltz or Mazurka were part of their social life and people really danced to it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Music is such an essential part of  people’s lives. Even if we don’t dance to waltzes regularly anymore. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I feel grateful that so many parents understand that and give children the opportunity to study musical instrument of their choice.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Keep it up. Your kids will be thankful to you. Maybe not right now, but definitely in the future!

  • Recently one of my clients asked what do I do to have so much energy to teach?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thats because I don't feel that I am working. Thats because I love all of my students, every one of them! Thats because I can't imagine doing anything else instead....
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am not sure how I got so lucky to find profession that brings me so much happiness? But I did. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I think its because I loved music from childhood. I think it's because I followed my intuition. I think its because I found my sparkle!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What makes you happy?

  • It's all in the mindset!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Like everyone else, I struggle with uncertainty of the times we are living in.....
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How are we going to start the school year? How will my students go back to school? Will we have remote learning or in-person? How this experience will effect my students in the long run?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am convinced that if we look at everything positively, we will find benefits in every moment, enjoyment and satisfaction in every situation.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I see already as a result of remote lessons, my students sharpened their sight-reading skills, became more independent in their thinking, more disciplined and self-motivated. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I choose to think positively!

  • How many times did you hear this at the holiday party - “ I played piano for a couple of years, but I didn’t like to practice and I stopped... I wish my parents made me stay with lesson! I wish I learned how to read music better”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Or “ I started when I was 5, but it got boring and I quit. I wished my parents were stricter and made me practice!”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a pianist I hear this ALL THE TIME after concerts or at any party. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So how can we, teachers, make sure when a student gets to the point of “boring” or “ don’t like to practice” that they stay with it??
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I struggle with this often... especially with the students that have musicality. I know that if they stop, the regrets will follow sooner or later.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, I do everything in my power to make them enjoy their repertoire, enjoy lessons....

  • I am often asked by parents “ How can I help my child if I never took any music lessons?”

I grew up in the home of professional pianists. I was lucky to have tremendouse support and help. To be honest, I don’t know what I would have achieved if it wasn’t for both of may parents….

It is very difficult to master an instrument. When you are young, you don’t know how to practice and why you have to practice.

Hopefully, this video will give a little bit of help. I tried to assemble some basic concepts for parents.

Let me know if you like it…...♫

  • When you hear all the work, sweat and tears, resulting in a big improvement at the moment of the performance, it feels very rewarding!
This little student of mine only studies with me for one year! To be precise, one year and one month. 

He has a lot of discipline and he is very hard working ! 

It’s never too late to learn! You just need to start. ❣️💜💖

  • When I meet a new family for trial lesson, I like to talk to the parents. Mainly to understand what they would like to achieve by signing their child/children for piano lessons. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That is super important for me, because it gives me sense of direction.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Of course, it’s hard to know exactly until the child spends some time taking lessons what kind of abilities he/ she has. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If parents want to give the child an opportunity to learn, so in the future they could understand and appreciate music more, that would be one approach.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If parents would like the child to play at more serious level, compete, perform and maybe choose to go to Music Conservatory later, I would definitely choose a bit different plan of action.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s important to know where you want to go!

  • I often try to imagine how people danced to Strauss’s  Waltzes  or Schubert’s Ländlers... It must have looked absolutely beautiful, something like this picture.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When a student asks me what is a “waltz”, I explain that it was a very popular dance. Dances like Waltz or Mazurka were part of their social life and people really danced to it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Music is such an essential part of  people’s lives. Even if we don’t dance to waltzes regularly anymore. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I feel grateful that so many parents understand that and give children the opportunity to study musical instrument of their choice.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Keep it up. Your kids will be thankful to you. Maybe not right now, but definitely in the future!
