Piano lessons in the comfort of your own home. I can travel to your home location in Morris, Essex and Union County New Jersey.

I am a Russian born and educated pianist with a PhD in Piano Teaching and Accompaniment with 30 years of professional experience. In St. Petersburg Russia, I was a piano instructor at the Vaganova Ballet Academy. I was also a piano accompanist at the Mariinksy Theatre in St Petersburg, Russia. I was a soloist with various chamber ensembles in Russia. I had also performed on radio and television.

Upon coming to the United States, I have spent many years as a private piano instructor teaching all levels. My standards of excellence are at the highest level. My teaching method allows the students to quickly advance in skills/technique. I have many students, who at the age of 9 and 10 years old, excelled so rapidly that they were playing piano at a college level. By 11 or 12 years old, many are already playing complicated pieces by Rachmaninoff and Chopin.
