Dr. Lora Bagryanova

Teaching Credentials

I have over 14 years of experience in teaching piano to children and adults of all levels. I have a Doctorate in Musical Arts (Summa cum laude) from the University of Southern California. There, I studied piano with Prof. Daniel Pollack, a world-known pianist and teacher. As assistant to Prof. Daniel Pollack I taught individual piano lessons to graduate and undergraduate piano majors and minors. A priority in my teaching is to help the students find the unique qualities of their talent and to foster love for music. I teach with a lot of enthusiasm and patience, which helps me interact with my students as I guide them through their individual learning process.

Performing Credentials

Apart from my passion for teaching I have also given many performances both as a soloist and as a collaborative musician. As recitalist and orchestra soloist I have made numerous appearances in the United States, Bulgaria, Italy, Germany and The Czech Republic. I have been the prize winner of several competitions including "Franz Schubert" International Piano Competition and International Competition in Racconigi-Italy, "Liszt-Bartok" National Competition in Bulgaria. As a collaborator, I have years of experience accompanying other musicians who played violin, viola, cello, woodwind and brass instruments. I have made recordings for the Bulgarian National Radio and Television. I am a member of the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) and the College Music Society (CMS).
