You may also request lessons in composition, harmony, figured bass and composing a melody. For students who do not wish to pursue an academic path through playing guitar, lute, composing music, or understanding music theory, my lessons can be suited to your individual ambitions while still aiming for the highest possible standard of musicianship and enjoyment. Should you wish to study acoustic or electric guitar I can provide tuition in these areas of guitar music. If you are a singer or instrumentalist who is interested in guitar or lute accompaniment for your performance exam, workshop or masterclass, I can offer basso continuo accompaniment on theorbo and lute for music from the baroque era.

Music is my passion. I was captivated by it at a young age, and later, in 2012 I've started to teach piano. My music path starts at Russian music school and then goes to the College of Arts, also in Russia. During this time I was involved in all kinds of musical activities: competitions, live performances and hard studying. In the course of studying, I've found out that what I like most is composition and piano teaching. I love classical music and know about it a lot (yet there is still plenty to discover). I'm eager to share my knowledge and passion with all of you who will decide to learn how to play the piano with me. It's not only about PLAYING the piano... I will not only teach you how to play the piano but how to feel the music as well and express this feeling with the different touch on the instrument. You will discover the secrets of classical music that will prove you it is not boring. Maybe, while playing somebody's pieces, you will discover the desire to create something by yourself. It is possible, even for beginners. You just have to learn some methods and techniques and then let your imagination work. I also help my students to overcome the fear of failure and anxiety that usually comes during performances. My lesson plans based on the personal needs of my students but in general, they include: - piano playing; - music theory; - improvisation; - composition; - playing 4 hands; - listening to classical music.

I’m also available to direct rehearsals and concerts. As a composer I have a diverse range of skills. Whilst most of my work is contemporary classical concert music, I have a good grounding in tonal harmony and am experienced in writing music more typical of past eras and for events such as opening ceremonies and medals ceremonies. I also have knowledge of jazz, having worked in this genre. Lessons comprise of me examining the student's work, discussing it with them (how they've written it, what decisions they've made, what they wish the music to do and be), as well as discussing any suggestions I have to further enhance the effectiveness of the music and their ideas. Lessons can also involve examining works by other composers, giving the student inspiration and knowledge, as well as learning about different compositional techniques, which can include ways to deal with harmony, rhythm, texture, structure, and development of ideas. Please contact me to chat about your/ your child’s musical goals and ambitions and to arrange a lesson. I am able to travel to homes and offices and have a flexible schedule to meet your needs! I have also taught over Skype in the past, where there’s the option of screen sharing, making it possible to demonstrate things on screen. Thank you for reading and I hope to hear from you soon!

I have experience with children, young students and adults in setups like private lessons, schools, music schools and universities. From pop, latin, rock, jazz, funk, metal and everything in between. Whatever genre you identify yourself with, I can help you to improve. E-Bass / Harmony All the way from incorporating rhythm and being one with the groove, to understanding the harmony through your instrument, the bass, as an extension of your musical voice is a rich an potent tool that can be used and controlled through refining your technique, role understanding and starting a journey through it's endless sound possibilities. Guitar for Beginners I can help you out starting on the guitar. Start learning the guitar with a very intuitive and practical approach, take on the rudiments directly from songs and the music you enjoy listening. Band Coaching If you have reached a point where you would like to take the next step with your band, it is always good to have an outsider opinion to help you improve in your musical, song writing and performing processes. Then to count with a great consultant in the management and logistics department is the second step in order to have a strong standpoint as a performing artist. Music Theory I have experience at bachelor level with popular music and jazz ear training, academic research for the Javeriana university in Bogotá about the use of the ear and playing by ear in folclore contexts in Colombia.
