Fast progress piano lessons with the effective Russian method

Welcome to my online Piano Class.
I will happily help you achieve your musical goals, from the basic fundamentals of piano playing (reading music, positioning your hand on the keys) to building a wonderful sound and technique, allowing you to play any song.
I respect all students, I listen to their concerns and I am always happy and creative in helping them express themselves through music.

Extra information

Please, message me prior scheduling, to check my availability, as I haven't modified the weekly program due to different time zones. (That is also why I appear to be at 2 locations, to cover the students from Asian time zones.)

About Me

I am an experienced piano professor, teaching since 1997. Also, I am the author of 3 books on the piano pedagogy (a beginner piano method, a teacher's guide for group piano to preschools, and a Christmas piano music book).
.
I had the luck, as a student, to be guided by excellent Russian piano teachers, and I have seen how effective is the Russian piano school on every child's musical development and technique. I teach these fundamental principles, and I am proud of all my students' progress.

I love music and playing piano!
I love children and my moto is "Every child is an artist, unless he's/she's told he's/she's not an artist" - I am also a lucky mom of 3 daughters!
I love animals and our planet!
I love cooking, dancing, dreaming big and sharing my knowledge 🥰

Education

Athenaeum International Cultural Centre (class Marianna Aivazova ) "Piano Diploma"
Schola Cantorum Paris (class Agathe Leimoni) “Diplôme Supérieur d' Enseignement de Piano”
Masterclasses with Sontraud Speidel, Paul Badura-Skoda, Aquiles Delle Vigne, Yuri Bogdanov, Sergei Senkov, Claudio Constantini, Rafael Salinas, Marina Pliassova, Borislava Taneva, Lilia Boyadjieva and others.

Experience / Qualifications

I have performed for several years, in solo piano concerts, as member of a piano duo, and with orchestra in Athens, Greece and Poros island.
Since 1997 I have mostly worked with younger students and the first six years of piano repertoire. I believe these years are the most significant for a students' musical development.

The musical and technical skills I give to my students and the high level of knowledge allow them to participate and win prizes in formal piano concerts and competitions.

Since the pandemic I began teaching online and I believe that if both the teacher and the student have the appropriate equipment, the music lesson can be very efficient and offers both to them the chance to connect and work together.
For the first few years (depending of the student's age, skills and devotion) I teach through the Russian piano method books.

Reviews (6)

Very good, I enjoyed my first lesson and the contact. Maria took the time and taught me how to "feel" the piano with my body weight and gave me equipment to practice with, I recommend!
Translated by Google. Click to view original.
This was the first lesson between Maria and my 6 years old son. My feedback is positive. She has a very interesting and pleasant first approach. I highly recommend her.
Wonderful lesson. Very responsive, experienced, client-oriented teacher who cares about your learning experience and seeks to maximise the rate of progress. Very pleased.
Maria is a great teacher for my 10yo. We have had 15 sessions with Maria so far. She has great patience and passion in teaching kids. Maria sends out post-lesson videos to help my girl with her practices. This is very helpful. Maria is always very encouraging and my kid love learning with her.
Maria is the best teacher someone could ask for! As a beginner, I have only positive things to share; Maria always takes the time to explain everything in a way that is easy to follow, even though you have no clue about music. She even puts a lot of effort outside of the scheduled lessons by sharing videos of the teaching material she had taught you and sending you a lot of theory exercises to practice. But the most important thing to me is that Maria is always available to answer any questions you may have! I would definitely recommend Maria for piano lessons whether you are a beginner or an advanced student!
