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.

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!

ACOUSTIC GUITAR LESSONS (BEGINNER AND INTERMEDIATE) and PIANO LESSONS (BEGINNER)
I'm an Irish guitarist with twenty years of musical experience, including as a rhythm guitarist in several bands. I offer guitar lessons for beginner and intermediate players. For beginners, I'll focus on basic chord structures, strumming patterns, and simple fingerpicking techniques. For the intermediate player, I offer more advanced fingerstyle tutorials in a range of styles, covering songs by Jeff Buckley, Bob Dylan, Elizabeth Cotten, John Prine, Joni Mitchell, Fleetwood Mac and Big Bill Broonzy, among others. I also offer beginner piano lessons, covering a selection of simple classical pieces (Grieg, Bach, Beethoven) as well as some non-classical tunes (Tom Waits, Vulfpeck, etc).

Classical singing and vocal training from a professional singer and yoga teacher. Violin and piano classes also available!
I am a trained classical singer from Berlin, but I would like to install myself in Athens. In class, we will build your vocal technique with which you can sing about anything you'd like. As a yoga teacher, I focus on a holistic approach to singing using also yogic tools to improve technique and performance. In the second half of class, we will build a repertoire that you'd like to sing and implement the technique into it. Besides singing I play the violin and piano. I can teach them up to an intermediate level. I have 5 years of experience with all three subjects. Privately and in a music school located in Berlin

Piano Lessons in Classical and Contemporary Styles for Beginning-Advanced Levels (ages 6 and up)
I am a professional pianist offering private piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. As a pianist with 14 years of teaching experience and over 23 years of playing, I enjoy motivating my students with music of their own preferred style and interest, whether that be classical or contemporary. My main goal is to promote a positive experience and love for music-making during the course of learning piano. If the student is interested in a more serious approach, I can also guide preparation for grades 1-8 of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams. I also have successful experience preparing students for conservatory entrance auditions and for various competitions. Recently, my students have achieved the highest marks in the ABRSM exams as well as prizes in competitions. We also have a class concert for interested students twice per year. I am happy working in both a relaxed and serious approach, we simply need to discuss the objectives of the student. My own studies are as follows: I have obtained two postgraduate degrees at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp: "Concertsoloist" in Piano Performance and "Chamber Music." Prior to this, I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Piano Performance/Music from the University of Minnesota and TCU-Fort Worth, TX, USA. My experience includes collaboration with many different instrumentalists and singers, performing as a soloist in orchestra (also as a harpist), and receiving top prizes in several competitions. While maintaining my performance and recording career in Belgium at present, I am developing my private music studio and look forward to meeting new students.

Getting to Grips with Music Theory is simpler than you think!
The theory of everything tends to be really scary and music theory can be too. I am very keen to make music theory easy for everyone. For some people there is only one way to tackle the unmentionable but I believe there are many different approaches and one of them will click with you. It is simply finding out what is best for each person. Once we find the key we can unlock the problems that have puzzled you for ages. Music theory needs to be more than a requirement, it needs to be the way to really appreciate the music you are playing. Certain aspects can also lead to additional practical skills such as improvisation which can be very useful as well as very enjoyable. Whether you want to understand a particular aspect of music theory or If you struggle with music theory in general, then this is the class for you - why not give it a try?

This expands the instrument's capabilities and your playing skills, ensuring continuous progress and improvement. 👨🏻‍🏫 Upon request, the program also includes theoretical studies, which are presented in an accessible manner suitable for both beginners and experienced musicians. Exercises, pieces, and theoretical explanations are structured in a progressive order of difficulty.🔥 The theoretical program covers a range of topics, including guitar tuning, chord theory, scales and modes, finger picking techniques, strumming patterns, metronome practice, learning favorite songs, improvisation, harmony, melody, and rhythm theory.⚡️ Together, we'll embark on a musical journey tailored to your goals and aspirations, ensuring a fulfilling and enriching experience with the classical guitar.🔝☄️
