KLM Piano Studio
Piano teacher with years of experience teaching students since 1987 in music schools and homes in Europe and USA. During my studies at a state conservatory I performed in recitals and competitions in dual piano or as an accompanist and with a chamber music ensemble during university studies. I joined university students in choirs that performed in Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary and Ukraine. Currently I am offering individual private lessons in my home or student's. Beginners welcome! Russian technique trained - learn hand/wrist/forearm relaxation movements that prevent tension, pain and injuries, especially in a wrist which is common among pianists practicing several hours a day .Patient, understanding and encouraging. I am a Steinway Educational Partner and I continue training through piano workshops. I emphasize classical music teaching piano methods like Alfred, Faber, Hal Leonard and Bastien. My students can also learn their favorite folk, movie and pop songs and I provide simple arrangment if needed. I encourage students to perform their own compositions at our recitals. My goal is to instill an appreciation and enjoyment of music in every student. I am easy- going, patient and motivating - rewarding younger students with prices. I like to share my love for music and watching students’ progress in learning to play piano. Seeing their smiles is the best reward for my teaching efforts.
