Potential students must have good sense of rhythm and tonality, perhaps even gifted. My methods are advanced and I require a piano at home for practice. What you've heard about Russian teachers is true, we produce advanced playing ability with our students.

Feel free to reach out for an interview through the form below or calling me directly.

I'm honored to have my story included in 88 MORE Ways Music Can Change Your Life which was released on New Year's Day 2021.

"88 MORE Ways" features over 100 new inspirational music stories and quotes by musicians and non-musicians from around the world. Instinctively, we all know the power of music, but sometimes we can't help taking it for granted.

"I'd like to thank the parents! I'm truly grateful for the opportunity to get to know your children and to work with them each and every week. They continue to amaze me with their intelligence, energy and sense of humor. Thank you for recognizing the value of music in the life of a child. Thank you for the time you invest in supporting your child at home. And, thank you for including me as a part of your child's musical education." ~ Luba

**  2021 - 5 wk months - JanuaryAprilJulyOctober and December may have an extra week's lesson increase in cost.

My schedule is currently full (33 students). Click here to contact me directly. For younger beginning students I strongly suggest two lessons per week (@$30 instead of $35) in order for them to develop properly.

I'm thankful for the recognition I recently received and the beautiful award. It is an honor to be recognized for the work that I so love to do.

Due to my student load increasing I can no longer drive to student homes. New students will need to come to my home studio. I can serve more students effectively that way.

I you would like to leave a review, that would be really nice. Please click here.
