Russian technique trained pianist teaching piano classes
I am trained in Russian technique using relaxation movements that prevent painful cramps in wrist and forearm. I have been teaching primarily children from age 4 in music schools and homes since 1987. I like to motivate them by letting them choose their favorites, like songs from Disney movies or some other popular songs. I am very patient and encouraging. I am happy when I see love for music growing in hearts of students.
About Katarina L.

I attended six years at State Conservatory and graduated with Magister degree from Comenius University in former Czechoslovakia. I performed during my college years with a chamber vocal-instrumental ensemble. I started teaching piano and music theory in 1987 at a music school and later I was giving piano lessons at private homes in Slovakia. In USA I traveled to homes to teach piano for several years. Currently I am a substitute piano and voice teacher at a local music/arts school.

Ms. Katarina is a gifted instructor. She manages to wrangle my 5 year old's attention and teach her something beautiful every week. It is a pleasure being welcome in her home and hearing the patience and praise she gives my daughter. She has recitals for all her students and the first one I attended happened this past weekend. It was a gracious and inspiring moment for this proud dad to witness and for my daughter to have. Absolutely nothing but the highest marks for Ms. Katarina.

I appreciate her flexible schedule and accommodating both in-person and online lessons. She assigns weekly theory and hands-on practice. In the last 2.5 years, my eight-year-old son has been making a steady progress.
