Music is one of the greatest gifts you can give. Your child will be exposed to a variety of piano repertoire, music theory, ear training, and performance opportunities. I am trained in the Russian technique, which helps relax muscles, joints, and tendons in order to avoid pain and inflammation in the wrists and forearms. My curriculum is designed to give my students a picture of music through piano lessons and to develop lasting musical skills. I have been teaching piano and music theory since 1987 in music schools and private homes in former Czechoslovakia and since 1998 in the USA. I began taking piano lessons when I was six years old. I studied a classical piano play as my major at the State Conservatory for six years with professor Ivan Miller who completed his studies in Saint Petersburg, Russia (Leningrad in the former Soviet Union). During this time, I performed solo in recitals, in school examinations, and in concerts for a public audience. I also traveled to compete in dual piano, or as an accompanist at other conservatories and schools in the country. I spent my last two years at the State Conservatory focusing on piano teaching as I observed piano teachers and gained experience by teaching at local music schools. During my university studies I performed in a chamber vocal-instrumental music ensemble, Camerata Comeniana. I joined university student choirs that performed in Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Ukraine. In 1993, I received Bachelor’s and Magister’s degrees in Musicology, with an endorsement in Music Education, from Comenius University in Slovakia.
