I constantly and tirelessly work on true musicianship through developing unsurpassed technical skills in my students. This allows them to successfully embark on pieces with any technical and musical challenges. I motivate my students by demonstrating them an efficient and fruitful practicing techniques during lessons, so they know how to practice on their own. I focus students' attention on creating beautiful sound, tone, perfect rhythm and timing from the very beginning. This way they know how a piece of music ought to sound, and start working on achieving flawless performance from the very beginning of the learning process. It makes learning and music-making process an enjoyable, pleasant, effortless, and relaxing experience. In addition to this, my advantageous and unique approach rests on me being a performing artist with extensive repertoire.
