"Found it very inspiring . . came away full of new ideas"
". . . the posture and development of the various parts of the fingers will greatly improve technique and tone."
Shiona Grant, Piano Teacher
"GéNIA is one of the most exciting, dynamic and daring pianists I've met in recent years. Her approach to the development of piano technique and personal development are both highly effective and original, combining the Russian tradition with a modern musical outlook. I recommend the Piano-Yoga® course most highly."
Douglas Finch, Professor of Piano and Composition, Trinity College of Music, London
"Piano-Yoga® is a unique method that really transforms fingers and hands. If followed correctly hands feel much bigger, and people can play a much wider repertoire. Once it is available I would recommend that all my students use it."
Richard Harris, piano teacher, composer, arranger and author
"Piano-Yoga® helped me release tension, and simply concentrate on playing the piano. GéNIA's approach to tuition makes practice a pleasure."
Jamie Telford, composer
"My ten year-old son had been studying the piano for two years before he started a weekly lesson with GéNIA. After only six weeks his performance was transformed. A few weeks later he gave a short recital at his school and received an unprecedented standing ovation from staff and pupils."
Max Gammon, private medical consultant
"When using GéNIA's Piano-Yoga® the piano, musical score, and I become one entity. A oneness that is greatly challenging to find elsewhere in our everyday lives...it provides me with a moment’s peace in an otherwise rapidly moving modern world."
Zuzia Wieczorek, BA undergraduate,
School of Oriental and African Studies, London
"My students are performing soon and I would love to know a list of the "good and bad" food choices for performance. Also please let me know when your book comes out. I loved your presentation. Everything made so much sense. Thanks again."
Denise Apodaca, piano teacher, USA
"In supporting and participating in GéNIA's masterclasses I can vouchsafe for her passion and commitment to piano teaching and performance at the highest level. GéNIA is an outstanding and versatile musician with a warm engaging personality. As a coach, her sense of humour and enthusiasm encourages participation and response inspiring confidence at whatever stage of playing. Allowing students to feel relaxed is part of her magic along with focus and imaginative interpretation; bringing out the best in them with consummate patience and skill."
Simon Markson, Managing Director of Markson Pianos
"I have been a visiting student at the Guildhall School of Music for many years and one of my piano teachers after the Guildhall was a pupil of Vlado Perlmuter; more recently I have been studying with some outstanding cello teachers. However GéNIA is absolutely the finest teacher of any musical instrument I have encountered in 60 years. GéNIA makes absolutely clear the hierarchical relationship between mental processes, bodily action and artistic effect. Her strong interest in Yoga over recent years has added a further dimension to her ability to inspire pupils through a deeper understanding of how sound is controlled, freely and without pain or strain, at the keyboard."
