'It's never too late to make your dream of playing the piano come true!'
Welcome to the Piano-Yoga® studio in London!
I hope that you enjoy browsing through this website.
Our practice welcomes beginners, intermediate and advanced-level students of all ages and backgrounds. Started out of pure necessity to create a method that would enable me to develop and improve my own technique, Piano-Yoga® has undergone a series of transformations, currently evolving not only as a unique piano technique, but also as a lifestyle philosophy and well-being discipline. It is designed especially for musicians, whether professional or amateur players, even providing a special training for children as the method embraces the needs of everyone who is attempting to learn this beautiful instrument and aims to create an holistic approach to piano education.
The secret of Piano-Yoga® lies in combining traditional piano tuition with yogic approach to training the body and mind, which creates a correct mindset and a feeling of well-being, that are essential for learning an instrument, and especially, piano.
Piano-Yoga® main teaching principles:
- To teach the student to learn the piano to his/her higher ability
- To fully support the individuality of the student
- To develop a strong sense of self-confidence in each student
- To help the student think and feel like an independent & creative musician
- To pay significant attention to the whole body-mind process
- To develop a positive attitude towards the learning process
- To teach the student well-being practices that he/she can use on daily basis
I also apply the same teaching philosophy to children and young people. Amongst my students are recipients of many music scholarships and awards that include The Westminster School Music Scholarship, Camden School for Girls Music Scholarship, prize winners at the North London Festival, the Windsor Festival, The Dulwich Festival, The Watford Festival, the Around the Globe Piano Music Festival, the West London Annual Pianoforte Festival, the Eton Honorary Music Exhibition award and The Westminster School Competitions, to name a few. My practice has a successful track record of graded exams at Associated Board and Trinity Guildhall Boards with levels ranging from Grade 1 to the Performance Certificate and Teaching Diplomas.
