Personal Statement

I am a classically trained guitarist and teacher with 20 years of experience teaching music.

I attended children’s music school in former Soviet Union and later continued my studies for B.Mus at Tel Aviv Music Academy in Israel.

I moved to USA in 2003 and have been living and teaching in Orange County, CA since then.

I specialize in classical (aka Spanish or nylon string) guitar, but also teach acoustic/electric as well as beginning piano.

I prepare my students of school age for RCM (Royal Conservatory of Music) music examinations , they also have a chance to perform in recitals 1-2 times a year.

About half of my students are adults-working professionals and seniors, it’s never too late…

Our lessons would also include music theory (optional though), so you will have better understanding of music that you play, we’ll learn chords, of course, I always encourage my students to compose, it develops your creativity.
