I am currently working on my PhD thesis; specifically interested in performance styles of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. ----------- Besides my educational background, I am a competent piano teacher with more than 10 years of experience. I have taught piano to amateurs and professionals coming in wide range of interests, starting from 5 up to 50 years of age. I have successfully prepared students for entrance exams of conservatories and helped students get certificates from ABRSM exams.
