<p>I have a master's degree in piano performing and pedagogy from the college of music, Bucharest, Romania.<br /> <br /> My piano teachers were Florica Musicescu's pupils, the teacher of legendary pianist Dinu Lipatti.<br /> <br /> I taught piano at the school of music is Bucharest for 11 years. In parallel I played piano in many recitals both solo and in duos and, in addition, I made recordings for Romanian radio and TV stations.<br /> <br /> The next 11 years I taught piano at the conservatory Kfar Saba, Israel.<br /> <br /> At that time I also worked as an accompanist to other performers (violin, clarinet, canto).<br /> <br /> In Austin I taught piano at International School of Austin and Oakmont School for six years.<br /> <br /> In addition, recently I have worked with students to understand concepts connecting music and wider topics such as, &quot;Classical music and national flavor music in American and Foreign films&quot;, &quot;Opera music from famous films&quot;, and &quot;Parallels between Mozart and Chopin&quot;.<br /> <br /> During these years, I continued my professional development, participating in master classes and teacher's programs such as the TCU/Van Cliburn Institute in Ft. Worth.<br /> <br /> I teach at my home or at the student's home, preferably central or south-west Austin.<br /> <br /> My method is the traditional one taught in New York, Paris and Tel Aviv.<br /> <br /> I teach piano together with basics of theory, harmony, and history of music.<br /> <br /> My goal is to make the student understand and love the music language, to develop good mechanical skills, concentration, imagination and personality.<br /> <br /> I teach students starting at age six to adults.<br /> <br /> I recommend 30 minutes twice a week for beginners, one hour for intermediate and two hours for advanced students.</p>
