Sharpen your piano practice with Daria 

Daria is constantly improving her methodology, tailoring it to special needs. Always respecting the talent and creativity of her students. She makes technique into an interesting game and helps connect to music in a deeper level. She uses innovative tools and out-of-the-box solutions, especially with the young ones: you can drum, dance and integrate movement and meditation in your lessons.

- Piano lessons for beginners* (children): Introducing auric training, rhythm and music structures while getting acquainted with the keyboard. Discover melodies and sounds in a playful way. Structured lessons with flexible content adapted to the student’s needs.

*Daria doesn't accept adult beginners. The lessons only can start when there is an instrument (keyboard or piano) at home.

- Piano lessons for young talents: Advance in small steps towards your pianism. Selected pieces to train and understand musical language and the keyboard while developing technique in an effective way. Preparation for educational programs (conservatorium, talentklas, music minors).

- Piano lessons for seasoned musicians: Develop your own repertoire that serves your purpose. Are you looking for an alternative way of learning? Do you feel like you plateaued in your technique? Do you want tools to create your own practice? This is your course.

Languages: English, Spanish and Russian.
