Roots and Method
“Dear teachers, do not start with the position of the hand, but start with the condition of mind” — J.Hofmann
In our piano lessons in Manhattan we use a unique Russian method of piano instruction in which we provide stories and games for younger students and metaphors for adults in order to help them understand the meaning of music. We start with the music itself: no lesson book, no mechanical exercises. The music we choose is colorful, drawn from the rich traditions of folkloric music from all over the world, or original music from great composers.
