Pianist

First Prize Winner of the Klaviermusik International Competition in Vilnius, Lithuania, and Second Prize winner of the Fourth International Piano Competition in Panama and the World Piano Competition 2011, pianist Alexandra Beliakovich performed as soloist with the Belarusian State Symphony, Belarusian State Chamber Orchestra, Cincinnatti and Manhattan School of Music Philharmonic Orchestras, and as recitalist in Belarus, China, Japan, Lithuania, Poland, Spain and the USA.

Born in Belarus, Ms. Beliakovich made her debut at the age of 10 with the Belarusian State Chamber Orchestra in the Bach D-Minor Concerto. She earned the President of the Republic of Belarus Youth Scholarship, the Ambrose Monell Foundation Scholarship and with additional prizes from the Vitebsk Piano Festival & Competition and Poland's Chopin International Piano Competition, Ms. Beliakovich came to the U.S. for advanced study. She won the Manhattan School of Music's 2007 Mieczyslaw Munz Scholarship Competition and MSM's annual Concerto Competition, which awarded her a New York debut with the MSM Philharmonia in the Gershwin Concerto in F.

Of Ms. Beliakovich's New York debut, NY Concert Review Editor Howard Aibel wrote: "She performed marvelously, capturing and reveling in the style of this Charleston jazz-inspired work as though she were a native American-born jazzer, instead of a foreign-born classical pianist. …She made it fun for herself as well as her audience."

Ms. Beliakovich has also performed as an organist and harpsichordist, and pursues an interest in composition.

From 2004 to2006, Alexandra Beliakovich was an Advanced Student of piano & organ under Jury Gildiuk at the Belarusian State Academy of Music. She has since earned her Masters degree at the Manhattan School of Music and is currently a full-scholarship Doctorate Degree candidate there as a student of Solomon Mikowsky.

Teaching Philosophy:

My goal as a piano teacher is to share my love for music and piano with my students. I love to teach and I try to find a very individual way of teaching every student. In lessons, I want to be able to set and meet musicianship goals with each student, and to further each student's musical talents and ability to express themselves through music. Lessons are designed to meet specific needs of each student. I work to encourage an atmosphere of learning, fun, discipline, and goal-setting throughout the lesson. During lessons, there may be technique practice, repertoire appropriate to the student's level of proficiency, theory, sight reading, and ear training. I also encouradge composition and improvisation to motivate and inspire my students.
