ABOUT US

We are a private piano studio in Brentwood (westside Los Angeles). We offer individual piano lessons in our studio or at your home. A husband-and-wife duo pianists from Bulgaria, our methods of teaching combine European and American school of piano. Our main goal is to foster love of music and piano in all of our students. We are patient and believe in making the music learning experience enjoyable and yet enriching at the same time. Besides laying down a solid music foundation, we also encourage our students to play music they love to play – Classical, Film, Broadway, Latin, Christian and Pop/Rock. We tailor each lesson to meet our students’ diverse needs and try to capture their interest and imagination. Most importantly, we always maintain a positive learning atmosphere where every student feels special, cared for and successful. You'll often see us cracking a joke and just have fun at the piano...

We are members of Music Teacher's Association of California (MTAC). Our students have won numerous awards at youth piano competitions in California; a lot of them successfully complete the MTAC state certification test (Certificate of Merit) on a yearly basis.
