ABOUT THE TEACHER
In 2004, Ivan's friends asked him to give piano lessons to their 4-year-old son. It was his first step in teaching and it has helped him realize that he loves teaching piano lessons maybe even more than playing the piano. Within the next years, Ivan polished his professional skills as a teacher researching different piano programs and testing them in his piano studio. With his students, he tried different types of teaching methods known in Russia, Asia, Europe, and America.
