Ms. Bezkrovnaia's Teaching Philosophy

Music teaching is my passion. I believe that music should be part of everyone’s life and playing an instrument is as close as you can get to the miracle of sound making. Music is a vital part of spiritual and overall wellbeing. It is also a special activity which can connect friends and family without words. Making music together has always been a most intimate way to share deep emotions. I believe that playing an instrument helps you learn how to achieve goals, persevere and broadens your horizons. I'm looking forward to sharing a fun and magical music-making journey with each of my students.
