    About MeContact Me
    Introduction
    My name is Dora Zlatkin and I 've been teaching piano for more than 30 years (back in Russia for 10 years and here, in USA, for 23 years). Teaching is my passion and I'd like to do it as long as I can. I teach classical piano for children and adults, from beginner level to advanced. My students participate in the studio formal and informal recitals (usually three times a year), as well as in various festivals/auditions through the local music organization. Many of them have got the highest ratings in their piano performance and in theory. I also enjoy to perform myself, especially for retirement communities, in schools, senior centers, etc.

    My Teaching Background
    I've graduated from Glinka Music College in Minsk, Belarus with BM in Piano Performance and from Minsk State Conservatory with MM in Piano Performance and Education.
    Upon coming to the USA, I have attended various educational classes, workshops and conferences. I have completed the National Certification in 2003.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    As a piano teacher with over thirty years of experience, I strongly believe that there is no "bad", or "unmusical" students, but rather uncapable instructors who cannot get to the core of a student's musical responsiveness.
    Every child possesses an inner sense of musicality, harmony and rhythm in more or less developed form, and our role as music educators is to "unlock" this important ability and help that child to begin wonderful musical journey.

    Rates And Availability
    I teach in my home studio, I try to keep my teaching hours flexible as much as possible. On occasion might be willing to come to the student' home, but prefer to teach at my studio. The 30 minute lesson per month is $85.
