When it comes to teaching children, I treat them as individuals, which allows them to co-create their learning process. This gives me much joy because I am able to actively facilitate, yet act responsively to their learning process.
My main focus includes theory, technique and sight reading. Keeping these themes in mind, my students are able to achieve great success. I give private lessons at Music Masters in Scottsdale and at my home studio in Chandler, Arizona.
"Ms. Luba is an exceptional teacher and a lovely person. She has been teaching my six-year-old daughter for six months and they have progressed quickly and smoothly. My daughter enjoys practicing (!!!), is proud of her progress and is eager for her lesson each week. I am so grateful for the enormously positive experience my daughter is having and highly recommend Ms. Luba!" Sasha G.
"Luba is a fantastic teacher. She is nice but firm, very focused on technique and wants to make sure our kids are making progress, but also liking piano lessons. Kids are enjoying and looking forward to their lessons." Katya B.
"Our son has been learning piano from Luba for the past few years. Although we moved out of the Phoenix area, we were very clear in continuing with Luba through Skype . Luba has been extremely encouraging and very patient with kids. We are very pleased with our son’s progress. Luba manages to have the right combination of talent, kindness, encouragement and strictness. She’s obviously extremely qualified and talented, but also knows how to teach effectively. Many times she wants you to bring the right musical nuances of power and subtleness so that the student derives the musical experience. Through this process, I have seen that my son starts to implement them and developed more interest in piano.
"In every class, she watches his hand techniques and playing style and points out all the subtle nuances in the music, applauds him, challenges him and encourages him to practice more. Overall we feel that she is an extremely well qualified and a great teacher. Sub and Raji"
