At Berklee I studied a mixture of Performance, Songwriting and Music Business and took many other classes, such as: Ear Training & Sight Singing, Counterpoint, Conducting, Music History, Arrangement, etc. I also took part in songwriting and multiple music business clubs and had the honor to represent the college at various industry trips in Nashville and New York City.

I’m Liya! I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Professional Music from Berklee College Of Music. At Berklee I studied a mixture of Performance, Songwriting and Music Business and took many other classes, such as: Ear Training & Sight Singing, Counterpoint, Conducting, Music History, Arrangement, etc. I also took part in songwriting and multiple music business clubs and had the honor to represent the college at various industry trips in Nashville and New York City. I am also an active recording and performing artist, songwriter and I speak both English and Bulgarian fluently.

I have studied music theory, sight singing/reading and voice at both Berklee College Of Music and University of Massachusetts Boston. At UMass I received a classical training, whereas at Berklee I received a contemporary music education in those fields. Throughout my college years I have always excelled in my music theory courses and have been asked to help my peers by tutoring them in subjects such as music theory, solfege, counterpoint and have also offered voice lessons and beginning keyboard skills. I used to hold weekly meetings with my peers where I would help them with anything they didn't understand that was taught the previous week. Music is a different language so a good tutor is very important! The way I approach tutoring is seeing where the students' level is and breaking down the information, so they can understand it and going through that information as much as they need. I have a lot of theory, solfege, voice lesson and beginning piano books that are very helpful as well. Throughout my own studies I have found multiple ways to make music theory concepts more memorable and I love sharing those with students. I have tutored mainly peers and adults but also love teaching children. I believe that learning music is a wonderful thing, so I want to help you learn the theory behind your favorite song, and help you find your voice while encouraging a fun learning environment.

I am fluent in Bulgarian, as I was born there and have lived there for the bigger part of my childhood. I studied in Bulgaria for both primary and high school, where I graduated with high honors in Bulgarian literature. Even though I find the language easy because it is my mother tongue, I understand that it is a very complex language. However, I believe that I can make studying Bulgarian fun and can teach my students to read, write and speak in all Bulgarian tenses.

Great Teacher!

Liya doesn’t rush and takes her time to help you understand whatever concept you are learning! I would recommend Liya as a tutor to any music student!

Stephen, 1 lesson with Liya

great teacher!

Liya is a natural teacher, very engaged and enthusiastic. She knows her stuff too, and was able to give me lots of different approaches to finding a stronger voice. I've replayed the video of the lesson when I practice, and keep finding new levels of information. I've only had one lesson, and will definitely keep studying with Liya!

Daniel, 4 lessons with Liya

Excellent

Patient, knowledgeable. Great tutor, I would recommend Liya. Liya did a fantastic job explaining the material. She is knowledgeable and breaks down the lesson so you can understand it.

Alison, 3 lessons with Liya

1st lesson

Liya helped my daughter correct some of her physical technique and give her instruction on how to monitor her technique while singing. She also reviewed a song my daughter already knows and helped her to improve her technique on each phrase of the song. It was a successful first lesson and my daughter is looking forward to her next lesson. Thanks Liya!

Justin, 2 lessons with Liya

Awesome stuff!

Liya really helped me out and is continuing to help me break out of my shell and sing with confidence. She helped me understand what it means to be a singer, a great one. Thanks, Liya!

Samina, 7 lessons with Liya

Awesome

I had my first lesson today. We covered a lot. She is awesome I can’t wait to practice and learn more. She is very patient and she is very knowledgeable. I love how she breaks down everything so it was easy for me to keep up.

Great results every week

Every week I'm glad I chose Liya. She continues to challenge me when something gets difficult and push to get my desired results. Practice and use her guidance, and you'll see how much you can improve in just one lesson/one week. As always can't wait for the next one.

Incredible human! As kind as she is knowledgeable !

Liya came to my daughter's rescue when facing the confusion of Music Theory class! My daughter's classroom teacher held her class to a high standard (to prepare for AP Music Theory), but my daughter was a bit lost. Liya made the lessons understandable; and took away the stress and pressure and feelings of failure that my daughter was contending with. Thank you so much! You are amazing!!!

Third lesson

I had my third lesson today and all I can think is WOW! How have I not had a teacher (outside of school) sooner? I'm glad I waited though because Liya is who I was looking for. The small changes piece together to make the bigger picture. Liya is encouraging and strives to get the best out of you.

Solangi, 8 lessons with Liya

Yes! Liya is the right teacher for you.

Liya is the teacher I ended up picking after going through, searching, and reading the descriptions of many voice teachers on this and other platforms. I was waiting to see which one gave me the right feeling. I just had my second voice lesson with her and have seen major improvements. I know that with my own work/practice and her guidance, I'll be able to retain the information and meet any goal I set for myself. Its been a while since I've felt excited about something, which is very important during times like these. I can't wait for the next lesson. Thanks Liya!
