About Frida

I have over 25 years of professional experience in pedagogy as a Piano and Theory teacher at all levels and ages. My Russian background with a master's in music allows me to employ a traditional European method; however, I like to experiment with all approaches I know in order to adapt to students' learning styles. I also choose repertoire--whether it be classical, jazz, or pop--that reflects the interest of each student. I'm very warm and compassionate with my students--a skill that was built on my experiences as a preschool and elementary school music teacher.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Ear Training

I hold a master's degree in Music Theory and have over 25 years of a professional experience as a Theory/Piano teacher at conservatories. I tutor students of all levels and ages. I believe that everyone can be ear trained.

Hebrew

I hold master's degree in pedagogy and have over 25 years of teaching experience with students of all levels and ages in Israel and United States. My teaching method is unique - trough music. My music background helps me to achieve quick results in teaching language trough songs. I believe that this is the best way of learning any language. Using this method I learned two Languages myself- Hebrew and English.

Music Theory

I have taught music theory and piano privately and at conservatories for more than 25 years. I hold an undergraduate degree in piano performance and a masters degree in music theory. I teach students of all ages and provide individualized approaches, with respect to the students' ages, conducive to their cognitive and playing abilities. I believe that learning theory is crucial to playing an instrument well because theory provides an understanding of how sounds are put together and why certain patterns and forms work.

Piano

I have professionally taught piano both privately and at conservatories for more than 25 years. I hold a master's degree in music. I teach students of all ages and provide individualized approaches conducive to each student's playing ability and age. I employ a classical European tradition of teaching while modernizing certain aspects which I believe hinder my student's growth. Each student is able to learn a broad range of genres and focus on one or more in which he or she may develop an interest.

Russian

Russian is my native language. I was born in Russia, where I received my undergrad and master's degree in music. I have over 25 years of teaching experience and have taught students of all levels and ages in Israel and the United States. My music background helps me to achieve quick results in teaching language through songs. I believe that this can be an effective way of learning any language.

Sight Singing

I hold a master's degree in Choir Conducting, in which sight singing is regularly used.. I have more than 25 years of professional experience at conservatories. I use a facile approach to help students compare and understand various forms and melody patterns. The ability to recognize patterns makes sight singing easy to grasp and perform competently.
