Evelina works with students of all ages, from children as young as 2 years of age and beyond. Her original approach to teaching allows her pupils to start playing their favourite tunes from their very first lessons. Evelina adroitly adapts her methods (fusing elements of the Suzuki and Dalcroze piano schools) and teaching plans to help every student in the most expedient manner, and can prepare children and teenagers for both all ABRSM examinations or live performances, whilst providing consummate instruction in those assessments and preparations mandated for entry into the foremost schools of music and their scholarship programmes
Jazz, classical, folk and popular genres are all subtly bound together in her lessons, providing each student with a foundation of rare parallel that cannot but help to inspire them to reach beyond their greatest horizons.
The programme of musical instruction may include the following:
Determining ability and musical aptitude – rhythm, aural, pitch / preparation of a plan for musical study (elementary to advanced level);
Assistance in choosing a programme and preparation towards assessment for any grade of ABRSM examination;
Musical aptitude tests;
Master-classes for students of all levels;
Preparation for entrance examinations to leading music colleges;
Production of music projects;
Performance coaching and stage confidence development, including determination of individual abilities for composition and improvisation;
Elevation of personal performance style.
Yet beyond this, Evelina’s mentorship may also be tailored to help facilitate a given student’s aspirations within the professional music arena. This particular aspect of mentorship would also focus upon development of the following cardinal qualities:
Assessment of music career potential;
Parental coaching to assist with their children’s musical studies;
Selection of dedicated programmes and the development of a bespoke teaching plan;
Live Concert support – organisation, PR and marketing advice.
