Hi, I'm Marina and I've been teaching people how to play the piano almost as long as I've been playing it myself - which is pretty much my entire life.

I hold a Bachelor of Music degree and a Master of Fine Arts degree, both in Piano Performance. I enjoy making music and couldn't imagine my life without the wonderful experiences I've had as a performing artist.

I know that there are many people in the world who want to experience the joy of making music, so I decided to reach out and share my take on learning to play the piano. I love breaking down what may seem mysterious and complicated into simple, bite-sized chunks, so that anyone who is interested in putting in some practice time can enjoy the thrill of making the keys sing!
