Ilya 和 Daria 是我遇到过的最好的钢琴老师之一,他们出自以完美技术和严苛基本功著称的-俄罗斯柴可夫斯基音乐学院,又系统的接受了欧美最好的钢琴教育,师从最优秀的钢琴大家,因此在现场聆听了他们的音乐会后,试了几节课,儿子便决定放弃掉跟随一位美国名师学习的机会,同时婉拒了原来所在音乐学校的丰厚奖学金挽留,成为他们音乐studio的一名新学员。现在八个多月过去了,我们越来越坚定的认为当初的选择是正确的,孩子基本功的提升迅速而扎实,指尖流出的音乐也日渐饱满,丰富,多彩。在最近的一些赛事中也展现出和以前的巨大不同及裁判的认可,但我相信这仅仅才是刚开始,两位老师的全力倾注,扎实和系统的方法与步骤,易懂且直接的授课风格,以及与琴童父母间随时高效的沟通,相信能有幸跟随他们学习的学员们的提升会更快更高。- Xinliang Liu
