"Throughout many years of teaching, I had many students of different abilities, some were talented, others were not, and many in between. Part of them simply came into my life and left, while others became dear friends, colleagues, and soulmates. What united us was the love of music and the inability to live without it. My dear friend Olga, whose continuous dedication to music is so inspiring, is one of such people. I was lucky enough to visit the USA a few years ago and to hear Olga’s students play. As I attended some of her lessons, I witnessed how inspiring her teaching style is and how much love, dedication, and professionalism she brings to her class. I was shocked by the difficulty of pieces her young students play and by the level of mastery they play them with. To me, as Olga’s piano teacher, it was such an honor to witness Olga’s talent, success and never-ending love to what she does. If I could describe Olga with one word, it would be Love (with capital “L”). She is simply radiating love to people and to music.
