Studio Life

When I think about a child’s musical development, I always recall the words of the legendary piano teacher, Anna Artobolevskaya. She insisted that children develop more effectively when the polishing of the piece does not become a priority. Accordingly, she advised students to spend much of their time concentrating on general music education and to invest in the incorporation of a wide repertoire. Embracing her beliefs, I was inspired to conduct monthly concert-lectures with the help of my students. Our concerts are combination of musical performance and verbal presentation that are meant to reveal information about musical styles and genres, historical events, and composers’ lives. These concerts inspire my students to work with great enthusiasm and expand their musical horizons.

X-mas concert dedicated to presentation of the new book by Rada Bukhman


The Magic Link includes music scores for all 24 pieces of P.I. Tchaikovsky’s Children’s Album and 18 selected pieces from R. Schumann’s Album for the Young. While providing excellent Romantic repertoire, its scope is more far-reaching than conventional sheet music publications. Formatted as a lively dialogue between a teacher and her students, The Magic Link provides essential instructional material that teachers can use with their students.

While being a completely standalone publication, The Magic Link employs the best traditions of celebrated Russian teaching methods to exhaustively explore the children’s albums that Rada Bukhman also addresses in "Discovering Color behind the Keys: The Essence of the Russian School of Piano Playing." As such, The Magic Link can also be seen as an indirect sequel to this landmark publication
