Our goal is to help you reach your full potential
Mr. Ozolins and Ms. Young base their teaching on the Russian method, which emphasizes ability to read music, repertoire variety, and the continuing progress of a student. Mr. Ozolins and Ms. Young develop individual lesson plans for each student according to their needs, abilities, and interests based on a variety of piano methods. Students are introduced to a wide range of repertoire and are presented with options to choose the pieces they enjoy the most. For beginning piano students, the emphasis is on learning music notation, rhythm, and hand position. Intermediate students are encouraged to develop proper technique, understanding of musical styles, and repertoire.
Mr. Ozolins and Ms. Young strongly support performance opportunities, including studio class, talent shows at school, solo and ensemble, and independent piano competitions and festivals. They have four private studio recitals throughout the year in which students are strongly encouraged to perform. The recitals take place at a local church.
“Dr. Rudolf Ozolins has taught our two children since they were 4 and 3 years old respectively. He is an exceptional teacher who instills confidence in his students through positive reinforcement, constructive feedback, a systematic, disciplined approach and most of all, the gift pf recurring recitals organized 1-2 months by Dr. Ozolins and his wife Alayna Young, also an accomplished musician.”
“Rudolf and Alayna have been tremendous piano instructors for our three children over the years. Rudolf was recommended to us by another family almost four years ago, and we have consistently had lessons since then. Both Rudolf and Alayna are extremely patient and have a teaching demeanor that both motivates and challenges my children to their very best.”
“We have been amazed at what our 5 year old has learned in such a short period of time with Dr. Ozolins. She is learning a new song nearly every week, and plays with proper technique. What’s more is that she loves going for her lessons each week and truly enjoys the time she spends with him. She also looks forward to playing in the recitals, which are full of proud family members. ”
“Rudolf is an awesome piano teacher, He has been teaching piano for the past 4 years to my children. They continue to enjoy the lessons primarily due to his patient, kind, cheerful and encouraging ways with children, Rudolf is very accomplished and is passionate about classical music. He matches music with student interests and schedules them for quarterly recitals. ”
“Dr. Ozolins has been teaching my children piano for 8 years now! Rudolf is getting the best out of all my kids – even my middle son, who gets frustrated easily. Dr. Ozolins is patient with him, finds just the right piece of music to help him progress and sound more talented than he probably is at this point, and has lots of tricks up his sleeve pedagogically”
