Testimonials

 

Mrs. Shimbaleva was my teacher for piano grades 9, 10 and ARCT, and I had a great experience for all of them. She's a patient teacher, and can quickly pick out which parts of my pieces I needed to work on. She was able to teach me in a way that suited my learning style, so I never had to struggle to understand a concept she was showing me. Also, when I had problems learning or memorizing a piece, she'd always have a couple tips to help me along my way. All in all, she's a great teacher I'd recommend to anyone.

Inna is very professional and very patient with my kids. They love going to her house for lessons (i couldn't say the same for my teacher when I was in lessons as a kid;)). We're so lucky to have found her!

I have been a piano student for more then 7 years and find Mrs. SHIMBALEVA highly professional. She is a pianist with excellent technique and ability to pass this skill to her students.

"Inna is one of the most amazing teachers we have ever experienced! She puts her whole soul into her work. Inna gives deep knowledge in practical music as well as in theory, and as a result most of her students get high grading !!! Inna also tries to give her students a lot of experience with performing in order to get comfortable on stage. Because she has a fantastic ability to exchange her knowledge with students, we have decided we would never change our teacher, even if her family decides to move on the other side of the earth !!!"

Elena Taustsiak

 

“Inna is an amazing pianist herself and her love and dedication to music is apparent in her teaching. She demonstrates a perfect balance of friendly and encouraging in her teaching style, and inspires my daughter to complete the ARCT studies through her own love of music. She maintains high standards and attention to detail. I would highly recommend Inna to any student fortunate enough to work with her.”
