Since starting to teach in the UK, I have helped over 40 students attain music scholarships and my students consistently achieve excellent results in their music exams – both with ABRSM and Trinity – all the way through to diploma level as well and music competitions, music festivals and music university preparation. I also offer online music theory classes on Zoom or in person.

I was inspired to start sharing my experience and understanding of music by my mother (also a violin, viola and piano teacher!). She always made them laugh and enjoy music while still imparting valuable knowledge with everything she said. She also took the time to organise recitals for them which I feel is very important as well and regularly organise concerts for my students to perform in.

I was born in Canada and first started playing violin at age five as part of a musical family. Both my father and grandfather come from strong Hungarian traditions of violin playing going back to Jenö Hubay. At the age of just sixteen, I was accepted into the professional performance diploma programme at the renowned Music University of Vienna, where I received training with Prof. Jan Pospichal (concertmaster of the Vienna Symphony) and graduated with first class honours in 2007.

Extensive solo and orchestra performances throughout Germany, Austria, Italy, China, Japan, Canada and many other countries, as well as solo electric violin tours, have provided me with a wealth of experience as a versatile soloist and chamber musician. Having also studied with György Pauk (Royal Academy of Music), Gyula Stuller (Haute Ecole de Musique, Lausanne) and Marina Sorokova has given me a broad technical and musical background.

In 2012, I also completed a MA in Music Industry Management in London to complement my previous music studies, having discovered a strong interest in the managerial aspect of music. However, throughout my studies and performances I have always loved teaching and now teach at the North London Conservatoire, where I also enjoy my role of organising over 200 concerts per year for students. I also teach in schools throughout London and the South East, having lived in Sutton, Haywards Heath, and now Eastbourne over the past 10 years. I continue to enjoy performing both with my acoustic and electric violin in concerts, and always try to find some time for designing and sewing clothes, reading and cooking.

Cadenza Tuition Piano Lessons

07727120396 – info@cadenzatuition.co.uk

At Cadenza Tuition we do things a little differently to traditional piano lessons. Why? Because I became dissatisfied by how things were. Students were progressing slowly and were asking the same questions week in week out. They felt anxious at the piano and gave up easily. Not only this, but parents felt like they were nagging them constantly about practising. With 3 children of my own, I got it! I dreamt of creating a way I could actually relieve parents of this pressure, and still allow kids to progress. Impossible right? No. And our studio is the proof.

Becca has a first class BA (Hons) Music and a PGCE in Music (11-18) and has had experience teaching 1-1, group and classroom music since 2010. She is DBS checked and is a member of the ISM.

Lessons take place in our home studio in Hunloke Avenue, Eastbourne.

I have been teaching piano both pratical and theory for over thirty years. I prepare students for ABRSM exams with 100% pass rate including merits and distinctions. Each student has a structured learning plan in preparation for exams. I also teach older students who want to learn piano as a hobby. I have a dedicated music studio in my house but can also teach students in their own homes if preferred. I have recently moved to Hailsham from the Gatwick area and you can read my reviews below.

“Maryna began teaching my eldest daughter since she was 6 years old which was 4 years ago, and she recently took both her grade 3 theory and practical. She a wonderfully upbeat generous lady who has become like a member of the family. She is patient, encouraging and really knows how to keep the momentum going whatever humor your child is in. My daughter loves having her as her piano teacher and my younger child begged Maryna to teach her from the age of 2. Maryna is honest, trustworthy and kind and always looks to encourage my children and find something good and praiseworthy in each lesson. One in a million.”

“A fantastic teacher. Maryna is an inspirational teacher who really cares about the students she teaches. My son especially has responded amazingly well to her teaching and has made fantastic progress in the piano.”
