I am happy and honored to receive this award- the recognition of my efforts in guiding young talents through an interesting,exciting,  but very challenging journey of piano playing. It requires so much patience, time, energy, concentration and devotion from student, parents and teacher, that not everyone is capable to reach the point where those efforts reflect in awards at international piano competitions. I am very grateful for my students and their parents for being so devoted, curious about depth of their talent and eager to explore how far they can go through hard work, consistency and patience.

Congratulations to all of us!
