Why I chose to be a piano teacher at Sage Music

To answer the question why I chose to be a piano teacher at Sage Music I have to go a little back in time.  And probably first start with how I know Jason, the owner.

I came to study in New York in 2004. there were very exiting and inspiring years for me. Coming from Sofia, Bulgaria, straight after I finished my bachelor degree in piano performance, everything in New York was new and exciting.  I started to work on my master’s degree at the Aaron Copland School of Music and that’s where I met Jason.  Through out the years we get to work on couple of projects together and collaborate with great players as well.

Being an active classical musician requires experience in more than one field. It’s a creative art which gives you the chance to work and getting to communicate with a lot of different people. You share on the stage. You share in the rehearsal room. You share in the recording studios. You share when you teach. That is what is expected from creative artist to do. And they are expected to do it best.

It is difficult, living in such hard but also interesting times, to fulfill all these expectations. It is also hard to cherish your passion without letting it die. Creating music, teaching and inspiring people who want to learn to play music is always a team work. And doesn’t only involve learning to play the instrument but also learning to know yourself and others better.

Sage Music is place where I see these things happening. And if I have to answer why I chose to be a piano teacher at sage, these are some  of the many reasons why.

At Sage, all the teachers are not only experienced tutors but experienced performers as well. Which I think it is very important for every music educator.

At Sage, there is the atmosphere  of a working team between the students and the teachers. There is not only a working atmosphere but also a creative atmosphere.

We get to create, teach and being thought which is what makes it being a protectional musician great experience.

Sage is a place where I feel this way.
