“Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music.” Sergei Rachmaninoff
"...Undoubtedly, she is among the very top students of our institution, she is a very gifted, very reliable, determined and responsible student, who demonstrates remarkable progress, intelligence and enthusiasm. She is a great asset to our school. Tatsiana never fails to bring her best to every performance. She thrives on success and is determined to become the best pianist that she can be...” Dr. Alexander I Tutunov, NCTM, Professor of Piano - Artist in Residence, Graduate Coordinator, Music Southern Oregon University.
"Tatsiana, thank you for all the wonderful teaching you have given my daughters over the years. We are so lucky to have you in the valley. You have taught my daughters to love music and you are amazing at teaching the tools for joyful beautiful piano playing. We love watching your concerts! Your strong, graceful, musical playing is inspiring! Thank you for being such a great teacher! " Laurel Dryland, a parent of Mimi and Charlotte.
"I came to Tatsiana Asheichyk with some trepidation. I am in my late forties and was fearful that I had come crossed the threshold of "too old to learn playing the piano". While learning and/or playing the piano is not something that comes naturally to me, Tatsiana's patient and kind manner of teaching has allowed me to persevere. I am now in my third year of piano lessons. I enjoy learning, particularly since Tatsiana tailors the piano lessons for adults." Alma Rosa Alvarez, PhD, Professor of English at Southern Oregon University.
"My 8-year old daughter has been taking piano lessons with Tatsiana for the last two years, and we could not be happier. She's learned so much! Not only does Tatsiana work with her on how to read and play music, but she also works with our daughter on ear-training, which I wish I had done as a kid.
Aside from being a very capable teacher, Tatsiana is also very accommodating. Last spring, my daughter wanted to learn to play the theme music to a video game that she had been playing over the summer, so we found the music and brought it to one of her lessons. Video game theme music, clearly, is not part of any standard piano music repertoire, but Tatsiana was totally fine with it and, over the course of a few months, helped our daughter learn every note. And Tatsiana now regularly asks that our daughter find music that she wants to learn, which helps keep her interested.
Tatsiana's also gotten to know my daughter quite well. When I was excited at the prospect of purchasing a set lesson books that advanced more quickly than the previous set in order to push my daughter along, Tatsiana delicately suggested that we move my daughter along slowly for the time being, because she observed my daughter getting frustrated easily when she didn't learn something right away. "Oh! You're absolutely right! Heh, I should have thought of that..."
What does my daughter think? She says that Tatsiana is "very good with correction," which apparently means that "she does it very nicely." My daughter always smiles after a piano lesson with Tatsiana--and not because it's over, but because she's enjoyed it. Thanks, Tatsiana!" Eping Hung, the father of Natalie
