About Me

My name is Marina Kirova and I am 35 years old. I started playing the piano back in 1991. In the following years to come I would further improve my skills, later only to be accepted at the Vienna Conservatory. Today, I hold a Master of Music degree in Piano performance.
It was in Vienna where I started to teach and since 2005 have been giving lessons to children and adults. In recent years, I hold my classes in Sofia, both in English and German with optional home visits.

My teaching methods were greatly improved by the practice I did complete at the National Musical School “Lubomir Pipkov”, where I taught piano and music theory to children and, at the same time I was helping senior students with their obligatory piano exam preparations at the New Bulgarian University.

Some of my teaching methods have been developed with the unique works of Renate Klöppel, Kurt Hermann, Gerhard Mantel, Rudolf Kratzert and others, great persons I was lucky enough to have met during my studies in Vienna. Participating in the Austrian Modern Music Society proved an essential contribution to my experience as an educator.

I strive to stay up to date with the latest tendencies and methods. In my teaching, I use a focused approach, custom tailored to the individual student, incorporating factors, such as age, ambition and advancement.

I have developed special methods, where by the use of fun to play games, children would learn imperceptibly. My experience extends from teaching to young children (the youngest being just 3 years old!) to adults in sixty. The culmination of my student`s learning path comes with the concerts I organize during the year where they are able to play in front of public.

My ultimate goal is to teach love for the music and playing for fun, through care, patience and passion.
