Elina Nostrant has been teaching since 1988.

Her students are 1st Prise Winners at Competitions, and have won Award Certificates through various Music organisations.

She also served as a judge for piano events.


Elina Nostrant provides the highest quality of private piano instruction to her students. Her goal is not only to teach her students to play piano but through the skills of piano playing to recognize beauty, to be kind, intelligent, spiritually rich, and to be a better human being and fill our society with culture, morals of the highest calibre, inspiration, and love. 


    She bases the teaching process strictly on individual needs.  Every student is being  provided with a different type and/or style of instruction according to their age, character, interests, and knowledge base.  Musical preferences are incorporated into lessons because students are more likely to practice the music that truly inspires them.


She provides a solid foundation in piano technique and musicianship so that students are empowered to explore any kind of music. Igniting the imagination of students, and providing them with the tools to realize their highest potential is the basis of our teaching process which is absolutely different with each student because we are all unique. She is making the learning process an interesting and enjoyable experience for both student and teacher.  


She provides a friendly and comfortable atmosphere where teacher and student alike are partners in the learning process.  Together they make music come alive from the script and find the best and easiest way to do so. 


-30 years of teaching experience.
-Warm and comfortable atmosphere of lessons
