Mark Demidovich started studying piano at age 7 and has been teaching others to play for more than 12 years.
A native of Kostroma, Russia, who lives in Downtown Hollywood, Mark emigrated to the U.S. in 2011 to continue his education, which included The Juilliard School in New York City, one of the world's leading music schools. He has won many international music competitions, performed numerous solo recitals, and appeared as a guest soloist with orchestras in Russia, Bulgaria, Sweden and the U.S., where venues included the White House, Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Lincoln Center.
Despite all of his accomplishments, Mark had a dream that went unfulfilled - until now.
"From the moment I started teaching, it was always my dream to have my own music school," he said. "I want to have an impact on as many people as I can, to bring music into their lives, and having my own school allows me to do that."
Mark has taught students ranging in age from 4 to 75. And during this time, he honed his successful student-centered teaching method that combines the traditional method of learning an instrument with behavioral psychology and contemporary studies on how people learn.
