I have a B.A.F. in piano performance and music Ed (Hokkaido Gakugei University, Japan) and an M.F.A. in music (Penn State University). I have given recitals solo and ensemble work in Japan, Canada and in the State College area as well as seeking out professional development opportunities throughout the country (e.g. Teachers program at the TCU/Cliburn Piano Institute since 1998). I have taught piano for over 35 years in State College to students of all ages and levels, from 6 yrs old to graduate students and to retirees. I teach my students how to read music, to master the techniques of playing, to play with heart, to enjoy music, and to be disciplined. My motto has been to grow together with each student.
Victoria Petrosky (piano, music theory, solfege, accompaniment)
Victoria Petrosky (piano, music theory, solfege, accompaniment) was trained as a child at The Moscow Children's Music School #36, with her beloved piano teacher who was a student of Vladimir Sofronitsky. Victoria is a graduate of the College of Music of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory , with a B.A. in music theory, and of Gnessin's Russian Academy of Music in Moscow, where she obtained a Master 's degree in music theory and piano pedagogy. At the Gnessin Academy Victoria studied piano performance with Galina Turkina (of the famed Turkiny piano duo). Victoria has been teaching for over twenty years, first at the Moscow Children's Music School and later at the Main Line Music Academy near Philadelphia and the Music Academy in State College. She has been active as an accompanist, including the Bolshoi Theater Choreography College in Moscow, and church and concert choirs in State College. Victoria teaches piano to students of all ages and levels.
Steven Herbert Smith recently retired as professor emeritus from the Penn State piano faculty. He has performed in recitals, master classes, lecture recitals, concertos and chamber music throughout the world. Locally he has appeared frequently as soloist with the Nittany Valley Symphony (including a performance forthcoming in March 2017) as well as in recitals at PSU. He was president of the Pennsylvania Music Teachers Association (PMTA) for 2013-2015, and his PSU students were frequent prizewinners in MTNA/PMTA competitions and national competitions of the American Matthay Association, as well as Penn State events.
I have taught beginning and intermediate level piano students of all ages for over 25 years in State College. My goal for my music students is for them to build a foundation of skills, knowledge, habits, attitudes and artistry that they will use in music-making now and for the rest of their lives. All students are taught through a variety of activities such as private lessons, ensembles, written activities, informal performances, group lessons and recitals. I have experience and a special interest in teaching students with various developmental and learning issues. I am a pediatric nurse currently working in public schools and pediatric home care settings.
