Hello! My name is Natasha and I am a professional musician and a singer. I entered the world of music with studying accordion at the age of 5. My next passion was playing guitar, piano and keyboard. I graduated The National Academy of Music in Sofia, Bulgaria where I specialized in Pop and Jazz department with guitar and piano as a second instrument. I was taking lessons of opera singing and staging of the voice and after that I specialised in Pop singing as well. During this time I was taking part of many concerts and competitions. At the age of 18 I was performing in a musical ,which was showcased on the Bulgarian national TV.
My life of performing artist started with live concerts on stage with Pop-Rock bands, as a lead singer and rhythm guitarist and also I have been playing and singing In club venues, music shows and live programs around Europe and the Middle East.
The last 14 years I am a performing musician and Musoc and Arts Teacher in Istanbul, Turkey, where I have the amazing chance to work with another professional musicians, singers and artists. I play accordion, guitar and piano and I sing as well. My repertoire is very wide and includes different styles and genres.
The world of music is a world of magic and in the process of getting knowledge and skills to play music instruments and sing, we all need somebody to guide and help us. When we find and chose the right teacher for us, we will be more motivated, patient and eager to discover this magical world.
My experience as a music teacher with more than 30 years of successful teaching and performing as a professional musician helped me to develop the best individual approach and method of teaching and to be the best choice for your Online Tutor.
If you want to learn how to play Piano/ Keyboard, Guitar, Accordion or Vocal technique and Music Theory I can help you achieve your goals faster.
The foundations of my lessons are:
Learning to read notes
- Understanding of the musical structure, composition, improvisation
- Learning different styles of music and different character and specifics of each music style
- Learn to play your favourite pieces of music - from Classical pieces to Contemporary music, Pop, Jazz and latest hits .
- The basic music theory knowledge that I teach my students are based on the harmony, rhythm, bass lines, feeling of swing, nice melody lines and musicality in each music piece.
When you feel confident with all your knowledge and you reach to the moment/level when you might be interested as well to create and compose your own music and to learn to improvise, you would already have the stable base, knowledge and ability that would give you the feeling of freedom and joy that music brings and will make you a part of this creative , fun and amazing process of playing an instrument ,singing and even composing your own music !
What they say about Natasha
We booked a trial online voice lesson with Natasha for my 8-year-old daughter. She is a little shy but loves to sing around the house and is very interested in learning more. Natasha was very patient and kid-friendly and made my niece feel super comfortable. She's been doing the vocal warmups Natasha previewed in the trial lesson non-stop since our lesson yesterday.
My daughter enjoys her online singing lessons with Natasha at Virtuo. She has a wealth of knowledge and connects well with kids
