About the Instructor
Alena Masliukova graduated with honors from the Belarusian Academy of Music in 1996. In 1997 she received her Master of Arts Degree after completing the internship in the Chamber Music class.
For the next 10 years, she had been working at the Belarusian Academy of Music at the vocal department as an accompanist in the class of People's Artist of the USSR T.N. Nizhnikova. She was combining the main work activity of the accompanist in the vocal department with pedagogical, teaching the students of the Academy at the department of Chamber music, as well as teaching piano at a music school in Minsk.
Since 2007 Alena lived and worked in Bahrain. She continued her teaching career at the Russian music school "Life in Music" in Bahrain, where her student took 1st place in the regional Chopin competition in 2010. Since 2015 Alena has been working in Dubai (UAE) as a piano teacher. In 2019, her student took 2nd place in the Emirates Peace Music Competition.
Alena believes that all children, without exception, should be engaged in music, no matter if they have a talent for it or not, since in childhood, everything is amenable to development, both hearing, and memory. Learning to play an instrument contributes to the development of motor skills and coordination of fingers, develops polyphonic thinking: when it is necessary to simultaneously perform several functions - read, and play an instrument, and hear another performer playing. It also subsequently contributes to the formation of artistic taste, the development of artistic skills, the ability to empathize and feel, and expands knowledge of the history of the art of each era. While previously it was considered accessible only to a privileged class in prestigious homes, now the opportunity to learn music is spreading everywhere, and this must be appreciated and has to be used for the benefit of all children.
