Our Teachers

Mastery at the piano (or any instrument) is so much more than learning to press the right keys at the right time.  Music is about expressing and sharing human emotions and feelings.  For this reason, students are taught the importance of making a piece of music truly sound like a work of art.

Our teaching style is filled with a strong sense of dedication and commitment to students.  We firmly believe in the benefits of music study for all individuals, regardless of age and ability.  Piano study develops not only a lifelong appreciation and love for music, but also important life skills including  creativity,  concentration,  dedication,  diligence, and perseverance.

The teaching philosophy of Sasensky School of Piano is founded on the belief that good musical education comes not just from instilling strong musical and technical fundamentals in students, but also from fostering a true appreciation for the arts. At Sasensky School of Piano, we believe in the power of music — music that builds students’ self-esteem and self-discipline, and that cultivates their creative thinking skills. We take special care to tailor lessons to each student’s individual needs and goals so they can develop as complete and versatile musicians. Students develop technical, aural, rhythmic, and reading skills, and they are encouraged to analyze, interpret, compose, and sight-read. For more advanced students, Sasensky School of Piano focuses on musical clarity and power, technical facility, the production of a wide range of beautiful sounds, and an understanding of musical structure. All students are introduced to the traditions and styles that influenced different composers. Teachers also focus on the links between music, philosophy, and art so that students learn to feel the hidden meanings and suggestiveness of music. The students are then more able to merge these ideas with their personal interpretation so that they delve into the heart of the music they are playing.

We are thrilled to be a part of Sasensky School of Piano for over two years for our Son’s exploration of the wonderful world of western music. Sashi’s approach and teaching style truly differentiates from many traditional lessons and helps the kids engaged in music not only in class but also at home.  Sashi managed to keep the kids motivated through online classes even during the pandemic period, engaging with them with different interesting activities. As parents, we are delighted in our Son’s progress and we are confident that he would excel with the guidance that he receives. We wish Sasensky School of Piano a very bright future!

Testimonials

My daughter has been attending the Sasensky School of Piano for the last 4 years. Shashi and her team of teachers have done very well with teaching the basics of music in both practical and theory throughout the years and I have noticed a remarkable improvement in my daughters musical skill and knowledge. The classes have been effectively sized in order to provide proper attention to each child and their teaching techniques are strong, kind and yet firm to ensure the children get the best out of their time spent in class and also practice time at home. While physical classes have worked remarkably well, the Sasensky School of Piano also took on the added challenge in 2020 to quickly adapt to the new way of working considering the safety of the children. The classes were swiftly moved to an online platform and the children were kept engaged to learn even during these difficult times. The year was topped off by an amazing virtual concert which encouraged children to not only showcase their skills with the Piano but also other musical talents. I am very pleased with having enrolled my daughter in this music school and hope to see bigger and better things going forward. All the best to Shashi and the Sasensky school of Piano! Cheers.

 A friend introduced me to Sasensky School of Piano few years ago, when my daughter was taking the initial steps of her musical journey. Like any other beginner, she had her ups and downs, success as well as disappointment. Sometimes when she thought of giving up, I felt that the gentle encouragement of Sashi was instrumental in getting her back on track. Today, she is extremely enthusiastic about music and confident in her own ability. When all activities came to a stop due to COVID-19, Shashi and the Sasensky School of Piano was there with the kids adding variety to their monotonous life. While preparing for exams online, there were so many activities organized like quizzes and recitals and the ‘virtual recital 2020’ the climax of the events. Thank you, ‘Sasensky School of Piano’, for the continuous guidance and dedication.

Understanding the situation Ms. Shashikala managed to conduct classes maintaining safety & was able to channel these little minds to a happy, fun & an interactive place. Senudhi is truly blessed to have found a teacher as enthusiastic & hard working as you are. I wish You & Sasensky School of Piano all the very best for the future!

Testimonials

Ms Shashi was recommended to me by a friend whose kids were learning to play the piano by her. My son Jd, had never played a musical instrument before & the progress he made during such a short time with Shashi as a teacher far exceeded any expectations. Ms Shashi’s enthusiasm, love of playing the piano and her teaching skills is the reason Jd enjoys going week after week for classes. Shashi’s positive approach to teaching was evident when Covid disrupted physical lessons and she immediately started online classes, marking work online and even having games and recitals to keep the kids motivated in such trying times. She is also very proud of each and every student which was evident during recitals. Shashi sets high standards and expectations that she makes clear to her students which has driven my son to do better. We are so grateful to Shashi for her commitment and highly recommend her as a music teacher for any child who wishes to learn piano.
