Piano Occupational Injury Specialist

As a Piano Occupational Injury Specialist, I deeply care about the well-being of my students and their enjoyment of playing, including all aspects of the piano performance. When the body and mind are free of tensions, I believe we play better and can express our musicality to the fullest extent.

Marina Petrov


"After completing my Grade 8 in Piano, I felt lost in Piano performance. I have since found Marina as my teacher, and I cannot express how much she has changed my playing in any way other than exceptionally. She has helped me grow not only as a musician but as an artist. We focused on reworking my technique, genera l posture and how to care for my previously injured right hand. These exercises have strengthened and improved my playing with zero discomforts in my injury.

Marina’s approach to music is just as personable as it is professional. I look forward to our lessons each week as it is guaranteed I am to learn a new skill. As an adult learner, I feel encouraged and valued as her student and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to all ages and abilities.”
