She teaches by example, drawing on her excellence...
Elena has been teaching my 2 sons music for about 3 years. She has an encouraging yet “get down to business” manor that draws the best from her students. She teaches by example, drawing on her excellence as an accordion player and musician making lessons fun and challenging. Elena is a great music teacher and I have come to appreciate her caring friendship as well.

She is kind, patient, and very encouraging.
I first met Elena when she was teaching music and playing accordion at my daughter's preschool. Elena is an outstanding musician, and she inspires her students to love music as much as she does. She is kind, patient, and very encouraging. She helps her students choose music that is both challenging and fun. As her students perform at recitals, you can see the joy in her eyes.
She is truly a gifted teacher and musician.
Elena's love for music lives through every one of her students.
But my passion for learning piano was ignited again when I met Elena five years ago through a mutual friend of ours. I was very fortunate to meet her.
Elena brought music into my life again, teaching me to play piano. She became a soul friend of me. Elena loves to teach kids, and kids adore her. I feel happy to see kids playing piano or accordion. Elena's love for music lives through every one of her students.
Under Elena's Instruction I have improved much faster than I ever imagined!
Elena tailored my Skype lessons with a mix of skill building exercises, alternative fingerings and many fun songs to play. I found Elena both enthusiastic and patient with my progress. She has the ability to diagnose my problems quickly and guide me on a path to correct them.
I highly recommend Mrs Fainshtein for any aspiring musician.

Ms Elena is got the talent to inspire people to play the accordion too.
Ms Elena teaches me lots of new songs I like, and I have feeling too to it. I think she is a great teacher to work with.
Also whats fun about communication with her is ,we like the same songs and both of us have feelings to them when we play it.
She is also a great teacher of accordion. She is highly believes in me that if I keep practicing I can be an accordionist.
She encourages me to playing accordion and never stop playing no matter what gets into my way.
Miss Elena is also great herself when she plays accordion: she feels like she is in a different world, which I really like about her. Ms Elena is got the talent to inspire people to play the accordion too.
In my opinion she is the best music teacher ever!!!
