About Me

My name is Ilinca Vartic, I am a pianist and a piano teacher.

I am currently teaching piano at the Academy of Music, Theater and Fine Arts from Chisinau.

I’m also the founder of PianoCareerAcademy.com – a unique online Piano Coaching Program where I share the secrets of the Russian Piano School via my holistic approach to piano playing, music and lifestyle.

I have a Master degree in Musical Art – Instrumental Performance (The Academy of Music, Theater and Fine Arts from Chisinau, Moldova, 2006).

In 2004 I graduated the same Academy with the University degree of Bachelor of music, specialization Piano.

In 1999 I graduated the Republican Musical Lyceum “C. Porumbescu” from Moldova, specialization Piano.

I began to study piano at the age of 6. I had the great honor of being the student of two renowned piano professors: Lia Oxinoit (during the lyceum years) and Ludmila Vaverco (during the Academy years). Combining the  best traditions of the Russian piano school with the western musical achievements, they gave new standards to the pianistic art from Eastern Europe.

Besides playing and teaching piano, I’m also constantly researching and practicing different self-improvement systems: meditation, yoga, emotion control, healthy nutrition and other methods of improving the quality of our life. In order to have a fulfilled piano career, practicing piano and studying the theory of music (and other related subjects) is absolutely not enough. Everything has to be balanced in our life – body and mind, practice and theory, movement and stillness, music and silence.

It’s impossible to make considerable progresses in a certain field (in our case – piano playing) without deeply knowing yourself, the surrounding universe and your mutual interaction. That’s why the word ‘harmony’ has to reach its true complex meaning given by the ancient philosophers, thus helping us to have a fulfilled life, where music and piano will have a special, shining place.

PianoCareer.com and PianoCareerAcademy.com are dedicated to this new perspective on piano playing. I created these projects for sharing my experience and my holistic approach to instrumental performance, as well as showing you the most important principles of the Russian piano school.
