Pianist and educator Yulia Roubtsova holds a Masters degree from the Saint-Petersburg State Conservatory (Russia), where she studied music history, music theory, piano and harpsichord. For ten years, Ms. Roubtsova taught music theory, ear training, music harmony and music history at the prestigious Saint-Petersburg Music Lyceum (which serves as St.Petersburg Conservatory Prep Division). She has also worked as a music critic, editor and as a TV producer for a music-themed documentary.
Since coming to the United States in 2009, Ms. Roubtsova has established a reputation in both piano and music theory instruction. Her private theory students consistently receive the highest honors at their RCM examinations, and her piano students have won numerous prizes in local and statewide competitions, and were selected to appear at the North Carolina Bach Festival, UNCSA Piano Weekend and NCMTA Honors recitals. In teaching both theory and performance, Yulia Roubtsova remains committed to the idea that good musicianship requires both.
