Maya Schenk (BA)
Maya moved to Vancouver in 1996 from Vienna, Austria where she studied piano and music pedagogy at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. Originally from the former Yugoslavia, Maya’s early musical training was based on the Russian teaching methodology. Recently, she gained a true appreciation for the Russian teaching method here in Vancouver where she has spent six years studying piano with Russian pianist and UBC professor Dr. Eugene Skovorodnikov. Maya has been passionate about piano since the age of 6 and feels fortunate that she was able to receive high-quality training in both of the world’s most respected musical traditions–Viennese and Russian. Maya has a diverse academic and professional background, with post secondary education in Music, Linguistics, Business, and Finance; however, her love of music makes teaching piano the most satisfying professional choice.
