Welcome our new piano instructor!

We want to spread the word that we have hired a new full-time piano instructor for our West Lake location, Andrei Zimbalist. Andrei is a classically trained performer and teacher, and most recently was an assistant professor at the highly respected Tchaikovsky Moscow Conservatory iin Russia. Due to the unfortunate events there, Andrei had to leave the country. Fortunately, he has an Extraordinary Talent Visa and was able to come to the U.S. where he has decided to make Austin his home.

Andrei has worked with students of all ages and levels, from young children up to adult university students. He is experienced and of strong teaching philosophy, yet very flexible and patient and strives to work with each student at their own individual level. He is also very friendly, fun and communicative… and eager to start working with CW students!

Please help to welcome Andrei to the CW musical family! We are so excited to help him get settled in and join our staff!
