When he teaches, he hits the nail on the head
"Dr. Saratovsky cares about his students a lot. I could feel his passion for music as we were constantly laughing in class. When he teaches, he hits the nail on the head. There wasn't one piano lesson where I left feeling confused. I enjoyed the time working on Bach Partita in E minor with him the most. It was like we traveled back in time, observed Bach improvising and building the pieces from scratch. We went over the style of dances, observed leaps and harmonic changes, and experimented on the phrasing of each voice.
I had some technical difficulties, but he solved them all through his great choice of fingering. Dr. Saratovsky is humble, considering how he saw that I wrote this, he would probably say “Oh, all Idid was just study the score and be there at the lesson". I wish I could've had more time to study with him, and I will never be able to thank him enough."
