Ksenia (preferred, and Ksenija Laskova being full name) is an experienced classically trained pianist, music educator and researcher. Her performance practice mainly centres around standard piano repertoire as well as slightly lesser know Romantics such as Sergei Lyapounov, Alfreds Kalnins and female composers of the 20th century. Her educational beliefs closely aligned with posthuman philosophies - the subject matter which she continues to explore in her research work and writings.
Through her teaching practice which she conveniently calls KOVA ED, Ksenia provides regular one-to-one piano and music theory lessons as well as GCSE/ A Level music coaching, and ad hoc competition and audition training. She is also on demand as an accompanist and collaborative pianist.
As an educator Ksenia is versatile and will tailor her methodology/methods and approach according to the needs of the pupil. She is pleased with the accomplishments of her pupils many of whom are prizewinners in various music dompetitions and festivals, gained music scholarships, places at prestigious junior conservatoire departments and joined the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain.
"Ksenia is a natural musician and excellent teacher. She has a thorough understanding of musical pedagogy and adapts her teaching effectively in response to the individual needs of her pupils. I could not recommend her more highly." - Benedict H (Head of Music)
"I began my piano journey with Kova Ed's founder, Ksenia, a year ago. As an adult learner and essentially a complete beginner, Ksenia's patient and easy going manner has been invaluable in helping me build my confidence and enthusiasm for the piano. Ksenia is a formally trained and extremely experienced teacher, with a deep foundational understanding of music and music theory. I've really enjoyed my lessons, and look forward to progressing through the ABRSM grades under her tutelage over the next few years." - Luke H (adult learner)
"Ksenia is a very organised and dedicated music tutor. She has a special way of relating to students and helping them achieve their music goals. She is very soft spoken and approachable which puts the students at ease and focus on their progress, asking questions/raising clarifications as they go along. Ksenia understands and prioritises the students’ goals and works with them to achieve the goals - she helped our children prepare and successfully complete their next Piano Performance Grades during the pandemic, and the journey happily continues." - Bindhu N (parent)
