Highly creative Teacher!
I have known Dr. Lavinia Balasu for about 40 years, since her National Music College years, as she was one of my best students. Dr. Lavinia Balasu is a remarkably intelligent, diligent, thorough, effective person with high professional standards. She is equally: highly creative, confident, flexible and compassionate; a self-starter, well organised, a gifted and versatile communicator with accurate understanding of people and situations, highly intuitive, knowledgeable, great at managing people from a wide diversity of age and ethnic groups, and of various cultural backgrounds.Lavinia is a highly qualified professional and a thorough, trustworthy teacher and professor, as well as a kind, compassionate and inspiring musician with a keen and gentle sense of humour, that creates a highly positive, up-beat atmosphere. Lavinia's students have always had notable results, in: piano, violin, chamber music, music theory, history of music, practical musicianship - across all age groups. Her students were awarded important international prizes, top scores in international exams and high standard competitions, admissions at several Music Universities and Colleges/Conservatoires worldwide. But, most of all, she inspired students to love music.
