Belarusian Maya Irgalina is a versatile pianist successfully combining solo and collaborative piano playing.
Maya accompanied really senitively, was really supportive and easy to work with. I would highly recommend her.
Everything was fine and went smoothly
A very reassuring presence in the exam room for my ATCL piano as page turner - thank you so much!
