Dzvina Stepanyak

Dzvina Stepanyak

BMus, PGCE and DipABRSM in Piano Performance. Trained as a Secondary Music Teacher at the University of Cambridge.


“I have always been an advocate for promoting musical experiences to all ages. Trained as a classical pianist, I wanted to share my experiences in music and trained to be a teacher at secondary school. In schools, statistically, numbers of music students are rapidly decreasing, and I felt that there was not enough musical outreach. My mission is to expose more young people to great music, and make music learning an enjoyable journey. Music Education should not be mundane, and only theoretical, but also practical. Therefore, as an educator at ‘The Music Castle’, I endeavored to create practical and easy to use resources. I sincerely hope you will enjoy music once you have had your first trial!”

Yumi had been trained classically in Japan and received her training from acclaimed Opera singers, such as Misato Iwamori. She had worked together with Dzvina to establish a Music School, which brought great success by developing new programmes of study. She now teaches at her home studio and has an impressive flow of students, adults and children, who achieve outstanding results in their ABRSM examinations and is working as a private tutoring consultant. After relocating to Beckenham, she co founded ‘The Music Castle’ (TMC), as many students in the area expressed interest in music classes.  Yumi frequently hosts recitals and loves to involve all her students and fellow performers in South London.
