"Dear Professor Belsky, My name is Ilia Radoslavov and I was one of the judges for the ISMTA/MTNA competition that took place last weekend on the Northeastern Illinois University campus. I had the pleasure to hear both of your students, Benjamin and Sarah, and would like to let you know how impressed I was with their artistic maturity and great sensitivity. It is always a joyful experience when one comes across wonderful talent."
Dr. Ilia Radoslavov, Assistant Professor of Piano, Illinois Wesleyan University
"Svetlana gave one of the best classes we have had here, and we have hosted some brilliant pianists and pedagogues over the years. The students responded superbly to her instruction and personality. She has a keen intellect and wit. A sure sign of a guest's impression is the fact that students and faculty are still discussing her pedagogical insights and visit several days after she was here."
Dr. Robert Palmer, Chair, Piano Department, Ball State University
"We also enjoyed your insightful and witty master class, in which you addressed both the performers and the audience. In addition to the strong musical points you were making, I really appreciated your engaging and encouraging yet persistent approach. The performers responded well to you and we could hear the differences your suggestions made."
Dr. Karin Redekopp Edwards, Professor of Piano, Conservatory of Music, Wheaton College
"Having class with Svetlana is a process of communicating, discussing, discovering, and enjoying. Her affinity and enthusiasm affected me greatly and her various ways of musical interpretation enlightened me a lot."
