Sonia Gergis, born Yassa, grew up in a musical and artistic family with a strong piano playing tradition. She was introduced to the Italian school of piano playing by Professor Ettore Puglisi and then developed her style of piano playing by working with Russian musicians under Dr Irakle Beritze then Dean of the Cairo Academy of Music.


In England she pursued a career in music education where her breadth of experience and her depth of culture were very much appreciated. She worked for several years as Head of Music Department in an international school. She was praised by offsted inspectors on two separate occasions particularly for her sensitivity in a multicultural environment and her expertise accross the age range from nursery to A levels.


Sonia Gergis has established a successful piano teaching practice on the London Essex border where she worked for many years in partnership with some distinguished teachers including Dr Fernando Martin Pastor, Yasuka Kamizono, Miwako Miki and Eralys Fernandez.
