ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - For 8-year-old Emily Yang, playing the piano is a chance to escape reality.

“Like when I play ‘Nocturne in C Sharp Minor,’ I feel like it's a sad story. And when I play ‘Hummingbird’ I feel like birds singing all around me,” Yang, a student of the Albuquerque Institute of Music said.

For Ruslan Bayliyeva, it's about touching someone's soul.

“Because I think at the end of the day, it’s not about winning competitions; it’s not about being the best. It’s really about performing for them and making somebody happy,” Ruslan Bayliyeva said.

It's this passion that Albuquerque Institute of Music owner and instructor Tatyana Bayliyeva believes helps produce some phenomenal results in her students.

“I always wanted to be a musician. I always liked music. That probably helped me, maybe the kids see my passion. That helps me and them achieve something,” Tatyana Bayliyeva said.

They may be kids, but they're winning some of the most prestigious awards and playing on some of the most famous stages, like Albert and Carnegie Hall.

“Once in a lifetime experience. It’s memorable. Very exciting for me. And I wish I could do it again and I want to do it again in the future,” Ruslan Bayliyeva said.

So how are they doing it? According to Tatyana Bayliyeva, there’s no special formula. She’s simply sharing her love for music.

“When people ask me if I have a camp, if I make them practice 5, 6 hours or something…no I don't. They feel it. In my studio I’d say this way, they have a very healthy competition,” Tatyana Bayliyeva said.

They start at about $150 a month, but Tatyana Bayliyeva said she's willing to work with those who may need help.
