Piano and Music Theory

My childhood and teenage years were spent in Samara. At the age of 7, my mother enrolled me in music school, which marked the beginning of my long and fascinating journey into the world of music. After studying piano for 7 years, I decided to pursue my musical education professionally. I entered the Samara Music College and graduated with qualifications as a piano teacher and concertmaster. Subsequently, I continued my studies at the Pedagogical Institute, where I wrote my diploma thesis on my son’s musical and creative development within our family environment.

Almost immediately after graduating from the Institute, I moved to St. Petersburg. This city had a significant impact on my personal and professional development. For the past 18 years, I have been teaching piano, singing, dancing, and rhythm-plasticity to children. My students have participated in various competitions and festivals, often achieving top prizes. I love my work and genuinely enjoy celebrating the successes of my students.
