Piano and Voice Instructor
Piano, Voice

Born and raised in St. Petersburg, Russia. My mother introduced me to the world of music early in my childhood.

I started playing piano at the age of 4 and singing at the age of 10.

I fell in love with music and decided to take this path in life.

I spent 12 years studying and then successfully graduating from the ‘Music and Performing Arts School’ with a red honors diploma (piano/voice/music theatre) and later on received my bachelors in ‘St. Petersburg State College of Music by M.P. Mussorgskii’ (music education: voice major).

Throughout my college years I have participated in numerous competitions and festivals such as:

I have a strong belief that music can change lives for the better.

I seek to equip students with the performance, composition and theoretical skills that will see them excel no matter what path they take in music.

As an engaged and determined teacher, I thrive teaching both one on one and in group scenarios.

Being a mom myself I know how great of an impact music makes on children. I’m thrilled and excited to become a member of Potomac Music and to share this journey with you!
