Hi. I studied at one of the top music conservatories in Russia, namely the Nizhny Novgorod Conservatory where I graduated as a concert pianist, accompanist, chamber ensemble musician and piano teacher. I went on to perform and teach as a senior lecturer at various colleges, music schools and university in Russia and South Africa. As a teacher I have developed a reputation for excellence and as a result of my consistently high standard of achievements by my students in exams and National Eisteddfods, I have been acknowledged and recognized by Trinity College of London as one of the best piano teachers in Johannesburg. I was consulting for Trinity College and assisting with the development and improvement of all exam related issues from sight-reading to the choosing of exam pieces for their books internationally.
