Very nice to meet you

My life was always about violin and classical music and at some point of time I felt I needed to pass my knowledge and experience to new young and perspective violinists, both on the very early stages in school and on mature level in the conservatoire.

This site is akin to the log-book of success of my students and mine, showing the process of new professional violinist emergence, which usually takes many many years.

Music is an international phenomena. It does not have any boundaries or language barriers. That is why although most of my students are studying in Russia, I co-operate with educational institutions in other countries and make master-classes on a regular basis. And it's not just transfer of my experience to international students! I always learn something new from them and the violin teaching traditions of that particular country.

Teaching itself is not the only thing that I can help students. There are different things that can be done, like performance in ensembles or taking part in internationally recognizable competitions.

Last, but not least is the performance skills. It's not enough to have technical skills to make a great performances. It requires many hours to spend taking part in concerts, to gain necessary experience with live audience. And there could be no better encouragement for young violinist than the recognition by audience and media.

There is so much more that can be done, so I am always very open to new opportunities and projects. If there is anything you would like to discuss, please free to contact me, that will be very highly appreciated.
