Teaching Approach and Lesson Topics:
I believe that every one has great musical potential and that music education can greatly enrich anyone’s life and make us appreciate music on a completely another level. In my trumpet lessons I strive to give the student all the necessary tools to develop their own sound, technique, and style.
No matter the level or age, there is always potential for self-improvement and I find the striking a perfect balance between: technique, intonation (ear), and musicality in lessons can give a great boost in quickly reaching the person’s highest potential. Yet, of course, an individual approach must be formed as the balance between the three aforementioned elements is different from one person to another.
Trumpet is, unfortunately, not an easy instrument to master and requires a lot of time patience. I believe, that whatever the student puts in his or her lessons and practice will be the exact result of his time, thought, and efforts. With the right tools and approach, playing trumpet can really become a great joy!
I recently graduated with a Doctorate degree (DMus) in Early Music Performance at McGill University (2019-2022). Initially, I began studying music from a very early age (3-4 y.o.). First, at the Third Street Music school (NY) on flute and piano, then in Russia, I continued my music studies at Kabalevsky Music School (Moscow), Rakov Music School (Moscow) both on piano with extra curriculum in choir singing, solfege, and harmony. In F. Chopin Music School (Moscow), and “C-Jam Club” Jazz Studio (Moscow) I studied on trumpet. I received my Bachelor of Music degree in performance with a qualification in teaching (2010-2014) from Frederic Chopin Moscow State College. My Master of Music degree (2014-2016) I received from Mannes School of Music. I received a Specialist diploma (2013-2018) from Moscow State Conservatory in Early Music and Contemporary Music Performance with qualification in teaching as well. Finally, I also received an Advanced Certificate in Music Performance (2017-2018) from Brooklyn College and a Graduate Diploma (2018-2019) from McGill University.
