“My adventure in music started when I joined a specialized choral school in Moscow. which offered well-rounded music education with strong emphasis in  piano. 
Those were the best years of my youth, immersed in beautiful music, concerts, trips, summer camps with my chorus …There was no other choice for me but to continue this amazing journey, now as a teacher..."
