I was born in Japan of Russian-Japanese musician parents, My father, Vladimir Takenouchi studied in Vienna under Emil Sauer, renowned student of Franz Liszt. From my early age, I was coached by Russian concert pianists and professors from Russia. At age 15, I went to Rome, Italy, to study with Professor Renzo Silvestri who was head of the Santa Cecilia and also with the famous pianist Carlo Zecchi. I am a graduate of Royal College of Music, London, De Paul University (M. Mus.) and Doctorate from Northwestern University (1987).

I am laureate of several international competitions including the Viardo Int'l Piano Competition. The competition was judged by international jury that included Dan Thai Son, winner of the Int'l Chopin Competition, Warsaw, Poland. I have given many concerts in USA and internationally. I teach all levels. I always try to develop the best potential in the student, be it for relaxation or competition.

Many prize winning students who have won recital opportunities at Carnegie Hall or have been accepted to Juilliard with full scholarship.
