Teaching since:

In the past several years, I have received extensive performing and varied teaching experience. While doing my bachelor degree in music performance in Russia I took a string pedagogy course and on the last year of my degree my teacher asked me to substitute for him during the times he was away. In the US, I started my teaching experience on the first year of my DMA degree, teaching viola to private students and in a music school in Zachary, Louisiana. Teaching very young students from pre-school to sixth grade has helped me to develop my skills in organizing lessons, making short-term and long-term goals, and to be able to maintain student interest in music. While working with students it is important to be able to explain an individual that one will understand you and will make it happen, but most importantly is to make the student to enjoy playing an instrument and to develop skills which will be useful in life. During the second and third year of my DMA studies, I was appointed as a teaching assistant at Louisiana State University. My responsibilities in this position entailed teaching undergraduate students and giving complementary lessons. My qualifications in instrumental coaching included every level from 6 years old through university. In teaching and performing areas combined, I have almost 11 years of a professional experience earned through a variety of short-term and full-time positions.
