I am excited to share my love for this instrument with my students no matter what age they are. I see each person as an individual who has their own artistic voice and I will help you to further develop it.

Hello dear students! My name is Artem and I'm 25 years old. I have been playing violin since I was 4 years old and am a freelance musician, composer and pedagogue.
I am passionate about teaching because I believe education and willingness to learn is an extremely important factor for personal development and success.
I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia and underwent intensive training in voice, violin, composition and piano. After winning the Frieburg Intenational Violin Competition in 2010, I was offered a full scholarship to study music at Dalhousie University at the age of sixteen. After moving to Canada I went through a 9-month intensive english learning program, so I know first hand how difficult it can be to learn a new language. This experience helped me understand the struggles that any ESL student goes through and discover new ways to teach Russian and English to others.
I am excited to get to know you and share my knowledge with you!

Not only is Artem a world class violinist but also a very nice person who will make you look forward to the next lesson.

Artem is an excellent teacher. He provides the perfect balance of explanations, demonstrations and expectations for at-home practice. Thank you so much!
Nothing beats learning from a native speaker, especially one as knowledgeable and professional as Artem. Russian is his native language, but you would never have guessed it since his English is impeccable. He takes difficult concepts and makes them simple to understand. He walks with you each step of the way, meeting you at your level and guiding you to fluency. He understands the best way you learn and adapts to your learning needs and situation. Artem will help you attain native pronunciation and will go out of his way to provide extra help and materials. I've been amazed how much I have gained from lessons with him. Highly recommended. Wonderful teacher.+ Read More
Artem was great. He is a good communicator and is flexible with his schedule. Thanks Artem!!
Artem was incredibly helpful when I was taking my Russian classes. My parents never taught me and I finally decided to learn so I could converse with my grandparents.
Artem was amazing at showing me how to speak naturally and fluently without ever getting impatient with me. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn.
Artem is a wonderful violin teacher! He makes it a pleasure to go to lessons and is always in a good mood.
He helped me develop my ability to speak Russian without ever putting me down. I've had many Russian teachers and he's by far the nicest I've ever had. I feel like I learned a lot
Artem has helped me so much with writing my essays and improving my english skills. I would say that I was only able to pass my high school english thanks to him.
I loved how easy he makes everything seem by breaking down complex ideas into much easier and simpler concepts. I highly recommend him!
Artem is knowledable, experienced and very friendly. His feedback is always thoughtful yet detailed and critical. My performance skills have improved substantially as a result of studying with him. He also always encouraged me during lessons to think independently and develop my own artistic voice.+ Read More
Eventhough I began to study violin with Artem at a very low level, he made me feel welcomed into the music world. He was very patient with me and tried to work with my skill level. I also took Russian with him, I highly recommend both.
