Founder, Violin Teacher
Sep 2013 - Present
Tatiana's Violin Studio

While pursuing an active performance career as a soloist, concertmaster and chamber musician, with engagements throughout the United States, I have also been able to maintain a long history of successfully teaching students of various ages, abilities and goals.

My ultimate goal as a teacher is to educate and inspire my students, provoke and develop their interest and love to music and the violin. As a pedagogue, I strive to create an inspiring but challenging environment for my students. While not solely using a single method or school, I use a combination of all knowledge I earned as a pedagogue on the multiple continents. My teaching curriculum combines the finest aspects of the Russian and American traditions. It is comprehensive and student oriented, with a strong emphasis on individual development.

Dr. Tatiana is wonderful and engaging teacher for my daughter. She began taking lessons at age 4 and developed a strong connection with Dr. Tatiana. Dr. Tatiana has developed a strong foundation for violin as well as reading music and general music appreciation. My daughter looks forward to each lesson. The lesson time is focused and well structure for continued learning, fun, and growth.

Tatiana has been teaching me to play the violin for a little over a couple of months. She is very patient, and adapts her teaching methods to suit her students, and to help them do the best they can, at their level, with their instrument. Which, I think, is the best any teacher can do. I am an adult beginner, so I bring some things from daily life to classes (such as tension) that don't belong with the violin... and I appreciate how she works me on each learning goal, while helping me tackle technical challenges. Classes are focused and structured, but flexible. If that sounds like work, it not... Highly recommend!
