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. 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. I guide each student into the discovery of the most natural, relaxed technique and develop a set of skills necessary to be able to understand, analyze and interpret music of various styles and genres.

About Dr. Tatiana C.

Tatiana has been praised by the press for her “fine performances” (The Washington Post), “dark plush romantic violin sound' (New York Concert Review) and 'thrilling technique and bravura style" (San Francisco Classical Voice). Born in Kharkiv, Ukraine, Tatiana began playing violin at the age of seven and made her professional debut at fourteen performing Bruch’s violin concerto with the Kharkiv Philharmonic. An award winning violinist, Tatiana received her professional training at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow as well as Oberlin Conservatory and the Juilliard School.

In recent seasons Tatiana appeared as a soloist with orchestra, recitalist and concertmaster with leading early music ensembles throughout the United States, Europe and Russia. The highlights include appearances as a concerto soloist in Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons”, Philip Glass’ Violin Concerto no.2 “American Four Seasons”; Tatiana’s solo debut at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Hall, chamber debut at Kennedy Center’s Milennium Stage, as well as solo and duo recitals in Chicago,IL, San Francisco, CA, Minneapolis, MN and New York City. Violinist’s performances and interviews have been broadcast by classical radio stations nationwide including WETA, KALV and WFMT.

In 2016 Tatiana’s first commercial CD recording was released worldwide on Toccata Classics(London, UK). A world premiere of violin music by composer Theodore Akimenko, the album earned very enthusiastic reviews including Fanfare Magazine (US) which called it “a fascinating release” and Classica Magazine (France) which described the interpretation as demonstrating a “total commitment and a free lyricism that goes straight to the heart”. Chulochnikova’s second album “Meditations and Reflections” was recorded at the Steppenwolf Studio in the Netherlands in November 2018.

Dr. Tatiana has been teaching violin to 3 of my children. She has an impressive ability to cater her teaching to their different personalities and ages. They are learning many music and life skills while enjoying their studies with her.

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!

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.
