I am a concert pianist. I was playing recitals with Elena in Russia. Also I know many of her former students. She is an amazing musician and the nicest person I have ever met. I would recommend to take lessons with her because she knows how to encourage students to practice. All her students love playing flute. She makes the flute fun while being also very detailed about technique. Her way of explaining is very thorough. Elena is a very experienced artist, during the lesson she shows how musical phrase should sound, what makes lessons with her very productive. After starting to study with her you will notice the progress in playing flute very soon.
