I began my musical education at the age of ten, have played for 24 years, and have fourteen years of formal musical education. I specialize in classical music, and can play any musical style required. I am a Legal Permanent Resident of the United States. I was born in Uzbekistan in a Russian family. I graduated from the Music Conservatory of Uzbekistan with a degree in stringed instruments, studying under professor Atham Mansirev, as well as from the University of Foreign Languages with a degree in English. Currently I am working in Loudoun symphony orchestra and Pro Arte chamber orchestras.

Great first lesson. Learned new methods to improve bowing. Looking forward to the next lesson
I am coming to the cello as a brand new beginner. I have play around with some fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo, etc. But Irina was super at getting me relaxed, focused on basics and encouraging me with small, but important mechanics and technical details. I have taken other music lessons like sax, so could compare. I totally enjoyed the start of my cello training. Oh, btw, I'm retired and over 65!!!
