I was incredibly lucky to study music performance with some of the fiercest musicians in the world. Among my mentors were Vadim Monastyrsky, David Witten, Robert Schwartz, Sharon Mann, and Frank Levy for piano, Evgeny Tsirlin and John Axelrod for conducting.


I taught piano at Tihon LeAkademia HaMusika in Jerusalem as a teaching assistant, ITAR Music School in Ramle, Israel, and at Mills College as a teaching assistant, and performed solo piano and chamber music concerts in USA, Ukraine, and Israel, where my performance was featured on KolHaMusika radio.

Music guided my way from Kharkiv, Ukraine, to study in Jerusalem, Israel, and later in the USA, where I stayed to reside. Now I play and teach piano in the Bay area, California, and conduct symphonic and opera concerts in Eastern Europe. I've participated in multiple international piano festivals and conducting workshops, including Summit Music Festival (NY), International Keyboard Institute and Festival (NYC), Semper Music Festival (Italy), Masters de Pontlevoy (France), USA Musical&Art Exchange piano festival (Philadelphia, PA); Baltimore Chamber Orchestra Conducting Workshop (MD), Sonoma State University String Conducting Workshop (CA), University of Maryland Wind Conducting Seminar (MD), San Francisco Conservatory of Music Summer Conducting Workshop (CA), Pacific Northwest Conducting Institute (WA), Make Beautiful Music Interactive Online Course, and others.
