About

I'm a cellist, singer and music teacher. I took part in various music festivals, competitions and master-classes with world-known musicians including Arto Noras, Natalia Shakhovskaya and others. I have experience in performing both classical and pop/jazz/ethnic music. I arrived to Canada in 2019 as a self-employed artist to find new opportunities and to widen my knowledge and experience.

Thoughts About Art and Community

I'm glad to share my knowledge and experience in music with my students around Toronto. Especially during pandemic, my online lessons made the life of my students more similar to normal, when all other educational services were closed. I'm also organizing concerts for my projects, now online performances to keep lifting up the spirits of Torontonians.

Activities

I have a few musical projects to perform with. One is NaMaNa, a project with my husband. We play lounge and fusion music. Another project is The Soul Strings. It's a collaboration of Toronto musicians who loves to play chamber music for various ensembles up to 5 members. I also teach music and collaborate with some Toronto schools including Forte Music Services and Sistema Toronto.
