I have held the Assistant Professor position at the Rostov State Conservatory (Russia) for three years prior to moving to the USA for permanent residence. I was teaching piano performance, chamber music performance and collaborative piano. During that period I trained students of undergraduate and graduate levels. My teaching duties included creating courses for distant education students. My students earned a successful record of achievements, including participation in festivals and competitions.
In 2010 in recognition of my work (teaching and organization of local festival) I was awarded with a title of the “Honored worker of Russian Musical Society”. During those years I also served as a jury committee member for regional piano and collaborative competitions.
Here in the USA, while pursuing a Doctoral degree in Piano Performance I have been teaching piano performance as well. In 2014 I have got a Piano Instructor position at the Michigan State University Community Music School, where I have been teaching students of all levels. As a member of the Music Teachers National Association I give concerts, lectures and open classes at Elementary and High schools, retirement homes and churches.
While being a recipient of the MSU College of Music Educational Residency Fellowship, I have created a series of interactive lessons for elementary level students and presented them at the Donley Elementary School of East Lansing, MI.
In 2015 I was invited to serve as a Guest Artist and Jury member at the MASTA 24th Chamber Festival and Competition of the Eastern Michigan University (Ypsilanti, MI) along with Prof. Dmitri Berlinsky and Dr. Igor Cetkovic.
Since the summer of 2015 I work at the Blue Lake Fine Arts summer camp where my duties include teaching applied piano lessons, ensemble group classes and music history seminars. I also enjoy the opportunity to give concerts along with my Class&Jazz partner, violinist Oleg Bezuglov at the Blue Lake Miller Theater and Edith Blodgett Recital Hall. Here is the recording of M.Ravel Violin/Piano Sonata No.2 performed by Class&Jazz Duo.
