My favorite musicians Natalia Bezuglova and Oleg Bezuglov have recorded my latest composition “Fantasia” based on church hymns last Friday. It was unbelievable journey with my friends who came all the way from Lansing, MI. Thanksgiving Day was very special this year and we all had so much fun, practicing and making the last corrections to my “Fantasia”. Now I hope to release my 4th CD “Unchained” on Christmas 🎄!

Today I was happy to listen to my students' piano duet. Two sisters Leila and Lara Thomas have started to prepare for our Christmas recital and work on a very beautiful and shiny piece "Sleigh-bell Tinkle" by Richard Eilenberg.

I am looking for a Piano Duet Competition to share their incredib

I feel so lucky that I have such talented students who inspire me to work harder and be more creative as a teacher, playing interesting music with great spirit. Today Leila and Lara surprised me again and performed a soundtrack from the game "Sonic". It was a beautiful duet "His World" by Tomoya Ohtani. They gave me an idea about a piano duet competition. Both girls have started to prepare for online "Christmas Competition" that takes place in Russia. We are very exited to sh
Last week I wrote two more "Music Stories". They came out so easily and naturally that I just had to write them down without even thinking. I named one of them "Milky Way". It is a relaxed and peaceful music which brings you straight to the space from the very fist notes. The other one is written in film style. It sounds like a soundtrack from a romantic movie with some story that is full of hope and love. Please, listen to my little stories and imagine your own one!

A week ago our students and our studio's teachers were celebrating Halloween via Zoom. We had costume contest where everyone had to dress up for Halloween. It was so much fun, watching our students in Zoom who were witches, ghosts, main characters from famous movies and different types of animals. Our teachers were wearing costumes as well.
