I have been teaching music since I began my studies in 1982 at Gnessin, the music academy in Moscow. At the same time, I thought the balalaika, ensemble and technique at Pushkin’s musical college near Moscow. I moved to Germany in 1998, and a year later became a lecture at Johannes Brahms conservatory in Hamburg (keyboard instruments). Since 2009, I have taught guitar and balalaika at „Kulturhof Itzehoe“, near Hamburg, and since 2013 I have also taught balalaika and piano at the Pinneberg music school. My pupils have won various prizes in the „Jugend musiziert“ competition. In addition I also do distance teaching via Skype – when there is sufficient interest.
