A native of Kiev, Ukraine, I studied violin at Gliere Music College and the Tchaikovsky National Academy of Music. I performed at the Internationale Beethovenfest and Young Euro Classic Festival. As an orchestra member, I performed with the Philharmonic Chorus of the City of Bonn as well as the Bonn Opera Chorus under the baton of Roman Kofman. As a member of the Ukrainian National Radio Orchestra, I participated in a number of professional recordings. Currently, I am performing with regional orchestras in California. In 2013, I fulfilled my Master’s Degree in Violin Performance at California State University, Northridge.

Favorite part about Ribét:

What I love about Ribét Academy is its multiculturalism. I like to meet and work with people of different cultures and backgrounds. I love coming to work knowing that I can make a difference in a child’s life each day.
