I started teaching music in Leningrad fifty-four years ago and haven't stopped since. I studied at School of Music of Leningrad Conservatory and at Saint Petersburg Conservatory. When I was fifteen, my music teacher asked me to tutor one of her students and then another one, and so on. I was teaching private lessons and then, when I was eighteen, I started as a teacher at Leningrad Music School for Children and had twelve students in my studio.
