Pianist, guitarist, educator
Born in Gomel, Belarus, Yana's musical life began at birth as she was surrounded by music at family gatherings. She began formal studies on piano at age seven and began to play guitar at thirteen. A complete natural, she also joined a group playing blues and rock guitar while continuing her solfeggio studies and private classical piano at a traditional Russian music school. She later attended Minsk State Linguistic University.
Yana immigrated to the USA in 1999 and continued her Boogie-Woogie and Blues study with David Maxwell and explored Jazz with Harvey Diamond. She has fifteen years experience teaching in Boston, MA. She has taught both privately and for music schools and in stores that offer lessons. She teaches young children, adolescents and adults. Although her strict Russian training is apparent, she instills a sense of fun in music and always has her students playing songs the very first lesson.
Yana teaches a variety of styles on both piano and guitar including Jazz, Boogie-Woogie, Blues and Classical.
