This is how 2 referees rated Alla:
I was born in St. Petersburg, where I obtained my education. At the age of 6 - Special Music School. then Music College and Russian State Pedagogic University named after A.I. Hertzen. From the age of 11, I started to actively travel all around the World with children “concert choir” (UK, USA, France, Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Holland) with a classical program. We performed 19 century Russian Orthodox, Russian Soviet and foreign music from medieval to contemporary, and played to large audiences in all kind of churches, cathedrals and concert stages. There I got my first experience of working with TV and record companies. I was then invited to “State Choir TV and Radio Channel-5” (the main channel in Saint-Petersburg) as a soloist and continued with trips across Russia and abroad, working with TV and record companies. I consider my final and the main achievement to date in Russia as directing choir in St.Nicolas Church where I was restoring old (from 19century) library, establishing new young choir, raising quality of church singing and extending repertoire.
Apart from my professional work with choirs I professionally play piano and I have 15 years of tutoring. My desire is to create and all my life I am fond of writing my own songs, piano and choir compositions.

She is amazingly talented and very easy to get in with, making the lessons highly enjoyable and rewarding. My playing has come on so much in such a short time and never thought I would be able to read music, even at the very basic level that I am at.
I highly recommend her as a tutor.
Good at constructive criticism and is very patient to wait until you've
got the piece perfect.
