About Russian Overtones
Russian Overtones was founded by mother and daughter in an attempt to bring the classical Eastern European music education to America. Both classically trained in Russia since the age of 4, their entire lives have consisted of performing, teaching and competing in the musical world. While teaching in the United States, their students have won All-State awards every year,Temple Heinats Monetary Award Competition, ADMTA Solo Contest Winners, Pearl Amster Concerto Competition and many others.
Most importantly, our students have received highest ratings from Trinity London College Examinations, the Exhibition Monetary Award winners. The Trinity program allows to receive up to a full semester of college credit for Liberal and Fine Arts elective classes in college, along with setting up our students with the best gift: real musical professional awareness and deep understanding.
The teachers of Russian Overtones have a combined teaching experience of over 70 years. Their formal education originated in the classical teaching methods of Eastern Europe, which spawned such composers as Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff. The goal of Russian Overtones is to share this unique teaching method which has proven successful for generations.
We provide fun and professional training, the roots of which lie in the Russian-European tradition of playing musical instruments and visual and performing arts.
The Russian style of teaching music and art is unique because it pays specific attention to fundamental knowledge and skills. Russian Overtones combines tradition and hard work of the East European teachings with the fun and creative learning techniques of the West. Our specialty is the ability to customize the training based on the students' ambitions. This allows the student to develop and achieve the highest goals.
