Tatiana is one of the most effective teachers I’ve encountered in traditional music. She’s able to provide a framework across a range of skill levels by introducing the basics of a tune, then augmenting that with hands-on discussion of bowing and possible variations, grounding it all in source recordings as well as historical and cultural context. The instinctive joy she finds in the fiddle is contagious.

Tatiana's teaching draws upon her performing experience as well as her academic background. Combining history with musical technique and stylistic commentary, Tatiana engages her students with more than just the tunes. She has taught at music camps such as the Rockygrass Academy and the Festival of American Fiddle Tunes and has presented about the history of old-time and bluegrass music at institutions such as Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina and El Institute Superior del Arte (ISA) in Havana, Cuba.
