Introduction: BIO For more details, live performances videos, please visit tatiana.com Violinist Tatiana Chulochnikova has been praised by the press for her “fine performances” (The Washington Post), “dark plush romantic violin sound' (New York Concert Review) and 'thrilling technique and bravura style" (San Francisco Classical Voice). Born in Kharkiv, Ukraine, Tatiana began playing violin at the age of seven and made her professional debut at fourteen performing Bruch’s violin concerto with the Kharkiv Philharmonic. An award winning, Tatiana Chulochnikova received her professional training at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow as well as Oberlin Conservatory and the Juilliard School. In recent seasons Tatiana Chulochnikova appeared as a soloist with orchestra, recitalist and concertmaster with leading early music ensembles throughout the United States, Europe and Russia. The highlights include appearances as a concerto soloist in Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons”, Philip Glass’ Violin Concerto no.2 “American Four Seasons”; Tatiana’s solo debut at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Hall, chamber debut at Kennedy Center’s Milennium Stage, as well as solo and duo recitals in Chicago,IL, San Francisco, CA, Minneapolis, MN and New York City. Chulochnikova’s performances and interviews have been broadcast by classical radio stations nationwide including WETA, KALV and WFMT. In 2016 Chulochnikova’s first commercial CD recording was released worldwide on Toccata Classics(London, UK). A world premiere of violin music by composer Theodore Akimenko, the album earned very enthusiastic reviews including Fanfare Magazine (US) which called it “a fascinating release” and Classica Magazine (France) which described the interpretation as demonstrating a “total commitment and a free lyricism that goes straight to the heart”. Chulochnikova’s second album “Meditations and Reflections” was recorded at the Steppenwolf Studio in the Netherlands in November 2018.

Tatiana began working with my daughter at the age of 4. She has developed a strong connection with my daughter. Tatiana is a fun and patient teacher with a strong sense of building skills for violin as well reading music, and general music appreciation. My daughter looks forward to taking a lesson each week. The lesson time is very well focused and structured to continue learning each week.

Tatiana teaches 2 of my children (ages 7 and 4), and is doing a terrific job. She has forged a strong personal connection with each of them (especially impressive since my younger one began lessons with her virtually, during the pandemic!), which is so important for the teacher-student relationship. And she knows exactly when to introduce new skills for my children to learn, and when to encourage them to step back and enjoy using what they've already learned. I was a serious violinist myself as a child, and am delighted at my children's progress and, perhaps more important, their increasing love of music under Tatiana's tutelage. Big thumbs up from our family!

My daughter had blossomed under Tatianna's instruction. She is a very talented music teacher who really invests in her students. I highly recommend her. We were fortunate to have her as a violin teacher. She inspired my daughter and helped to instill diligence and quality practice time at home.

Dr. Tatiana is a great violin teacher and I consider myself lucky to have found her to teach me - a beginner in violin. She focuses on not just the music but also form, posture, and helps me relax during lessons, making the learning process an enjoyable one. Every time she gives me new music, there is always a new technique I learn from it. Will definitely continue learning from her for the near future!

Tatiana is the most professional and inspiring violin instructor. I took lessons with her for about three years before I moved out of state. I was 25 with no prior experience with violin before I met Tatiana and she had done miracles with me. She is an outstanding violinist and dedicated teacher who treats her students with love and respect. She is also very kind, understanding, and patient. I recommend her to anyone who want to learn a great deal in violin playing and musical arts.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Greetings! I am very much looking forward to interacting with you on an individual basis. As so much of violin playing depends on a close relationship with your physicality, I'm here to help guide you, to the best that I can, through a holistic and mindful approach to violin performing and practicing. Mind over matter, always in the service of music. All ages and levels are welcomed. Lessons are taught in English or Russian. The only thing asked from you is a serious, committed, and passionate attitude. At this time, I am offering a one-time package of three private lessons, meant to act as a supplement to your current studies. That said, for those who are beginners or are looking for regular guidance there is an option of signing up for permanent weekly lessons. To help me begin to know you as a violinist and person, please take a few minutes to send me a message and leave your contact info. I will respond promptly via email to schedule a **free 15-minute consultation via Zoom**, which each prospective student is entitled to. During the consultation, we'll discuss structure of lessons, rates, policies, and logistics- and, have a general chat! I look forward to meeting you. Take care, Dr. Tatiana Chulochnikova
