We are very happy to report that we have now the first SUZUKI™ Voice Teacher in Russia!
Soprano Diana Golskaya from Moscow completed ESA Level One SUZUKI™ Voice examination in December 21st, 2020. The first online voice exam was a very good experience.

Diana was accepted into SUZUKI™ Voice Teacher Training in Spring 2019 and participated in training at Children's Cultural Center Pessi in Vantaa before the pandemic in July 2019.
She observed lessons of all ages, received instructions and at the end started to practice teaching with SUZUKI™ Voice students (age 3 months and up).

At the same time there were Level 1 to 3 teachers-in-training from Finland, Poland and Ukraine.  How nice it was for them to share, exchange teaching ideas and experiences.

They all participated in the SUZUKI™ Voice Summer Recital at Music House in Helsinki and sang together songs with the students from their training level.

After returning home, Diana translated the songs into Russian and started to teach her own students in Moscow face to face and online during 2020.

She received regular feedback about her repertoire and Teaching-in-practice lessons from ESA SUZUKI™ Voice Teacher Trainers Mette Heikkinen, Analia Capponi-Savolainen and Dr. Päivi Kukkamäki (Home TT).  She completed all written work and home recordings with care. 

When I asked Diana during the exam what makes her happy as a SUZUKI™ Voice Teacher, she told us that it is so amazing how easily children learn when she is using the SUZUKI™ Method.   The happiness of children makes her so happy.  Children are like mirrors, I am sure Diana will become a very good SUZUKI™ Voice Teacher.
