Featured Music Student
“I was born in Kharkov, Ukraine, and moved to the United States when I was three years old. Music has always been a big part of my culture and my family from a very young age. I grew up with a traditional mentality and approach to music, but was very limited by that. At Eastern, I study with some of the most incredible professors who not only are amazing instructors but also virtuoso musicians. The music faculty has transformed my view and understanding of music and the world. I transformed as a musician and as a person.”
“Eastern has opened my mind creatively by teaching me the world outside of the box.”
