Natasha (Nataliya) Pashchenko –
I began my music studies in Russia and graduated with a diploma in piano at the age of 16. In 2003, in the middle of a university degree, I moved to Vancouver and pursued Linguistics as my field of study. After working in a corporate environment for a few years, I returned to music as a life path, this time through discovering classical guitar. At this time, I am a proud holder of BMus degree in Classical Guitar Performance.
I currently live and teach in Victoria, BC.
