About the director

Alina Solodovnikova- Adams

I started violin lessons at the age of six with my first teacher Yefim Shestun, who played a major role in choosing my profession later in life. After completing music school and Leontovich Music College, I continued my education at the Vinnitsa State Pedagogical University. I graduated from all the schools with Honors, and in 1995 got my Masters degree in teaching music, (violin, voice, piano), Performing Arts and Choral Conducting. I consider myself to be very fortunate to have been trained under the well-known European masters: cellist and conductor Roman Semko, violinist and bowed strings instruments maker Alexander Sergienko and choirmaster Vitaly Gazinsky.
After extensive training I went to work for the Ukrainian State Philharmony, traveling all over the former Soviet Union, performing in many venues as a member of a chamber orchestra, folk music group and a solo performer. I continued performing and teaching private students, and also enjoyed my work as a model in many fashion shows for 12 years prior to coming to America.
I served as an assistant concertmaster in the Solano Symphony from 2002 till 2014, and now I am proud to be an assistant concertmaster of the Symphony Orchestra of Northern California. I teach students of all ages at my private studio in Vacaville.

Note from the director:

Dear music lovers and potential students!
I would like to share a few thoughts. Lately I have been getting a new wave of inquiries about music lessons. Most of the questions I receive deal with the cost of lessons. I believe a more important question is, "What type of teacher/pedagogue do you want to study with?" Ask any potential teacher about his or her degree, knowledge, field of expertise and experience!
Why would you trust someone who, sometime and somewhere took some music lessons, with the instrumental or vocal studies of you or your children? If you want an electrician to work in your house, you want the best, most knowledgeable electrician you can find. If your neighbor only charges $10 per music lesson, it may mean that person simply hasn't put the proper years of practice and performing into his or her craft. The person may have the best intentions, but may have no post-graduate or even college level of pedagogical and psychological education. They may never have received training in HOW to teach. And some of them may still charge their students like professionals.
Don’t assume all music teachers are trained properly. ASK! You deserve the best!

Yours truly, Mrs. Alina Adams
