Larissa is dedicated and passionate about music. She is an amazing teacher and mentor. I would full-heartedly recommend her piano tutoring services!
Mrs. Korkina dedication and support have shaped me in ways far beyond the limits of piano . In five years you crafted me to love the stage - to perform songs, not to pay them;, to embrace crowds, not to fear them; and feel content,emboldened and powerful under the lights, not crippled, you have planted in me a deep confidence that helped me cherish the most fulfilling activities. It's the same performer's spirit that carries me through orchestra, drives my love for public speaking, and pushes me father for athletic matches. You've taught me that what I perform matters and ought to be seen and heard. Few feelings and gratifying. Thank you.
