Valeriya Sholokhova, born in Kyiv, Ukraine, holds degrees from The Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music, and the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen. While at Juilliard, she was a full-scholarship student of Bonnie Hampton. Valeriya was a laureate in a number of international competitions, including the Liezen International Cello Competition in Austria and the Antonio Janigro Cello Competition for Juniors in Croatia. She has participated in several summer music festivals, such as The Perlman Music Program, Aspen Music Festival, The Music Academy of the West, Kronberg Academy, Spoleto Festival, and YOA Orchestra of the Americas, serving as a principal cellist.  Since her graduation, Valeriya has gained the reputation of a sought-after performer and teacher in the New York City area.

I am a patient and open-minded teacher who enjoys guiding each student's growth at their personal pace and respecting their approach to music and learning. I aim at an open communication between me and the student, as the student's feedback is one of the most improtant guides for me as a teacher. 

I have been teaching private students for 7 years, and it has proven to be one of the most satisfying parts of being a professional musician. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me!

All reviews on Lessonface are by students or parents of students who have taken lessons on Lessonface.
Valeriya has been so helpful. I am a beginner adult student and have been studying with her for almost a year. She is very astute with suggestions for foundation type skills. For example, a bow hold that is relaxed and supple instead of tense and strained. She is patient, kind, smart and funny! I feel very fortunate to have her as my cello teacher.
