Meet Ariadna Kryazheva: Violin and WinD instructor at Winchester Stage Music Center

Ariadna Kryazheva, music teacher at Winchester Stage Music Center.

Ariadna Kryazheva is a performer immersed in both classical and jazz music. Her first steps as a musician started at the age of 5 studying violin and piano at the Glazunov School of Music in St.-Petersburg, Russia.

Throughout her own education process, Ariadna encountered many physical and psychological challenges, which lead to her becoming deeply passionate about compassionate music education based on mind-body wellness. Ariadna continues to learn and develop ways to connect her students with themselves and their creativity.

Ariadna graduated from the Lamont School of Music at the University of Denver as a classical violinist and a jazz vocalist with a dual Bachelor of Music degree. After years of classical and jazz training she is now a composer, arranger, lyricist, and a free improviser, still playing trumpet and piano in addition to violin and singing.

Ariadna is an AmSAT certified Alexander Technique teacher. She completed the 1600-hour training over the course of three years at the Riverside Initiative For The Alexander Technique directed by Nanette Walsh.
