Eva Kochenkova

Russian cellist, soloist, chamber musician and recording artist.
Experienced teacher on all levels.

I am a Russian concert cellist, soloist, chamber musician and a recording artist. I have vast experience performing worldwide as well as in Denmark.

I’m experienced in teaching all age groups and abilities. It gives me pleasure to watch young artists develop in a positive way.

Development should be experienced by gaining more technical skills and through greater sensitivity and intuitive understanding of the chosen music.

In my teaching, I emphasise differentiation and take into account the individual student’s views.

I look forward to meeting you.
