presented the report "Shostakovich as a teacher" at the scientific-practical conference, dedicated to the 110th anniversary ofDmitry Shostakovich, which was held in Lugansk State Academy of Culture and Arts named after Mikhail Matusovsky.

It was a thorough persecution against him, he was forbidden, 'pushed', and he reflected in his music time and events he experienced in his country"
