Oleg Mazny
Live Performance Workshop Music Coach
Education: Cello Performance at The Moscow Conservatory

Activities: Musical arrangement for film and theatre, member of various collectives, sound engineer, band and vocalist coach, sound producer

In the long story of Oleg's rich career, you will find: collaboration with Aleksey Kortnev, Peter Nalitch, Аlеksey Paperny and sound production for the Russian recording of The Nightmare Before Christmas. Among Oleg's students – both those who started from scratch and those who were already professionals – are such musicians as Daniel Lenzi (Alena Sviridova), Andrey Ermola (Crematorium), Nikolay Sarabyanov (Therr Maitz), Aleksey Paperny (Paperny TAM) and Pavel Nikolsky (Studio Powerhouse).

Oleg has worked out a truly unique teaching methodology that compliments traditional pedagogical techniques by allowing students to study their own internal world and experience revelation as they tear down personal barriers on both a physical and psychological level. Oleg's methods suit vocalists, instrumentalists and musical groups alike. Regardless of the skillset that they come in with, each participant of LaMuse will receive new and useful sets of knowledge as they work on the things that limit their capacity to develop.

Sergey is the Chief Instigator of all things creative and crazy at LaMuse. He has taken part in an endless procession of educational and creative projects around the world, projects that constantly keep him looking for new tools to develop as a musician himself. In his opinion, the most important thing in music is that which cannot be put into words – a kind of magic, which makes you hang on every note and stop in fascination at the unexplainably beautiful capacity that music has to paint the world. And even though there are many subtle difficulties in getting a handle on this thing, he is sure it is possible. And that is what lies at the foundation of his course; a course that incorporates years of practice and collecting the best of what he's learned throughout the world.

All you need to do is look at Sofia to dispel any doubts you might have about her. She has the rare gift of bringing an especially comfortable atmosphere into the room with her, wherever she goes. But all the same, it's good to know that Sofia has been working in the field of development and education with children and adults for over ten years. For over five years, she was involved in anticorruption activities and human rights efforts in Russia.

She spent one year living on an eco-farm in Israel, learning the principles of Permaculture and applied ecology, but right now, Sonya lives in America and studies at Naropa University: a university named after the great Indian Mahasiddha, Naropa. Naropa University was founded by Buddhist meditation master and representative of Tibetan Buddhism, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. We could go on and on about Sonya, but it would be better for you to just come and meet her yourself. Sonya will be in charge of internal comfort for participants and instructors of LaMuse, and she will be spearheading the unforgettable Evening Activities.
