Aleksandra had her first piano lessons with Svetlana Izmailova at the age of 4,5 in Saint Peterburg, Russia. Several months later she had to have a one year break because of complicated surgical treatment of her leg in the US. By return to Russia, Aleksandra has continued to take piano lessons with Svetlana Izmailova and has become a student of a state music school. In March 2020 Aleksandra became the First Degree Laureate at the XXVIII All-Russian Children's Musical Competition named after D. Shostakovich.
