Mrs. Olesya S.

Ms. Olesya was born in the Ural Mountains of central Russia, the dividing line between European and Asian Russia. Olesya began her musical education at the age of 6 in the art school for gifted children. She continued her musical education through her school years and eventually graduated from the musical college, which specializes in educating chorus conductors and pianists. Because of her love of beauty and her deep interest in the human soul, she devoted ten years to the study of psychology and earned a PhD in Psychology from the Moscow Socio-Psychological University. Upon moving to the states, Olesya taught her native Russian language to children, and in doing so discovered a new passion for helping children with special needs. She attended Brenau University, and she is currently in the final stages of completing the requirements to become a licensed Occupational Therapist in the state of Georgia.

Throughout all of Olesya’s journeys, her love for music and teaching children to play the piano has remained constant. She is an experienced piano teacher of 12 years. Through her experience teaching piano to children with various levels of autism and Aspberger’s syndrome, she has grown to truly believe that there may well be a dose of musical genius in each one of the children that she has been blessed to work with.

She is a patient and dedicated teacher, and she is committed to bringing out the best in each student she works with. Caring for special needs children can be a difficult, yet oftentimes a rewarding task. While caring for and teaching children with special needs, Olesya is always looking for ways to better understand, communicate, and enter the personal worlds of the children who are most often misunderstood. She strives to help them improve their grades and to help them succeed in society as best they can. She uses music and all of its facets—physical, emotional, mental, social, aesthetic, and spiritual—to help clients improve or maintain their health. Olesya strongly supports the power of music, as she has seen first-hand that music lessons for special needs children can provide breakthroughs through music therapy in ways that other approaches may fail.
