Tatiana Tchekina Recalled as 'Loved by Students'
Tatiana Tchekina spent much of her time nurturing, guiding, and inspiring young musicians, her students at the Eastman School of Music. "She didn't just teach them notes or to play pieces, she shared her passion and gave them her artistry," said Jean Barr, a longtime friend and colleague of Tchekina. "She was a real blessing.
