Oksana always knew that her life would be connected with something special, and music is magic. When people ask the question “What else can you do besides sing?”, Oskana answers she can do everything, but it's just a habit and everyday life, but to feel yourself in your place, to be truly happy is to be on stage, to see this spark in the eyes of the audience, which tells you that you are in the right place! Of course, there is no limit to improvement, so the singer is always interested in learning new things. Her path to music started at a music school, when she was 9 years old and wanted to play the violin, Oksana lived with her parents in the countryside, and they had their own garden, Oksana would find wooden sticks there, sharpen them all year round and play the violin in this way. Thanks to her mother not ignoring her childhood desire, Oksana started studying at a music school with the beautiful teacher Tetyana Polyanchuk (Nadvirna), she entered the music school (violin class), for her Serhii Kreschensky was the best teacher, not only a professional, but also a very good person. In the 3rd year of the school, Oksana realized that the violin is of course very cool, but she got bored, because she thought tha with your voice you can show and convey more emotions to people. That's how she started doing vocals and half of the success here is finding not just a good teacher, but also a friend, a person you can trust completely. The first three attempts were unfortunately unsuccessful, but finally she found him, truly "her teacher" (Ivan Slobodyan) and the result was visible with each lesson. Oksana worked with him privately. In 2016 she graduated from the Denys Sichynsky’s music college with a speciality “Orchestral string instruments, Violin” in Ivano-Frankivsk; In 2017 she worked as a soloist in the Hutsul National Academic Song and Dance Ensamble "Gutsuliya". In 2018, she got the laureate’s diploma of first degree at the IX International vocal competition “The Song Calls Friends” in Chernivtsy. In 2019 she passed the casting and was selected for an internship group at the Lviv National Opera. In connection with the war in my Ukraine, Oksana had to look for professional support, and she simply wrote to Anna Samuil, knowing that she is not only an opera star, but also an excellent teacher. In 2020 Oksana completed the full course at Vasyl Stefanyk Precarpathian National University with a speciality “Music art”. Professional qualification: “Vocal artist”.
