Luba, the shortened Russian name of Liubov, meaning love, was born in a small town amongst Ural mountains in South east Russia. Luba started to display an amazing talent and interest in music at such a young age, her parents started her in vocal and piano classes at the age of four years old. Only a year later she began to sing on stage and perform in concerts for children.

At 14 Luba was accepted into Kurgan music college, a very prestigious school which was quite and accomplishment to be admitted at such a young age. Throughout her four years in music college, Luba spent countless hours practicing and performing vocals, teaching/playing piano and dance. Her education didn’t stop here and upon graduation she proceeded to further her studies at the Moscow State Univercity of culture and arts where she continued her lessons and majored as a director of shows and musical plays. Even while study full time, Luba have achieved numerous accomplishments during her schooling, including winning Moscow premier local pop music contest Art-Arena, live concert performances, and winning numerous competitions.

In summer of 2008 Luba made a decision to venture to the U.S. for a cultural experience and expanding her musical education at the Julliard school NYC for the summer student exchange program.

With the continuing education she was able to overcome many of her initial language barriers and had successfully started teaching as well as playing piano professionally.

Luba currently teaches privately piano and voice, works for ballet Arizona as a pianist and is the Lead Organist for a local orthodox church here in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area.
