Lina Butorina-Kiva was born in the Ukraine and completed her undergraduate and postgraduate studies at the Piano Department of Kiev State Academy. As a Professor of Piano at Lviv State Conservatoire, she gave many critically acclaimed performances with the Ukrainian National Orchestra and also with leading Ukrainian musicians touring Russian, Ukrainian, Spanish, Polish and Irish cities. She has won numerous awards for performance and for accompaniment, in which she is highly sought after. Lina has recorded for both television and radio in Ukraine. She now lives in Ireland and is establishing a reputation as an accompanist and soloist. She has worked with Soprano Toni Walsh, Georgian Bass David Jozhaze, Violinist Zoe Conway and the Celtic Choristers Male Voice Choir.
Am thoroughly enjoying my lessons and getting re-acquainted with the piano after many years! Lina’s command of the instrument and her love of the music (even when I am mangling it!) shines through in every lesson.
