Diana Borshcheva

Piano and Voice Teacher in NYC

Russian-born American pianist Diana Borshcheva has been praised for her beautiful deep sound and immense artistry. Her passions lie in both solo and collaborative repertoire. Ms. Borshcheva won several competitions in Russia and Europe as a solo pianist, including the International Piano Competition in Italy (Grand Prix) and the International Piano Competition in Lithuania (First Award).

A graduate of the Central Music School of Moscow Conservatory (Moscow, Russia), Ms. Borshcheva received a Bachelor’s Degree in Solo Performance from the Longy School of Music of Bard College in 2016 and a Double Master’s Degree in Solo and Collaborative Piano from the Cleveland Institute of Music in 2019. Before her position at Bard College Conservatory, Diana studied with Warren Jones at the Manhattan School of Music.

In the summer of 2019, Ms. Borshcheva worked as a pianist and vocal coach in Salzburg, Austria. In the spring of 2021, Ms. Borshcheva started a series of classical music concerts in Red Hook, NY. “Music in Red Hook” was created to support local artists after the difficult period during Covid lockdowns, when the majority of musicians lost opportunities to perform. In September 2021, Ms. Borshcheva and a group of like-minded colleagues launched “Music in Red Hook Cultural Institution”, a place that provides music lessons and open lectures to enrich cultural life of the community. In the summer of 2022, Ms. Borshcheva performed at Tanglewood Music Festival, and worked as a vocal coach for a production of “La Boheme” in Steamboat Springs, CO.

Ms. Borshcheva is now a dedicated piano teacher and vocal coach at Riverside Music Studios in Manhattan, NYC. Her teaching experience began 12 years ago when she became an assistant of her professor in Moscow. Ms. Borshcheva works with young students as well as adults. In Diana’s opinion the main goal of learning music is to enjoy it.
