About theremin school

Russian Theremin School is the only authentic theremin school in the world. Our mission is to develop and maintain the approach of Lev Theremin and his students.

The tradition of the school goes back to the classes that Lev Theremin established himself. Lev Theremin

Since 1920 – he became not only the inventor of the theremin but also the first thereminist and the first theremin teacher. 

Among the students of Lev Theremin were such thereminists as Konstantin Kovalsky, Lucie Rosen, Clara Rockmore, Lennington Shewell, Julliette Shaw, George Goldberg and etc.Alexandra Stepanoff - theremin

In  master classes of Lev Theremin took part

Vladimir Lenin, Albert Einstein, Leopold Stokovsky and others.

Our approach and methodology allow you to get quickly the right theremin playing skills. To play your first melody is not so difficult as it seams.

In the world, there are a lot (thousands) of theremin owners, and at the same time, there are not so many people who more or less adequately play the theremin. Often this is a consequence of self-learning and fixing the wrong skills.

All this can be avoided if you take even the most basic and very fist theremin course in our school.

We have been teaching the theremin since 1920
