for Performing Artists
Non-profit organization
Sound Ways, Inc. is a non-profit organization that was established in 2015 for the advancement and education of exceptionally gifted young classical musicians in the United States. Our musicians come primarily from Russia and the former Soviet Union to study and advance their musical careers.

We provide essential support by assisting them with applications to universities and conservatories, summer programs, and scholarships, as well as facilitating live auditions and organizing concerts in the US. Sound Ways also organizes annual events to raise funds for individual musicians and help support our outreach initiatives in Russia.
Thanks to our generous supporters, we have assisted and sponsored young Russian musicians in gaining entrance to the some of the most elite summer music programs in the US, including Boston University, Tanglewood Institute, Music Academy International, and Berklee College of Music Summer Performance.

Our musicians have also received assistance in pursuing undergraduate and graduate studies at leading US music conservatories. We are extremely proud of our success in fostering musical and cultural exchanges between the United States and Russia through our mentorship of extraordinary musicians. We are also honored to offer music concerts to form and raise classical music awareness in children, teenagers and adults and to assist in organizing cross-cultural musical events with other distinguished organizations operating in major US metropolitan area.
