Oksana® Kolesnikova Redefining the American Dream
Just making the cross-globe trek from Siberia to America at the age of 15 would, in itself, be enough to change a child’s trajectory and mindset, instilling a perspective perhaps fraught with uncertainty, trepidation and overwhelming sense of disconnect. But for Santa Clarita-based Oksana® Kolesnikova, businesswoman and professional pianist with a plethora of accolades and accomplishments to her credit, this move was the catalyst for a fully-fledged American success story.
Oksana® began mastering the art of piano playing at the tender age of five, winning her first competition at nine and attaining a degree in Music from the prestigious Florida State University. From that particular moment in time onward, Oksana® would fulfill her destiny to become a tour de force in the music and musical instruction world, being the first Russian-American female pianist to travel overseas and entertain US military personnel, getting invited to perform for United Nations officials and more.
Oksana®’s entrepreneurial spirit was forged in the creation of her own Oksana® School of Music and Art, founded in 2010 to offer lessons in piano, guitar, violin, drums and voice, among other instruments, to students in the greater Los Angeles area. The school, now boasting over 70 highly-qualified instructors, served as a jumping-off point for Oksana®’s foray into private tutoring services via the Oksana® Management Group, Inc., an LA-based professional education services company offering “The Ultimate Enrichment Experience.”
The OMG, Inc. endeavor, almost singlehandedly, has acted as a proverbial springboard for additional projects, including foreign language and k-through-12 academic tutoring, amongst other undertakings.
From academic tutoring and foreign language instruction to premium-level music lessons, OMG, Inc. represents a one-stop-shop solution for scholastic enrichment, providing families in the Los Angeles area professional educational services.
As one of Oksana®’s more recent ventures, Oksana® Enrichment offers private one-on-one lessons for students and ASE programs for public, private and charter schools – but the big news coming out of OMG headquarters has been the Oksana® Enrichment franchising opportunities, currently available in 35 states, offering an opportunity for business-minded entrepreneurs to operate their own branch.
Also of note are OMG’s social/networking mixers, bringing together real estate agents, business owners, entrepreneurs and other professionals for the purpose of making new friends and rewarding connections, and an upcoming venture that remains very close to her own heart, the Oksana ®Foundation. This non-profit endeavor’s goal is to bring educational opportunities to disadvantaged youth, and through the Foundation, sponsors/donors will be able to participate by way of donating funds so that these children and their schools have access to OMG’s ASE programs, as well as Oksana®’s private lessons.
Oksana® Kolesnikova truly believes children are the future, and working with today’s youth is what motivates her to succeed day in, day out.
The Oksana® Management Group, Inc. is headquartered at 9350 Wilshire Boulevard Suite 203 in Beverly Hills, with a second office in Valencia. (323) 284-7930.
