During this time, the singing never leaves her and she knows deep down that it is the singing that is her true vocation. A decisive meeting with the great Russian baritone Vladimir Chernov and his wife, Professor Olga Toporkova, who immediately believed in the potential of his voice and the beauty of his timbre, confirmed his choice.  She continues to follow their teaching today.
