“Being able to teach a variety of musical instruments through my School of Music makes me feel more complete as an artist and more accomplished as an individual,” Kolesnikova said.
The beautiful blonde has recorded eight CDs of original, classical and popular music.
To tell the truth, she believes that sharing the gift of music is her primary mission in life. She is not only passionate towards sharing her love of music, but also saves our environment and uses her status to help the cause.

Besides, her public recognition increased dramatically when she was erroneously identified internationally in the media as the romantic partner of actor and director Mel Gibson in 2009.
Kolesnikova was denying that she’s the woman that came between Mel Gibson and his wife Robyn. She was one of three Oksanas: Oksana Kolesnikova, Oksana Pochepa and Oksana Grigorieva.
“Sorry to hear about Mel Gibson’s spanorce. Somehow Oksana is being linked to Mr. Gibson, but there are no emotional ties between the two that I am aware of,” said Kolesnikova.
The media frenzy that followed created serious publicity and privacy issues for Kolesnikova, who was married to her manager, Alessandro Concas, for nine years and was four months pregnant at the time of the news stories.
