Marina Matkava

Marina’s love of music began when she entered a music school in her hometown of Kutaisi, in the Republic of Georgia at the age of six. She had one of the best music teachers who encouraged her to work hard and to always give the best performance that she could. After seven years of piano practices and recitals, her life took her far away from the music world.

Marina graduated from Tbilisi State University with honors and holds a Master’s degree in Journalism. She worked at the United States Embassy (USAID) and at many international financial companies. Five years ago she moved to the Bay Area with her husband and two kids.

Marina feels honored to have the opportunity to connect with music once again and become a part of the Inspire Academy team which helps students achieve both musical and personal success.


Our programs continue to inspire and challenge students to experience the joy of music, develop a lifelong love for the arts, and fully express themselves.
