In 1992, Ms. Magazinnik moved to Boston, MA, where she became active as a teacher, accompanist, and chamber musician throughout New England.  Ms.  Magazinnik served as a professor at the Northeastern University music department for sixteen years, and was a faculty member of the Brookline Music School for twenty-two years.  While in Boston, Ms. Magazinnik performed in a permanent duo with violinist Tamara Smirnova, Associate Concertmaster, Boston Symphony Orchestra, and Concertmaster, Boston Pops.  Her other performances included solo and chamber music concerts for the Graubart-Irving Concert Fund, Longy School of Music, New England Conservatory, and Martha’s Vineyard Chamber Music Society.  She worked as an accompanist for James Buswell and Marylou Speaker Churchill, of the New England Conservatory, and Roman Totenberg of Boston University, and performed many concerts with violinist Janet Packer, of the Longy School of Music.


During her time in Boston, Ms. Magazinnik was often invited to serve as judge for piano competitions throughout New England, including the prestigious Steinway Society Piano Competition.  In August 2016, Ms. Magazinnik moved to New Mexico and became a faculty member at the New Mexico School of Music.
