When Ludmilla first arrives in America in 1947 she tries to restart her piano career by seeking a university teaching position. Her first position was that of piano teacher at Marymount College.

She then captures the attention of Dr. Clarence Adler, a founder of the Piano Department at Julliard. Dr. Adler arranges concerts for Ludmilla at the Harvard Club, Town Hall, the prestigious Lotos Club and the Brooklyn Museum Radio Series.

She also performs as soloist in the piano concertos of Mozart, Rachmaninoff and Chopin with symphonies in the New York area. One of Ludmilla's specialties is her live concert performance of all twenty-four of Chopin's Etudes -- a remarkable feat!
