Tina Laliachvili : The song has ended but the melody lingers on

We are deeply saddened by the loss of Tina Laliachvili, who unexpectedly passed away early on Thursday the 29th of July 2021.

“A great soul serves everyone all the time. A great soul never dies. It brings us together again and again.” – Maya Angelou

Tina has been a pillar of our school and part of the Shine musical family for many years. Loved by both staff and students alike.

Tina studied music in Russia for 16 years, completing her studies at a music conservatory in Georgia with Manana Neldze. She taught professionally for over 25 years, specializing in classical piano. She has been a valued teacher at the Shine School of Music for over a decade where she instructed our students in piano and prepared learners for exams.

Tina had a passion for teaching and enjoyed imparting her many years of experience with students. Tina was both kind and dedicated to sharing her love of music, she will be sorely missed by those that knew her.


“Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts. “

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends during this difficult time.


If you wish, please leave a message or memory of Tina in the comment section.

Truely saddened by your passing. Condolences to the family. Rest in peace Tina you will be missed

I will forever cherish our conversations. Never a dull moment with you.. Thank you for the impact you have made on my son’s life and our family as a whole. Sad we never got to barbecue like we had planned. Farewell wonderful Soul .

  7. Dear Tina, after 30 years I rediscovered piano with you, I will play Chopin’s Revolutionary for you, “slowly,slowly” until I get it….you taught me to imagine the picture, to tell a story as I play, you believed in me and so I could believe in me too. I cherished our lessons, I will cherish my memories of them with you, I will miss you always. Thank you for your love and kindness, your smile, your giftedness, and your generosity. You are loved Tina.

  8. Since I received the news of your passing this afternoon Dear Tina, I have been gathering strength to jot my emotions. I am deeply saddened by your departure. I still remember our last telephone conversation early this week. Your love and kindness is engraved in our hearts. We’ll miss you so much. When a cherished friend leaves us through death, we feel cheated in life. Life doesn’t play fair, so Larryn and I vow to continue on this musical journey and excel for you and for us. God be with you, till we meet again.

  9. Tinushka, my dearest friend, since we met, you gave me all your warm heart and now my heart is broken,because i’m not gonna see you again,you never will call me,this is so so sad
    You are great person and musician ,you are my inspiration !!!
    Rest in peace,my dear friend,Tinushka,,I will never forget you, and you are in my soul !❣
    God bless🙏

  10. It is sad news indeed for someone with such a great presence of personality to leave us like this. I was still waiting for the day we’d play that duet together Tina. I was never your piano student, yet my encounter with you showed someone who is more than just a musician but a complete human being. You will surely be missed.

  11. Dearest Tina

    It is difficult to process that you have departed this life so suddenly and without warning. I’d have been about to sit at my piano and practice a few notes before heading to a lesson any other Saturday. I will miss you deeply. You were both a teacher and a friend to me. I learnt so much about music from you, yet we also laughed and shared ideas about life at large every lesson. You were such a kind and social person too – I will so miss group trips to the theatre and popping around for your amazing khachapuri from time to time. I can only imagine that a person who found such easy joy in the simple things in life – music, friendships, celebration and good food – will be a soul at peace. Rest easy my friend…

  12. Dearest Tina, our hearts are still burdened by your departure. You had a heart of gold and truly saw the depth of a person. You brought the passion of piano into my 5 year old and she was completely shattered when I had to tell her she would not have the pleasure of being in your presence again. Know that you forever remain in our hearts, and more-so hers. Thank you for the impact you’ve had on her little life, that I know will be long-lasting. Heaven has truly gained an angel.

  13. I’m out of words to express how it affected me when I heard the news. I’m grateful to you for every moment you spared for me, for every kachapuri you let me taste, for every note that you shared with me for that one time we were on stage together, and for every time we bumped into each other in hospital cues. Your huge, generous heart helped so many, I’m grateful I knew you
    This made us all extremely sad
    Thank you


  14. I’m so saddened by this news, Tina was an amazing music teacher and I feel luck to count her as a colleague. I will treasure the memory of teaching next door and performing at student concerts together. Your warmth and kindness will stay with me always. We will miss Tina always.

    with a heavy heart;
