I started playing piano when I heard how my sister was practising scales which was simply fascinating to me. That day I made a promise that music will lead all my life and I will never stop playing. I remember how laudly she laughed at me but here we are twenty years later.
After finishing music school I felt stuck in the music world: my friends were musicians, I spent all my free time in the classroom, my whole life was scheduled from one competition to another. I felt that I am missing something that is why I have decided to take a break from playing and performing in order to fully experience life. I traveled around the world, lived in foreign countries, learned a new language, tried whitewater rafting, horseback riding, photography, etc. As a result, my whole life became way more interesting and meaningful.
In the piano compositions I try to break barriers between genres, styles, expectations. It feels great to experiment and simply have fun. In 2019 I came back to piano from sheer willingness to discover. It was just a pure joy to reconnect with music as an old friend and bring my life experiences to the table.
