Trough ages, since I was little boy, music was my main occupation. At the age of five, I chose the accordion as my favourite instrument and guide trough its art. As time was passing, I changed little classroom with stage, and, step by step, it become life I want to live without ending. I discovered opportunities music gives to every passionated musician as traveling, meeting new people, playing in new halls, with one and only duty - to LEARN whole your life.
The intstrument I chose is, nowdays, one of the most interesting for composers and both in chamber and solistic music. Most of modern literature is written for accordion.
Concerts and competitions are inevitable part of my music life. Thanks to that, I've met many great artist and professors and played in many countries in Europe. But my dream is not just Europe, but the whole world with many new acquaintances, concerts and collaborations. I'm always looking forward to new adventures and travels trough (music) world. So, let continue...
My music will tell you about me more than I ever will. ”
