I graduated from the Novosibirsk State Conservatory (class of Professor M. Lebensohn) and did postgraduate studies in chamber and contemporary chamber music at the Higher School of Music in Saarbrücken (class of Professor T. Mokatsian, E. Brunner). I have many accolades: Scholarship holder of the Ministry of Culture of Russia, DAAD and a Laureate of international competitions (2004 Vienna, 2007 Prague, 2006 Rom, 2005 Novosibirsk). I recorded a CD on Saarbrücken radio. I taught at the Conservatoire du Nord and Music School. Also, I successfully completed projects at the Philharmonic of Luxembourg.
