Studied music since 6 years old. Graduated from the School of Music in piano in 1994. While studying at the School of Music I hated to play the notes, so after the music school became interested in improvisation and free play on the piano. I worked with several teachers during my career as a musician.

Several years ago I realized that teachers around, can't contribute anymore, as a result, nearly 20 years devoted to the study of free improvisation and piano, of which nearly 5 years teaching.

Author of eight training courses for piano, several dozen video lessons of popular songs on Youtube channel, gaining hundreds of thousands views.
