I have a long standing relationship with classical music going back to my childhood when I started playing violin at the age of 5. I later studied also the piano as a second instrument and have attended music schools and institutions from the beginning of grade 1. I am an Australian musician born in Sofia (Bulgaria) and raised in Sydney, having subsequently lived in the Netherlands and Belgium, and back to my home country starting a new life in Melbourne. I have specialised in music at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music High School and obtained a Graduate Diploma in Music Performance at the Melbourne Conservatorium (University of Melbourne). Despite having digressed into other disciplines at times, including international and European Law (University of Amsterdam) and international relations (University of New South Wales), music has always found its way back to me. In the context of my career, I love nothing more than performing and teaching. My aim is to imbue my violin, piano and music theory students with the same passion, understanding and skills that I have been fortunate enough to acquire and continue to perfect.
