 Development of the pianist


   My development path as a musician started not very early, at the age of 10. However, ever since the beginning, I gave a good account of myself as one of the most perspective students of the piano class in the music school in Storozhynets, Chernivetska Oblast, Ukraine, by winning the oblast theoretical olympiad (second place) and the competition of young pianists (also second place) in Chernivtsi.
    Upon completion of five year-studies in the music school, I entered the Chernivtsi State College of Arts named after S.Vorobkevych. During this period, I won the second  prize in the competition “New Names” in Chernivtsi and became the laureat of the instumentalists’ competition in the children camp “Artek” (Autonomous Republic Crimea).
     Since 2007, I have studied in the National Music Academy of Ukraine named after P.I.Tchaikovsky (NMAU). During the studies, I participated in numerous competitions in Ukraine and abroad. I won the second award in the competition of piano ensembles of NMAU, participated as a harpsichordist in the 20th Music Academy in Krakow, Poland. In 2009, I received the first prize in the international competition “Art of the 21st Century” in Vorzel, Kyiv Region. In 2010, I got the first award in the competition of young pianists in Lonigo, Italy. In 2011, I was granted with the state scholarship for the gifted people in the sphere of art and culture.
