’A true artist works every single day, every hour of his existence, all his life, because he cannot live without creativeness’
I have been working in performing arts for quite a while wearing many hats as a pianist, song writer, music educator, playwright, director, producer employing my creative vision in various forms both in Europe and Australia. I see things differently, for me creativity is not a thing it is a way of doing things.
My creative path began with my teaching career. For me teaching is a platform – to create, learn and improvise both for children and adults. Teaching became an inspiration to transpose my visual imaginings onto paper that later evolved into music compositions and stage plays.
The earliest forms of theatre work I created were short musical plays crafted specially to be performed by school students. But with an overwhelming positive response, I was encouraged to consolidate and expand the materials into full-length staged productions performed at the local festivals, Sydney Fringe and Bondi Theatre Festival, that targeted family audiences.
My creative pursuits have been accompanied by extensive education with double Bachelor’s degree in Education and Arts from Moscow Russia, and Master’s of Linguistics (University of Sydney) and Master’s of Music ( Australian Institute of Music).
I am a music educator, theatre practitioner, facilitator, and creator of vibrant content with educational insights and life messages for children and adults alike.
Encouraged by feedback of community and industry professionals I continue my creative journey every day working on new projects, refining current ones, bringing my creative ideas to life that I believe may have a valuable benefit for public.
