The school and teachers

  I was born in the village Otradnaya, Krasnodar Territory on 28 June 1974. Parents Serge and Raisa worked in anti-hail squad. Childhood in the village Spokojnaya, there I graduated from music school (teacher Demetrius Zhevakin). In 1986 the family moved to village Otradnaya, and 3 years I studied  in Otradnaya music school (teacher Alexander Mamonov), also received a certificate of completion from the school. During solfeggio lessons (teacher Rose Berezhnova) I found myself with a absolute pitch.

  In 1989 I entered the Stavropol music College (teacher of Alexander Markov, the winner of the competition of accordion players of the USSR) and finish with honors the College (teacher Valery Kolesnikov ). In College years I'm starting to compose music. I start writing transcriptions for accordion, ensembles, and thanks to the lessons of polyphony I wrote two Toccatas and fugues (teacher Valerie Peresypkina). Also I'd love to visit harmony and solfege  (teacher Nelli Zharikova) and bought in stores records with symphonies and operas, to prepare for the quizzes on the history of music (teacher Evgeniya Stolyarova). Communication with Theodore Alekseev, Andrew Abramov, Victor Kamyshnikov, Constantine Savtsov, Valerian Mintsev, Lydia Maslova, Vladimir Chernyavsky, and many other wonderful musicians of Stavropol helped me develop my creativity and expand horizons. The 3rd year started working in College as an accompanist in the Department of folk singing and in the Palace of Pioneers in the ensemble "Spring" under the guidance of my teacher Vyacheslav Volkov. He's my parents purchased for me an accordeon "Jupiter", this was a tangible impetus to training in the specialty.

  In 1993, I entered the Rostov State Conservatory named after S.V. Rakhmaninov (professor Lyudmila Varavina, honored worker of Higher school of the Russian Federation). Highly professional and demanding Conservatory teachers supported me in the quest to study and learn, and I'm happy to have done their homework! Classes in music history (professor Kaloshina Galina, Doctor of arts), harmony (professor Evelina Struchalina) and conducting (professor Oleg Zubchenko) stimulated my composer beginnings, also welcomed my composer beginnings and Lyudmila Varavina. From 1996 to 2001 working in the ensemble "Doncy"  (director Alexander Kolontaev, Honored artist of Russia) in the Rostov regional Philharmonic society, give concerts around the country and abroad. In 1997, in my program at the III International competition of performers on folk instruments "Cup of the North" in city Cherepovets included 2 of his own composition: Sonata No. 1 and Paraphrase to the theme of the Russian folk songs "I was going to the hill", where I became the winner of III degree.

  After graduating from the Conservatory, in 1998, I continued my education in graduate school (scientific director, professor Lyudmila Varavina, honored worker of Higher school of the Russian Federation) and joined the faculty of the composition (professor Anatole Kusyakov, People's artist of Russia). Under the guidance of Anatole Kusyakov appear my compositions for the accordion with another instrument: Divertimento for clarinet and accordion,  Fantasy for bassoon and accordion, Sonata for viola and accordion etc. This is not surprising because Anatole Kusyakov saw the future of the accordion in an ensemble performance! With a light application of Lyudmila Varavina appear plays: Waltz, Polka, Ghost, etc., and during the lessons of polyphony (professor Galina Gontarenko) appears Humoresque, composed in the genre of inventions and fugues.

  In 2001 we with Lyudmila Varavina hesitant to publish my musical compositions, and launch the project "Premiere". It is a series of editions of compositions for accordion, composed by me, edited by Lyudmila Varavina. To date, there has been 5 editions of this series. From 2002 to 2008 give concerts for tourists on ships in various structures of the ensemble. In 2004 after graduating from the Conservatory, I enrolled in graduate school on a faculty composition (scientific director, professor Anatole Kusyakov, People's artist of Russia). In the same year began working as an accompanist at the music school No. 3 named after M.I. Glinka of the city of Rostov-on-Don, where I work currently. In 2006 at the I Moscow open competition of young composers behalf of Y.N. Shishakov my compositions Symphonic picture for accordion and chamber orchestra "Monastery on mount Kazbek" and Sonata for viola and accordion took first place in nominations "solo instrument" and "ensemble". 

  Since 2009 are the accompanist of the Department of folk song at the Rostov State Conservatory named after S.V. Rachmaninoff.
