Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. My goal is to instill a fine sense of music appreciation, while at the same time, teaching students about the technical aspects of music.
As a teacher, I am committed to providing the best teaching possible by giving my students a great start in their music journey through emphasizing the correct foundation for developing basic music skills.
During our one-on-one music classes, the teacher and the student set high-standards in preparing technique, repertoire, ear training, musical creativity, stage experience and a fine sense of music appreciation.
Even if you or your child never plays a note again after lessons end, you will not have wasted your money and time if you have learned how to allow Music to make your Life better and more fulfilling.
I strongly believe that Music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression.
I graduated from the "Gheorghe Dima" Academy of Music in 1991 (B.Mus), where I was later appointed as an Assistant Professor and, in 1998, as an University lecturer.
I also hold a Master in Music (2005 from the University of Western Ontario, London, ON) and a Ph.D. in Composition with a “Magna cum Laudae” (from the "Gheorghe Dima" Academy of Music, Cluj-Napoca, Romania).
I began playing the piano at the age of four, performing as a piano-soloist with an orchestra at ten, and writing my first compositions at twelve.
I have appeared as a piano-soloist with Romanian orchestras, in solo and piano-duos piano recitals.
Further specialization includes a Banff Residence, attending the Career Development Program.
My mentors and professors include Peter Paul Koprowski (U.W.O. Canada), as well as famous European composers, among them: Vasile Herman, Cornel Taranu, P. Krause, Eduard Terenyi, Aurel Stroe.
I am the recipient of many international awards and scholarships, among them, the Romanian Composers’ League Prize and the UNESCO award and scholarship, awarded in the '90.
In 2020 I was awarded by the Royal Conservatory of Music the Teacher Certificate of Recognition for the students' achievements - Gold medals at the Provincial level for their exams (level 3 and 4)
In August 2021, I became the recipient of the Gold Medal at the Inaugural Edition of the Global International Music Competition (in the Versatile Musician category), competition organized by Concours International de Musique et Des Beaux Arts.
I also became the winner of the Gold Medal at the Inaugural Edition of the Grand Maestro International Music Competition, and the recipient of the Gold Award in the Instrumental Performance - Best Music Composer category and also in the Instrumental Performance - Best Instrumental Performance Video at the Lit Talent Awards organized in the United States.
At the end of 2021 I became the winner of the Grand Prize at the International Youth Music Competition - in the category Composer/Performer, Singer/Songwriter and the recipient of the Gold Award and the Artist Award for the same ballade, in the open category at the Universal Music Stars Competition.
I was awarded the First Prize at the USA Artists of the Year International Music Competition held in December 2021 by IYMC.
