I am an experienced classical pianist and piano pedagogue specialising in piano technique and preventing pianists' occupational injuries. In addition, I held seminars, masterclasses and workshops on related subjects at various universities, music colleges and other educational institutions in London and Cork. As a soloist, I have given over 300 piano performances across the UK and Eastern Europe. Since settling in London in 1989, I have performed solo recitals and chamber music and accompanied opera singers in major concert halls across the UK and London, including Regent Hall, St John's Smith Square, and other music institutions. Further to my performing and teaching career, I am also Co-Founder and Managing Director of Around the Globe Music & Arts and AGPMF Piano Competition and Executive Editor of the annual Around the Globe Music Magazine and other publications. I have contributed to EPTA and ISSTIP journals and regularly write for the AGMA organisation.
As a child prodigy raised in Belgrade, I have won many national piano competitions in former Yugoslavia, followed by tours and media appearances, including TV and Radio Belgrade shows. I also won a federal grant to study further at the Moscow Music Conservatoire in 1979 with renowned Russian pianists and music scholars, including P.V. Messner, V. Saharov, E. Magilevski, A. Gavrilov and more. Furthermore, I continued my music education with a prominent pianist and professor Igor Lazko at the Belgrade Music Academy. I later obtained MAM at the City University in London, UK, in 1998 in the class of J. Gibb.
The articles about my work and performances appeared in the British press, including The Times, Rutland and Stamford Mercury, West Country Tribune, etc. I have been listed in the International Who's Who in Music and British and International Music Yearbook since 1994 and International Music Yearbook since 1996, Twenty Second Edition, London, UK.
