I started playing guitar in the city of Baku, Azerbaijan. At the age of 13, I received my first guitar lesson from teacher Sergey Yunash. This meeting and continued work with him, helped me decide to become a musician.

In 1981 I graduated from the Dnepropetrovsk Metallurgical Academy and I worked as an engineer for a while. I couldn’t forget the guitar so in 1993 I graduated from the Minsk College of Music (Belarus) in the “Jazz Guitar” class.

My career as a teacher began in 1988 at the Music School in Nikopol (Ukraine).

I have been teaching guitar playing for more than 30 years, and I also professionally arrange works for guitars. I use my arrangement both for educational purposes and in my concert repertoire.

My works have been used by my students.

Many of them have continued their studies in music colleges and academies of Ukraine and Europe.
