I dream to compose my own music (both full-length operas and pop-music) – write them, play them on the violin and also sing them! I also dream to write film music.  I dream to make collaboration with world famous Opera Theatre´s and I also like Disney, I dream to make a lot of interesting collaborations with talented people! I wish to build my own music wonderland and make magic! But mainly I try to grow myself as a person, as a violinist, as a musician. I hope to make the world a better place with music because music is the voice of my soul & music is the strongest form of MAGIC!
