In 2000 year I'm enrolled to the College of Arts, woodwind department, in Gomel, Belarus. I performed wherever where was possible in the town-in Circus Orchestra, various 
festivals, events, concerts with various students bands and artists. In May 2004 year with the student Marching Band took part in the "parade of brass bands" in Clermont-Ferrand (France).

In 2004-2009 years studied at Belarussian State University of Culture & Arts, music department (sax), in Minsk, Belarus. For five years education I'm performed with many student jazz ensembles, bands, even in folk & hard rock groups. Nick Jazz Band, Student Pop-Symfonic Orchestra, Belarussian folk choir band, performing everywhere, constantly developing and improving performance skills.

In 2005 years with friends we create funk &
"Chiefs Band" and start playing in clubs, events, corporate celebrations and festivals:
Navara Jazz Festival (Minsk, 2005,2006)
Bass Day (Minsk 2006,2007)
Jazz Festival in Grodno, Belarus (2006,2007)
Winners of Students Jazz Festival "Festos", 
Moscow Russia (2007).

Accompanied Belarussian pop star Polina Smolova
and world pop star Demis Roussos (Minsk, 2008).

After graduated the University, I'm start working on cruise 
ships in various jazz & dance music bands:
SAGA Cruises (UK), Costa Cruises (Italy),
NCL (USA), Celebrity Cruises (USA).

I like playing different kind of music, including performing with DJ's, duos, trios or jazz quartet. I'm very love playing jazz music, improvisation is the largest component part of myself. I'm always on the lookout for a new harmonic, melodic and timbral sounds of saxophones
