INTERVIEW

1. What slogan would represent you and your art the most?  

 - Everything that cannot be a justice can be put across by Music.

2. What do you value the most in music?

 - It’s beauty and sincerity.


3. Many musicians say that they get to know themselves more and open own new talents because of your art…How the music influenced you?

 - Music taught me to be more disciplined, hardworking and tempered and, of course, Music inspired me to create and compose

 - Music for me is a safe haven where I can express myself and it is an essence of my life partially. 

5. Who are your idols?

  - I have no idols, but I can name first-class musicians, wonderful composers whom I admire.

6. If you weren't a musician, what would you be?

 -  Most likely, I would have been engaged with Medicine, for example, become a Doctor.


7. Do you think that musicians have all opportunities to become popular and successful in Kazakhstan (on globally)? Why?    

 -If you are a unique and first-class musician, you will be in demand and successful always and everywhere!

Success and relevance of a musician is firstly because of his talent and secondly it is a result of years of training, strong discipline, “ups and downs”. As P.Tchaikovsky said: "A composer is 90% of labor and only 10% of talent."

Becoming a successful musician depends only on the person himself if he wants to become a first-class musician, then he will give all his best, find any opportunities no matter what.


8. What is the ideal life for you as a musician?

 - Stay healthy and healthy relatives and friends around, to compose new music, perform, develop and express all my talent!
