What kind of experience do you have?
I started playing the classical guitar at the age of 7. Since then I've performed many times on stage (solo and also as part of a duo/trio/quartet/guitar ensemble and guitar orchestra). At the age of 13 I was accepted to study in National School of Music and Dance 'Dobrin Petkov' in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. This gave me the opportunity to expand my knowledge about the instrument and about music in general. I've taken part in a lot of guitar masterclasses/workshops. I've won 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize on various international guitar competitions. As well as an established performer, for the last 3.5 years I've been interested in teaching, sharing my knowledge and enjoyment of playing the guitar. I am currently a third year undergraduate student at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London.

Do you have a personal message for students?
I strongly believe that the teacher is the most important part of instrumental education since he/she is the one who inspires and motivates the students. A teacher should be able to make the kids love the instrument and the music they are making. This can only be achieved by being understanding and patient. Lessons should be fun for the students, so that they can develop their skills easier and quicker.

The reason why I am so passionate about music and especially about teaching the classical guitar is because I had such great professors who taught me not only how to play music, but also to enjoy doing it. This is something I am constantly trying to convey to my students.

I am more than happy to travel all around London and provide one-to-one classical guitar tuition to anyone who is interested and keen on the instrument.
