PIANO I have been playing piano for 22 years, graduated in M.K.Ciurlionis art school, bachelor’s in Classical piano at Lithuanian Music Academy, master’s in Jazz at Prince Claus conservatory in the Netherlands and took private lessons from some of the best pianist in the world in New York (F.

COMPOSING I have recorded and self-released my own original music album ‘No Fear, Full Of Love’ with some of the best jazz musicians of today in New York in 2018. before that I released album ‘Recall’ (2015) that was recorded in the Netherlands which consists of originals and my arrangements.
I’m actively performing my music with my jazz quartet and now i’m working on my new soul/rnb/pop album where I write, sing and produce.
I wrote music for some spectacles and shortfilms.
• I value authentic, honest, personal music, and believe it has to be relevant, universal and executed at the highest level. • I believe that great results can only be achieved by having the best knowledge, best work ethics, constant research and lots of practice. • i like answering my own professional questions by trying and seeing what comes out. (like ‘can i play jazz?’, ‘can i sing?’, ‘can i record an album in NY?’) • can talk about performance psychology, how to learn, how to play piano, manage your career, time, write/perform/arrange/understand music.
