Being Georgian is about being defiant and free-spirited. Curly red hair helps too! I have never accepted the obvious and ordinary. Let me guide you on a musical journey, expand your frame of reference, and help you raise your performance and enjoyment of piano to a new level while we talk Tbilisi. Personally, I greatly enjoy 20th and 21st century music, daring pieces of modern spirit. Learn more about my and my sister's work at www.zhvaniasisters.com.
I have been playing piano since I was 5 years old, and music runs deep in my family. I studied musical performance at R. Schumann Hochschule, Dusseldorf; at HMT Hanover; at New York University; and at the Tbilisi State Conservatoire, where I am now the Dean of Performing Faculty and Associate Professor. I speak English, German, Georgian and Russian.
