He proceeded with undergraduate studies at the Moscow Conservatory (class of Professor Yuri Slesarev), once again completing his degree with honors. He continued at the Moscow Conservatory as a post-graduate student, and is on the teaching faculty of the Moscow Conservatory’s Piano Department. In 2016 he accepted Yale University’s invitation to fulfill the Artist Diploma program under the Yale School of Music’s Professor Boris Berman.
