In 2016, he completed composition training with Prof. Tolga Zafer Özdemir at Istanbul Bilgi University. Since that time, he ameliorated his piano technique with Prof. Vassilia Efstathiadou in Hannover as her private student and took part in several master classes in Croatia, Crete, including GFA (Gümüşlük Festival Academy) with Concert Pianist Gülsin Onay, Prof. Konstanze Eickhorst, Pianist Francesco Libetta.

He is a passionate musician questing after true knowledge regarding ancient roots of harmony by seeking for both esoteric and scientific thinking ambits.
