Permanent classes of drawing, sculpture, calligraphy and wood curving gave the future master an understanding of the shapes and proportions as well as the feeling of materials and design. When he was six his parents bought him his first flute as a present. Since then, Alexander does not see his life without music, woodwind instruments have become a passion for his whole life. After he graduate Moscow Academy of Fine Arts and became a member of Moscow Artist Union Alexander started his own business as professional pipe and flute maker.
