Starting on the piano at the age of four, Stefan Melnychenko continued to complete his Level 10 in Piano from The Royal Conservatory of Music at the age of 15. He now plays nine instruments as well as sings; Music is Stefan’s life’s passion and for him the only thing better than playing is sharing his passion for Music with others, either through teaching or performance.
