 One Caucasus: How and when did your musical path start ?

Piotr Melech: It's a long story...Many years ago I heard a duet of a clarinetist with a double bass in front of a bar in Brussels. The sound of the clarinet charmed me enough that I decided to become a clarinetist. Well, I am now! There were many years of practice, playing on the streets and later  playing in bands. I have been playing for 18 years. I really love it!


One Caucasus: Did you go to study somewhere or tried to learn playing musical instruments yourself?


Piotr Melech: I have learned to play myself I started quite late when I was about 23. There were many such hardships on my way: from bying very good instruments to obstacles which were related to work by my own methods or other workshop problems.


One Caucasus: I see, but what did help you to keep motivation and to not give up on your way ?


Piotr Melech: I never had problems with motivation)) Well, some people really give up on the way to their dream but not.
