I have been playing classical guitar since 2001. Between 2005 and 2009, I have studied in Hacettepe University Ankara State Conservatory half-time Classical Guitar Program. It’s a four-year certificate program teaching classical guitar, music theory and solfège, and the level is roughly equivalent to high school education. I had the opportunity to study with some of the best classical guitarists, such as İskender Özçelebi, Fatih Yazıcı, Soner Uluocak, Mary Akerman and Ahmet Kanneci.
Since 2005, I have been teaching classical guitar and regularly playing in concerts. I have a wide repertoire from baroque music to modern and Anatolian folk. I have also played pop music in small bands, making my own arrangements.
During my undergraduate studies in Middle East Technical University, I was also a member of Middle East Technical University Classical Society. In the society, I had played in numerous concert, had taught classical guitar from beginner to intermediate level. I was a board member between September 2005 and October 2007, and got involved in organizing two of the METU International Classical Guitar Festival, one of the most prestigious classical guitar events in Turkey.
