Bozhidar Chapkanov, BA, MMus

Bozhidar is a classically trained pianist, composer and a music arranger. He started to play the piano at the age of six in his native Bulgaria. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in music from the University of Huddersfield, and a Master’s degree in composition from the National Music Academy in Sofia. As a postgraduate student he completed a semester at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna via a student exchange programme.

Bozhidar is aspiring to become a musicologist and he is currently undertaking a PhD research on Franz Liszt’s late piano music at City University of London.

“I was very happy to find Bozhidar as a piano teacher for my two sons. He can really engage them in the music making and he tailors the lessons to their individual needs. They make a good progress and still enjoy playing the piano.”
