Piano: Nina Leonard Savicevic

Nina Leonard Savicevic
Nina Savicevic began her piano studies at the Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatoire in St Petersburg at the age of four. Galina Kulish was Nina's personal piano tutor. After just three months Nina performed in her first live piano concert.

Just a year later Nina moved to Exeter with her parents, as her father was a full time PhD student at the University. Nina's piano tuition continued with Caroline Diffley, who was working in the University Music Department - and also at Wells Cathedral School.

Nina participated in many local and national music competitions, winning several prizes, while also successfully completing her grade studies up to Grade VIII, which she was awarded in 2014. Nina also developed her skills on the viola and trained as a singer - while also playing tennis at county level.

When she was thirteen years old, Nina was awarded a scholarship to the Maynard School, and has since received a fully funded place as a Piano Specialist at Wells Cathedral School - where her academic and sporting abilities can also flourish.

Following a very successful GCSE year at Wells, Nina is now studying for A Levels and pursuing opportunities with Universities and Music Conservatories in the United Kingdom and Europe.

Last year Nina appeared on BBC Radio Devon with David Fitzgerald, and they plan to make another programme where Nina will perform piano pieces live for the listeners. Nina has also joined Victoria Graham and Justin Leigh on BBC South West, taking part in a live interview on BBC Spotlight.

Nina was also interviewed for an article by Deputy Head of Content for the "DevonLive" website Colleen Smith. Articles about Nina have also appeared in "Devon Life" and "Exeter Life" magazines.

Nina has competed in the BBC "Young Musician of the Year", and is in audition for the 2018 competition. We shall be seeing and hearing a lot more of Nina in the near future. Here in Devon (and further afield in the South West) there are several opportunities to hear Nina playing live piano recitals. Details are below.

After the lunchtime concert at St Stephen's Church on Friday 6 April, Nina will be strolling across Exeter High Street to the Phonic FM studios for a live discussion of her musical career on the "Classical Journey" programme. Listen out for a brief discussion by telephone with Nina at Wells Catherdral School on this Friday's 'Journey' (2pm Friday 23 March).
