Q

What jobs can you have after getting a music major.. Is it even stable?


Elizaveta responded on 03/02/2013
A

Nothing is ever stable. The truth is - the more you hope to be stable, the more you set yourself up for potential disappointment. Life is not stable - it flows, changes, takes a left turn and before you know it, you are not where you expected to be at all. And maybe it's for the best! What I would say is: find a way to be happy with what you are doing, whether you make money or not. If you are happy, doing something every day, money will come - maybe not a whole lot, but just enough. If you are unhappy and unfulfilled, stability is not going to make you feel better. That is just my opinion, however. I think my mom disagrees:) As far as a music major goes: it depends. If you are majoring in an instrument or performance/composition, yes it's worth it. If it's music business, IMO, forget it - best way to learn about that is from actively working, engaging with artists and getting experience. In the meantime, you can also get a business degree, if you want, because it's useful.

Q

Will you ever come to the Midwest? Preferably Minnesota? (:

A

Yes! Definitely. Hopefully late this summer/early fall. I have already been to Twin Cities, they are very beautiful.

Q

Почему вы не запишите альбом на русском? И Почему с такими данными вы начали свою большую карьеру именно в Америке? У вас очень сильный голос, и таких в России на самом деле мало
Ваш поклонник Алексей

Здравствуйте Алексей! Спасибо большое за доброе слово:) Я как раз сейчас работаю над первым выпуском на русском. Пять или шесть песен, все написаны мной. Я не знаю почему так получилось, но теперь наступил момент и я буду выпускать, записывать и выступать в России. Кстати, у меня концерт в Москве 8ого марта. Все детали на сайте. Приходите!

Q

I love your voice and your range. How old were you when you realized you had talent?


Elizaveta responded on 03/02/2013
A

thank you, darling. In Russia we say: ' Talent is not a beard, it doesn't grow by itself', haha. I think I realized what I liked doing most when I was very young. Whether I thought it was talent or not, I don't know. Maybe later. I think for me with that realization came the fear that I may not be able to live up to it. I still experience it, often.

Q

What are your New Year's Resolutions?


Elizaveta responded on 03/02/2013
A

I am extremely late in responding to this question,but maybe it is a good thing because it allows me to remember my resolutions and see where I am at now. My resolutions were the same as the year before: work harder, make more music, be healthier (do sports), be a better person, stay out of the comfort zone whenever I can and not avoid things that scare me. I think I am not quite there yet:) but I have good hopes...

Q

Hi, I would love to see you perform. Do you have any plans to come to Chicago? If not, will you make some?


Elizaveta responded on 03/02/2013
A

Last time I was in Chicago was for the Lollapalooza festival. I loved it. It was very hot, though. I am hoping to do a tour this summer/fall, and will definitely include Chicago on the list. I would love to also spend more time there, exploring the music scene...

Q

I donated money for you to go visit your mom a few years ago but never heard if you did actually got to visit her. I hope you did and that she is doing great. Nelson.


Elizaveta responded on 03/02/2013
A

hi Nelson! At the time I didn't get to go... I didn't raise enough $, but what I did was actually wire money to her, for health expenses. Thank you so, so much for your help and support. I don't know where I would be now without fans and friends such as yourself.
