I'm Nikolai Valov. I'm a composer from Australia. I currently live in Sendai, Japan, where I teach English and Music.
I studied composition at the University of Oregon. During this time and since then, I've accumulated a lot of experience with composing music, entering and winning competitions, getting my music performed and forming a substantial contemporary classical music network. Need to get your music performed? Maybe I can help. Need advice on something you're working on, or just some help with theory for high school or college? I'm right here. Just starting out? Wondering what on earth micropolyphony or spectralism or whatnot is and how you can use it for your music? I'm your guy.
Let's work together and make you the best composer you can be!
