Anastasia Rizikov

12-year old Anastasia Rizikov demonstrates poise and talent on the piano. Rizikov was born in Toronto, Canada, and she studies with an award-winning piano teacher Maia Spis, who has a Masters in Music Education from Ukraine and currently teaches at the Nadia Music Academy in Toronto.

Rizikov has played piano since age five, and her grandmother first taught her to play. She remembers listening to music constantly, finding inspiration there to start playing. Today, she loves playing Chopin, which she has played since around age 6, and enjoys showcasing some of his lesser-known works. She starts getting nervous during the first few measures, but says, “suddenly, I just forget everything” and becomes a part of the music. “I’m glad I wasn’t anywhere else,” she says.
