About the Teacher

Igor Chystokletov was born on March 31, 1968, in Russia, the eldest of two sons of a conductor and singer.  He began his education in Primary Music School in Bratsk, Russia, at the age of six and gave his first public performance at age of nine. While studying at Bratsk Music School, Chystokletov participated in several Music contests for Young Pianists.  

In 1984, Chystokletov entered Secondary Music School in Vinnitza, Ukraine, where he was a student of Eleonora Titova.  At the same year he received the First Prize at the Soviet National Secondary Schools Professional Piano Competition in Chita, Russia. During that period of time Chystokletov played many concerts throughout Ukraine.  

After graduating from Secondary Music School in Vinnitza with a Diploma of Honor, Chystokletov entered the Odessa State Conservatory of Music where he studied under Professor Anatoly Kardashov.  While studying at the Conservatory, he won another prize at the Lom Music Festival in Bulgaria in 1988, which exposed him to the international area.  

In 1994, Igor Chystokletov graduated from the Odessa State Conservatory of Music with Master of Fine Arts Degree. The First State Examination Commission, a panel of judges, awarded him the qualifications of concert performer, chamber ensemble artist, teacher and concertmaster with highest mark for each specialty.  Igor's friendship with Prof. M. Udovenko also led to a rare opportunity during that time to acquire technical knowledge for piano tuning and maintenance, a skill that proved very useful on many occasions.  

By the time Chystokletov visited Vietnam after graduation he accepted an offer to teach Piano at the Ho Chi Minh Conservatory of Music as a chance to gain experience and settle down. In parallel, he was invited to head the Piano Club of the Kawai distributor in Vietnam, the Duc Tin Company.  Whilst taught professional piano student at the Conservatory, the Piano Club exposed him to pianists of all ages, nationalities and levels.  Many of his students from that Piano Club later pursued their education in Music Colleges and Conservatories of Music in Vietnam and abroad.  A few entered national competitions and became professional pianists.  

Igor Chystokletov's reputation at the Conservatory soon led to performance requests.  He played solo, with chamber ensembles and with orchestras in the best Concert Halls of Vietnam:
