My name is Ariana Piknjač and I was born in 1995 and raised in Sydney, Australia. Since I come from a musical family, my musical story began when I was aged just 3 years and 9 months starting with piano lessons.
I am currently studying two fields of study at the Music Academy in Sarajevo with the highest grades out of 23 subjects overall: Flute Performance in the class of prof. Sakib Laèeviæ and Music Theory and Education. I have performed at various concerts in different countries and have worked with various music professors from Austria, Serbia, Australia, Italy, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary, Russia and Switzerland.
I honorarily play with the Sarajevo Philharmonic Orchestra occasionally and have participated in Federal music competitions in the disciplines of flute, choir and chamber music being awarded first prizes.
I also really love teaching all levels of playing, as it is one of my biggest passions!
I currently teach Flute, Piano and Solfeggio at Mali Mozart School in Sarajevo and am very honoured to be a member of the teacher team at PlayWithAPro.com where I teach flute online to people from all over the globe.
I enjoy experimenting with music through a combination of creativity and innovation, which has resulted in this video that my friend and I filmed, and Classic FM uploaded us onto their Facebook page! The video has currently 2,3+ million views. I am the one playing the piano and flute at the same time. Enjoy!
