She started studying music when she was 7 years old. She then followed intensive courses in music theory, ear training (including note-reading and solfeggio), piano, voice, music history, choir direction, musical harmony, folk music, counterpoint and vocal interpretation. She completed her pre-conservatory training by sitting for a professional examination in the disciplines of music theory and ear training skills and music history, followed by a baccalaureate examination.
Ligia attended the College of Music at Ovidius University in Constanta, Romania. Her major was Music and Vocal Interpretation of Music. In 2004, she successfully completed an official licensure examination that consisted of research work and vocal interpretation and she obtained her official degree at the George Enescu University of the Arts in Iasi, Romania.
Ligia has published a beginner’s piano method book in June of 2007. It’s a new way to teach children piano, using waysÂ she has found to yield the greatest results through her experience. The book was published in Romania and it is called “Pasi in Lumea Muzicii”, which means “Steps in the World of Music”. Here is the book cover:
