Ieva's Story

Ieva Dubova is a Latvian-born classical pianist currently living in London



Before all the big names I could put here I will be honest- my first influence is my grandmother - Zaiga Dubova.
She was a classical pianist and a teacher.
I grew up with her and she taught me all about music, art and literature and all other influences I have, I have only gotten to know because of her.



My story begins in Cesis, Latvia.
As a child I loved nature and stories, loads of stories. I had an immediate love for piano since I can remember myself. It was my escape and best friend. My story telling partner. I used to plan to run away with my cat and my piano and live in the woods. I was 6 at the time, it might have not been the brightest idea I ever had.

Being able to engage people with your love for music and being able to share it. I think that is the ultimate gift if one can spend their life exploring, learning absorbing and sharing as much music as possible and to be able to fully commit to it, that is the ultimate success for me.
