In 2010, he entered the Ufa College of Music, specializing in bass guitar. Acquainted with the famous Ufa jazzman Jalil Mukhametshin-Farber, Artyom finally decided the double bass to be his main instrument. Since 2015, he has been studying at the Gnesins Russian Academy of Music in the class of Yevgeny Onishchenko.
