How did you decide to professionalize in music?
Emir Ilgen: When I went to primary school, I returned with the awards from international competitions. After I had the experience of performing with my piano student friends in the masterclasses and concerts I attended abroad, I decided to continue as a profession on the piano. With the guidance of my teacher, I became a full-time piano student at the Dokuz Eylül State Conservatory in İzmir. In this process, my biggest supporters were my parents and teachers.
