Nikolai Rybin was born in Moscow. Music surrounded him right from the early childhood. His granny sang him Mozart’s lullabies and put on classics on the CD’s. Nikolai started to sing even before he said his first word. He’s singing literally everywhere.
At the age of 5 Nikolai moved to London and entered UK school. In the beginning of his education he was introduced to classic pieces, because he started to take violin lessons. And after that, his musical world only grew bigger. When Nikolai turned 8 years old, he became interested in the work of Andrea Bocelli, Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and watched the concerts recordings of the great tenors on youtube. Nikolai learnt pieces from their repertoire by heart and began to take professional classes in singing. His vocal teacher is Alexia Mankovskaya. At 9 years old he won his first singing contest in the UK with the song “The walking in the air”.
