Roman was born in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova. He has played the saxophone since the age of six. When he was seven years old he received a saxophone scholarship from the virtuoso Alexei Litvin from Chisinau, President of the Philharmonic-Orchestra, and studied with him for the next ten years.
Over the next 10+ years of his career, Roman has participated in all kinds of national and international contests where he also won many awards. The most important one was being first at the International Festival of young Saxophone players, which took place at Sozopol (Bulgaria) when he was 18. After this achievement his parents decided to give him one of the best saxophones at the time, in order to master and perfect the sound of playing the saxophone. Only after this event, he realized and understood how deep his passion and love for music truly was. Although he also wanted to expand his knowledge of economics and therefore studied it for the next five years in Romania, he never neglected his passion for music.
