Being one of the demanded composers and a musical expert, Leonid lives and works in Moscow, though his hometown is Ryazan. His first musical steps and success, which followed them, took place in this small town. When he was still a boy, he became the winner of the First Award of the Regional Competition of "Young Composers".
When Leonid was 12, he moved to Moscow to master new musical forms, gain skills and knowledge under the sensitive guidance of the best teachers of the capital, and working independently.
In 1999 he was admitted on a grant basis to a “Private School of Music" so called “Inspiration Sources" (composition course of Vladimir Dovgan). Then he entered the State Musical College of the Gnesins and graduated from it in 2008, studying the course "The Theory of Music" (composition course of Pyotr Klimov, but he also continued his course with Vladimir Dovgan too). The next step in his education was Moscow State Conservatory of P. I. Tchaikovsky (Composer faculty) from which Leonid graduated with “Honor Degree" in 2014.

I am convinced that music – it's a lifestyle, and a musician is a mission. If you do not give all your soul to music, music will ‘hide“ some pearls from you too. Therefore, even in the rare hours of rest, I often do not leave music: I play the piano, guitar or other musical instruments such as flute, ethnic instruments of various nations of the world, such as bass or drums. I attend concerts or perform myself. In addition, I study the world of sound, do records. Tired of doing it, I prefer reading, walking outdoors, visiting various cultural events. I adore cinema. To write music for films is what makes me so overjoyed and blissful. I hardly draw the boundary between work and rest, because everything I'm doing at the moment, gives me great satisfaction and inspiration.
