Musical styles or qualities that I do not like:

Undergraduate student at St-Petersburg State University majoring in Tagalog philology. The main subject of my studies are Philippine musical instruments, especially those associated with performances of epics. I also provide language acquisition help for foreigners in St-Petersburg on a private basis.
Other musical activities:
I am one of these countless guys who "play guitar in a local band".
Hobbies / obsessions:
Ehm.... Music, what else? Well, philosophizing on daily matters, perhaps.
