Aleksandra Kirovska was born on June 19, 2001 in Skopje. She comes from a musical family and from an early age shows special affinities and a great gift for music. Her talent has been evident since she was 5 years old when she composed her first short compositions. Also at the age of 5 she enrolled in elementary music school and began studying solo and piano. During elementary education she won state and international awards. At age 11 she started playing guitar. From then till now she performs at a number of concerts, competitions, seminars, master classes with professors Srdjan Tosic, Slobod Milivojevic, Rosen Balkanski, Drilon Chocach, Niklas Johansen. In 2017, at the state competition, she was selected as the best instrumentalist-soloist with electric guitar. She has won first prize in Solfedio and guitar at national and international competitions. In 2019, she was selected as the youngest participant at the “Sarajevo International Winter Festival” in Sarajevo and her concert received great reviews. That same year she wins first prize at the international competiton “Полихимнија”. She makes her guitar arrangements by herself, and last year she began composing his own guitar compositions.

She is currently attending fourth year in DMBUC “Ilija Nikolovski Luj” in Skopje in the class of Prof. Borce Naumoski. Alexandra completely, stunningly, suggestively, impressively put into perspective the sum of the components of complete mastery of the concert scene, of the psychophysical but above all, of the memory-performing challenge to make music in the most essential segment called creative. She is in great sync with her performing imagination, with an excellent and cultivated degree of technicalism to the specifics of this instrument. And all this accomplished and achieved only at the age of 18.
