Roughly 8 years ago, Omer Shaban was just a shy little kid who started showing interest in a very fascinating instrumentwhile listening to his grandfather Kadri Bedzeti play—the clarinet. Omer started playing at the age of 7. He then started going to Skopje’s primary school for music. After joining the Roma Rock School family, Omer learned a great deal, improving his musical and band skills, teamwork, confidence, and most importantly, he realized the importance of music in peoples’ lives as a form of self expression. Inspired by all that he learned, Omer decided to continue his musical education and applied to Skopje’s music high school Ilija Nikolovski Luj, passing the preliminary exam with the help of our teachers. We are so proud of him!
