Ewa Kupiec, Jonas is currently pursuing his master's degree at the University of Music Trossingen, in the class of prof. Ingo Dannhorn. Since 2009, Jonas has become a prizewinner of more than fifteen competitions in Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus, Austria, and France, he was also a laureate of the Klaipėda Piano Masters summer academy three years in a row (2017–2019) and was supported by the Copenhagen International and Ballerup Sct. Jacob Rotary clubs during the study years in 2017-2018. Most recently he has won the second prize in the IX International Stasys Vainiūnas Piano Competition in Vilnius (2022) and the DAAD Prize (2023).
