Unlike most teens, Maksim didn't have your typical high school education.
You see, Croatia was part of Yugoslavia until quite recently, and then a civil war broke out in 1990, when Maksim was 15.
So I guess he didn't have much of a chance to study in a "conventional" school.
As Yugoslavia was a communist country then, music wasn't exactly given lots of priority either, which is why he had to spend most of his music learning in the basement.
OverviewSpecialised Musical Education under Prof. Marija Sekso in Sibenik.

he's a qualified Piano teacher, but he can't teach because of his temper (as if he would need to.)
