At the age of 5, Christophor was presented to the violinist Leonid Kogan. Following Kogan’s suggestion, he started studying the cello with his uncle, cellist Nikolai Polupan. At 15 he entered the Tchaikovsky Academy Music College in the class of Gayane Mndoyan and a year later became the youngest prize winner at the 14th Young Artists International Competition in Hungary. For the next seven years Christophor continued his education under the auspices of Natalia Shakhovskaya until his graduation from the Tchaikovsky Moscow Conservatory. In 2000, Christophor received his Artist Diploma from the Oberlin Conservatory in the United States, where he worked on it with Prof. Andor Toth.
