Music has been Monta's passion since early childhood, when she started studying vocals and piano at the Valmiera School of Music. From the age of 17 Monta seriously committed to improve her skills as a vocalist and since then she has amassed a lot of experience and knowledge from attending workshops by various musicians and teachers. Additionally, her skills as a stage artist are demonstrated by successful participation in competitions both in Latvia and abroad. Already in early age Monta was captivated by jazz music so she committed to the genre during her studies at RPIVA University. However, pop and rock have been a fascination of hers as well and she had a chance to express it through participation in the band Body and Soul and in a duet with the guitar player Toms Cers.
