He took up piano lessons first but then decided to play violin after starting school.[1] At the age of ten, he performed with the Rostov Philharmonic Orchestra the Violin Concert No. 22 by Gioivanni Viotti.[2]

At the age of fourteen Boriso-Glebsky graduated to the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory to the violin division by Professor Eduard Grach and Associate Professor Tatiana Berkul. When he was studying at the conservatory, he took part in the Keshet Eilon Summer Mastercourses in Israel, under the guidance of Ida Haendel and Shlomo Mintz. Furthermore, the young violinist had started playing in the Moscovia Chamber Orchestra and consequently passed all stages up to the concertmaster position.[3]

In 2005 he started on postgraduate studies and research on the English violin music from the nineteen and twentieth centuries. He also took courses outside Russia, particularly by Augustin Dumay in the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel, and by Ana Chumachenco in the Kronberg Academy. In Belgium Boriso-Glebsky was given for performing the violin II Patti by Antonio Stradivari that let him take part in prestigious contests further.[4]
