I believe first and foremost in teaching my students to become well-rounded musicians and individuals which is why I design my lessons individually for each student. This is exactly what I love about my work. Everyone brings something different to the table with their own interests, strengths and talents. It is important to me that music can become a personal expression that fits the person making it.

My experience includes time as a teaching assistant and accompanist for the Animate Project Orchestra, leading music workshops for classes in Key Stage 2 at schools of Greenwich, London, being a teaching assistant at the summer music school organised by Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and accompanying a musical production with the students of st.Bede’s College in Manchester. Working as a private teacher for 7 years, I learned the importance of adapting to every student’s individual goals and needs. My students have varied from 4-year-old beginners to adults wanting to pick up a hobby. While I teach in line with the ABRSM and Trinity exams (UK), I believe it is imperative to look beyond these systems and encourage students to explore other musical paths that will stimulate them both musically and creatively as people. I incorporate Suzuki and Kodály methods into my teaching, as well as analysis, theory, composition and aural work which I try to tailor for particular student’s needs.

I have an extended experience teaching piano, kids of an early age, youngest 3.5 years old, in which I have developed a different approach. My time as a piano accompanist for a Nursery school in Manchester  helped me develop teaching techniques for kids as young as 2.5 years.  Here kids learn about music, rhythm, they can explore different sounds and all this happens through games and activities that stimulate their interest and make them have fun but at the same time learn the fundamentals of the music world and build strong basis for their music/instrument journey. 

 I am also able to help students who might struggle with performance anxiety; the significance of performing with a healthy mind and body holds great importance for me with my students. For 4 years I was an employee of MENCAP and worked with people suffering from developmental disorders and mental illness problems. This enabled me to focus on a person’s unique needs and development.

Currently I offer lessons at my studio in Vienna and online. For inquiries write me on the Contact page.
