About Me

I was born in Esztergom, Hungary, in 1975. I laid eyes on my first instrument, a beautifully carved Viennese Piano, when I came home from kindergarten one day. It was a present from my parents.

I began shortly after my studies at the very cosy music school of the town of Dorog, with my Teacher Éva Balázs. She introduced me to the world of music with much care and love. It is thanks to her that I gained acceptance into the exceptionally talented class of the Bartok Conservatory of Budapest.

During my years at the Conservatory, my professor, Gábor Eckhardt taught me one should only step on stage with enormous amounts of preparation and enough humility. Under his guidance, I participated successfully at various competitions and foreign concert tours.

  During my studies at the Music Academy, I had the chance to learn from world famous pianists László Baranyai, Jenő Jandó and Dénes Várjon.

In particular, I am extremely thankful that I could learn from Ferenc Rados, who is to me the greatest master of the profession. He had a great deal of influence on me, both professionally and as a person.

After my graduation from the Academy, I worked as a teacher at the Béla Bartók Conservatory and at the Franz Liszt Academy of Budapest.

After the birth of my children we moved to Switzerland.

My greatest passion is to give audiences an exciting experience as a Chamber musician and Soloist, along with my current work as a private music teacher.
