I am a Slovenian pianist, piano pedagogue and composer.
I studied piano at Academy of Music Ljubljana, Academy of Music Franz Liszt - Budapest and at Superior School for Music and Performing Arts - Porto (ESMAE). My most influential mentor was Milica Schneider. I also studied piano under the mentorship of László Baranyay, Vladimir Mlinarić, Madalena Soveral and collaborated with Aleksandar Madžar, Pavel Gililov, Arbo Valdma, Claudio Martinez Mehner, Henri Sigfridsson, and others.
I regularly perform as a soloist and chamber musician in various formations. I recorded for Slovenian Radio and Television and for Eurosclassical.
I worked as a piano professor and accompanist at nine pedagogic institutions in Slovenia and Portugal, including the University of Aveiro and the Conservatory of Music Porto, within the framework of which I organized the First 24-hour Piano Marathon in Portugal (2015). Since September 2015, I have been employed as a piano professor and accompanist at the First Gymnasium in Celje and the Music School Celje.
I complement my work with composing - my opus includes piano works (solo and duo), musical fairy tale, lieder, works for various chamber music formations (duo, trio, string quartet) and string orchestra. I also compose instructive literature for children and youth for various instruments. In 2017, EPTA Slovenia published my musical fairy tale Ožbi and Cumulonimbus. In 2022, I published two opuses of piano pieces for youth: Fairies, op. 13 and Fantasy pieces, op. 17.
Since 2016, I am a member of the Executive Board of EPTA – Slovenia (European Piano Teachers’ Association) and editor-in-chief of its piano magazine Virkla. In 2022, I became the vice-president of EPTA – Slovenia.
