Raised in Slovenia, Europe, I earned my B.A. in Piano Performance at the University of Ljubljana, Academy of Music. In the last thirty years I have worked and motivated many children who performed in recitals, competitions, and at special events with great success. I have been lucky to further extend my education in Suzuki Method at Holy Names University in California under Caroline Fraser’s guidance, as well as at the Colorado Suzuki Institute. Teaching Suzuki Method has given me a great opportunity to work with very young children aged three and up, and with that, developing their potential to the best of their abilities.
Recently, I returned from a year of teaching Suzuki Method in Europe, where one of my students won first place at the National Piano Competition of Slovenia.
My students are encouraged to participate at various piano competitions, usually placing very high. Some have also attended international competitions and performed at Carnegie Hall in New York.
