About Me

Playing the horn is a great passion that has kept me and is keeping me on the road. I had the opportunity and I am still having it to learn this wonderful instrument from great masters and musicians who still inspire my life today. I had the opportunity to play with important orchestras such as the Philharmonia Zürich, the Musikkollegium Winterthur or the Collegium Novum Zürich and others where I was able to learn and test myself by comparing myself with musicians of the highest level and very heterogeneous repertoires. My goal is to share with students all that I have learned and that I am still continuing to learn.

Horn, music theory and piano classes for beginners.
Highly dedicated and passionate teacher. Age doesn't matter when it comes to learning, just enjoying it. Lessons for beginners to more advanced students. I like to play, sing and find the most creative solutions to learn quickly within a space reserved for the student's questions and imagination. As a musician I consider myself a very motivated person to always try new things. I also like to play from old music to contemporary music, so any style is welcome to try. During my Bachelor's training in Classical Horn I have trained in different educational skills techniques as well as in teaching ensembles and basic conducting. In addition to horn classes, I can also teach music theory and basic piano skills. I am very flexible with lesson times, so reaching a common point shouldn't be too difficult.

Piano and Horn Lessons from experienced musician and teacher
English and German speaking music teacher with many years of experience from beginner to tertiary level. My youngest student was four years of age but I also enjoy teaching adults. With piano lessons, we do a combination of note reading, music theory, improvising and with horn lessons we work on breathing and other technical aspects of brass playing. I would be very happy to help to prepare horn students for Hochschule entrance exams as well. I believe that one of the most important aspects of being a teacher is developing my students’ confidence as well as developing their ability to step out of their comfort zone. Therefore my students have always been encouraged to sit for exams and perform in concerts, competitions and music festivals. It has been wonderful to see the success my students have gained through these events; however the best thing has been to see how their confidence has improved as a result.
