About Me

I am a professional artist from the Czech Republic, currently living in Switzerland, I would love to get a chance to give my experience to the students of all age range. Not only how to read a music and touch the keys, as well as how to get rid of stress before playing in front of people, as well as how to manage your career as a musician. It is not just about playing, but also about the things connected to it. I would love to also make my students work with their emotions and whole body, while they play the piano, so they can express themselves better.

Ellen is a wonderful teacher! It has been many years since I’ve practiced, and she has been very helpful in guiding me back to proper technique. She is very kind, and her style of teaching focuses on playing pieces with feeling - it’s very nice.
Excellent teacher, highly recommend her
Ellen did a great job in teaching the piano and was able to quickly assess my skill level and came up with exercises to improve from that point onwards. Very professional and very pleasant! Thanks a lot Ellen.

Nicolas
Ukulelen unterricht / Ukelele lessons. Kanton und Stadt Zürich
Nicolás (DE) Gitarrenlehrer aus Buenos Aires, Argentinien. Als Gitarrenlehrer verfügt er über mehr als 15 Jahre Erfahrung und hat sich auf klassische Musik von der Renaissance bis zur Musik des 20 Jahrhunderts spezialisiert. Er hat auch Erfahrung in Tango, Jazz und Bossa Nova. In seinem Unterricht können Sie die Musik von Josquin des Prez bis zu Heitor Villa-Lobos kenner lernen, einschliesslich Piazzolla und The Bealtes. Er studierte an den wichtigsten Konservatorien in Buenos Aires. Er erhielt zwei Diplome als Lehrer und Hauptlehrer. Zurzeit absolviert er einen Masterstudiengang für Alte Musik (Instrumente der Lautenfamilie) an der Zürcher Hochschule der Künste. In den letzten zehn Jahren war er regelmässig als Solist und mit verschiedenen Ensembles in den grossen Konzertsälen der Stadt Buenos Aires zu hören. Er ist auch in Paraguay, der Schweiz und Italien aufgetreten. Im Jahr 2009 gründete er die Camerata Argentina de Guitarras (Gitarrist und künstlerischer Leiter 2009-2019). Im Jahr 2014 veröffentlichte er sein erstes Soloalbum "Morro de Saudade". Nicolás (EN) Classical Guitar Teacher from Buenos Aires, Argentina. He is currently living and studying in Zürich, Switzerland, doing a Master’s Degree program in early plucked string instruments at the ZHdK with Eduardo Egüez. He studied in Buenos Aires with Marcela Sfriso and Eduardo Isaac. As part of his training, he also took several courses and seminars with renowned guitarists, such as Pablo Márquez, Eduardo Fernández, Walter Ujaldón, and Miguel de Olaso. In the last ten years, he was featured regularly as a soloist and with different ensembles in the main concert halls in Buenos Aires city, such as CCK, Usina del Arte and Centro Nacional de la Música. He has also performed in Paraguay, Switzerland and Italy. In 2009 he founded the Camerata Argentina de Guitarras (guitarist and Artistic Director 2009-2019). In 2014 he released his first solo album "Morro de Saudade”. He has made national and international premieres of Latin-American composers such as Leo Brouwer and Javier Farías, with an ensemble and as a soloist. We can work in any kind of songs, strummings, fingerpicking, fingerstyle My classes are for: -Amateurs and advanced students. -Kids, young people, and adults. I can teach in English, Spanish, and High German. More about my classes My guitar teaching model is based on books and the approach of guitarist and pedagogue Abel Carlevaro. In some way, it is about understanding and analyzing the nature of the movements we make to play the guitar or ukelele in the simplest way possible. Just as to build a building you need a good foundation, to build a system of skills that allows us to be musicians, we need to know and practice in a conscious way all the movements we do. These movements are what we do when we play just one open string or what we need to do to play the most difficult piece of the repertoire. After getting to know and listening to how my students play I propose a short and medium-term work plan. This plan is presented taking into account the objectives and wishes of each student. Exercises and pieces are included that will also allow to know the repertoire of the guitar. Therefore, each work plan includes specific and general contents.
