Our teachers

I graduated as a pianist in 2013, and as a piano teacher in 2014 at the Liszt Academy of Music. I have participated in numerous competitions and masterclasses, I regularly play at concerts. I started teaching in the music school – where I work as an accompanist and a piano teacher – in 2013 with great enthusiasm and care for my students. I am also an accompanist at the Béla Bartók Secondary School of Music, Instrument Making and Repair. I teach in Hungarian and Japanese. I have been shaping my own method by applying the knowledge and experience I have acquired in the musical trainings and class visits in both countries. My goal is to help the young get to like and understand music.

I strive to utilize the special possibilities of music education in my teaching. The influence of music on the personality, the many experiences the children can have may thus stay with them for life. To quote Kodály, ‘Whoever starts life with music, their every activity will be brightened by her later, and they are given a treasure of life which sees them through a lot of troubles.’

After having graduated as a pianist and piano teacher, I was a piano teacher and accompanist at the Kodály School at Marczibányi square for a good ten years. Returning from the period spent at home after my two children were born, I have been teaching at the Leopold Mozart Music School since 2020. One of my favourite areas is teaching children of 4–6 years; I developed its unique methodology in an art kindergarten.

My element is diversity, development, and openness to new knowledge. I have been an active participant of numerous national and international courses and vocational trainings in music.

I graduated as a cellist in 2017, and as a cello teacher in 2018 at the Liszt Academy of Music. My teacher was István Varga.

I also have a language exam in English and I do teach in this language, too. I have been teaching at the Leopold Mozart Music School since 2018; several of my students decided to pursue a career in music. It is important for me that classes have a good atmosphere, thus the children feel themselves well, like coming to classes, and enjoy practicing at home, too, according to feedback. My goal is to pass on my love for the instrument and music to them so that they will like going to concerts as adults, too. I regularly organise opportunities for them to perform, so that they can try what they learnt on stage and that their self-confidence can grow, which they can enjoy later in their life, too.

I graduated as a secondary school music teacher and choir director in 1998 at the Liszt Academy of Music. I have been teaching solfège at the Leopold Mozart Music School since 1999. Since 2014, I have been teaching methodology at the Faculty of Teacher Training of the Károli Gáspár University of the Reformed Church in Hungary, and directing the Performing Choir of the university. I have been the director of the Central Choir of the Reformed church since 2016. I also direct two mixed choirs and serve as a cantor at the Reformed Congregation of Pozsonyi út, Budapest. I regularly perform as a solo singer at different church and secular events. I would like to help my students get to like solfège through the experience of singing.

I graduated as a violin and viola teacher in Győr and at the Liszt Academy of Music, Budapest. I have the opportunity to teach both instruments at the music school. I used to play the viola in the Hungarian Radio Orchestra for 33 years, for 15 out of which I was the deputy leader. I was a founding member of the Hungarian Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra. I started teaching at the music school in 2008. When teaching, I strive to make good use of the immense amount of musical-artistic-human experience I had during my activities as an orchestra and chamber musician, playing together with great artists. I have trained several students for a career in music also in German. With my students, we regularly take part in competitions. I am happy to visit courses of esteemed violin teachers.

My goal is to pass on the joy and happiness of playing music. I hope to aid my students experience the feeling of success while studying the instrument. I am happy when I can see their satisfaction after a performance.

I graduated as a trombonist and trombone teacher at the extramural department of the Liszt Academy of Music in Debrecen. I started my career as a teacher in 2002; I have been teaching and heading the department of brass instruments at the Leopold Mozart Music School since 2016. I actively take part in the work of the wind ensemble at the school. I have been the sound editor of classical music for the Phoenix Studio, Diósd, since 2008. I regularly play at concerts.

I graduated as an orgnaist at the Liszt Academy of Music. The triad of organ, piano, and harpshichord are very important in my life; I aim to reach the highest levels of performance and teaching with these instruments. I studied abroad in France and Germany at masterclasses and individual classes. I studied history at the Pázmány Péter Catholic University, my focus of interest is the archeology of the Ancient East. I have been working as a cantor at different churches since when I was ten years old. Teaching and performing complement and nourish each other in my life. My goal is to help children know the joy of playing music, and to develop their skills in improvisations beside instrumental technique, so that they may become creative adults who are able to gaze at the world in wonder. I regulary play at concerts both in Hungary and abroad. My hobbies are magicianship and oil painting. I also teach in English.

I graduated as a singing teacher at the Faculty of Music of the University of Debrecen. I had the opportunity to study in Germany with the Erasmus programme. I consider it very important to train myself continually beside teaching, therefore I regularly participate in masterclasses. I have been teaching singing at the Leopold Mozart Music School, Budaörs since 2019. My goal is that my students find their own voice and feel confident about using it. In classes, I work with stage presence and acting as well as vocal technique. I find great happiness in seeing my students open up as a result of music and singing. I teach also in English and German.

I studied choir direction and composition at the Liszt Academy of Music, I graduated as a composer and teacher of composition in 2018. I have been studying singing since 2009. I also work as a baritone with the Purcell Choir and the Hungarian Radio Choir. I also completed the BA programme in Italian and English at the Eötvös Loránd University, thus I am able to teach in both languages beside Hungarian; it means a great deal of freedom and richness to me. I am being trained in Klára Kokas’s pedagogy; I am a certified Metamorphoses Story-therapist, and a Bálint group leader.

I think about music as a deeply human phenomenon; I am able to show such terrains of my internal mental-spiritual world which cannot be communicated through other channels. If I am able to pass the beauty of this strong and, at the same time, vulnerable way of expression either as a creator or a performer or a teacher, it is a such a gift that I can hardly imagine any greater.

I wanted to be a piano teacher already as a child, music and teaching are inexhaustible treasuries for me. I know that personal exemple is crucial in this relationship. I strive to live genuinely, and to relate to the diversity of children with curiosity and responsibility. I graduated as a piano and solfège teacher at the extramural department of the Liszt Academy of Music in Miskolc. Beside teaching, raising my four children have given me fundamental experiences. I like to participate in competitons, festivals with my students; I have many times organised summer camps, programmes for the talented, and concert visits. Some of my students have chosen a career in music during my years as a teacher, but I strive to find the unique way to everyone so that they can enjoy playing music.

I graduated as an oboist and oboe teacher at the Liszt Academy of Music. I look for innovation both as a musician and as a teacher. I have played music in numerous styles and formations from classical to popular. I am currently a member of the Duna Symphonic Orchestra.

It is important for me to teach my students the basics with experiential methodology. A further goal of mine is to help my students get to like music to such a degree that it may become an elemental part of their everyday lives.

I have been teaching at the Leopold Mozart Music School since 2000, and also in music camps and masterclasses in Hungary as well as abroad. I founded and directed for 13 years the wind ensemble of the music school. I make transcriptions and I compose pieces for educational purposes. In my classes, singing together and improvising (Sáry method) are regular activities. I graduated in 2000 at the Liszt Academy of Music. I am a performer of contemporary music; I have been awarded the Fischer Annie Scholarship three times, the Artisjus Prize twice, and the Lajtha Prize. I won first place and a special prize at international competitions, and the scholarship of the american international flute festival. Several contemporary composers have written works for me. I play the Hungarian shepherd wind instruments, which has made my work unique among flautists. I created the programme Hungarian Motifs with jazz and folk musicians. I am a member of the EAR ensemble, and the Flute & Dance production. I play a golden flute in possession of the Hungarian State at concert. I teach in English and German.

Ütőhangszeres tanulmányaimat 8 évesen kezdtem Szentendrén a Vujicsics Tihamér Zeneiskolában. Középiskolába a Bartók Béla Zeneművészeti Szakközépiskolába jártam melyet a Liszt Ferenc Zeneművészeti Főiskola követett. 2005–ben szereztem diplomát klasszikus ütőhangszer szakon ahol többek között a következőkre lettem figyelmes: a zene és a hangszeres játék tanulása köti össze a legjobban a jobb és bal agyféltekét, segíti a nyelvi fejlődést, csiszolja a memóriát, jobb teljesítményre késztet, segít az érzelmi fejlődésben, közösséget teremt és sikerélményt ad. Rengeteg jótékony hatása van: ilyen a nem tudatos lelki tartalmak megélése és feldolgozása, vagy zenehallgatáson, vagy zenélésen keresztül.
Nos, mióta ezekről a nem mellékes dolgokról szó esett a főiskolán azóta tudom hogy fontos munkát végzünk a kolegákkal és megtisztelő hogy itt lehetek a zeneiskolban.

I have been a teacher at the Leopold Mozart Musich School since 2015, and the head of the department of piano since 2018. I live in Budaörs with my family.

As a music teacher, apart from professional quality, I find it important in the musical education of my students that children enjoy playing music. Several of my students have been successful in regional and national competitions; some have chosen a career in music. Still, I think real success is if studens discover the joy of learning, the connection between hard work and success, and, at the end of their studies, as more mature personalities, they take the love and understanding of music away, which can be a source of joy for life for them.

I am a teacher of music literature, music historian and church musician (Liszt Academy, Budapest). Apart from teaching, I study early – medieval and early modern – music history as a researcher at the Institute of Musicology. I keep my knowledge up to date by listening to conferences of diverse subjects of musicology, while I also regularly publish and present in my field of expertise both in Hungary and abroad. I have been teaching children since when I was 19 years old: in choirs, as a solfège teacher, and church musician. I have passed the intermediate language exams of German and Italian, and I also speak English on intermediate level, too.

I have been the teacher of music literature at the music school of Budaörs since 2005. Since 2006, we have participated in numerous memorable and successful competitions of musical literacy with my students (Bartók, Kodály, Erkel, Liszt). The goal of music literature classes is to enrich musical knowledge as well as create such an experience from listening to music, thinking about music, and getting educated in connection with music which accompanies children to their adulthood.

I graduated as a flute teacher at the Faculty of Music of the University of Győr as a student of Gergely Ittzés, Anett Jóföldi, and Balázs Arnóth. Beside my teaching activities, I play chamber music and do concerts with the Flautett Flute Quartet founded in 2010, where I often play the alto and bass flutes as well as the traditional soprano flute. Beside my musical studies, I became a certified Alexander Technique instructor in 2019. Learners of the method become able to recognise and release unnecessary muscle tension in their body, and thus create painless, optimal movement habits. Beside helping those, not only musicians, seeking my aid in my private practice, I teach the method to my students as a flute teacher, too, which contributes greatly to the success of their musical studies. I like accompanying my students at the piano, thus giving them a fuller sonoric experience.

I graduated at the Liszt Academy of Music in 2002. I have been teaching at the music school since 2010. I think the most valuable thing in our lives is time. Children spend the most of their time behind their desks at the school on acquiring largely useless lexical knowledge, which takes away their opportunity to develop other important skills, and discovering and getting to know the world. As music teachers, it is a huge possibility – and responsibility at the same time – that we are able to spend an hour every week one on one with the children. I hope to enrich my students during this time with experiential knowledge through music and, by this, they are able to become whole, healthy people.

I graduated as a music teacher and choir director at the Liszt Academy of Music in 2000, then I also completed the programme of piano accompaniment in the next two years. I have been a solfège teacher and piano accompanist at the music school since 2001.

I work as a choir director with the girls’ choir of the music school and as the deputy director of the Pro Musica Choir, Budaörs. Since 2014, I have been the head of department of musicianship at the school.

I think, regardless of whether we approach music from the instrument, singing, or theory, the goal is that both student and teacher enjoy themselves.

I graduated at the extramural department of the Liszt Academy of Music in Debrecen in 1998. I have been teaching at the Leopold Mozart Music School since 2003. I strive to make our work together with the student more enjoyable with little compositions tailored to them. I teach also in Italian and English.

As the poet Attila József writes, ‘...happy are only they who can play’* – and studying music is a serious game. My goal is to help as many young people get to know the joy of playing music – and, especially, the guitar – as possible.

* From his poem ‘In a light, white dress’ (Könnyű fehér ruhában – ‘…csak az boldog, ki játszhat.’)

I graduated as a singing teacher in 2020 at the Béla Bartók Institute of Music of the University of Miskolc. When writing my thesis I had deep insight into the effects of psychic processes on sound and sound-phonation and their relevance in music schools. I instruct my students paying special attention to their mental constitution.

I have always been interested in teaching, couple of my family members chose to become teachers too. I also work as an alto with the Hungarian Radio Choir. I find it extremely important, that my students learn how to pay attention and cooperate with each other when playing music. In my opinion, playing music with other people or in a group, forms personality and also provides a social experience.

I have a language exam in English (C1) and Italian (B2) and besides, I speak German a littlebit. This way I can help my students to translate foreign language texts of music pieces. Precise interpretation of these texts, is I think the key to an intense performance.

I was born into a family of teachers; my first violin teacher was my grandmother, and I prepared for a career in teaching from my childhood. I graduated at the Institute of Teacher Training, Pécs, then at the Liszt Academy of Music, Budapest. My teachers were Béla Csanyi, István Gyermán, and Mária Vermes. I taught at the Szent István Király Secondary School of Music and Primary Music School for 17 years; I have been playing with the Orfeo Orchestra since 1992 alongside teaching. I wish to impart my professional and educational experience at the Leopold Mozart Music School, too.

I graduated as a teacher at the extramural department of the Liszt Academy of Music in Pécs in 2000, then as a bassoonist and bassoon teacher in Szeged in 2002. I have been teaching at the Leopold Mozart Music School since 2002. I often perform both with orchestras and chamber music ensembles.

It is important for me that my students get to like not only the instrument, but also music itself and playing music in my classes; and that they become able to put to use the knowledge they acquire here as a hobby or as a profession on their own later.

I graduated as a performing artist in 2012, and as a teacher (MEd) in 2014 with highest qualifications at the Liszt Academy of Music. I am the winner of two National Competitions for the Guitar (2003/06), and I was a finalist of the Concertino Praga competition. I have been teaching music since 2007. The focus of my work as a music teacher is helping children get to like music, and to strengthen and improve competences useful in everyday life through music.

Since I have completed my courses abroad after having graduated as a guitar teacher and chamber musician, I have been teaching in Hungarian and English. Beside extending individual repertoire on the guitar, I also lay heavy emphasis on the opportunities to play music together in my classes. As a performing artist, my favourite periods of music history are the 20–21st centuries and early music. I primarily look for children as my future students who feel a strong inner urge to play music individually and together, who have good musical ability and are hardworking.

I graduated as a violin teacher in Debrecen, at the extramural department of the Liszt Academy of Music in 1985. Then I was admitted to the MÁV Symphony Orchestra, Budapest, of which I have been a member ever since. In my choice to pursue a career in music, my experiences of singing with the Hungarian Radio Children’s Choir and, later, playing with esteemed artists as an orchestra musician played a central role.

My goal is to help children obtain musical knowledge and experience which makes their everyday and, possibly, even their future brighter and more colourful.

I graduated at the Liszt Academy of Music, Budapest (piano teacher, 1988), and the University of Music, Munich (harpsichordist and teacher in 1992, chamber musician and teacher in 1993). I have taught in Hungary and in Germany at all levels – primary, secondary, higher – of music education, thus I also teach in German. I have performed abroad and in Hungary as a soloist, chamber musician, and the harpsichordist of the Bach Collegium, Munich. Since 2015, I have been a professor of masterclasses and vocational trainings.

My faith and belief is that we can raise our students through teaching music to become more harmonious, whole people who find their uniqueness and are able to express it for the benefit of the community.

I graduated as a flute teacher at the Institute of Teacher Training of the Liszt Academy of Music, then I taught in Budapest for a longer period of time. We have founded the Aulos Ensemble together with my colleagues coming from Budapest who liked early music; I have played the recorder and the baroque flute with the ensemble at concerts in Hungary and abroad, and recordings. I have been teaching at the Leopold Mozart Music School, Budaörs since 2001, and I have been the head of the department of woodwind instruments since 2006. I look for students who would like to play the flute, the recorder, and chamber music, to whom I can pass the joy of the most harmony-centred phenomenon of the human life, that is, playing music and its active experience.

I graduated as a trumpetist and trumpet teacher at the extramural department of the Liszt Academy of Music in Szeged in 2003. Still as a university student, I won the competition of the universities of Szeged and Debrecen in 1999, and the National University Competition in 2000. I regularly play music as a chamber and orchestra musician in Hungary as well as abroad. I have been teaching in Budaörs since 2001; my students have won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes at numerous competitions. I have been the director of the wind orchestra of the school since 2014. I like to diversify the classical repertoire with arrangements of popular pieces, which are welcome both by the members of the orchestra and the audience.

I graduated as a secondary school music teacher, choir director, music theory teacher, piano teacher, and chamber musician at the Liszt Academy of Music. Since 2008, I have been working as a piano teacher and accompanist at the music school. I participate as an accompanist in regional and national competitions as well as admission exams of wind and string instruments; I also sing in two choirs and play the piano. I strive to get closer to the souls of the children with methods of self-knowledge and the Kovács Method. As a piano teacher, my goal is to help my students enjoy playing music, and, through it, become healthy minded adults who like and know music, and grow in self-knowledge and self-discovery.

I graduated as a cello teacher at the Budapest Institute of Teacher Training of the Liszt Academy of Music in 1988. After two years as an orchestra musician and the years spent at home with my own children, I have been a teacher at the music school since 1999. When working with my students, I put to good use the experiences of several vocational trainings, professional courses, and the past years. I take pleasure in that, with many children, a collaboration of many years and a good human relationship can be formed, as a result of which we are able to create a lifelong possibility to play music. Among my students who have grown up, some have chosen a career in music. I have been heading the department of string instruments and the guitar for many years.

I graduated at the Conservatory of Szeged of the Liszt Academy of Music in 1998. I have been teaching the recorder and the trumpet in this school since September 2010. Between 2013 and 2018, I was the deputy headmaster responsible for education and administration. My students regularly perform at concerts and events of the music school. In my work, I highly value fairness, clarity, and reliability. I pay special attention to the quality of musical expression in my classes.

As a university student, I went to the Béla Bartók Institute of Music of the University of Miskolc, and the Liszt Academy of Music, Budapest.

I started my career as a teacher in 2009, and I have been working at the music school since 2013. I most like playing in chamber music ensembles, and I strive to pass this joy on to my students, who play in clarinet quartets, clarinet trios, and, occasionally, as proud members of the clarinet orchestra.

I feel great happiness when children arrive aglare with bright eyes stating they would like to play music. My goal is to help my students become happier and richer people through the love of music.

I have been working at the music school as a percussion teacher since 2003. I graduated at the Budapest Institute of Teacher Training of the Liszt Academy of Music. As a soloist, I performed at numerous concerts in Budaörs, too. I regularly play with orchestras. The main goal of my work as a teacher is to help the children who become my students get to like music and to impart complex knowledge to them in my classes. Several of my students have participated in national competitions and they are also regular performers at the events of the town.

I studied music in Hajdúnánás, Miskolc and Pécs, and graduated as a choir director and a teacher of music theory and secondary school music teacher. I believe that studying music and singing are among the greatest tools for shaping people, and that they can help and open children to find their own happiness. I very much like to help my students prepare for the yearly ‘Forget-(me)-not’ folk song singing competition, even in private sessions. ‘Success is Getting What You Want; Happiness is Wanting What You Get.’

I graduated as a pianist in 2017 and as a teacher in 2018 at the Liszt Academy of Music, Budapest. I started my career of teaching as a university student, at the age of 22. I strive to create a relaxed, cheerful, but, nonetheless, hardworking atmosphere in my classes. I think it is important that every student can progress at a pace which suits their abilities. When there is curiosity, I like to share with my students some points of interest belonging to the broader sphere of music, let them be about composers, other instruments, famous works or performers.

It is not at all my goal to make every student become a pianist – but people who love music and, thus, live a fuller life all the more. I strive to regularly perform, too, beside teaching.

I started playing the piano as a student of Zsófia Heizer at the Pálóczi Horváth Ádám Music School, Szombathely. I went to the Art Secondary School, Szombathely as a classical pianist. I graduated as a jazz pianist at the Liszt Academy of Music. I have been teaching at the music school since 2018. Since 2012, I have been working at theatres as a jazz pianist; I also play in different jazz and pop ensembles.
