His unique approach left a lasting impression on Alena's own performing and teaching style.  Alena had the privilege to also study under distinguished Czech pianists and professors such as Michael Rezek and Milan Langer who introduced her to different piano techniques and the extraordinary world of tone colours.

One of her biggest passions was to be part of two chamber music ensembles with which she travelled and performed all over the Czech Republic. 


Alena is a devoted and enthusiastic piano teacher. A blend of the revered Russian piano schooling tradition and contemporary teaching methods forms the core of her instruction approach. She understands that every students is unique and strives to create a balanced learning experience that is both fun and challenging, helping each students discover their own connection with the wonderful world of piano.
