Music has always been my main interest and passion. As a teenager I have always strived to learn and develop my skills and understanding of music as much as possible in my free time. In the early stages of my education I decided to pursue my interest in music further and study it full-time. 

I am originally from Hungary and studied Solo Singing Teaching and Performing of Vocal Chamber Music in The Conservatory Bela Bartok of the University of Miskolc where I obtained a BA degree in 2009.

I completed my PGCE in Further Education and Training at the University of Portsmouth. I was appointed as a Music Teacher at St Edward's Royal Free Ecumenical Middle School in Windsor in May 2017 only two months before I graduated from the University of Portsmouth. Since September 2022 I am the Director of Music in St Edmund’s School, Hindhead.

To develop my skills further and to enhance my understanding of music education, performance science and music psychology I completed my MA degree in Music Psychology in Education, Performance and Wellbeing at the University of Sheffield between 2019 and 2021.

My MA dissertation title is Boys’ Singing: Self-representation and identity affected by the change of the vocal folds during adolescence.
