Since early childhood, Alena has always been surrounded by music. Her grandfather, a jazz multi-instrumentalist, accompanied her when she was taking her first steps towards music, becoming a great musical role model for her. At the age of three she began singing, and a few years later started playing the piano, which eventually became her study and professional point of focus. After graduating from comprehensive grammar school, she therefore decided to continue studying at a conservatory focused on classical and jazz music. In her teaching profession, she values cooperation with her students the most, who pose as a great inspiration for her life. Her main goal in teaching is to lead students to love music, to make their own musical discoveries and gain new insights and knowledge.
