Personal Description:

Hungarian pianist Alina Horváth is the recipient of the Philip Halstead Prize for Piano. Winner of the ‘Music without borders’ International Contemporary Music Competition, including the Audience Award; the Governors' Recital Prize and the Mary D Adams Prize for Chamber Music. Alina graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and gained a first class BMus degree (2015) and an MMus degree (2017). She has been a concerto soloist with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Symphony Orchestra and the Wind Orchestra, and a recitalist in many concert halls and music festivals across the UK and Hungary such as Budapest Spring Festival, Aberdeen International Youth Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Glasgow Piano Festival and Music at Paxton. She is a concert pianist on the Live Music Now young artist scheme, giving concerts and workshops across Scotland. Among other places her voice and piano duo has performed at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh, Aberdeen Concert Hall and Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Her love of music is not only dedicated to performances, but she is also an enthusiastic teacher at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Junior Conservatoire and accompanist at the National Youth Choir of Scotland East Dunbartonshire Boys and Renfrewshire Area Choirs. On her vacation Alina teaches piano at the Allegro Summer Camp held annually at the spectacular lake Balaton in Hungary.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching as a private piano tutor in Glasgow since 2014 and during these years some wonderful students enriched my teaching experiences not only with their lovely personalities in lessons, but also with their outstanding performances at ABRSM and Trinity examinations, Higher Music exams, Glasgow Music Festival, various competitions, award and successful music university applications.

I am also a Piano Lecturer at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Junior Conservatoire and Early Years Music since 2016 and the accompanist at the National Youth Choir of Scotland (NYCOS) Glasgow area choirs since 2014. I attended the 'Kodály Summer School' in Edinburgh which helped me use the English adaptation of the method efficiently in my own tuition.
In the summer holidays I enjoy teaching the piano at the international Allegro Summer Camp for children in Hungary which is a great initiation to build international music connections from an early age.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer enjoyable one to one piano and music theory lessons for children and adults.
I teach music for those who want to learn the piano for fun and also students who pursue music professionally. I find it important to provide a comprehensive understanding of musical knowledge as well as performance skills and I support my students to find opportunities to embellish their experiences in various settings suitable for their progress like attending performances, festivals, master classes and competitions.
