Ilona Schön, chair of the piano department at the Bence Szabolcsi Music School, Budapest

It has been a great gift in my life that I was able to take part in Dr. Géza Kovács's workout classes and courses.

It was during these sessions that I received explanations and answers to my problems in the light of the most modern information possible.

I am grateful for this invaluable help, thanks to which - rather than becoming a martyr to music - I have been able to be a vital advocate of the cause of music for 34 years as a music teacher, educating school children, high- schoolers, and college students.
