An active chamber musician who continues to explore musical genres, Ms. Ulex has collaborated on a number of special projects such as "Sight & Sound," a live concert featuring projections of paintings by Berlin artist Ade Frey. The images projected provide an emotional response to Ms. Ulex’s performance of music by Modest Mussorgky's "Pictures at an Exhibition", Schumann and Villa Lobos. Audiences in New York, Atlanta, Barcelona, Valencia and Berlin have all been enthralled by this singular multi media experience.
Ms. Ulex also collaborates with Brazilian soprano Katia Guedes. The result is an inspired new album “The Brazilian Classical Song”, recently released on the Tango Malambo Label. The album contains music which spans over 200 years of classical Brazilian Song repertoire.

In addition to performing around the world, Ms. Ulex has been commissioned to record for Steinway & Sons new Spirio, the world’s finest high resolution player piano.
Ms. Ulex has been featured on Berlin Radio's "Artist Portraits" series, WWFM and can be heard on E1 Entertainment (Koch classics), Tango Malambo and Eroica. As Steinway artist Ms. Ulex divides her time working out of New York City and Berlin.
.Lessons include theory and ear training beside learning pieces on the piano. Encouraging four hands playing or playing w/other instruments. I have students in all levels from beginners to stage performing (NYSSMA, Guild, or competition). Also, private and public performances depending on comfort level and desire. There is no limit but also no pressure from my end.
Enjoy sharing my knowledge and love for music with my students.
