In order to further her education she came to Germany, where she began her second degree under the tuition of Professor Andreas Pistorius at the University for Music and Performing Arts in Mannheim and graduated with the highest honours. As a student she took part several times in the music festival “FESTIVAL MITTE EUROPA” of the “Clara Wieck” Vogtland Conservatory in Plauen, as well as in master classes, in order to gather new creative inspiration and artistic experience.
She had already started to captivate her audience with her virtuoso piano playing from when she was a student. Kamilla offers a broad spectrum of piano compositions, from classical to modern light music.

Singing has recently become a new way for her to communicate with the audience. Through delicate piano music and song, Kamilla is able to create a discreet and charming atmosphere. Her empathetic singing directly touches the hearts of its listeners.
