Since 2011 Elena is organizing Summer master classes in Baden-Baden. Lessons take place in Elena's landhouse with a big garden. There are two grand pianos (Steinway and Yamaha) in a big room, as well as a Grotrian-Steinweg upright piano downstairs where practicing is also possible. There are practicing possibilities at the Clara Schumann Music School of the city of Baden-Baden.
Every year Elena Kuschnerova master classes are concluded by a students' concert in the beautiful Bellevue hall. This concert is being reviewed by the local press. Students are receiving diplomas.
