About Me

I am an accomplished musician and artist with an uncanny ability to understand what children need and empathize with them. I have been learning music since age of 6. I have been taught piano, its techniques, and style, as well as music history from wonderful and talented musicians from all over Europe. I graduated from Art School in Poland. I have been performing in many European countries like Poland or Germany since I was 10.

I have been teaching piano for the past 6 years. I have also been working as a art teacher and a nanny which definitely helped me to understand kids and their needs to become a successful piano instructor. I myself was taught from private instructions for years and that allows me to relate to my students more and know that encouragement to regular practice on a consistent schedule as well as picking the right program for every single one of my students are the two main keys to success.

I always guide my instructions accordingly to my studentsneeds to keep the lessons engaging and fun. I try to get to know my students as well as possible so I can pick them the right pieces to play. For beginning students I typically use Nancy and Randall Faber's PreTime Piano, however I also put my personal touch in every students program depending on their skill level, age and interests. I always pick pieces that I am sure my students will enjoy learning but also have them gain a new important skill. I also supply visual help such as stickers and drawings to ensure understanding of a subject.

My goal is to provide the environment, resources, and suitable instruction for my students to get the most out of learning piano. I have a wide range of techniques to make the process of discovering a new instrument easier and more fun for my students. Having worked as both a nanny and a piano teacher for many years, I bring to the table a breadth of experience, versatility, and insight.
