Teaching since:
1992

I am a professional violinist and pianist with MA degree in instrumental performance. I started to play when I was 6. I earned my education in Poland and Germany, where I come from. European music tradition is very long and rich in famous composers, I am sure I have a lot of knowledge to pass to my students and many years of experience in teaching. I have travelled a lot since I was a child, playing concerts in different countries. Before I moved to San Diego, I was a concertmaster of Amman Symphony Orchestra and a violin teacher at The National Music Conservatory. In 2016, I recorded an album called Petra with famous Italian jazz musician called Luca Aquino. We actually recorded few soundtracks in ancient city of Petra, where movie Indiana Jones was filmed. Our album was ranked by a Jazz magazine as 1 of 10 best jazz albums in Italy of year 2016. Here in California I also record music for films- the last one is called The Bad Seed , produced by Rob Lowe. I had an opportunity to record it in Warner Bros Studios in Hollywood. My latest recording happened in Capitol Records, where I was honoured to be part of the new album of Alan Parsons Project, called `The Secret. I am also a member of La Jolla Symphony, working on my own chamber music projects etc. I can teach classical music as well as pop, jazz and improvisation using electric violin.
I think what makes me unique as a teacher is that I can teach different styles of music. For me there are no borders in playing instrument- it's up to you what you wanna achieve and do with your instrument . My second major is piano so if u want, I can teach piano and keyboards. With CMG Music Recording in Hollywood,which I am part of I filmed and recorded last Thursday a trailer for Super Bowl! You can spot my face for a few second!!
