My Unique Skills apply especially to very young piano students (even as young as 3 years old), and my passion for music, excellence, for teaching, and for organizing piano recitals and competitions make me the best teacher to motivate all of my students to play forever, and never ever quit!
With my European background of learning music with excellent teachers in music elementary school (since I was 5 years old); music high school; plus 2 years of teacher's college in Poland and 4 years in Chicago, Il USA - National College of Education (major piano pedagogy), with additional Computer Information System B.S. degree, and Masters Degree in Management (at National_Louis University) I can offer an excellent piano teaching program, well organized lessons including solid music theory background (I write music teaching computer software which is Fun, Easy, and enjoyable for all of my students). I am serious about teaching it right. My students are ready for any exams, competitions, recitals, shows.
