Hello! Thanks for visiting!
My name is Weronika. I am passionate about helping you or your child grow and develop on your own unique path as a musician and human being. When I teach, I rely on my extensive performing and teaching experience, as well as pedagogical training in Dalcroze Eurhythmics and teaching artistry. I have worked with all age groups, from beginner to pre-professional. Please feel free to reach out with any questions you have or if you would like to get to know me better. My name is pronounced "Veronica" - it's Polish!
As a flutist, teaching artist, and educator, I am dedicated to creating engaging musical experiences that connect us to ourselves and to each other. I am the Flutist and Co-Founder of Marvento Duo, winner of the Brookline Symphony Concerto Competition, and active as a Baroque flutist and new music advocate in various chamber, orchestra, and educational projects. I am the Integrative Education Fellow and Director of Development at Integral Steps in Louisville, Colorado. I teach classes for Integral Steps and flute lessons in my private studio in Boulder, Colorado, and through Skype. Committed to building healthy vibrant arts organizations, I contribute actively to the strategic development of my ensembles and organizations. I have served as Secretary of the Board of Integral Steps, and as interim President of the New England Chapter of the Dalcroze Society of America.
I look forward to getting to know you better!

I have been teaching flute lessons for over a decade, in Bloomington, IN, Boston, MA, and now in Boulder, CO. I also teach Skype lessons. My flute studio curriculum includes group classes and multiple performance opportunities (recitals, community service concerts) each year. I support students in learning repertoire they choose, band music, and flute fundamentals such as tone, technique, and expression.+ Read More
The Suzuki School of Newton Musicianship program is an integral part of the Core Instrumental Program. In addition to teaching weekly group musicianship classes to students ages 5-14, I also rewrote and implemented the musicianship curriculum and interviewed students for the monthly Suzuki Radio podcast.+ Read More
The Brookline Symphony is a wonderful community organization! We performed each program in a public concert and at an outreach concert at local service organization.
Emissary Quartet is an innovative ensemble of four flutists dedicated to performance and education. During my time with Emissary, we won grants from the Fromm Foundation at Harvard and NewMusicUSA, designed and executed an international Call for Scores competition which garnered 180 submissions from 5 continents, developed a Young Composers Project with composer Kaley Lane Eaton, and collaborated with composer Annika Socolofsky to commission, premiere, and record a new work for flute quartet. I also designed and taught educational workshops for the Suzuki Association of Utah and the Utah Flute Association.+ Read More
Making Music Matters! offers in-school group instrumental instruction in flute, clarinet, violin, and trumpet to elementary school students in Boston Public Schools.
Based on the artistic and pedagogical principles of Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, the Dalcroze approach teaches an understanding of music's fundamental concepts, expressive meanings, and deep connections to other arts and activities. Performers, teachers, dancers, actors, children, and senior citizens can all benefit from this approach which incorporates rhythmic movement, aural training and improvisation.+ Read More
Weronika is my 13 year-old daughter's flute instructor flute (three months). Mary is a beginner, however, in this short amount of time, she had made significant progress. She is already playing many songs, preparing for a recital and enthusiastically asks Weronika to teach her more.
This is not surprising as Weronika has a kind, friendly, patient, and caring personality that makes my daughter feel very comfortable during their lessons. At the same time, she maintains very high expectations for her students. She frequently asks my daughter questions about music theory or the composer's intentions to get her thinking about what she is doing. She gives my daughter frequent feedback and asks my daughter to share her thoughts on performance goals as well.
Weronika is gifted as a flutist and an amazing teacher. She truly inspires my daughter to do her best. We highly recommend Weronika to other families.
Weronika is a dedicated, fun, creative, and passionate teacher. I can't recommend her enough! I teach cello at a community music school in Massachusetts where she taught musicianship and served as chair of our musicianship department. Under her leadership, the quality of the department improved immensely. Weronika went the extra mile to develop a curriculum for our school to use, and I know my students benefited greatly from her efforts. She is sorely missed here!+ Read More
Weronika is a skilled educator, a talented musician, and a fun person. I learned much from her as an advanced adult student; however, I could tell from studio recitals that she works well with people of all ages and levels. I liked that Weronika encouraged me to trust my own musical instincts and was open to experimenting and exploring creative options. She fully supported my musical growth and interests and provided helpful feedback. I also liked that she incorporated movement into lessons, which was helpful for practicing rhythm and phrase.+ Read More
From my experience collaborating with Weronika to present workshops and ensemble performances, I know she brings extraordinary enthusiasm, creativity, and attention to detail to her teaching. Not only does she work diligently with her students to develop healthy playing technique, but she also cares deeply about their musical growth and personal expression. When studying pieces, her students learn about the composers and historical contexts of the pieces, which enliven their performances and help connect them to the audience. Weronika inspires her students to approach their flute studies joyfully!+ Read More
Weronika is a natural and gifted teacher who is quick to identify what each child needs to succeed. She has a genuine desire to see her students succeed and develop a love for music.
