Wojciech is a great piano instructor. He’s very patient and flexible. He explains things in memorable ways and makes learning enjoyable. His variations for scales were super fun to learn.

No other clarinet teacher has taught me the basics of the clarinet in this fundamental way so quickly. That is , to develop a strategy for proper breathing, finger centering , and air consistency on the instrument. He gets an A+ from me on the first lesson. He's just what I need to accomplish my goal at UNM music department. I certainly want to continue taking more lessons from his excellent teaching method.+ Read More
Wojciech is a brilliant musician and gifted teacher!
Although I have not seen W. teach, or taken a lesson from him, I can say he is an excellent musician and a very likable human being. He plays piano ( and clarinet) very well, and is a very fine conductor. He is a warm, caring individual.
Wojciech is an amazing instructor! He helped prepare me for the orchestral portions of several musicals. His exuberant personality, patience, and mastery of the material helped me play my best at each of the performances. I highly recommend him as an instructor and as a person for all music-related lessons!+ Read More
