Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have a flexible and dynamic approach to teaching and will adapt each lesson to the individual needs of the student, with the emphasis on fun, creativity and progress.

For the last eight years I have been working with children and teenagers. My teaching experience started with a very intensive course in the Early Years Teaching in 2010 that taught me the importance of giving children a good start in music. Between 2010 and 2012 I took part in Music for everyone project supported by Warsaw city. As a workshop leader I was in charge of workshops about Polish Music in non-musical schools, organising and leading concerts promoting Polish music, leading musical activities and workshops introducing children to the world of music.

Since 2012 I have been collaborating with RCM Sparks on projects and workshops that gave me the opportunity to work with children coming from different backgrounds and having various levels of experience in music. Working as a music assistant requires from me helping them to discover the beauty of music, create their own pieces and teach them piano. I have previously worked for organisations such as: the Early Learning Music Academy 'Elma', Richmond Music Trust and Funky Monkey Keyboard Classes.

For the last six years I have been giving private piano and music theory lessons for children, teenagers and adults whilst also working for RCM Teaching Service at the Royal College of Music. I'm happy to prepare my students for exams (Piano Grades 1-8, DipABRSM, Music Theory Grades 1-8, Music GSCE, Music A-Level).

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I'm member of Incorporated Society of Musicians
