My main principle for teaching is to share the passion for creating and enjoying music with others in a friendly atmosphere. I pay attention to the student's character and personality and I use special teaching techniques that are suitable for them. I create a friendly, positive and fully engaging atmosphere that helps students to learn fast and without a big effort.
I try to make the lessons varied and fun, and I focus on teaching good habits that enable a player to maintain proper posture, healthy breathing and a good flute technique that pave the way for playing the instrument in a comfortable and relaxed way now and in the future.
I am a musician, flautist and a fully qualified flute and music teacher with more than 5 years of tutoring and school-teaching experience.
I hold a Master's degree in Music Performance (flute specialization) from the Academy of Music in Lodz, Poland where I also completed a teacher's training course.
I am a qualified teacher with an experience in teaching in a school setting and giving private tuition. As a flute teacher, I have worked in a maintained music school for two and a half years. Throughout this time, I also worked as a regular flute teacher first in an independent music school and then in an independent school as a flute tutor.
As a private instrumental tutor, I helped students progress in every aspect of flute playing and also excel in their results in national school exams and competitions. Apart from teaching the art of flute playing, I made students grow in their general musicianship and equipped them with fundamentals of music theory.
