I am a very mature student ( 61) and had never played an instrument or read music before I started my harp lessons. I cannot recommend her more highly, she would be an excellent choice for both students starting out and experience musicians who wish to progress further .

Jolanta is a friendly, fantastic teacher who has been teaching our daughter piano for a number of years and has ensured that she has progressed on a weekly basis. She is professional, reliable and trustworthy, we feel extremely lucky to have her as our daughters tutor. I have no hesitation in highly recommending her as a tutor.

Jolanta is extremely knowledgeable, passionate about her subject and supportive of her students. She provides thorough Music theory tuition, adapting to meet her students needs. Jolanta has provided music theory tuition to my 8 year old daughter for over a year, and has been able to teach concepts, that are complex at her age, in an understandable and easily digestible way. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jolanta.

Jolanta has been teaching my 10 year old daughter the harp for the past 3 years and music theory for the past year with outstanding results. Jolanta is a talented musician and committed, passionate and professional teacher. My daughter enjoys her lessons with Jolanta and her school have complimented Jolanta on how thorough her teaching is. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jolanta.

I have been taking piano lessons from Jolanta for a while now and I always look forward to my weekly lesson. She is so enthusiastic and friendly and I always feel at ease with her which is really important. I definitely recommend Jolanta for music lessons!

D
Deborah

Jolanta has been my harp teacher and my son's piano teacher for over 3 years. She is friendly and upbeat and always finds a way of explaining tricky theory and practical issues which are easy for us to understand and remember. We would both recommend her for helping us improve and get the results we want to achieve in our playing and understanding of music theory.
