« I have seen Jolanta teach children and adults , adapting her teaching to bring the best out of all her student whilst remaining professional . 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.
