I am a young and dynamic performer and teacher looking for pupils to share my passion and experience with. Apart from performing and teaching I am also fascinated with piano improvisation. If you do not accept mediocrity and have a a will to work hard and defined goal you want to pursue, or simply love the music and want to have a lot of fun, do not hesitate to contact me. I am waiting for your email.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach piano. However, it is essential for me to provide my students with all kinds of knowledge they may need during their professional music career. Thus, my lessons contain references to theory, history of musical styles, psychology and literature. Apart from learning the piano technique and interpretation skills my students become familiar with all the background they have to know to become an aware performer. A vital part of studying with me is learning how to stay focused and calm during the public performance, and how to deal with performance stress. To summarize, my main goal is to provide my clients with highly professional and complete teaching support.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
Master of Performance - studying in progress - Royal College of Music- London
Bachelor of Music Diploma - graduated from the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice (Poland)
Complete teaching qualification included in the BMus diploma - units: Methodology of Piano Teaching, Psychology, Pedagogy
Common European Framework of Reference International Qualification in English - C1 Advanced
My teaching qualifications have been approved by the Royal College of Music Teaching service (where I am also available).
- How much do you charge?
I charge £30 for an hour and £25 for 45 minutes, but there should be at least one lesson weekly. If I have to travel longer distances a transport fee may be also charged (negotiable). The first consultation lesson is free - it is designed to asses the pupil's performance level and to set- up a schedule for the next couple of lessons. Of course if you wish, you can have a first paid lesson immediately after consultation or instead of it. If there is more than one pupil in the house the discount can be negotiable.
- Where do you teach?
I usually teach at students' homes. I can teach anywhere in London - zones 1-4.
- When are you available?
I am available weekdays and during weekends. I am trying to be as flexible as possible when arranging lessons. Just contact me and we will work it out.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I can teach ages from 7 to adults and levels from beginners to very advanced. You may think that because of my teaching methods based on references to various kinds of knowledge my lessons are most suitable for intermediate and advanced students, but I have an individualised approach tailored especially for every particular student so children and adult beginners will also have a lot of fun.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have over four years of experience in teaching. Currently I have some private students who applied for lessons with me through the Royal College of Music Teaching Service.

I had a teaching practice during my first-cycle studies (over 150 hours of teaching). Finally, I have given countless lessons to my classmates during studies, just because teaching is my passion.
I am a laureate and participant of many European competitions and festivals( both for solo and chamber musicians). Currently, I am studying with one of the world's greatest pianists- Kevin Kenner at the Royal College of Music in London. I am the holder of Royal College of Music Scholarship and many other prizes and awards. My CVs and teaching references are available upon request. My sample performances are also available on YouTube and in My Media section.
