I believe that I am a very positive person, committed to teaching, sharing my passion for music and knowledge I have gained through years of my musical training with all students. I am always trying to provide teaching appropriate for all student's needments and expectations, both for children and adults.
I graduated from Guildhall School of Music&Drama with the Master of Performance title. I have finished a comprehensive music school in Poland both on viola and violin and Bachelor's Degree in viola in the Academy of Music in Gdansk (Poland).
I was giving private lessons both in Poland and England. I have also finished a teaching methodology course while I was doing my Bachelor's Course at the Academy of Music in Gdansk and completed professional training in leading music groups and ensembles in London.
Apart from music, I am into art; I am a national prizewinner in many Polish art competitions and my artworks have been displayed in some national and international exhibitions.
