« As a conductor at RCM, I’ve worked with Adam Mazurek in a masterclass on Dvořák’s cello concerto. The masterclass was made of two parts - work with Adam and a pianist and also a read through with a chamber ensemble. Adam was very well prepared for the occasion, played the work with very deep understanding and was very easy to work with. As a soloist, Adam understands that performing a concerto like that by Dvořák requires a collaborative spirit, an understanding where to lead as the soloist and where to accompany the orchestra. Among the many aspects of Adam’s playing that were impressive, stamina was certainly one of them, as he played the demanding concerto a good number of times on the same day. He went beyond his duties when he stayed on afterwards to chat about the piece and this is also where his strength of preparation and knowledge of the work was apparent. I sincerely look forward to the next time I work with Adam and wholeheartedly recommend you him to you! Best wishes, Ondrej Soukup www.ondrej-soukup.com »

Methodology

In my opinion the most important thing is that learning to play an instrument should be associated mainly with possibility of emotion expression and fun.
I teach my students to tell colourful stories through the sounds of the cello. Playing an instrument gives the opportunity to reflect one's own experiences in musical interpretations and connect with a listener in an amazing non-verbal communication.

Improving the technique is a very important element of learning to play any instrument, but it is highly developed imagination and the ability to be inspired by the beauty of the modern world that are crucial in building mature and interesting musical interpretations.

I focus on the individual needs of students and try to successfully develop strengths and eliminate weaknesses.

I pay attention to playing with good intonation, precise rhythm and projection of a beautiful, strong sound.

I am happy to work on the movements efficiency, I teach how to produce sound with as little use of force as possible.

I find it very important to teach how to practice effectively and to give students tools needed for good individual practice.

I also write an exercise plan for the whole week.

I believe that before starting cooperation it is very important to set clear goals. I’m more than happy to prepare students for exams and competitions.

Lessons should take place in a favourable, quiet place where the student feels comfortable and safe. I can teach in my flat (N7) or in a students house.

I don’t create long-term pressure and try to minimise stress during lessons as these are factors that have a very negative impact on student development.

Creating music together develops interpersonal skills, brings incredible joy and satisfaction.
With a sufficient number of applicants, I offer group lessons - opportunity to learn how to play in a chamber ensemble.

I gained my teaching experience by working as a teaching assistant to my professor, Tomasz Strahl at the Frederic Chopin University of Music in Warsaw, Poland between 2017 and 2020.
I am a very ambitious, calm person with highly developed communication and listening skills and I would love to share my passion for the instrument and help students in every age to find their right path in the musical journey.

Experience

Adam Mazurek was born in 1994 to a family of musicians in Poznan. Aged six he began to study the cello with his father. Six years later he won his first international competition.

Aged fifteen he made his solo debut with the Polish Radio Chamber Orchestra Amadeus. He took part in numerous festivals both as a soloist and chamber musician and performed in many polish concert halls - among others: Poznan Philharmonic, Zielona Gora Philharmonic, NOSPR chamber hall, the Royal Castle in Warsaw, the President Palace of Poland in the presence of President of Poland Andrzej Duda.

Adam participated in masterclasses with Jens Peter Maintz, Arto Noras, Wolfgang Emannuel Schmidt, Alexander Gebert, Kiril Rodin and many others.

Graduated with distinction at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw in 2018, where he studied under the guidance of Tomasz Strahl. During his studies in Warsaw he was a leader of the cello section of Chopin University Chamber Orchestra. He participated in international student’s exchange in Detmold, Germany, Tallin and Estonia, where he had a chance to perform at the Warsaw Spring Festival.

As a part of the Societe Generale award he recorded Astor Piazzola’s Le grand tango with Łukasz Brzezina, with whom he also performed at the Accordion Festival in Vilnus, Lithuania.

During Sinfonia Varsovia scheme - 5th Sinfonia Varsovia Academy he performed in China, Korea and France.

His cooperation with Zielona Gora Philharmonic as a soloist includes two concerts at Masters of Polish Violinism String Festival and a New Year Concert in Stadthalle Verden, Germany. His last achievement is Grand Prix at the 10th Dezyderiusz Danczowski’s National Cello Competition.

Adam’s interest in popular music resulted in cooperation with the Ralph Kamiński, Zuzanna Całka and Adam Sztaba Orchestra.

Currently he‘s doing his Artist Diploma course at the Royal College of Music, where he is an RCM Award Holder supported by the Leverhulme Arts Scholar.

Adam has been the most wonderful and knowledgeable professor of Cello! He has helped me learn how to play cello from the basics and is preparing me ever since. He's very calm, hardworking reliable and dedicated teacher. On the other hand his career and achievements so far tell a lot about his mastery of instrument and possibility to transfer his knowledge to the student. Very patient and understanding, as well as appreciative! I would recommend him with all my heart!

I highly recommend Adam as a cello teacher. As a colleague, we met last year during a concert and I can attest that he is a truly excellent cellist, with wonderful musical ideas, and he is also a very reliable person. I would trust him completely as a cello teacher and musician and highly recommend him to any student.

Adam is a great teacher. Very pro active and gave very nice lessons to my daughter. She enjoyed it and made much progress. Thanks again for all Adam !

Peter

Adam's cello lessons exceeded our highest expectations. Our son enjoys every minute of his cello lessons, and what's more, he seems to be getting more and more into it. Even though he is usually quite stubborn and loses enthusiasm easily, it’s been quite a time since he showed any sign of boredom.

Marta

Adam is a great teacher with lots of experience. He has a great approach to both children and adults. His personality is characterised by openness and spontaneity. Inspiration and motivation are his trademakrs. He’s a person with a very high propriety and work hygiene. As an active musician he presents a very high level of performance skills.
