Biography

I am a flute, piano and music theory teacher and an active performer with more than 7 years of private and school-based teaching experience.

I hold a Master's degree in Music Performance (flute) from the Academy of Music in Lodz, Poland where I also completed a Teacher's Training Course that enables me to teach as a qualified teacher in state schools. I have also been awarded Qualified Teacher Status by the British TRA.

While still in the last year of my studies in performance (2016), I undertook a teaching position as a Flute Teacher in a state music school in Kutno, Poland. During two years and a half of teaching there, I worked with pupils aged 6-16 years old, preparing them for national exams (100% passing rate), concerts and competitions. I gave one-on-one lessons and I led chamber music classes for flute duets, trios, quartets and a flute orchestra. After a year of work as a trainee teacher, I completed a national exam and I qualified as a contract teacher.
Also, I worked as a cover Flute Teacher in two independent music schools in Lodz, Poland.

I have been giving private instrumental tutoring for 7 years. I helped students progress in every aspect of flute playing and also excel in their results in national school exams and competitions.
Apart from teaching the art of flute playing, I made students grow in their general musicianship and equipped them with the fundamentals of music theory. I created a friendly, positive and fully engaging atmosphere that helped students to learn fast and without a big effort.
I love sharing the passion for playing and creating music with others and as part of my teaching, I encourage students to play duets with me. I think group music-making plays an important role in a social context and it brings lots of joy.

Apart from teaching, I have also got lots of experience as an active performer in solo, chamber and orchestral formats. I am a member of a London-based Salsa band. I have performed with Polish Camerata Orchestra, Marcin Werner Symphonic Orchestra and as part of my internship, with Lodz Philharmonic Hall Symphonic Orchestra.
I have attended numerous music master classes in Poland, Croatia, Luxembourg and England.
Although my background is classical music, I am fascinated by other musical styles such as Latin, Latin-jazz and Afro-Cuban.

I have also done a postgraduate course in Music Management at the Chopin University of Music in Warsaw, Poland.
